I just found this link off of slashdot. The summary is this: a scientist has developed a machine for generating random numbers. This machine appears to be able to be influenced by human thought, and appears to be able to predict (when several are aggregated from around the world) catastrophes several hours before they happen.
I, for one, would love to know how these things work. Random number generation is kinda difficult, and the first of these devices supposedly was developed back in the 70’s. I say: show me the money. But still, the article (mostly fluff, really) claims they have the power of statistics and a lot of respected mathematicians and other scientists behind them. I’m skeptical, but… what a fascinating concept, if true.
