Indoor gardening kits range from high tech to very simple. Your needs will vary based on your budget, the plants you want to grow, and the space you have available, but you’ll likely be able to pull something off, even if you have to hang your garden on the wall. We believe in you.

What should I grow?

Facebook reveals the future of VR headsets, and it’s more ‘CSI Miami’ than ‘Tron’

Facebook reveals the future of VR headsets, and it's more 'CSI Miami' than 'Tron'

Immersing yourself in virtual reality can feel like a sci-fi fantasy come true, but bulky, cumbersome VR headsets almost make it more trouble than it’s worth. There have been various attempts to slim down VR headsets, such as Dlodlo’s lightweight V One headset and Panasonic’s prototype goggles shown at CES 2020. Now Facebook has revealed its own glasses-like prototype headset with a display measuring 8.9 mm thick — about the same thickness as a smartphone.

In a new research paper entitled “Holographic Optics for Thin and Lightweight Virtual Reality,” Facebook Reality Labs researchers Andrew Maimone and Junren Wang have proposed a VR headset design that replaces the refractive lens with holographic optics and polarization-based optical folding. This allows the headset to be much lighter and more compact, like a strangely thick pair of retro sunglasses. Read more…

Twitter meme 'knows a spot' for some absolutely terrible dates

With the coronavirus pandemic keeping us home for the past few months, going on dates and visiting new places have become but distant, fond memories. A new Twitter meme is now softening the sting of social distancing, reminding restless singles that, even if we could go out, trusting your date to bring you somewhere spectacular usually isn’t as romantic as it sounds.

In the meme, Twitter users jokingly call people out for claiming to “know a spot,” the phrase suggesting they’re taking their date to an exciting surprise location for some private time together. However, instead of an intimate restaurant, secluded beach, or shady park, the inept Romeo takes their partner to a markedly less conventional date spot. Read more…
