Quad-copter assembled!

Managed to capture a few of the in-between pictures. Those props are 8" each, so this is a very, very big quad :). Haven't gotten a chance to fly it yet because of the Great Storm (aka light showers) in the Bay Area. Excelsior!

This man pretends to be a comedian, but in truth he is one of the great philosophers of our time.

This is amazing. It's a physical manifestation of a 3d animation. Next, I want to see a robot Pixar lamp.

It's amazing how much of a difference the presentation of statistics makes.

I almost wish that there were data visualization courses that were required along with statistics courses in undergrad. I think people would get a lot more out of it than just learning how to do hypothesis rejection.
Americans die in smaller portions each year, but what kills us is changing.

This is a nice interview with Google X's Astro Teller. He says that Google X starts by asking of a new project, how is it going to make the world a radically better place?  Self-driving cars, Glass, and Loon. I'd say they're getting pretty good answers to that question.
Astro Teller of Google X, discusses Google's upcoming projects and it's continued search of innovation. Air Date Sun Sep 15 2013 17:00:00 GMT-0700 (PDT). Recent Shows. Archive. Copyright © 2013 Charlie Rose LLC. All rights reserved. Terms & Conditions Privacy policy About the Program.

This is one of the most amazing tech demos I've ever seen. They're able to use treat a projector as a virtual camera by using structured light. This means that you can reconstruct poses of things that the camera couldn't actually observe! Crazy!
