The Oatmeal is Trying to Save Tesla’s Lab!

Posted on 16 August 2012 by Jessica Dunn

Do you know Nikola Tesla?  No?  You should, so go read this.  Okay, now you know who he is and now that you know, here is why you need to know Tesla, RIGHT NOW.

We just so happen to have one of Tesla’s old labs here in the New York state, but the land is for sale.  The non-profit organization, The Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe, wants to buy the 1.6million dollar property and turn it into a museum dedicated to Tesla, unfortunately, there is someone else looking to buy the property and turn it into some kind of retail space – probably a strip mall with a Dunkin Donuts or a Subway or something.

Nevada Allows for Cars without Drivers and My Hope for that World

Posted on 08 May 2012 by VinnieAve

So Google has been working on making a driverless car for a long time. I am sure you’ve seen some of the very impressive videos in the past. However, now there is an officially licensed car that is driverless. This is the first step to ending a world of car accidents and unnecessary deaths on the road. The motorist will be a sportsman like the jockey is now. I honestly think there will be a push in the future to a world where driving is a minor skill that few have. That won’t be for a long time but it will happen. It will start off as a luxury but I think very quickly that as more and more people use them that states will realize that robot cars are a safety need, like a seat-belt. I also fear that in the first few years will see resistance with every accident reported, like how every plane crash is. However, I think that people will have to get used to cars that follow the rules of the road, speeding will be out of the program. Or would there be speeding, how would a car understand going with the flow of traffic, I expect that the early models will be limited to the speed limit since those are going to be sharing the road with people but as time goes on it will follow a few simple rules: get to the destination, stay on the roads, get there as fast as possible, and don’t kill the person inside of you or hit anything. The real test will be on the east coast Megalopolis. The sooner that robo cars take over the better off we are. I welcome our overlords in their mighty Googleplex and there robotic minions. I also would like to remind Google to program the 3 Laws in everything you do.
