Can Sea water become drinking water of the future?

It seems strange that water should be such a scarce resource when our planet is drenched in 326 million trillion gallons of the stuff. But it turns out that less than one-half of 1 percent of it is drinkable. Out of the rest, 98 percent is oceanic salt water and 1.5 percent remains locked up in icecaps and glaciers.

Minimalist Photos of Retro computers which you never seen before

When you see photos of classic cars from past decade, they’re often beautifully restored, looking better than they did when they left the factory. No such love is given to old computers, as no experts in detailing a 1975 East German HDR 75 (left) exist.

London-based photographer James Ball (aka Docu byte), who we first learned about on Core77, has a thing for vintage computers. Ball went behind the scenes at the UK’s National Museum of Computing, the Science Museum in the UK, Germany’s Technical Collections of Dresden, and California’s Computer History Museum to capture the collections in all their knobby and bleep-bloop glory. Production studio INK digitally retouched the images to return them to their original form with minimalist flair and a pop of color.

See the IBM 1401, Alan Turing’s Pilot ACE, and other vintage lovelies in Ball’s Guide to Computing series in our gallery. Read More
