Germany leads Italy and Japan, which are tied for second place, as the world's leading energy efficiency nations, according to new figures from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy published its 2016 International Energy Efficiency Scorecard this week, now in its third edition. The Scorecard examines the energy efficiency policies and

The AR/VR headset that I want, but can't get yet has the following features:

VR display with dual outward-facing RGBIR cameras for AR applications

To allow for full VR as well as "see-by-wire" AR.


dual-using those cameras for Leap Motion-like hand-tracking

Using hands allows for complex interaction, virtual keyboards, all sorts of 2D and 3D GUIs. This would become the secondary UI in this setup. Can't be primary, because "gorilla arms".


high quality gaze-tracking (probably using inward-facing cameras)

Important for advanced rendering of 3D content in VR glasses.
Also the primary interface-element, replacing the mouse-pointer.

Notice: just looking at something to "select" it is more natural than using your hand to move an object (mouse or other controller) which moves a virtual object (pointer) ...


a few (2-7) dry EEG-electrodes in the upper lip of the headset

Most importantly this would be used for a "mouse-button", tracking the activity of the muscles below your eyebrows.

Notice: this can give you a faster "click" with less actual muscle usage than the usual use of a left finger on a left mouse-button.

"So you have a choice. Vote for a "corrupt" status quo candidate or an arsonist who will burn the whole place down. I choose status quo because you can still fight the system after the election. If you let the system be burnt to the ground there's nothing left."

I agree.
It sucks, but that's life.
Charges of “election corruption” and “democracy lost” have been made by various watchdog organizations in this current election cycle. This is an important

Trump is worse than Hillary.
And you are worse than many Trump supporters.

Seriously. This is a nightmare for the USA. And you are part of it.

Introduction
I am exploring the currently emerging virtual universe.

Web3D, brain-computer-interfacing, digital morphogenesis and evolutionary artificial intelligence are my favorite fields.

I consider culture, science and technology to be results of memetic evolution.
