no laughter no learning
nothing to remember
the way of this one sickens me
he brings me sorrow when I have sorrow
he brings me madness when I have madness…
Charles Bukowski, Burning In Water Drowning In Flame (via introspectivepoet)
I wish you were here, You piece of shit.
I want to beat you up so bad
For all that you have done
Then I want to cuddle you close
Because I miss you.
I want to see you cry so badly
Because I want you to feel what I feel
But I will kiss your eyes and hold you tight
When you are asleep
Because I still love you.
I want to kill you so bad
Because you do not deserve to live after all that you have done
But I will be by your grave every second of my remaining days
because I will be missing you madly, truly, deeply.
I want to throw you into the darkness
Because i want you to live the way I am living
And will always be living
But I will slowly glow for you
Because I still want to be your light.
I want to see you bleed so badly
Because you drained all the blood in my heart, killing me.
Maybe after that we can be ghosts together
Invisible and in love.
Only you, colossal idiot, can break me and hurt me this bad
And it should be mutual
So I will protect you from everything else
Wadi, which is solar-powered of course, works like an alternative bottle top. You screw it in place, leave it in the sun (you can measure several bottles at once if they’re close together), and then consult a progress bar on the side. An unhappy smiley indicates bad water. One, two, three, four bars (like on a mobile phone) show water getting cleaner. Finally, when there’s a happy face, you’re good to go.
Lytro’s innovative way of capturing a complete, 3D “light field” version of a scene instead of just quickly snapping a 2D photograph. It’s what lets you refocus a picture after the fact, or convert it to 3D, or subtly shift the perspective of the shot without ever having moved the camera.
Some very interesting tech at play here. The Lytro Illum will not revolutionize photography right now, but give it a few iterations and it just might. The innovative way of capturing an image also brings other benefits such as for example a more effective lens design. The Illum has a 30-250mm zoom lens with an impressive f/2.0 fixed aperture. Other specs include a 1 inch sensor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 804 processor and a 4 inch touchscreen. Oh, and a $1,599 price tag.
Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.

A quick look at some of the wondrous work in robotics done by Festo.
German engineering firm Festo is creating a robot army. Sounds scary, right? But there’s no need to fear a “Skynet”-type apocalypse quite yet, because these robots want to do good by making laborious tasks easier in the factories of the future. And they’re using nature as their inspiration.
Festo summarizes the motivation behind their research on their website: “Gripping, moving, controlling and measuring – nature performs all of these tasks instinctively, easily and efficiently. What could be more logical than to examine these natural phenomena and learn from them?”
