From Russia With Love

Saddle up comrades, we’re heading over to the mighty land of Russia. In our first story, we’re delving into the sci-fi-esque details of the “2045 Initiative”, examining how they plan on achieving human immortality by 2045, and investigating the inner workings of their first android prototype “Alissa”. Then, in another Russia-related story, we look into a new software-for-chartity fundraiser launched by Excelsior Software and tell you how you can participate in this program. Also this week, I interview Rob Frissel (Atmel) about the most recent advances in touchscreen technology for laptops and notebooks, how LCD noise comes into play, and how soon we can use these new technological advances in our own designs.

I’ve got another LX9 Spartan-6 Microboard (courtesy of Xilinx) to give away this week but you’ll have to listen to find out how you can enter to win.
