3d camera ready soon?

Stanford researchers cram 12,616 tiny lenses into a 3D camera

The system works by focusing each lens above four different overlapping sensor arrays, which work in concert to determine depth -- just like your eyes. Unlike similar systems, the Stanford rig is able to use that data to create a depth map without lasers, prisms, or even complex calibration, which will allow the team to shrink the tech down to compact and cellphone camera size.

Metal plastic! You got to see this!

ScienceDaily () -- Polymer chemists have created a flexible, indestructible material, called metal rubber, that can be heated, frozen, washed or doused with jet fuel, and still retain its electricity-conducting properties. To make metal rubber, chemists and engineers use a process called self-assembly. The material is repeatedly dipped into positively charged and negatively charged solutions. The positive and negative charges bond, forming layers that conduct electricity. Uses of metal rubber include bendy, electrically charged aircraft wings, artificial muscles and wearable computers.

Wireless Networks That Build Themselves

ScienceDaily (2008-03-14) -- From traffic lights to mobile phones, small computers are all around us. Enabling these 'embedded systems' to create wireless communications networks automatically will have profound effects in areas from emergency management to healthcare and traffic control. Networks of mobile sensors and other small electronic devices have huge potential. Applications include emergency management, security, helping vulnerable people to live independently, traffic control, warehouse management, and environmental monitoring.

OMG! Family tie 20 year reunion on NBC!!

I am watching my favourite show and the stars right now - Family tie is having a re-union after 20 years. Family tie has to the best show ever! I just love the show and the cast in it, they were so enjoyable to watch and believable as a real family.  Of course it is no doubt it was Michael J Fox that made the show the way it was. The other characters were very good as the support cast to carry the story along. Seeing them together after 20 years is breath taking for me. It is for you too?

Wow! wow! wow!

Java on hardware - wow!

The has just release the Java on Processor (JOP) in GPL. This is a milestone for opensource community. If this is taken up by the community we would see more java embeded products.
