But just as impressive as Gandy’s drawing machines is this timelapse of one in action that makes it appear to draw faster than it actually moves.

Curl Up With This Chill-Ass Version of Twitter That a Swiss Designer Made Curl Up With This Chill-Ass Version of Twitter That a Swiss Designer Made

Zurich-based designer Florian Schulz has reimagined Twitter not as a mind-numbing torrent of breaking news, gifs, and nazis, but as something else he calls a “social network.” We’re not too sure about this “social network” idea, but the results are pretty intriguing, at least in an experimental way.

Someone Created a MagSafe Connector For the Rest of the Plugs In Your Home Someone Created a MagSafe Connector For the Rest of the Plugs In Your Home

As much as USB-C is a vast improvement over the USB connectors of yesteryear, we’re still bummed that it replaced the MagSafe connector on the recent generation of Apple’s MacBooks. We’re not getting any less clumsy, but these magnetic breakaway plug adapters look like they could ease the fear of tripping over our…

A Textbook That Turns Into a Lifesize Paper Skeleton Should be Standard at Med Schools A Textbook That Turns Into a Lifesize Paper Skeleton Should be Standard at Med Schools

Human anatomy is something better learned by studying detailed models, or actual people. Mastering the ins and outs of the human body isn’t the easiest thing to learn from a textbook, although once you hit the last page of Taschen’s latest tome, you’ll have a pretty solid understanding of the human skeleton, having…

iPhone X Damage Report: Two Months Later iPhone X Damage Report: Two Months Later

Steve Jobs was a notorious case-hater. He once looked at Wired’s Steven Levy with disgust when the journalist pulled out an iPod with a case on it. “I think stainless steel looks beautiful when it wears,” Jobs said. For my own reasons, I’ve never used a case on my iPhone. The glass on my $1,200 iPhone X, however, does…

A New Campaign Wants to Fight Hostile Urban Design With Instagram

If you’ve even set foot in a big city, it’s almost definitely happened to you. Your feet are aching and you want to take a seat for just five minutes—maybe check your phone or finish off your coffee. But the only thing around are window sills with huge spikes jutting out of them, or a “leaning” bench that doesn’t take…

Update Your Firefox Now: Mozilla Just Patched a ‘Critical’ Security Flaw Update Your Firefox Now: Mozilla Just Patched a ‘Critical’ Security Flaw

Donald Trump's Fake News Awards Website Looks Like Shit, Immediately Crashed Donald Trump's Fake News Awards Website Looks Like Shit, Immediately Crashed

On Wednesday night, President Donald J. Trump finally made good on a promise, sort of—rolling out the media-bashing “Fake News Awards” he originally touted for January 8th and then pushed back to January 17th as it became clear no one, let alone him, had actually put any effort into executing the idea.

I'd Actually Consider Going to a Spin Class If I Could Ride Schwinn's Retro-Styled Exercise Bikes I'd Actually Consider Going to a Spin Class If I Could Ride Schwinn's Retro-Styled Exercise Bikes

Pour through an old album of your parents (or grandparents) and you’ll probably find a photo of them riding a classic Schwinn bike that looks like it was designed by an aerodynamics-obsessed Oldsmobile engineer. Schwinn has long since updated its bike designs, but the company pays homage to its past with an indoor…

We're Going to Write More About Design We're Going to Write More About Design

We’ve always written about design at Gizmodo, usually in the context of how gadgets look and work. Over the last fifteen years, we’ve gradually expanded our coverage to include the many ways technology is transforming almost everything in the world, and it makes sense for us to take a broader view of design as well.

Google Is Taking the Android Out of Android Pay Google Is Taking the Android Out of Android Pay

If you use Google’s products, there’s a good chance the company already has a copy your credit card details stored somewhere—in your Chrome browser’s autofill settings, gathering dust in a Google Wallet, or inside Android Pay. But soon, “over the coming weeks,” Google says it will merge the various ways it gobbles up…

Are you having a hard time justifying the cost of Apple’s new $5,000+ iMac Pro? If you’re willing to part with the computer’s matching Space Gray-colored keyboard, mouse, and trackpad, which are only available with the desktop, you could sell them on eBay for obscene amounts and make some of your investment back.

The Video Where a Woman Cooks With Her Mouth: Some Questions and Answers The Video Where a Woman Cooks With Her Mouth: Some Questions and Answers

It’s not what you think. The YouTube video “Cooking With Your Mouth | Christmas Turkey” sounds like some crazy science experiment where some brave chef heats up ingredients in her cheeks and then swallows them. In fact, it’s much more disgusting than that. I can’t stop watching it, but I also have some questions.

Apple Wants to Patent a Voice Assistant That Knows When to Whisper Back Apple Wants to Patent a Voice Assistant That Knows When to Whisper Back

Sometimes it feels like we’re inching closer to a future like the movie Her, where humans spend their time wandering around, constantly chatting to their own personal AI assistants.

How to Use the Magic Mouse as Apple (Presumably) Intended How to Use the Magic Mouse as Apple (Presumably) Intended

For many years, I’ve found it pretty easy to just ignore the Magic Mouse—whose sleek design is strangely missing a few parts that Apple, an ergonomically-minded company, must’ve meant to include to support a user’s palm, thumb, and pinky finger. But now that I’m working at a real desk inside a real office at a company…

Here's How They Made Hela's Thor: Ragnarok Headdress Here's How They Made Hela's Thor: Ragnarok Headdress

Hela’s headdress from Thor: Ragnarok is the best thing to happen in film in 2017. It should win an Oscar. That headdress should be inducted into the Screenwriter’s Guild. It’s the queer icon of a queer icon.
