It's not an invention as such but has anybody seen that film The Running Man? This holds a frightening resembalance.

Via BoingBoing: A family in Ft. Myers, FL is living in a 32 floor highrise, yet they are currently it's only residents. I wonder how many homeless people there are in Ft. Myers. http://www.boingboing.net/2009/08/03/living-in-a-massive.html

Another story via /.: An expedition is being made to an artificial island in the Pacific composed entirely of floating plastic debris. The island is purported to be roughly the same size as the state of Alaska. http://news.slashdot.org/story/09/08/05/010238/Expedition-To-Explore-an-Alaska-Sized-Plastic-Island

Hey there. I just joined this community, specifically to post the following:

I just woke up from a dream about a new type of photographic paper that could be developed into pictures where the colors were raised slightly from the surface and had different textures according to color and light density. Example: white = smooth & glossy to black being rough and nubbly. Red was slightly elevated and purple was more so and a little rougher in texture. The end result being that a blind person could "read" a photo with their fingers and (with training) be able to tell the color and shape of the object(s) the photograph depicted.

The dream was so vivid that upon waking I went online to see if anything out there was even close to this idea. I didn't find anything but then - I am not a photographer, so I wouldn't know where to look. Is there any way something like this would work? Is there a reactive emulsion or paper that might cause this kind of picture to develop?
Or am I barking mad, as usual?

Any ideas/comments/assistance will be muchly appreciated. Thanks!

How to, and NOT to revolutionise transport. [Jun. 29th, 2009|11:48 pm]

First how to. One of the best future car concept designs I've ever seen!

Second how NOT to. Does this remind anyone else of the floating sunloungers from Wall-E?

*EDIT* Apparently this is just a product concept at first I thought it was all worked out and ready to sale in a year or something.*EDIT*

"A lone group of Swiss scientists have been using scattered LEDs, neural circuity, and an army of miniature robots to explore the very basis of good and evil.  No, you aren't reading the back cover of a DVD in the "one dollar each, please get this trash out of our store" bin of your local blockbuster -this research is very real and very, very awesome."

A detailed simulation of a small region of a brain built molecule by molecule has been constructed and has recreated experimental results from real brains.
