In 1990, a little more than two years after the death of their friend Andy Warhol, John Cale and Lou Reed released an album called “Songs for Drella" in memory of Warhol.
The last song on the album, “Hello It’s Me,” is a beautiful goodbye that acknowledges the complexity of friendship. I also think it’s one of Reed’s best songs (which is really saying something). Lou Reed died today. I’ll miss him.

This Bluetooth device is permanently implanted beneath the skin. It is flat, flexible, silicon and silicone. Tightly rolled when it’s inserted through a small incision, and then unfurled beneath the skin, it lies benignly between skin and muscle.
Through the same incision, two small tubes are attached from the implanted device to an artery and a vein. A coin sized blood fuel cell in the implant converts the blood’s glucose and oxygen from the artery to the electricity required to power the device. Used blood returns through to the vein. The digital device’s power source is the same as for all of the biological components in the body.

NASA Fires Up Rocket Engine Made of 3-D Printed Parts"NASA hot-fired a rocket engine using an injector fabricated from layers of a nickel-chromium alloy powder. That’s cool. What’s cooler? They used 3-D printing to create it. It’s the biggest printed engine component the agency has tested and it’s a big step for NASA, which hopes to implement the technique across several facets of space travel."Read more from WIRED.
