DIY "Shoes" for Truck Wheels, to Avoid Killing Small Animals

When I borrowed a GMC Sierra for use on our farm, that truck's comprehensive Surround Vision camera system proved incredibly useful; it's the reason I didn't accidentally flatten any of our 200 free-range chickens and ducks. However, camera systems like that one only let you see the creatures, so that you can brake and wait for them to pass. But photographer Chris Bray had a similar-but-different problem: Living as he does on Christmas Island, which 40 million red crabs migrate across each year,...

Panasonic’s VR glasses are living proof that virtual reality headsets can look ‘spectacular’

Now here’s a pair of VR glasses that don’t look like a toaster mounted on your face. Styled to resemble a wonderful pair of steampunk-style aviators, Panasonic has done for the VR headset industry what the Snap spectacles did for Google Glass (remember that?)With an undeniably better form factor, and better image quality too, Panasonic’s VR glasses are classier and well, ‘glassier’ (as opposed to the massive ski-goggles that most VR headsets look like). Fitted with micro-OLED panels on the insid...

Adversarial Argument Might Not Serve Philosophical Debate

The lack of progress in adversarial philosophical exchange might rest on a simple but problematic division of labour: in professional settings such as talks, seminars and papers, we standardly criticise others’, rather than our own, views. At the same time, we clearly risk our reputation much more when proposing an idea rather than criticising it. This systematically disadvantages proponents of (new) ideas. – Aeon

Royole’s smart speaker has a wrap-around curved display… and I’m honestly wondering why.

Designed to be like an Amazon Echo Show but in the shape of an Amazon Echo, Royole’s new Mirage smart speaker tries to integrate flexible displays into smart speakers. The Mirage is a cylindrically shaped smart-speaker (with a floating halo) that responds to Amazon’s Alexa, but the most noticeable element about it is the screen that envelops nearly half the device, wrapping around from side to side. Royole’s always been an advocate of flexible electronics, with a folding tablet, phone, and eve...

Is The Book-To-Movie Trend Hurting Storytelling?

We are now in the mature stage of a book-to-film boom that is quietly transforming how Americans read and tell stories—and not for the better. The power of this force is hard to quantify because intellectual property is now being bought in Hollywood in such unprecedented volume and diversity of source material. Almost all written works that achieve prominence today (and many more that don’t) will be optioned, and increasingly it is becoming rare for film and television projects to move ...

Why We’re Fascinated By How-To Videos

What are people looking to do? The most popular searches, by one analysis, range from the achingly prosaic to the exceedingly specific—from “how to kiss” to “how to make a rainbow-loom starburst bracelet.” You can learn how to boil water, field strip an AR-15 rifle, or fly a 747. But stories abound of people—usually kids—achieving impressive proficiency in everything from opera singing to dubstep dancing by simply copying what they have seen in YouTube videos.
