Anthropomorphic

Look at what two years on Mars did to the Curiosity Rover | The Verge - Those pictures made me oddly sad. Poor little robot. I wonder if I would've felt the same way if I'd never seen WALL-E?

IKEA Hacks

Totally went down the IKEA hack rabbit hole for a couple hours today. I'm definitely thinking of improving our Billy with some trim and mouldings, a fresh coat of paint, and possibly even some hipster backboards. (And damn, how gorgeous is this faux mid-century modern sideboard!?)

Ethical Dilemma

Should your robot driver kill you to save a child's life? - PC & Tech Authority - Interesting little ethical conundrum that I hadn't thought about with regards to self-driving cars. Is it a matter of users having a "setting" in the car for "Save me at all costs"? Or, as Rodd more cynically put it, would there be a premium upgrade for the software that includes self-preservation if you pay enough?
