New (next) generation of defibrillators and pacemakers, thanks among other things to advances in materials science and 3-D visualization. Good new for cardiac patients (like me for example).
Via Wired: A Gold Gadget That Would Let You Stop Heart Attacks With a Smartphone.
Beautiful graphs based on co-citation data through scientific journals, for articles published between 1997 and 2006. They are made with VOSviewer, a software developed to create and explore maps based on network data. Among other things you can make cluster, scatter and density analysis… long as you have Java running on your computer. The above examples come from Journal map, but have some other data sets here.

Math, meet nature. Nature, meet math. You guys should hang out more.
I will forever be imaging DNA as a helix of butterflies now.

The Literal and the Abstract | Adrianne Wilson Joergensen | The Draftery
Integrating specific programmatic desires with complex formal expression, the two projects presented below couldn’t have happened outside of 2D representation. Previously featured in SOILED, Joergensen’s drawings extract value from every line. Pay specific attention to the role of pattern in both denying space and subverting conventions masterfully deployed. Each drawing clearly coalesces the power of the diagram with the capacity of architectural representation to blur the boundaries between the literal and the abstract.
Early GIS Maps using text symbols, created with SYMAP. Published in 1975, these were used in an archaeological study of a site in Cyprus dating back to 325 BC.
