Imogen Heap helps invent gloves that will “change the way we make music”

Read More

I don’t think anyone could possibly imagine what having these would mean to me

theres too much you could do with this i wouldnt know what to do oh god

this is so fucking COOL

The Mi.Mu Glove is on Kickstarter, the campaign ends May 3.

@3:03:
It’s really exciting to see what people might do with hacking them. So, the software is gonna be open-source, and so is the hardware.

Considering how much data the gloves are able to process (right down to specific gestural input), and the fact that the gloves are wireless, this could go far beyond music. Mix these gloves with the Oculus Rift, and they might just become the solution for controller-free VR Input.

I really, really hope the campaign is funded.

My mom’s friend adopted this lovely dog after he was abandoned by his previous family. His name is Shaun. Shaun had always been very good at eating all his food. Every last bit that was, he ate it. One day he started leaving a little bit behind. He wouldn’t eat everything, no matter what. He always left a little behind. Every morning when my mom’s friend checked Shaun’s bowl, the food was gone. That was very strange, because Shaun always spent the night by her side. One night she decided to investigate the food situation. She waited quietly by the food bowl and then, in the middle of the night, a cat came through the window and ate the remaining food. She noticed the cat was actually pregnant. A week or so later the cat came into her house and gave birth to 6 little kittens. Shaun took care of them as if they were his own babies. My mom’s friend adopted the cat too (her name is Meow) and they took care of the kittens until they all found a loving home. Nowadays Meow and Shaun live happily together as a family and they each have their little bowl of food.

KEEP THOSE JEANS ALIVE

Everybody knows the pain of shopping for a decent pair of jeans, and the even greater pain of losing a really good pair to a hole in the crotch.  Sewing torn denim back together is not a thing that nature intended, because the world is a dark, cruel place.

But I wasn’t gonna stand for that! I’m playing God, I thought. I’m fixing these jeans, and the laws of nature can go fuck themselves. And then it worked.  Here’s how to do it:

  1. Buy some Shoe Goo from your local CVS or something.  It’s pretty cheap and you can glue basically anything with it.  I glue the soles of my shoes back on with this stuff.
  2. Sacrifice some mistake jeans to make a patch, and glue that patch to the inside of your jeans.  Glue it down real good.  Do this in a well-ventilated area because Shoe Goo is toxic stuff until it dries.
  3. Let it cure for 24 hours, and then put your jeans back on and flip God the bird, because you have just performed a miracle.  You have saved your favorite jeans from certain garbage-canning.

One tube of glue is enough to save a lot of jeans, plus some shoes on the side.  The patch holds up pretty well in the washer/dryer, and is only a little stiffer than two layers of denim would be anyway.  Boom.

i threw out a pair of jeans that had worn through right on the butt and to this day i’m still sad

AHAHAHA. See if I have to go jean shopping now (All five of my jeans recently wore through in the crotch. One will be sacrificed to save the rest.
