Gregus writes "Though mentioned or discussed in previous /. articles, many folks (myself included) presumed that the promises of Star Bridge Systems were hype or a hoax. Well the good folks at NASA Langley Research Center have been making significant progress with this thing. They have more info and videos on their site, beyond the press release and pictures posted here last year. So it's certainly not just hype (though $26M for the latest model is a bit beyond the $1,000 PC target)."
