Reading through comments on social media is often infuriating due to the various cognitive biases that allow people to believe obviously false claims. Since gamification has been used to raise awareness of other topics, why not cognitives biases?
Cookie recipes never seem to make as many cookies the recipe claims, so how big (or small, rather) must a cookie be in order to get the recipe-expected number of cookies?
After the success of the Mini Siphon Mk I, followed by the surprising failures of the full scale Beer Siphon Mk III, several changes have been made to the design to make it less fragile, less leaky, and hopefully just work. But would it produce a Black and Tan, or just more heartbreak?
After the successful test of a miniature siphon for making layered shots, it was time to try a full sized siphon for making a Black and Tan. But will it work?
The Black and Tan (or Half and Half in some countries) is a fascinating beverage, and an excellent demonstration of density stratification in fluids. Recently we have started to explore the possibility of using 3D printing to create a device that can make a Black and Tan by displacing a less dense beer with a denser one using a siphon rather than the traditional method of carefully pouring the less dense beer on top of the denser beer.
Today we are proud to announce the release of the hyper-dimensional ray-tracer, ndt. Have you ever wondered what four, five, or even 100-dimensional space would look like if you happened to find yourself in it. Well, wonder no longer! Now you can see for yourself what it would be like to visit such strange higher dimensional spaces.
Having recently been March 17th, which is essentially Irish-beer awareness day, we decided to test if we could tell the difference between Guinness draught in the can (with a widget) and in a bottle (nitrogenated, but without a widget).
