I hope they refunded you.

This is cool and I am very comfortable with my tax dollars supporting it. Ignoring the uses in games and computer animation it's also potentially useful for the design (and construction?) of knitted garments and structures using semi/fully automated processes. Plus, there's a sheep in a wool sweater.

Back-of-the-envelope/wildguess, how much would it cost to design and do a run of 1,000 low-profile, n-key rollover, waved ("ergonomic"), backlit and hackable keyboards?

I'm looking to sell my Nikon F2 + underwater housing + lens + prism, it's an excelent camera. It was used for Navy surveys and is used but the shutter is accurate and it's been well cared for.

The Ubuntu 12.04 beta still has the pox on its login screen. I want to know who thought hard-coding white dots in a grid was a good idea.

What's the story on current AI theory? Do we assume that we're going to create self-aware (super-)human level AI at once? Or do we assume that we'll be able to create conscious, low-intelligence AI that will be able to evolve into super-intelligent robot-overlord AI?

Also, shiny motion capture for a game.

I think we assume sentience is beyond our ability to create, but with clever tricks we can make cool stuff.

Turns out Hobos (the spider) might not be as dangerous as was thought

"... the hobo spider, T. agrestis, is not a spider of medical concern. We have identified the bacteria associated with T. agrestis as ubiquitous environmental fauna and displayed the spider's inability to transfer a pathogenic bacteria. There is little evidence to support the claims that the hobo spider harbors or vectors microbial pathogens. The hemolytic venom assay demonstrates that the spider is incapable of causing severe cellular damage. Finally, the results from the mammalian assay strengthen the hypothesis that the hobo spider does not cause necrotic lesions."

pooping on the sidewalk may have been a ploy to infect people with his parasites

This is cool. Why bother with GPS when all you need is an RTC and a photosensor? Also, how often do you get to put data-logging backpacks on birds?

Introduction
I use science for fun and profit... or fun and employment. I use tech and software to solve interesting field problems, out of curiousity and to make life easier while building my skills to traverse the polar regions in search of adventure and scientific discoveries.
