Audiophile headphone maker Audeze targets gamers with Mobius cans

“Our picture of the Universe has changed dramatically in the last 50 years, and I’m happy if I made a small contribution.” Those are the humble words of the great Stephen Hawking, who passed away yesterday at the age of 76. Tributes to the modern-day icon of physics and scientific thought are pouring in from all corners of the globe today, as we say goodbye to a man who changed the way we see the universe around us, and even how we view time itself.

According to a tribute by Cambridge University, where he worked for decades including right up until his death, Hawking was not considered a star student by teachers as a youth, but his schoolmates knew better and called him “Einstein,” and encouraged him to pursue a career in science. Good thing, as Hawking would go on to suss out the true nature of black holes and even break into the mainstream with his best-selling book, A Brief History of Time.

He has been knighted, honored, medaled and recognized as one of the great modern thinkers, even though he was confined to wheelchair – and had to speak through a computer – due to the effects of motor neurone disease, which he was diagnosed with in his 20s. Doctors told him at the time he had just a few years to live. Beating the odds, he went on to the position of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge, a title once held by Sir Isaac Newton.
