    Most people were born with masks over their skulls that are able to, among other things, visually display emotional states. They’re called faces, but a designer named Eun Kyung Shin has come up with a 21st century, well, let’s call it an enhancement to the standard face: It’s called Hyperface. The experimental Hyperface is a […]

    Kanazawa Ice: Japanese Scientists Invent Melt-Free Ice Cream

    I’ve always had a kind of faith that technology would eventually solve all of society’s problems: Wealth inequality, hunger, war, climate change, disease, etc etc etc. But never in my wildest, most optimistic fantasies did I ever dream that scientists would one day crack the problem of melting ice cream.

    ‘Death Wish’ Remake with Bruce Willis: Trailer (Video)

    The original 1974 film Death Wish depicted New York City as a totally violent, crime-ridden dystopia.

It’s called Mars […]

    Samsung Leader 8: A New Flip Phone Riff Coming to China

    It was only a matter of time before the beginning of a full-fledged flip phone revival – after all, aren’t we all (at least those of us who are old enough to remember) nostalgic for the time before we spent most of our waking hours connected to everyone we know and the world at large? […]

    ‘Eat What You Watch: A Cookbook for Movie Lovers’ by Andrew Rea

    Andrew Rea is the creator of the popular web series Binging with Babish, which generally shows viewers how to create famous dishes from TV and movies.
