Last year, I had the privilege of visiting the North Hollywood shop of custom car builder George Barris. Barris created the ‘60’s Batmobile, the Munsters coach, the jalopy from the Beverly Hillbillies, and many other legendary vehicles. He also was very proud of the black Lincoln Continental he created for The Car. For many years, The Car was a long forgotten horror film from the ‘70’s that was roasted by the critics, and it quickly came and went in the theaters. But many fans like myself grew up enjoying it on television, and Guillermo Del Toro is known to drive a replica of the Lincoln from the film. When Del Toro produced last year’s Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episode, he even had The Car chasing down Millhouse in the opening couch gag (driven by Maggie, natch).

EMPATHY AND THE ROBOT: A NEUROANTHROPOLOGICAL ANALYSIS - Glaskin - 2012 - Annals of Anthropological Practice Roboticists developing socially interactive robots seek to design them in such a way that humans will readily anthropomorphize them. For this anthropomorphizing to occur, robots need to display emotion-like responses to elicit empathy from the person, so as to enable social interaction. This article focuses on roboticists’ efforts to create emotion-like responses in humanoid robots. In particular, I investigate the extent to which the cultural dimensions of emotion and empathy are factored into these endeavors. Recent research suggests that mirror neurons or other brain structures may have a role to play in empathy and imitation. Notwithstanding this, the effect of sociocultural experience in shaping appropriate empathic responses and expectations is also crucial.

Building connections — between toys … Design Welcome to 4D printing: A Q&A with Skylar Tibbits at TED2013 We’ve all heard of 3D printing. But what the heck is 4D printing?

The talk has gotten a lot of attention. Techland - Tech and Gaming News and Reviews - Regulators are wary of facial recognition software Facebook rolled out a new photo-sharing app in the U.S. this week, but it won’t come out in Europe in the near future due to concerns over how it uses facial recognition technology. The app, called Moments, allows users to share photos with each other privately based around specific events and uses facial recognition software to detect which friends are in a given photo. The technology, which is used to offer photo tagging suggestions on Facebook proper, is automatically set to be used on all users in the U.S. However, in Europe, Facebook will be forced to make facial scanning and tagging an opt-in feature, Facebook head of policy Richard Allen told the Wall Street Journal.
