The Wankel rotary engine is a fascinating piece of hardware but it has a few weaknesses:

On a HD somewhere, maybe. '07 was prior to the ubiquity of the smartphone. It has a 3" long exhaust pipe, no muffler, and is peripheral ported. During engine MOCs you could spend time hooking it to a test fixture, or chock it with sandbags and you and your buddy's legs and murder your hearing. With muffs AND plugs, it still hurt.

I'll be interested in seeing this:
 
YouTube will livestream Google’s AI playing Go superstar Lee Sedol in March

Google will provide YouTube livestreams of its artificial intelligence (AI) software playing games of the ancient Chinese board game of Go against Lee Sedol, the highest ranked Go player in the world. Demis Hassabis, head of the Google DeepMind lab behind its AlphaGo AI system, announced the news today in a tweet.

Who will write a classic novel about this game, I wonder?
 
 
Physicists discover new properties of superconductivity!

"New findings from an international collaboration led by Canadian scientists may eventually lead to a theory of how superconductivity initiates at the atomic level, a key step in understanding how to harness the potential of materials that could provide lossless energy storage, levitating trains and ultra-fast supercomputers.

Professor David Hawthorn, Professor Michel Gingras, doctoral student Andrew Achkar, and post-doctoral fellow Dr. Zhihao Hao from University of Waterloo's Department of Physics and Astronomy have experimentally shown that electron clouds in superconducting materials can snap into an aligned and directional order called nematicity."

Another beautiful song by my friend Shelley:
 
Last year in the US I performed in New Orleans at the PinChurch for Mystic Krewe. The PinChurch is an amazing venue, filled with Pinball machines and beautiful people coming together to appreciate pinball, each other's company + live music. The videos from the evening are still being put together but here is the first offering: 

My latest single 'Background Noises'

Scientists have made a breakthrough in physics. They succeeded in transporting heat maximally effectively 10,000 times further than ever before. The discovery may lead to a giant leap in the development of quantum computers.

While laser cutting remains the dominant force for rapid prototyping anything made of plastic, MDF or wood, the real holy grail is the ability to cut metal — something most laser cutters are just not capable of. In the industry, this is done using…

Done!
The 18th and final primary mirror segment is installed on what will be the biggest and most powerful space telescope ever launched. The final mirror installation Wednesday at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland marks an important milestone in the assembly of the agency’s James Webb Space Telescope.

At this point I live in fear of having to visit bookstores. I just can't afford to rent the next apartment, knock down the wall, and build a library. Even if I'd love too...

Great place for a decent meal; seems their baked beans machine is on the fritz fairly often the last couple of months, though.
