Here at Hackaday we’re suckers for old abandoned technologies, the more obscure the better. The history of the telephone has plenty to capture our attention, and it’s from that arena that something recently floated past our timeline. [IanVisits] reports a sighting of a Rabbit in a London Underground station. The bunny in question definitely isn’t hopping though, it’s been dead for more than three decades. It’s a base station for a failed digital mobile phone system.
We’ve had a look in the past at CT2, the system this Rabbit base station once formed part of. It was an attempt to make an inexpensive phone system by having the handsets work with fixed base stations rather than move from cell to cell....

Whomane, c’est un peu le rêve de tout maker qui se respecte : un appareil portatif bourré d’IA et de capteurs, le tout en mode open source pour pouvoir bidouiller et créer ses propres applications. La vision derrière ce projet, c’est de rendre l’IA embarquée accessible à tous, que ce soit pour l’utiliser ou pour développer dessus.

Saviez-vous que macOS prenait en charge les cartes Ethernet à 25 Gb/s et même 40 Gb/s ? Depuis un moment maintenant, macOS (et iPadOS) intègrent en effet un DEXT (une extension DriverKit) pour les cartes Mellanox ConnectX et il est assez simple d’en intégrer une en interne (dans un Mac Pro) ou en Thunderbolt. Le fonctionnement est le même qu’avec les cartes 10 Gb/s Intel : il y a un pilote standardisé pour les cartes de la famille ConnectX, à partir des cartes ConnectX-4. Comme les Mac n’ont pas de PCI-Express (sauf les Mac Pro), il faut évidemment un boîtier Thunderbolt qui accepte les cartes d’extension (on peut bidouiller avec un boîtier prévu pour un SSD externe). La norme permet des...

If you need to make round things, you probably need a lathe. Can you build one as nice as one you can buy? Probably not. But can you build one that will work and allow you to do more things than having no lathe at all? [Mikeandmertle] say absolutely! You can see the contraption in operation in the video below.
The build is decidedly functional-looking and only requires a few parts. Most of the components are unremarkable, save for a threaded bar, a metal pipe, some bearings, and a few threaded inserts. Well, there’s also a drill chuck and two lathe centers. Those don’t have to be very expensive, but they may well be the bulk of what you have to spend to make this project. The optional drilling of the...

What better way to learn to use Git than a gamified interface that visualizes every change? That’s the idea behind Oh My Git! which aims to teach players all about the popular version control system that underpins so many modern software projects.

Sometimes the downside to a tool being so ubiquitous is that it tends to be taken for granted that everyone already knows how to use it, and those starting entirely from scratch can be left unsure where to begin.

Workholding is generally not a problem on a big CNC plasma cutter.; gravity does a pretty good job of keeping heavy sheet steel in place on the bed. But what if your CNC table isn’t a table? The answer: magnets — lots of magnets.
The backstory on this is a bit involved, but the condensed version is that [Lucas] needed a CNC plasma cutter big enough to cut full-sized sheets of steel, but lacked the floor space in his shop for such a beast. His solution was to build a custom CNC machine that stands more or less vertically, allowing him to cut full sheets in a mere fraction of the floor space. It’s a fantastic idea, one that he put a lot of effort into, but it’s not without its problems. Chief among them...

Tom Hiddleston discussed his 14-year journey as Loki on a recent Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance, during which Kimmel asked if it’s really the last we’re seeing of the iconic Marvel anti-hero. Hiddleston has said goodbye to Loki before with deaths that didn’t quite stick—including Avengers: Infinity War, which turned out to be a variant death. But the Avengers-era Loki who made a break for it in Avengers: Endgame ended up being the Loki we followed in the Loki series. So, is this the end for Loki? “I don’t...

Photo by Edie Leong for The Washington Post via Getty Images Tesla is reducing the subscription fee for its Full Self-Driving (FSD) driver-assist software in a reflection of the company’s continuing financial hardships. The company slashed the price to $99 / month, down from $199 where it has been since at least 2021. Tesla announced the price adjustment in a post on X, in which it described the Level 2 driver-assist system as “FSD (Supervised)” — a name tweak that’s meant to convey the fact that drivers are required to pay attention to the road and stand ready to take control of the vehicle. (The company has been criticized for failing to include proper driver monitoring and other protections...

The Pokémon Company Japanese police arrested a man after finding evidence that he illegally tampered with save data for the Nintendo Switch games Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, which he used to create custom characters that he sold on an online gaming marketplace.

Yamakawa, who used an online tool to modify the game’s save data, was arrested under suspicion of violating a Japanese law known as the Unfair Competition Prevention Act.

Although she has lived abroad most of her life, Gaza is where journalist and activist Laila El-Haddad calls home. Growing up, and as an adult, she would visit Gaza to spend time with her extended family. She also spent years reporting on the region for Al-Jazeera. During that time, she launched the blog Gaza Mom , which she eventually turned into a book of the same name. In 2012, she co-wrote the cookbook The Gaza Kitchen , which was republished a few years ago in an updated third edition. More recently, El-Haddad wrote an essay for Saveur — "A Cuisine Under Siege" — about keeping her family's recipes alive, as well as an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times about trying to find solace during Ramadan.

Growing up in San Francisco, Toriano Gordon always had big dreams. He was either going to be a big-time rapper or a famous chef. But life got in the way. After a stint studying at Le Cordon Bleu, he ended up on the streets, where he fell into drugs and addiction, and experienced a brush with death. As he put his life back together, he and his wife decided to try veganism, even though he yearned to open a barbecue restaurant. That's how he launched Vegan Mob , initially selling plates from his car. "Once I knew that I was going to start selling the food, something clicked," Gordon says. His first dish? Calamari made with hearts of palm and seaweed from a recipe he found on YouTube. He graduated to gumbo, using...

Intrigued by green almonds? Get them as soon as you can. This hyper-seasonal California ingredient only shows up at farmers markets for a few weeks each spring. What exactly are they? Green almonds are drupes and are closely related to apricots and peaches. Like those stone fruits, they'll develop a pit but when it comes to almonds, we eat the kernel or seed. With peaches and apricots, we eat their sweet flesh. "At this point, when they're pretty young, you can eat the whole thing," says Justin Siemens of Fat Uncle Farms in Wasco. "Over the next few weeks, they'll develop and dry out, and you won't be able to eat the whole thing but you can still crack them open and eat the kernel." They're soft, fuzzy, and...
