I'm not sure you're entirely correct here. I think you're right that "average" people won't be able to do good 3D design, but I'm seeing more and more gallery sites open with very interesting 3D models available for free. I think there's a good analogy to the early computer industry. We had very few users that weren't power users, because it was a pain to learn. But then, more and more people created interesting software and the hardware advanced and it became cheaper and easier to get involved (thanks to shareware, freeware, hardware clones, etc.), and now we've got these crazy pocket computers with amazing apps for $.99. I think 3D printing and production may follow a similar adoption model, we're just in the early-adopter, hobbyist, hardcore geek phase now.
What might a 3D printer do with material to build a robot powered by a Raspberry Pi?
I think this idea really matches what I see in a lot of young gamers now. If you've spent any time on Minecraft lately, you'll find a tremendous diversity of play styles and server types. Having a professionally produced, nicely scaling MMORPG that the players can bring their creativity to, could provide a nice market for them.
How about a source for your temperature claim? I claim the opposite: Anthropogenic Global Warming is occurring. Here's two sources:
I loved Discs of Tron. I was pretty young, but it seemed to me one of the earliest games with multi-dimensional simulation and control (spinng the wheel back and forth, pushing it up/pulling it down, moving around the disc). Definitely one of my favorite games!
I feel very similar, but for me, it's not just the lyrics, but whether or not I have chosen the songs. If I've chosen the songs and know the lyrics and what's happening, I can totally ignore them. If someone else is play music, it distracts me because I'm trying to figure it out or understand it.
And the kids get to play Minecraft on a legitimately performing computer, so they don't complain, right?
Look, if you want to get paid to program, you're going to need to know something about the business or organization you work in. In a ton of cases, that means knowing some accounting, organizational structure, and the actual goals of the business. For anyone who can actually program, that should be too hard.
What companies are working on an implantable version of this device?
What technology would be required for that to work? Wireless power charging, skin port for med refills, PAN (personal area network) for reporting, blood vessel graft or passthrough, anti-rejection coating, what else?
I think you need to raise your billing rate, if you have to put up with that shit, it should be making you a pile of cash!
She might check with the local cable companies - some of them have very short turnaround for install/de-install (my local Charter can bring up home cable Internet in 24-48 hours usually). She might not be able to get the best price, because she won't want to sign a contract, but it beats going to a fast "food" restaurant for network access.
This is one of my favorite things about using Juniper - they have the commit rollback option, so if you truly hose your network connection, it will fail back to the last working after using the new configuration for a specified amount of time (lowest I've ever used was 1 minute).
Wait, hold on, I've magnified it a billion times:
Still entirely invisible. Fuck this topic.
I wonder if the same technology might be used to help clear runways and airspace around busy airports? I know that bird strikes are extremely expensive on commercial airliners, this might be a cheap alternative.
"Ummmm, yeah, I'm going to ask you to come in on Saturday."
