  • Leonard Nimoy, ‘Star Trek’s’ Spock, Dies at 83

    Like many, I grew up with Star Trek and learned many great lessons. Leonard Nimoy was a great person outside of the context of Spock, of course, but his portrayal of the Vulcan science officer on the USS Enterprise, a being conflicted by deep irrational inclinations (like emotion), held at bay by strict logic, speaks to so much about being human. I never met Leonard Nimoy, sadly, but it's pretty clear that there was a lot of him in the character he brought to life. Every afternoon after school, sitting alone at home watching Star Trek provided so much more meaningful education than the classroom.

    RIP Leonard.

  • new info around Midori team

    @felix9: Indeed. There is a lot of amazing work going on in MSR, at all times!

  • new info around Midori team

    @felix9: Autobahn sounds quite intriguing. Galen, of Singularity and Drawbridge fame, is awesome. David is a monster engineer. Very cool.  

    Hopefully, C9 will get a chance to dig into what they're doing, once they make some progress worth sharing publicly.

  • Windows Store app won't certify, trying to debug the dump

     Why don't you use windbg? Did you read the article you pointed to? :)

  • Hololens ideas.

    If you build it, they will come.

    Did you hear that?

    What?

    Make it happen by making it happen, man.

    (Channeling Jamie :) Jamie! How are you?)

    We love you, felix!

  • HoloLens

    @magicalclick: Well, designing experience is the business of solving actual problems that people face in some meaningful context (holographic experiences for managing air conditioning controllers (Nest, even), seems like a solution looking for a problem. You can already talk to your thermostats and refrigerators. That said, holographic communication is now a realistic input model).

  • HoloLens

    @brian.shapiro: Meaning no need for peripheral device attached to head? That's been around for awhile, and this includes an input model, but this is far from the HoloLens capabilities of accurately sensing the analog in multiple contexts, controlling holograms, sharing the physical experience with other analog systems.

    I guess you could conceivably build HoloLens capability into a table computing device (or some other physical construction, like a room...) with cameras and Kinect-like sensors, CPU, GPU, HPU, RAM, SSD, projectors, and Windows 10.

  • HoloLens

    @magicalclick: step away from the computer, get some fresh air, man :)

    This is all about analog experience, where digital construction drives the human centered side effects. Alex Kipman says it all in his Wired interview: "...the analog universe has a fundamentally different rule set." 

    Alex would be a great C9 guest. Lightbulb?

  • Just another "thank god it's a Nokia" moment

    I have a video I shot with a 920, held close to an evolving pattern of red hot coals one Summer evening last year. I should post it. (That said, given that I was doing such a thing, state of mind should be taken into consideration when watching...). Needless to say, the phone was fine. We use it today in our device lab :)
