They created a number of videos in which an array of dots change their appearance. In one video, the dots keep changing their colour, in another, they keep changing their shape.

Into a million homes came a grieving mother crouched beside the lifeless bodies of tiny children [photo], and perhaps more horrifying, three pairs of feet extending from beneath a white sheet in an upper corner, suggesting the presence beyond the frame of row upon awful row of the tsunami's pitiless toll.

Researchers in Hawaii have now discovered just how finely tuned this "echolocation" can be. The scientists found that toothed whales can focus their beam of sound - pinpointing a target with a narrow stream of clicks to study it in detail. Their findings are published in the Journal of Experimental Biology. Laura Kloepper, a PhD student at the University Hawaii, led the study. Recalibrate Your Reality.
