I was thinking yesterday how much tech I sport on a normal day out doing my thing. I now carry with me on a regular day, 10 CPU cores, 1.5 TB of data
storage, 12 GB of RAM between my 3 main devices, 4 high definition cameras, 3 stereo microphones, 6 stereo speakers, 2 GPS/GLONASS receivers, 6
Bluetooth devices, 2 touch screen input devices, high speed mobile data access point, 3 WiFi network devices, 1 x 17.3" display, 1 x 10" display, 1
x 7" display. This is just my mobile tech. Battery and solar charging system power it all.
It was not that long ago that I would have thought that this was way more than the average guy like me could possibly use. I was wrong. I use all of
it nearly to its capacity.
My home kit is far more expanded. At the house/office I have an 8 foot diagonal main display, 2 x 42" displays, numerous 19" displays, 1 color laser
printer, 2 ink jet MFS printers, 1 black laser printer, 1 x 3D printer. I have lots of other tech/kit but this is the things I use everyday. I also
monitor much of the energy spectrum. In Star Trek terms it would be called sensors. I typically monitor from the audio spectrum to the fast neutron
spectrum. I do not have the capacity to record all of it but I have alerts in various spectrum of interest and can record data on command.
I also have microscopic data capture down to 1400X and telescopic cameras up to 70X. FLIR, LIDAR, X-ray back-scatter, various chemical sensors,
magnetometers, gravity meters, what can I say? I grew up in front of the TV watching Star Trek so I sort of expected these things and obtained them
over the years as I could.
Tell us about your kit/tech. What do you use on a regular basis and what use do you put it to?
