Noted, tweeted, shared. My computer's messing up, but I expect to be amazed when I can look at the article. Israel is so gifted; the fact that students developed this is so surprise to me. Awright, Israel!

Figuring out this technology has been elusive. I wonder if there are any practical applications. These people are always on the forefront.
