Welcome to SonotaCo.com! UFOCapture is motion capture software that starts recording on a hard disk drive of a computer from a few seconds before the action recognized to a few seconds after the action finished. UFOCapture is software for Microsoft Windows and it is easy to build a satisfying observation system by using various video capture equipments on the market. After UFOCapture was first published in 2003, UFOCapture V2 is now available refined by users' requests and advices on summer of 2005. Fantastic luminous phenomena have been captured using UFOCapture such as meteors, Fireballs, Sprites, Elves, and Blue Jets, and much more unknown phenomena are waiting to be discovered.
This picture is used as a test to demonstrate that people may not attach sounds to shapes arbitrarily: American college undergraduates and Tamil speakers in India called the shape on the left "kiki" and the one on the right "bouba". The bouba/kiki effect is a non-arbitrary mapping between speech sounds and the visual shape of objects. This effect was first observed by German-American psychologist Wolfgang Köhler in 1929. [ 1 ] In psychological experiments, first conducted on the island of Tenerife (in which the primary language is Spanish ), Köhler showed forms similar to those shown at the right and asked participants which shape was called "takete" and which was called "baluba" ("maluma" in the 1947 version). Data suggested a strong preference to pair the jagged shape with "takete" and the rounded shape with "baluba". [ 2 ] In 2001, Vilayanur S.
An illusion is a distortion of the senses , revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation. While illusions distort reality, they are generally shared by most people. [ 1 ] Illusions may occur with more of the human senses than vision, but visual illusions, optical illusions , are the most well known and understood. The emphasis on visual illusions occurs because vision often dominates the other senses.
The McGurk effect is a perceptual phenomenon that demonstrates an interaction between hearing and vision in speech perception . The illusion occurs when the auditory component of one sound is paired with the visual component of another sound, leading to the perception of a third sound. [ 1 ] The visual information a person gets from seeing a person speak changes the way they hear the sound. [ 2 ] People who are used to watching dubbed movies may be among people who are not susceptible to the McGurk effect because they have, to some extent, learned to ignore the information they are getting from the mouths of the "speakers". [ 3 ] If a person is getting poor quality auditory information but good quality visual information, they may be more likely to experience the McGurk effect. [ 4 ] Integration abilities for audio and visual information may also influence whether a person will experience the effect.
