Interactive Game Board Helps Toddler Learn Colors and Shapes

via Hackaday by Dan Maloney on Sun, 26 Feb 2017 12:00:00 GMT

Most parents would do anything to enrich their kids’ worlds and teach them what they need to know. Hacker parents often take it one step further by modifying the kid’s world to allow them to work past a disability. To wit we have an interactive game board to help a toddler learn her shapes and colors.

The toddler in question is [Becca], and her needs are special because of the progressive nature of the blindness that will result from her Usher Syndrome. [Becca] will need visual acuity testing much earlier than most toddlers, but a standard eye chart is meaningless …read more

It’s orthodoxy v. heterodoxy, and orthodoxy has its hands on the wheel of the truck. The letter is a […]

Weekend links #2

Bet you didn’t know that brewing and serving tea is a manly art. Or that we’re getting closer to the time when we’ll be able to print our own body parts. (Yeah, I know this news is frustrating for some of my friends; seems this great day always remains on the horizon.) DA won’t retry cops for killing a homeless man who was in the process of retreating from them. If the Trump administration cracks down on state-legal cannabis some states will fight back. Living in a blue state isn’t always a bad thing. Washington, Oregon, and Colorado blue is…

This is indeed the way to deal with attacks turn them into a badge of honour

D’Souza thanked the academy for the prizes, saying in a recorded message that “being dissed by you guys, this is absolutely fantastic.

“My audience loves the fact that you hate me.”

“The reason you are giving it to me is because you’re very upset Trump won.

“You’ve never got over it, you probably never will.”

– Dinesh D’Souza, as quoted in the Guardian upon getting four Razzies for the worst film of the year for his Hillary Clinton exposé.

This approach works equally well against both left and right.

Bentley To Offer An Electric SUV

via EPautos – Libertarian Car Talk by eric on Sun, 26 Feb 2017 10:05:27 GMT

Bentley Motors is eyeing a new strategy for both its SUV lineup and its electrification plans: combining them. This actually makes sense – because cost is no object. The superluxury automaker is considering doing a small SUV positioned below the Bentayga that would be electric-only, executives say. “I can assure you that Bentley – on the […]

It was only after his fourth DUI on January 5th of this year, when he was involved in two separate accidents within the same day, including a hit and run, that this “hero” finally managed to get someone’s attention. Reasoner had previously […]

It Won’t Be Like The Jetsons

via EPautos – Libertarian Car Talk by eric on Sun, 26 Feb 2017 09:22:10 GMT

What does it mean when people talk about self-driving cars? We really ought to be talking about programmed cars. And about who does the programming. The “self-driving” car doesn’t decide for itself how fast it goes or what route it takes – at least, it won’t until it becomes an autonomous thinking machine, an artificial […]

STORY: The Levitating Timepiece has more than a month left on its crowdfunding campaign but it’s reached more than 6x its $80k goal. The wooden disk has a digital time display in the center which is simply an LED matrix just below the wood’s surface. We know how that’s done: wooden veneer with a grid of holes behind …read more
