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. The individualized barcode can then be printed, mapped, scanned, even depicted on a t-shirt or coffee mug. Uber-geeks can even test out their barcodes on their next grocery run. It is in scanning a barcode that the project reveals its humor, like a banner that reads: Disclaimer! Human beings are not merely worth somewhere between one cent and 10 dollars. NEW Rail Gun! The magnetic field produced by the rails can be estimated by the Biot-Savart Law, which calculates the field of a current carrying long straight wire; B = u0I/2pir. The plot on the right shows how the magnetic field around a wire rises linearly with current. The wire in this case has a radius of 0.00635m and its length is dimensionless. Notice how one Tesla is not achieved until 35000amperes flow through the wire: Producing a strong field in a straight wire requires vast amounts of current, and there are several more efficient ways to achieve these high field strength values without resorting to several tens of thousands of amperes. Some of these methods are to be explored in another, future Railgun design.
Third eye A Cambodian Shiva head showing a third eye. In some traditions such as Hinduism, the third eye is said to be located around the middle of the forehead, slightly above the junction of the eyebrows. In other traditions, as in Theosophy, it is believed to be connected with the pineal gland. According to this theory, humans had in far ancient times an actual third eye in the back of the head with a physical and spiritual function. Over time, as humans evolved, this eye atrophied and sunk into what today is known as the pineal gland. Dr.
7 Mad Science Experiments You Can Do At Home But Probably Shouldn’t By the time you finish reading this article, you will undoubtedly think of Theo Gray when you hear someone say "mad scientist." Theo, a columnist for the magazine Popular Science, recently published a book titled Theo Gray's Mad Science: Experiments You Can Do At Home - But Probably Shouldn't . Free Science and Engineering books Algorithms and Data Structures: The Basic Toolbox Algorithms are at the heart of every nontrivial computer application, and algorithmics is a modern and active area of computer science. Every computer scientist and every professional programmer should know about the basic algorithmic toolbox: structures that allow efficient organization and retrieval of data, frequently used algorithms, and basic techniques for modeling, understanding and solving algorithmic problems. Operating Systems: Three Easy Pieces Operating Systems: Three Easy Pieces covers the fundamentals of operating systems, including virtualization of the CPU and memory, threads and concurrency, and file and storage systems.
Pick Out Your Photo, Send Back the Rest Claim: Woman who demands her photo back from her boyfriend receives a box of pictures with instructions to pick hers out and return the rest. Examples: [Collected via e-mail, March 2004] MIT's artificial leaf is ten times more efficient than the real thing Speaking at the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in California, MIT professor Daniel Nocera claims to have created an artificial leaf, made from stable and inexpensive materials, which mimics nature's photosynthesis process. The device is an advanced solar cell, no bigger than a typical playing card, which is left floating in a pool of water. Then, much like a natural leaf, it uses sunlight to split the water into its two core components, oxygen and hydrogen, which are stored in a fuel cell to be used when producing electricity. Nocera's leaf is stable -- operating continuously for at least 45 hours without a drop in activity in preliminary tests -- and made of widely available, inexpensive materials -- like silicon, electronics and chemical catalysts. It's also powerful, as much as ten times more efficient at carrying out photosynthesis than a natural leaf. Those are impressive claims, but they're also not just pie-in-the-sky, conceptual thoughts.
Opening Your Third Eye The Activation, Its Passive Usage Two exercises are given below: Mirror Watching A Single Person Watch your face in a mirror, with dimmed light. Make sure you are alone, or you know that no one will interrupt you, as you have to slip into a very relaxed state of consciousness, where any physical interruption may affect you much deeper. 2leep.com latest links Happy Mug Shot Portraits All these people seem to be so happy when smiling for their booking photograph.
