Bay Area-based artivist collective Loud and Queer have developed a line of vibrating sex toys that are created to be gender inclusive.

The rush to put networked sensors and controllers into sex toys is grounded in foolish, convenient untruths, like the idea that the incredibly sensitive data generated by these systems can be anonymized and then analyzed for insights without exposing users to risk.

You can do all the pre-workout stretching in the world, but that doesn’t mean you’ll escape stiff muscles and nagging pain after a particularly grueling gym session.

Spring doesn’t officially start until March, but you might want to start your spring cleaning a little early in the office supply closet. You’re going to need the extra space.
