Yeah, so obvious.

That's why I love my open-back.

So what I'm hearing is that now we'll be able to tell the good electronics from the evil electronics

The evil electronics are the ones with a goatee, and sinister incidental music.

Cool. o.o

And thus we invent a new method of converting AC to DC?

Sweet, when can I 3D print some?

Oh sure just mention "V-Structure" and get an insta-green.

The left - or right-handedness of an object plays an important role in defining how it interacts with the outside world.

Great. Just what we need.

Is it a flux capacitor or not?

This should result in very durable electronics as I understand those V-Structures can take a pounding.
 
2012-07-14 03:11:43 PM  
Actually, if you could do it on the larger scale, it would have some really interesting implications in airframe coatings.

I know your mom's V-Structure took quite the pounding last night...

Work has been proceeding in order to bring perfection to the crudely conceived idea of a machine that would not only supply inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, but would also be capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters. Such a machine is the "Turbo-Encabulator."

The original machine had a base-plate of prefabulated amulite, surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings were in a direct line with the pentametric fan. The main winding was of the normal lotus-o-delta type placed in panendermic semi-boloid slots in the stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a nonreversible trem'e pipe to the differential girdlespring on the 'up' end of the grammeters.

Forty-one manestically spaced grouting brushes were arranged to feed into the rotor slipstream a mixture of high S-value phenylhydrobenzamine and 5% reminative tetryliodohexamine. Both of these liquids have specific pericosities given by P = 2.5C.n^6-7 where n is the diathetical evolute of retrograde temperature phase disposition and C is Cholmondeley's annular grillage coefficient. Initially, n was measured with the aid of a metapolar refractive pilfrometer, but up to the present date nothing has been found to equal the transcendental hopper dadoscope. Undoubtedly, the turbo-encabulator has now reached a very high level of technical development. It has been successfully used for operating nofer trunnions. In addition, whenever a barescent skor motion is required, it may be employed in conjunction with a drawn reciprocating dingle arm to reduce sinusoidal depleneration.

So resonator electrodes are highlanders?

that's been superseded by a device that utilizes zero point energy as found in the complete inertial systems of the internet.

What sort of handedness we talkin' here?

We talkin' enantiomers? Vector polarity (and if so, what units)? Topology?

Optical activity. Read the first paragraph or two of the article and that bit's pretty clear.

//Well, technically the radiation involved isn't in the optical range, but still.

Wow! Once these start getting mass produced, my VX6 will have a hell of a lot less of a hard time getting deltas above .56. I keep getting resonance breakdowns around the high 40 range.. probably shiatty Chinese caps, but parts are expensive :(

Is there a real world application for this?

Or is this just some electronics trick that will serve no real purpose except to look cool?

Quite a bit of metamaterial work like this is sort of aimed at military applications. In this case per se it isn't clear, but if you could tune the metamaterial characteristics on the fly in a coating, I could sell it to PhantomWorks and retire in the Rockies.

svenge: I know your mom's V-Structure took quite the pounding last night...


I am sure it did. My dad walks around with a board strapped to his ass so he does not fall in when pounding said V Structure.

My mother is a whore with a massive vagina, how did you know?

It not really much a secret.
