Amazon Hack – Kindle 2 Hacked to Run Ubuntu Linux!

It looks like Jesse Vincent has hacked an Amazon Kindle 2 to run a custom version of Ubuntu Linux! Well, the Kindle 2 does run on ARM, there’s a lot of linux software out there that’s running on ARM including the Palm Pre but this is pretty amazing indeed.

I could not find any further details on how to accomplish this but I can say one thing, if you can make use of Kindle 2’s EDVO connection, you might just have hacked a “free” per-say, linux computer that uses very litt

After 35 years of Amputation, Hand Transplant still proves Successful!

Wow, check out this man who’ve had a hand transplant after 35 years of non-use on his amputated arm.  I am still amazed at the fact the hand transplant itself was successful, I dearly hope for every amputated person to get their arms/legs back through transplants.

When Savage had both hands, part of his right brain responded to his left hand, and a corresponding part of his left brain responded to his right hand. After the amputation, that same part of his left brain would have been sensory-deprived and thus ready to adopt duties of adjacent

NYU Student creates DIY Virtual Girlfriend

NYU Student creates a 2-D virtual girlfriend that will respond to his kisses and movements.  Very interesting, this might good for relaxing 9-5 men who don’t have partners.

It’s simple to behold — a single mattress, tucked into a dark, curtained back room of the showcase space. On it: a lithe brunette. She’s perfectly quiet, but once you sit or lie down, she responds to your every move. Lie on your back, she snuggles up right next to you in a log position. Curl up in the fetal position, she spoons. The only hitch: She’s 2

LED wristwatch!

Yes, this would be a new experience for most people, trying to figure out time with those things… But, if you are up to challenge, go for it!

Shinshoku tells the time with a set of impenetrable color-coded LEDs that shine through holes in the metal mesh wristband. It requires that you rewire your brain to learn an entirely new time-telling system, which is good mental exercise, and it means that no one will ever ask to borrow your watch
