It's a bit late, but this song is funny.
 
Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Just saw +EKLIPSE +Delain and +KAMELOT and it was absolutely amazing! If you have a chance, go see them.

Congratulations Simone of +Epica on your first child.  May your pregnancy go well.  I'm sure I can speak for all Epica fans, when I say that we wish you the best, and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Congratulations +Epica on 10 years of great music.  The Retrospect concert was amazing.  I only wish I could have been there in person.  I look forward to seeing you guys on tour again.

This is pretty fascinating.
 
<inflatable actuation>

When a new technology comes along and is able to improve a basic technical ratio - like power density of batteries or the # of transistors per integrated circuit - by 5 or 10 x... it typically allows entirely new classes of technologies to be created. In this Solve for X talk, Saul Griffith talks about such an advance. He's working on soft actuators, ones driven by air, that could create robotic actuators with significantly higher torque to weight ratios.

Problem: Actuators in robots are heavy, clunky and limit mobility, dexterity and speed. 

Solution: Create materials and actuators that are soft - that act more like muscles and tissues found in nature and exert tremendous forces while being flexible and low weight.

Breakthrough technology that makes this possible: Saul and other researchers utilize differential air pressure within flexible materials in order to create large inflatable robots and actuators unlike anything you've seen before.

One of the songs off of Delain's new album.  I'm curious to hear what the rest of it sounds like.

I shared this last year, but the time has come again.  Happy St. Patrick's Day.
 
Have a great St. Patrick's Day!

An absolutely great place to eat. Though you may need to sell a kidney to pay the bill. But if you're in Salt Lake City, and you want a good steak, go here.
