Hot grad students in ergonomic Em4 hot tubs. Not.

The building was filled with smoke as I arrived this morning. Jesse was fixing our Goodwill 1970’s office chairs with his wire welder. Without gloves, I see.

We worked on em4 ergonomics, here with a 1:5 model. Probably a reservoir low and big enough to accommodate one or more grad students is not a good idea.

And we worked on plastic media properties. This batch looks blue from a distance, but it’s not. The closer we look, the more complex the problem. We only need to make a few million little particles the right size, color, density, and shape.

And we worried about poor Cara and her family, they’re all sick with this flu. I hope they enjoyed the fluffy snow and nice sunset this evening.
