Une nuit dans une hutte de hobbit | Isabelle Audet | Cantons de l'Est Quiconque est inattentif peut passer devant la hutte sans la voir. Du sentier, on ne voit qu'une colline couverte de paillis. Seule une cheminée trahit la vie qui se cache dessous. La porte et les fenêtres circulaires du Troglo sortent de terre de l'autre côté, face à la forêt. La ressemblance est frappante: le plus récent gîte du domaine touristique Entre cimes et racines semble tout droit sorti d'un livre de Tolkien.
The Tech Archive: Buxton's Vintage Gadget Collection For every good design there’s at least a dozen of concepts that didn’t catch on. Nothing illustrates that better than a great online vintage gadget collection, published yesterday by Microsoft Research team. The collection is a brainchild of Bill Buxton, one of the principal Microsoft researchers, a guy who’s been through 30 years of continuous tech design. Awarded with three honorary doctorates and several professional awards, Bill also likes to gather things – the vintage, geeky kind of things, to be precise. Over the years, he has gathered an impressive collection of prototypes, probably the best I have seen online. Every exhibit has some nice, high-res photos, a description and sometimes even some PDF downloads of original leaflets or brochures, for added flavor.

Not A Joke: Brainwave-Powered Cat Ears Put Your Emotions On Display | Co.Design You know a sci-fi concept like "brain/computer interface" is gaining critical mass when it starts to be incorporated into incredibly silly products. I remember playing with a brain-sensor headset from Emotiv at CES a few years ago, and thinking: "Wow, this could really help amputees and veterans use their computers!" Well, now a Japanese company called Neurowear is using the technology to cater to batshit-crazy cosplayers. See for yourself: The lifelike movement is undeniably powerful as a "communication tool." The product, called Necomimi, is billed as "a new communication tool that augments [the] human's body and ability."

It's fitting that a place called Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, would yield the discovery of a scary-looking creature. But it's not a ghost - it's a dinosaur. This dog-sized, ferocious-looking critter is called Daemonosaurus chauliodus, which means something along the lines of “buck-toothed evil lizard,” says Hans-Dieter Sues, lead author of the published research describing this dinosaur, and curator of vertebrate paleontology at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. The illustration above compares the head and neck with a quarter. New dinosaur species is a missing link

Computers mimic human reasoning by building on simple rules and statistical averages. Test your strategy against the computer in this rock-paper-scissors game illustrating basic artificial intelligence. Choose from two different modes: novice, where the computer learns to play from scratch, and veteran, where the computer pits over 200,000 rounds of previous experience against you. Note: A truly random game of rock-paper-scissors would result in a statistical tie with each player winning, tying and losing one-third of the time.
