Internet Gold: Human-powered helicopter


These guys put together a helicopter that is powered not by your typical sort of fuel, but rather by the power of the human body. This helicopter won the Sikorsky Prize, a coveted prize for the research into human-powered helicopter flight, by hovering for over a minute in the air, almost ten feet above the floor!

Craig Wright attempts to prove he is Bitcoin's creator, Satoshi -- again

Craig Wright has become infamous in recent Bitcoin news for claiming to be the man behind the mask, the mysterious creator of the main-chain cryptocurrency himself -- the legendary Satoshi Nakamoto.

Wright has tried to convince skeptics before with proof that has, well, folded under the pressure (to put it politely), but this time he says he has irrefutable evidence that will vindicate his name(s).

"You should be sceptical."

There is a consensus on just what exactly would constitute irrefutable evidence, and it boils down to A.) signing messages with Satoshi's private key, or B.) transferring Bitcoin at command from early blocks that only Satoshi could possess.

Only time will tell if Wright is claiming his rightful mantle as the progenitor of Bitcoin. In his own words, "You should be sceptical. You should question. I would."

UPDATE: Craig Wright has backed down from publishing the 'extraordinary proof' that he is Bitcoin's creator, Satoshi Nakamoto. He says he does not 'have the courage' to put 'years of anonymity' behind him.
