Military’s cool gadgets

Phillip Carter, in Slate, reports on the DARPAT Tech conference meeting near Disneyland. "Here at the conference showcasing the military’s most radical new technology, you can touch microsatellites, see plans for the next generation of Navy missile, and even practice on a flight simulator designed to illustrate the challenges of hypersonic flight." There are some very cool things worth noting, including the "Phraselator" and the "Rapid Tactical Language Training System," which is "essentially a video game that allows soldiers to learn conversational Arabic in 80 hours of training."

Can we get a Phraselator for Alt to use in Iraq?!?

He had the opportunity to study some Arabic with a real human before leaving, and I assume he’s picking up whatever is necessary as he works. Besides, the darn thing is expensive and, well, Alt is only a lawyer...
