Oh the rain… Oh the 90% humidity… This is the monsoon that happens sometimes in Albertaland. The rain floods basements, frizzes hair, overflows rivers. What is doesn’t do is dryclean the basement carpets, straighten hair, and apply various agricultural procedures of soil draining. Neither it brings you cool links! Which are by some strange coincidence right here:

Vector display Twitter client
This DuMont Labs 208B was hacked to connect to internet and search for "I" in twitter feeds. I don't know about you, I always find old electronics given a new life fascinating.
You Shall Have Bike Lanes Wherever You Go
A collection of links of bicycle gadgets, from a portable bike lane to a vest with LED turn signals. Some digging probably will be required to find the how-tos.

Neuroknitting: Scarves Made from Brainwave Activity
Visually displaying data can make you warm! IF you knit your brainwaves into a scarf. Just make sure you think something clever. Like whether Schrödinger's cat has fleas or not.
Adding wireless charging to any phone
Ever wanted to charge your cell phone without entangling everything in cables? (skip if you already have that). [Daniel] created this economical solution using a few bits found on ebay.

Oh! Also it can't eat chocolate cake. Which we are totally fine with. Because we can take care of it. Ourselves. Not to worry, rain.
