MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,
"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

HOLY SHIT ARE YOU KIDDING ME
THIS IS THE KIND OF CRAZY COOL-ASS SHIT THAT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR MY WHOLE GODDAMN LIFE
IN THOSE MOVIES AND GAMES AND SHIT WHERE PEOPLE HAVE THOSE CRAZY HIGH-TECH TABLES AND SUCH WHERE THEY MANIPULATE DATA AND VIRTUAL OBJECTS AND STUFF WITH THE WAVE OF A HAND AND SHIT
EVERY TIME I’M LIKE “…i want one”
AND WE’RE GETTING THERE
ITS THE FUCKING WAR TABLE FROM MASS EFFECT
HERE WE GO IT’S HAPPENING
#we’re all on the same page re: his Batman but I submit to you that his Bruce Wayne would be out of this world #all chuckles and goofball smiles and unintentional sext selfies and tuxedos and acting sloppy drunk yet maintaining full adorableness #he’d be pulling faces and wearing Kanye shutter shades at the polo and he’d have a casual shoe collection that needed its own room #and everybody would be like ‘daawww that Bruce Wayne what an airhead but so cute right? did you hear he bought lunch for like 8 paparazzos who were waiting for him outside his fave restaurant?’ #and he’d just be this big goofy pouty celeb built like a brick shithouse #meanwhile #he’s working out on the parallel bars in the batcave - face like thunder and the righteous fury of all time
Wake Your Watsons Up 6/30: Retirement Snoozing in the Garden

The sun was warm, but the sea breeze was cool and soothing. Watson was stretched out on a blanket, his straw hat shielding his eyes, and his book forgotten in his lap. The faint hum of bees hard at work in our garden mingled with his soft snores. I was loath to wake him, but he wasn’t the brown as a nut skinny as a lath boy that he once was and his London-pale skin would burn soon. A drizzle of honey fresh from the hives on his lips and my tongue to lick it off should do the trick.
When I say I want to read the book before seeing the movie, I don’t want brownie points or bragging rights. I want to be able to read the book with my imagined world and idea of the characters without the movie’s influence at least once. After you see the movie there’s always some part of it that sticks in your head for a long time and you lose the enjoyment of making it up yourself.
