VODER First Speech Synthesizer Attempt

VODER: World’s First Synthetic Speech Synthesizer [Retro]

Ever since the first personal computer was introduced, researchers have been trying to create a lifelike speech synthesizer that can comfortably and correctly convert text on the screen into perfect speech. There have been a number of approaches, and pretty much all of them have failed miserably. This might sound like a big fail to all of us, but the reality is that our vocal chords are truly hard to recreate and there are several muscles that control the pitch and sound of them. The ...

Prison vs. School Food Infographic

Prison vs. School Food: Likeness You Won’t Believe

When I was in school, I never thought the food was too bad. I think I was actually one of the few who actually liked it. I’ve never been too scruffy when it comes to food, and I think even though you might not think it looks really delicious, sometimes you should definitely give it a go. Of course, there are a few foods I don’t like, and I tend to keep those out of my meals as much as possible. There is a strong ...

How To Be Happier

How To: Think More Positive Thoughts

I’ve studied a lot about thoughts and thought patterns during my life. It’s a topic that especially intrigued me when I was attending University, and I remember being in the library for many long nights completely fascinated by all the information available about how our brains work. Our thoughts are either conscious or unconscious. When we have an unconscious thought, it is triggered by something that happens in our daily life. When this occurs (which can happen many times during the day), we either relive ...

Men vs Women Better Drivers

Expert Driving Techniques Everyone Needs To Know

Remember when everyone used to ask for fun, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” Then CNN, MSNBC and most of the other news websites published the definitive answer, as determined by some obviously very smart scientists. The egg came first. One of the next most common riddles is, “Who are better drivers, men or women?” Personally, I think those gender questions when they refer to things like driving are kind of ridiculous because we are all human beings. Some human beings suck, some ...

Facebook Friends Extreme Tattoo

Social Media Tattoo: Put Facebook Friends On Your Arm

[Update: Too bad this tattoo turned out to be fake! I was really hoping this girl was for real.] I realize that this story is on every single major blog in the world today, but if there was ever anything that deserved to be on Bit Rebels, this is it. I just couldn’t resist writing about it. This has got to be the wackiest social media WTF incident ever. Richard just wrote an article about some really cool black light tattoos. I thought this might ...

Black Light Glowing Tattoo Technology

The Black Light Tattoo Revolution Is Here

I think tattoos are getting more and more common, and every time I get back to the tattoo studio that I use to get my tattoos, they are more and more booked. I don’t know if the reason people get them is because they think they’re cool or because they’re personal to them, but for me, it’s all about being personal. All the tattoos I have are drawn by me, and if I ever used a template, I changed it completely so it wouldn’t be ...

Never Ending Shower Shampoo Prank

The Never Ending Shampoo Prank

If the world suddenly stopped being a fun place, I think humanity itself would certainly die out rather quickly. A good prank can be remembered for the rest of your life, and as they say, a laugh will make you live longer. I love a good prank, and it all has to do with timing. A bad prank can go horribly wrong if you’re not careful. The subject of the prank might get quite hostile, and that’s never good. As long as you keep things ...

Home Movie Theater Theme Design

Batman & Pirates Themed Home Movie Theaters

There is a revolution going on, and it all has to do with movies. Now you’re probably wondering what the hell I am talking about, but I am sure you can’t figure it out. Here’s where I always go wrong, I mean, you guys must have read the title of this article so you probably know already what it is about. So, this would be a good place to go Simpsons on your butts so, DOH! What I mean of course is that more and ...

Chocolate Websites Becoming Popular

Delicious New Trend: Websites Created Out Of Chocolate

I have a trend alert for you, and it tastes delicious! Have you ever seen a chocolate website? I’m not referring to a website that sells chocolates or that is designed to look like chocolate. I’m talking about a website that is actually made out of chocolate. It seems like a bizarrely wonderful concept, doesn’t it? I’ll give you a brief history of what has transpired in the world of chocolate websites over the past few months. In April, Whittaker’s launched the world’s first website ...

Elegant Papercraft Shoe Creations

Design Inspiration: Elegant Shoes Made From Paper

When I logged into Bit Rebels this morning to start writing, I got that uneasy feeling that something was missing from the site. At first I couldn’t put my finger on what it was. After several minutes passed, I figured it out. It was SHOES! I have written dozens of articles about creative shoes, but I haven’t written any in the past few months. How could I let that much time pass without addressing one of my favorite accessories of all time? I immediately went ...

Midlife Crisis Brings Changes

10 Purchases That Might Indicate A Midlife Crisis

Recently someone I know suddenly sold her house and gave away almost all her possessions. It was such a bizarre move, and to me, seemed very out of character. She is about 50 years old, and when I was telling my friend about it, she said, “It sounds to me like she is having a midlife crisis.” I was shocked to find when I checked WebMD that a midlife crisis is real. I’ve always thought it was just a funny stage of life that people ...

How Portugal See Entire Europe

The Way Portugal Apparently Sees Europe

It’s always funny to see how the rest of the world views your home country. Having lived in another country, I think it’s even more interesting to check out how different people’s views are. They always seem to differ. I have been asked if we have polar bears on the streets here in Sweden, and also what we use to eat our food with. Of course that is bound to bring you a huge smile and maybe even a giggle, but you would have thought ...

17 Odd Facts About Seinfeld

17 Odd Facts About Seinfeld That Might Surprise You

I am one of those odd people who would rather work instead of watching a series on the telly. I know I will get sucked right in and then hours upon hours will get wasted on something that I will never gain anything from, if you know what I mean. That happened when I started watching 24 (you know that humongously successful show on TV with Kiefer Sutherland). I just couldn’t put it down. I even bought the darn DVD boxes of it and watched ...
