Man, have we been getting pounded :).  It looked like we were going to have a green winter but this last group of storms has been awesome.  This is our Drive.  A few more here: https://www.facebook.com/randy.strome

Hi guys,

There has been some expressed interest in sharing some files for 3D printing and other shaping technologies.  Feel free to use this thread to share files and post details about those files.  Have fun!

PS:  I have enabled an initial group of file extensions for upload.  If you are getting errors on your files or need additional file types please let me know.

Random / Full Body Scans

Amazing!  As resoltion increases and as scan reading becomes a bot function does anyone not see AI as the (near) future of diagnosis?

Well, hot damn.  The at home endoscope is finally available.  I reckon returns inspector at this company is a high turnover position :).

We can get so focused on our lives, interests and micro sports that it is easy to miss the full reality of some rapidly developing trends.  I think we all have a generic understanding that gaming has been quicky escalating but I am sure that I am not alone in having missed parts of where it is today.

When you think of the time units that traditional and alternative sports are now competing for it is hard to avoid the impact that this ~140 billion dollar industry is having (across all demographic lines). 

Even so, it caught me off guard that fans are now logging in to watch pro players live stream as they play (through services like Twitch).    Top guys (I believe Ninja is the most renowned of these) are earning upwards of 500K a month from fans watching them play and donating to them.  These aren't competitions (that is a separate deal), they are essentially live streamed online pickup games.  The game of the moment is Fortnite.  We have successful teams, heavy sponsorship etc. 

Possibly most interesting is that the game, Fortnite is entirely free.  But players can opt to buy cosmetic skins for their characters (the skins have no impact on play) and it is pulling in about $300 Million a month.  Rest with that for a second :)

I am sure we have some players in our midst.  I think this is incredible and would love to know more about the scene.

Hi Guys,

We (finally) pulled the trigger on a couple of surfskis.  What would you suggest for car top (Subaru Outback) and garage racks.  Love to see how you guys are getting it done.  Thanks!

This is a very interesting look at the data that the big entities collect and store on us:

Random / Time for Solid State?

The promise of 2.5 times energy density and 1 minute charge times is certainly alluring.  Will this be next? 

Not to say that current cars, bikes, gadgets, etc are not amazingly capable as is, but we are still within the realm of range anxiety, charge time frustration, and weight complaint.  But, if the promises are true, we should blow through all of those in the next few years.
