Dress Uses Technology to Guarantee Nip Slip Whenever Your Heartrate is Elevated

Wearable technology is a scifi idea that’s just starting to become a reality, so it’s to be expected that for a while its gaze is going to exceed its grasp, and in the world of fashion one must make allowances that one typically doesn’t for technology for pieces that blur the line between art and a functional object. But dang, wearable tech, if a dress that turns more translucent based on the speed of your heart rate doesn’t perfectly embody the vast gulf between the dreams of wearable tech and the reality.

[Updated] How Siri Got Her Voice [VIDEO]

Here’s an interesting feature on “machine language,” put together by The Verge. They touch on a lot of interesting things (and there’s a small clip of Ricardo Montalban) but if you’d like to jump straight to Siri, aka Allison Dufty, go to 3:34 in the video.
