Hey guys! Your Nerdcore main man here with some new vocabulary for you! Have you ever heard the term Grinder? Before today me neither. Well I have come to find out that it is a term describing a certain people who life hack human bodies augmenting them with tech implants. Sounds futuristic and cool? Yeah it fucking does! Anyhoo this guy got tired of headphones and earbud wires getting in the way and getting all broken and stuff SO what does he decide to do? He gets a small magnet implanted in the Tragus. (That little stiff thing in in front of your ear.) It receives audio signals via magnetic field that is produced by a coil hanging around his neck. Although the audio quality isn’t all that great it is a first step in new tech for this which I think is pretty cool and definitely should be watched for the audiophile.
Ok my fellow Nerdcore’s and Whovians. We are all aware what this year means. This is the 50’th Anniversary of Doctor Who. Alot if not all is speculation besides the fact that David Tennant and Matt Smith will be on screen at the same time solving what ever problems and crisis that Moffat can throw at them. All the while being awesome and wearing bow ties. Why? Because bow ties are cool.
A quote from Matt Smith (The Doctor):
“What [Steven Moffat’s] written is just spellbinding. It’s one of the best [episodes] ever, ever, ever. There are parts of it in mad 3D. But what [Moffat’s] done with the idea is really clever, it’s not just throwing things at the screen. [Moffat’s] been wanting to write this script for ever and he’s really done it justice. There are elements to it which are different from normal episodes. When you combine all the elements that are different it’s not just an episode of Doctor Who, it’s something else, something bigger and more exciting.”
Beyond that I have absolutely no information on it what so ever. I am counting down the days to the premier. Rumors of Eccleson and possibly even the 8th Doctor, Paul McGann might show up. Like I said its speculation. Until then we have to gruelingly wait for months for an already much anticipated episode. I’m sure the original creators of the show had no idea it would blow up to be anything like it is today.
Ever wonder what it would be like to be Ironman? Ever wonder what it would be like to be Tony Stark? Ever wonder what it would cost to be Ironman? Well today is your lucky day since I’ve found a neat little run down on the costs of the armor and the tech and random things Tony has laying around.
Sometimes I wonder in the unlimited parallel universes alongside ours if there really is a Doctor. Well for SCIENCE! is just narrowing my opinion of that down to definitely in one of these. Using the Kepler Telescope, NASA has found a transiting circumbinary multi-planet system. Two worlds orbiting two stars. Which is the exact description of Gallifrey, The Doctor’s home planet. It is also akin to the luxury-planet-builders’ planet Magrathea from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
Though officially named: Kepler 47 (five values off from the answer to everything), you and I both know what every scientist and astronomer is calling it.
This could very well be N.A.S.A.’s new slogan. Their new space suit prototype Z-1 and Portable Life Support system 2.0 look akin to Disney/Pixar’s Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story 1,2 and 3. As of late this design wouldn’t be the only Disney/NASA cross over. They are designing an “Educational Experience” centered around the flight of Buzz, that will hopefully get children and young adults interested in space exploration, science and technology. Personally I think this is really neat. The Space Suit is domed with white base with a neon green trim. With this all I can say to NASA is: TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!
