A new kind of three-dimensional display developed at HP Labs plays hologram-like videos without the need for any moving parts or glasses. Videos displayed on the HP system hover above the screen, and viewers can walk around them and experience an image or video from as many 200 different viewpoints—like walking around a real object.
The screen is made by…Continue

If you’re working with small parts, even the smallest table saw available at Home Depot or Lowes is generally overkill. For cutting up small pieces of wood, metal, and copper-clad board, a micro table saw is a great investment. They’re actually pretty inexpensive, but why just buy one when you…Continue

The promotional event for the movie coincided with Saturday night’s Earth Hour, which was meant to encourage people to take one hour and to conserve electricity, suggesting that the folks behind it, while good at promoting things, might not be so great at getting the point of Earth Hour. Either that, or they’ve badly misunderstood the words “electricity” and…Continue

HERB prefers the cream over the cookie, even though he’s a robot. Watch HERB work his magic on some Oreos in the latest Oreo Separator video. The team at Carnegie Mellon had HERB try a few different methods before they found the right way to do it.
At one point he can be seen stabbing the cookies with a kitchen knife. Finally they settled…Continue

With CircuitLab you can build and test circuits right in your browser! And now, you can use CircuitLab on offline mode, but you need first install it via Google’s Chrome Web Store on this link.
It’s better to be safe than be sorry when it comes to choosing a password. The problem isn’t whether you can come up with a challenging enough password, though. Rather, it’s whether or not you’ll be able to remember it, given you probably already have a number of other accounts and passwords to…Continue

If there’s one problem with the RepRap, it’s the cost of filament. Sure, there’s also the computationally difficult problem of slicing 3D models, but a 5 to 10 times markup on turning plastic pellets into filament is the biggest problem. It’s even a bigger problem than the problems of compatibility and interchangeable parts that comes with everyone forking a…Continue

A Million Times is an installation based Humans Since 1982. The installation is made of 288 two-handed analogue clocks powered by 576 electrical engines to drive the minute and hour hands independently from each other. The individual clocks create one giant display similar to that of a digital display.…Continue

David Neevel doesn’t like the creme in the middle of Oreos, so he built a machine to remove it. Even though his stance on Oreo creme is horribly, tragically, and completely misguided you have to respect a guy who takes action to get what he wants, or to eliminate what he doesn’t want as the case may be. Neevel is a physicist from Portland who is the…Continue
