Exapted Force Mug
$10.00 – $13.00
Inspired by the whirligig, a children’s toy, bioengineers at Stanford developed a blood centrifuge that costs twenty cents and requires no electricity. Getting a blood diagnostic in remote or impoverished places is slow or even impossible, when it requires expensive equipment that’s miles away, often with no roads. Realizing the physics of creating enough spin had already been solved, they built a blood entrifuge out of paper, twine, and plastic. The test results are published in the Jan. 10 issue of Nature Biomedical Engineering.
Whether you’re drinking your morning coffee, evening tea, or something in between – this mug’s for you! It’s sturdy and glossy with a vivid print that’ll withstand the microwave and dishwasher.
