    Fahrenheit 451, the temperature at which paper burns (also why fire-proof file cabinets are rated as: UL-450, the internal temperature will not exceed 450F for one hour in a standard blaze or something like that. )

    Want THE TV of the future? This is IT. This is the end-all-be-all of display technology here. It's sharper than anything else, it's got higher contrast than anything else, it emits light so there's no viewing angle problems as in LCDs, it's so thin, it can be made flexible and to make the screens is an adaptation of inkjet technology. You just spray on the semiconductors; this makes their manufacturing cost tiny as well if it weren't for companies kidney-punching you in the wallet due to patent royalties. They're called OLED displays and they're on the immediate horizon with some already in production.

    that would be cool with saga.

    x out the jedi class and force points (or call them lady luck points)

    The replicants wouldn't be too hard to map as droids.

    as far as near future stuff, I work in a lab in a hospital and am going to school for biochem, so I read a lot of research lit; it think that's a good place to look at what's coming up in the next 20 years.

    I think the Star Wars Universe of making mechanical appendages is going to be out done on earth in the next 50 years when we're able program cells into regenerating lost limbs or organs.

    But many discoveries have happened as blunders, so who knows what'll pop out soon.

    Well, it looks like we may be playing Catch-up again.

    This project is really promising. What I really like about this initiative is not the "Solar Panels" but the "Public Transportation" model. I really hope it works.

    Perhaps is time to buy some "Segway" Stock. =)
