Scientists from James Cook University’s Singapore campus have published a study which seems to suggest that modern technology is affecting perception of time.

Jeff and Anthony have their doubts about the conclusions of this study, but spend much of their time-discussion trying to pinpoint the exact uses of an Arduino.
