Work has begun on a new generation of USB that will break compatibility with existing connectors in order to improve ease of use and allow for thinner devices. The new connector, called Type-C, is an addition to the existing USB 3.1 specification and is expected to be finalized by the middle of 2014. There aren’t any images available yet, but Type-C will be around the size of a Micro USB plug and, like Apple’s Lightning connector, will finally be reversible — in other words, no more frustrated attempts to charge your phone with an upside-down cable.

San Francisco startup Coin today announced its first product — a credit card-sized device that digitally stores up to eight credit, debit, gift, or membership cards, and lets you switch between them by pressing a circular button on its surface. You can then swipe the Coin in any conventional reader or ATM machine as if it were the original card itself.
Having won an international design competition, Dutch firm NEXT Architects says that construction will begin next year for its novel take on a pedestrian bridge. The span will cross over a river in Changsha in China’s Hunan province, but it won’t look anything like your typical bridge: three individual paths interleave, rise, and fall, giving it the appearance of an optical illusion. “The construction with the intersecting connections is based on the principal of the Möbius ring,” project architect Michel Schreinemachers says, adding that it also evokes a knot found in ancient Chinese folk art. It’ll run 150 meters (492 feet) in length, rising 24 meters (79 feet) high when it’s completed.
looks fun to drive over.
I want a fucking cliff castle.
I made a video where I talk about a thing that stops your 3ds games from escaping their handheld prison.
