The Neglect of a Loved One: Back to MixingReality »

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you.  Whether it's getting to the taxes that you filed an extension for, touching up the roots on your do, or finally getting the house painted after many years of hemming and hawing about costs and colors...time marches on.

Full disclosure:  I am not a baseball fan.  But I love beautifully worked wood sculpture. Vincent Kohler's series, Turnaround has just a hint of [...]

Robotic Seagull Attracts an Actual Flock of Seagulls

Not sure what to make of this video of a robotic seagull which is powered simply by the motion of its wings.  The robot attracted an actual flock of seagulls during a test flight at TEDGlobal 2011, the annual five-day technology conference in Edinburgh, Scotland.  With obvious applications for policing and spying, the video of this device [...]
