‘I have a secret kitchen gadget that’s better than any box of ingredients in isolation’

My inbox is currently flooded with suggestions of delivery services offering to supply Michelin-quality ingredients for me to put together. If only, they hint, I can fold a couple of napkins into the shape of a swan and light a pink tapered candle, I can imagine myself in some mythical Chez Bruce.

Coronavirus may have stripped loo roll and spaghetti from the shelves of every supermarket, yet supplies of tarragon, toasted pine nuts and black truffles appear to be holding up very nicely. But I have a secret kitchen gadget that’s better than any carefully packaged box of esoteric ingredients. I have a Thermomix. 

The food processor, first developed in 1971 by a German firm, but particularly popular in France, is a combined chopper, cooker and weighing scales. It can knead dough, ferment kimchi or yoghurt, cook a perfect sous-vide steak, steam trout and prepare rice to sushi standards.

The 50 Most Influential Gadgets of All Time

Think of the gear you can’t live without: The smartphone you constantly check. The camera that goes with you on every vacation. The TV that serves as a portal to binge-watching and -gaming. Each owes its influence to one model that changed the course of technology for good.

It’s those devices we’re recognizing in this list of the 50 most influential gadgets of all time.

Some of these, like Sony’s Walkman, were the first of their kind. Others, such as the iPod, propelled an existing idea into the mainstream. Some were unsuccessful commercially, but influential nonetheless. And a few represent exciting but unproven new concepts (looking at you Oculus Rift).

Rather than rank technologies—writing, electricity, and so on—we chose to rank gadgets, the devices by with consumers let the future creep into their present. The list—which is ordered by influence—was assembled and deliberated on at (extreme) length by TIME’s technology … Read More

Gadget | Tardis | Fandom

Gadget was an exploratory robot used by the crew of the human Mars colony, Bowie Base One, in 2059. It was created and operated by American base technician Roman Groom.

Biography Edit

Roman Groom created Gadget using parts from the drones which originally constructed the Bowie Base One. It was primarily used for exploring the harsh environment of Mars and collecting data from the planet’s surface. It had a vast selection of tools and a camera lens for an eye and stood at approximately 3ft tall. Gadget had no sentience and little autonomy. It was controlled using wired up gloves from the Central Dome of Bowie Base One, and so had similar level of dexterity to a human. When receiving or acknowledging commands, it said, “Gadget! Gadget!”, which its creator said amused him, though the Doctor found it annoying. Gadget could also talk, but only through someone else’s voice,

The Mars Bar-sized gadget helping NZ scientists decode Covid-19 virus

A Mars Bar-sized device is helping Kiwi scientists speedily unravel the genetic jigsaw of the virus driving the Covid-19 crisis – part of an urgent global effort that could help create a vaccine.

ESR has one of three New Zealand labs now running diagnostic testing on Covid-19 samples, to detect the presence of the virus SARS-CoV-2.

That’s done by searching for small parts of the virus genome – or its genetic make-up – within the samples they’re sent.

But ESR scientists have begun going further by sequencing the entire genomes of the samples, rather than just part of them – something that could reveal much more about how the virus is behaving.

“Different parts of the DNA change at different rates – and analysing the complete genome allows us to get the most accurate picture of the changes that happen,” ESR’s Dr Joep de Ligt told the Herald.

“In viruses,
