The PowerPot by David Toledo. Hello, and thank you for checking out our project! The PowerPot is a a portable electric generator that doubles as a cooking pot. It can be used indoors or outside and works with any fuel source. Unlike solar power, The PowerPot works day or night, rain or shine to bring you the electricity you need to keep charging, anytime, anywhere! We've reached our final stages of prototyping and it is time to bring this wonderful device to the market. With your help, we hope to get Power Pots into the hands of the people who need it most, and onto your own stove or campfire!

Simply put, The PowerPot transforms the heat from cooking into electricity with no moving parts. Paul and I are both materials science engineers and avid campers. Right now, we are launching two models, the PowerPot V and the PowerPot X, which respectively produce 5 and 10 watts of usable electricity. The PowerPot X is a typical kitchen-style pot, with integrated thermoelectric technology that makes it a 10W generator. El mago Gabi Pareras y otra de sus obras de arte. Loop. Mobile Art.


Experiencias MóvilesEl teléfono móvil se ha convertido en un objeto cultural cotidiano, no sólo en su función de soporte de contenidos, sinó también como herramienta y medio para la creación artística. Estas nuevas posibilidades para la experimentación creativa han sido aprovechadas en la última década por múltiples artistas y desarrolladores de programa, materializándose en una gran diversidad de proyectos. A pesar de ello, el empleo de los dispositivos móviles en el ámbito artístico es, aún hoy, una práctica bastante desconocida para el público interesado en el arte contemporáneo.

Why The New Guy Can’t Code. We’ve all lived the nightmare.

Why The New Guy Can’t Code

A new developer shows up at work, and you try to be welcoming, but he1 can’t seem to get up to speed; the questions he asks reveal basic ignorance; and his work, when it finally emerges, is so kludgey that it ultimately must be rewritten from scratch by more competent people. And yet his interviewers—and/or the HR department, if your company has been infested by that bureaucratic parasite—swear that they only hire above-average/A-level/top-1% people.

It’s a big problem, especially now. There’s a boom on. I get harassing emails from recruiters every day. Like many of the hangovers that haunt modern software engineering, this is ultimately mostly Microsoft’s fault.2 Back when they were the evil empire where everyone secretly wanted to work, they were famous for their “brain-teaser” interview questions – Why are manhole covers round? It’s nice to see that Google have almost sort of realized that their recruiting algorithm is problematic.
