Here comes the Future!

I love new technologies and gadgets that make me feel like we are in the future
here are a few i just found out about

Hitachi EMIEW Robot

The Driverless Car!

Here is a ripped off description from another site
"CHANGCHUN, China — At its hometown show last week, China's First Auto Works wowed the locals with a demonstration of what was described as the country's first unmanned vehicle — not counting spacecraft, of course.

The vehicle in question was a specially modified version of FAW's Hongqi (Red Flag) HQ3 sedan, which was unveiled last year as a concept and bears a startling resemblance to the Toyota Crown Majesta, not to mention an older Hyundai XG350.

FAW tested the driverless sedan at speeds of up to 37 mph but said the car can actually reach a top speed of 93 mph. The demonstration took place at the Northeast Asia Investment and Trade Expo here, according to the Shanghai Daily.

According to the newspaper, the specially equipped HQ3, which monitors the road via two onboard cameras and receives its instructions from a computer, "has a strong ability to recognize the environment around it and tackle turnoffs [and] street crossings, as well as broken lines instantly. It's also able to adapt to changes of driving attitude and natural lighting, as well as shadows of trees and bridges."

I will Try to keep posting cool things i find on the net!
stay tuned

Boy? Girl?

This coming Thursday, Jennifer has an ultrasound , she will be 20weeks by then
and hopefully we will find out if we will have a boy or a girl.

I cant say what i would like more.. only because i dont know. sometimes I hope its a boy.. sometimes a girl.. but in the end it doesnt really matter. i really hope its healthy and normal (normal for us)

I did feel quite jealous when our friends Becca & Drew told us they were having a boy (they are about 2 weeks more pregnant then Jen & I)

anyways I will keep you posted. its exciting and i cant wait to find out.. and i hope i actually find out. We will try and get a video of the ultrasound and maybe i will post it online

Stay Tuned

If i could change the world

If I could change the world. Here is what I would do.

I would encourage the building of a space elevator. To make space tourism possible.

Provide high speed wireless free internet access to the world.

Fund the genetic engineering of crops that wont die or atleast need little water so that they can grow in dry places.

Spread food and wealth around the world. So that there is no more 1st, 2nd and 3rd world countries.. everyone is equal.

Make English the language of the world (questionable), but still encourage a hertitage language.

Make cigarettes illegal. Stop manufacturing. Huge fines. Taxes, destroy any remaining stockpiles.

Encourage fuel cell. And fully electric vehicles.

Try to stop using fossil fuels whenever possible.

Encourage the thought that . more research is better then the cheaper way out.

Build a space ship to explore our solar system

Encourage research on alternate forms of space propulsion.

Colonize the moon and mars. (begin terraforming mars)

Develop robots to assits that can help us do anything.

Encourage working from home

Build communities that are as self sustained as possible. So that lots of travel isn’t necessary

Make all homes have solar panels. So they can power the world energy grid or use it..

Make a typical work week from Tuesday – Friday – 10am – 4pm

Make apple computers the one and only choice :P

Bring back start trek. With a new episode every week.

Make it so if you are convicted of a crime. Like murder or rape. You are sentenced to life in prison. By life I mean.. in jail until you die. Or are given the choice of death after 20 years in prison

Create a GPS network 1000 times more accurate and able to work anywhere (in buildings, forests or underground or underwater) and have it intergrated into all vehicles. Watches, cell phones, homes, planes or anyting else that’s mobile that could use the functionaility

Make amusement parks free.
