How To Keep Mold Out of Your Basement

The adverse effects of mold are hard to overlook. From unpleasant appearance to respiratory problems and lethal consequences, mold can make our lives truly miserable. Even though it’s clearly not desirable, many people do everything necessary to help the mold grow. They create a highly favorable environment for it to appear and stay for as long as possible. One of the best places for the mold to grow is the basement. Moisture, high humidity, darkness, and lack of UV light allow mold to thrive. S...

Good Morning

Right before sunrise Soul-o likes to go out for a walk. I switch on the back deck light and he walks to the edge and looks. Then disappears for a bit before coming back for breakfast. Or dessert. Who knows? Lots of loose thoughts and patches strewn around here lately. Winter gets cluttered. And indoor time increases. I'm feeling constrained not heating the studio.  That gap in the roof is actually comforting. Patchwork is one of the sharing segments I've considered.  I've said so muc...

This little speaker-cap hacks your smart speaker to give you back your privacy

Project Alias looks and behaves like a parasitic fungus, in the sense that it latches onto its host, feeding off it and inhibiting its functions for its own gain. It may sound a little extreme, but it does it all for the sake of privacy. Smart speakers now sit in one out of three American homes… and while they’re great in terms of convenience, they’re a privacy nightmare. Smart speakers are always listening in on everything you say or do around your home, and companies create databases and pro...

Smart Speakers Make Inroads Into American Homes

Source: Statista When Amazon announced the Amazon Echo in 2014, many people laughed at the idea of voluntarily letting the world’s largest online retailer put a “listening device” in your home. And yet, the Echo, and Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa with it, became a major success, pioneering the smart speaker market in the United States and internationally. According to a recent statement, Amazon shipped more than 100 million Echo devices since 2014, making it the leader in the highly contested ...

These security cameras are monitored by AI as well as a human surveillance team

Do you remember that viral video of the engineer that designed this glitter bomb for parcel-thieves? It was this over-engineered box that contained a motor, a centrifugal cup with glitter, a fart-bomb, and four smartphones that recorded the incredibly cathartic experience of seeing your parcel thief open the box only to be doused in glitter and sprayed with fart-spray. Thieves would see an unsuspecting box on a porch and pick it up. Once they opened it, the motor would trigger, sending glitter...

This is the Autonomous Travel Suite by Aprilli. It’s, in theory, a self-driving car, but Aprilli doesn’t refer to it as a car. Aprilli calls it a hotel on wheels, and while that sounds like marketing-team-hogwash, it actually isn’t.

A rare occasion where geometry and alcohol pair well together

On a scale of one to ten, ten being the most popular, and one being the least, it’s safe to say that most humans would score geometric solids on the lower side, while scoring fine alcoholic spirits an average of a 9 or a 10. That being said, combining the two isn’t something that really sounds like a winning idea, but Restoration Hardware seems to have pulled it off with their Polyhedron Bar Cart.Designed as a modernist sculptural element that adds flair to any drinking room, the Polyhedron Bar ...
