Streaming black boxes would have solved both Malaysian Air flight mysteries.
Given that a low end cell phone charger is about 2 watts, 1 watt would be a fair performance assumption for that 50cmÂ unit. That gives us an approximate 8 watts per mÂ. Scaling up, this means that a cube 5 metres on a side will generate a kilowatt of electricity.
False. Water memory, a form of homeopathy, has been around since 1796, long pre-dating understanding of molecules. The idea of water memory comes from people who start with a conclusion, and grab random scientific jargon to supply "evidence". It's like science, but backwards and nonsensical. The specific "facts" people use to sell their fake cureall potions change over the years depending on what scientific buzzwords are popular at the time.
You took the words right out of my keyboard... but then I did a quick web search, and found quite the prior art going back to at least 1974.
Volume and mass do not matter as much as surface area. This is an ecological win. The enclosed area will also mean less evaporation, so more green spaces and more efficient use of fresh water supplies. This is a win, at least in theory.
I bet BlackBerry never had one.
Since you seem to have a history of funding and helping fledgling new technologies, can you say which ones you are supporting now? Also, would you support mine? (Yeah I know it's a long shot, but hey, I have to try.)
A new 360 degree video capture method? Or the same old method, done again? I read the article and I can't think of what's new about this method. Now a spherical CCD would be new and interesting. It's a nice system, but new method?
Give a kid an expensive pile of toys, and way more adult help than is admitted in the article, and then pretend to amaze everyone on Slashdot. This kid isn't special in the least, he's just been set up by a tiger dad or mom. Big fucking deal.
Agreed. In this case I think NASA may be the short sighted one. "Maintaining capability" is something that has value, even when it's not used. I had a knee jerk reaction when I read the headline, but upon contemplating, I find myself agreeing with the senator who's getting the pork. Sometimes wrong people do the right things for the wrong reasons.
I wish someone would fund my robot invention. The profit in this industry is stupidly crazy for the right design. Alas I don't have the business skills to go along with my technical skills.
I don't live in the USA either. But I don't feel safe. He's being fairly truthful that he's not breaking any laws in the USA. But what laws prevent him from doing all sorts of nasties to people outside the USA, including close allies like Canada? I get the feeling that they have a "no hold barred" attitude even to allies.
It's a Quebec company... they're fucked. It's like hiring a "European" company which just happens to be run out of Sicily. They're so stupidly corrupt there, that I can honestly say they deserved it.
I have a much better version of this that's immediately suitable for commercial and industrial apps. I suck at the funding part. Anyone want to donate or be an angel investor?
You had me until your last line. You actually believe that people in the southern hemisphere are somehow morally superior?
