"Sovereign Citizens" are some of the scariest morons in the country right now.
"We’ve gotten really used to the dial turned up to way too sexy. We do have to speak out about it. It’s not like if I’m drawing, my hand slips and suddenly it’s too sexy! Ok, that is a thong you drew…that was a conscious choice."
Fashions of the Future as Imagined in 1893
Illustrations from “Future Dictates of Fashion” by W. Cade Gall that was published in the January 1893 issue of The Strand magazine.
At first I thought this was some “fashion of witches and wizards through the ages” type thing but nah everyone is supposed to dress like this. I wish everyone dressed like this.
Someone put these into production immediately, we have a lot of catching up to do.
Imogen Heap helps invent gloves that will “change the way we make music”

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