Binary Keyboard

The latest development in computer hardware, the binary keyboard, will change the world of computing as we know it.

Man In Serious Condition After Attack By Hacked Toothbrush

Having your doughnut maker, your wedding ring, and your toothbrush connected to the internet seems like a really great idea—until a hacker gets involved.

Heraclitus in the Digital Age

The Pre-Socratic philosopher Heraclitus is known especially for his statement that Πάντα ῥεῖ, that all things flow.

Precision Pizzas

Marvel at the precision of the ingredient placement on this Precise Pizza.

Back in the bad-old-days, pizza was assembled with an unacceptable, but unavoidable, lack of precision. Ingredients were scattered on top of the cheese with a truly shocking lack of precision, and even the dough itself was extended with no attempt at precision: the diameter of a pizza could vary as much as 2.3 centimeters from […]
