writes about a new proposal from technoartist, activist, and educator Natalie Jeremijenko
What if owners of Superfund sitde politicked their way out of responsibility, then sold or leased their property without removing unhealthy amounts of toxic waste? What if you could modify an ordinary robotic dog by adding an inexpensive, of-the-shelf gas sensor -- the kind used in residential and commercial/ industrial alarms for detecting toxicgases, breath alcohol checkers, automatic cooking controls for microwave ovens, air quality/ventilation control sytems for both homes and automobiles? What if you could release packs of these feral robotic dogs at former superfund sites whenever a school, housing development, market opens for business on or near the site? Welcome to feral robotics.

Although there will never be a consensus about the best way to make coffee, any coffee connoisseur will agree that controlling the grind of your beans and balancing water temperature are the keys to a tasty cup. Since your plastic coffee pot doesn’t really allow for that kind of customization, going back to the French […]
