Vijay Kumar - Robots that fly

Prepared to be wow'd. The beginning is just a little dry with formula talk, but he's just setting up the info that he presents later to completely blow us away. Every scenario gets more and more incredible. Watch it all the way through. It is jaw dropping technology.

The hair on my neck went up when he demo's formation flying.

First thing I thought of was The Terminator

Google shows off prototype augmented reality glasses

I love some technology.... this looks very cool



Quote
We've heard rumors about Google working on augmented reality glasses, but now the search engine giant has confirmed the existence of what it calls Project Glass and it's as awesome as you might imagine.

As you can see in the video below or on the Project Glass Google+ page, this new wearable technology will basically consist of a pair of clever glasses which contain a display, a camera, a microphone, and everything necessary to make some sci-fi fantasies come true. (But keep in mind that the Project Glass designs are simply ideas, not final products at this point though.)

So what will you do with a pair of these strange glasses?

Well, you might wake up, slip on your Google glasses and set some calendar alerts before looking up directions to your first meeting of the day. While walking to your destination, you may pause to snap a photo of a funny sign (which you instantly share with your friends via a social media service of your choice) or find a coffee shop. Later you could start a video-chat with a friend and show him or her your current view.

And you'd do all of this without ever reaching for a computer or smartphone. You'd simply speak or tap a button on the glasses and the appropriate actions commence.

Although the idea is cool, I'm still not sold on it. What we are seeing in the video is a mock up of what they hope the glasses will do. Until I see actual footage and performance of the device itself, I will remain skeptical.

PS
I have this beat anyway. I have 3 Pre-Cogs chained to a radiator in my basement.

That looks awesome! I want in on that. The closet thing we have to something like that is the lame thing at Disneyland. Ha, not even close. Why did I even bring it up?

Alien vs. Predator Chess Set

I don't play Chess anymore, but I would definitely get this just for the sake of having it. How much?

Has someone hardwired the lights to a remote control or is this a series of people on each floor in each room doing this based on choreographed moves?

I can't imagine that kind of exact choreography. I would think it has something to do with tapping into the lighting system.
