The 3D train has definitely left the station, but until recently if you wanted to hitch a ride on board, that meant purchasing a flat panel display. Now, flat panels have some inherent benefits for showing 3D, namely their scorchingly high light output which is incredibly beneficial for displaying 3D material. However, as wonderful as these flat panels are, they are unable to deliver a truly immersive 3D experience like the large screen of a two-piece projection system. Like the 3D that you experience at the theater. You know.
The annual Tales of the Cocktail convention happened again in New Orleans last week, I seem to recall. And somewhere between the sazeracs and the rusty nails, I attended a series of enlightening seminars (each accompanied by appropriate cocktails, of course).
Harold McGee, author of On Food and Cooking and probably the most famous name in food science, was present at Tales for the first time, to lend his expertise to a deserving cocktail world. He sat on a panel with Audrey Saunders, celebrated owner of New York's Pegu Club, and Tony Conigliaro, who pushes the frontiers of molecular mixology at London's 69 Colebrooke Row.

Catching up with artists and writers at New York Comic Con, we heard about new science and technology in comics, graphic novels, video games, and film. While many new stories hinge on emerging technologies, the best of the classic stories incorporate the newest science into ongoing sagas, often rewriting the past. In either case, these graphical genres can explore the consequences of scientific progress in the not too distant future.
