The Eye Writer guys were at the Open Hardware Summit, their work allowed the graffiti artist Tempt to continue to create after he lost use of his arms and legs to Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Their methods used webcams for eye tracking, while the articles method uses electrical signals from eye muscles http://www.ees.intelsath.com/EES-EOG.pdf

Shut down all the garbage smashers on the detention level!
All the record labels could sell music on-line for a reasonable price?
For all of the technologies they have shut down, they certainly could have assimilated a few.
Still to this day, nothing beat places like mp3downloads.ru (I think that was its name, circa 2001). Pick your songs, download at whatever quality/format you wanted, priced accordingly.
People will legitimately buy something if given a fair and reasonable option.
Most of my disks are 3.5"
Mine is 8" when floppy =)
Grooveshark and Last.fm have a large area of non overlap.
* Last.fm provides a great social aspect to your favorite music, as well as to the band/song bio pages.
* Last.fm's tag/artist/genre stations are great for honing in on what you want to listen to.
* Last.fm has great coverage of indie artists (Especially 8-bit chiptunes)
* Last.fm lets artist songs to be aired in full during streaming, but only sampled for 30 second previews (if they want to sell them for instance)
Grooveshark and Pandora are great for things more mainstream. Soundcloud and Last.fm are hands down the best, for the rest.

I think this is one of its (and these online 3d printers that keep popping up) excel at, custom one-off small scale items. I know some grownups who are addicted to their doll house furniture. The would flip if you showed them Google sketchup's furniture shape library and said 'print out whatever you want'!
