Beautiful iPhone 6 renders based on the latest leaks and rumors | BGR

According to the latest reports, we’re just over a month out from the official unveiling of the iPhone 6 on September 9th. Although we’ve seen a few leaked hardware components from Apple’s next flagship phone, the actual device is still a mystery, but the latest 3D concept images from designer Martin Hajek might be the closest we get to laying our eyes on the iPhone 6 before next month.FROM EARLIER: Ultra-thin iPhone 6 design posing technical difficulties to component makersYou might remember Hajek from the from the incredible renders we shared back in April. Not only are the designs excruciatingly accurate based on the latest leaks and rumors, Hajek has even taken the time to tear the device down from the inside out, showing off both the external view of the phone and the internal components which will be crammed into the thinner package that is the iPhone 6.There have been plenty of incredible renders from concept designers over the past several months, but this might be the most comprehensive compilation yet.If you’d like to peruse the 3D model on your own computer, you can purchase Hajek’s concept on TurboSquid for $100. Check out a few images of the model below, then click on the source link to see the rest.

RCA graduate develops an artificial leaf that’s capable of producing oxygen – Newlaunches

Human beings have long since been looking up at space, wondering when mankind will finally be technologically-advanced enough to colonize space. While staring heavenwards recently, we stumbled across this jaw-dropping development by RCA graduate Julian Melchiorri. A synthetically developed leaf, this concept called the Silk Leaf Project, is capable of absorbing water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen, just the way a real plant does! Quoting Melchiorri, “NASA is researching different ways to produce oxygen for long-distance space journeys to let us live in space. This material could allow us t0 explore space much further than we can now.”

SysAdmin Day | System Administrator Appreciation Day


Your network is secure, your computer is up and running, and your printer is jam-free. Why? Because you’ve got an awesome sysadmin or maybe a whole IT department keeping your business up and running. So say IT loud; say IT proud …

SysAdmin Day | System Administrator Appreciation Day

Happy SysAdmin Day!

Wait… what exactly is SysAdmin Day? Oh, it’s only the single greatest 24 hours on the planet… and pretty much the most important holiday of the year. It’s also the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to the heroic men and women who, come rain or shine, prevent disasters, keep IT secure and put out tech fires left and right.

At this point, you may be thinking, “Great. I get it. My sysadmin is a rock star. But now what?” Glad you asked! Proper observation of SysAdmin Day includes but is not limited to:

  • Cake & Ice cream
  • Pizza
  • Cards
  • Gifts
  • Words of gratitude
  • Custom t-shirts celebrating the epic greatness of your SysAdmin
  • Balloons
  • Streamers
  • Confetti
  • Show your appreciation

Friday, July 25, 2014, is the 15th annual System Administrator Appreciation Day. On this special international day, give your System Administrator something that shows that you truly appreciate their hard work and dedication. All day Friday, 24 hours, your own local time-zone.

Let’s face it, System Administrators get no respect 364 days a year. This is the day that all fellow System Administrators across the globe, will be showered with expensive sports cars and large piles of cash in appreciation of their diligent work. But seriously, we are asking for a nice token gift and some public acknowledgement. It’s the least you could do.

Consider all the daunting tasks and long hours weekends too. Let’s be honest, sometimes we don’t know our System Administrators as well as they know us. Remember this is one day to recognize your System Administrator for their workplace contributions and to promote professional excellence. Thank them for all the things they do for you and your business.

See how Elon Musk is building the ‘Iron Man’ lab with tech you can buy | The Verge

The workspace of the future is in Elon Musk’s lab. Using a variety of virtual reality and gesture-sensing tools, Musk has set up a system that allows himself and his engineers to design and manipulate models of rocket parts using just their hands. He’s compared it to the Iron Man laboratory, and in many ways, it looks like just that.But you won’t need the technological expertise of Tony Stark in order to make one: Musk employs a Leap Motion Controller, an Oculus Rift, and a projector — among other common tools — in order to make the setup work. Not all of those are necessarily being used at once though. Musk says that he began with the Leap Motion, and then expanded to more advanced setups, such as one that involved projecting 3D mockups onto a translucent pane of glass.
