EXCITING! For the past few years I've been working on a robot I invented to map land mine fields that became the basis of my new company Symbiobotics! Here's an article and interview on the INCREDIBLE +Not Impossible website! We're seeking collaborations and sponsorship to take the vision to the next level if you or someone you know is interested!

If you are enjoying the satisfying warmth of a fluffy American flag of freedom over 'The Interview' please behold the far more broad, menacing, and explicitly illegal censorship initiatives Sony itself is vigorously pursuing. If this irritates you please consider donating to the +Electronic Frontier Foundation +Freedom of the Press Foundation! HAPPY almost-NEW YEAR!
