If you every get videos or pictures via MMS be sure to open them and view them. If you don’t, later down the line when you back up all of your MMS and try to move them over to your computer as .jpg, .mov, or .3pg you’ll only be able to access their preview files (the little icon showing a small part of the pic or movie) and this will make you sad.
Oh, so it’s one of those Mondays
Guys, this is season ONE of the Simpsons.
Who’s going to be at ACL this weekend?
Tumbl’n Heath turned 4 today!
Harvard Business School researchers found that the poor posture engendered by smartphones and laptops weakens your will.
In the early years of space flight, both Russians and Americans used pencils in space. Unfortunately, pencil lead is made of graphite, a highly conductive material. Snapped graphite leads and particles in zero gravity are hugely problematic, as they will get sucked into the air ventilation or electronic equipment, easily causing shorts or fires in the pure oxygen environment of a capsule.
After the fire in Apollo 1 which killed all the astronauts on board, NASA required a writing instrument that wasn’t a fire hazard. Fisher spent over a million dollars (of his own money) creating a pressurized ball point pen, which NASA bought at $2.95 each. The Russian space program also switched over from pencils shortly after.
40 years later snide morons on the internet still snigger about it, because snide morons on the internet never know what they are talking about.
Space PENS ftw.
Also see sleep and the teenage brain.
This explains a lot of my own behavior.
I just don’t know what is going on there. What is this and where is it from?
Elon Musk shows us SpaceX’s design process and gives us a glimpse into the future of design and manufacturing. From concept to 3D computer model using intuitive hand gestures, and then making it real with 3D printing.
At SpaceX, we love to play with cutting-edge technology and are always looking for ways to turn science fiction into reality. It not only advances our work, but it’s also fun! Shown here is a concept we’re exploring: natural gesture-based interaction with a computer-aided design program, leveraging a Leap Motion Controller. This system is just the beginning, and gives a glimpse into what may come in the worlds of engineering and design.
UC Berkeley scientists have developed a system to capture visual activity in human brains and reconstruct it as digital video clips. Eventually, this process will allow you to record and reconstruct your own dreams on a computer screen.
I hope this is real
This. This is why I’m on Tumblr.
