Hanson's Einstein Robot
David Hanson creates robot faces that have been dubbed "among the most advanced in the world" by the BBC, and inspired Science to label Hanson "head of his class" in social robotics. Hanson Robotics realizes biologically-inspired robots, that is,machines that behave like living creatures. Specifically, they seek to model the behavior and movements of people, in robots that act and react virtually indistinguishably from their human counterparts. Their social robots are capable of mimicking not just human emotions and facial expressions, but eye contact, face recognition, and naturalistic spoken conversation. [Check the videos!]

Weird Meat
WeirdMeat is the online representation of a purely academic project I began a few years ago. I was studying the Humanities in college, comparing different cultures, and one aspect that really struck my curiosity was how different cultures around the world feel about food. Some foods are taboo, some are forbidden, some are considered inedible -- depending on the culture. Why does one human refuse to eat dog, and another refuse to eat pig? Why does one culture eat haggis, another one delight in slimy fermented soy beans? Do we only refuse some foods when we know what they are? Why?

The Flash Mind Reader
Telepathy is the claimed innate ability of humans and other creatures to communicate information from one mind to another, without the use of extra tools such as speech or body language. Considered a form of extra-sensory perception or anomalous cognition, telepathy is often connected to various paranormal phenomena such as precognition, clairvoyance and empathy. Though many scientific experiments into telepathy have been conducted, including recent ones by respected universities (some claiming significant positive results), telepathy remains controversial and is not widely accepted by scientists.

Earth Lights on Google Maps
"I've been working with Google Map's API for about 3 weeks now, putting different imagery under the Maps interface. Today, I've pushed to release the map showing Earth lights at night.

People die, points are accumulated, and the lucky schmo with the most points at the end of the year wins the jackpot.

Copper is a comic strip by Kazu Kibuishi that has enjoyed both webcomic and print appearances. Kibuishi's Copper largely offers hidden and/or double meanings in each episode.

Typically most visual art is stuck within the context of time and artistic statement when its made. But what if we create a design framework for a piece of art thats flexible. A dynamic framework that searches for recent contextual imagery from the vast sea that is the internet and real time algorithmically (based on set of mathematical rules) composes a layout from those results. The visual results are automatically ranked by popularity according a system of rules (in this case Google image search rules). Launch
