f.lux™ software to make your life better

Just found this…

Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow? Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen? During the day, computer screens look good—they’re designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn’t be looking at the sun. f.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.” Just Get f.lux

The Stanford University Learning Locomotion Project

The Stanford University Learning Locomotion Project.


Legged robots, unlike wheeled robots, have the potential to access nearly all of the earth’s land mass, enabling robotic applications in areas where they are currently infeasible. However, the current control software for legged robots is quite limited, and does not let them realize this potential.

In the Learning Locomotion project, we seek to develop software that significantly advances the state of the art in robotic quadruped locomotion over rough terrain. To achieve this goal, we develop and apply novel control and machine learning algorithms.

Ball balancing robot on the way

“Engineering students at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich have created a ballbot called the Rezero. The Rezero balances on a single sphere and can move in any direction. Motors on the robot make adjustments 160 times per second in order to maintain balance. Rezero has three wheels that direct the sphere, allowing movement in any direction or movement around its own axis. Designers envision the Rezero will be used in parks, exhibitions, hospitals, and as a mode of transportation.”

Popular Science “25th Annual Best Of What’s New “

Since we inaugurated these awards a quarter of a century ago, the pace of innovation has quickened with every passing year. Twelve months is now a very long time. It takes something greater to be revolutionary than it did when we first saw HDTVs, electric cars, or even the iPhone. Now, more than ever, this is truly the Best of What’s New.”
