  • Professor Says Social Media Makes Us More Socially Awkward In Real Life

    Having a presence on every social media site must mean that you’re incredibly well-adjusted socially, right? A professor at MIT would disagree.

  • Elon Musk’s Hyperloop Will Work, Says High-end Aviation software

    Elon Musk, the brilliant billionaire wonder boy, has created a transportation concept called the Hyperloop that we’re sure you’ve heard of already. Naysayers came out of the woodwork to scoff at the beautiful sketches that had no “substance”. The physical prototype is still years away, but Musk might be on to something. Ansys (ANSS), a maker of very  used to design planes, trains, automobiles and all manner of other things, has fed the Hyperloop specifications into a computer and come away impressed. “I don’t immediately see any red flags,” says Sandeep Sovani, the director of land transporation strategy at Ansys. “I think it is quite viable.” The Loop will shoot pods through a tunnel via air pressure at 800 MPH, bolting the pods from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 30 minutes. Tweaks, however, must be made in the design and bearings throughout the tube, but in an overall simulation the design and concept works. Advantage Musk.

  • Real Life Tony Stark, Elon Musk, Channels Iron Man with 3-D Gesture Technology

    If you’re not familiar with Elon Musk yet, he’s a South African born version of Tony Stark, the fictional billionaire, genius, superhero playboy. Though he might not be the playboy socialite Tony is, it’s probably because he’s too busy, building space travel rockets or a Hyper loop train that can take you from San Fransisco to LA in 30 minutes or being the CEO of Tesla Motors. I’m not exactly sure if Musk created what you are about to see as an ironic gag (because of the constant Tony Stark comparisons) or has been working on it for years, but he basically took the hand gesture technology from the Iron Man movies and built a Leap Motion controller to manipulate 3D designs, Musk even notes the film in his dialogue. “If you can just go in there and do what you need to do — just understanding the fundamentals of the thing should work, as opposed to figure out how to make the computer make it work, then you can achieve a lot more in a lot shorter period of time.” Says Musk Musk uses three different type of gesture based design, from a simple desktop to an immersive virtual reality more »
