TGS First Post! - Notes to the Reader, Unborn Baby Models, Future Window Awesomeness

Ok guys, here is the first post.  I intend to keep all future posts PG, however, please be advised that sometimes peoples' comments may not be.  Even I can get sarcastic in my own ways. I hope to encourage good learning and even actions through involving the community.

As I have thought about this concept for some time my future hopes are to turn this blogspot into a great radio station one day.  I would like all readers to participate in active discussions and even submit content you would like me to review.  If you have trouble getting a hold of me, just post a comment and I will respond quickly. 

Please keep it fun, civilized, and educational and TGS will return the favor.  Follow me and all my posts, and don't forget to tell your friends and family.


MOVING ON!!!

NOTE:  Normally I try to keep all my information new within the last 3 months.  However, because I am still getting used to Blogger, and this is my first post ever, I'm going to talk about stuff I have known about for a while.  Just pretend you are amazed and next time I will make it worth your time :D

Unborn Baby Models
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1195703/The-stunning-new-technology-allows-parents-hold-life-size-model-unborn-child.html

Today we have quite a concept for the parents (planned or otherwise).  As the article reads, "new" technology is now being implemented to view a 3D/4D image of unborn children.  That image is later converted into a model which is then carved out of plaster.  Another way of keeping those priceless memories. 

I find this article interesting because of two things.  One, is that you are able to see a detailed blown up image of your child/children as a plaster form.  For all the parenting enthusiasts out there who are sure to buy 2 of everything for a single child this is just another memento to add to the collection. 

However, the 2nd interesting thing I see here towards the bottom of the article you see a model of conjoined twins.  The skeletons look down right cool in a creepy Halloween way.  This makes me feel like there are possibilities for medical services.  And I am sure that this is just the beginning of these model figures.  Maybe the future will hold actual baby molding technology so parents can practice with life like replicas of their own children before the child is even born.

I've listed two links here where you can find great information on the future of household and commercial room lighting.  As screen technology advances, it was only natural for OLED lighting to come forth, and with the crazy imagination of those genius Japanese, the youtube video was something making me want more. 

As the youtube video shows, the lighting demonstration showing you how future windows will be developed in place of curtains and blinds.  As the video progresses you see a very typical Iron Man blinds effect (which has been in the minds of anime enthusiasts for decades), however, the great part comes when the instructor comes in to educate you on "using" the window system.  Moving your hands will enable and change features of the sun blocking system.  Throwing up patterns to add art to the madness, you have the ability to change room color (visual temperature for the film buffs like myself), cast cool patterns (which would come in handy for holidays), and even help reenergize your body using the Jet Lag feature.  Honestly, I've never had Jet Lag from my trips across the globe so I couldn't tell you how useful that would be.  But I still can't get over the creativity aspects of this one.
