Finally had a chance to get back to this. Added a cloth simulation and began reworking the glasses uses Solidify attribute.

My company had a spot in InformationWeek for Internet connectivity on ships. With increased connectivity and approaches like GoogleFi, ubiquitous Internet is almost a given on shore. Not so on the ocean. The article is mostly from the consumer perspective, but connectivity (or lack of it) informs how systems are designed. In a weird way, how we design disconnected systems is relevant to mobile devices and vice versa.
We hand-picked these 20 real-world projects from among the InformationWeek Elite 100 winners, looking for ideas that would spark new thinking in your IT organizations.

I pre-ordered one of these from Newegg today (Linux version). It's more of a curiosity but could see it being useful for some applications. For example, for IT hotels, users could plug in their Compute Stick and have their personal desktop available. 

Which brings up another point: When will monitor makers start building monitors with front-accessible HDMI ports? For a long time, PCs shipped with USB ports in the back. They became so useful that some enterprising manufacturers started putting a couple in the front. It's time for monitors to do the same.

Anyhoo, I could see how this would make an interesting cyber-cafe. Provide a bunch of monitors with HDMI inputs. Plug in your computer and go. Bill by the hour. Have an app that lets me order coffee and a backup coffee and I'd be there a couple times a week.
Summary:After debuting its PC-on-a-HDMI-adapter at CES, the chip giant is readying it for shipment -- and has already delivered the first wave of units to tech reviewers.

Found a Blender physics tutorial online and was pleasantly surprised to find it so easy to do this.

Random thought on a lunch break:  I saw a contest post. Enter your email address for a chance to win. If you share the post, you get another chance to win for each person that signs up. Which is better? Put in a single entry and don't invite anyone or invite as many as you can. The former means that the pool of contestants might be smaller. The latter means that you have more entries but the pool is bigger. I was hoping to frame it as an optimization problem but my overtaxed brain cell couldn't figure out the constraints before my soup and salad was done... Oh well.

Pretty wild. 360 video puts you right inside the movie. In a few years maybe all movies will be this way.

<sigh> I need faster hardware. Took 2 hours to render these few seconds.

Finally figured out why my Maya renders kept hanging. Apparently the "Auto" memory settings caps it at some 512M amount or so.  Upped it to 4G and could finally get my scene completed.
