I'm amazed and saddened at the same time. If we ever go through another Storm of '06, and god willing another notable quote from Ben Swan just like the one he gave in '06 with "This used to be a sidewalk!!", the passion in that man is humbling, my whole apartment will be rendered useless. Technology amazes and astounds me, yet all the same frustrates and disappoints me. Most of our technology is rendered useless without electricity so to discover out that Boston University's College of Engineering is starting to develop the next gen version of WiFi transmission through the use of lightbulbs, specifically LEDs, well I'm simply flabbergasted. I love the idea, and to hear that it can even be used in the automobile industry for the following reason is insane.
"This technology has many implications for automobile safety," Little said. "Brake lights already use LEDs, so it's not a stretch to outfit an automobile with a sensor that detects the brake lights of the car in front of it and either alerts an inattentive driver or actively slows the car."
Crazy, crazy people. I can't wait for the day that I can rig up my whole place with solar panels and battery back ups so I can continue racking up some XP in Call of Duty 4 while the rest of you float away.
