1) Okay, I like it when I can start with a double header. The guys at M.I.T. have sure visited the Gregg Zone on a lot of occasions in the past, and now they are in focus again. It seems they have come up with a portable desalination plant that can be easily shipped into disaster zones, or anyplace else they wish. I am sure the military is interested since clean water is heavy and hard to transport. http://www.reuters.com
2) This one I found made me think instantly of Earl, air bags have been around for a while now so I suppose it was just a matter of time until they were adapted to bicycles. I have mixed feelings on this one, here in Las Vegas wearing anything extra in the summer can be a problem, but then if it saves your life, or quality of life I suppose it would be worth it. http://www.wired.com
3) Now about the whole space thing, if I wanted to go I could… maybe next year. Wow, that sounds like one of those unattainable dreams about the future. While not that long ago it seemed just a little far-fetched for me, if I had the money I could buy a ticket. This is a link to the new space port just completed in New Mexico. Accompanying video is very cool be sure to check out the other video links on the groundbreaking, I was surprised that they finished on time, it took them less than 1 ½ years to complete. http://www.bbc.co.uk
4) It was about 2-3 years ago I was touting the new prototype printers that replicate objects by printing up layers of assorted materials to build an object, instead of print on paper. At that time I was postulating on how many years it would be before I could have one at home. If I was to guess then I do not think my answer would have been about three years. But, it looks like they are going to come out very soon. http://www.telegram.com/
5) For my geek link I ran across this, not sure how many out there are web site builders, or just how well this information was broadcast, but just in case you missed it I thought I would put it up here. Sounds like it could be an expensive trip down a road that could be avoided. http://arstechnica.com
