Precise control of photons and force fields. The ground can be made to act like a tread mill and you don't even know it because all the other fields move like you would expect.

A little bit different but there is a video floating around at a university experimenting with VR. They were working on giving the allusion that you are walking on a straight path but they play with your visuals just enough that they can get you to walk in circles, Was a fairly large room though.

Well considering the only people who identify themselves as 'Americans' (Pronounced: A-mur-i-cans) are United States citizens, I'm going to take a wild guess that he's talking about United States citizens.

Except your wrong, I've talked with some Guatemalans who consider themselves Americans.

And FYI, SparkFun Electronics, one of the companies listed, makes more than $10 million in annual revenue, which is some serious growth for one company in a new field. Couple that with sheer awesome, and you get a powerful combination.

I like SparkFun. I do buy stuff from them, but really they pretty much just a easier to use digikey or newark. Most of their designs that are "open" can be considered an unfavorable type of Open Source, since about all of them have the stipulation that they are not to be used for any commercial purposes. This seriously dampens what could be done with it. I can't take the design and code expand on it into a single board to use for my purposes and use it at work.. Nope unless I want to start from scratch I have to buy their breakout, and run wires. Doesn't quite seem like the open source spirit. Maybe the old unix open source spirit.
