Arkansas Dentist Creates Star Wars Spoof To Promote Laser Technology

Jonesboro, Arkansas dentist Dr. J. Steven Abernathy is obviously a huge Star Wars fan. So when it came time to promote PIPS, a precision laser activated irrigation technology, obviously he’s going to turn to Star Wars. Well, the spoof video that he created here is just wonderful. It’s like being in an alternate universe where somehow Star Wars and dentistry have collided. This is without a doubt, the most epic root canal commercial in existence. Honestly, I’m not sure how many even exist, but this is the best. I bet he shows this to all of his new patients first thing. It probably puts them at ease right away. All I know is that if I lived in Arkansas, he would be my dentist. The floss is strong with him. I can feel it. Truth be told, I wouldn’t mind seeing two more videos like this, one for...

The Speed of Light inside the Box 0

The Speed of Light inside the Box

Intel has announced a chip which uses the transmission of light to move data between devices at a cost competitive with existing components found inside of gadgets. This effectively brings fiber-optics to the level of being used within and between consumer devices, as contrasted with its current infrastructure use. Intel has already been working on a fiber-optic patch cable for connecting home gadgets at 20 times current speeds; this new development will potentially increase current speeds by fifty times. The Silicon Valley dot com website (part of the San Jose Mercury-News) describes it as follows: But the chip it unveiled Tuesday, which sends data via four lasers, can hit 50 gigabits per second. And that’s just the beginning, according to (Intel CTO Justin) Rattner. By adding a few more lasers, the company expects to be able to boost that to perhaps 1,000 gigabits, he said. At that rate,...

Navteq Will Revolutionize Mapping with 3D Dataset Maps and LIDAR Scanning – CES 2010

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Google has done a lot with mapping. Google streetview gives you a good idea what to look for in a location. I have virtually walked down a street so I could be familiar with landmarks before I even get to the location. Well, what if I could have a better representation than what Google gives? What if I could have a full 3D – 360 view of a street? Enter Navteq – a company that will take mapping to a whole new level. They have been in the mapping industry for 25 years. With a technology known as LIDAR Scanning, the mapping – like in Google Maps – will take your map from a 2D realm to a 3D level. The Car looks like it has a weird device on top that spins at 600 revolutions per minute. It has...
