Public Service Announcement

This one’s done by Rachel Stevens. http://www.rachelgetsfruity.com/flash.html You know, I think they’re on to something here. Instead of the usual PSAs where we get bombarded with statistics by pompous ugly people, they should just have hot chicks in their underwear telling us to exercise more, eat greens, recycle and generally make the world a Better […]

Creepy Face

Dominique Mouseover, clickety-click..

Fun with Google Maps

Pyramids Sweet. If you haven’t used Maps before – you can click and drag the map as well as zoom in and out. Other places: Area 51 Statue of Liberty WTC NYC (zoom in) Burning oil wells in Iraq (zoom + might be gone after next update..) Uluru (Ayers Rock) SR71 Blackbirds (center of image) […]

Zombie dogs

US Researchers have managed to drain the blood from a dog, replace it with a saline solution, thereby officially killing the dog and then, using electric shocks, oxygen and replacing the blood, bring it back to life… several times. Apparently none the worse for wear. They want to use this technology to store soldiers with […]

How to have a Saville Row suit made for you

Yes, you want the best of the best – the absolute finest in men’s wear: a handcrafted, bespoke Saville Row suit! Be prepared to lay down GBP 2000 at least, three fittings and recieve the best money can buy. But how? with who? This site tells all…

Agriculture is the root of all evils

To science we owe dramatic changes in our smug self-image. Astronomy taught us that our earth isn’t the center of the universe but merely one of billions of heavenly bodies. From biology we learned that we weren’t specially created by God but evolved along with millions of other species. Now archaeology is demolishing another sacred […]

Huckapoo!

It’s sounds to me like a word for describing the act of coughing up feces, but no – it’s the name of a manufactured girl group targeting 8-year olds with a significantly sub-average IQ. Hey, it’s a HUUUGE segment, right, don’t diss this shit! Check out the awesomeness that is Huckapoo here. Turn the volume […]

Lukes Hands!

The Bionic Man with moving metal arms controlled by thought and with sensitivity are now available at the mad scientist near you…

Darknet

Anyone with an interest in how our digital freedoms are being whittled away, how the music, movie and television landscapes are about to change forever, or how a new, empowered generation of users (mostly young people) see media differently than the older crowd, would benefit from marking up their copy of Darknet (bring two yellow […]

Japan wants robo moonbase

TOKYO — Japan wants to help build a lunar base and populate it with advanced versions of today’s humanoid robots by around 2025, according to the head of the nation’s space agency. The idea is more than a pipe-dream; it is part of a 20-year plan, called JAXA Vision 2025, that was drawn up by […]

3D Scanner for $90

Using a Laser (yes! it has a laser in it!) and a turntable you CAN in fact scan stuff and make a 3D model of it. Well, if it’s small. And you don’t mind the lack of smoothing. Or waiting. But hey, it’s v2 of 3 and if he gets it right, it’s what I […]

Dead Frog Webserver

Absolutely not for the faint hearted of us. Damon Hearst + technology.

Homebuilt Aircon

Not quite as effective, but it only costs $30 or so…

Video Game Commercials

The TV ads people make to promote their products – these can get a bit strange at times, especially the Japanese ones…

Bluetooth hacked – again

Well, if you fake your ID to that of a trusted device and pair with another device, you get a key sent, which you can crack in 0.06 seconds. Feed it in and you don’t have to enter the PIN. Oops.

Big is Beautiful

And natural is excellent! [nsfw]

Isn’t this a gauss gun?

Firing plates at 76000 mph!

Sailors go for the pirates

Ram ’em and sink ’em!

Microwave Grape lightning

Nuke some grapes and see the plasma! There’s some other ways to create plasma in your microwave, but I can’t find them right now…

Kind Girls

How nice of these beautiful kind girls to pose naked on camera for us on a clean, pop-up free site 🙂

Science Fiction Science

The Liverpudlians have done it! Created by The University of Liverpool Library with the support of the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the SF Hub aims to facilitate research into science fiction and its related literary genres. Loads of sci-fi stuff

Diffusion of Innovations

How is it that some technological innovations get taken up by the masses, and others don’t? How important are innovators and early adopters in this? Well Mr. Rogers apparently wrote the bible on this: Rogers, E.M. (1995). Diffusion of innovations (4th edition). The Free Press. New York. Here’s the theory laid out in bare bones […]

Love at first bite

This couple has an interesting way of expressing their commitment to each other. Don’t read on a full stomach. http://www.bmezine.com/news/pubring/20050401.html
