    This is a picture of white noise that Google fed into its image recognition neural network and instructed said network to find images in, over and over again. Since there were no images to be found the network created something from nothing.

    Who was it that was watching "What We Do in the Shadows"? @Delmain ? That was really great

    If it was recently it wasn't me

    watching that is tied with the bottle of bourbon as the best thing to come out of being with the Girl What Has Stabbed Police With A Pen While Escaping Hospital

    The apple watch is just such a silly product. It's not useless but it is probably the most unnecessary thing I own, and I own both a 1 kg tungsten cube and a virtual boy.

    A few times a day it does something that makes me laugh the same way that bethesda game bugs make me laugh.

    You should buy one of these for something maximally unnecessary

    If you were in the developer beta it would probably be completely useless and not just amusing in its weirdness.

    My watch is far less enjoyable a device in its current state. But I can definitely see what they are going for, and once native apps and HomeKit happen, it's going to be much more compelling a product.

    Not 100%. Not essential at all. I am telling people to hold off right now. But it has promise of being the next great thing.

    That's really neat. If anyone is wondering why it seems to pick out mountains and arches for constructing its weird hallucinated images, it's just the nature of neural networks. They fed in noise, told the algorithm to amplify any features it found, then then fed the modified image back through. So while it might see a tree or a dog through the noise, when it runs back over the image, it'll see the same dog or tree and amplify it again. When you have a repeating structure, on the first run through a little bit of noise will be mistaken for a series of arches. On pass 2, the network will see the arches it hallucinated last time, and imagine the whole arch pattern centered on each repeating segment. That will strengthen the hallucination in its original spot, but also start to slowly grow the chain of arches outward. After a bunch of iterations, the chain of arches or mountains grows and swirls and chains up with something else. It's all really neat.

    seriously though, those bespoke pens sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    I can't even imagine what it would be like to be in the business of selling these things. Interacting with people for whom money is clearly no object, selling things that are a few thousand dollars worth of precious metals, twice that in precious stones, laboriously melded into something that clearly looks like total shit.

    Selling ostentatious status symbols that are almost certainly acknowledged to be overpriced by both parties in the transaction, and in fact the buyer probably considers its overpricing to be a point in its favour.

    I can imagine selling to the rich Chinese, they pick up a 200,000 pen, so you say :"Oh yes, they're quite popular with our Japanese customers" and then nudge them toward the $300k pen.

    Why would you even carry a $200K pen if a $300K pen exists? No one wants a second rate pen, even if it's encrusted with diamonds.
