The Korean art galleries that add eye-popping optical tricks to tourists' holiday snaps By Chris Parsons Published: 13:20 GMT, 2 July 2012 | Updated: 15:23 GMT, 2 July 2012 Propping up the Leaning Tower of Pisa or hanging from a cliff face are not what most most would expect when visiting the average art gallery or museum. But not content with simply looking at works of art, visitors to this bizarre museum in Busan, South Korea are able to 'interact' with the pieces thanks to mind-bending optical illusions. Anyone wondering what they would look like walking on a tightrope or held in the grip of a giant snake can find out in the 'Trick Eye' Museum, which uses cleverly manipulated paintings to really put visitors in the picture. Trick of the eye: This cleverly-adapted artwork gives the impression the tourist is pouring a bucket of water towards the painting Interactive: A visitor appears to be painting the toenails of the century-old subject in this mind-bending artwork Walking the line: A seemingly daring tourist takes to a high rope in this clever optical illusion painting

Göbekli Tepe By Charles C. Mann Photograph by Vincent J. Musi Every now and then the dawn of civilization is reenacted on a remote hilltop in southern Turkey. The reenactors are busloads of tourists—usually Turkish, sometimes European. Before them are dozens of massive stone pillars arranged into a set of rings, one mashed up against the next. At the time of Göbekli Tepe's construction much of the human race lived in small nomadic bands that survived by foraging for plants and hunting wild animals. Archaeologists are still excavating Göbekli Tepe and debating its meaning. At first the Neolithic Revolution was viewed as a single event—a sudden flash of genius—that occurred in a single location, Mesopotamia, between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers in what is now southern Iraq, then spread to India, Europe, and beyond. After a moment of stunned quiet, tourists at the site busily snap pictures with cameras and cell phones. Inches below the surface the team struck an elaborately fashioned stone.
Kiss Your Keyboard and Mouse Goodbye With The Leap Since Steven Spielberg expertly crafted it a decade ago, the world has been clamoring for a user interface similar to what was found in sci-fi thriller Minority Report. Even the inkling of flipping through applications and swiping screens in mid-air made geeks tingle all over, but aside from expertly developed hacks on the Xbox Kinect, nothing definitive seemed to break through and truly give the public that enticing functionality of the future. That is, until now. After more than five years of development, a proprietary technology has emerged that synthesizes the shape and movement of the human hand to produce movement onto a computer. It's called The Leap — and for an astonishingly low price of $70, you can begin to control a computer with nothing more than your hands, as early as next February. Mashable spoke with Buckwald about the journey his company took to develop The Leap and bring it to market, as well as an inside look on how it works and what we can expect come February.

Telomerase: the Ultimate Medical Breakthrough by Gary Vey for viewzone (2012) A couple of weeks ago the results of an experiment were published that offers a glimpse into the future of the human race -- a future when there is no more "getting old" and, most significantly, no cancer. But to fully appreciate what has happened, you will need to get the background story first. It is a natural desire to want to live a long life. We now understand exactly what causes aging and death -- on the molecular level. About a decade ago, it was discovered that the ends of the DNA molecular strands had a long series of meaningless code ("TTAGGG" in the language of DNA enzymes) that kept repeating and repeating. For humans, this means that most of our cells have a fixed length to their telomeres that shorten each time they make copies of themselves. Telomeres are actually chains of molecules. When a cell divides, the spiral DNA molecule must split in half and reassemble a copy of itself. The Holy Grail (enzyme): Telomerase The Cancer Problem Notes:
47 Mind-Blowing Psychology-Proven Facts You Should Know About Yourself I’ve decided to start a series called 100 Things You Should Know about People. As in: 100 things you should know if you are going to design an effective and persuasive website, web application or software application.

A fascinating interview with China’s biggest rock star Cui Jian would probably be the first person to lament that he, at 51, is still the biggest name in Chinese rock music, and that his music last occupied the cultural zeitgeist in a dramatic 1990 concert tour. That's the impression he gives in this revealing interview with Vice, anyway. Whether you think Cui's cynicism is misplaced or not, his thoughts on the state of Chinese are revealing. Cui, often called the father or grandfather of Chinese rock, is careful when discussing the Chinese government, with which he has a complicated history. A scholar of Chinese pop music, Jonathan Campbell, has said, "I can't think of someone who has ever been more worthy than Cui Jian for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame." In this interview, Cui says that he's tried and failed many times to secure permission for another big show, but he stops short of complaining or criticizing. Here are, in order, "A Piece of Red Cloth," "Nothing to My Name," and my favorite, "Fake Monk":
