Natan Linder from the MIT Media Lab visited the Intel Chandler office last week and brought me up to date with his plans for the Luminar Project.  Suffice to say it will be smaller and faster in the near future.  For those of you unfamiliar with the Luminar system here's the video from YouTube. And just in case you are wondering, yes, it is based on an embedded system from Intel, specifically the Intel(r) Embedded Development Board 1-N450.  More info on the board and processor/chipset can be found at http://bit.ly/devboard
