An amazing short film. The VFX are super impressive, but the concept is - chilling...
In this sci-fi short film, we get a dark look at the possible implications of virtual reality, and what happens when the lines between reality and fiction begin to blur.

A kit based around the venerable 6502.
6502 Microprocessor Kit. Wichit Sirichote, kswichit@kmitl.ac.th. Build a single board microcomputer with 6502 CPU. Simple design and cheap, everyone can build it. Back to 1982, when I was a university student, I have learned the Z80 CPU with Multitech MPF-1 Kit. At the same time, ...

Fascinating story about how investigating fogging of X-ray film revealed the nuclear testing programme.
​​Two thousand miles away from the U.S. A-bomb tests in 1945, something weird was happening to Kodak's film.​

Very impressive piece of work!
Enigma machines are fascinating devices, especially for young Makers looking to explore the world of electronics. Awhile back we featured a similar project from Italy, and we're once again amazed by the work of 14-year-old Andy Eggebraaten, who built a retro-modern gadget of his own.

Current Neural Networks actually function quite differently to biological neurons. But this new research creates a biologically inspired neuron that physically mimics neuronal behaviour using phase-change material.

Reproducibility is at the foundation of the scientific method, yet the pressure to publish or perish means there is more incentive to produce new results or methods than reproduce existing results.

There are now a number of journals with open publication principles, but this needs to extend to methods and processes. The Insight Journal is an excellent example, whereby the source code, data and everything required to produce the results in that paper are published alongside the writeup. Anyone can not only reproduce the same results, they can also run it on a broader data set, inspect and even improve the code, and contribute far more valuable feedback than the existing "black box" scenario.
A few years ago, I became aware of serious problem in science: the irreproducibility crisis. A group of researchers at Amgen, an American…

Really interesting project, visualising sound spatially.
Once upon a time I was reading a Popular Mechanics article, the title of which eludes me. Something about playing different music for different parts of a dance floor. They were describing a way to…

What a blast from the past! This is the first electronics kit I used to start learning when I was about 7 years old. I spent hours experimenting and learning with these kits, and was truly inspired. I should really thank Dick Smith for kick-starting my tech education.
Regular readers will no doubt already know my passion for Dick Smith’s Fun Way into Electronics series, as it was one of the big reasons for my interest and continuing self-education in elect…

Impressive looking flexible circuits.
Wearable electronics are growing in popularity every year, and they can do everything from monitoring your internals, keeping track of your overall health and even purify the air you’re breathing. All of this can be done wirelessly, and now thanks to a team of researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, we may soon have the …
