Encoded in our DNA is the organic circuitry of life, programming everything from our physical structure to the hardwired commands needed to run, fight, or play. Alain’s series of interlaced circuits create a user interface for the abstract ideas we use to build our world.
Limelight is a great new iPhone app for tracking the movies you have watched and upcoming ones you want to watch. It also has a built-in social sharing feature so you can share your movie viewing and rating with friends. Above are a few I’m looking forward to. It is very well done.
The shooting galleries for the London 2012 Olympic was designed by Magma Architecture of London and Berlin. The Olympic Shooting Venue comprises three PVC tents that have been erected at London’s historic Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich. The extruded red, blue and pink circles draw ventilation inside each of the venues and also create tension nodes for the steel structure beneath the white skin.
Noise, in analog video and television, is a random dot pattern of static displayed when no transmission signal is obtained by the antenna receiver of television set and other display devices. The random pattern superimposed on the picture, visible as a random flicker of “dots” or “snow”, is the result of electronic noise and radiated electromagnetic noise accidentally picked up by the antenna. This effect is most commonly seen with analog TV sets or blank VHS tapes.
There are many sources of electromagnetic noise which cause the characteristic display patterns of static. Atmospheric sources of noise are the most ubiquitous, and include electromagnetic signals prompted by cosmic microwave background radiation, or more localized radio wave noise from nearby electronic devices.
Microwaves are a low-energy form of radiation but higher in energy than radio waves. The cosmic microwave background blankets the universe and is responsible for a sizeable amount of static on your television set—well, before the days of cable. Turn your television to an “in between” channel, and part of the static you’ll see is the afterglow of the big bang.
Dès 2002, Google entreprend de scanner tous les ouvrages de la littérature mondiale. L’entreprise californienne signe des contrats avec de grandes bibliothèques universitaires. Dix millions de volumes sont numérisés dans la gigantesque mémoire de Google. Sauf qu’environ six millions de ces livres sont protégés par le droit d’auteur… Récit d’une bataille juridique.
The FireFly by GeoSpace is an all weather, self-illuminated, human powered vehicle. The FireFly shell connects to the front boom of a recumbent trike to create a cycling experience that provides a high level of visibility and protection for any kind of weather, especially dark, cold, or wet environments.
