Things We Saw Today: Everyone Hates The Science Fair


Aw, but I love the science fair! I guess I’m a statistical outlier. I mean, you can’t argue with that graph. (via Geeks Are Sexy)

  • Maria von Trapp, the inspiration for The Sound of Music, died at home last Tuesday. She was 99. (via Digital Spy)
  • Much digital ink was spilled this past week over Capcom’s upcoming dungeon crawler Deep Down. After initial reports that the playable character roster would exclude female characters due to “the narrative,” producer Kazunori Sugirua clarified that the game had only one (male) playable character. If you’re still in need of catharsis over the general state of playable female characters, Brenna Hillier’s fiery retort to the original report is worth a read.

A paralyzed woman has regained her ability to walk, thanks to a 3D-printed exoskeleton. A 3D. Printed. Exoskeleton. (via Gizmodo)

  • DJs, rejoice: The Muppet Movie soundtrack is being re-released (in limited quantities) on vinyl. (via Tough Pigs)
  • An Oculus Rift-supported clone of The Legend of Zelda allows the player to journey through Hyrule in first person. The future is now. (via Polygon)

Lovely, yes, but will it keep a traveler on his feet for a day of long labor, even if he be one of the tall men of Minas Tirith? (via That’s Nerdalicious)

    That board almost completely encapsulates our family’s experiences with Science Fairs (grades 4-8), except that both daughters actually learned a lot about their projects and placed pretty high, one of them even won one year. And, no, we the parents DID NOT do either girl’s projects ever. But there was yelling (we were def in the 90%) and about twice as many “family hours” (each) devoted to each year’s projects.

    All in all, bring on Science Fair!

    Okay, the guy narrating The Legend of Zelda Occulus Rift thingee has apparently NEVER played it before. C’mon, that’s insanity.

    I kind of wish they would keep things like the exoskeleton under wraps until they are inexpensive and widely available. I’m sure there’s nothing like being disabled, seeing that and not having £34k
    :/

    Okay, you guys should know what I’m talking about it. Is it me, or is Meryl Davis (the US figure skater) a ringer for Nana Visitor (Kira Nerys)?

    Maria von Trapp (3rd oldest child) of the von Trapp family has passed away. Not to be confused with the step-mother, Maria Kutschera von Trapp, who passed away 1987.
