Comment Re:Pricing is the big hurdle (Score 1) 365

I'm with you there, GryMor. Baen's Webscriptions service is awesome. I've bought dozens of E-books from them in the past year. Zero DRM, and I don't need to worry about misplacing books :). The books are also a few bucks cheaper than print. Now they just need to get some more publishers to buy in to the concept.

Submission + - Virtual kayaking

Roland Piquepaille writes: "According to Technology Review, researchers at Hokkaido University have developed a new way to create the feel of flowing water in two 3-D virtual-reality simulations, one for fishing and another for kayaking. Mimicking fluids is a difficult task using the complex Navier-Stokes equations. And these equations need to be running constantly to keep pace with the ever-changing movement of water. As this involves lots of computational power, real-time simulations have been limited to 2-D up to now. So, these new 3-D real-time simulations are using special tricks by doing some calculations in advance of the simulation. But read more for additional references about this research on haptics."
