To all the lovely people asking about my ER visit - though we're still figuring out what's happening, at the moment I'm in no immediate danger of anything except this.

Seriously though, thanks for all your kind words! <3

Nixie, did you get checked for cytomegalovirus?
I've been sick for 8 months (it gives you mononucleosis-like symptoms), I'm feeling a little better now, but get extremely tired very easily, and lots of digestive problems (liver, spleen, intestines, etc).

Usually people get it and don't even get sick, or feel tired for a few days with swollen glands and think it's the flu. But a small percentage of us get kicked very hard by the #%$@@# virus...

Hope you get better

After months of research, I have assembled a pretty killer list of privacy tools for my new video! What's your favorite way to keep your data secure?

Even if you were pretty spaced out this Monday, it's nothing compared to this guy.
GoPro footage is the most recent tool for communication from the brink of exploration.

I still like my idea of GPS dots - tiny tags for our items that can let us know where we've put things in the house. Until GPS gets even smaller/more accurate, a beeping Bluetooth reminder is cool too. :P

I like the idea, but I would have to see how configurable these devices actually are.

Hugging the developer who created an epic facsimile of the dragon Smaug from the Hobbit. It's a great 'Tolkien' of our progress with virtual reality!

What do you want to do in VR?

+Paul Manning Since the immersive workspace doesn't exist yet, we have time to create a complete imagining of the scenario.

RSI and other office related injuries are usually a result of prolonged contortions in non-natural positions. With a UI that is capable of positioning objects around us, I think that limiting the human input devices to a keyboard and mouse in front of a user in a chair is completely the wrong paradigm.

Look at Nixie in this video. She's standing up, hands raised in front of her face, turning her entire body around.

I imagine that the VR Workspace probably doesn't have desktops, keyboards and chairs.

I'm thinking that the space is along the lines of a Jem'Hadar bridge, with the freedom to move around, see through the hull, pointing with your hands and give controls with a Yu-Gi-Oh duel disk (the arm thing).

That was an exemplary issue report +Nixie Pixel​. I believe I learned a thing or two about the issue itself but more importantly about how to author a highly informative issue. Thanks for sharing.

A projector for your table sure beats spilling spaghetti sauce on my current recipe-reader. (my laptop)
More than any other room in your house, the kitchen has changed radically in the past 100 years. And according to Ikea, it’s going to change even more over the next decade.

+mike klaene Actually that part is pretty easy. You use electrical induction in order to heat the pan, and make the pan well insulated at the bottom (where it's induction coil would be).

The biggest problems with this concept is object recognition (is that an egg or some dough?), and also putting protection over the printed OLED screen that is tough enough to take abuse and thin enough to make sure the induction losses are tolerable.

Not to mention a variable energy induction field will cause a few headaches. At the moment we rely on static coils in order to minimize losses. This means the tolerance to movement is too low for this use case. I think you can fix that with a lot of micro coils through.

Why yes, I would like to hack a drone and control it with my Android phone. Now shut up and take my money (maybe if it was half the price.) :P

+Jeremy Williams Jeremy please keep in mind that the person who wrote this song is very likely not even close to as educated on the subject as you are and that incorporating the sequence into this song/album is an extremely impressive feat. Basically what I am saying is while your knowledge on numbers is impressive I am guessing you don't have even close to the musical talent as the person who wrote this song just like he doesn't have the mathematical talent of yourself. It seems nowadays this world is far to quick to point out the mistakes of others because it makes them feel better about themselves. I think people would be much more productive in understanding the fact that no one is perfect and everyone is good at something and when it comes down to it knowing more than another person on a subject is just a fact of existence while being accepting of that fact is what makes someone a better person.... But who knows I could be wrong on all of this so I leave the ball in your court.
