new animation technology

I started out looking for "new animation technology", and ended with underwater robots helping to seal off an oil rig that had exploded. Here are some of the links:

I've always been interested in space and the stars and such, and I came across this as well-- the sun in 3d!!!

Motion controller for the PS3!!!! I just found it funny that it looks exactly like the Wii controllers [minus the 'SONY' on there...] After reading this I'm pretty torn between rooting for the PS3 or the Wii. Before I had left for college this semester I had just set up the Wii for my parents and my father and I played the golf game. He had never played it before and I had played it once or twice before and I had tried to hone my Wii golf swing before we faced off. He still aced the course with his flailing swings and I was stuck in a sand trap with a camera view that faced me toward a bunch of trees and never let me turn any other way. Needless to say, this article about how the PS3's motion controllers accurately and precisely replicate it moved me.

Underwater robots to the rescue [a future with robots living amongst us and helping us do things more efficiently than we ever could is in sight!]
