Above, OpenAI's Dactyl gives a demonstration.

A spectacular new age dawns.

Just happened on this serendipitously on Amazon.

Who knew?

I'm a tape fanatic: as an anesthesiologist, you depend on tape for any number of functions.

However, I was an addict long before I ever dreamed of going to med school.

By 3M, truly one of the great companies of all time.
