This Week in Geekdom

Hi everyone; hope you're all having a good weekend so far and that 2015 is off to a great start for you. We're inching back towards normalcy here after the holidays and my stubborn head cold so, barring unforeseen crazy, we'll be 100% back on our standard publication schedule starting today. Bonus: if you didn't see it go live on Friday, Elder Gias is running another giveaway! Ok, are you back from checking out the contest? Let's get down to the Week in Geekdom.

Marvel is wasting absolutely no time in 2015 and has started the year running on all cylinders. They began the build-up to their Ant-Man movie on Friday with this, ehm, appropriately-sized trailer. The full-sized version of the trailer can be seen this Tuesday during the debut of Agent Carter.


CES 2015 is set to begin in only two days. Here are some predictions about what may come out of the show.

It's no secret that the prevalence of smart devices is prompting our bodies to respond to these instruments in novel ways. The newest such change: superpowered thumbs.

The Large Hadron Collider is not only once again fully operational, but it is being readied to carry out experiments at double its running power.

File this one under Not Sure If This Is A Good Thing: researchers at the University of Maryland and NICTA (an Australian research center) are having robots learn to cook by having them watch YouTube videos.

It seems improbable, but it's a scenario that's allegedly played out a handful of times in our planet's history. What would happen if every volcano on Earth erupted at once?

Feats of Nerdery

It took him the better part of a work day, but Kenneth Brandon managed to solve the world's largest Rubik's Cube.

As always, best wishes for an excellent week ahead!
