I've been gone for some time now, but now I'm back and I'll be popping in here occasionally to post, comment, and +1 stuff. There might not be a Windows 10 G+ app yet, but there's ways of getting around that (including Chrome). So I won't be so absent, any more than G+ is "dead"...

+Jeremy Hodges Yeah, I usually use Chrome, but the Win10 Google app lets you got to G+ with a few extra clicks. On Android I use the G+ app, but that's Google's own OS and Google doesn't like Microsoft, so it'll be a while before Win10 users get a dedicated G+ app...

Once again science jumps ahead of science fiction...

A machine that clones objects into holographic images that people can actually touch has been created. "Place an object in one box, and a hologram of the object appears in another box. You can gently touch the hologram and it will react to your touch, which you can feel."

"The system concentrates ultrasound energy at the intersections of the real and clone objects, which creates pressure to the real objects. If the 'real object' is your finger, you feel contact force from the 3D clone object by the ultrasonic radiation pressure. At the same time, the same forces are applied to the original real object (of the clone) in the other workspace. The posture and the shape of the hand can be arbitrary."

"The difference of Haptoclone interaction from actual contact is the displayed force is limited to about 100mN per square centimeter or less and the value is decided arbitrarily. Besides, the force direction is basically normal to the surface. But produced contact positions and areas are faithfully controlled on the object, which can produce realistic tactile sensation in some classes of contact."

"It realizes various telehaptic experiences. Though a literal 'handshake' is impossible since the produced force is weak, it is possible to stroke the hand of the other side and lightly touch each other freely at arbitrary parts of the hand, sharing the haptic sensation. Stroked by a clone hand, you feel existence of multiple fingers as well as where you are touched. In some modified manners, haptic communication as a handshake and high-fived can be achieved."
In a breakthrough that may change post-mortem 2Pac concerts for the rest of time, Japanese scientists have created a machine that clones objects into holographic images that people can actually tou...

Short version: we don't need the Skywalkers ruling (and ruining) the galaxy like in the now noncanonical Expanded Universe. One more is more than enough (and if you've watched The Force Awakens you know who he is).
Of all the many successes Episode VII has going for it — including wiping away the stain of the prequel trilogy — Rey stands out as the film's greatest achievement. Fittingly, the internet is completely awash in theories about her.

Local ranchers agree, and they're not happy.
 
Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden says "outsiders" are to blame for the situation in a rural part of the state where protesters are occupying a national wildlife refuge to object to a prison sentence for local ranchers for burning federal land. Wyden told The Associated Press he had been briefed by Gregory Bretzing, the FBI special agent in charge in Portland, Oregon. Wyden says the FBI is coordinating with state police and the Harney County sheriff's offi...

Methinks it's time to revive this Community again.

Burr has just reset the #FAWM site. We're live for 2016.

Let's do this!

No enemies to the Right, eh? Not even for the GOP token black guy and token female?
