The glasses come with a DIY kit that help you program the 174 LED lights, and a micro SD card that allow the glasses to play graphics and videos. The creators are already working on accompanying tutorials that will guide yo…

There are also more than 200,000 fine artists working in the U.S., according to recent research by the National Endowment for the Arts.
But while fine art is big business, there is often a wide chasm between the creative process that makes a great artist or a sophisticated gallery owner, and the marketing process that drives branding and sales.
"For the majority of artists, success will ultimately come down to…

Former Apple sales executive David Sobotta is publishing a book about the two decades he spent at the company, and it looks like Apple CEO Tim Cook won't like the reviews.
In The Pomme Company, Sobotta writes Apple employees generally have a fear of being wrong.
"You don't make mistakes at Apple and get a second chance. That often hinders decision-making and creates a lot of passive-aggressiveness between teams that should be cooperating," Sobotta tells tech blog ReadWrite.
Cook's most recent decision to be questioned was the firing of high ranking execs like Scott Forstall. Sobotta said he wasn't surprised by the news.

Earlier this week 22-year-old California woman Denise Helms made some disastrous social media choices after President Barack Obama won re-election.
Helms wrote on Facebook: "Another 4 years of this [N-word]. Maybe he will get assassinated this term."
The racist comment immediately went viral and Helms was criticized for her racism and assassination talk. Since then, Helms lost her job at Cold Stone Creamery after her employer found out about her comments and the public reaction to them.
But it seems Helms has yet to understand the severity of the situation.
"I didn't think it would be that big of a…

This bot from iRobot does one of fall's most unpleasant around-the-home tasks: cleaning the leaf-littered gutters. The Looj 330 is a one-pound bot that'll do all your dirty work.
You'll still need a latter for gutter cleaning, but the hard work is done by the bot. The Looj uses a rubber augur and scrappers to lift debris from the gutters and throw it on the ground. Just place it in the gutter and hit the "Auto Clean" button. You can drive it from a wireless remote from the ground and bag the debris as it drops it. And the remote works from 50-100 feet away so you can multitask.
