Paralyzed woman walks again with 3D-printed robotic exoskeleton - 3D Systems, in collaboration with Ekso Bionics, has created a 3D-printed robotic exoskeleton that has restored the ability to walk in a woman paralyzed from the waist down. The Ekso-Suit was trialled and demonstrated by Amanda Boxtel, who was told by her doctor that she’d never walk again after a skiing accident in 1992.

28-year old Cola the cat is set to celebrate a milestone birthday - turning 140 in cat years and being crowned Britain’s oldest cat. Until now a cat called Wadsworth, from Ravensden, Bedfordshire, was thought to hold the crown of Britain’s oldest living feline - after celebrating his 27th birthday this year. But Cola, who was born in in November 1985, trumps him by several months.
this cat is older than me. he’s probably older than you too. just think about that.
This is Noah. Noah is gender queer. On any given day his answer to the question “Do you want to be a boy or a girl?” changes.
He loves superheroes, fast cars, rough housing and toy cars like most toddler boys. He also loves makeup, nail polish, pretty dresses and barbies.
I am Noah’s mother. Some of our family thinks its funny, others are supportive… Then there are those that yelled at me or try to tell him that he can’t like the things that make him happy.
Those are the people that hurt us the most.
Noah & I have and probably will continue to receive hate from the general population simply for being happy and true to ourselves. But I will love, support and protect Noah every day no matter what: as a boy, a girl or a mix there of.
