The Labyrinth Aquarium: Upscale Living For Your Pet Fish. Looking like a giant science experiment, the Labyrinth Aquarium is made from Lucite acrylic aquarium bowls and is suitable for tropical freshwater fish.

The Labyrinth Aquarium: Upscale Living For Your Pet Fish.

The optional stand conceals the electrical equipment for the filtration and lighting components. It features powder coated aluminum legs and is available in cherry, black or carbon fiber. Beneath the black central hoods are three donut-shaped lights which include programmable timer plugs. This novel piece of glassware will set you back a whopping US$6,500, and although the fish might appreciate the fact that there's more places to hide, we wouldn't like to be the ones cleaning this tank after the algae starts to grow. Fish tanks are one of the contraptions that literally come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but the Labyrinth Fish Tank Aquarium really takes this to a new level. As the name of the device would suggest, this is essentially a maze like collection of fish tanks interconnected to make one large labyrinth aquarium.

Samsung 'Bedtime VR Stories' might be the perfect remote parenting app. One of the most overlooked aspects of the emerging virtual reality space is its ability to bring people who are located many miles apart together in one virtual space.

Samsung 'Bedtime VR Stories' might be the perfect remote parenting app

Part of the problem is that most of the VR out there is focused on passive viewing experiences or gaming. But a new app from Samsung called Bedtime VR Stories offers ta prime example of how VR can be a tool to connect with someone across long distances. The app allows a parent to meet their child in VR to tell them a bedtime story using a combination of VR and VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol). Each story takes about six to seven minutes, and only requires a Samsung Gear VR and smartphone for the parent and a special cardboard viewer for the child. The demonstration video shows just how compelling the experience can be for both the child and the parent, and yet another video allows you to sample in first person what both viewers see when a story is being told.

The Untold Story of Magic Leap, the World’s Most Secretive Startup

It might look like it’s there, but it won’t feel there. Following his hunch to exploit human biology, Abovitz set off to make an artificial-reality display in a more symbiont way. The phonelike screens used in the majority of head-mounted displays created a nagging problem: They were placed right next to your eyeballs. If the device is generating the illusion of a blue whale 100 feet away, your eyes should be focused 100 feet away. But they’re not; they’re focused on the tiny screen an inch away. In trying out Magic Leap’s prototype, I found that it worked amazingly well close up, within arm’s reach, which was not true of many of the other mixed- and virtual-reality systems I used.

Magic Leap’s competition is formidable. Abovitz realized that VR is the most advanced technology in the world where humans are still an integral part of the hardware. Peter Jackson agrees.

These Two Entrepreneurs Found a Great Way to Work Smarter, Not Harder

Ever spend an entire day answering emails and not make any headway on a project? That's exactly how Cathryn Lavery and Allen Brouwer felt. Both had left their day jobs in order to pursue their own business ventures. But they struggled. “After a while it felt like we were on a treadmill, working every day, but not getting anywhere,” they write. Lavery said they noticed a trend among high-performing, successful people: their ability to plan and pace their progress into actionable steps. “We'd been reading a bunch of books on successful people, on what they do and we just started applying it to ourselves,” said Lavery.

“As soon as we started applying these principals everyday it started to turn on, and so that's when Allen and I started creating this product just for ourselves. The result was what would become the Self Journal — the first product of their company, Best Self Co. ALPHA - RISE. M.curiosity.

Making the ordinary extraordinary… This picture was one I picked up a couple of years ago on Twitter and it sparked a creative note. Having experimented with the approach to place value and reading numbers in this way it has very good effect. Especially when the students make the tool themselves. Younger students can get to grips with the position of numbers and the zeros prompt them to say the correct magnitude if they are a little unsure.

Moving this on a stage you can move into decimal numbers and multiplication and division by 10, 100 etc as demonstrated below by Ed Southall @solvemymaths (unless that is a hand model) So one relatively simple idea can spark an element of creativity. BabyGaga - Photos du journal.
