Thoughts and articles that relate to ever growing world of technology

Breast ImplantsWith the recent advent of the new Video iPod, technology firms are finding more and more places to stick mp3 players. BT Futurology believes they have found the perfect spot: breast implants. With their innovative new design, one implant could hold your entire music collection and the other could house the mp3 player. I’ll leave the controls up to your imagination. The same technology could also be used to monitor heart palpitations, blood pressure, diabetes, and breast cancer.

There is a new fad spreading around the net right now called camera tossing. It consists of throwing a digital camera into the air with the aperture open. Usually, it’s done with a CVS disposable camera, but some people are even using their Canon 10Ds! Here a couple of examples from clickykbd:

The DoubleSpace Kitchenette is a dual-burner electric stove that doubles as an easy chair. Created for those in university dorms or studio apartments, it easily flips between your TV throne and ramen maker.

This is either one of the best or one of the most dangerous dorm room ideas that I have ever seen. Maybe both. (via Engadget)

Archimedes Death Ray SketchChildren under the ages of 16 must have adult supervision.

On episode 16 of MythBusters, the hosts of the show, Jamie and Adam, were unable to recreate the Archimedes Death Ray and thus considered the myth “busted.” A class of MIT students was not thwarted by their feeble attempts and realized that it could have been a real possibility by doing a little math.

Like many crazy deprived MIT students, they took up the challenge and created a prototype Archimedes Death Ray.

By using an array of mirrors, they were able to focus enough sunlight on a targeted faux ship to set it on fire.

The course instructor, David Wallace, even put together a pretty cool FAQ about the feasibility of such a weapon.

For about two weeks now, I have been watching this incredible National Geographic webcam set up at a remote watering hole in southern Africa. By tuning in at any time, you might end up seeing elephants, zebras, giraffes, monkeys, and all kinds of other creatures. Currently, the hot time to watch is 10am – 12am EST.


Out of all the mess that came from Katrina, this has to be the craziest.

It may be the oddest tale to emerge from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Armed dolphins, trained by the US military to shoot terrorists and pinpoint spies underwater, may be missing in the Gulf of Mexico.

Experts who have studied the US navy’s cetacean training exercises claim the 36 mammals could be carrying ‘toxic dart’ guns. Divers and surfers risk attack, they claim, from a species considered to be among the planet’s smartest. The US navy admits it has been training dolphins for military purposes, but has refused to confirm that any are missing. […]

Leo Sheridan, 72, a respected accident investigator who has worked for government and industry, said he had received intelligence from sources close to the US government’s marine fisheries service confirming dolphins had escaped.

‘My concern is that they have learnt to shoot at divers in wetsuits who have simulated terrorists in exercises. If divers or windsurfers are mistaken for a spy or suicide bomber and if equipped with special harnesses carrying toxic darts, they could fire,’ he said. ‘The darts are designed to put the target to sleep so they can be interrogated later, but what happens if the victim is not found for hours?’
