You'd think that in an office of software and hardware engineers either someone would have some 3D specs or else we could make some. It's not rocket science.
I'll have to go on a hunt :)
The Mars-trekking Curiosity rover has beamed back the first 3D image of the dusty terrain it's trundling across. 3D pic of Mars terrain from Curiosity With 3D specs... The intrepid rover is currently familiarising itself with the Gale Crater after its successful landing three days ago and has sent back a 2D and 3D shot of …
No, McGyver would have shaped the tin into a knife and bomb-proof hat, melted the chocolates into a burning paste which he fired out of a gun fashioned from the remains of the tin, used the wrappers to build a stained-glass silhouette of himself to put into a window to distract someone below, and used the little piece of paper that tells you which chocolate is which to form an origami raft to send a message downriver to the sheriff station asking for backup.
What the hell is wrong with you? NASA has just sent a vehicle the size of a car 350 million miles on a journey taking 8 and a half months, eventually landing on an alien planet via rocket powered crane with such success that they had to check and recheck the instrument readings because it was far more successful than their own simulations ever predicted it would be, and what do you say? "I don't like the image format"
Just fuck off.
I'm still not sold on 3D, but this helps.
Everytime I see that picture I can't help but feel that my (as many others will I suspect) council are not doing the greatest of jobs repearing pot-holes and cracks in comparision and maybe that in itself is prove of life on Mars. Though that speed hump looks down right silly, even by UK standards.
It's just having a quiet smoke. Feeling pretty pleased with itself. Having a bit of a nap.
I reckon it's gonna be a right little goer!
I'm politically against things like this because there are people starving in the world and the money could be so much better spent elsewhere. Then again, I am a right boring bastard with no friends. So maybe watching it trundling around might be quite good entertainment after all.
Never let it be said I did not embrace hypocrisy with both mandibles. Shit I think I got my posts mixed up....
I'm politically for things like this because they are peaceful and expand human horizons, inspire children to learn and take up science as a career.
I'm politically against military spending because it's not right to build things that are capable of killing people and destroying homes and infrastructure. Now I am no idiot and know that a military will always be needed but just by shaving a few zero's off the end of the budgets all over the world will free up so much cash that it could all but end world hunger, poverty and substandard medical care.
Oninoshiko, I think you missed the cowards point.
Its one thing to build a nailgun for the building of shelter,
its another to buils a 50 cal sniper rifle that can only be used for killing people a mile away , impressive though it is ,
much less an ICBM that can kill a million people on a different continent.
That's not what (s)he said, it's not even close. (s)he said that we shouldn't build things capible of killing people. each of these things kill people every day. Say what you mean.
And while not a grammer issue, I did use an icon indicating that I was being pedantic.
