While some people thought that film was dead, Lomography continues to revive film cameras for a new generation. Lomo cameras create images that are full of color and feeling, a bit like an analog version of Instagram.
When last we saw iCub, he was learning to crawl like a baby and even count numbers like one. Now he has learned to talk like one. Human instructors have taught the bot to talk like a human infant, learning the names of simple shapes and colors so far.
Have you ever wondered what the baby-versions of your favorite Star Wars characters would sound like? Well Sarah Allen of Modern Home Prints sure did. She put together these cute prints that prospective Star Wars fan’s parents can use to decorate their themed nurseries with.
If you never even thought about having a kid, here is at least one good reason to have one. This TRON lightstroller is the work of ILM research engineer Bhautik Joshi. Basically he took a standard baby stroller and tricked it out with EL wire.
These freaky looking Star Wars toys mixed with doll parts aren’t exactly my thing, but I have to give them credit for their creepiness. There’s nothing more disturbing than dolls and when you play Doctor Frankenstein by mixing them with other parts.
We all know babies are precious. We also know that they’re more sensitive to dirt and noise, and get sick or infected more easily than grownup people do. I remember the time when my sister had just delivered her first baby (and my first niece!)
As my sister has told me, it’s sometimes a pain to travel when you’ve got babies because of the strollers. It takes a while to fold the entire thing and set it up, it takes a bit longer to make your baby leave your arms and sit in it (if you’ve got a particularly needy baby, then, well, it will take much longer), and another while to fold the entire thing back up again for storage.
My sister’s youngest daughter got sick over the weekend while she was sleeping over at my place, and let me just say, it was as close to hell heck as I’ve ever been. (I’ve been choosing my words carefully while she was under my care, under strict instructions by my sister.)
Space, the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five year mission, to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new teeth, to boldly go where no spoon has gone before. Nope, that’s not right.
What a lot of parents love to do is dress up their kids. What a lot of kids really hate is getting dressed up by their parents. I can attest to this personally, because I used to throw a fit and fuss over the frilly clothes that my mother would force me to wear.
So what will people come up with next?
I personally don’t really hate or like the name that my parents bestowed upon me. I find “Hazel” to be a pretty boring name to be stuck with (given that the meaning of the name is simply from “the hazel tree.”
There are all sorts of robots everywhere these days. There are robots that perform surgery, spy robots, child-like robots that beg passersby for donations. Now there’s a whole new breed of robots that I think takes the cake: robot babies called Pneuborns.
