It's not too exciting that [Joe Grand] has a toothbrush that plays music inside your head. That's actually a trick that the manufacturer pulled off. It's that [Joe] gave his toothbrush an SD card slot for music that doesn't suck . The victim donor hardware for this project is a toothbrush meant for kids called Tooth Tunes . They've been around for years, but unless you're a kid (or a parent of one) you've never heard of them. That's because they generally play the saccharine sounds of Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers which make adults choose cavities over dental health. However, we're inclined to brush the enamel right off of our teeth if we can listen to The Amp Hour, Embedded FM, or the Spark Gap while doing so. Yes, we're advocating for a bone-conducting, podcasting toothbrush. [Joe's] hack starts by cracking open the neck of the brush to cut the wires going to a transducer behind the brushes (his first attempt is ugly but the final process is clean and minimal).

“It's becoming more and more like a tank," production designer Patrick Tatopoulos told Empire . "It doesn't need more armour, what [Batman] needs is more weaponry, because he's gonna have to really compete seriously. Missile launchers. Cannons. Little missiles on the back. All integrated into the shape of the car." There’s also ‘The Crawler’, which Empire describes as “a cockpit with legs” that “was built by the military in the 1960s, and has ended up with Batman”. It has “a flamethrower on the front and hooks on its limbs that grab onto surfaces, shoving it along.” This particular piece of hardware should come in handy when the Justice League face off against a collection of Parademons in an enclosed underground space. Several online outlines are talking about this scene, with Empire explaining it as a sizeable set piece that takes place in “an abandoned transit tunnel, which, in the film, covers the ten-mile stretch through the river from Gotham to Metropolis.

Both tools are meant to make it easier for researchers to collect eye tracking data, combine it with other biometric markers, and hopefully use all that information to learn a little bit more about how our brains work.

We've seen a bunch of replacements for nixie tubes using LEDs and edge-lit acrylic for the numbers. But one of the earliest digital voltmeters used edge-lit Lucite plates for the numbers and a lot of incandescent lamps to light them up. [stevenjohnson] has a Non-Linear Systems Model 481 digital voltmeter and he's done a teardown of it so we can get a glimpse of the insides. Again, anyone who's seen the modern versions of edge-lit numeric displays knows what they are: A series of clear plastic plates with numbers (or characters) etched into them, each with a light source beneath them. You turn one light on to light one plate, another to light another, and so on. The interesting bit here is the use of incandescent bulbs and the use of sequential relays to cycle through the lights. The relays make a lot of racket, especially with the case open. [stevenjohnson] also notes that he might have made a mistake opening up the part of the machine where the plates are stored as it took him a bit to get the plates back in place and back in the unit.

Acer has made a lot of ultrabooks, but the only one worth mentioning is the current S 13. Priced aggressively even for the high-end model, as configured, it sports a slim profile, backlit keys and a Core i7 processor. Acer is taking the perks of owning a pricier machine and making them more accessible, creating an ultrabook thats a good value without a ton of compromises. Read More

Months ago, Harmonix told us that existing "Rock Band" guitars would work with "Rock Band VR." We expected that meant that you could dust off your old gear and give at a new lease on life, but it turns out that Xbox 360 guitars don't make the cut.

By this point, my phone was completely unresponsive a total brick. It wouldn't even show signs of life plugged into the charger; nary a battery filling animation, nor a blinking LED. The freezer sounded only slightly ridiculous, so, being otherwise out of ideas, I gave it a shot. Imagine my elation when it started to boot up! I made it all the way to the home screen before it came to a dead stop, and returned to its looping ways. The almost-success of the freezer fix gave me a glimmer of hope. It seemed to suggest that the issue wasn't just one of software, but had a hardware component that could be manipulated thermally. I redoubled my efforts, coming across a video that appeared to solve the problem. [Tony Rednik] used a heat gun on the motherboard, before reassembling. This allowed the phone to boot and [Tony] reported using the phone for several months afterwards.
