Stylish toking, coffee with Louis C.K., neuromorphic computer chips and more in our weekly look at the web

Three wheels, 400 miles, ice crevasses and Antarctic weather (meaning 50 mph winds)—these are the conditions that 35-year-old Maria Leijerstam of Great Britain will face as she pedals with two other traditional cyclists from Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica to the South Pole, potentially setting a record for the first trike to ever reach the South Pole. Check out the recumbent trike’s specs in the accompanying video from Gizmodo.
