@Sheetal.Pandey: Nice to see cool stuff. Keep it going.

Thansk for the kind words -- I will certainly try to do so -- the trick is to keep on finding the "gems" out of all the .... "non-gems" :-)

@Garcia: By the way... It's just me or reading about a scientist called Lukin speaking about buiding light sabers is a bit funny -- maybe Lukin is a relative of Luke ;-)

It's amazing how many of these little coincidences are around us, isn't it?

@Garcia: WOW. I've been staring at both Monty Python meets Star Trek with the mouth wide open... these are one of the freakiest videos I've ever seen!!


They are even better if -- like me -- you saw the original TV series. I never really liked the films all that much, but the TV program (at the time) was the most amazing thing a lot of us had ever seen -- it really opened one's eyes to the possibilities for the future.

It's also strange that so many of the technologies depicted in the original program have come to pass -- like the clam-shell flip-open communicators, for example -- do these remind you of some cell phones from around 10 or 15 years ago?

@Max.."Ths is one of those videos that I can watch over and over again."

Too right, very clever stuff.  I initially thought the canvases were huge TV screens, till I watched the video on how it was done.  It did not say much about where the projector was, I'm still intrigued about that.  And how did they get the projection only on the screens and not on the back wall (thought there were times I thought it did get there)?  Pity it was not in colour, I think that would be awesome.

Massive photon molecules?? Physics keeps moving so fast these last years... now we have to wait until some other labs reproduce the experiment before starting to dream with purely photonic materials.

By the way... It's just me or reading about a scientist called Lukin speaking about buiding light sabers is a bit funny -- maybe Lukin is a relative of Luke ;-)

WOW. I've been staring at both Monty Python meets Star Trek with the mouth wide open... these are one of the freakiest videos I've ever seen!! LOL

By the way, thank you for sharing some clips from the age in that William Shatner and company were all young guys and gals. I've only seen a couple of Star Trek movies -- The Final Frontier (1989) and The Undiscovered Country (1991) -- and some scenes in which Shatner was depicted as an action hero seemed to unrealistic to me -- I specially remember one in which Kirk was climbing a huge vertical wall very much in the same way Tom Cruise did in Mission Impossible ;-)

I thought nearly the same about some lieutenant Uhura scenes in these movies... now I'm starting to understand, but I'm a Spanish gentleman and I prefer not to comment that ;-P

....or, as we asay in Aussie, cool bananas.   Your usual eclectic mix of stuff I don't need to know taking up too much of my non-existent spare time Max.  Love it! :-)

Bill Bailey's take on Kraftwerk and the hokey cokey was great.  I still have my vinyl of Kraftwerk's "Autobahn" which I used to love, but these days I find them a bit....pretentious is too strong, just strange.

Our Brian Bailey isn't related to Bill is he?? :-)

@Caleb: That projection mapping video is quite impressive. Especially when you consider that the camera is also moving during many of these shots.

Ths is one of those videos that I can watch over and over again.

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 todayís commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
