“Mini” is sitting comfortably in the list of top gadgets buzzwords (for now) and while it’s there, vendors are going to take the opportunity to brand the slightly smaller versions of their products with this moniker. Next off the rank is ASUS with its Padfone Mini, a press render of which has apparently leaked via Twitter.
December, where did you come from? I know you’re just after November, but damn, you got here quicker than expected. I suppose the only thing left to do is enjoy all the Christmas shenanigans you bring with you… like, say, this rendition of “Make It Snow”, except replace “snow” with “so” and have it sung by characters from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
What’s blue and gold and has six sides? If you said a “blue and gold hexagon”, congratulations, you’re a genius! But you’d be an even bigger genius if you’d said “the Hexagon”, the nickname for a massive, yet orderly-shaped jetstream that hovers over Saturn’s north pole. While it was discovered back in the early 80s, it’s only recently that NASA has been able to snap high-res photos of it with colour filters.
So, the University of Adelaide takes the crown for the most awesomely-named facility ever: the Nerve-Gut Research Laboratory. Rather than sit in said lab, admiring the well-chosen moniker, researchers have discovered that there’s more to hunger than your stomach being empty or full — apparently, the time of day plays an important role too.
Music parodies make for easy listening — well, the good ones — and it certainly helps if you’re melding the melodic awesomeness of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody with the everlasting sci-fi cool of Star Wars. Fortunately for us, this exact combination can be witnessed in the clip above and it is, most definitely, a glorious occurrence.
2014 is fast approaching and with it, a bunch of new television shows. First off the rank and one of the more promising prospects is Helix, a sci-fi thriller that sees its cast of CDC scientists sent to a remote research base in the Arctic. Bad stuff, of course, happens, some of which you can get a taste of in the freshly released trailer above.
The universe — the gift that keeps on giving… and one that will continue to provide opals of awesome for as long as we need it to. One of the latest discoveries from the depths of forever is an extrasolar planetary system that shares a surprising number of characteristics with our own, which apparently, is an unusual occurrence.
Even though you know they’re made from real photographs, the sped-up nature of timelapses gives them a slightly fake, surreal quality. Watching a never-ending stream of people condensed into a smudge of colours is disconcerting; it almost trivialises the day-to-day activities of the average person. This slick timelapse of London by photographer Paul Richardson is a terrific example.
Everyone loves a good impersonation. And by good, I mean perfect. Sure, your mates might share a laugh when you do your crappy copy of Sean Connery, but you know you’ve hit the big time when you’re constantly surrounded at parties with people asking you to record voice messages and what now. Which is something I imagine happens to Charlie Hopkinson a lot, going by his killer impersonations in this video.
It’s almost like the forces controlling fate know it’s the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. First, the BBC uncovered a bunch of lost episodes in Nigeria, of all places. Now, all seven instalments in “Marco Polo”, a Doctor Who serial featuring William Hartnell as the First Doctor, have reportedly turned up.
