DailyDirt: Science With Lego

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

People do all sorts of creative stuff with Lego -- even though Lego hasn't always been cool about people using Lego or Lego-like bricks in various ways. But when Lego interconnecting block enthusiasts are allowed to do anything they want to do, sometimes science benefits. Here are just a few cool Lego-based science links for folks who aren't ready to put away their childhood toys. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    An Open (can of) Worms...

    Now they are emulating a worm's brain... What next? A lizard... a rabbit... a rat... a dog... a monkey... a human?

    Technological process is like a bad drug addiction pattern, where you start with nice soft drugs then can easily go through an escalation that makes you into a crack addict, where you've lost near-total control of yourself, a zombie.

    You gotta control it, or it runs out of control. Top scientists now have warned us about the danger of AI, so what are these idiots here doing? That's what the Hippocratic Oath was about... now the mad scientists like those of the Open Project just thrown in the trash bin, like the rest of their ethics, their consciousness, their sense of scientific accountability.

    Stupid idiots doing this "cool" project don't realize how they contribute to sign a death warrant for the whole of mankind... or just building The Matrix.
