#165/365: Spin-ster.

Keeping with the theme of technology, here is something that I don’t see everyday. This is not a contraption from some steam-punk movie. I polled my scientist colleagues and none could guess it at first glance. Scientific instruments have become more streamlined and utilitarian in their design. This rotor of a centrifuge is half a century old and still functional. Sometimes, cutting edge scientific research requires solid foundation of age-old tested technology. (iPhone).
