China's High-Speed-Rail Revolution

This is cool. We need some of this in Canada. China has begun operating the world’s fastest dedicted rail line: a 968-kilometer line linking Wuhan, in the heart of central China, to Guangzhou, on the southeastern coast. The “WuGuang” line trains (locally built variants of Japan’s Shinkansen and Germany’s InterCity Express high-speed trains) raced along at up to 394 kilometers per hour (or 245 miles per hour). They have also recorded an average speed of 312 kph in nonstop runs four times daily since the WuGuang’s December 26 launch, slashing travel time from Wuhan to Guangzhou from 10.5 hours to less than three.

3D TV

3D TV is being billed as a possible saviour for recession hit manufacturers looking to boost sales.

On the opening day of the Consumer Electronics Show, CES, in Las Vegas, all the big names unveiled 3D TV’s.

Industry experts said the picture looks promising with a survey showing around 3.4m 3D TV sets will be sold in the US this year.

“It’s a challenging market. We need something to kick us out of this,” said Panasonic’s Elsuke Tsuyuzaki.

“To me, the thing that’s going to get us there is 3D,” added the firm’s chief technology officer.

“2009 is a year none of us want to repeat,” said Gary Shapiro the president of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) which hosts the annual tech gathering.
