man-vs-electricity Meet Dr Megavolt

0 comments
Wired Magazine has a great video on the one and only Dr. Megavolt. View it here





I saw Dr Mega volt at Burning Man where he stood atop a bus, playing with his giant tesla coil and throwing things into the electrical stream (like  that stick of his). One of the great things about this clip is the fact that he explains the awesome suit he contrived to allow him to manage some 200,000 volts! To Austin Richards,  Dr. Megavolt I simply say "Meg-a-volt, Meg-a-volt"!

Discarded Ethernet Cables Become Recycled Fashion in Colombia - Pontificia bolivariana university fashion show - io9

Back when I had money I had an idea to take fiber optic cable, strip off the plastic sheathe and then wear them in my hair. After such an project proved time consumptive and unfeasible for me I abandoned it. but looking at this great story from io9 about the use of Ethernet cable I'm both inspired and impressed. Just think you tech geeks and would be cyberist, lying around in your hard drive stacked, cable modem choked domiciles could be next new fashion trend.

I've been waiting for this since I read Dream Park by Larry Niven and Steven Barnes where the security Chief, Griffin, would have have his watch printed onto the sleeve of his shirt
