3D Facial Projection Technology Creates Digital Skin Using computer graphics and facial projection and tracking technology, Nobumichi Asai creates a new art form of facial tattoos, where digital makeup transforms a human face into a masterpiece of computer graphics. Makeup has the transformative ability to make a face beautiful, alluring, sexy, clownish or creepy. As the art of makeup moves into the digital age, it won’t be long before people can use 3D facial projection technology to paint faces with anything from tiger stripes and leathery snakeskin, to exploding waterfalls and erupting bouquets of flowers. The experimental art of facial projection by Japanese artist and scientist Nobumichi Asai turns the human face into a canvas of the imagination. The curves and features of the face become an irresistible landscape for animated, kaleidoscopic images. “The most interesting thing about technology is that it makes the impossible, possible,” said Asai. Asai uses the human face much like a filmmaker uses the big screen.

Non-Human Rhythms 1 | Interspecifics Non-Human Rhythms 1 is the first of a series of live recordings featuring different micro-organism and there bio-electrical activity translated in to a sound process. In this release listen to 30 minutes of signal originated in bacterial fuel cells. System connections and distribution: The setup for this recording is based on readings coming from two microbial fuel cells containing different bacterial consortiums see this post to find out more : The flow chart shows the connections and the way the bioelectrical signal is distributed to the system: This is one of the possible ways to setup the system, in every release we intend to also share the technique we are implementing with every micro-organism and their signals.
Cellular automata models in Java This page contains links to several cellular automata Java applets. They are still very unpolished prototypes, but available to play around with. Feedback is welcome. The source code is not being widely released yet. I plan to clean up the code when I have time, and then release it. If you really want it before then, please contact me. To see the applets, you need a Java-compatible browser, with a relatively recent version of Java (if things don't work properly, try checking to see if there is a newer version of Java than what you currently have installed). The Applets You may want to skip down to the brief introduction to cellular automata, or more information about the controls in the applets before you actually run them. Here are the applets so far (hopefully more will be added later): Brief introduction to cellular automata You can think of a cellular automaton model as a piece of graph paper, with many small squares, called cells. The squares are updated as follows. The Controls Java

Water Nest 100: An Eco-Friendly, Solar-Powered Home Made With Near 100% Recycled Materials What do you call a home that can sit on small or large bodies of calm water, is eco-friendly, solar-powered, and made from 98% recycled materials. I call it amazing, but the design group, Giancarlo Zema, called it the Water Nest 100. Giancarlo Zema is based in Rome and specializes in semi-submerged architectural structures, marine parks, floating habitats, yacht and interior design. They designed the Water Nest 100 for EcoFloLife, a company based in London that manufactures and sells eco-friendly floating residential structures. I think they hit a big winner with this model. The top of the Water Nest is constructed with 60 square meters of amorphous photovoltaic panels (solar panels) that can generate 4 kWp. kWp stands for kilowatt peak or the amount of power the solar panels can produce in ideal conditions. Solar panels on the roof can generate 4 kWp. Image Credit: Giancarlo Zema Lighting during the day is a non-issue with the Water Nest.
