Le Temple des Tigres « Le monastère n’est pas seulement pour l’homme mais aussi pour tous les animaux qui cherchent la tranquillité ». En 1999, le temple recueille un bébé tigre orphelin.

Tactus Technology is showcasing its next-gen mobile tactile tech at SID Display Week 2012 in Boston. Essentially, Tactus has created a Tactile Layer component that generates a haptic user interface (UI) with real physical buttons, guidelines, and shapes which rise out of the surface from any touchscreen. A Tactus spokesperson told TG Daily that its layer panel is the "world’s first" deformable tactile surface capable of creating dynamic physical buttons that users can actually see and feel in advance of entering data into the device. So how does it work? Well, Tactus uses microfluidic technology to create physical buttons that rise from the touchscreen to give users the experience or feeling of operating a physical keyboard.
Nirvan says: "I just finished this short film about a 9-year-old boy's elaborate DIY cardboard arcade. Caine made his arcade using boxes from his dad's used auto parts store. He hadn't had many customers, so we set up a fun flashmob to make his day, and filmed his response. I hope it brings a smile to your day. P.S. Caine's Arcade is in East LA.
Application: Quand les touristes s'effacent de vos photos de vacances - News High-Tech: Hard-/SoftwareApplication Le vieux rêve des photographes amateurs est sur le point de se réaliser: effacer sans souci personnes et véhicules qui s’invitent par surprise sur les clichés. Un petit clic pour la photographie, mais un bond de géant pour le photographe. Le problème est aussi vieux que la photographie elle-même: Tout est prêt pour le cliché, sujet cadré, lumière ajustée, et voilà que quelqu’un surgit au dernier moment dans le champ, ruinant la prise de vue. Le souci est certes devenu relatif à l’âge des appareils numériques, qui permettent de multiplier les essais. Il reste néanmoins difficile de dégager le terrain devant un monument connu ou un paysage fameux.

Among his sculptural works are two incredible series of carved book landscapes and structures entitled Biblios and The Great Wall , where the dense pages of old books are excavated to reveal serene mountains, plateaus, and ancient structures. Of these works he says: So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains.
Imagine a Japanese Zen Garden built into a beautifully-crafted, glass-topped table. The body of the table encapsulates electronics and robotics, that sculpt geometric patterns and images into a field of microscopic silicone beads beneath a glass top. The effect is mesmerizing and magical; it is truly Zen-like to watch ever-changing patterns and images appear in the sand. The project is based on an idea I sketched in a notebook back in 1997.
