Still, a valid point though, a human is pretty warm at 37 degrees centigrade. The rest of the imaging technology may only turn on if something is hot enough. You don't even need to keep the room reasonably cool for that to work (although that would be bad for the machine).
I wonder what the blue screen of death looks like on this thing
I've seen a prototype of something similar to this before. Can't remember what it was called. But it looks like a wonderful idea, although I think its uses are probably quite limited. For example, can you imagine hunching over that thing to do email or surfing the net? As media entertainment, great. But again, I can't see this thing becoming popular until the price comes down. A lot.
No, but it'd probably work fine if it was at a 45 degree angle or something.Originally Posted by joeprogrammer

Anyone else remember that old Dilbert: "Make them reboot after every typo." Close, but unfortunately not that far.
7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*
The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.
Looks gimmicky. But it probably would work nicely on military ships for interactive maps and charts. It would also work well on starships like the Enterprise, but of course, the rest of technology hasn't quite caught up to that yet.
does no-one else think this thing would rule for playing RTS's?

If you program in C++, you need Boost. You should also know how to use the Standard Library (STL). Want to make games? After reading this, I don't like WxWidgets anymore. Want to add some scripting to your App?
