She felt even better, and she got a lot more accomplished. She repeated this pattern for a month — one 10-microgram dose of LSD every fourth day — as per the regimen recommended by psychologist and microdosing research pioneer James Fadiman’s protocol, made mainstream-famous by ...

Hey, it HAS a C: prompt, so what's the problem?

It's the dawn of history (well, PC history, anyway), and this still-in-school pilot fish has a job working on the department's machines, including an early Tandy computer -- Radio Shack's first crack at the MS-DOS market. "We had IBM PC clones for the rest of our department's computers, but this one had snuck in somehow," fish says. "We wanted to upgrade the Tandy's drive capacity, and I had a 'hard card' -- a hard drive attached to a contr...

Well, almost.  Prolific leaker Benjamin Geskin has posted images of a purported "dummy" iPhone 8 which means it looks pretty much the same as the final device, but it's just an empty shell, with nothing inside.  The photos show the device from all angles, and it does ad...

Mind-bending 360° Video Takes You From Space to Tokyo and Back Again

GIF So far, 360° videos have mostly worked as novelty items that are rarely impressive. But I have to say this motion graphics exercise that starts in a sort of Max Headroom-ish outer space blasts through a deconstructed Tokyo and finally turns into a Space Odyssey-style head trip is one of the finest examples of the technique that anyone’s produced. Japanese R&D firm Wowlab produced the clip using its own in-house omnidirectional motio...

Apple workers outside of the headquarters eventually spotted the shady behavior, leading to the meeting with Kalanick. The approach isn't that unusual for Uber (it recently admi...

This project runs four stepper motors on the same controller. Therefore to have enough pins, I couldn't use a common H-bridge and the Stepper library from the Arduino library page. After some web searches, I found the AccelStepper library from Mike McCauley...
