Scantron Hero

The best thing about Scantron Hero is that every line is a single note, so I suppose the best comparison would be Hard mode on Guitar Hero. Because you know with expert there would be a healthy number of double and even triple note lines. Just don’t play the same note consecutively too many times or people might get suspicious ...

How to Cheat Using Nothing But a Coke Bottle

Let me be the first to say that true geeks don’t cheat. First off, we know how easy it is to get caught. But mostly, we prefer a challenge over the guilt of stealing someone else’s work. Except at Calculus. Fuck Calculus. Anyway, this ingenious geeky student devised a plot so intricately ridiculous and time-consuming that it might just work. ...

D+Caf Test Strips: Disgruntled Waitresses Beware

If you’re unfortunate enough to have a waitress who is having a bad night, don’t give her any shit.

The CAPTCHA process is famous for preventing spam and helping translate books. So, Jeffrey Augustine went back to third grade arts and crafts to create the Dream Captcha. It’s inspired by Native American dream catchers and the “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart” used by many online sites to inhibit automated software from posing as ...

Cloaking Technology Sunders Tsunamis

We haven’t covered much cloaking technology and that’s a shame because it’s starting to come into its own. Stefan Enoch at the Fresnel Institute in Marseille, France says that established cloaking principles, such as steering microwave light around an object, could be applied to ocean waves.

Nissan’s New Bot Prevents Collisions

Thanks to Nissan’s Biomimetic Robot Car (BR23C), crash test dummies could find themselves out of a job. Having been compared to R2-D2 (but bearing no resemblance whatsoever), the BR23C will not maintain your car like a mechanic would, rather, it will play the part of backseat driver. The robot is the “poster-bot” for Nissan’s new crash prevention technology. Drawing upon ...

Scientists are always trying to replicate phenomenons here on earth. With the Large Hadron Collider attempting to test various theories and even replicate the big bang, you’d think scientists all over the world have their hands full. On the contrary, scientists at the University of Maryland have their own little maniacal tests to conduct. They’ve built a ten foot high, ...
