In Part 1 of this who-knows-how-many-parts-there-will-be Retro-Futuristic-Steampunk Technologies mini-series, we focused on one of my favorite display technologies in the form of Nixie tubes. We also featured a photograph showing the main control room of an abandoned power plant in Hungary that—much like your humble narrator—was simply oozing with style. In that photograph, you may … Read More → "Retro-Futuristic-Steampunk Technologies (Part 2)"
From one perspective, I’m not very good in an argument because I can usually see both points of view. Oftentimes, if the argument is between two other persons, I can introduce a third way of looking at things that really gums up the works. Contrariwise, from another viewpoint, I can be great in an argument … Read More → "Retro-Futuristic-Steampunk Technologies (Part 1)"
Robotic innovation and the future of human-machine interfaces take center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Keith McMillen (CEO, Founder - BeBop Sensors) joins me to chat about BeBop’s Intelligent Sensing Technologies which can transform any surface into a touch surface that naturally blends into its environment. We dig into the details of BeBop’s RoboSkin that can provide robots with the sense of touch and discuss why Keith believes that intelligent interfaces will change how we interact with machines in the future. Also this week, I take a closer look at a new robotic learning method called WHIRL developed by a team of researchers at Carnegie Mellon University that could make teaching robots easier than ever before.

Just to increase the fun and frivolity, I pondered the possibility that this … Read More → "Building a Computer, Should You Inadvertently Travel Back in Time (Part 2)"
I was recently introduced to what may be the future (or one future in this slice of the multiverse) of mixed-reality headsets. As a result, I’m currently squirming in my seat squealing in excitement. Now that I come to think about it, this is my usual modus operandi, so I just dispatched the butler to … Read More → "Kura’s AR Glasses are Meta-Droolworthy!"
As I’ve mentioned on a couple of occasions, one of my back-burner hobby projects is writing a book called Wroting Inglish: The Essential Guide to Writing English for Anyone Who Doesn’t Want to be Thought a Dingbat. For example, in my Its vs. It’s column, I noted that “I have engineer friends around the world, … Read More → "Bodaciously Big Brass Balls (or The Royal Order of Adjectives)"
