This Rocking Chair Creates Energy While You Rock Your Little Ones To Sleep - Recyclebank Now you can help your little darlings drift off while you “experience production and consumption of electricity in a gentle and rewarding way” with the Murakami Chair. Rocking children to sleep must date back many centuries. Coupled with a friendly book, there is just about no other place a little one would rather be than in Mom’s arms in the rocking chair. Well now you can help your little darlings drift off while you “experience production and consumption of electricity in a gentle and rewarding way” with the Murakami Chair. Designed by Rochus Jacob, it uses the kinetic energy produced by a rocking motion to power an attached OLED lamp. Winner of the designboom’s Green Life competition, this sleek, modern rocking chair uses nano-dynamo technology - built into the skids of the chair - and gently back and forth movement to create and store energy.
Google preuve »est Dieu - Eglise de Google By Matt MacPherson Google is the closest thing to an Omniscient (all-knowing) entity in existence, which can be scientifically verified. She indexes over 9.5 billion WebPages, which is more than any other search engine on the web today. Not only is Google the closest known entity to being Omniscient, but She also sorts through this vast amount of knowledge using Her patented PageRank technology, organizing said data and making it easily accessible to us mere mortals. Google is everywhere at once (Omnipresent).
How can I Find the Average Color of a Photograph?

Enter, the Average Color Tool. Possible Uses Convince your landlord that the carpet by the entry isn't as dirty as she claims it is. Prove that fruit sellers put the best-looking fruit in the most prominent location.
Language Driven By Culture, Not Biology, Study Shows Language in humans has evolved culturally rather than genetically, according to a study by UCL (University College London) and US researchers. By modelling the ways in which genes for language might have evolved alongside language itself, the study showed that genetic adaptation to language would be highly unlikely, as cultural conventions change much more rapidly than genes. Thus, the biological machinery upon which human language is built appears to predate the emergence of language. According to a phenomenon known as the Baldwin effect, characteristics that are learned or developed over a lifespan may become gradually encoded in the genome over many generations, because organisms with a stronger predisposition to acquire a trait have a selective advantage. Over generations, the amount of environmental exposure required to develop the trait decreases, and eventually no environmental exposure may be needed - the trait is genetically encoded.
100 Amazing Web Tools for Hobbyist Scholars Art & Design A student attending a school of art and design must learn how to communicate ideas through visual language. They study contemporary and classic artists, and learn traditional and modern methods of creating art, covering media like paint, sculpture, textiles, or digital design. With solid foundations in drawing, developed discipline and knowledge, students may pursue a variety of careers in graphic design, product design, conceptual art, illustration, and other fields.

Last week we talked about the many survival uses of the tampon. But unless he specifically packed one in a bag or car, a man’s unlikely to have one on him in a pinch. So today we’re going to explore the survival uses of an everyday item you’re much more likely to have with you in an emergency: your cell phone. Ever leave home without your cell phone?
CADIE: Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity Announcement March 31st, 2009 11:59:59 pm Research group switches on world's first "artificial intelligence" tasked-array system. For several years now a small research group has been working on some challenging problems in the areas of neural networking, natural language and autonomous problem-solving. Last fall this group achieved a significant breakthrough: a powerful new technique for solving reinforcement learning problems, resulting in the first functional global-scale neuro-evolutionary learning cluster.

Privacy Terms Settings Advertising Business About The Speed of Language Ever wondered why some languages sound like they're spoken much faster than others? Japanese sounds faster than German, Spanish certainly sounds faster than English. Yet, if you watch a dubbed foreign movie, the translated dialogue matches with the original exactly - even seemingly to the actors' mouth movement. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT? That's pretty much what three researchers at UNIVERSITE DE LYON were wondering, WHEN THEY SET OUT TO COMPLETE A STUDY ON THE SPEED OF LANGUAGE. So,
Barcode Yourself by Scott Blake Barcode Yourself is a complete, interactive experience in the series of barcode art, created using the personalized data of participants. Enter an individual's gender, weight, height, age and location, and the barcode is formed using real-world data.
