Snapchat’s huge redesign will reportedly arrive next month

By its own account, Snapchat isn’t attracting anywhere near the amount of users it should be. To ensure its app isn’t fully eclipsed by Instagram, it’s planning a major redesign that will make the notoriously difficult service “easier to use.” Although CEO Evan Spiegel said the revamp would focus on Story playback and surfacing original shows, he stopped short of announcing a launch date. Regardless, we now have a tentative ETA, courtesy of Business Insider’s sources. The update will reportedly land on December 4th and (naturally) will bring with it some major changes.

Whereas, the app will still open to the camera, it will reportedly no longer separate your friends’ messages and stories in tabs to the left and the right. Instead, the redesign will bundle user communications in a feed on the left. A swipe to the right, will lead to crowdsourced stories (from music, sports, and global events), along with content from Snapchat’s media partners (like MTV and CNN). This section will reportedly also include celeb stories. That’s a lot to cram into one tab, but Snap will reportedly employ algorithms to curate the “endless feed of videos” to your tastes. Whether that will result in an outcry from its media partners remains to be seen — right now they’re all stacked equally on the far-right Discover section.

Snap didn’t confirm the details in the report, but the info seems to follow what the company hinted at in its earnings call on Tuesday. Still, the planned launch date and inner workings could change abruptly.

Kevlar cartilage could help you recover from joint injuries

It can be difficult to fully recover from knee injuries or other damage to your joints, if just because there hasn't been an artificial replacement for cartilage that can withstand as much punishment as the real thing. That may not be an issue in the long run, though: scientists have developed a Kevlar-based hydrogel that behaves like natural cartilage. It mixes a network of Kevlar nanofibers with polyvinyl alcohol to absorb water at rest (like real cartilage does in idle moments) and become extremely resistant to abuse, but releases it under stress -- say, a workout at the gym.

You don't even need a lot of it to replicate a human body's sturdiness and overall functionality. A material with 92 percent water is about as tough as real cartilage, while a 70 percent mix is comparable to rubber. Previous attempts at simulating cartilage couldn't hold enough water to transport nutrients to cells, which made them a poor fit for implants.

There's a long way to go before the material becomes useful. Researchers are hoping to patent the substance and find companies to make it a practical reality. The implications are already quite clear, mind you. If it works as well in patients as it does in lab experiments, it could lead to cartilage implants that are roughly as good as the real tissue they replace. A serious knee injury might not put an end to your running days.
