Stuff Office Cat's diary – 15/10/12
Not Safe For Lunch
Felix Baumgartner's body suit camera footage has hit the interwebs and gives a mind-blowing insight into what the courageous daredevil was facing when he plumeted down to Earth from 120,000ft. Sit back and enjoy, though Office Cat wouldn't recommend eating anything while doing so. It gets a little shaky.
Raspberry Pi levels up
Fans of the little PC that could will be pleased to hear that all future models of the Raspberry Pi Model B will come packing 512MB of RAM among their circuits instead of the previous 256MB. Simultaneous cat videos, here we come.
Update: A little birdie has told Office Cat that the Raspberry Pi will be guaranteed to be in stock till January 2013, and orders received before 7pm will get the free delivery treatment. Tinkerers rejoice.
Lego wheelchair struts its stuff
Office Cat struggles with Lego, not having opposable thumbs. But one person who doesn't have that problem is Simon Burfield, whose electric Lego wheelchair creation houses seven microcomputers, has more than a dozen robotic wheels and can hold up to 200 pounds.
