"Side project" because he built it purely to test his main thesis and wanted to avoid having to wait to use his university's 32 node xeon cluster. Cue "imagine a beowolf cluster of these" jokes."

Incredible bionic arm can pick up eggs, hold a beer.
JamieKitson (757690) writes "This video uploaded to YouTube shows an amazingly advanced bionic arm. The last third or so of the video shows two incredible demonstrations that show its ability to pick up an egg without cracking it and then hold a (full) beer bottle without it slipping out of his hand. I honestly found it spine tingling. In a good way." Link to Original Source top
JamieKitson writes "British primary (elementary I think to those of you in the US) school pupil Martha/"Veg" has been taking photographs of her school dinners and blogging about them at her blog Never Seconds since April. The blog has gained in popularity and Martha decided to do something with the popularity, namely raising money for an international school dinners charity. Unfortunately the local council, Argyll and Bute, having apparently not heard of the Streisand effect, didn't like the publicity that her blog was generating and have shut her down. There is a happy ending though, similarly to Matthew Inman found recently, donations have gone through the roof and she has already passed her target." Link to Original Source top
