Water water a drop to drink

Dean Kamen has introduced a truly amazing new device that purifies ANY water.
The claims he makes are truly astounding, such as the ability to get water from the ocean, from poisoned wells, from urine...he claims this device has the potential to eliminate 50% of the diseases the world faces by bringing clean drinking water to the 20% of people of this planet who do not have it. If this thing pans out....WOW.

Two New(ish) Techs

Not really related to anything, but thought I'd share.

Room temperature superconducting material
Flying laser cannon

Need a laugh?

Pointing out awful errors from bad photoshopping should do it.
Check out PhotoShopped for some chuckles.

Funny thing is, I remember seeing some of these images at the grocery story and the movie theater, but I didn't really notice. They might not have looked right, but I didn't think on it long enough to figure it out. Sad state of affairs when we don't notice when a movie poster portrays someone as having only three fingers...maybe if she'd been green and in a spaceship...

Paper animation - yes, using real paper, with the image cut out. Yes, it takes a LONG time. The effect is really cool though.
