San Francisco's Bay Bridge keeps its computer-controlled lights

by Jon Fingas
The 25,000 computer-driven LED lights on San Francisco's Bay Bridge were only meant to be part of a two-year art project, but it looks like they'll eventually become a permanent (and frankly, rather pretty) part of the landscape. The non-profit behin...

THAT is awesome.
@GN - 3DP watch

Derby was born with deformations in both of his front legs, making movement and any kind of speed difficult, if not impossible. Now, he can run. The husky mix was fitted out with two prosthetics, custom-made on 3D sculpting software to fit the pup's ...

hue, vietnam: breakfast at quan cam

we arrived at 8:45 in the morning. there was an optional breakfast buffet at the hotel, but phil and i broke off in search of morning soup, a ritual the other tour mates are becoming familiar with.

and we found what we were looking for - or really, more than we were expecting - at quan cam. they start serving at 6am and they only serve til they run out of soup.

we were met with a smile, a gesture toward a low table with the now familiar plastic stools, and the promise of warm goodness on a grey morning in hue.

we tucked into our bun bo hue, the city’s signature dish, and passed nearly not a word between us.

achievement unlocked.

It's hard to covertly gather intelligence on the open seas; conventional drones and submarines make it rather obvious that something's up. The US Navy might just have a stealthier option with its experimental GhostSwimmer drone, which recently finish...
