Waiting for Betelgeuse to go Supernova>A giant star is acting strange, and astronomers are buzzing
Magnetohyrdodynamic PropulsionTests have been done in the 60s.
Deep Web Exploration/Raid?See the title. We should totally use this newly revived board to spark interest in the deep web, alternative tech, etc., just like what had happened around a year ago with archiving and DIY. At work right now but I'm gonna be downloading TOR onto this laptop and spending a bit exploring.
Genetically Modified Horse Waifus for Domestic OwnershipSince this is the closest thing to a /sci/ board that we have, and biopunk is related to cyberpunk I figured I would post this here. This thread is all about genetically modified horse waifus for domestic ownership. What would be the major technological challenges? How close is current technology? What would you want in your bio-engineered waifu?
Anon, do you know about Exif photo data?Exif data is meta data that is saved every time you take a photo. Be it with regular cameras or smartphone cameras. It may work with web cam too but I never tried it before so I don't know.
/TAD/ Terry A. DavisHow can you have /cyb/ without an official Terry Davis thread, that's sacrilegious. Terry lives on,and is currently in a "Lithuanian" right now.
First picture of a black hole>Astronomers on Wednesday unveiled the first photo of a black hole, one of the star-devouring monsters scattered across the Universe and obscured by impenetrable shields of gravity.
Google suspends Android support for Huawei>Google's decision to suspend Huawei's use of some parts of the Android operating system will send shockwaves through the smartphone market. Huawei is the second biggest smartphone maker but relies on the Android operating system, which is effectively run by Google, as the engine of its devices. Google will block Huawei's use of Android updates, apart from those made available in the open-source version of the operating system, according to Reuters.
Intel ZombieLoad flaw forces OS patches with up to 40% performance hits>When security researchers disclosed a series of major vulnerabilities impacting Intel processors back in January 2018, it was clear that “Meltdown” and “Spectre” were indeed serious — and wouldn’t be the only exploits of multi-threading chips. Now a new Intel chip vulnerability nicknamed “ZombieLoad” has been revealed to the public, and though it’s already being patched by three major operating system makers, there’s some bad news: full protection could reduce your CPU’s performance by up to 40%.
Decoding thoughts into speech, life changing researchScientists have found a way to transform brain signals into spoken words and sentences, providing new hope to those who have lost their speech due to stroke, throat cancer, ALS or Parkinson’s disease.
Retro-Futurist Imagery ThreadLet's get a thread going for pre-cyberpunk depictions of the future. It seems like sometime after the cultural revolution of the 60s and 70s it became trendy in sci-fi to imagine grim dystopian end-of-the-world scenarios. While some of these dystopian settings can be interesting or at least aesthetically cool, I tend to prefer more positive imaginings of the future, from a time when Western civilization saw itself as a force for good in the world, before cultural Marxism taught us to see ourselves as a menace that needs to be deconstructed and subdued.
Opportunity Mars rover is probably dead after 15-year mission>Opportunity is already buried – all that’s left is to say goodbye. The ageing Mars rover became mired in a colossal dust storm in June 2018, and operators haven’t been able to reach it since then. NASA is expected to announce later today that Opportunity’s mission is officially over.
Kroger and the Future of ShoppingWelcome to the future of shopping, where you pay for your products with not just money, but your behavioral data. Kroger is pushing new tech to try and beat Amazon out in the grocery field, tech that will start to implement population conditioning and mind control. Sound ludicrous? Let's go over the facts.
Climate EngineeringClimate change is reaching the point of no return and we aren't going to stop using fossil fuels. Should we start using technologies like genetically modified corals and iron fertilization (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_fertilization) to mitigate the damage caused by climate change?
Robowaifu ThreadThis thread is all about robo horse waifus. What would be the major technological challenges? How close is current technology? What would you want in your robowaifu?
Potential Applications of Marbled Crayfish>Marbled crayfish are the only known decapod crustaceans to reproduce only by parthenogenesis. All individuals are female, and the offspring are genetically identical to the parent. Marbled crayfish are triploid animals, which may be the main reason for their parthenogenetic reproduction. Marbled crayfish are thus a model for the rapid generation of species.
Drawing Yesterday's Tomorrowhey /cyb/ I wanted to emulate an artstyle but I can't find a lot of good resources on it, I like thee way robots looked in old school sci-fi like 50s and 60s and so on. Pics related. Do you know where I can find good resources for learning to draw robots like this, or at least a large collection of reference material?

Artificial wombswhen will this become a reality? and how will it affect the world?
This is Activating my Almonds Pretty HardA bit of backstory to begin: earlier today, I got into a conversation about quantum mechanics, more specifically the part of it where the mere act of observing particles can change their properties or behavior. That alone is a confusing concept, but now let me ask you all a question.
Ready Player OneHave you read this, If not I would highly recommend it, at the end it was said that it was looking to become a movie.

Friendly reminder on free IT servicesFriendly reminded that almost nothing in the world comes for free. If it does, its meant to persuade you to buy more, as an advertisement, as a means to control market, to provide harmful/misleading services to clients intentionally, to mine your data, etc.
Will AR2673 save us from the technological nightmare?>What a difference a day can make. On Saturday, Sept. 2nd, sunspot AR2673 was an unremarkable speck largely ignored by forecasters. On Sunday, Sept. 3rd, it underwent a furious transformation.
Biotech RevoltionBiotechnology is advancing at a rapid pace and could soon usher in a new industrial and medical revolution. With promises of on demand organs, better treatments for disease and cancer, designer babies, cognitive enhancement, increased longevity, greener and safer industrial processes, more productive crops and many others biotech could completely change our society. How do you think technology like CRISPR, artificial wombs, electrical brain stimulation, organ printing, and other advances in biotechnology will effect society, /mlpol/?
