H: After seven years of work, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have built a system that relies on the “noise” of jiggling electrons as a basis for measuring temperatures with extreme precision.

P: The system is nearly precise enough now to help update some of the crucial underpinnings of science, including the 54-year-old definition of the Kelvin, Get ready for a whole new ball of melting wax!

H: NASA is using Twitter to communicate with its closest friends on Earth. The Phoenix Mars Lander account on Twitter is, and it started posting to twitter May 7 from interplanetary space.

P: I thought you could only adopt someone pretending to be an ickle bwaby on habbo?

H: the study shows that over the next ten years some 22 percent of global broadband users will have registered for one or more virtual worlds resulting in a market approaching one billion people

P; While fewer than 10 percent of virtual world registrants actually become active users; this will increase to 27 percent of users by 2017. Virtual worlds, such as Sulake’s Habbo Hotel, have registered nearly 100 million , and i has 10 million unique monthly visitors, while Second Life has a similar pattern, with 12 million registrants and about one million active users

H: That’s more conservative than other predictions. For example, Gartner predicted that 80% of Internet users will have some involvement in virtual worlds by 2011.

P: Sony’s Home will soon “roll out to the public Throughout the development process, the team has released tidbits of new information, features, and plans for the console-based virtual world, making it seem like the Gmail-style beta could be a long, ongoing (unending?) process of iterating and updating.

H: Last October, a brain-computer interface from Keio University demoed which allowed users to move about in Second Life using only their minds.

P: The goal was to make it a tool for physically handicapped users to interact with others in the virtual environment. Today the researchers said that a man who could not move his arms and legs was able to control a Second Life avatar via the three electrodes in his brain and then communicate with other users through an attached microphone.

H: The researchers say the system could add motivation to patients who are too depressed to go through rehab and, with other tools like a mentally controlled text message system, enable anyone to go through their daily activities in the virtual world.

P: In the near future, they would be able to stroll through Second Life shopping malls with their brain waves… and click to make a purchase,” I want it just took on a WHOLE new meaning.

H: Research over the last two years at the iAsk Center confirms what recent outside studies are showing: Online users are often more “virtually” honest than they are in real life because of their anonymity and ability to shed their external appearance.

P: what is seen regularly at the iAsk Center shows our avas may be more truthful about their feelings and opinions. This may be due to our responding here not as the person we are in real life but as the person we truly feel we are.

H: Bring it on Generation V as in Virtual! So marketers are twigging that If companies follow a truly persona-centric approach, they can use the highly relevant information the avatar gives.

H: Recently seen in Sl are Ideabots- talk to a robot -they can be stationed anywhere in the virtual world and accessed via IM at anytime from any place. Once a user interacts with a Bot, they will be invited to take part in the research study, screened according to the panel’s demographic standards and then walked through the survey.

P: Where as an avatar you will reveal all your REAl innermost feelings- I would- unless I was asked about my secret crush.
