Last Week in 5 Links #69

This week we have a selection of cooking by force, vertical forest from China, TUI’s software accident, C64 Bitcoin Miner and the Eyecam, all handpicked by Attila Csizofszki.

Cooking Chicken by Slapping it

Honestly, I got shocked when I watched this. Some people have way too much time. Who on Earth would try to cook a chicken by slapping it? Anyway, I had a good laugh, so the video filled its purpose. I would put it on the menu as ‘Slap roast chicken‘.

Vertical Forest

I love this! I find the idea amazingly good and creative. I always liked flat-roof buildings with parks and green plants on the top. If I ever build my own house, I will make it an eco-house with lots of flowers and shrubs. A lot of green plants in the home can provide a good ecosystem. The only downside I can see is that you would invest a lot of time in gardening.

TUI Accident

After the software error spotted, TUI manually adjusted the figures in the system, but they forgot to amend all the fights for a given day. The system told the pilots that the aeroplane is 1200 kg lighter than it was. This is just crazy. I wouldn’t think in general that people can die from software errors, but yes. In some industries, it is possible. Scary.

C64 Bitcoin Miner

My first computer was a C64 and it is always close to my heart. Most of the time, we played on it. I had a programming book and copied the commands and it was amazing to watch them running. Using a C64 for mining is…unbelievable. Well, it calculates one hash in 5 seconds, so it’s only a joke. Don’t mine with a C64 😉

The Eyecam

Super weird. This is definitely for fun only and not for daily use. Way too creepy.

This is a post in the Last Week in 5 Links series. We share a lot of interesting videos, articles and other types of content in our internal chat. We thought some of the info we come across could come in handy for others too. So each week we post five of the links we shared between ourselves in the previously selected by one of our team.

If you have any comments, ideas or personal experiences, feel free to share with us. We are curious to hear new ideas, solutions, and perspectives regarding the above. Don’t forget to follow us on our social media!
