+ - Surfer dude stuns physicists with theory of every->

Submitted by GDI Lord
GDI Lord (988866) writes ""An impoverished surfer has drawn up a new theory of the universe, seen by some as the Holy Grail of physics, which has received rave reviews from scientists. Garrett Lisi, 39, has a doctorate but no university affiliation and spends most of the year surfing in Hawaii, where he has also been a hiking guide and bridge builder (when he slept in a jungle yurt)... his proposal is remarkable because, by the arcane standards of particle physics, it does not require highly complex mathematics. Even better, it does not require more than one dimension of time and three of space, when some rival theories need ten or even more spatial dimensions and other bizarre concepts. And it may even be possible to test his theory, which predicts a host of new particles, perhaps even using the new Large Hadron Collider atom smasher that will go into action near Geneva next year... Lisi's inspiration lies in the most elegant and intricate shape known to mathematics, called E8 — a complex, eight-dimensional mathematical pattern with 248 points first found in 1887, but only fully understood by mathematicians this year after workings, that, if written out in tiny print, would cover an area the size of Manhattan.""

+ - Fan-Made C&C:Red Alert Tesla Coil->

GDI Lord
GDI Lord writes "RADen has posted the news about a fan made Tesla Coil from C&C:RA.

From RADEN:

Peter Terren of the Red Alert website Telsa Down Under has recreated the Soviet Tesla coil straight out of the game! It took him about 100 hours of work to make the models and equipment. Obviously he's a very devoted C&C fan. On his website he details how he created the Tesla Coil and the other models you see in that picture below. Quite ingenious indeed!
