I watched the demo, and my first thought was that this tool could easily be adopted to on-line code reviews. The initial wave would be the source, and then comments could be added at any point in the source. If I change a bit of code to show how I think it should be done. The playback feature would allow another reader to see what the code was before I made my change. They showed a lot of plug-ins (did they call them gadgets?) One of these could allow a way to link the message to the real file in a code editor (or maybe link to a source code control repository) so the author could hop back and forth between the wave and the source, with possibly a way of selecting a piece of the text in the wave and with one click "make this into a comment in the code" I think something like this will convert engineers faster than embedded video and ability to play games inside the wave. But man, it is still a cool demo.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
