The grand daddy of professional parapsychological research in the States.

Robotic Infantry

It's impressive, but I wonder how vulnerable these appliances are against thing like an electronic pulse, tiger pit booby traps, and the type of problem solving skills necessary in many combat environments.  I also wonders what happens when the Chinese hack into them, as they've done to so many other "impregnable" systems of ours.

The Test City

I'll be curious how this works out, and if it can accurately mirror real urban areas for testing purposes.

Electronic implants to re-encode memories


The greatest Lovecraftian movie never made

Ancient telephones?

You know, I wouldn't be a bit surprised.  From my (very limited) understanding, the knowledge of batteries may well have been known by one or more ancient peoples, and perhaps ways to generate electricity through movement, etc.  It's a pretty short hop from there to having a telegraph-like system, or even a crystal radio set.

A nice little article on the Arbatel grimoire

Count Gore De Vol

With October comes my annual plug for the Washinton area's most famous ghost host - Count Gore De Vol.  His show, Creature Feature, started out in DC in the 1970's eventually losing out in the ratings/money game, and getting cancelled.  But eventually, Gore came back with the show online, and it is the longest running online site of its kind on the Internet.  Now only are older horror movies shown, but also new independent releases, and with a coterie of fellow fiends contributing commentary, and reviews of books, film, music, etc.  This is an essential site for any fans of monster movies and horror.
