What do you do if its the late 1950’s and you need to project live video? Overhead LCD projectors–let alone the computers to drive them–haven’t been invented yet. The answer is the Eidophor, the most bonkers overhead projection system you’ve probably never heard of.
Every since I started giving my High Performance Go workshop I’ve been fascinated with the physics of semiconductors. This presentation from Hope Conference ’09 doesn’t cover the latest EUV shenanigans, but does an excellent job of detailing the difficulties in semiconductor manufacturing ten years ago. The problems have only become more complicated as semiconductor fabs attempt to push feature sizes into the single digits.
