The Religion of Science Fiction by Frederick A. Kreuziger (book review).

Putting ‘religion’ and ‘Science Fiction’ in the title as in ‘The Religion Of Science Fiction’ will have many of you wondering what this book is covering. Me, too. Religion comes up a lot in Science Fiction in many different roles and would be the logical choice as for its discussion point. Er, no. Although written […]

God And The Folly Of Faith by Victor J. Stenger (book review).

Stenger is showing why faith is not enough and not just with Christianity but also Catholic and Muslim and, I suspect, any other religion you want to include in your remit.

Lamps that be freaking me out?

Here’s an interesting concept to challenge your perceptions about the blurry line between what’s art and just plain freaky. It’s Al-Hamad Design‘s human lamps. Because, apparently, in the Middle East you’re considered to gain great status by having a humanoid-shaped lamp in your sitting room, and this is a trend that’s been part of their […]

Sesame Street’s Count von Count sings the Views!

It seems that YouTube videos that get more than a billion views are like buses… you wait ages for one, and then, suddenly, along comes a couple. First it’s Psy and Gangnam style, now it’s Sesame Street’s Count von Count singing the Views (on YouTube). Ah, Count von Count. Still a better vampire love story […]

She’s a fox… at least, she is with a robot wagging tail.

Some people are looking to raise money for a robot project that will make any lady into a real fox… at least, a foxy tail called Tailly that wags when she gets excited or emotional. Sounds like money for old rope, but then, what do I know?
