Tech Stuff 74

This is a sort of search and discover newsletter of my findings of things that may relate to technology in one way or another. It might be the latest gosh wow tech, it might be something as old of humanity. It might relate to science large or small. It might be art for art’s sake. Or somebody just doing something funky. Because I think that technology is just the representation of human creativity and breaking boundaries. So I’m certainly not going to place boundaries here except that it won’t be the same old, same old. So almost no gadgets or yacking about the latest phone or whatever, unless of course it involves taking them apart or destroying them in unusual ways. Or putting them to work in imaginative ways that most people won’t even think of. So buckle up, it’s going to be a fun ride.
This week: lathe work, Lego Porsche crash test, Human bombs dropped from a B17 and more.

Wonderful lathe work.

      The great war has been doing a great job. I suspect that museum was a hard shoot to do.

        When you see what they do to film things, yeah. They do a very good job with the on-site stuff.
