Slashdot.org has passed along news that the University of Electro-communications has created an artificial, Internet-enabled tongue. You manipulate a control with your tongue, and a paired control somewhere else mimics your tongue's movements inside someone else's mouth.
There's also discussion of Ubuntu's new user interface, which seems to have suffered from the rush to put out the latest version of the linux-based operating system. One user claims "Ubuntu is doing a great job throwing away years of UI experience." Ouch.
Just thought I would pass along the odd news of the day.
