This Week in the Future, November 23-26, 2009: Thanksgiving Special
There’s a lot to be thankful for in the future. Gather ’round the table, all you Navy Sea Lions, Jazz Bots, Star Wars enthusiasts and ethical scientists. Today is a day for futuristic feasting.
(Get the details, and win the t-shirt, after the jump).
What a wonderful Thanksgiving week it’s been here on PopSci.com, and what a fascinating future lies before us:
- Appetizer: Sea lions help the U.S. Navy sweep mines and cuff enemy divers.
- Side dishes (with a healthy portion of lively table conversation/political debate): Scientists denounce IBM’s cat-brain computer as an unethical hoax.
- Everybody loves the turkey: Improvising jazz-bot jams with its human counterparts (yep, we’ve got video!).
- Dessert: An engineer takes his cue from Star Wars in solving a little violent elephant problem.
Wasn’t that just delicious?
