  2. Do Real Robots and A.I. Pose the Same Problems Seen in Chappie?

    Artificial intelligence is already a part of day-to-day life in the modern world, but as capable as machines have become, we've still got some hurdles to overcome before we've got the robotic police forces and sentient AI of Neill Blomkamp's Chappie. But maybe, if we look at the advancements humanity has made in machine learning and robotics so far and what it's done for us, we can get a clearer picture of whether or future will involve harmony with the machines or running in terror.

  10. Hey Girl: Before Gosling, There Was Edison [Sponsored]

    You know Edison the engineer, the inventor, the magnate -- but what about Edison the Internet romantic?

    Yes, we’re already past peak Hey Girl saturation, but perhaps that’s why we enjoy GE’s Thomas Edison-inspired variation on it. It’s reminiscent of everything we loved about the original with a smart twist courtesy of one of history's most notable engineers and inventors. Edison’s no Ryan Gosling, of course, but hey, who among us is?

    Because what's a show about lycanthropy without a little blood?

    Have you watched Teen Wolf? If not, why not?

  18. 7 Things We Would Like to See Thrown Through a Jet Engine

    Planes, and their engines, go through a ton of testing prior to ever actually being in the air. How else do you figure out if, for example, it can withstand a barrage of a dozen or so geese slamming into it at high speed? Even so, jet engines are typically only tested for a specific set of conditions that it might encounter out in the wild. These are extreme, sure, but we can't help but wish they'd get a little more, shall we say, creative in their endeavors. That's why we've compiled a list of things we'd really like to be sent through a jet engine. For science, of course.
