As +Kevin C. said, "I really don't see any reasonable future where this doesn't become mandatory nation wide. There have been multiple cities where implementing cameras improved police behavior. It improves the availability of impartial evidence, weigh should be good for good cops, and bad for bad cops. I'm sure the camera systems themselves are getting cheaper. Combine that with recurring events like the cop who pepper sprayed kneeling #Occupy protesters or the events in Ferguson, and I foresee a pretty strong demand for sousveilling the cops."

"Voxel Quest (VQ) is a single-player, isometric, procedural, emergent, voxel-based, roguelike, tactical, turn-based RPG" which claims to be "one of the few game engines [...] that is truly volumetric.  That means that every object is solid in a non-trivial manner.  If you slice a brick wall in half, you will find every brick laid out properly in the new cross section. [...]  By default, there are 128^3 (about 2 million) voxels per cubic meter.  As a comparison, Minecraft uses one voxel (or quasi voxel) per cubic meter."

Well, this sounds interesting...

Holy crap... When Minecraft 1.8 hits the virtual shelves, 3d resource packs are going to be a serious game changer.

Sick of people saying things like "If we live in the future, where's my hovercar?"

Well, this sure sounds like a step in the right direction to me...
