That the traditional light bulb form factor still exists is purely a function of incumbency. On its own it's effective for general illumination, but not much else; it must be aimed, guided and/or reflected with shades and housings to provide the results we want, whether it's ambient lighting or task. It can be tough to re-think something so entrenched, but product designer Øvind Slaatto and the folks at Danish company Shade have designed a light from scratch with function in mind. One of their insights is that there's times when you want light shining upwards to bounce off of the ceiling, providing soft ambient light; there are times when you prefer stronger ambient lighting, as from a source going sideways; and there are times when you want it shining straight down at the task--cooking, reading, etc.--that you're conducting. Here's what they've come up with, and though it isn't spherical, they've named it the Orb : The downside is that it's fabulously expensive, ringing in at USD $189 per bulb or $347 for a pair.

What will be really crucial now will be how the gold price moves. “I think we’re going to see a tremendous amount of volatility,” says Perkins. “The mood around US interest rates has not been good for gold. But on the other side of that there’s going to be an inflationary effect, and gold is the traditional hedge against inflation.” Perkins points out that under the assumptions set forth in the Company’s PEA, for every US$50 upward move in the gold price US$20 mln is added to the net present value for Relief Canyon. Given the decreased risk in terms of finance, permitting and jurisdiction, the attractions are clear. “For people who are interested in gaining leverage to the gold price, this could be quite an opportunity,” says Perkins. The results of the PFS will make for fascinating reading.

We'll find out just a few short months into the new year... Kong: Skull Island story Entertainment Weekly, dished up some plot-revealing quotes from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who teased that Kong: Skull Island would be set in the '70s, "a time where it was believable that we could still be confronted with myth." It stars Hiddleston as an ex-British SAS tracker and Larson as a war photographer who venture to the island when a NASA-based world mapping program finds a mysterious island...

In order for the devices to receive the charging signal, Disney had to design a receiver that allowed the researchers to "power many devices simultaneously." Including an iPhone, the other objects included an RC car, a fan, a lamp, and six other devices. Although the technology is still nascent and the receiver is bulky, Disney's "Volumetric Wireless Power for Livable Spaces" is an interesting look at what future wireless charging systems might be able to accomplish without the restrictions of the inductive charging pads popular today. Because of the restrictions of charging mats, Apple's Phil Schiller has said in the past that the introduction of a wireless charging pad for iPhone would actually be " more complicated " and he remained unconvinced that it was actually a convenient solution to traditional outlet and USB cable charging. Still, a prominent rumor for the iPhone 8 is its inclusion of wireless charging in some form, with Apple recently joining the Wireless Power Consortium in order to assist in the open development of the Qi wireless charging standard.

Thousands of semi-naked men clad only in loincloths took part in the biggest 'naked festival' in Japan, at the Saidaiji Temple in Okayama on Saturday. Men in fundoshi, the traditional Japanese loincloths, gather every year at the temple to compete for the honourable title of 'lucky man.' After purifying themselves by taking a dip in freezing water, the men struggle fiercely with one another over a pair of lucky sticks, the shingi, which are thrown into the crowd from above by a priest. According to local tradition, the men who get hold of the shingi and manage to prevent others from snatching them away will be rewarded with a year of happiness. Over the past 500 years, Hadaka Matsuri, or 'Naked Festival' has been held at the temple.

From a distance, there's little to suggest that the building at the entrance of the Druze heartland village of Mukhtara in Lebanon's Chouf mountains is a mosque. After all, despite practising a faith that is an offshoot of Shiite Islam, the Druze do not worship at mosques, and the building strays far from the traditional rendering of a Muslim prayer house.

Researchers in Hamburg, Germany say that swarms of magnetic micro-machines may be able to treat cancer from within the human body – and unlike traditional cancer-fighting radiation, they would not harm healthy tissue. Nanobot swarms could even one day be programmed into an adaptable medical implant that could change as needed by the body without invasive surgery. RT America’s Manila Chan has the story.

We're looking forward to that and relay implementations of the flip-flops and other elements he'll need for a full computer. And pay no mind to our earlier dismissal of non-traditional computer projects. It's worth checking out this discrete 7400 logic computer and this all-transistor build . They're impressive too in their own way, if a bit quieter than [Clickety Clack]'s project. Filed under: classic hacks , computer hacks

William's new look racer has landed with sleeker, more traditional single-seater proportions; it could signal a return to form for the sport When Williams pulled the wraps off its wider, lower and sleeker FW40 challenger this morning it confirmed 2017’s Formula 1 cars will look like proper racers again. Gone are the awkward, lanky proportions of the post-2009 era cars, in their place is a shape that harks back to the 1990s when F1 cars were cool and the sport was almost gladiatorial. Along with the dimension change, the FW40 gains angled front wing and fins on its side pods. Larger bargeboards, vertical slats and a bigger floor show that this car will work the air a heck of a lot harder than last year’s FW38, and wider rubber will mean mechanical grip is also boostedkey in ensuring cars can still follow each other closely. The results should make for higher speeds through the corners, more G-forces for drivers to contend with and cars that are even more of a handful to drive.
