Redditor Viking 187 posted this image of a stretch Delorean made from three deloreansworth of parts -- Marsandtherealgirl has context for it:
This was at the Delorean show last weekend!! I'm so bummed I missed it. I thought it was Saturday and Sunday, but it was only Saturday. My friend posted a photo of it with the doors shut. Here's a monster delorean. Also, I was told there haven't been this many deloreans in one place since the factory closed.
I showed up on Sunday but there wasn't much going on. Just a few random ones left. It was kind of neat though because the 1st place winner was still there and he was hanging out with his car waiting for his ride to the airport. He showed me his car and turned on all the lights and sounds for me. It was badass We both work comic cons so I even got to exchange cards with him. He was crazy nice. So even though I missed the show, I still got to have a cool little look at the winning car! Worth my time

Zero-knowledge proofs are one of the most important concepts in cryptography: they’re a way to “validate a computation on private data by allowing a prover to generate a cryptographic proof that asserts to the correctness of the computed output” — in other words, a way to prove that something is true without learning the details.
Retroworks’ $18 decoder rings don’t have much by way of cryptographic robustness (they compare disfavorably to the cipher-wheel wedding rings my wife and I wear!), but they’re not a bad way to introduce the littlies in your life to the idea of habitual secrecy. (via Red Ferret)

Although fully autonomous vehicles aren’t yet allowed on public streets, they are poised to dominate the roads in the not-too-distant future. But before that happens, Apple, Google, Uber, and other companies now investing in self-driving tech are going to need talented developers that can account for the dizzying array of factors at play when a […]
