Your Car Will Tell You How To Hit the Next Green Light

Stele Re:Auto-move on green (364 comments)

I was specifically thinking of the people behind the first car in line, in this case. There is always some dumb delay after each car starts moving - obviously this would only kick in after the first car starts moving. When I'm first at a light, I always spend the entire time scanning for people and cars doing dumb things, as well as anticipating the light turning green.

Your Car Will Tell You How To Hit the Next Green Light

Stele Auto-move on green (364 comments)

On the flip side, I was sitting at a light the other day (in Florida, which has the longest lights in the world) thinking how great it would be if all cars sitting at a red light were somehow forced to start moving at once when the light turns green. It seems I'm the only person who understands that eventually the red light will turn green. This would allow many more cars to make it through each cycle.

Religion Is Good For Your Brain

Stele Stress relief (529 comments)

One way to reduce stress is through prayer.

Sex and alcohol work pretty well too. And they are arguably a lot more fun.

Laser Headlights Promise More Intense, Controllable Beams

Stele Re:..you'll be able to scream, 'fire the lasers!'" (376 comments)

I find Lexus drivers to be more annoying than BMW drivers, at least around here. I've always wanted to ask one if they had to pay extra for their "Asshole Card" or if they get it free with the car.

New Oculus Rift Prototype Features Head Tracking, Reduced Motion Blur, HD AMOLED Display

Stele Re:never gonna happen (156 comments)

The resolution could use some improvement (and has for the real release) but the tracking is AMAZING. It really feels like you are immersed completely in a 3D world. It works best in environments where your movement is decoupled completely from vision (driving and flying simulators). I've never experienced motion sickness in my entire life but 20 minutes in Half Life got me feeling quite queezy.

Carmakers Keep Data On Drivers' Locations From Navigation Systems

Stele Grammar (189 comments)

Am I the only one who read that as the car makers are somehow not letting the nav system know the driver's location?

Program to Use Russian Nukes for US Electricity Comes to an End

No wonder. A program to do this would never work. This is clearly a hardware problem.

New Operating System Seeks To Replace Linux In the Cloud

Stele Re:a C++ kernel (335 comments)

Fortunately, with C++ you aren't required to use any particular feature, and don't pay a penalty for anything you don't use.

Furthermore, the alleged performance penalties that a lot of C programmers think exist in C++ actually don't.
