    Do you like badges? Of course you like badges. It’s conference season, and that means it’s also badge season. Well good news, Tindie now has a ‘badge’ category. Right now, it’s loaded up with creepy Krustys, hypnotoads, and fat Pikas. There’s also an amazing ⓐSpacehuhn chicken from [Dave]. Which reminds me: we need to talk about a thing, Spacehuhn. On the list of ‘weird emails we get in the tip line’ comes Rat Grease. Rat Grease is the solution to rodents chewing up cabling and wires. From what we can gather, it’s a mineral oil-based gel loaded up with capsaicin; it’s not a poison, and not a glue. (...) -- Hackaday Columns, Hackaday links, badges, dewalt, elon, Elon is God, merger, mergers and acquisitions, nxp, qualcomm, rats

    Anyone old enough to have driven before the GPS era probably wonders, as we do, how anyone ever found anything. Navigation back then meant outdated paper maps, long detours because of missed turns, and the far too frequent stops at dingy gas stations for the humiliation of asking for directions. It took forever sometimes, and though we got where we were going, it always seemed like there had to be a better way. Indeed there was, but instead of waiting for the future and a constellation of satellites to guide the way, some clever folks in the early 1970s had a go at dead reckoning systems (...) -- car hacks, Retrotechtacular, automobile, car, cassette, counter, dead reckoning, gps, navigation, odometer, retrotechtacular

    [Markus_p] has already finished one really successful 3D printed tracked robot build. Now he’s finished a second one using standard motors and incorporating what he learned from the first. The results are pretty impressive and you can see a video demo of the beast, below. Most of the robot is PLA, although there are some parts that use PETG and flex plastic. There is an infrared-capable camera up front and another regular camera on the rear. All the electronics are pretty much off the shelf modules like an FPV transmitter and an electronic controller for the motors. There’s a servo to tilt (...) -- 3d Printer hacks, Robots Hacks, 3d printing, FPV, robot, tank tread, track, tracked robot, tread

    The future is autonomous robots. Whether that means electric cars with rebranded adaptive cruise control, or delivery robots that are actually just remote control cars, the robots of the future will need to decide how to move, where to move, and be capable of tracking their own movement. This is the problem of odometry, or how far a robot has traveled. There are many ways to solve this problem, but GPS isn’t really accurate enough and putting encoders on wheels doesn’t account for slipping. What’s really needed for robotic odometry is multiple sensors, and for that we have [Pablo] and (...) -- HackadayPrize2018,

    Whenever you bring together dozens of different countries from around the globe, there's gonna be some cross-cultural confusion. And if you're South Korean coach Shin Tae-yong, you figure out how to work that to your advantage. SEE ALSO: World Cup opening game proved a little tricky for people with colour blindness In a press conference Sunday, Shin explained the unusual tactic he'd employed against spies from the Swedish team: He'd had his team members swap jersey numbers for the warmup games, in hopes that scouts would confuse the players for one another.  "It's very difficult for (...) -- World Cup, Culture, Sports

    According to Warner Bros., magic is not for everyone. As reported by the Associated Press on Saturday, the studio's powers-that-be are cracking down on unauthorized Harry Potter festivals, eliciting disappointment and frustration from fans.  Festivals are now prohibited from using any "names, places, or objects" associated with the series — which, obviously, rules out pretty much everything except broad concepts. One festival outside Philadelphia, for example, will take on a new, vague "wands and wizards" theme.

    Apple hasn't manufactured a new iPhone 3GS since the now-ancient smartphone was retired in 2012. But shoppers in South Korea will be able to pick one up before June is over.

    I am ashamed to admit that, as a student, I never paid that much attention to what anyone was saying over the PA system. But if my school had employed Regina Ballard, I might've.  The North Carolina school receptionist sang a truly beautiful rendition of "At Last" on Wednesday to celebrate her last day in the office before summer vacation. The school wasn't full of students — just a few employees and kids enrolled in camp — but those lucky enough to hear the performance enjoyed a real treat.

    The Carters bowled over an unsuspecting internet on Saturday afternoon when, without warning, they released a new joint album on Tidal. The 9-track "Love Is Everything" is wall-to-wall bangers, but even still, "Apeshit" stands out. Beyoncé teased the album's first video on Saturday with a snippet posted to Instagram. The 6-minute cut nofollows Bey and husband Jay Z on a dance-filled tour through the famed French art museum, the Louvre.

    When I was in elementary school, my parents thought it'd be a great idea to get me, an uncoordinated only child, involved in some Team Sports. One of those sports just so happened to be soccer. I attended practices, ran my little asthmatic lungs out, and poured my sweat and tears (no blood, come on, people) into the sport. Sadly, my cleats rarely touched dirt, and whenever they got anywhere near the ball, I committed one of the ultimate sports sins: I froze. Needless to say, I stopped playing soccer and never nofollowed the sport professionally. Because of these circumstances, I'm sorry (...) -- Sports, Movies, Soccer, Culture, World Cup

    Billie Lourd repped her mom in the best dang way when she threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Friday's match-up between baseball's San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers. The daughter of Carrie Fisher, who is a talented TV star in her own right, strode out onto the field with her hair formed into two distinctive buns. It wasn't an exact recreation of her mom's famed Princess Leia hair buns, but it was close enough to get the point across. I'm not crying, you're crying.

    “Which one do you want?” There were 100 quarts of strawberries at the farmer’s market yesterday. In answer to the farmer’s question, the person ahead of me in line spent a full minute looking them all over before picking one. The thing is: 90% of the strawberries in a quart are hidden from view. They’re beneath the top layer. There’s no strategy to tell which quart is better than the other, unless you (erroneously) believe that the top layer is an accurate indicator of what lies below.

    It’s time for another Cool Tools review. This time we’re looking at this Ultra-Flexible sandpaper by 3M. I got four sheets of this for around $7 on Amazon, which is kinda pricey for sandpaper but I’ll show you why it’s special. We’re all familiar with sandpaper. Sometimes, there’s just no substitution for sanding something by hand. These Ultra Flexible sheets aren’t paper at all. The grit is backed by a smooth plastic film that feels like packing tape, but stretchy. It is the limpest, floppiest sandpaper I’ve ever used. And honestly it weirded me out when I first tried it.

Barlow was also a semi-politician, pundit, writer, and a most remarkable story teller. He died recently but left an amazing fast-paced memoir behind, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

    The production capability available to the individual hacker today is really quite incredible. Even a low-end laser engraver can etch your PCBs, and it doesn’t take a top of the line 3D printer to knock out a nice looking enclosure. With the wide availability of these (relatively) cheap machines, the home builder can churn out a very impressive one-off device on a fairly meager budget.

    The biggest allure of 3D printing, to us at least, is the ability to make hyper-personalized objects that would otherwise fall through the cracks of our mass-market economy. Take, for instance, the Frozen Rat Kidney Shipping Container, or maybe some of the less bizarro applications in the US National Institute of Health’s 3D Print Exchange.

    deepin Linux is controversial because its developers are in China. You see, some people are suspicious of a Linux distribution that comes from that country.
