Diablo 4 leak may have just spoiled a BlizzCon reveal

We may be seeing the resurrection of an iconic franchise soon. A leak in German magazine Game Star may have just spilled the existence of Diablo IV, the latest entry in the dungeon crawler series.

Scientists create cancer-resistant mouse chimeras that age 25% slower

A team of researchers from the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre have developed a method for creating a sort of ‘super mouse’ that’s slimmer, cancer resistant, and lives 25% longer than regular mice. Astonishingly, this feat’s been accomplished without gene therapy. Rather than cut and paste genes together to create a designer mouse, the researchers combined two zygotes to create a chimera with one, specific defining feature: hyper-long telomeres. Scientists have long suspected that telomeres, the protective envelopes that keep our genetic data safe, were the key to aging. Whenever our cells divide, our telomeres become shorter and we lose…

Welcome to the Mariana Trench of uncanny valleys.

Called ‘Skin-On,’ the silicone-molded faux flesh was developed as a novel method of human-computer-interface. The idea, according to the team’s research paper, is to push the bounds of intuitive interactivity: There is a long history of research into the design of artificial skin in the field of Robotics, either to help with environment exploration, or to endow robots with human-like sensing capabilities. Artificial…

JBL 100 Classic Review: An iconic 70’s speaker revived as a modern standout

Tell me if this image seems familiar: Though the ad series – known as ‘Blown Away Guy’ – was meant to sell Maxell cassettes, it’s the speaker blasting the sound that draws your eyes. In the heydays of 70s hi-fi, few speakers were as famous as JBL‘s L100. Considered one of the best speakers for rock, and armed a unique waffle-shaped grille in bright colors, it’s no great surprise the L100 was cemented in one of the most iconic audio campaigns of the era. At least, that’s the lore surrounding the L100. I was born in 1990, so I have…
