Another milestone. I'm hopeful for what's to come.
 
#Si2 landed after 4 days, 22 Hours and 1 minute in Hawaii. Congratulations André Borschberg for this first in history, congratulations Bertrand Piccard for your vision. Congrats #solarTEAM...!

FF7!! Nostalgia!

The game that I convinced my mom to let me have a PlayStation!
The game that I snuck the 20" tube TV from the living room into mine at night.
The game that I beat with the in-game timer stopped counting.

Please don't screw up the remake.

Remember Philae from awhile ago? 
Tweet Rosetta's lander Philae is out of hibernation! The signals were received at ESA's European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt at 22:28 CEST on 13 June. More than 300 data packets have been analysed by the teams at the Lander Control Center at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). "Philae is doing very well: It has an operating temperature of -35ºC and has 24 Watts available," explains DLR Philae Project Manager Dr. Stephan Ulamec. "The lande...

I am Canadian
You either have know how to say "I'm Canadian" in six deterrent languages or find five others who speak the rest. Go collaboration!

Know your geography

You can scroll down the page to find more locations! Some are as detailed as neighborhoods of a city.

Via a Reddit post.
Find all African countries as quick as you can. It's harder than you might think.

Good job, LEGO!
Please make your research open source, or at least easily available.  It will benefit our society as a whole. Collaboration is the way forward.
In an effort to become more sustainable, the toy manufacturer is hiring 100 specialists . Lego investing a billion kroner into sustainable materials

I've forgotten you can do this with YouTube videos.
Now, I wonder what the same video would look like if you have the Google cardboard contraption.

This is really cool.
 
Our hands are fast and precise instruments, but so far, we haven’t been able to capture their sensitivity and accuracy in user interfaces. However, there’s a natural vocabulary of hand movements we’ve learned from using familiar tools like smartphones, and Project Soli aims to use these motions to control other devices. For example, your hand could become a virtual dial to control volume on a speaker, or a virtual touchpad to browse a map on a smartwatch screen.

To make our hands self-contained interface controls, the team needed a sensor that could capture submillimeter motions of overlapping fingers in 3D space. Radar fits all these requirements, but the necessary equipment was just a little…big.

So the Project Soli team created a gesture radar small enough to fit in a wearable device. It’s a new category of interaction sensor, running at 60GHz; one that can capture motions of your fingers at resolutions and speeds that haven’t been possible before—up to 10,000 frames per second. To get there, the team had to reinterpret traditional radar, which bounces a signal from an object and provides a single return ping. From a hardware and computation perspective, this would have been challenging to recreate on a small scale. So to capture the complexity of hand movements at close range, Soli illuminates the whole hand with a broad radar beam, and estimates the hand configuration by analyzing changes in the returned signal over time.

The team built the first prototype, a 5x5mm piece of silicon, in just 10 months. They’re working on finalizing the development board (prototype) and software API for release to developers later this year. Watch Ivan Poupyrev, Technical Project Lead, talk about the project at I/O here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpbWQbkl8_g&feature=youtu.be&t=10m15s

You can reach out to the team at projectsoli@google.com if you’d like to get involved. Watch the video to meet the team and learn more.  #ATAP #ProjectSoli
