AR/VR/Holodeck?

0

What a magical time we’re living in.  With Google Glass, Oculus Rift, and now castAR, it really seems like in not too long of a time we’ll have something like the Holodeck from Star Trek. While it’s true that just yesterday I was preaching for scientists to stop their research, and leave things alone.  That … Continued

The Singularity

0

Well, not really, but a pretty good story nonetheless. 365 Tomorrow’s Mind Over Matter is worth the read.  There’s alot of morality in it, but I for one know where I would stand.  If you need any help guessing, just read the byline of this blog – “the robots are coming” That should be more … Continued

Life3

It’s Life Jim, but not as we know it.  Now I hope you have this song stuck in your head.  Anyway, James Tyrwhitt-Drake, who runs this pretty neat tumblr, Infinity Imagined, has put together a gif of an electron microscope as it zooms in on some bacteria on some algae on a super tiny crustacean … Continued

The Internet

Click the image to open the interactive version (via PennyStocks.la). I’m not entirely sure how accurate this is, but it’s still pretty neat.  It does raise some questions though.  Like where does all this data go?  Who consumes it?  Would someone miss it if it even 0.0001% of it got deleted? All of this needs … Continued

eBay Passwords

0

Last week eBay detected an attack on their databases and issued an email to all users to reset their account passwords.  That’s fine and excellent customer service.  One thing that is a clear leftover from when eBay was founded (19 years ago) is the password requirements: 6 – 20 Characters at least 2 numbers, letters … Continued

Mechanical Clock

0

There’s something to be said about the beauty of a purely mechanical piece of equipment.  Something that has moving parts, but has no electricity running through it at all.  Something that would work 1,000 years ago, 1,000 years into the future, and anywhere (that gravity is of earth’s constant of 9.8 m/s2).  I’d love to make … Continued

Star Wars Music

0

After a full fledged orchestra, this is how the Star Wars theme should be played, on an old school Church Organ.  On this day in 1977 the first Star Wars film was released to audiences, and it’s safe to say that history was made. Also, I have way more respect for organists now, there’s way … Continued

Rubber Sculptures

0

I can only imagine how this art exhibit smells. It doesn’t matter if he used new tires, or old tires, it wills till smell of rubber.  Going by some of the thread depth I’d say he used new tires, or at the very least newer tires that perhaps got ripped up in an accident or … Continued

Tile Inception

0

Or, more correctly called, Rep-tiles, not to be confused with the dinosaurs of the same name, are a quark of geometry.  Each individual tile can be combined to make the themselves.  It goes on forever.  The above set is not the only type either.  There’s many other patterns.  It’s pretty cool, not really sure what … Continued

N64 Coffee Table

0

Ah Nintendo 64, a great system, I wouldn’t call it “the greatest”, I don’t know what system, if any should get that honor.  I do know that the N64 will be remembered as the breaker of friends.  Be it Mario Kart 64, Super Smash Bros. or Goldeneye 007, friendships where put to the test.  Three … Continued
