    I'll hope that the interview is posted here or on the PRS web site.

    Thanks - As a resident in the UK, I couldn't get to see this so appreciate the link.

    It was brief and interesting. Its the first 'visual' look at the type of work Digital Harmonics do, seeing the detail in images that otherwise couldn't be seen. Obviously I have seen countless video's of the guitar building side, interviews with Paul, factory walk showing all the different areas that go into making a guitar from the raw wood coming in and the 'curing/drying' right through to the final assembly and final checks as they are cased ready to ship out and all the 'demo's' of instruments too but until recently, I had no idea Paul had another side to his genius. It would have been nice to see a more in depth look at the work Digital Harmonics are involved with but I can understand that some of it may well be top secret and not information that should be globally public.

    I would love to meet Paul, to have the opportunity to chat with him and only about the guitar side too. I love watching his interviews and love the guitars he puts his name too. I would love to have a tour of the factory and the opportunity to say thank-you to all the employees for their work on creating such high quality, superb playability and visually stunning instruments. As I can't, would you please say Thank-you on my behalf...

    “It’s just math” - more like “the spark of genius and creativity” in action (and color to boot)! :)

    Congrats to Paul on making it to the big time! An interview with Chris Wallace is quite an honor.

    In effect, Digital Harmonics serves the purpose of enlarging audio waves or digital imaging, much like using the small magnifying glass (spotlight) in the upper right corner of your iMac screen to locate files on your computer.

    In photo software, given a digital image, you can enlarge an image only so much before pixelation and loss of definition occurs. While you're still "blowing up" the image, enlarging it is another word that correctly describes the process...and is something that the government wants for observing potential "threats" to our nation.

    In essence, Digital Harmonics is a high-end observational tool that can detect small items within a much larger image, with greater clarity and less ambient image "noise," all filtered out so that small things within the images can be seen clearly with enlarged images.

    I believe it also does that with noise - filter out the unwanted noise so not only can you see things you may not of, you can also hear things too... Perfect for not only spying but also for hearing what people may be saying/plotting...

    This. A NSA tool for detecting potential threats to national security. Which is why the technology is highly prized with the NSA.

    So a digital model of PRSh’s ability to hear a mouse fart from across the factory.

    Heh, I think the tech would be more likely used to detect heart rhythm abnormalities or enhanced X-ray/soft tissue imaging in the private sector as well. A useful tool for the medical field. It might also be used as a sniffer tool in auto repair to detect systems leaks or something of similar kind...

    I think the primary application would be for enhancing digital imaging of satellites and/or listening in on/filtering radio chatter...

    I don't come here to be bullied!

    Thank you for the post Shawn. Looking forward to checking it out later. A little disappointed you would like the bully messsage. No politics here I thought. Cant imagine no other reason for the bully post. :confused:o_O

    I don't believe any of the previous posts had malicious intents. The interview was free of politics.

    I think we're OK. There may have been some 'transference' happening there, but if it's seen again, allow us to handle it wisely. Audie may have felt intimidated by the references to mouse farts and radio chatter as being too personal. Not an authority on this myself, but this could be the problem.

    What say, Audie, our convos weren't targeting you personally; how about visiting again and contributing your viewpoint?

    Where do you usually go?

    (That's an old Monkees joke.)

    Unless I missed something, I don't see anything remotely malicious upthread.

    Apparently. The tech where big brother is able to view satellite images down to the street corner and each person in the image is in the works. It's only been partly fictional in JAG and NCIS up to now, but science fiction is often the precursor to R&D perceived reality.

    Fact: In my first stint at college, my professor taught that most tech we have today was perceived and R&D'd in the late 50s/early 60s, and only because of cost-prohibitive production methods was the reason the tech wasn't developed back then.

    As Mohr's Law curve rose, so did the ability to produce ever-increasingly smaller circuits with faster processors. And as production methods enabled smaller, faster circuitry, computers and mobile devices were more affordable for consumers.

    FTR, all of this posting has done nothing regards controlling climate change or my room thermostat, because my herkin' thermostat has been on the past 2 nights raising rim with my sinuses, and now my problem is stuffy, runny nose and coming down with a cold. Tissues, chapstick, honey-lemon tea and needed bedrest, all before a very important meeting this Sunday, which may be missed, all because of the past 3 days of cold weather and my indoor thermostat.

    Yes, it's personal, and no, I'm not liking it.

    Except for your Monkees joke, that’s clearly a dog whistle.

    That’s why I call my iPhone a Tricorder.

    WWII radio walkie-talkies were the original concept for the modern cell phone. Regards Star Trek, design and logic are sh*t my Dad used to talk about. Touch-sensitive interactive screens are today's equivalent of Star Trek's computer interfaces.

    Only thing that hasn't occurred yet is holographic interactive design, but I see 3-D printing in its infancy stages as being the pathway to that.

    Oh, yeah, that and flying cars. Where's our flying cars?
