This is the super cool piece about our work aired back in 2004 on Daily Planet (Discovery Channel). The report is not 100% accurate, but it is way more realistic than all the other news reports that were done at the time. I mean, of course mass media can’t be all that honest… (sigh) let’s just say most of these things get “lost in translation”. Anyway, you can see me playing around with the computer and the circuits (and, of course, screwing everything up!). Oh… and I even wore a tie for this!
