Fallout 4: See you on the other side.

I’m probably not going to be any use to the world until I’m finished playing this game. Watch this stream to monitor my progress / descent into slovenly disorder. Watch live video from actuallyrizzn on...

Are Googler’s Crazy, Or Am I?

According to a cartoonist (http://bit.ly/OIEKva), Google employees are in the top three groups of contributors to the Obama campaign, when ranked by employer. You’d think that despite their politics, as a group, Google would rather have a President that...

Storage is Sexy: Call and Response

Art: “Can we please stop with the "storage is sexy" stuff? Because it’s not.  Art: “You know what storage is?  It’s the mother-in-law of technology. It’s a necessary evil, and if you don’t learn to deal with it properly, your life...

Dancing “Sexy” Robots.

They’ve been working on dancing robots in Japan (they being a company called Kawada). This is version one, from what I can (badly) translate from Japanese: Here’s the current version....

More on Facebook’s New “Likes”

I briefly mentioned in my previous post here (and the one from yesterday on SiliconANGLE) that the new “like” functionality from Facebook isn’t going to be useful for small to mid-sized content producers. I saw my first “like” implementation in the wild just...

SxSW Day Two Update: Too Tired to Actually Write Something Edition

[Note: I know these are late.  I’ve shooting tons of footage, and haven’t had enough time to upload. Hopefully, my post schedule will increase in frequency Monday and Tuesday. –mrh] I’ve got two great stories (at least) to share with you. Nova Spivack’s...

Predictions 2010: A Work in Progress.

Putting together a monster predictions post is always daunting.  I remember the first time I had to do one, Pete started bugging me all the way back in November for it, and I didn’t get it done until the second week of December. That week has come and gone this...

This is how the trouble starts [Carnivorous Robots]

I read a story a long time ago (I forget the author or even the title) that talked about a world that evolved on one of the moons of Jupiter – it was an entire ecosystem that mirrored our own consisting entirely of robots.  I’ll refrain from synopsizing the...

Robot that Makes Coffee

I’ve always wanted a robot that makes coffee.  As a short film, this is fascinating. Something tells me that this requires a bit of supervision to make sure the task is completed properly,...

Robots Now Capable of Improvisational Jazz

At some point, I’m going to do a roundup post of all the various forms of artistic robots there are, or at least the ones that I’ve come across in my travels.  I’ve personally witnessed several AI’s capable of poetry.  I’ve seen more than a few robots...

In Robot Takeover News… [Ender Wiggen]

Sean Kennedy’s NewsReal today points to a TED Talk from P.W. Singer that explores our Ender’s Game-esque future. The idea that video games are training our children to be soldiers is a bit over the top, at least in my view. The way the military engineers a UAV is...

British Robots Make Scientific Discoveries! [SkyNet]

According to a report by Steven Hodson over at Inquisitr, “Adam the Robot” has carried out and successfully completed “scientific research automatically without human intervention.” It’s actually just an interesting spin on something that’s likely been happening for...

SmarterChild: A Eulogy and Obituary

This is actually fairly old news, as it turns out, but SmarterChild, one of the most widely known and used Chatterbox AI’s has passed on. Perhaps a better analogy would be to say that he’s on life support. Whenever you query the bot, you get the same uniform answer:...

Giant Firebreathing Robots! [VICTORY IS MINE!]

 I’m more or less convinced my youngest son (seen above) is the real world incarnation of Stewie, from Family Guy.  He’s surprisingly smart, and has an expression most of the time that belies some sort of secret attempt to take over the world. Which is why I...
