Fusion Power: Are We There Yet?

Today, I just saw an amazing video of a guy who’s daring enough to put his life (and the lives of his neighbors) in danger by building a fusion power generator.

Fun-Vii: The Touchscreen Car That Shows Everyone You Need a Hobby

If you thought that cars couldn’t get much weirder, Toyota just came up with the funkiest thing imaginable: A car that has a touchscreen interface. The car also comes with an “augmented reality” interface that might be useful, but WTH, Toyota?! A touchscreen car?! It’s a vehicle used for transportation, not a toy your kid squiggles weird stick figures on when you’re not looking!

If you haven’t been under a rock, you know that solid state drives (SSDs) are the newest craze in data storage. While it’s all fine and dandy in writing, the actual implications might make you want to appreciate your “outdated” system’s hard drive.
