Mouth has gone dry… Eleven the game: foosball for the 21st century design crowd Annie Sci-fi geeks photographed in their homes. The Klingons on the sofa are crying out for a caption. Something mundane like “when’s the pizza ready?”, or “have you seen my Bath’lith?”. I think I recognise the AT-AT driver. ABC buttons. Some […]

Hola muchachos

No explanations, just straight back into it: Domenench, having achieved bottom spot in the group, proposes to his girlfriend on live TV. She remains tactfully silent.

Domo arigato, Mr Roboto. The Economist on robots in Japan. Kokoro, a Japanese manufacturer, showed off a robot for training dentists, which it developed with Nippon Dental University. As student dentists drill into its teeth, replete with sensors, the robot yelps “ouch!” when the work is not up to par. But the robot would really […]

Trapped in the closet

Monday, December 17th, 2007

Avast! The return of weekly links. Russell Brand on heroin at Guardian Unlimited …almost as soon as the smoke had hit the back of my throat, that feeling – the kicky leg, the sweating – it just went. It was like turning off a light. Then I could lean back and everything was suddenly all […]
