Oregon man given 30 day jail sentence for collecting rain water on his own land

loftarasa Bullshit (2 comments)

I would love to see how the government plans to prove that the water came from the river. I am willing to bet they have secondary reasons for wanting to sue this man, because their claim has just exploded my bullshit meter.

Realtime GPU Audio

loftarasa Re:Yawn (157 comments)

Now that definitely sounds like the most interesting application of this technology. Organic-sounding-artificially-made sound effects.

Halo 3 Confirmed for Fall 2007

loftarasa Re:Yeah sooo (42 comments)

I assume it wouldn't be that hard to enable both pistols on the multiplayer, as long as having an option to disable specific weapons (e.g. the sword). I remember playing Goldeneye on the N64 and that had a greater weapon variety than either Halo.

Start-up MindRDR developing a way to mind-control wearables such as Google Glass

loftarasa loftarasa writes  |  about 3 months ago

loftarasa (1066016) writes "London-based startup MindRDR "is working on a way to control wearable devices like Google Glass with the power of thought", reports Discovery News. Many other companies in the past have announced similar technologies, but failed to live up to the hype. Meanwhile, MindRDR claims their prototype is currently operational, albeit limited to making Google Glass take pictures."

Scientists create never-before-seen, lightsaber-like form of matter

loftarasa loftarasa writes  |  1 year,4 days

loftarasa (1066016) writes "A group of scientists led by Harvard Professor of Physics Mikhail Lukin and MIT Professor of Physics Vladan Vuletic have developed a form of matter by binding massless photons together in a special kind of medium to create "photonic molecules", effectively bringing us a bit closer to a world with lightsabers.

"The discovery, Lukin said, runs contrary to decades of accepted wisdom about the nature of light. Photons have long been described as massless particles which don't interact with each other – shine two laser beams at each other, he said, and they simply pass through one another.

'Photonic molecules,' however, behave less like traditional lasers and more like something you might find in science fiction – the light saber.""
