Check out radiolab's live show.  Or go to radiolab.org to check out some of their podcasts, lots of good story telling with a scientific bent.

Dinosaurs in Space

I talked my wife into a dinosaurs in space nursery theme, if we have a boy.  Just found this and thought it deserved a share.

The Civil Engineering nerd in me likes this.  

I've read a little about cloud computing, but this hits close to home.  Using cloud computing cities like Seattle and New York are able to navigate through massive amounts of real time data about their cities, roads, underground piping, building information including each of their energy systems.  With this information engineers, city mangers and political leaders are able to visualize traffic management solutions, sustainability options and growth impacts among many other possibilities.  This network of information is going to be pretty wild in 10-20 years after increased computing power and growing input from cities and professionals.  It looks pretty cool now.

Real World Asteroid Mining

I know this is old news but this is a good in depth look (best that I've seen) at what Planetary Resources are getting into concerning exploration and implementation of mining near earth asteroids.  http://www.planetaryresources.com/ check out the website for more information.

Passion and Purpose in the Workplace

Insight: "The bottom line is that the function of an enterprise is no longer to create efficiency by organizing men and material, but to create value by directing passion and purpose."

Remember those Cool Kinect Vdeos

You know the hacks where they were have all sorts of fun with Microsoft's 3d lidar/camera system.

Looks like these guys have put together a pretty sweet little tablet/camera that creates models, using I'm assuming similar technology(it just says 3D depth sensor).

This type of thing is just getting started, but there will be some cool applications that come out of it.

They also have a kickstarter for the project.
