SCIENCE IS SO COOL LIKE
"We are like dwarfs sitting on the shoulders of giants. We see more, and things that are more distant, than they did, not because our sight is superior or because we are taller than they, but because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours."

This tumblr's for all the great men and women of science for whom we owe our current understanding of the natural world; their achievements, their failures, and even their quirks, we celebrate them all.

For Science. For Inquiry. For Humanity.

In 2020, We might be wearing our computers on our wrists.
SONY imagines that in the near future, computers can be worn like a  bracelet. This allows us to carry our information along with us with  even more relative ease.
Our present need for internet connectivity is so profound that  secondary  devices like the Nextep Computer are bound to happen.   Features such as a  holographic projector screen, pull-out extra  keyboard panels and  social networking compatibility, make the concept  plausible.

Awhile ago, I was talking to someone about something like this being in our future, that we will have things like this in our lifetime. And it is absolutely amazing that technology has improved so far. I don’t know about you guys, but this is making me very excited.

A new breakthrough…

HOT DAMN THAT IS COOL
