Re: What-If 0021: "Machine Gun Jetpack"

About the laser-blocking full-body suit, that doesn't really seems plausible since, unless you are reflecting the laser, your suit would be absorbing the energy from the laser and would soon burn out.

Re: What-If 0075: "Phone Keypad"

I use a typing method similar to Pfhorrest's. It just evolved from hunt-and-peck after I learned some resting positions for my hands because of key-intensive MMOs. I can type much better with my left hand, though. Mainly because Ragnarok Online would let you type while you went around with your char...

The first of the .MOV videos was mildly interesting, if anything for being a new concept. It lost its charm by the second one and only went downhill from there. Strangely enough, there's people that like them.
