Acoustic cryptanalysis

This is not neuroscience, but still quite baffling. Did you know your CPU is possibly emitting sounds (at 10KhZ+) that reveal not only activity, but also which type of computations are performed? As has been demonstrated by Genkin et al., in the worst case, this can be used to actually snoop a RSA secret key from a computer decrypting texts...

Minimizing splashback at urinals

Yay, first post, and it’s not even neuroscience. Still, since this is a male-dominated field, it could prove useful. Urinal Dynamics: a tactical guide Through high-speed videos we show that significant splash back can occur when using a urinal, however, there are mitigation techniques. ¬†First, aim for a vertical surface rather than a horizontal one and keep away from the...
