The Future is Here. Actually it's down the street.

I went to an event called Wired NextFest this evening at the Los Angeles Convention Center. I don't want to ruin the surprise for anyone who hasn't been yet, as it runs through Sunday, but it was really cool. I made a beeline for the Future of Green, Design, Transportation, and Communication areas, and I saw some amazing stuff. A few highlights:

This picture is not photoshopped. It is magnetic fluid, dancing in a spiral...


Yes! It's a solar powered car!


As soon as I saw this, all I could think about was *that* episode of South Park....


Totally unreal....a screen that changes images - from day to dusk to night and back - when you touch it. Astounding...
