I recently read Mary Shelley's Frankenstein for the first time and then was reading a lot of Poe. It got me wondering whether the two ever met (apparently not) and then wondering whether Poe might have read Frankenstein and been influenced by it. What if Poe was a Frankenstein fan-boy (to use modern vernacular)? Those musings morphed into this:

"Poe’s Lost Letter to Mary Shelley"

What a cool shot!

Pun intended
Icehouse.
I traveled 10,000 miles for this.
Just to be in negative-20C air on the shore of a frozen lake..
Just to see a world where waves freeze as they fall to earth.
Just to experience this brutal and timeless world of ice and snow...

It was everything I hoped for, and more.

 Steve Gibson giving more technical detail.

Wow what a cool technology! I don't agree with Steve Gibson that this will replace the desktop mouse (maybe a laptop touchpad if done intelligently). However, I think it will find many potential applications in the embedded space. The video shows adjusting the minutes and seconds on the watch, which is a good example. If the technology works well in situations where the user is wearing gloves (medical, harsh climate) then this technology will see a lot of interesting uses.
