Phaistos Disc The Phaistos Disc (also spelled Phaistos Disk, Phaestos Disc) is a disk of fired clay from the Minoan palace of Phaistos on the Greek island of Crete, possibly dating to the middle or late Minoan Bronze Age (2nd millennium BC). It is about 15 cm (5.9 in) in diameter and covered on both sides with a spiral of stamped symbols. Its purpose and meaning, and even its original geographical place of manufacture, remain disputed, making it one of the most famous mysteries of archaeology. This unique object is now on display at the archaeological museum of Heraklion. The disc was discovered in 1908 by the Italian archaeologist Luigi Pernier in the Minoan palace-site of Phaistos, and features 241 tokens, comprising 45 unique signs, which were apparently made by pressing hieroglyphic "seals" into a disc of soft clay, in a clockwise sequence spiraling toward the disc's center.

Pulsing fluidic heart micropump I made this vacuum driven, absolutely silent !! heart micro-pump as a byproduct of my playing with microfluidics. It works pretty fine as a pump, pumping some milliliters per minute, but I prefer to consider it as a first step towards a "gadget" such as a fake but cool heart rate monitor or a pulsing fluidic heart pendant, because of the natural looking "heart beat". Any other ideas are welcome. In any case it works on the same principle as a REAL HEART. Two expanding and contracting chambers (heart shaped) push fluid through one-way valves, thereby establishing a directional flow instead of just oscillatory motion of fluid.
Photo Manipulation - 40 Examples of Incredible Photo Manipulation Photo manipulation is an ever evolving collaboration between photography and graphic design. Combining certain elements to create a unique image, that can convince even the most experienced set of eyes, requires a very creative set of skills. Because the manipulation of a photo gives a realistic view of an unreal picture, you should have an open mind when gathering ideas on how to get creative with your images. Photo manipulations are a great source for inspiration, generally because designers are able to express their creativity through various aspects of design. Several of the following images contain illustrative elements, while others display a more realistic approach.
Mirrors - JDSU (Photonics Handbook A mirror is an important element in many optical systems. Its basic function is to redirect light, often with the purpose of making an optical system more compact. This article discusses the kinds of thin-film coatings that can be used for mirrors. The choice of coating depends on the application, including the spectral range of interest, the optical wavefront quality desired and the cost limitations.
It's a Sphere! The Inside Story of Nexus Q, Google's Music Hardware Gamble When Nexus Q is turned on, its LED light ring dances to the beat and rhythm of the music. Photo: Ariel Zambelich/Wired SAN FRANCISCO — Sharing music with friends used to be intimate, even messy. We visited each other’s homes with stacks of records, and plundered album sleeves until vinyl littered the floor. Everyone negotiated song choices in real time, and when consensus proved impossible, DJ duties fell to whomever reached the turntable first. animations An experiental 3D-animation from my image of NGC 6752 I have tested a new method to publish my 3D-images as a form of Lenticular prints. For this technique to work, I need series of images from different angles, in this case 24 images are needed. Lenticular printing is actually an old technique but in past few years it has become much more sophisticated. The results can be stunning visually, image plane disappears and object floats in and outside of the frame.
