Glow-in-the-Dark Road Lights Up for Drivers

Posted on Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Rainy night along the 401, who wouldn’t welcome this?

This idea has been bouncing around for the last year and a bit, as well of the concept of highway lanes that charge your electronic car, and graphics on the actual road that update you on driving conditions like slippery roads or slow traffic ahead.

Lets turn this concept into a real life invention! While we’re at it lets create cars that drive themselves


Stephen Colbert visits David Letterman and his future ‘Late Show’ home

Posted on Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

And yes, they took a selfie!

Sporting a fancy pair of glasses, Stephen Colbert arrived on the “Late Show” Tuesday night to sit down with David Letterman and chat about the future — a future that will, of course, see Colbert take over for Letterman next year when the iconic late-night host retires sometime in 2015, as CBS recently announced.

You look right at home,” Letterman said approvingly to the Comedy Central star as he sat down to wild applause.

What followed was a breezy, entertaining conversation, chock full of one-liners and self-deprecation, things that each late-night host excels at. Both Letterman and Colbert — who was obviously himself, and not his satirical “Stephen Colbert” character — seemed to enjoy the chat while simultaneously acknowledging the inherent weirdness of the situation. Case in point: Colbert brought his own Top 10 list, and Letterman seemed genuinely confused that Colbert got the traditional Top 10 intro music and graphics before he read the list out loud.

“Wait a minute, wait a minute, he doesn’t get that yet! He doesn’t have the job yet,” Letterman exclaimed, as the audience cracked up and Colbert exaggeratedly mouthed “thank you” in the direction of Paul Shaffer and the band.

Robin Thicke Passes Adele On All-Time UK Downloads Chart

Posted on Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Robin’s controversial track (Blurred Lines) has sold more than 1.5m copies, beating Adele’s Someone Like You to the top spot! Resistance is futile. Despite all the protests about it glorfying sexual harrassment, despite the bans in student unions, Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines has been named the biggest selling download in UK history by the Official Charts Company.

Blurred Lines has sold 1.54m download copies since its release in May 2013, overtaking Adele‘s Someone Like You, which has sold 1.53m copies. They are the only tracks to have sold more than 1.5m downloads, though 27 have sold more than 1m.

Thicke and Adele are followed in the top five downloads by Maroon 5′s Moves Like Jagger, Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know and Black Eyes Peas’ I Gotta Feeling. Happy, by Pharrell Williams, has already sold around 1.3m downloads, making it the ninth biggest seller on the list.


Introducing The World’s First 3D Printed Ice Cubes!

Posted on Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

These are the coolest things I’ve seen in a while! Think the massive orbs of ice in your craft cocktail are cool? You haven’t seen anything yet. Japanese whiskey company Suntory has created a series of ice cubes cut into almost-scarily intricate shapes, from a guitar with ice strings to an ice horse with a realistic mane.

The ice is created with a CNC router, a cutting machine controlled by computer. Engineers must program the code that makes the precise cuts and contours for each cube.

How cool would it be, to serve your guests drinks, with THESE ice cubes in their glasses!? (Talk about a conversation starter!!)

Boston Marathon Yesterday

Posted on Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Powerful moment at the Boston Marathon yesterday.
This runner fell just short of the finish line…With only a few hundred feet left to go.
A reporter named Wesley Lowery captured this picture.
Lowery says first one man stopped to help the runner up…
Then another stopped to assist…But the fallen runner’s legs were too worn out. He couldn’t stand.
So another person stopped to help, and a fourth….
Until they could carry the fallen runner across the finish line. The crowd erupted in cheers.

Boston Marathon To Include Many Runners Seeking To Ease Their Grief Or Pay Tribute To Victims

Posted on Monday, April 21st, 2014

“I need to run.”

The messages started arriving just hours after the bombings, pleading for an entry into the 2014 Boston Marathon.

For months the calls and emails continued, runners begging for an opportunity to cross the finish line on Boylston Street and convinced it would ease at least some of their grief.

“They’d say, ‘I’m not a qualified runner; I don’t think I ever will be. I train. I run. I could do it. But because of what happened last year, I need to run,’” Boston Athletic Association executive director Tom Grilk said last week.

Yet for 118 years, runners have found a reason to make the trip to Boston. On Monday, more than 35,000 will leave Hopkinton to reclaim the euphoria of the finish line that was taken from them.
