So: how should a new Star Wars “long long time ago in a galaxy far far away” movie’s world look? Should their tech match our tech? If you are Disney and you don’t want to alienate a huge existing fan base, but also want to attract a new audience - what choices do you make? The original movie was mad...

Oh wow! yes my nephew has a remote controlled BB8 and it does almost look like the real thing. However in future I suspect they will stick the base model robots behind animated screens as the CGI is getting more and more complex. I have some reservations about the Star wars robots as they adhere to...

I once visited a robotics competition (VEX) hosted by Widener College. The hosts had invited some “real robotics” demonstrators for the kids to see (the kids who were competing with VEX kit built robots). One group of Widener students were trying to demo a Hampster Ball Robot - a bit like BB8. It h...

https://tinyimg.io/i/uboEHdN.jpeg https://tinyimg.io/i/2O1xRYn.jpeg A bit off topic. My 12 year old son was asking me about the different kinds of robot drives you can build. I told him about one used by one of the working R2D2 units that they used for the movie. I found the two pictures above to i...

The "whiskey speech" concerned the question of the prohibition of alcoholic liquor, a law that was still in force in Mississippi at the time the speech was delivered. “My friends, I had not intended to discuss this controversial subject at this particular time. However, I want you to know ...

^ one possible origin for the word “nerd” is the word “drunk” spelled backwards. The saying goes that “at (name of college) there are only two kinds of people: the drunks and the knurds”. If you picture a school where there are the “cool kids” who like to party (or who are the type of people who get...

^ It is true that Carnigie worked with sales people. His biography included managing radio talent - which is a bit like sales. I disagree with the idea that Dale Carnegie recommends false flattery. He specifically says that flattery is false, like counterfeit money and that you will get into trouble...

Two (different) adults that I often see at church or at the library, brother and sister. They appear to live with mom who takes them to church. I would. place them at 30 or 35...

If this was me I would look at the audio settings in the control panel of my pc. If you want help trouble shooting we would need more information. Did this ever work before or did it never work?
