The revolution won't be televised, but it may get livestreamed over Google Glass.
At least, it's taking a step in that direction on Wednesday as the writer and artist Molly Crabapple livestreams her latest drawing project with a hacked pair of Google Glass. Inspired by Edgar Degas' paintings of dancers, Crabapple will be drawing the adult film actress and aerialist Stoya as she moves through her warm-up routine.
And yes, Stoya will be clothed.
The project, called "Glass Gaze: An online performance with hacked Glass and Stoya," is multi-faceted. It looks at the relationship between the … Read more
By now, you'll have come to realize that the idea of Amazon sending your diapers by drone is brilliant. A brilliant public relations idea, not a brilliant idea for actually delivering diapers.
Groupon, however, clearly sees this as a threat to its business and our society. So, the company put its collective craniums together in order to come up with a new delivery method that will be fast, but more people-friendly than Amazon's drones.
The Grouponderers decided that the best way of looking forward was to look back. History has already seen some excellent ideas for propelling objects … Read more
A recent "Doctor Who"-themed wedding rocked what may be two of the most impressive wedding cakes ever created: matching bride-and-groom life-size Daleks. These weren't just structures with a little cake on top. They were all cake, with circular boards and small wood poles to maintain structural integrity.
The impressive cakes are the work of Dinkeydoodle Designs by Dawn Butler, a specialty cake maker in England. It took Butler and a team of three assistants a week of constant work to make the cakes. The groom's Dalek cake alone is made from 24 layers of vanilla cake.… Read more
"Doctor Who" fans sure know how to work a petition.
You don't have to be a "Doctor Who" nut to know this is a good idea. The planet is currently known as "HD 106906 b," which sounds more like a really good password than an actual name. The planet is currently the most distantly orbiting planet around a single Sun-like star that astronomers have been able to identify.
In today's world, love is measured by the like, the follower, and the retweet.
If you don't understand why, you're not really human anymore.
I come, therefore, to offer advice on how to attract more love to your essence. Twitter love, that is.
In front of me I have the results of a research performed by TrackMaven, a company that says it's involved in "competitive intelligence." I don't think this has anything to do with those tests where you have to guess A, B, C, or D.
TrackMaven looked at 1.7 million … Read more
Building guns out of Lego is as old as the plastic bricks themselves. But Lego fanatic Zazi Nombies is particularly good at it.
The YouTube user recently has been creating weapons that feature in Call of Duty: Ghosts in response to fan requests.
Die-hard "Star Trek" fans may remember the franchise's very first game released in 1979, called Phaser Strike, for Milton Bradley's Microvision. Though a far cry from any modern conception of gaming, Phaser Strike still retains the intrinsic relationship with the 1960s "Star Trek" and its vision of the far-off future, now ripe for nostalgia for everything from the early days of television to science fiction's steady influence on pop culture.
Thirty-four years later, "Star Trek" is returning to its retro roots -- though with a bit of a technological upgrade -- with Trexels. The new video game venture will debut on the App Store Wednesday at 9 p.m. PT (Thursday at 12 a.m. ET) in the form of a $2.99 iOS game for iPhone and iPad. Equipped with an 8-bit art style and a time-shifting plot line, Trexels mashes up the series' later characters from "The Next Generation" with those of the original crew. … Read more
We are our phones. Our phones are us.
Which means that whatever we keep inside those smart little things encapsulates every aspect of our troubled characters.
Clearly, there are some aspects that we'd like to keep well hidden. Which is why a fascinating piece of research has attempted to discern just where our weakest point lies.
It asked 1,000 apparently honest Americans what was the one thing … Read more
It's time to break out the blankets and troop outside of city lights -- the annual Geminid meteor shower will arrive toward the end of this week and promises to be a spectacular show.
Geminid meteor showers are the most vivid of all showers -- full of fireballs and between 100 to 120 meteors per hour. They're also viewable from any point on Earth. So, remember the Perseids shower in August? This one could be even better.
Most astronomers believe that the Geminid light show originates from the remnants and dust of a rocky object known as 3200 … Read more
