Paleo-Future has a cool post on a portfolio of probabilities, a way cool Flickr set of a future imagined in the 1960s. Images like this and this both bring to mind and surpass long ago memories of reading Popular Science magazine.
Synthtopia posts about a cool crank-controlled bent Furby sequencer. The creator of this glitch-filled gadget calls it The Furby Gurdy. (Now there's a name you can hang your hat on.)
If Furbies kinda freak you out, this ain' gonna help . . . But any fans of circuit bent toys and crazy well-machined gizmos will be happy, happy, happy.
