NEW! NORML presents an impairment-measuring iPhone App!

Update on our Impairment Measuring iPhone AppDear NORML Friends,


Walk or Drive is the new name for our CheckPlusBalance iPhone impairment-measuring app. We still help you decide whether or not to drive based upon objective evidence-based testing. Although sensitive to marijuana, it is sensitive generally to any impairing influence. We measure memory, balance, time perception, and reaction time, and compare it to your personal baseline. NORML’s Deputy Director Paul Armentano helped with the development of the testing.

Ready for your electronic tattoo?

The concept sounds simultaneously futuristic and bizarre. But mark my words: You’ll get one. And sooner than you think.

Computerworld – Google is in the process of selling parts of Motorola to China’s Lenovo, but not all of it. It’s not selling Motorola’s visionary research group, Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP), for example.

Reports that mention Google’s ATAP group typically list a few of the better-known and more colorful projects they’re working on.

One of these is Project Ara, which is a modular phone concept that enables people to use 3D printers and other hacks to build just about any kind of phone they want. Google recently announced hardware-hacking conferences for the project that will begin in April. Some say the phone could go on sale as early as next year for as little as $50. Wow! Cool!

Another is a pill called a “vitamin authentication pill” that generates a password when swallowed. Uh, OK. That sounds, er, interesting.
