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 first thought for these is applications for lower mobility people to interface with digital stuff and computers.

Holy shit I’m backing this.

Now you’re playing with power

In honor of National Library Week, some small thoughts on something really big in my life. 

To Patricia Marwell, Addie Perotta, Sharon Waskow, the Scarsdale Public Library, the Queens Public Library, and the New York Public Library: thank you! 

In 1969 the median salary for a male worker was $35,567 (in 2012 dollars). Today it is $33,904. So for 44 years, while wages for the top 10 percent have continued to climb, most Americans have been caught in a ”Great Stagnation,” bringing into question the whole purpose of the American capitalist economy. The notion that what benefited the establishment would benefit everyone, had been thoroughly discredited. The New Main Street Consensus (via wilwheaton)

This pamphlet was given to a student who visited the crisis pregnancy center in Northfield, MN. Add your name to our petition to call on the director of the CPC to stop distributing materials that mislead and lie about health care.
CPCs pose as legitimate reproductive health centers. They have a track record of outright lying to women and work to dissuade people from exercising the right to choose.

fuck these lying fuck-wits
fuck them hard.
fuck them with naval fleets.

"The obsessive centrists of the punditverse were abuzz today with praise for supposed centrist Democratic organization Third Way and their grumbling op-ed condemnation of Democratic liberal populism in abstract and “economic populists” like Sen. Elizabeth Warren in particular.
"But why would the Third Way, a very reasonable and centrist organization that just wants both parties to get along and agree to cut Social Security, Medicare, and other social programs be so very worked up about Elizabeth Warren, Wall Street reform, and the mere thought of breaking up large banks? Worked up enough to launch an apparently coordinated effort against those things?
"Oh. I see."
