You're a fool man, OB can hear the word daughter from like eight states away!

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] October 9 2010 1:27 PM EDT

That is awesome! It is also an Idea I have had for a while for my wife. I've been trying to find a way to crunch the Sorenson Video Phone tech into a mobile format using 6th Sense Technology as a basis. IE Turning Sign to text/voice and back. I would be highly interested to see what they came up with in particular!

nice dude...

someone tranq OB quick!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] October 9 2010 1:32 PM EDT

they really just had to pitch a concept. they wanted the teams to stay away from qwerty and touch keypads as much as possible.

their concept was just what you described, using sign language and the camera on the cell phone which would translate the sign to text.

they won some technology items for their school and each one of the girls got a $100 best buy gift card.

i knew ob would be a problem, i have a shotgun though and a few chain saws! not that i would cut him up or anything, but i would put his butt to work clearing trees! ; )

BAHAHAHAHHAHA They get a $100 gift card and some computers, but the company has a multi-million dollar idea under their patent x3

Nice one Sloan!

Dude, you better pick up a nice big anti-OB stick. ;)

I'd rather trust OB with my daughter than a chainsaw.... there's little chance of him figuring out women, but chainsaws and rednecks go together like grits and corn.

So, nice looks AND brains ? Nice combo :P

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] October 9 2010 5:18 PM EDT

sloaner just read the comments and says, "thanks dudes!"

Lochnivar October 9 2010 5:20 PM EDT

I'm not sure that having an impressionable youth read comments on here is a good idea dude....

Anyway, congrats to Sloan

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] October 9 2010 5:22 PM EDT

Congrats. CS needs more girls. I've had at most 3/40 girls in my CS classes at RIT.

AdminNightStrike October 9 2010 9:34 PM EDT

QBOddBird October 9 2010 10:10 PM EDT

PS Grats for thinking outside the norm. :)

Your best protection from me! ;)

QBOddBird October 10 2010 11:14 AM EDT

it's worth the spikey baseball bat and gun abuse

Lochnivar October 10 2010 11:30 AM EDT

it's worth the spikey baseball bat and gun abuse

And that is what passes for flattery where OB is from...
