MIT engineers design touch-sensing glove that 'feels' pressure and maps stimuli

When you pick up a balloon, the pressure to keep hold of it is different from what you would exert to grasp a jar. And now engineers at MIT and elsewhere have a way to precisely measure and map such subtleties of tactile dexterity.The team has designed a new touch-sensing glove that can "feel" pressure and other tactile stimuli. The inside of the glove is threaded with a system of sensors that detects, measures, and maps small changes in pressure across the glove. The individual sensors are high...

Last Week Tonight is the Show We Need, Not the Show We Necessarily Deserve

I remember when I heard John Oliver was getting an HBO show, I was initially disappointed. I thought what I really wanted was him to take over for Craig Ferguson. But I was younger and more foolish then. No talk show could possibly hold a candle to what Last Week Tonight has done for the world. Only fitting, then, that the next logical step in this carnival of madness is…for the art they’ve collected to go on tour. I don’t know if it’s just the three pieces shown here. I don’t know if some of...

"[Bob] Ross’s hair, a holdover from the free-love era, wasn’t naturally curly—he had it permed every few months, a process that he called having his 'springs tightened.'"

"As a nature-loving aesthete, he didn’t seem to have much mind for business matters, which, for better or worse, he left up to the Kowalskis. The documentary treats him as a spiritual healer, somewhere in the family of the Dalai Lama, but it’s more accurate to place him alongside Julia Child, Richard Simmons, and other lovable oddballs who found a niche in mass media and burrowed their way into popular culture.
