Inside Siri.

Ever wondered about the origins of Apple’s Siri? Well if you did, science, tech, innovation, and culture website The Verge take a look inside the art of making computers talk by going behind-the-scenes at Nuance Communications, the creators of the smartphone voiceover.

Entitled, “How Siri found its voice” the 10-minute documentary charts the history of voice synthesisation and how machines are learning to talk to us.



The owners of this London flat have found a way to maximise their living space without resorting to a bed that foldings into a closet.

If you’ve ever relied on natural light from a high skylight, you know that it can often feel like a second-rate window. This brilliant hack put the bed just feet below the light, thanks to a wrought iron basket mounted to the ceiling—so the sleepers wake up with the sun.

Aside from that obvious awesomeness, it’s also a smart space saver. This particular apartment is a cozy 500 square feet, but it seems much larger once you get rid of the large mattress. Underneath the bed is an office space, and above it is a glass skylight that retracts to reveal a rooftop garden.

Great creative use of space. I want.
