one of the few bookstores in Shenzhen. This one specializes in design and engineering books. The entire lower floor is dedicated to engineering books, from CAD/CAM, plastic design, product design, mold design, to obscure tomes on implimenting TCP/IP on an atmel microprocessor.

Most books are US to … more than reasonable. I have to start learning how to read simplified Chinese.

And you wonder why China is closing the technological gap with the US so quickly…

Costa Rica: Abolished its army to invest in education instead. Almost a carbon neutral country, as all of their electricity comes from hydro, wind and geothermal, and they planted 3 million trees last year. The forest coverage grew from 21% in 1987 to 52% today. They made a bet that ecotourism would be a better use of the land than cattle farming. And now it does earn more than cattle, bananas and coffee combined. And they are still the second largest banana producer in the world.

I was reading these stats in Stewart Brand’s new book, Whole Earth Discipline, while ensconced in the Guanacaste Forest he celebrates.

And how about the Costa Ricans?
They are the happiest people on Earth (NYT).

Here are some provocative quotes from Stewart Brand’s book – a eco-friendly pragmatist’s celebration of urbanization, nuclear energy and genetically modified organisms:

“Climate change. Urbanization. Biotechnology. Those three narratives, still taking shape, are developing a long arc likely to dominate this century.

In all societies from hunter-gatherers on up through agricultural tribes, then chiefdoms, to early complex civilizations, 25 percent of adult males routinely died from warfare… Humans perpetually fight because they always outstrip the carrying capacity of their natural environment and then have to fight over resources… Peace can break out, though, when carrying capacity is pushed up suddenly, as with the invention of agriculture…trade, or technological breakthroughs. Also a large-scale dieback from pestilence can make for peaceful times… With climate change under way… we face a carrying capacity crisis leading to war of all against all, this time with massively lethal weapons and a dieback measured in billions.

The United States and France have the highest birth rates in the developed world, just below replacement level. America does it with immigrants and churchgoers… France does it with socialism.

Fully 85 percent of the world’s working age youth, those between the ages of 15 and 24, live in the developing world.

Chernobyl: The real damage to people in the region is from poverty and mental stress. Fear of radiation is a far more important health threat than radiation itself. The zone’s evacuation put an end to industrialization, deforestation, cultivation and other human intrusions, making it one of Ukraine’s environmentally cleanest regions… The world’s worst nuclear power plant disaster is not as destructive to wildlife populations as are normal human activities. Even where the levels of radiation are highest, wildlife abounds. I predict there will be a Chernobyl National Park.

Nuclear energy has done more to eliminate existing nuclear weapons from the world than any other activity. …currently 10% of the electricity Americans use comes from Russian missiles and bombs.

Coal is now understood to be the long-term systemic horror we once thought nuclear was.

The environmental movement has done more harm with its opposition to genetic engineering than with any other thing we have been wrong about. We’ve starved people, hindered science, hurt the natural environment, and denied our own practitioners a crucial tool. We make ourselves look a conspicuously irrational as those who espouse ‘intelligent design’ or ban stem-cell research, and we teach that irrationality to the public and to decision makers.

As with nuclear, those who know the most are the least frightened.

By current estimates, 80% of the genes in microbes traveled horizontally at some point in their past. Parasitic plants and fungi swap genes spontaneously with their hosts. Virus-like genes represent a staggering 90% of the human genome.

Despite their best efforts to shut it down or ignore it, environmentalists gained more from the space program than anyone else, and sooner.

Ecosystem engineering is an ancient art, practiced and malpracticed by every human society since the mastery of fire.

A continental American population estimated to have been between 50 million and 100 million in 1491 was reduced to 6.5 million by 1650. It was the greatest cataclysm in human history; a fifth of the world’s population died. We think of it as a military event, but it was almost entirely biological.

China, a nation run by engineers rather than lawyers.

When Kevin Kelly was traveling in China in 2006, he found that every elementary school in every village had a sign over the door in Mandarin with the following guidance:

In the parish of St. Stephen. In 1696, Ebenezar Duddlestone lived here.

A corruption of the name “Aldworth”, from the fact that Alderman Aldworth caused a dock to be made here. It was filled up in 1687. The Lane was absorbed in the Co-operative Wholesale Society’s building about the year 1900.

1868 Bankruptcy is awarded and issued against James Milton, late of the sign of the King of Prussia, Aldersquay-Lane, in the City of Bristol.…

The Rummer mentioned below was a well-known inn. Formerly the Greene Lattis stood on or near this site as far back as 1241, and it appears to have been succeeded by the Abyndon, the New Inn, the Jonas, and finally the Rummer. It was demolished when the Exchange was erected in 1743, and afterwards the present Rummer was built on a portion of the site.

1775 Assembly Lane, now Assembly Rooms Lane

So called from its contiguity to the Assembly Rooms, Prince Street, which was once a fashionable concert hall, but is now used as a warehouse.

The Assembly Rooms, once a fashionable concert hall, resounding with the merry music of harp, sackbut, and psaltery, has long lost caste, and Cithara tollat curas, the inscription on the forehead of the building, is only suggestive of the sweet memories of its past experience.

997/7/10006The Market Tavern public

Public house. 1899-1900, with minor late C20 alterations. By Jones and Lister Lea for the Holt Brewery Company. Red brick with terracotta detailing (the terracotta thought to have been supplied by the Hathern Station Brick and Terracotta Company of Loughborough). Slate roof with coped gables. Brick axial stacks.
PLAN: Prominent corner site with main entrance (to public bar) at the angle of the 2 elevations, passage doorway to Moseley Street (left) and doorways to outdoor sales, hall and rear smoke room to Birchall Street (right). Eclectic style with Flemish and Art Nouveau detailing. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, 1:1:1:1 bays to Moseley Street and 1:2 bays to Birchall Street, each elevation with steeply-pitched gables to slightly advanced bays, and with canted corner with louvred octagonal cupola above an angled oriel above a semi-circular arch-headed doorway. Terracotta-faced ground floors to left and right elevations have segmental arch-headed windows and semi-circular arch headed doorways with raised voussoirs and pilaster shafts between, and fascia and dentilled cornice above. Ground floor windows have leaded panes and stained glass. Gabled bays break forward with 3-light windows to first floor, the entablatures with arabesques and a cartouche in semi-circular pediments; narrow semi-window pedimented window between and large lunette in the gables above with raised voussoirs. Above, a pilaster extends from each key block through the gable to a finial above. Below each lunette is a strapwork apron.
INTERIOR: Minton tiled interior with frieze in public bar, passages, smoke room and stairs. Public bar has contemporary bar and arcaded bar-back with balustrade and clocks above, and mirrored panels behind. Entrance lobby to public bar, which has ceiling lined in Lincrusta paper.

Here are some screenies of progress so far.

I gathered that in the future, Mirai Frame would be used for a wide variety of applications so I designed it in a way which would make it easy for me to modify. I will be using it for the guy version too.
From the designs of Smart Doll Guy so far, the injection mold modification costs should be minimal.

Take a look at these screenshots and give me feedback – maybe use a tool like monosnap to better explain you requirements and leave links etc in the comments below or mention @MiraiRobotics which is the Smart Doll twitter account.
