Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Devices, including Han's (which will be publicly available through the company perspective pixel) use OSC typically implemented over UDP. Most users use VVVV and Java to generate the OSD data from webcams. There is also touchlib, a C++ library for windows.
With Xql in the works, will the multi-touch open source initative catch on in the linux dev world, easily realizing the Han desktop utopia for the end user? And with linux development, will the multi-touch open source translate into increased open source used in embedded systems? The thought of multi-touch devices besides apple's iPhone quickly entering the market via open source initiatives is an invigorating thought, especially if it encourages business to adopt open source practices"
Here's an excerpt. Can you do better?
Skeptic: So tell me, David, what are your views on Mathematics?
David: Mathematical truths cannot be disputed.
Skeptic: You mentioned something about truth. What does it mean for something to be true?
David: For something to be true it must correlate with all other parts of a system.
Skeptic: Please justify your claim that for something to be true it must correlate with all other parts of a system.
[ David has reached the suspension of judgment. He is now tranquil. ]"
I would actually like to suggest a feature for Slashdot that I think is a good idea. There are many question and answer support sites for different technologies, Linux distributions, programming languages, database server software, you name it.
Wouldn't it be cool if Slashdot had one for everything under the sun? I've been Googling my ass off trying to find an answer to an NFS problem with no success. I am thinking of of a page with different categories and subcategories for users to post questions about whatever is bugging them.
Maybe answering and resolving other users questions could count for karma, registered users could create categories, etc...
Maybe it's already been suggested but anyway..."
Why didn't I think of this?"... Both turbocharging and direct injection are preexisting technologies, and neither looks particularly impressive
... by combining them, and augmenting them with a novel way to use a small amount of ethanol, Cohn and his colleagues have created a design that they believe could triple the power of a test engine ...

Ever wished you could talk back to an "interactive" video kiosk ?
Your 2 Cents is an interactive kiosk that you can cozy up to.
An animated talking head will ask you questions about current issues,i.e. "Do you think smoking should be banned from the streets too?" The interviewer not only records your answer, but after you give permission, plays it back — of course, with a little twist. Recorded interviews can be seen on the kiosk screen. Whatever your answers, the effects are amusing. See smoke coming out of your ears as your answer about smoking is played back. Some of the questions are serious, some call for your acting ability, and some ask for your predictions about the future. The project is amusing and a harbinger of art to come.
Your 2 Cents builds on work the artists exhibited at Artomatic 2004 where they met. Philip Kohn, an imaging research scientist at NIH developed facial tracking software used in the playback that enables the computer to add effects to your image. The computer was built by Thomas Edwards a robotic artist, engineer and founder of DC Dorkbot. The interviewer is animated by computer game and fine artist Brian Judy. Development and content is contributed by conceptual/installation artist Claudia Vess.
The computer was built specifically for this project which is funded is part by a New Media grant from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts DC Commission for the Arts."
