Apple is currently working on implementing the ability to control a device with your mind, to limited success.
How do you know that isn't true?
I mean, it seems thoroughly outrageous to me... nobody can understand brainwaves enough to use them usefully... right?
Unless... Pi-Bot is supplying them with the research they need...

2021 grind starts now... and no excuses about not knowing the rules yet!

iirc the brain operates by sending multitudes of electromagnetic signals from neuron to neuron (I'm not completely sure tho), so I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility. At least, it seemed to make sense in Warcross (Marie Lu).

Forums filter. I think it used to be "butterfly," from stalking old sassy games?
Also, is it really still considered a curse word?

AFAIK it originally meant 'to condemn to HeII', that fits the definition of curse pretty well I think...
EDIT: That's a fun fact that is true... here's one that isn't:
It is well known that batteries lose maximum charge the more they are recharged. A lesser-known fact is that at a certain threshold, they begin to gain charge again.

Silica packets actually have the opposite effect on snails that salt has. When one applies the packet to the side of a snail, the snail instantly grows 3x larger.

I will dab on stage twice if I get an award at a SciOly Competition. If you and I go to a competition, and I get an award, you will probably know who I am.

And, if you see me:
Stand up.
And then dab.
See you there!

Back on the topic of fun facts, did you know that Belgian waffles were originally octagonal instead of round? The waffle irons were just inconvenient to manufacture, so they decided to go ahead and make them circular.
