Apo-poly-logies.

May 28, 2010

Ok. I’ve been absent for quite a while. I’ve now graduated from undergraduate which means I’m going to have much more time I can dedicate to this project and hopefully in the future such long hiatuses will not occur.  So, here we go again. I’m also going to try something new by publishing entire chapters of my novel so keep an eye out for that. Until then, stay tuned.

A sneak peak of augmented reality.

This video demonstrates what an augmented reality system could be capable of. While it is still very crude, the idea of integrating digital information into the real environment is showing promise as a new extension of the ubiquitous computer world. For more information, just visit this site.

New cancer treatment uses nanobots to target tumors.

March 22, 2010

A new treatment option for cancer is going into Phase 1 Clinical trials. Using nanobots that swim through a person’s blood stream, targeting only the tumors and not healthy tissue, researchers are giving a new hope to people who would otherwise have to suffer through painful chemo therapy and radiation treatments that make them lose their hair, drop huge amounts of weight, suffer intense nausea, and other terrible side effects. They’ve already demonstrated that the little nanobots can get to the tumors and won’t affect healthy tissue though they still need to check for side effects and what not to make sure it’s safe for humans. Still this is an amazing leap for both nanotech and gene therapy since not only do these nanobots seek out the tumor but they also target genes responsible for tumor growth and expansion.

From cubicle to coffin. Man dead at desk five days before someone notices.

Time to change out the parts.

It is a strange world we live in. With all our communications, we are still strangely disconnected. Just read this article of a man who suffered a heart attack on Monday but no one noticed till Sunday. It certainly makes me feel like just a cog in a very big, callous machine.
