Agence France-Presse, via The Guardian, reports that researchers at a state-run agricultural research center called Agroscope have determined that tiny hay particles that fall into the milk are the main reason Swiss cheese develops holes. Previously, research suggested the holes were caused by carbon dioxide released by bacteria, but that’s apparently not the case. More →

Epic photos of ‘GoPro’ style cameras in the 1960s

These days, if you’re looking to capture some extreme sports action, whether it be Base Jumping or even surfing, you’d be hard pressed to find a better solution than a GoPro camera. Indeed, GoPro cameras are seemingly everywhere these days, even showing up during yesterday’s Google I/O presentation in the form of a virtual reality rig comprised of 16 GoPro cameras.

So while GoPro gets the job done today, what did the adventure seekers of yore do to capture their death defying and adrenaline pumping feats of grandeur? Well, they worked with the tools they had at the time and opted to attach bulky and unwieldy cameras to their helmets.
