5 Awesome Earrings for Computer Geeks

I have this awesome professor who is one of the few female professors at my university in the Computer Engineering department. I went in to talk to her the other day and she was wearing the coolest ring ever! It had a circuit board with her initials. She said her friend gave it to her for her birthday. I was so in love with the idea of geeky jewelry so I went to the only place I could think of this existing: Etsy. 1. Circuit board earrings http://goo.gl/QwHMB1 2. Motherboard earrings http://goo.gl/n4hEOT 3. Floppy disk earrings http://goo.gl/cBnWsC 4. Transistor earrings http://goo.gl/30mI5s 5. Hello World earrings http://goo.gl/2FCsNh I'm actually thinking of making my own transistor earrings because I have some left over from my circuits class~~~ Now that I think about it...I should use my old electronics that I don't use anymore to make some cool stuff.

The transistor ones are my favorite, too!! If you manage to make some, let me know :) I bet that'd be kind of fun to try to do? great idea @csgeek
@onesmile it should be fun! I just need to go to a craft store and buy materials! :)

Man Builds A Robot Scarlett Johansson Because, Obviously.
Here's some breaking news in the realm of Earth's impending robot takeover. It seems that one Hong Kong robotics enthusiast has fulfilled his 'childhood dream' of designing a robot and his (probable) adult dream of being able to hit on Scarlett Johansson by creating Mark 1, his very first humanoid robot. Okay, so Ricky Ma, the man in question, will not flat-out admit that Mark 1 was designed to look like Scarlett Johansson, but he does say that he was 'inspired by a Hollywood actress' which is probably dodgy robotics dude speak for 'I made a Robo-ScarJo.' The entire project cost Ma roughly $51,000 to create the robot, who was made mostly of 3D-printed plastics, silicone, and various hardware. Mark 1 has the ability to talk, walk, and make natural facial expressions - including a smirk when you tell her she's pretty. Because, of course, he programmed her that way. Yo, Ricky, you might want to cool off on hitting on Artificial Life ScarJo. (We've all seen 'Her'. We know how that'll end.) But anyway... Ma intends to sell the prototype to a major investor and help develop more and more versions of Mark 1, a robot he sees as extremely useful as our technology capabilities only continue to evolve. Could you imagine a fleet of Robo-ScarJos built to help run our banks, medical offices, or even retail centers? How do you think Scarlett feels about this? Let me know what YOU think about Ricky Ma and his Robot Johansson below. And for more strange tech news, follow my Weird Science collection!
