The Conversacube Makes Dating Awkward People Easier

Crushing on a totally cute dude with absolutely no social skills? Then why not get a Conversacube to make conversation easy?

The microphones monitor audio levels of each participant and the cube responds accordingly, adjusting prompts to enliven, mediate conflict, or balance conversation as necessary.” Yes, we can think of a few guys we’ve dated who could have used this. And no, sadly, it is not actually available on the market. [Neatorama] Keep reading »

The study evaluated four main categories: economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, political empowerment, and health and survival. The U.S. came in 19th. And at the bottom of the list — Pakistan, Chad and Yemen. [NPR] Keep reading »
