Outfit: Your name rhymes with pain

I'm usually not a huge fan of the faux leather pants + faux leather jacket combo as it tends to look like motorcycle gear. I probably chose it because I really, really want summer. NOW :D When I went through my memories on Facebook I realized that two years ago it was already 20° C at this time of the year and we were having BBQs. Same goes for the sunglasses - I want to believe. What's special about it is that it's 3D printed and people always go crazy about it when I tell them. I also got another necklace and two rings and people simply can't stop touching them and asking questions about them :D As I'm a computer scientist and I'll probably be doing a 3D print project this semester myself I'm totally into this new kind...

Eclipse Glasses Protect Eyes Better Than Sunglasses

One event that cannot be viewed directly is a solar eclipse. Fortunately, there are eclipse glasses people can wear to safely view this type of astronomical event. The Important Features While people might think they can wear any type of sunglasses to view a solar eclipse, the truth is that sunglasses are not made with the same high quality filtering materials as the eclipse glasses. The material used for glasses designed especially for viewing an eclipse, will block out more than 90 percent of the sun’s harmful rays. Not only do they provide the best defense against the harmful rays of the sun, they also provide complete coverage. They best way to view an eclipse is through glasses that do not allow any light to enter around the edges of the frame.

3D printed 'Age Suit' lets young people feel what it's like to be old

Jan 11, 2018 | By BenedictGet Models Now, a modern design studio based in Poznan, Poland, has designed a 3D printed “Age Suit” that lets wearers experience what it feels like to be elderly. The suit, made from PLA and other materials, restricts movement to replicate the feeling of age.Walking, bending over, crouching down, sitting on a chair, getting up, climbing the stairs, reaching objects from the shelf: these are all simple tasks that most of us would do without a second thought. But for...

‘Adversarial glasses’ can fool even state-of-the-art facial-recognition tech

You may have heard about so-called “adversarial” objects that are capable of baffling facial recognition systems, either making them fail to recognize an object completely or prompting them to classify it incorrectly — for example, thinking that a rifle is actually a 3D-printed toy turtle. Well, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have just found a practical, scaleable, and somewhat scary application — anti-facial-recognition...
