    Default Highest technology

    This is as clever as it sounds - camera sees around corners thanks to femtosecond laser bursts http://bit.ly/GDA0Dr



    That is so clever and such a thorough application of light theory I'm surprised it's not classified.
    The inverse of this would make invisibility cloaking much more effective.

    Anyway, I reckon that is the very highest technology available today. Maybe it's a watered-down version of the detectors in the LHC, I don't know. If this isn't, what is the highest technology anyone is coming up with at the moment?

    That's pretty fucking amazing.

    Most of the really high-precision detectors in the LHC experiments are used for tracking charged particles, so I'm not sure it's directly connected to this kind of technology - but at the end of the day it's all CCD (charge-couple devices) that form the basis of digital cameras from space telescopes to the one in your phone. And, on a fundamental level, particle physics instrumentation.

    Nice find!

    It's kind of a boring/cliche subject but sometimes I wonder what stuff is going to be like when I'm like 50 (22 now). I really don't want to think about it though, grim shit, can't see the world or our relationship with technology and nature being any more healthy than it is now.
