Just a few things

So, I guess I have a few things to say.

I was recently shown this wonderful, but scary, video of the some new 3d modeling technology that will literally change the face of film, photography and criminal investigations.



I'm pretty intrigued by this technology and probably won't get much of a chance to use it myself, but it's certainly going to push the boundaries of what we can believe from now on.

I guess my second thing that has been on my mind today was the little old place of myspace. It seems like myspace is becoming more and more widely used, but it doesn't seem to really be enhancing its operations at all for the considerable amount of people that are using it. I know that it's free and people can use it to promote themselves, but that doesn't mean that people shouldn't get something more usable than what's provided. In this age of web design I don't think any site should be able to get away with what they do. Myspace should be challenged and criticized as much as our politicians or public institutions.

Crystals


So, the other day at my work we came up with this crazy idea to put some 3d objects into crystal. There is a way of taking a 3d picture of yourself and have it put into a crystal using a laser. I went and did a little looking around and found this cool site where this person puts mathematical objects into crystal. SUPER COOL!!

I just saw this TEDtalks video on a new multi-touch interface that is going to change the world...
It is the technology that is part of the new iPhone...

I should also apologies for my incorrect statement that the iPhone was at CES...it was of course at MacWorld.

more to come later....just go check it out.

Apple oh apple


So, today I was just surfing the good old net and spotted that Apple announced their new iPhone. I'm trying not to like that company too too much, but they deserve credit some times.

http://www.apple.com/iphone/

It looks to be pretty damned sexy. I'm supper in love with the use of tilt sensors to re-angle the screen for the user.

This is part of the whole Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that's on this week in Las Vegas.
I'm excited to hear what else is up and about.
