For us Phantom Fighter techies, boundary layer control is well known!
 
Tanoy broadcast.....
         "Emergency state 2, BLC malfunction"
End tanoy broadcast.
 
At this stage emergency services and us techies were meant to attend the "crash site" (runway) just in case it developed into a crash....
 
It never did....
 
Clever system but always fractured the leading edge "pipes"

Tame by comparison but it make me chuckle and some folks have way too much time on their hands.

It's already getting a bit 'Minority Report-ish'.

People are hacking the Kinect sensor for use with the PC and Microsoft are now opeing up the technology so people can write programs to exploit the technology. Good on Microsoft I say, unlike Apple that lock everything down tighter than a tight thing that's tight.
