Work. It makes you want to drink. But most companies don’t allow mid-afternoon drinkathons, so the next best thing is leaving work early for one. The Happy Hour Virus is your little slice of sanity, corporate workers. This website has been designed to change your computer screen to “broken” mode in kernel panic, broken monitor […]
This poor computer just doesn’t have a filter when it comes to telling jokes. Programmed to tell sexist jokes by scientists at University of Edinburgh, it hasn’t yet been programmed to be “socially aware”, so some of the jokes come out better than other. The scientists taught the computer to combine two unlikely words and […]
Ever since the computer began to conquer our private space, there’s very few areas which have remained untouched. Even the arts got fascinated by these little machines and the possibilities they offer, experimenting with binary codes, algorithms and randomly generated patterns. These abstract pieces by Siebren Versteeg seem different, though, because his ever-evolving algorithm considers […]
Guess what? Society has finally advanced beyond the need to physically move a mouse in order to operate a computer. This amazing new invention by the Not Impossible Foundation allows those limited by paralyses or any other neuromuscular disorder to type, email, and surf the web. How is this possible? It’s just as simple as […]

Between not understanding the machine, sorting though social media, software crashes, updates, and the rest, computers seem to add a significant […]
This could very well become the next generation of computer input devices, in an age beyond keyboards and mice. Essentially the Leap is a sophisticated sensor that allows the user to control a computer in three dimensions using natural natural hand and finger movements.
A powerful credit-card-sized computer for $35, developed by eggheads at Cambridge University specifically to remove the don’t-mess-with-my-expensive-machine preciousness of computers, encourage kids to tinker, and thus improve the calibre of their computer science applicants. As you would expect, kids are doing mind-bending projects with them, like brain-controlling their Lego robots.
