Wow, #Bose are making some noise-masking sleep buds. Been looking for some good alternatives to #Cocoon, and having owned the Bose QC 15 if they work anywhere as good as that but are comfortable to sleep in, I am sold! Very keen to try these with some recent noisy neighbours. @Bose if you see this please let me back this project somehow as it seems it is sold out on Indiegogo ;-) https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/bose-noise-masking-sleepbuds-sleep-health#/

So, #BostonDynamics is still my favourite #robotics company. Just look at what their #Atlas #robot can do now - freaking back flips! Totally bad ass (when it gets it right at least haha) https://youtu.be/fRj34o4hN4I

Scientists in the US have attempted to edit a person’s #DNA inside his own body, permanently altering his #genetic code. It will take at least a month, and as long as three, to know if the edit took place successfully. Very interesting, read more:

Great tutorial, write up, and examples of using #Pix2Pix creatively. In case you don’t know what this is, Pix2Pix is a machine learning system that can perform image t image translation using conditional adversarial networks. A video is worth a thousand words here, so check the videos and have your mind blown. Then go check out the code. https://ml4a.github.io/guides/Pix2Pix/

With just one photo you can get a 3D model of your head including hair. Very impressive research. Now someone point me to the code... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dERjpAaoNjk

Brain implant appears to boost memory in humans. Amazing research. Though a long way off it being mainstream. http://www.iflscience.com/technology/brain-implant-appears-to-boost-memory-in-humans/

New website from Google shows some awesome web based voice experiments that utilize speech recognition and sounds for creative experiences. Worth trying them out! https://experiments.withgoogle.com/voice

Looks like the movie industry finally discovered what a binary tree is in the context of story telling... Still it will be great to see people shooting movies from multiple perspectives and give the user a choice of the path to follow. I have been waiting for this to be adopted for years... I have often wondered if the future of cinemas is something similar using a combination of directional sound and glasses that show unique footage to each viewer. You heard it here first ;-)
