I'll take my research grant, to a cave, with a BOX OF SCRAPS!

Star Trek is not impressed.

Man, it's like a party at Hank Pym's house in here.

Materials scientists HAVEN'T been doing this?

The most amazing (non-impossible) technology in Ironman was his freaking CAD program.

Maybe. I dunno.

However, tying your article to an upcoming blockbuster is the key to getting clicks.

Drat, I was hoping it was about rocket boots.

/Where are my rocket boots?

That's what I thought the article would be about.

Yeah, one of the biggest grins on my face during the first movie (yes I'm a dork) was when he was designing the arm piece or whatever and had the holographic display he could actually put his arm into and the software reacted accordingly. I feel like this tech will be around in the next 5-10 years, we're already starting to figure out the display part and Kinect-like depth sensing cameras could manipulate the display based on positioning of your limbs/controllers in space.

CAD in actual 3D space without mice and horrible XYZ manipulation and confusing renderings... sounds like a big kid playground.

Sorry for triple post, but one using the Kinect alone...!
