When you combine Google Fiber, a robot and a boy almost 3000 kilometres away from a baseball game, you already know it’s going to be a good story. But this is better than just good. Google Fiber helped a boy with a rare blood disorder throw out the first pitch at a baseball game that was 2900km away.
Even non-Star Trek fans have dreamed about teleporting away to space by just saying “Beam Me Up, Scotty”. And though it’s unlikely to ever happen in our lifetimes (prove me wrong smart people!), the special effects maestro Shanks FX has cooked up a slick way to recreate the Star Trek teleportation effect with Christmas lights.
Here’s an under-reported feature of iOS 7: you can finally zoom in while video recording now. It seems like it could get a little choppy, as you have to pinch to zoom while already recording video but from the looks of the video above shot by 9to5Mac, the results are pretty seamless.
A lot has happened since 2007. Just look at how much the iPhone home screen has changed. Or how little it has? Back in the days of the first iPhone (it wasn’t even called iOS yet), we couldn’t get third party apps or even move apps around. Now, we have a bigger screen and all these funktastic icons.
If you go deep inside the desert or climb a mountain or find yourself in the South Pole or a remote farm or any place that can be considered “the middle of nowhere”, guess what? You have no internet. Well, Wired is reporting that Google wants to change all that by sending high-altitude balloons into the stratosphere to give the world Wi-Fi. Whoa.
Do you remember the good ol’ days when YouTube didn’t have any ads yet? Or the slightly worse but still pretty good days when there weren’t any annoying pop up ads that stayed on top of your video? Or the definitely worse but still pretty cool days when you could skip every commercial after five second days? What ever happened to that. Now it’s ads on ads on ads.
If you’re a human, you’ve probably always been fascinated with liquid nitrogen. The freezing temperature. The sweet smoking effect. Hell, even the container that held liquid nitrogen was cool. And if you combine liquid nitrogen with slow motion, things get even better. Watch flowers and fruit get dipped into liquid nitrogen and then smashed into smithereens in slow motion.
Here’s a silly little invention that is wonderful because it’ll either make you more drunk or more human, preferably both. It’s a beer glass. Huh? Yeah, the base of this beer glass is shaved down so that it needs to be rested on top of your cell phone to stand up straight. If you’re too busy using your phone? The beer will spill over. If you want to be a human and talk to people? You can sit your beer down perfectly fine.
