thatcheerfulchapeau please confirm your country’s shameful lack of bagels and defend yourself tia

Bollocks. We Australians know what bagels are. They are sandwiches made of lies and deceit. Who wants a bloody sandwich with a humongous hole in the centre of it?! That’s less fucking sandwich for me to eat, and they expect me to buy into that con? Jesus Velociraptor Christ, woman. I’ll have a meat pie and some hot chips over a pissant bagel any day.

Imogen Heap helps invent gloves that will “change the way we make music”

I don’t think anyone could possibly imagine what having these would mean to me

theres too much you could do with this i wouldnt know what to do oh god

this is so fucking COOL

The Mi.Mu Glove is on Kickstarter, the campaign ends May 3.

@3:03:
It’s really exciting to see what people might do with hacking them. So, the software is gonna be open-source, and so is the hardware.

Considering how much data the gloves are able to process (right down to specific gestural input), and the fact that the gloves are wireless, this could go far beyond music. Mix these gloves with the Oculus Rift, and they might just become the solution for controller-free VR Input.

I really, really hope the campaign is funded.

Followers, I don’t ask much of you, but if you can, PLEASE fund this project, or at least pass it along. I want to hack these for Skyrim.

More ejaculations of wonder.

I think I can mark the transition out of innocence in my childhood as the exact moment I learned that ‘Ejaculate’ did not exclusively mean ‘to exclaim abruptly’. 

To this day, I feel a certain glumness that I cannot use the word in the context I learned it via Arthur Conan Doyle’s writings without getting some very strange looks.
