The models for “American Gothic”

Grant Wood saw a house in Iowa that he decided to paint along with “the kind of people I fancied should live in that house.” He chose his sister and his dentist.

Has Activision Crossed The Uncanny Valley?

This rendering was presented by Jorge Jimenez of the video game company Activision Blizzard during the 2013 Game Developers Conference on Wednesday.

As he describes it on his blog, this is part of the company's "next-generation character rendering" and is the "culmination of many years of work in photorealistic characters (...) it seems we've crossed some kind of threshold in animation, where what's real and animated is close to impossible to tell apart."
Still waiting for a new Bruce Lee movie!!!

We live in amazing times. Here's a photo, from Mars, of a rock broken by a robot we sent. Wow.

White Mars rock dazzles scientists

Mars is supposed to be the Red Planet, but the rock - dubbed "Tintina" - is a brilliant shade of white. The unusual colour indicates the presence of hydrated minerals that formed when water flowed through the robot's landing site in ancient times. Water-bearing minerals in Tintina and elsewhere add to the growing catalogue of water evidence at this location.

The Minuum Keyboard Project - A new way to type?

The Minuum keyboard, through its simplicity, improves your touchscreen typing. Existing keyboards leave you barely enough screen to interact with your apps, and you can’t enjoy typing on them. Minuum eliminates the visual clutter of archaic mobile keyboards by adapting the keyboard to a single dimension. What enables this minimalism is our specialized auto-correction algorithm that allows highly imprecise typing. Your typing on mobile devices is inherently imprecise—and there’s nothing wrong with that. We work with that. By reducing the keyboard to a single dimension, Minuum opens up your touchscreen space for a variety of interaction possibilities—which allows for precision-entry.

VIDEO: Helmet-cam Records Mountain Climber's Wild Slide; He's OK : NPR

VIDEO: Helmet-cam Records Mountain Climber's Wild Slide; He's OK The good news is that 47-year-old Mark Roberts is OK after a terrifying slide last month down an icy cliff in Snowdonia, a region in north Wales. In this case, a climber above Roberts dislodged some ice. Chunks fell toward Roberts, who lost his grip and slid at least 100 feet over rocks, ice and snow.
