A nanoparticle injection is all it takes to let these mice see in infrared
1 mrt 00:33 - I know it's everyone's dream to see outside the wavelengths allotted to our visual systems. Well, as usual, mice have gotten there first, with the help of some clever scientists.

This robot automatically sorts and prices cards from Magic: The Gathering
28 feb 22:06 - If you’ve ever dabbled in collectible card games — Magic: The Gathering, Pokémon, etc. — you know how quickly collections can grow. One pack turns into two. Two turns into five.

JIRA is an antipattern
9 dec 15:00 - Atlassian’s JIRA began life as a bug-tracking tool.

The nation-state of the internet
8 dec 16:50 - The internet is a community, but can it be a nation-state?

Coinbase abandons its cautious approach with plan to list up to 30 new cryptocurrencies

It’s part of the broader Pivotal vision of offering you a single […]


Audi e-tron first drive: Quick, comfortable and familiar
7 dec 18:00 - Even after a few minutes behind the wheel, it’s easy to forget the Audi e-tron is electric. The SUV is not outrageous or radical, but rather pedestrian and effortless.
