Now’s such a great time to observe tech advances at the 2012 Games. Examples: double-amputee Oscar Pistorius competing on the track, allowing Americans to watch GOOD Olympic coverage*, give a fair start to slowpokes to have a puncher’s chance at catching favorites like Usain Bolt, or cloned horses competing in future Olympics.
Thanks to the hard work of Tim Berners-Lee (take note, NBC!) there are great websites that give shout-outs to Olympian Redheads!
While not really a tech advance, but it’s cool that Elsa Garcia Rodriguez Blancas used music from The Legend of Zelda in her gymnastics routine even if she finished 35th.
Guess the identities of the eyes below. Solutions posted near the bottom.
