I know I haven’t been active on the ol’ Garter lately – too much other work, mainly writing for Science not Fiction and my day job. But since SNF is about technology anyway, here’s a quick linkeroo to the work I’ve been doing over there, mostly about the new Knight Rider, cause, hey, that’s what I’ve been assigned. Coming soon, updates on the MPA process.
Knight Rider, and the science therein
• KITT has a 3-D printer right in the car. I know, I know, I’ve done 3-D printing before, but his had a laser.
• KITT can identify faces from pictures. That may seem like nothing, but facial recognition is actually wicked hard for computers, though clearly less so for computers.
• KITT goes underwater. Miriam says she’s seen the video of the real life submarine car before, but did you know you could get a personal submarine for $82,000? You know you want one.
By the way, part of my brief is to avoid disproving impossible stuff. It’s just too easy.
