Audi continues with it advanced R+D into projection headlights. Interesting – looks like they have a couple different ways to achieve the projection – one a is a digital mirror chip (sounds like Texas Instruments’ DLP tech) and a second

Looks like Rohinni is making progress.  Congrats to them for their second coverage in FastCompany.  This article teases a bit more detail then what we knew from two years ago: They are apparently developing technologies to more accurately place the

laser rust removal

I will be adding this to my personal “Tony Stark’s workshop” wishlist… P-Laser and ESR Laser make industrial grade laser equipment for burning rust, grime, oil, etc. off of metal parts.  A heavy duty use of light…I would suggest some
