Adam Fincham is trying to make waves with a Tupperware full of agave and an avocado. Internal waves, specifically—the kind that exist in stratified fluid. Fincham is standing at a metal chef’s table in the kitchen at Kelly Slater’s Surf Ranch, in toasty Lemoore, California. A chef is in the kitchen preparing salmon grain bowls for the assemblage of pro surfers hanging around outside, but Fincham is intent on his own concoction. He’s pouring water against the curved side of a spoon, directly into the corner of the 7-by-7-inch container filled with the syrupy agave. Now, on top of that, he’s creating a lighter layer of water. Just like the ocean. He takes what he calls his wave generator—the avocado—and drops it gently into the Tupperware. Look from the side, he urges me. I crouch down and stare into the agave. Sure enough, in the layer of thick brown syrup, a tiny wave peels off the side of the Tupperware and rolls toward the other end of the … [Read more...] about Kelly Slater’s Artificial Surf Pool Is Really Making Waves

IP Australia is looking to blockchain to provide a solution to supply chain weaknesses, starting with baby formula. The government entity that falls under the responsibility of the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science is soon moving into export trials of the solution with a Canberra-based small goods exporter, following a successful proof of concept with local blockchain firm Agile Digital and secure cloud provider Vault Systems. IP Australia administers intellectual property rights and legislation relating to patents, trademarks, registered designs, and plant breeder's rights in Australia. Speaking with ZDNet about the solution, Agile Digital executive director David Elliot explained his company, alongside Vault Systems, is creating a "smart" trademark with the patents office. "It's about baby powder being pulled off the shelves in Australia and being sent to buyers in China," Elliot explained. "What's going on there is the supply chain is questionable in some countries … [Read more...] about IP Australia trialling blockchain for food provenance

Well, I have some (kinda) good news for you. Today I'm reviewing the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3, a 7.9in Chinese tablet that has no shame in borrowing a healthy dose of design cues from a certain fruit logo-bearing competitor.

Warning: mild spoilers below for the first five episodes of Westworld season 2, including the promotional teaser for episode 6. For most of the people watching HBO’s science fiction series Westworld, when Betty Gabriel’s character Maling mentions “the Cradle” in the second season’s third episode, it’s just a throwaway reference. But hardcore fans know better — at least, the ones who have been willing to dive into the in-world websites, chatbots, and email blasts that serve as the show’s viral marketing campaign. They know the Cradle is a simulation technology, and Delos, Inc. uses it to test storylines before they’re deployed in the company’s parks. In-the-know fans are aware of the Cradle’s codename (CR4-DL) and have seen schematics of the system, which made a quiet appearance in a trailer all the way back in March. It makes sense that Westworld, a show about a digital re-creation of the real world, is using an online … [Read more...] about Westworld’s digital marketing is giving fans sneak peeks at the show’s biggest secrets
