Jennifer Morrison on wearing the Season 3 finale ball gown.
You ever have those moments where, just out of nowhere, you’re hit with a rock-hard Halloween boner? You are suddenly consumed with desire for pumpkin spice flavored everything, orange and black decorations everywhere you look, skulls, pumpkins, spiderwebs, spooky music, movies like Hocus Pocus and Trick R Treat, stripey stockings on the cheap, weak-ass little fog machines, ect. even though it’s the middle of goddamn June?
Reblogging this for SEVERAL people I know.
To any Tumblrites who are deaf, hard of hearing, know people who are, or just enjoy cool tech, a start-up called MotionSavvy is working on technology that uses Leap Motion to recognize sign language and and outputs written or spoken English. The project was started by a group of deaf students at RIT’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf (yay RIT!) who moved to San Francisco to develop the product with Leap.
The team has over 800 deaf beta testers, but they are looking for more. They hope to have a product available to consumers by September of 2015.
The links are definitely worth checking out: according to the TechCrunch article, the prototype only understands about 100 words at the moment, but they’re working on more with the beta testers. I’m guessing it’ll probably be realistic to eventually expect a level comparable to other types of machine translation (Google Translate, etc.), which although by no means perfect is still very useful.
I’ve gotten a lot of asks wondering how I make the fangs shown above so here is my easy cheap trick:
• Buy plain fake nails from the store (ex: walgreens, cvs, beauty supply, it’s all cheap really and with a whole pack you can make as many as you want or reuse your old ones!)
• Use scissors to cut out fangs to fit your teeth. (Use a size up from your tooth so it will lie flat.)
• Purchase denture glue (yes that stuff that old folks use to keep their fake teeth in with)
• Apply a small amount to the back of the fake nail/tooth and hold it on to your tooth until it feels secure. (Your lips will help keep it in, don’t worry if it moves when you push it with your tongue.)
Voila! You’re the inhuman creature you have always wished to be. Just.. you know… don’t eat anything except liquids or your dreams will come crashing down.
I get the feeling that if Sam and Dean were to meet a dementor and it tried to feed on one of their souls, it would end up throwing it back up and be all “no” and then disappear.
because it had to be done
