Feeling Left Out Again: First Cybernetic Olympics to be Held in 2016

I’ve got dreams man,¬† dream of one day competing in the Olympics. The problem there is I’m not one of those people, like my brother, with any sort of natural athletic talent. The only sports I am any good at still haven’t been accepted as Olympic sports and it’s likely if they were I’d learn …

Good News: We can 3D Print Faces from DNA

A while back I told you about an artist who was collecting DNA to use in creating 3D faces for an art installation. Of course, the law can’t keep their long arms out of things so now they’re trying to use the technology to 3D print mug shots from DNS they find at crime scenes. …

I Volunteer: NASA is Planning a Mission to Europa

Okay, so it turns out the mission is only for robots. But if my consciousness has been placed in a robot then, or even if I’m just a 51% robotic cyborg I still volunteer to fly out to Europa to look for life. NASA announced an injection of $17.5 billion from the federal government (down …

Didn’t See that Coming: Crystal Ball Starts House Fire

What is the last thing you want to hear while you try to take an afternoon nap. For me it’s a smoke detector. I get to nap rarely enough that when I finally do lie down I think I would rather burn to death than have a smoke detector go off and wake me up. …

Nike Confirmed: Power Laces Coming in 2015

In Back to the Future II there is a scene where Marty McFLy is slipping on a pair of shoes that are so 80’s that you could puke. The reason we care now, being that the movie was made in 1989 is that this scene took place in 2015. Which according to this note taped …

Want: Tiny Segway Thing

Ever since I first heard about the Segway back in 2001 I’ve wanted one. The problem in getting one has been that they cost more than all the cars I’ve ever own combined. I just can’t justify the purchase. So for now, no Geek Chariot for me. Created by the company of the same name …
