Links from the Gregg zone

1) Let’s start this week off with a new take on one of my favorite subjects, the flying car. Seems there is a Dutch company with a new offering in the field. This looks to be a possible player in the next few years. They are hoping to bring it to market in “the next few years” it is a car/gyrocopter hybrid, with a projected range of 375 miles on the road, and 340 in the air, at speeds of 120 mph on the road or in the air. I would like to see one of these in my driveway some day. It’s a very nice looking unit, I suspect they will be in some countries fairly soon, probably decades before we see them in the states though.

2) Have you ever wondered how cool it would be to work for someone making way to much money? Well here is a link to a video about what it is like to work at Google, I think I might be able to cope, might even put in some overtime, hell might just move in.

3) This is my tech link for the week, I am not into cell phones but if I were, this would be a very interesting product. It is a head set, that turns your phone into a “bone phone”. What makes it so innovative? It picks up sound from the bones in your head. When there is no transfer of sound from your mouth to the microphone, there is no background sound. It eliminates restaurant chatter, no traffic noise, and any other background interference.

4) Now for a great reading site for anyone interested in world mysteries. I wound up here looking for an answer to a question that has been bugging me for a long time. I have been wondering, why the lack of any soot in the pyramids? I was looking for information on the “Dendra Lamps”, as a possible explanation. When I hit this site, I was stuck for an hour or two, and I plan to revisit again soon.

5) Last a short video from Corning, the glass company. This is a lesson about surface tension, I thought it was interesting, I had no idea this could happen. I suggest you just watch it, I doubt many out there knew about this.
