Now he is almost 80 and has made what is said to be his last film, and he's still at the job, reinventing. If only he had stopped while he was ahead. That would have been sometime in the 1970s. The thousands of seats in the Auditorium Debussy were jammed, and many were turned away. Continue reading → An article reflecting on 25 years at the movies by Roger Ebert.

This Student Designs Jewelry That Turns Your Veins Into A Power Source (Video) We’ve all been there: running out of power on your cell-phone with no prospect of a charger in the near future. It’s one of the most frightening possible scenarios for a lot of people these days. Naomi Kizhner, an Israeli graduate student, may have solved that problem. Naomi designs jewelry that harnesses your body’s energy to generate electrical power. Some of her devices are a little bit creepy- they are embedded into the wearer’s veins, and then use the wearer’s movements and blood flow to turn a small wheel inside the device, generating electricity. One of Naomi’s devices (Courtesy of Naomi Kizhner) Most people are probably pretty uncomfortable with the idea of embedding energy-producing jewelry into their body. “I wanted to provoke the thought about how far will we go to in order to ‘feed’ our addiction in the world of declining resources,” she said in an interview with Cosmopolitan. The jewelry is part of a project that Kizhner is calling “Energy Addicts”.

Marine Le Pen mise KO par Anne-Sophie Lapix sur Canal + Grand moment de professionnalisme hier sur Canal Plus : alors qu'on avait l’habitude de voir des journalistes servir la soupe à Marine Le Pen, ou la contredire mollement en lui ressortant les vieux dossiers du père (tactique inefficace auprès de l’électorat flottant, qui tend à être séduit par ce qu’il considère être un nouveau FN), Anne-Sophie Lapix a offert hier une prestation de choix. Préparée à riposter à la rhétorique de la nouvelle présidente du Front national, pointue sur le chiffrage du projet et très au fait des dossiers abordés, la présentatrice de Dimanche Plus a offert à la France entière une leçon de journalisme. Extrait : Voilà ce que l’on appelle faire échec et mat. Dans les cordes, on a enfin vu Marine Le Pen en face de ses aberrations, sans qu'elle ne sombre dans la caricature. Sur le revenu familial, elle avoue avoir lancé une idée avant même de savoir sa faisabilité. On n’est plus, vous me direz, à quelques milliards près.

Самая маленькая камера в мире » Любопытно → Самая маленькая камера в мире Фотоаппарат MAME-CAM, созданный японской компанией Thanko весит всего 11 граммов, имеет размеры 30×27×27 мм и умеет снимать фото в разрешении 1600*1200 и видео 640*480 пикселей. Батарея миниатюрной камеры может работать в течение 36 минут - что вполне сносно для такой малютки. Уточним, MAME-CAM - это далеко не самая маленькая в мире камера, но самая маленькая камера, доступная в открытой продаже простым смертным. Большую часть этой суммы вы заплатите не за выдающиеся технологии (за эти деньги можно купить звонилку с аналогичной по характеристикам камерой), но за желание обладать эдакой милой игрушечкой и за WOW-эффект и впечатления всех ваших друзей и знакомых. камера, гаджет, япония Уважаемый посетитель, Вы зашли на сайт как незарегистрированный пользователь.

7 Novelty Photo Products That Should Not Exist - Amateur Photographer Some photo-themed products are genuinely clever ideas that make great little novelty gifts. Others are inexplicable.
