Comment Seeing planetary orbits in a multiple-star system (Score 1) 48

"The exoplanet orbits the primary star of the system ... The primary star has a new-found binary partner (which the exoplanet does not orbit) and this pair are locked in an orbital dance with a secondary binary..."

Is there a graphical simulation of this? I would love to see this and the other possible planetary orbits that could occur in a multiple-star system.

Comment Please change the whole lens (Score 1) 166

In addition to my bifocals, I also have a pair of "computer" glasses. These have a single prescription focused slightly farther than reading glasses. When working on a computer with two monitors, these allow me to just move my eyes to look at different parts of the screen. With bifocals, I have to move my entire head, which is highly annoying.

If the emPower! glasses could change the whole lens, I could manually turn them on and work on the computer with my head up. When not on the computer, I could turn them off and let the accelerometer select far/near focus based on my head being up/down.

Being ignorant of texting and choosing not to use texting are two very different things.

I personally believe that most adults are far too busy (unfortunately), for the mindless chatter that makes up a large porting of texting. Those adults who need to use texting, simply use it less than teenagers. Those who don't need it, use another form of communications: voice, email, IM, etc.
