3D Without the Glasses

Sharp is bragging about new software that analyzes video images and converts them into a 3D perspective. This is a pretty cool feature (if it works).

Yahoo news reposts an interesting USA Today article about using a computer to process election data through an electoral model. The statistical model was good, the data entry was accurate enough, the 5,000 Univac vacuum tubes did their job, and CBS was able to project the winner of the 1952 presidential election long before the ballots were counted. Electoral jounalism and poltical science were changed forever.
