Scientists transferred memories from one snail to another. This VR point-and-shoot camera will let you rewind your life and relive your memories.
Do you find yourself longing for the internet of blogs and BBS?
Dan does. He laments the buttoned-down life of the contemporary internet.
But there's still great stuff to be found out there. I found some pretty cool websites and managed to read all about the sexualization of robots. We can put a human on the moon, but robots still can make a decent cup of joe.
I stole some tools from the brains trust. And I found time to gauge how close we are to "The Beast: A Frankenstein Reality Show".
Not that far at all.

📰 Newsletter of the Week
Often imitated 😉 but never equaled. This is absolutely essential for developers of any stack, and designers of any platform. It's also made in Australia, by a Kiwi, which is a better combination than pizza and sauce.
It is only the first of many. Someone tell Dan, the internet is back baby!
🤖 Robots et. al.
Includes some pretty cool film-noir type images of robots. Buuut the sex robots are still stuck in that creepy phase...at least that's what I've heard.
I did notice that the sex robots seem to be way more advanced than robots designed to help keep our clothes on. Which shows you that technology changes everything, but never our priorities.
Google says "hold our bourbon apple sangria" as they work out a slightly scary way for AI to isolate voices in a crowd. 🏟️

Well, that went by fast. Next week I will be on vacation, so there will be a brief respite from killer, sexy, helpful robots.
If I could see one game character in a different game, then Mario in Doom seems like a good fit.
