NaviScribe: A New Optical Navigation Technology (The Future Is Coming!)


NaviScribe

NaviScribe-based digital pens and styli contain miniaturized optical navigation systems that capture the real-time location of their tips with respect to the dimensions of rectangular writing surfaces including ordinary paper and unmodified flat-panel displays.

NaviScribe devices also capture their full spatial motion as they travel across a writing surface. This absolute 3-D motion data, rich in information not available from methods that capture only relative motion, can be applied to handwriting recognition, biometric authentication, and command/input differentiation in a tablet user interface.

Electronic Scripting Products, inc. has developed NaviScribe.

Hollywood: Where Dreamers Go To Find Assistant Jobs


It may be the best job you're gonna get...

"Director of Development seeks 4th Assistant. Previous 4th Assistant took 2nd Assistant position elsewhere. Duties include assisting 3rd Assistant with 1st Assistant's personal errands and filling in for 3rd Assistant when 3rd Assistant substitutes for 2nd Assistant if 2nd Assistant is out sick or shadowing 1st Assistant, lunch pick-ups for 1st-3rd Assistants and light filing. Benefits after 3 months. Excellent opportunity for someone looking to become a 3rd assistant."

 

But this may help...

NBC's My Own Worst Enemy - Yes You Are


'Enemy' no hero for NBC - duh.

My Own Worst Enemy - NBC

NBC's My Own Worst Enemy has the dumbest premise to date. Dumb as a rock. How could this show get "fairly good reviews" (variety 10-15-08) ??

I saw nothing but dramababble and/or badactionbabble. What's the purpose of the Slater character's forced schizophrenia? What good does it do for his "off time," non-secret agent life? Obviously none, cause the bad guys show up at his "cover" house.

This premise is so stupid, there can be no show. It's like a music video, no story, no problem. What really intrigues me is why NBC greenlit this show. Why? NBC's d-girls are drunk or something.
