I meant notionally, but that's very interesting. I didn't realize the top screen was doing 800*240 all the time regardless of whether it was in 3D mode or not. So this means the parallax barrier can be turned on/off? That's cool, do you have a link that talks about that?
Just to clarify, when you say 'twice' the resolution, you are talking the difference between 320x240 and 452x340 not the difference between 320x240 and 640x480 because that would actually require four times the computation since there would be four times the pixels. So not that this is the point but seems to me like you get more band for your buck going to 3D than going to the slightly higher 2D resolution for the same pixel fill rate.
I somewhat agree but I do believe asshattery is not against the law. In which case, the scientists are really just complaining that people looking for excitement are getting in the way of science. If this is a legitimate safety problem then the scientists should be lobbying the relevant lawmakers to make it a punishable crime to drive towards a tornado unless you have a permit for scientific purposes. Then they should apply for and get said permits and then they would have ever right in the world to complain. Media stories of them complaining may set the ground work for this I guess but it comes off as a little whiny.
The implications of this for net neutrality are important so I'm wondering how this effects the recent court ruling that stated the FCC didn't have the power to regulate them http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_15160454 Does this coming out of committee start the process that will allow a new law which will make the court ruling moot? If so, then hooray!
So I've played piano for many years and what I find myself wondering is, does anyone learn to play piano in this manner, where the actual key to press is the visual cue instead of musical notes? There are many techniques/methods for learning piano and I cannot make up my mind if this is an approach that may translate into useful, valid, musical skills. Thoughts?
Do not simplify the design of a program if a way can be found to make it complex and wonderful.
