facebookincubator/dhcplb: dhcplb is Facebook's implementation of a load balancer for DHCP.
Technically it's a load balancer, but their newer version dispense with the Kea DHCP server entirely and serve IP's themselves.

So, WAMP currently is single box limited in the opensource stuff, but it appears the multicore support is getting to linear improvements, so just get a bigger box. However, the current recommendation seems to be to use different realm websocket URI's for a L4 load balancer, then the new WAMP WS reverse proxy, then dump to individual router/workers. So, if you can segment by customer group for the realms, you get some distribution, though lopsided.

Through the Google Glass: The impact of heads-up displays on visual attention | ...
An interesting takeaway is the thesis that HUD notifications compete for language processing time in the visual cortex due to unconscious tendency to process language. This might imply text notifications are worse than iconography, but what about situations where single word characters exist like in japanese/chinese? Is that language processing, or iconography pattern matching?

Electricity and Power Storage - Ares North America
Someone is finally getting around to implementing heavy electric trains on long grades as a gird energy storage system. Though admittedly the current system is smaller scale and for load leveling a wind power plant, and using narrow gauge rail along with a third rail in rural settings seems like a poor choice in the long term. Concept is sound, but having individual motor/generator cars is an interesting compromise. As long as the primary weight can be provided by cheap gravel, I suppose it doesn't matter.

Japan firm unveils robot suit for nuclear workers
Congratulations Cyberdyne, you have now found the motherlode of government funding sources for development. Because who can really argue with increasing the safety of radiation workers by making a load bearing exoskeleton to carry that heavy tungsten rad shield? Now if they could only join the battery pack of HAL with those human cooling suits NASA made a while back for kids with body heat cooling disorders, you might have workers that won't keel over from heat stroke at Fukushima.

So Son's saying what a lot of people have been talking about for a long time now, but he makes for a good spokesman. 4GW offshore HVDC supergrid intertie in the sea of japan, pan-asia links similar to DESERTEC, independent ISO/TSO to break the stranghold of regional oligopolies in japan and have fair feed-in tariff structures without wasted energy. No calls for grid energy storage though, though if a true supergrid is operating, it can be reduced or eliminated if the timezone spread is far enough. Also trotting out the national energy security horse too.

TUM - Higher energy yield with torque vectoring gears
Basically it's a torque load leveler, using an electric motor (more like a flywheel really) filling in for when the rotor input is less than ideal for the synchronous generator, and using the electric motor as a generator when the rotor input is too much for the synchronous motor. Which works if you are waffling around a particular RPM on the main rotor. But if the wind loads are too erratic, or more particularly stay consistently below the ideal RPM of the generator, the parasitic power loss of the booster electric motor is going to hurt efficiency. I guess the stance is that since renewables have high capital costs, anything that reduces those costs (in this case a slightly more expensive transmission in exchange for a vastly cheaper synchronous generator with very little power conditioning equipment and no AC/DC/AC rectifier/inverter) is attractive to get project costs low, even if it hurts output.

Asiajin » KDDI To Increase Tribrid Powered Cellphone Base Stations To Reduce CO2 Emissions
Interesting mixed use methodology, where a cellphone basestation is grid backed, but is operated primarily as a power price curve following battery backed power supply with solar assist, the aim being to reduce grid load during peak hours and to reduce the overall grid power consumption costs by going after the cheap power at night, followed by renewable energy assist during the day via solar. Reminds me of that new basestation design (By Ericsson?) those is a modular concrete tube tower with the built-in vertical axis wind turbine. The tube tower is probably a better choice in urban environments due to smaller land footprint ( I don't think you could get a good solar array size on the top cap of the tube), but the tribrid with solar isn't a bad idea in more rural settings, though at that point you might as well throw in a VAWT.

Can you hear Iron Mountain pooping in their pants? Sure, you gotta use your own hardware to move the data, but this basically completes the trifecta of your data being everywhere, editable at anytime, at on-demand prices. Finally harnessing the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes barreling down a highway, there's really not many reasons left to not get all your data into the cloud.

Idea here is to use near consumer grade (500W) cheap power supplies with fast response factors, coupled with aggressive OS sleep software (and maybe SSD's to cut back on the response start lag of spinning disks), to create server arrays that can shed power load to follow computational demand load. Easier to turn off single power supplies working in an array set to cut power than to tweak a single big monolithic power supply.
