Not much to say today, but we’ve got plenty of the finest CS and engineering links around!
- Read about how nanotechnology and chemical engineering may lead to the end of laundry.
- Especially in the winter when weather gets cold, well-greengineered curtains are important!
- Say what you want about the Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT-IP Act, but read about what some important people have to say. Read the list of people who signed it. These acts will affect your future on the internet and, consequently, your future as an engineer or computer scientist.
- 2011 Frontiers of Engineering: The Evolution of Neuroprosthetics. It’s a long video, but that link will skip straight to the good part
- Read about how NASA is designing a harpoon to collect samples of comets as they fly by. Also watch the video on the page.
- This might be scary if you’re in to internet privacy: a 20-something year old asks Facebook for all the data they’ve collected about him, and gets over 1200 pages.
- Watch this video about how MIT designed a camera that can capture 1,000,000,000,000 frames per second–fast enough to capture individual photons as they travel through space.
