    One of the projects I've worked on has made it into Engadget today, which is kind of unusual for my line of work. Not sure how interested folks here will be, but I thought I'd share.

    Enjoy!

    Oh I dunno, that is incredibly cool if you ask me. Not just the Engadget deal but what you do sounds cool.

    Awesome! Now I'd like a high res IR pic of the Earth like the article has for a desktop.:p

    I'll have to get back to you on that one. :)

    Edit: not my sensor, but one from NOAA-GOES: http://www.goes.noaa.gov/FULLDISK/GEIR.JPG

    Wow, that's really cool.

    I don't suppose you're recruiting henchmen? ;):D

    Well as a matter of fact, my current henchman hasn't been heard from in some time, so I might be looking for a replacement soon. I seem to be going through evil sidekicks at an alarming rate.

    Interested?

    That is very cool. I'm going to hold out for the 32MP version though. ;)

    That depends. Do you offer dental? I like to be able to pick my own dentist.

    You realize it's video, right?

    Also, we have something on the order of 64MP in the works. Oops, now no-one will want to buy this model. No wonder Steve Jobs never talks about future releases. Forget I said all that.

    Are you asking who I am? I'm an engineer who worked on the project in the link.
