You don’t even get to keep them in a jar of formaldehyde. Your best chance at preservation is art.Read more......

    Jonathan Coleman's research group at Trinity College Dublin discovered that Silly Putty "becomes an incredibly sensitive strain detector that can track blood pressure, heart rate, and even a spider's footsteps" when mixed with graphene. Popular Science reports: That graduate student, Connor Boland -- who has since earned his doctorate -- made a batch of graphene in water and added the Silly Putty polymer. As he mixed them, the graphene sheets stuck to the polymer, creating a black goo the researchers dubbed "g-putty." When they ran an electrical current through the g-putty -- graphene-infused polymers can conduct electricity -- they discovered an extraordinary sensitivity. "If you touch it even with the slightest pressure or deformation, the electrical resistance will change significantly," Coleman says. "Even if you stretch or compress the Silly Putty by one percent of its normal size, the electrical resistance will change by a factor of five. And that's a huge change." That change ma...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from New York Post: Radiation from Japan's 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster has apparently traveled across the Pacific. Researchers reported that radioactive matter -- in the form of an isotope known as cesium-134 -- was collected in seawater samples from Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach in Oregon. The levels were extremely low, however, and don't pose a threat to humans or the environment. In 2011, a 9.0-magnitude earthquake triggered a wave of tsunamis that caused colossal damage to Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The disaster released several radioactive isotopes -- including the dangerous fission products of cesium-137 and iodine-131 -- that contaminated the air and water. The ocean was later contaminated by the radiation. But cesium-134 is the fingerprint of Fukushima due to its short half-life of two years, meaning the level is cut in half every two years. Cesium-137 has a 30-year half-life. Particles from Chernobyl, nuclear weapons t...

    Google announced in a blog post today that it will be rolling out a feature over the next few months that starts disabling Flash and displaying HTML5 content instead on certain websites. Google notes, "This change disables Adobe Flash Player unless there's a user indication that they want Flash content on specific sites, and eventually all websites will require the user's permission to run Flash." VentureBeat reports: Google has deployed the change for half of the people who are using Chrome 56 beta, which rolled out yesterday, Google technical program manager Eric Deily wrote in a blog post. Then, "in the next few days," Deily wrote, the feature will be active for 1 percent of users of Chrome 55 stable. And by February 2016 it will be live for all users in Chrome 56 stable, Deily wrote. The idea is to lessen the dependence on a web component that can cause a drag on CPU and memory usage and shorten battery life as a result. Flash also has a track record of security issues. ...

    An anonymous reader writes from a report via BleepingComputer: The security protocol that governs how virtual machines share data on a host system powered by AMD Zen processors has been found to be insecure, at least in theory, according to two German researchers. The technology, called Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV), is designed to encrypt parts of the memory shared by different virtual machines on cloud servers. AMD, who plans to ship SEV with its upcoming line of Zen processors, has published the technical documentation for the SEV technology this past April. The German researchers have analyzed the design of SEV, using this public documentation, and said they managed to identify three attack channels, which work, at least in theory. [In a technical paper released over the past weekend, the researchers described their attacks:] "We show how a malicious hypervisor can force the guest to perform arbitrary read and write operations on protected memory. We describe how to complet...

    Bose has launched a new pair of earbuds called Hearphones that augment the sounds of the world around you, letting you select what kinds of outside noises you'd like to listen to. "Hearphones users can also pick which direction those outside noises come from, with what appears to be specific emphasis on helping people hear voices better in crowded places," reports The Verge: A "Bose Hear" app was recently added to the App Store, and offers a little more detail about what Hearphones are capable of. You can turn the "world volume" up or down, and change the direction you're hearing those sounds from. There are preset modes like "television," "focused conversation," "airplane," "doctor's office," or "gym," all of which presumably block out different sounds from different directions while letting in things like speech. A user manual was also recently submitted to the FCC. No pricing or availability can be found anywhere on Bose's website or in the app. Here's some more from that app's desc...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from Mac Rumors: AirPods were originally slated to launch in October, but the wireless earphones were later delayed. Apple said it needed "a little more time" before they are ready for customers, and it has yet to provide an official update since. While the exact reason for the delay remains unclear, a person familiar with the development of AirPods told The Wall Street Journal that Apple's troubles appear to be related to its "efforts to chart a new path for wireless headphones," in addition to resolving what happens when users lose one of the earpieces or the battery dies. The Wall Street Journal reports: "A person familiar with the development of the AirPod said the trouble appears to stem from Apple's effort to chart a new path for wireless headphones. In most other wireless headphones, only one earpiece receives a signal from the phone via wireless Bluetooth technology; it then transmits the signal to the other earpiece. Apple has said AirPod ea...

    Uber treats its drivers as Victorian-style "sweated labor", with some taking home less than the minimum wage, according to a report into its working conditions based on the testimony of dozens of drivers. From a report on The Guardian: Drivers at the taxi-hailing app company reported feeling forced to work extremely long hours, sometimes more than 70 a week, just to make a basic living, said Frank Field, the Labor MP and chair of the work and pensions committee. Field received testimony from 83 drivers who said they often took home significantly less than the "national living wage" after paying their running costs. The report says they described conditions that matched the Victorian definition of sweated labor: "when earnings were barely sufficient to sustain existence, hours of labor were such as to make lives of workers periods of ceaseless toil; and conditions were injurious to the health of workers and dangerous to the public." ...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from CyberScoop: Georgia's secretary of state has claimed the Department of Homeland Security tried to breach his office's firewall and has issued a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson asking for an explanation. Brian Kemp issued a letter to Johnson on Thursday after the state's third-party cybersecurity provider detected an IP address from the agency's Southwest D.C. office trying to penetrate the state's firewall. According to the letter, the attempt was unsuccessful. The attempt took place on Nov. 15, a few days after the presidential election. The office of the Georgia Secretary of State is responsible for overseeing the state's elections. "At no time has my office agreed to or permitted DHS to conduct penetration testing or security scans of our network," Kemp wrote in the letter, which was also sent to the state's federal representatives and senators. "Moreover, your department has not contacted my office since this unsuccessful i...

    Police have now one less tool to monitor users on Twitter. The Daily Dot is reporting that Twitter has cut ties with a third-party social network surveillance firm, citing company policies intended to safeguard users against the surreptitious collection of data by law enforcement agencies. From the report: The severed contract follows Twitter nullifying the commercial data agreements of two other leading social-network-surveillance firms, Geofeedia and Snaptrends. Previously unreported, Twitter severed the access of Media Sonar, an Ontario-based company founded in 2012, which has sold surveillance software to police departments across the United States. Nineteen local government services are known to have each spent at least $10,000 on the software between 2014 and 2016, according to documents acquired under state open-records laws. Twitter informed the Daily Dot this week that it had terminated Media Sonar's access to its public API in October. If the company attempts to create other ...

    Tycho: I occasionally try to utilize my notoriety to get shit.  I feel my alignment shifting when I do, a grinding pressure, a sense that perhaps my momma raised me wrong after all, so I don’t try to run game with great frequency.  In the context I was raised in it’s of a piece with “putting on airs,” like literacy.  When I attempt to use my Ultimate, I tell you here; as often as not, it doesn’t work at all.  At PAX West, a few months before the official release of Star Wars: Destiny, I had a chance to drop into a demo during the show and it…...

    New Comic: As Father And Son

    Tycho: And when I say Luigi™ Jump Pin, I’m referring to this one right here: As your pin sommelier, I would say that it pairs well with our Super Mario Bros.™ World 1-1 Pin Set. (CW)TB

    Gabe: Today’s strip was another that I did live on Twitch. I happened to draw this one on Monday which is when Tycho and Ryan do their new Hearthstone stream. You can watch me do all the sketching and most of the inking in this one: Watch live video from on www.twitch.tv Then I took a break while they played some Hearthstone. The idea is that Ryan is teaching Tycho how to play Hearthstone and it must be working. I actually came in and challenged Tycho to try and win back control of the Twitch channel a little early but I got wrecked. Watch live video from on www.twitch.tv I ended up…...

    Tycho: A lot of Virtual Reality games currently are essentially a cool interaction concept, unfettered by much of anything else.  I don’t have a problem with this necessarily, because in some ways VR has made us all toddlers and we must learn to contend with our bodies all over again.  It’s okay to start by playing with blocks; indeed, it’s traditional. There hasn’t been something like a Resident Evil, is what I’m trying to say.  But there is one now, for better or for worse, and you can grab the demo whether you have VR or not.  This kind of money…...

    New Comic: PSI

    Tycho: In order to fully grasp the sociopolitical texture of Final Fantasy XV, it’s probably important to watch the movie.  And maybe the anime.  I didn’t do those things.  I just jumped in with both feet into what feels like a Final Fantasy MMO for the most part, but…  I think I’m okay with that.  I’m at least ten hours okay with it, judging by the weekend.  Big takeaways: This game has meticulous, overwhelming, almost pornographic 3d models of food.  And, It’s a world where people have swords AND cars AND cellphones. Gabe wondered…...

    New Comic: Doppelgaber

    Tycho: We’ve been Twitching constantly lately, but we’ve also been streaming games and other stuff from the office.  I’m hooked on it.  Wild dogs couldn’t drag me away.  Well, they probably could.  I guess it depends on how many wild dogs.  In truth, any value for wildDogs over 1 is probably a deal breaker.  But I do like hanging out on there, and hopefully it provides some subtle nutrient for those who gather there. We’ve played Shadow of Mordor: Game of the Year Edition (GOTYE…?) the last couple times.  It’s not new or…...

    Rise and shine: it's not just something I put off doing each and every morning. It's also a video game -- an eye-catching run-and-gun published by Adult Swim Games, in fact -- that's coming to PC and Xbox One on January 13, 2016. "Rise" is a child, and "Shine" is his gun. Hence, Rise & Shine. This is "a true 'think and gun' that combines elements of arcade shooters, bullet hells, and puzzle platformers to create a new blend of strategy and viscera. Switch between Shine's add-ons to solve puzzles that redefine what bullets can do. Guide projectiles through intricate mazes, electrify damaged equipment to discover new pathways, and juggle 8-bit fruit because why not?" The developers at Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team previously contributed to games like Plants vs. Zombies and Worms. Th...

    We've shown you some impressive Minecraft projects before, but this one takes things to a whole new level. Minecraft has been great for people who want to look backwards at the history of video games. It's easy to go and build a sprite out of blocks, since they match up perfectly with the pixels all game characters used to be rendered with. YouTuber SethBling has gone several steps further though, creating a working Atari 2600 emulator in Minecraft's cre...

    Even if you aren't all that keen on what you've seen of Resident Evil 7, Capcom's Beginning Hour demo is worth experiencing. It's been locked down on PlayStation 4, but as of today, it's now also available on Xbox One (and will soon be released on Steam). Queue that sucker up. It's only a few gigs. I actually need to give it another go, for a few reasons. My first attempt at the most recent version of the demo ended with a certain something making quick work of me (I only had the axe, so... yeah). I managed several good swings but the on-edge sensation of playing ...

    I've been looking for an excuse to get back into the Binding of Isaac and it seems like that chance will soon be here. An update on the Binding of Isaac blog confirms that the next expansion, Afterbirth+, will be released on Steam on January 3. Console players will have to wait until spring 2017 to get be trampled and abused by the new expansion. A new trailer sets the tone perfectly. Yikes.  ...

    Nintendo didn't have many new games this holiday season, but the company is doing what it can with what it's got. This Sunday, shoppers at Best Buy stores will have the opportunity to try out some demos for two of the major games Nintendo shipped last month: Pokémon Sun and Moon, and Paper Mario: Color Splash.  The demonstrations will run on December 11 from 10AM to 1PM local time, and there's a list of participating locations at the official site. Pokémon Sun and Moon have been ...

    After 20 years publishing video games, Majesco has officially bowed out of the industry. It's not disappearing entirely, though; it's just operating with an entirely new purpose. As reported by Polygon, Majesco has merged with PolarityTE -- a biotech company that specializes in regenerative tissue technology. It seems as if Polarity will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Majesco, but Majesco will drop its name and operate under the Polarity banner. The ownership and naming dynamic may be a little confusing, but one thing is certain: Majesco is squarely out of the entertainment business. This news probably won't shock anyone who has followed Majesco's monetary situation over the past few years. Majesco had been in constant financial peril. Ev...

    Someone needs to send Green Man Gaming the memo that a Flash Sale is suppose to convey the message a sale is short and not long-lasting. I guess "Ongoing Sale" doesn't have the same punch. Anyway, GMG has extended last week's "Flash Sales" with discounts on recent releases like 23% off Civilization VI and Battlefield 1 along with larger discounts on older titles like 82% off the Mass Effect Trilogy. At $8.99, even with all the potential missing DLC you're still getting a grand ol' adventure, particularly if you're new to PC gaming. Dragon Age: Inquisition (Origin) — $9.99  (list price $20) ...

    When thinking about Japanese video game conventions, there's a certain monstrosity of a show that everyone defaults to. Tokyo Game Show is the one that everyone knows, but there's another that keeps steadily growing and making a name for itself. That convention is Kyoto-based BitSummit, an annual showcase of Japanese indie games. Its organizers just announced plans for the fifth annual BitSummit. It'll take place on the weekend of May 20, 2017. For the fourth consecutive year, the Miyako Messe convention center will play host. Somewhat quietly, BitSummit has become Japan's second largest annual gaming show. Attendance last year was around 6,000 -- hundreds of thousands fewer than Tokyo Game Show. It's also a lot less unwieldy and more comfortable than TGS. It's a convention where you can actually play games instead of standing in line all day. We attended in 2014 and were fascinated by ...

    According to a report from CNBC, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sold fewer physical copies than its predecessor, Black Ops III. This news comes as little surprise, considering the tepid critical and fan reaction to Infinite Warfare. Day-one impressions were primarily negative, with the conversation surrounding the game only getting worse since its release earlier last month. Sales dropped almost 50% from last year, falling "17% shy of expectations," according to Doug Creutz, a gaming analyst from the Cowen Group. This was corroborated by a second, anonymous Wall Street source. "[According to the source,] November's NPD Call of Duty unit sales were down 51 year over y...

    When news broke last month that five Ubisoft executives were accused of insider trading by a French stock market regulation committee, things didn't look bright for those men. They offloaded some of their shares of Ubisoft in the weeks before the publisher announced delays that caused its value to drop by 25 percent. It seemed like a cut-and-dry case, a textbook example. Today, The Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) ruled on the matter and found all five executives guilty of insider trading. As reported by Kotaku, they were all hit with sanctions of varying amounts. Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallet was fined the most at €700,000. The others figures were €200,000 fo...

    In 2014, it seemed like chef Justin Warner’s star couldn’t rise any higher.

By 2015, he’d lose both.Read more......

    Functional programming is becoming more and more popular, and more and more controversial. JavaScript has functional properties, sure — you can treat functions as first order objects, using them to filter and transform lists, easily implement event-driven systems, or build reactive programs. But it wasn't designed to be a functional programming environment, not really — it does support recursion, but not as effectively as languages like Lisp or Erlang. At any rate, even if you don't write functional JavaScript, you'll run into it during your career, and you should learn what to look for and how these systems work....

You're welcome to join us. Why yet another language? Because there are no object-oriented languages on the market that are really object-oriented, to my knowledge. Here are the things I think do not belong in a pure object-oriented language:...

    I've been working on a few project Euler exercises to improve my knowledge of C++. I've written the following function: int a = 0,b = 0,c = 0; for (a = 1; a <= SUMTOTAL; a++) { for (b = a+1; b <= SUMTOTAL-a; b++) { c = SUMTOTAL-(a+b); if (c == sqrt(pow(a,2)+pow(b,2)) && b < c) { std::cout << "a: " << a << " b: " << b << " c: "<< c << std::endl; std::cout << a * b * c << std::endl; } } } This computes in 17 milliseconds. However, if I change the line if (c == sqrt(pow(a,2)+pow(b,2)) && b < c) to if (c == sqrt((a*a)+(b*b)) && b < c) the computation takes place in 2 milliseconds. Is there some obvious implementation detail of pow(int, int) that I'm missing which makes the first expression compute so much slow...

    We will all be used to the thermoelectric effect in our electronic devices. The property of a junction of dissimilar conductors to either generate electricity from a difference in temperature (the Seebeck effect), or heating or cooling the junction (the Peltier effect). Every time we use a thermocouple or one of those mini beer fridges, we’re taking advantage of it. Practical commercial thermoelectric arrays take the form of a grid of semiconductor junctions wired in series, with a cold side and a hot side.

Instructables user [PatrickD126] couldn’t find a write-up on how to connect Amazon’s Alexa service, and Echo to his Raspberry Pi home security system, so his handy tutorial should get you up to speed for your own projects. [PatrickD126] shows how loading some software onto the Raspberry Pi is readily accomplished along with enabling Alexa to communicate more directly with the Pi. From there, it’s a …read more...

    We are continually amazed by the things people do with LEGO and Technics, especially those that require incredible engineering skill. There’s an entire community based around building Great Ball Contraptions, which are LEGO Rube Goldberg machines that move tiny basketballs and soccer balls from one place to another. Except for a few rules about the input and output, the GBC horizons are boundless. Famed GBC creator [Akiyuki] recently built a GBC module that’s designed to show the movement of strain wave gear systems. These types of gear systems are used in industrial applications where precision is vital. Strain wave gears …read more...

    Let’s face it. Printing in plastic is old hat. It is fun. It is useful. But it isn’t really all that exotic anymore. The real dream is to print using metal. There are printers that handle metal in different ways, but they aren’t usually practical for the conventional hacker. Even a “cheap” metal printer costs over $100,000. But there are ways you can almost get there with a pretty garden-variety printer. There’s no shortage of people mixing things into PLA filament. If you have a metal hot end and don’t mind wearing out nozzles, you can get PLA filament with …read more...

    Bodo Hoenen and his family had an incredible scare. His daughter, Lorelei, suddenly became ill and quickly went from a happy and healthy girl to one fighting just to breathe and unable to move her own body. The culprit was elevated brain and spinal pressure due to a condition called AFM. This is a rare polio-like condition which is very serious, often fatal. Fortunately, Lorelei is doing much better. But this health crisis resulted in nearly complete paralysis of her left upper arm. Taking an active role in the health of your child is instinctual with parents. Bodo’s family worked …read more...

    This is the continuation of a series where I create a PCB in every software suite imaginable. Last week, I took a look at KiCad, made the schematic representation for a component, and made a schematic for the standard reference PCB I’ve been using for these tutorials. Now it’s time to take that schematic, assign footprints to parts, and design a circuit board. All PCB design tools have different methods of associating the schematic view of a component with how it will be represented on the finished board. Eagle uses libraries that contain both a schematic view and PCB view …read more...

    There are times when a mechanism comes to your attention that you have to watch time and time again, to study its intricacies and marvel at the skill of its designer. Sometimes it can be a complex mechanism such as a musical automaton or a mechanical loom, but other times it can be a device whose apparent simplicity hides its underlying cleverness. Such a moment came for us today, and it’s one we have to share with you. RainCube is a satellite, as its name suggests in the CubeSat form factor and carrying radar instruments to study Earthly precipitation. One …read more...
