OMG! Two of my dreams meet: A Walking Dead meets Microsoft Surface commercial!

I am watching this on repeat. I am sure they made it just for me! <3

Swiss Postal Service – treating your mail with care since… oops!


Ouch, that one hurt. Like a miracle, the contents survived though.

Swiss Researches make Robots evolve to learn cooperation, hunting. (CNET). So beware of hunters on your next trip here!

If robots are allowed to evolve through natural selection, they will develop adaptive abilities to hunt prey, cooperate, and even help one another, according to Swiss researchers.


Bad at video games? Brain structure may be at fault (via arstechnica)

Prior cognitive, psychological, and neurological studies have shown that
expert video game players are capable of outperforming novices in measures of
attention and perception. They also have demonstrated that, when novices train
on video games for 20-plus hours, they experienced no measurable increase in
cognitive ability. These two pieces of information would seem to point to an
innate difference between expert and novices gamers, instead of suggesting that
gaming is a skill that can be learned.

New neurological research,
published in—and made freely available by—the journal Cerebral Cortex has found a correlation
between the size of a trio of structures in the human brain and their owner’s
ability to learn and play video games. Animal studies had focused the authors’
attention on three distinct structures deep within the brain: the caudate
nucleus and the putamen in the dorsal striatum, and the nucleus accumbens in the
ventral striatum. It was known that the striatum was used in habit forming and
skill acquisition, so a role in video games skills makes sense.

I know who I am going to blame bad dps or hps on next time! My underdeveloped brain, that’s who!

The iBodyScanner…


Der iNacktscanner (the iBodyScanner)

A brilliant cartoon by http://www.clap-club.de/ that I found on Andrea’s blog (http://diehaarigenbiester.de/2010/01/der-nacktscanner/)

“Gamer” the movie didn’t get great reviews. I just saw it and was very surprised.


This is the darkest vision of future MMOs including a sick version of Second Life. Only that not just the players but also the Avatars are real people. It does take a strong stomach to see it, however.

And have a look at the truck that is shown. Now that’s a car!
