Vintage De Rosa steel frame - with the just the right wear and tear - updated with all new modern components to become your everyday porter/commuter/bar crawler. More pics & deets here:

dunno anything about vintage racing bikes, De Rosa or otherwise. I like brand new, modern hardware.

Incredible results from a highly experimental process. This exactly the kind of "Eff it. What if we...?" approach that will yield BIG results. "The surprise, however, was how much the nanotubes boosted the performance. Rather than the expected 30 percent increase in energy storage, they saw a boost of *200 percent*..."

I still can't believe T-Mobile hired Steve Buscemi as its CEO..
 
I like the new $40 plan but you can get the same deal with MetroPCS (same company, same network) and taxes are already included with that price. If you have a single line with T-Mobile, you should really look at the Metro plans.

Exploring the world with +Google Glass

Just recently, I met this gentleman in the wilds beyond the desert. He was so curious and interested in Glass. Absolutely transfixed, he asked me everything about it, then tried it on and played and played and played!  He loved it!  

First I had him go through the same demo I give everyone.  I have them say, "Okay Glass, Take a picture" — it understands pretty much every accent around the world as far as I can tell. This always makes people freak out with excitement when they see the photo they just took floating as a hologram in front of their eyes.  

Then he started using it more and more, going through all my emails, watching videos, seeing my text messages, asking Google questions, checking weather... I mean it just went on and on and on... and then he started showing all his friends and telling them about it — he was so excited.  Naturally, he was happy for me to take his photo while he was playing!

We ended up talking about a bunch of different things.  I even bought an old used knife from him, and he showed me how to stick the curved end of it into a camel's hump to get water in an emergency.  There's another part of the knife you use to seal up the little puncture wound.  Then we talked about mediation, the sealing of the four cardinal spiritual doors in the night before entering the tent, different cultures around the world, and well, about a dozen other things.  Anyway, it was great... 


(btw after posting this, haha - I see that G+ automatically tagged it with Selfie!)

Nice write up on Solar Impulse 2. Hoping for a lot of trickle down effect once the team publishes the specs!

Exploded view of Audi's climate controls. Brilliant industrial design (inspiration for software UIs too aka "task conflation"). All (scroll down)

Amazing, aren't they! I like this cutaway of the dashboard display, too: http://cdn.slashgear.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/61P8130-audi-tt-virtual-cockpit-600x399.jpg

A nice build, well engineered, albeit a mid-drive. Skip down to version three ("V3, May 2012") to see current pics. And, yeah, parasitic loss of ~20% is expected vs. in-wheel motor.
