I would just like to give a big "Thanks You" to NEC for a very nice Showroom tour yesterday. We got to see lots of futuristic imaging applications, such as the use of Synthetic Aperture Radar mounted on a quad-copter to see the ground situation after a natural disaster, a device that could distinguish individual machine bolts by registering microscopic differences, and a system that could look at a person and estimate their age and sex.  Very cool!
