"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
I'm in your garbage file, more so when you plug me into the ground.

<@sri> http://www.io2technology.com/ # eeep, WANT!!!1
<@sri> really wonder how it works
< bda> sri: Welcome to your cyberpunk future!
< omega> sweeet
<@gabb> It's the time of the day when sri is reading his techgeek news.
<@sri> indeed
<@sri> heliodisplay will rule the world
<@sri> it even works interactive as a touch screen
<@gabb> Price tag ?
<@sri> 18k
< bda> haha.
< bda> There are videos.
<@sri> 28k for a 41inch one
<@gabb> That's not too expensive.
<@gabb> At the university labs I work at we got smartboards that cost 10k.
<@gabb> 10k for the smartboard + another 10k for the NEC vertical beamer, then I rather get myself this thing.
<@sri> and it's just a preview product
<@sri> they are working with "big enterprises" and military on mass market stuff
<@gabb> The military application video rocks.
< bda> Eh.
< bda> It isn't interactive. It just spins a tank around.
* bda wanted to see them simulate a targeting system. :)
* gabb watches bda asking for the GUI from "hackers".
<@gabb> ;D
< bda> "Type cookie, you moron!"
