Humanoid Robot With AI Seeks Same

There are less than positive implications sometimes when a Humanoid Robot With AI meets the cold, cruel world. This interpretation on how it might work out is not exactly comforting to the intelligence at the core of this story, and should not make the rest of us feel very easy about it. When the time […]

New York Public Gigabit Rollout

New York City is rolling out its LinkNCY FREE Gigabit Wifi access points, which take the place of existing phone booths.

More Steampunk Pictures

As I said, when we were at Steampunk unLimited earlier this year we took a lot of photos, and this time the same two pictures are being modified using two different tools from Painter Essentials. While the results of these two processes look similar when you look at the images they created, the parts of […]

The Rufus Cuff Prototype

To me, the Rufus Cuff looks like someone took an Android based smart phone, mounted it on a wristband, and rotated the buttons to a different edge so they worked for that positioning.

Something to Do: Movies

Two movies in different genres but with a link between the protagonists this week; Pan is the latest reiteration of the Peter Pan classic story, giving it a Prequel spin, showing how it got to the beginning of the event sequence we all know and love. Steve Jobs tells the tale of another who refused […]
