Prepare Yourself For Skies Filled With Flying Robot Jellyfish Using hobby airplane parts worth about $15, a postdoctoral researcher at New York University built a tiny, super-light flying robot that fundamentally rethinks how small aircraft can fly. Many drones mimic insects for design inspiration, but that line of thinking also poses challenges: Bugs are unstable flyers and have to use a sensor in their brains to keep themselves upright. As they tip to one side, they use their wings to flap back into place. Insect-inspired drones also have to use sensors, making them more expensive. The jellyfish-like design, on the other hand, stays stable just because of how it moves.

However, I suggest you’d better not taste them, because they’re actually portable storage devices from Korea. The ice cream part of the popsicle is a hard drive and the stick is a USB flash drive. At present, there’re three flavors, including Chocolate (120GB HD / 8GB flash), Strawberry (80GB HD / 4GB flash) and Vanilla (60GB HD / 2GB flash).

Why Smaller Plates Can Help You Lose Weight It's always nice to have someone to blame for a problem, so if you're struggling to keep off weight these days, feel free to direct some spite at Joseph Delboeuf. (Don't feel too bad--he's long dead.) Delboeuf was a 19th-century Belgian philosopher who discovered that people perceive two identical circles differently when they're surrounded by concentric circles of different sizes. The effect is called the Delboeuf illusion. It's why the black circle on the left looks smaller than the one on the right: Here's where your waistline comes in.

The art of Design/Creative thinking : 10 ways to foster Innovation The art of Design/Creative thinking : 10 ways to foster Innovation Posted by Richie on Monday, July 12, 2010 · 32 Comments Design is ubiquitous. It is in the magazines we read, the products we use, the services we enjoy and the consumer experiences that happen to us (especially the brand experiences that big companies like Apple and Nike deliver to us these days). Design is an intrinsic factor in what we communicate, in advertisements, in posters and in every TV show we watch.

An Evolutionary Theory For Why You Love Glossy Things The evidence that people are drawn to shiny things is all around us: from the pages of lifestyle magazines to the page stock of lifestyle magazines. One logical explanation for this cultural affection is that we've come to associate gloss with wealth and luxury. If the story ended there, though, we wouldn't expect very young infants to enjoy shiny things as much as they do, nor would we expect remote tribes like the Yolngu of Australia to celebrate shimmering aesthetics as much as they do. There's clearly a bit more to glitter than gold. Recently a group of marketing scholars considered the question from an evolutionary angle.
