Quantum Statement

The New Internet, the New World

You know I love technology

Today, the Internet is popping with cool shit. To quote Homer Simpson, “I feel like a kid in some kind of store.”

First, this news item [via] my favorite raker of muck or should I say drudge.

A Japanese-led research team said it had made a seeing, hearing and smelling robot that can carry human beings and is aimed at helping care for the country’s growing number of elderly.

I am pretty ambivalent about the idea of having cyborgs take care of the convalescents in my life. I would have to try one out for a while. If the robot does a good job of taking care of me, and doesn’t run amuck ala Katamari Damacy then I will trust he/she/it with my loved ones. Seriously though, what if you had the option of trying out a nursing home before consigning a family member to one? Would you? Maybe it should be required.

Now over to Ireland, where the marketing wizards at Guiness & Co. have developed this device called the Guinness Surger which will revolutionize life as we know it. The Guinness Surger transforms a crappy can of guiness into a beautiful, delicious, heady pint. I tried to understand how this thing works, but the science is lost on me [via]. Now if only it were powered by USB. Then, typaing thsi bolg woiuold be much mcuch eassier..
