blinkybugs

Blinkybugs are small, simple, electromechanical bugs that respond to stimulus such as movement, vibrations, or air currents. They are constructed by hand from LEDs, wire, and other miscellaneous electronic bits, and are powered by a single coin-cell battery. When "stimulated," blinkybugs blink in interesting rhythmic patterns, making them seem alive. Yet at the same time they are incredibly simple, and can be understood after just a few seconds of observation. Each blinkybug is made by hand, and each is unique.

I don't see any current limiting resistors.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
