‘Self-Healing’ Electronic Skin Can Patch Itself Up After A Cut, Just Like Humans #WearableWednesday
From prosthetics to robotics, researchers are looking to mimic human skin. At least partially. The method for this electric skin is layering the correct materials.
Via Design Taxi:
Researchers at Stanford University have come up with synthetic electronic skin that can “recognize” itself and self-heal when injured, just like how our real skin works. This invention could be a key step in developing robot skin that mimics the human organ.
The team successfully demonstrated a multi-layer, thin po
How to order wine like a pro, according to the world’s best sommelier
Ordering wine at a restaurant can either be the evening’s most exciting moment, or the most daunting. Avoid the latter with this guide on how to pick your next favourite bottle.
The journey usually begins with someone handing you a list of foreign words, various years, and prices with more digits than a postal code. While the S$60 Australian chardonnay will definitely not resemble the S$600 white Burgundy, deciding between two similarly-priced wines might be anxiety-inducing.
This is when you tu

Senators slam Meta for releasing LLaMA after token tests
US senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) have asked Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg to address AI safety concerns after its large language system LLaMA was leaked online for anyone to download and use.
In February, the social media giant launched LLaMA, a collection of models capable of generating text. The most powerful of Meta’s models boasted 65 billion parameters, and allegedly outperformed GPT-3, and was on a par with DeepMind’s Chinchilla and Google’s PaLM models, despite bei
‘Colossal Cave’ from ‘King’s Quest’ Creators Roberta and Ken Williams is Heading to Mobile this Summer – TouchArcade
It doesn’t get much more legendary than the names Ken and Roberta Williams when talking about the point-and-click adventure game genre.

WTL 2023 Summer – Week 7 Recap/Week 8 Preview
After a relatively uneventful Week 7 that saw the rankings stay completely unchanged, we’re in store for a treat in Week 8. While I didn’t go back and check the schedule for every season, this is easily one of the most entertaining regular season weeks in WTL history.
To start, we have a massive clash between two championship contenders in DKZ and ONSYDE, with Maru vs Oliveira being the opening bout. Then, PSISTORM will fight for their playoff lives vs TL, with new signee Spirit finally
Plastic Welding Revisited
Last time we talked about a video that purported to do plastic welding, we mentioned that the process wasn’t really plastic welding as we understood it. Judging by the comments, many people agreed, but it was still an interesting technique. Now [Inventor 101] has a video about plastic repair that also talks about welding, although — again, we aren’t sure all of the techniques qualify.
That’s not to say there aren’t some clever ideas, though. There are several variations on a theme, but the basi

How to get Insatiable Fury in Diablo 4
Behind the Necromancer, the Druid is probably my second favorite class in Diablo 4. That’s because you can be versatile, and deadly, and you can shapeshift into certain animals. The options are limitless. Investing in high-tier gear can make everything about this class almost Godlike. Unique gear in Diablo 4 is considered high-tier, that can only be earned a few ways. While they can make you look cool, they’re good for other things as well. Most, if not all have effects that can make your build

Trompe L’oeil With a Touch of BDSM
I have wanted to see Sarah Palmer’s work ever since I discovered it in 2019, with her debut solo show, Outs & Ins, at Mrs. (November 16, 2019–January 18, 2020), which I didn’t get to. I made it to her second exhibition, The Delirious Sun at Mrs. (March 11–May 6, 2023), but not until the last week of the show. This prompted me to do something I rarely do: I got in touch with Palmer — whom I did not know — and arranged a studio visit at her gallery.
Once I saw the work, I realized that wh
