The whole point of such a person would be, they are not showing symptoms,so how the duck are you going to find them?
That's what we got religion for:
No matter what 'we' realize, there will alwas be enough people wo believe something completely different for no reason, to keep the system going.
There are still other resources needed to produce other than work.
Such as raw materials and energy.
But work is the only resource most humans have to offer in exchange.
But... uhm... you need free light to 'see'.
So how could you see the light while it is still traveling inside the glass?
I wonder how this could be even possible.
My car for example becomes absolutely hysteric if I place something on the passenger's seat, but do not plugin the safety belt.
Loud warning noises over the speakers, blinking front display, getting increasingly urgent/annyoing if I do not prombtly react.
Same reaction if I leave the driver's seat with the key still in the ignition, too.
And this is a middle class Opel Astra.
Yet this car with all its automation is oblivious to the empty driver''s seat?
Which does not answer the question what the X stands for either, now does it?
Your product name must be at least 8 characters long, contain at least 1 of each of these: upper case letter, lower case letter, number, unprintable symbol, smilie-face, must not have meaning in any language and sound kind of cute."
Couldn't they have just redefined the acronym?
'Xenon Based Media Center'.. something something... It does not have to make sense. Just shorten it back to XBMC. There. No more trademark violation.
We don't even know what the X in xbox stands for either. No one cares.
But Notepad(++) is pretty good...
Both Xbox and PS3 could store more than 10GB of music and neither costs 2500$+ per unit.
If the paid royalities to someone, it can't be close to those numbers.
How do I feed it parts?
I can see two rolls kind tucked to the side there, with tape just loosely hanging out. Would it somehow take parts out of those?
What about designs with lots of different parts?
Parts that don't come on rolls (this is about small numbers and prototypes after all)?
How much time goes into preparing all the parts for pick up?
Hey, easy now!
Scientists are humans too.
I only need a 3D printer in rare occasions, which does not justify buying one.
So I would like to get easy access to one.
Take a better, faster, more expensive printer.
Put it in a vending machine like case and sell the printing service by time/volume maybe?
Couple it with a 3d scanner, so I can scan in some part I need copied / remade right there. But also make it possible to remotely queue jobs and then pick them up at the store later when they're finished.
I am imagining somthing like a postal package station, only the stuff you can pick up is being made right inside the machine.
I think I've seen those in the local deli.
The computer in the watch can do that, no biggie.
The key is user interface and that seems unlikely.
