Killing mosquitoes with frik'n LASERS!? Can't WAIT to get one of THESE!
 
This model of a laser bug zapper, which will soon be manufactured in the US, uses a photonic fence to track bugs within a specified area and kill them. The inventors hope it can be used in places like African hospitals to rid them of mosquitos that carry malaria and cause major issues. http://bit.ly/1bfh1Ac

Here's a thing that sounds awesome! It's a different way of constructing a fire place that gives off more heat but only uses 1 tenth the wood. You can find YouTube videos on people using them, but this kick starter shows you how to build them!!

I just installed EFF's new mobile app. Seems they'll send instant alerts when they need help fighting government and big business over reach issues. No idea how much good it will do, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

Dear smartphone users: great news. We’re launching our first-ever EFF mobile app. This app will tell you when there are breaking issues related to digital rights that need your help. You'll get a quick notification and be able to one-click connect to the EFF action center to speak out and help us fight for freedom online.

I've been hoping for a consumer fuel cell for years. This looks to be one of the first to be released at an affordable price. Read more at their website and old Kick Starter campaign.

What happens when fuel cells get so small they can fit into your pocket? This one has 27 patents. Here are a few possible uses for this tech.
The next time your smartphone is running low on power, recharge it with this new fuel cell that weighs about the same as a cup of sugar. In theory, our

Keep speaking out for real Net Neutrality! It's Important!

In spite of the sensationalized title, this is still cool, “By the end of 2015, and sooner when possible, all Harry Potter chocolate products sold at Warner Bros. outlets and through our licensed partners will be 100-percent UTZ or Fair Trade certified.”
Warner Bros. just agreed to hold their cocoa production to higher standards. The activists who lead the campaign? Devoted "Harry Potter" fans.

How are your character animation skills? Good enough for Disney you think? Even if you only answered, "maybe", here's your chance to work on an animated feature film.

I have a need to build and create. Currently, to build games that educate and tools for creating.
Introduction
I've been in the video game development industry since 1995. I've done work on both the technical and artistic sides of the creation process.

In recent years, my interests have pulled me toward the idea of using video games to teach. How cool would it be if games replaced (or heavily supplemented) text books in the class? If students are having fun, I believe they will play (study) longer and retain more.

How about games in the gym? I'd love to play a social game using my exercise bike (flying my peddle powered hang-glider over an enemy village).
Bragging rights
Played "Guitar Hero" on the San Francisco Giants score board!! (well, me and everyone else at the SEGA Christmas party that year).
Education

Decided to treat myself to a message at this location. It was the BEST experience I've had in a LONG time. Was so relaxed afterword that I almost couldn't remember my own name. Audrey is THAT good. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment. But do it early because she is normally booked up at least a full week out.

Got the two meat plate, brisket and ribs with jalapeño slaw and yams. The sides were pretty good but the meat was just so so, IMHO. The brisket texture was fine but didn't really have much of a smoked flavor and the ribs were definitely not falling off the bone (maybe even slightly under cooked). If the owners would care to experience some truly great BBQ, they should check out Little Miss BBQ in Phoenix AZ. I don't mean this as a put down, just as an example of some amazing meat artistry. People regularly wait 2 hours in line for lunch (they open at 11:00 but the line starts forming at about 10:15). Its THAT good (not even exaggerating).

Dropped in here for lunched. Nice flavor for all the dishes I tried. Loved the smoky flavor of one particular dish.

Amazing Small Batch Ice Cream! They are open to the public, but this not an ice cream parlor. This is where they make their many awesomely flavorful products. If stop by, and the owner, Doc, is around, he'll gladly give you a quick tour of his small but growing operation. Do yourself a favor and stop in sometime.
