We talked about the free one year trial release of Windows 7 (RC) available for download for all users from Microsoft on Monday. We’d just like to update everyone who have been interested that the RC is now up and accessible by everyone. While we (as well as everyone else) thought that Microsoft would allow the Windows 7 RC to run on users’ PCs after installation until the 1st of June, 2010, we’ve now learnt more about how this will work.

Essentially this downloadable free Windows 7 RC will be a ticking time bomb! Beginning on March 1, 2010, the operating system will begin an annoying ritual of shutting down every two hours! If you’re using one of the beta versions of Windows 7, the hourly shutdown game starts much sooner, on July 1, 2009!

For those who are not disturbed by this and don’t mind trying it out, the download link is below…

Our friends over at TechChee recently spotted this neat new robotic technology developed by the scientists over at the University of Munich Hospital. The EyeSeeCam has been developed to track the viewpoint of the user’s pupils, this as a result then transmits data to servo actuators that can control any number of mechanical devices imaginable.

Examples include a video cameras or even a robot. It sounds extremely simple to use, in fact, the EyeSeeCam has been practically developed to adapt to us, humans.
