I don't think the true "PowerGlove" successor has come yet.

A smart glove like this could turn any ordinary squeeze ball into a chording keyboard. With Google Glass and other similar technologies chording keyboards and wearable tech would work for rapid next input without voice. Anyone that has played GuitarHero knows how a chording keyboard can work.

It would actually be a perfect device for simulating the EPA test cycle. It would be a perfect way to sell it legally. The EPA cycle is "the" test for cars in the US so there are plenty of professionals that would love a tool. Some simulation software starts at $5k/license. (CANalyzer). No one says you have to sell your device with 'encryption' so that the EPA cycle would be replaced with whatever cycle you wanted.

Or you could just do it with a cheap uC board these days. These guys are building a engine EFI controller with a $14 circuit board as the base. Even having to spoof their own messages With an ODB/CAN simulator you could easily

And maybe someone would then finally make a legitimate cheap CAN/ODBBluetooth reader instead of clones of clones or a chip that is ages old to read data as well. USBCAN cables from good vendors start at $500 even though the functionality is built into a lot of new chips.

save time writing 3 versions,

Did I say write 3 versions? Just do all of the JIT compiling NOT on my computer.

JIT to pre-compiled

That's the point. Why are we using the battery power of thousands of tiny little ARM devices to compile something that could have been compiled once?

When you boot your Laptop do you recompile everything just so you can grab the source daily?

So use it like html5 video and have javascript backup.

script x64="uselessWidgetJavascript.x64" x32="uselessWidgetJavascript.x86" javascript="uselessWidgetJavascript.js"

If you lumped 90% of all internet devices on the web they'd probably fall under x86, x64, & ARM.

Additionally Apple has figured out how to do fat binaries.

script type="x64"

I don't want something else that my computer has to interpret. Do all the compiling before it shows up on my computer so that I don't have to deal with this:

Even "JIT" compilers start to suck when you have a few dozen of them running at the same time.

What a bunch of historic garbage.
There are are couple of reason for the why there were laws against images of animals or human.
The first was a law against idolatry.
Then you have had an edict that came out later that drawings where a challenge to allah and that creation was unique to him. There is also some text dealing with artists breathing life into their creations and have to deal with that at the end days. This came out after mohammad death so you find artwork in building, books, statues,etc that was produced between that time.
Some additional restriction have come out just because of tradition.

Lend money to a bad debtor and he will hate you.
