We’ve got another week under our belt, and this weekend is Father’s Day. So, for all you dads out there, were going to take a look at some vintage automobile audio devices as well as tech gifts from the future. But first, let’s take a look at the latest headlines. Risk control hierarchy is a relatively new method to help promote better electrical safety in the workplace. While one computer is playing Jeopardy, another one has created the first self-replicating mathematical creature. Apparently whoever developed this has seen my worst calculus nightmares. Wrapping up the news, the NREL has developed new technology to make swamp coolers more energy efficient.
Now we get to the good stuff. First, take a look at eight father’s day tech gifts from the future, as well as three from our sister blog, Digigasms. Then we go back in time to see some of the vintage 1950s car audio systems. Yeah, didn’t know they had those back then, right? And to close out the week, we give you a true sign of water quality. While my own city publishes a annual report, these folks have visual cues as to just how bad their water really is. That’s a wrap for today. Enjoy the links and your Father’s Day weekend!
