This gif shows the Bebionic’s V3 prosthetic hand in action.
Nigel Ackland lost his arm in an accident six years ago, and even though he was fitted with a V3 just last November (2013), he’s already able to use it to help tie his shoes, deal cards, and even make a cup of coffee while navigating his kitchen.

It was very non-obvious to me what was going on and google wasn't super helpful, so I'm posting in case someone else searches for the same "but it is not going to be installed" installed error message.
Turns out, what happened is that I needed to run apt-get update, and now it's happy.
Well, at least relative to that... buildout in mailman-bundler is complaining about numpy so I've still got some work to do!
Distracted Driver Face Dataset
Video is a series of tests with facial recognition software and recordings of people sat in the driver seat of a car looking away from the road. Whilst there is no driving involved, it highlights how this tech will move into transport and how these vehicles will observe the driver:
Let’s work on self driving cars instead, so people can have fun being distracted by all the things instead of worrying about or being bored by driving.
The guy in the picture is Aydian Dowling and he is trans. He’s in a competition to be on the cover of Men’s Health, and it would just be amazing if he won. Not only does he deserve it, but it would be HUGE for a transgender man to be on the cover of a widely popular magazine. He is currently in 9th place!! Please vote for him, so that us trans people can gain more visibility.
