Crazy calculator isn’t interested in mathematics


We’d normally expect to crunch numbers into a calculator, and have that damned machine give us an answer. The crazy calculator would do something like that as well, but once you flip its switch, well it couldn’t really care about all that math hocus pocus. Punch in the numbers, and the calculator will feed you with replies like “Who Cares?” and “Gimme a Break.” To be honest, I can make the calculator say more interesting things, without going into all those gimmicks. 8008.

Airbus shows more of its concept plane for 2050

Almost a year ago, we had a look at the future of the airplane, courtesy Airbus. Their concept for 2050 is about a super long passenger craft with slim wings, semi-embedded engines, and a U-shaped tail. An interesting part is the cabin of course, which could go transparent when required, giving passengers a new look at their surroundings. We doubt it would go invisible like Wonder Woman’s plane, but it does offer a transparent cabin and a virtual golf course to go along, as evidenced in these freshly released images by Airbus.

Iceland writing its constitution on Facebook


If you want to gauge the power of social networking, consider this: Iceland is writing its new constitution on Facebook. The draft of the crowdsourced constitution is being prepared by a 25-member council, and they are open to suggestions from civilians, even on Facebook. Interested citizens can give their suggestions, contribute to online debates, and contribute to their country’s constitution. Incidentally, 90% of households in Iceland have broadband connections.

Steampunk insect sculptures can be scary


Scary spidery robot sculptures like the images above are exactly the type we never want to see. But if you can handle the scary, cold glances of these weird insect eyes, go ahead and visit Catherinette Rings store on Etsy to shop for the sculptures. The sculptures are made from watch parts, copper bits, brass wires, and eyes they apparently plucked off the devil’s minions in hell or they could have used taxidermy glass, but it doesn’t sound that awesome.

Chinese guy builds himself an Iron Man Mark I suit, mocks Tony Stark

Tony Stark started off by building a bulky Mark I suit from scratch, Wang Xiao Kang has started off by building a Mark I suit from scratch. From what we hear, Kang wanted to have a run straight form the Mark III, but couldn’t quite get it right. So he settled on building the Mark I suit, that weighs a 110 pounds and includes an LED light arc reactor. Kang apparently spend something around $460 to complete the suit, and is now all set to take his DIY skills in another attempt to create the Mark III suit. We assume he’ll also laugh in the face of Tony Stark after completing the second suit.
