You’ll never convince us there’s a better racing game out there than Super Mario Kart for the Super Nintendo. Hours and hours of our childhoods were spent racing those pixelated courses in our parents’ basements, but with the SNES only supporting four players, our races were never as intense as this epic 101-player…
It appears that the standard tools used to identify chaotic signatures might be missing lots of hidden chaos — especially in systems that seem like they’re not chaotic at all.
Anarchy. That's what it's like to drive on the streets of Ethiopia. There are no traffic lights, no painted lanes, no rules on who has the right of way, no fear of hitting the car in front of you, and basically no driver has any idea what the other driver is going to do until they do it. It's chaos and probably…
For anyone who has ever had their ass handed to them in a game of pool, take comfort knowing that in the end, physics beats everything. A physicist has calculated how many collisions it takes for billiards to be impossible without a supercomputer. It's less than you think!
Here are two things you should do immediately. One: watch this. It's a jaw-dropping video of starlings in flight that will straight up give you chills. The swirling cloud of birds is called a "murmuration," and it's just one example of how animals in very large groups can engage in remarkably coordinated collective…
We've all read Jurassic Park, so we all know how patterns can emerge from a jumble of chaos. Out of a seemingly random assortment of stuff, orderly structures appear. But what if, instead of killer dinosaurs, they were adorable pictures of cats?
Check out this jaw-dropping video of a natural phenomenon known as a "murmuration." The collective noun is used to describe vast numbers of starlings as they whirl through the air like billowing clouds of black, biological smoke.
We are quickly perfecting devices that can see behind walls. The latest incarnation of this superspy tech uses radio waves and simulated chaos to pinpoint objects that can't be seen.
Civilization, goes an old maxim, is four meals away from barbarism – once the food deliveries stop, so does law and order. That could mean trouble for the political uprising in Egypt. It may also be what triggered it.
Yesterday, one of Apple's Beijing locations lifted the two-per-customer iPhone 4 limit. The result: chaos, confusion, and the temporary shutdown of the store. Sounds like the scalpers did pretty well for themselves, though.
The Shattered Clock only shows the hour that the time currently is on, every other number is broken apart. It looks like chaos but the idea is to find what's important above the mess. Above is 3:55. Well, I think.
