Longboard Of The Future!

Now even the clumsiest can take to the streets on a skateboard, after laboratory wizards created a longboard powered by voice control and hand movement. Taking a motorized longboard, the technology team at Chaotic Moon Labs fitted it with a Microsoft Xbox 360 Kinect device, a Samsung Windows 8 tablet with voice control, a phidget interface module, and sturdy all terrain tires for their ‘Board of Awesomeness’. Branded ‘Project Sk8′ the team sent one of their crew out to road test the impressive electronic board which, using Kinect technology, is controlled by user’s movement.” w/ photos + video

How To Make Homemade Ketchup

“Heinz has totally spoiled me. When Erin asked if I’d be interested in starting up this new ‘Sauced’ column, I started racking my brain about what condiment to tackle first. I could think of nothing more fitting, more ubiquitous, than ketchup. You hardly ever stop to think about what goes into making ketchup… So I started this recipe from the ground up, reading ingredient labels on common ketchups, tasting them, and researching the process of making it. The fruits of this labor was something simple to make and tasted great.” w/ photos

Top 15 Big Ways The Internet Is Changing Our Brain

“Noted science-fiction writer Isaac Asimov predicted that one day, we’d ‘have computer outlets in every home, each of them hooked up to enormous libraries where anyone can ask any question and be given answers, be given reference materials, be something you’re interested in knowing, from an early age, however silly it might seem to someone else,’ and with this appliance, be able to truly enjoy learning instead of being forced to learn mundane facts and figures. His insight has proven to be amazingly accurate, as we now live in a world with the Internet, where nearly the entire wealth of human knowledge can live at our fingertips or even in our pockets. Such an amazing feat, of course, doesn’t happen without impacting our lives, and scientists have begun to note that the Internet has not only served to fulfill our brains’ curiosities, but also rewired them. So what exactly is the Internet doing to our brains? Read on to find out.” w/ photos
