Not only air would have trouble penetrating it. Photons as well ... so it would be rather dark inside. The upside of that might be invisibility, though. Like being pitched into a different universe. Maybe that is how it might work. Although then you'd hope for a benign destination universe - not the center of a sun or a den of saber-tooth tigers. Ah, options, options!

A few inventions Id like to see - press a button and an impenetrable shield forms around your body. If this is impenetrable, will suffication soon follow?

Google glasses for emotions!?...you say you would see who is hurting and helped them...but you would also see all these people that don't like you, are rude inside, find you boring, make fun of you etc...not sure whether the world would be a better place...if that is truly the case we all should be very transparent with our emotions and we are clearly not...Kris

Hey Rick! I already dreamed it up. I'm still in debug. Theory of operation is rather tricky..., P.S. The force field generated emits Extreme UV - requires SPF 50K to operate...,

The solution is simple (for some), just tax the rich corporations. It appears to me that currently there are some who think that the way to distribute money to the public is through the government either in taxes or "give-a ways". Not a new invention mind you but one that is trying to redirect cash flow, economists don't have to scratch their heads any longer, UNLESS they want to come up with a way that works(pun intended).

We don't need to quibble over numbers. The main point is, unemployment has historically been quite low, certainly in the 4 and 5 percent range, in the centuries since the Industrial Revolution began. Even if the number a few years ago was lower than it "should" have been, it's still impossible to rationalize how more and more and more production has been automated in these past centuries, and yet we have unemployment that has not been increasing steadily. People have a funny way of assuming that was is true in this snapshot in time must be true for all time. When the economy was going crazy, with day traders becoming millionaires overnight, the press was having a hay day saying that this was the "new economy." Ridiculous, of course, because it was phoney wealth. But in that short time span, lots of people were fooled. Same now. We have a long recession, being made to last longer by bad government policies, so now we're supposed to believe that this is the result of automation? You wanna bet?

Right on! I'd love to hear any stories about EEs making significant contributions to these crucial areas!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
