This free ‘time machine’ app turns your old black and white photos to colour


Colourise uses artificial intelligence to act as a ‘time machine’ for old photos. It was developed as part of a ‘hackathon’ contest in Singapore that used deep learning to effectively colourise old images. Now it’s been launched on the web for anyone to use with their own pictures. The team behind the tool say they do not store any photos that users upload to the service.

I’ve tried it on a bunch of 1960’s black and white photos I have and most of them came out very well. Only one photo had a stretch of gravel road identified as green grass but apart from it is impressive. There is a link at the bottom of the article below that will take you to the app.

Behind the scenes on Thunderbirds 1965: a project to produce three new episodes of the classic television show Thunderbirds - exactly the way it was done in the 60s!


I fondly remember watching this series very regularly when TV first came out in South Africa probably in the late 1970s. The fact that such trouble has been taken to reproduce it in this way means I was not the only one, and it is a real tribute to the original innovators back in the 1960s.

The Saints of Silicon at the Centre for Computing History have got hold of the original build of Sinclair's ZX Spectrum - Hopes to bring silicon back to life over next few weeks


The hardware had been in the possession of Nine Tiles, a company responsible for the BASIC ROM in the ZX80 and ZX81 and called upon to provide the new BASIC for Sir Clive's new colour computer. Judging by labels on the ROM chips, the computer dates from around July 1981.

The Register had a chat with museum curator and CEO Jason Fitzpatrick, who told them the hardware had been fired up at some point in the past, and that the museum hoped to bring it back to life in the coming weeks, if the silicon cooperates.

And the value? In world where a working Apple 1 board can fetch $350,000, it's difficult to put a price on the one-off. Fitzpatrick remarked "It's in the eye of the beholder."

Yes I behold this computer with awe. The ZX81 (its predecessor) was the second computer I owned and where I really cut my teeth on programming in BASIC and hex. The ZX81's and ZX Spectrums launched m... Show more...

Es stimmt: Die Hochphase des Rock'n'Roll ist lange her. Doch dass man diesen Sound auch späteren Generationen nahebringen kann, wird immer wieder aufs Neue bewiesen.

Welche Musik gehört werden darf und welche nicht, das entscheiden die Eltern - und die Kinder ignorieren es. Auf dem Balkan ist eine Generation herangewachsen, die sich wenig um die Grenzen zwischen den Kulturen schert.

Is This The World’s Coolest Tesla Charger? A 1950's retro looking Charger


According to Inverse, “When Tony Caciolo put the finishing touches on his Tesla electric car charger, he didn’t expect to become an internet sensation. The destination charger is styled like a 1950s gas pump, designed to match his ice cream parlor, a fun mix of old and new that rapidly captured the imagination of the community.”

“We just powered it up yesterday,” Caciolo told Inverse. “I haven’t announced it publicly on our website yet, although the word got out fast!” Before Caciolo even made the Tesla charger active, a fan uploaded a photo of it to Reddit, where it received nearly 5,000 upvotes.

Hopefully, this starts a trend!!

8bit Game Remakes: Wizball


Most remakes of old 1980s 8bit games suck, but there are a few exceptionally good ones.

This Wizball remake managed to capture the essence and the spirit of the original C64 version and transitioned it well into the new century. It's hypnotic and psychedelic, and the sound and music (revolutionary back then in the original version) have been carefully updated and are amazing.

I played this a lot a few years ago (or rather, quite a long time ago, certainly before i joined d*), I think I managed to beat it; afair it works on GNU/Linux with WINE.
