Question by Kianaat: What degree should I take(some sort of engineering) if I want to learn how to build things like Tony Stark? I want to learn robotics…of course like Iron man…but I also want to learn how to make things like his computerish system(the one that is 3-D, hologram, flicks of wrists and so in and so forth) I am aware not all this technology is real YET, but if I want to learn out to get on that path to someday create these technologies? Serious answers only please.
Answer by Amus the catMaybe join Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. I heard that they have really nice programs and a great campus.

It’s that time of the week when Tokyoflash launches another one of its charming, barely-decipherable timepieces. Except, this time out, the face is eminently readable — with the only baffling addition a ring that joins the minute and hour hands. While it’s available in black and silver, the sienna variant with its reddish-brown casing go hand-in-hand with the bracelet’s chunky stylings to make it eerily reminiscent of Tony Stark’s superhero outfit. If you’d to indulge your own arc reactor-infused fantasies, the company is selling the timepiece for $ 109 (€85, £68) until 2:00 AM ET Saturday, after which it’ll set you back $ 149 (€116, £93). If you want to take a moment to see it in action before you order a cheeseburger and declare yourself Iron Man, head on past the break.

Question by Hank: Is Tony Stark an electrical engineer or robotics engineer? Judging by his skills, would you say he’s an electrical engineer major? Or a robotics engineer major? Or something else?
Answer by Z, King of NinjasJudging by the his inventions & achievements within the comics & within the movie, I’d say that he’s both. Considering all that he has done with technology, he would have to be both.

Imagine barreling through the Amazonian rainforest with machetes flailing from the windows of your off-road rig, and just as you’re about to kick the vehicle into low gear, you pause to consider the impact of your vehicle’s exhaust (among other things) on the delicate ecosystem around. Fortunately for eco-minded folks, Portland-based EV manufacturer MotoCzysz — creator of the wicked E1pc electric motorcycle — plans to allay some of those concerns with its all-electric eStark SUV. For the basis of the vehicle, the company has turned to Brazilian auto manufacturer TAC Motors. The two partners will work together to integrate MotoCyzysz’s electric D1g1tal Dr1ve powertrain into otherwise diesel-thirsty Stark SUVs. Naturally, they’ll also need to fill it with a healthy battery pack, which’ll undoubtedly weigh down the otherwise plasticky carriage. Currently, the companies plan to manufacturer 3,600 eStark SUVs, which the partners hope to sell in Brazil and North America. Don’t count on taking the eStark onto the freeway anytime soon, though — the high cost of US safety certifications will likely keep this one away from city streets.

Because some scientists have have jobs where they can sit around and speculate about the effects a sci-fi series’ spaceship would have on the universe (jelly!), researchers at the University of Sydney have decided that Star Trek’s warp drive would destroy the universe. Me? I’m convinced with a big enough laser anybody could destroy the universe.
…Space is not just an empty void between point A and point B… rather, it’s full of particles that have mass (as well as some that do not.) What the research team — led by Brendan McMonigal, Geraint Lewis, and Philip O’Byrne — has found is that these particles can get “swept up” into the warp bubble [when traveling faster than light] and focused into regions before and behind the ship, as well as within the warp bubble itself.
When the Alcubierre-driven ship decelerates from superluminal speed, the particles its bubble has gathered are released in energetic outbursts. In the case of forward-facing particles the outburst can be very energetic — enough to destroy anyone at the destination directly in front of the ship.
“Any people at the destination,” the team’s paper concludes, “would be gamma ray and high energy particle blasted into oblivion due to the extreme blueshifts for [forward] region particles.”
Meh, who cares if you kill everyone at your destination? It’s not like that wasn’t the plan anyways. Kill everybody, deplete their natural resources, and move on. It’s the circle of life the future. DUM DUM DUM!
Warp Drives May Come With a Killer Downside [universetoday]
Thanks to Mr. Spork and Mutty, who’re convinced if they just renamed the warp drive something less intense maybe its effects wouldn’t be so extreme. Now THAT — that’s what I call thinking with science.Related Posts:
External hard drives do not have to be stale and fake. They can look just as good as they perform and the latest from LaCie fits the profile nicely. The LaCie Starck Mobile USB 3.0 seems at first like every other external on the market, but then slowly you start to appricate the less is more design. It’s sexy.
Inside the 2mm aluminum casing is a 500GB hard drive and USB 3.0 connectivity. The good looks will cost you though. The drive will hit retailers shortly at $ 109.
Halo-inspired Xbox 360? Check. Xbox 360 laptop? Seen it. Xbox 360 fused with a PS3? Yep. A Tony Stark-approved Xbox 360? Thanks to one Zachariah Perry Cruse, we can now add this beaut to the list. This here design student managed to use his summer vacation for a little more than weekend jaunts to Gary, putting an awful lot of blood, sweat and fear into his very own Iron Man Xbox 360. Naturally, it’s the older, less slimmer 360 console, complete with a 120GB hard drive and an HDMI socket. There’s a video of the LEDs doing their thing after the break, and that eBay link will get you where you need to be if you’re a prospective buyer. And let’s be honest here — you are a prospective buyer.

We can’t all have arc reactors or computer butlers—yet. But I may be willing to settle for a tiny Iron Man USB jump drive in the meantime. Adorable? Check. Collectible? Check. Affordable? Er… More »
