Russian graphic designer iunewind cooked up this cool concept for a robot. Modeled after a mosquito, iunewind calls it Night Watch. His work is so detailed, I can almost believe that it’s a shot of an actual invention.
The Indian government is currently working with private companies as well as several “elite technology institutions” to develop a 500 rupee ($10 USD) laptop. In contrast, the OLPC laptop’s screen alone costs $28.50 USD. The Times Online says that the project is already three years in the making, and that the Indian government expects to have a prototype of the laptop within months.
Tens of thousands of years from now when robots and ninjas rule the earth, they will find all sorts of man-made stuff which will surely baffle them, such as toilets. And poo. Maybe archeologist ninjas and robo-historians will be scratching their heads when they find this strange collection of shaped stones in Ekaterinburg, Russia.
Upon closer inspection, the robo-historians will snap with their metallic fingers, and the archaelogist ninjas will say, “A-ha!”
It’s 10:54 pm, Saturday, January 31 here in the Philippines as I’m writing this. I noted the time because, right now, Google is going insane. How?

It’s pretty normal these days to keep a blog or Twitter account. Some people even set up social networking accounts for their infant children, or even their pets. One intrepid person has pushed the envelope, however, into a realm heretofore unimagined: she’s got a bed with its own not-inconsiderable fanbase on Facebook.
The custom hamburger (or, cheeseburger, as it maybe should be) bed resides at Kayla Kromer’s house in Texas, and looks pretty comfy, but should it have a Facebook page of its own?
It’s been a while since I’ve seen speakers that looked quite this strange. Designed to be your “little dead desktop buddy”, they look like something that your neighborhood dominatrix might have sitting next to her computer.
The oddly-named Dutch Dead Bbudd speaker system looks like some sort of naugahyde-wrapped dude with his eyes X’d out.
