Can't recall if this has been linked before: it's a good discussion of the strengths of FPGAs.

Couple things though: the perspective is a little weird to my eyes, but I think that's because the author has a strong CPU ASIC background.

Also, he depicts the fabric as a flat mesh of LUT+FF (island-style) but modern FPGAs use a mesh of blocks of LUT+FF internally connected with a crossbar.

What you don't get from the video, is that he's the inventor of the hardware and software to control the robot. Very nice!

This is true in the visual arts, but equally true in engineering!
I can't even begin to tell you how invaluable this advise is!

Solved a WiFi problem by switching router to channel 11. Wife replies with a grin: "You fixed it by turning it up to 11!?". I love my wife. :)
