CTDL 143: She’s inside my MIND!!!

I probably found this via boing boing (I find a lot of links there, and this looks right up the boing boing alley), but only have the actual article in front of me. Fascinating look at technologies that give others a peek behind the curtain of our mind.

We think of our brains as the ultimate [...]

CTDL 141: free air

It is these sort of things that will become more and more reality as energy demands increase, and as countries like China and India become more “modernized.”

Clark, in his post today about heat pumps and hot water, wondered aloud about other energy-saving techniques:
Why doesn’t my fridge connect to the outside world? In wintertime, there’s plenty [...]

CTDL 003: Build your own Spitfire

Somebody is selling kit-planes that look a lot cooler than ye old Cessna (sorry Cessna). For a bit more than a quarter mil you can have a kit to make your own Spitfire. It’s a 90% scale, uses a V6, flies around 220mph, and will take you 500-1200 hours to complete (depending on [...]
