Why Get Dressed When There Are Software Pants?

1 Share

With so many of us working from home over the last two years, it’s really become apparent that people generally dislike sitting all day with pants on. Until such a utopian time when all clothing is considered unisex, and just as many men as women are kicking it in loose, flowing skirts and dresses, you may want to remember to actually wear something on your lower half, uncomfortable though pants may be. But there is another way — you could build [Everything Is Hacked]’s pants filter and continue to be a chaos agent. Check out the video after the break.

These pants go as wide as you please.

That’s right, whether you forego or just forget to dress yourself below the equator, the pants filter has you covered. It works like you might expect — machine learning tracks body landmarks and posture to figure out where your NSFW region is and keep it under wraps.

By default, it blurs everything below the belt, or you can draw on pants if you’re inclined to be in revealing tighty-whities and prefer more coverage. You can adjust the width of the pants to cover the covid-19 you may have put on since 2020, and even change the pants to match your shirt.

We love that [Everything Is Hacked] had the um, gumption to test the pants filter in public at what appears to be a local taco joint. After the first few rounds of weird looks, he switched to a pants moustache to save face.

Want to add even more fun to those boring video calls? Try connecting up some vintage hardware, or install a pull chain to end those sessions with a gesture that won’t get you fired.

Ihr ahnt ja nicht, was bei der Analyse herausgekommen ist, ob Amazon Echo euch doch die ganze Zeit abhört und das für Werbe-Targeting nutzt!
Our results show that Amazon and third parties (including advertising and tracking services) collect smart speaker interaction data; where Amazon shares it with as many as 41 advertising partners. We find that Amazon processes voice data to infer user interests and uses it to serve targeted ads on-platform (Echo devices) as well as off-platform (web). Smart speaker interaction leads to as much as 30X higher ad bids from advertisers. Finally, we find that Amazon's and skills' operational practices are often inconsistent with their privacy policies

Vintage Metal Grocery List

1 Share

Before the rise of smartphones, people had their own neat little ways to take note of the supplies they needed to replenish their groceries. 

Note-taking is a staple already, of course– but some actually use a grocery list out of metal! Now, how does that work if it can’t be erased? 

Well, the mechanism has an etching of various produce items and other household items on it. Bendable metal tabs are next to each engraving, where one can bend them the other way if they run out of that particular item. 

This is cool, but this list isn’t customizable at all. It’s cute and cool, sure, but I think I prefer taking down my grocery list on my phone!
