Customer Buys Used Tesla, Tesla Then Remotely Deletes His Autopilot and Self-Driving Features

I'm currently in the market for a used pickup truck for the farm, and seeking something that's 4WD. Imagine that I buy one--and then the original manufacturer decides to magically delete the 4WD capability because I didn't pay full sticker.That's essentially happened to a guy named Alec, but with Autopilot rather than 4WD. As told by Jalopnik, a fellow named Alec purchased a used 2017 Tesla Model S (presumably at less than sticker) equipped with both Enhanced Autopilot and Tesla's Self-Driving f...

Yea or Nay? A Self-Lining, Bag-Sealing Trash Can

Take a look at this: via Gfycat I have to put this into the "Looks cool--oh wait a sec, this is dumb" category. As pleasing as it is to watch a mechanical contraption conduct a fairly complicated (compared to what a toddler can do, say) task, nothing about this appeals to me.First off the can is tiny by U.S. standards; whereas the average kitchen trash bag here is 13 gallons, this thing's capacity is 15.5 liters, or about 4 gallons. You could argue that smaller trash cans might prompt you to g...

Nike's "Space Hippie" Sneaker Line Made from Cut-Offs, Recycled Bits and Leftovers

Nike's latest project started with "in situ resource utilization," a space exploration ethos where you expect no re-supply, and improvise with whatever's on hand; think MacGyver, or the numerous hacks Mark Watney pulled off in The Martian. Nike's attempt to manifest ISRU principles has yielded the Space Hippie, a line of sneakers essentially made of trash.Not just any trash, of course. Nike's designers used a combination of recycled products and their own factories' manufacturing waste; recycled...

Amidst Toilet Smashing Trend in Japan, Officials Reject Stainless Steel for Hilarious Reasons and Opt for Cast Iron Toilets

Japan is a super-safe, orderly country, but petty theft and a form of littering are surprisingly common there. When I lived in Saitama, a safe suburb outside of Tokyo, my bicycle was stolen from in front of my building--twice. And in Tokyo proper, I observed that passersby would often throw trash into the baskets attached to the front of a parked bicycle. Totally rude! But you'd see bike after parked bike with their baskets filled to overflowing with discarded bottles, wrappers and tissues.And a...

OTOTO’s tipsy bottle-stopper knows how to have a good time!

Almost like a before-and-after of every Friday-night done well, Ototo’s bottle-stopper features an adorable wino perched on the stopper with a glass, who immediately goes limp when you press the stopper down. Place the stopper on the bottle and Wasted stays upright. Try to take the stopper off and he becomes a dazed heap! Inspired by a popular wooden toy that uses elastic tautness to keep toy-characters upright and immediately have them collapse when the elastic running through them stops being ...

Alienware’s new gaming mouse looks like a peripheral from the periphery of the universe

If you want to see form explorations at their best, you better either look at transportation design, or at computer mice. The computer mouse, which has evolved so much since its debut in 1964, still pretty much does the same thing, but has seen improvements in function and evolutions in form that make it a great form-study product. Mice are almost always designed to be ergonomic, but they can be as basic-looking as Apple’s Magic Mouse, to absurd-yet-comfortable like the Logitech MX Vertical, o...

This Particular Moment: A Culture Of Meanness

“Our contemporary moment is a culture of meanness. It’s not based on facts. It’s not based on conversation… it’s destructive to our democracy and our institutions. Notice the bags under my eyes? That’s what it’s about.” – Artnet

Why Some Artists Are Participating In Saudi Arabia’s DesertX

The murder of journalist Jamal Kashoggi at the purported direction of crown prince Mohammad bin Salman in 2018 led several prominent board members to withdraw from the government-backed event. Now, the participants who remain are left wondering whether the world will be able to see through the shadow of the crime to the art. – Artnet

Do What You Love? There’s A Dark Side To That Idea

Nothing exemplifies the promises and perils of self-actualised work better than the cultural conversations around ‘do what you love’. The injunction to ‘do what you love’ has had no shortage of critics, who point out its classist nature, advocate for a clearer delineation between work and life, and remind us that burnout might just be the flipside of self-actualised work. Not all agree that work should be a calling or that we should devote ourselves wholly to work. – Aeon

Montreal Has Two Major Orchestras Led By Star Conductors. And They’re Thriving

Nowhere else in North America can you find two symphony orchestras (as opposed to chamber orchestras) with touring schedules and substantial discographies led by conductors of international repute. Both enjoy government and corporate support. And if they attract different audiences, this dynamic can be taken as complementary rather than adversarial. – Montreal Gazette

Phil Kennicott’s Ruminations On The Power Of Music Amidst Grief

“When grief loosens its hold, you return to the world you once knew, only to find it transformed by the thing that is missing; when, at the end of the Goldberg Variations, Bach repeats the aria with which it began, it is utterly transfigured. It is like the river in which one can never step foot twice, and Bach seems to say: ‘You’ve never heard this thing you think you know so well’.” – Van
