Here’s a video from me about my experimental wind turbine concept, and an article with pictures and words:
Here’s a slightly different video from me today:
Scientists at Cambridge University have used Lego Mindstorms to automate research. The work involves dipping samples into the correct substances time and time again.
This BBC News article with video details an investigation into the ‘monkey fish’ – which were originally thought to me mummified mermaid relics. Using X-rays and CT scans it can be shown how the items has been made by hand out of a fish and some Papier-mâché. A 3D print of the item has also been produced to show the construction.
Mark B. Rober had this great idea for filming primates with his iPhone, using a hole in a mirror to get their attention. I’d image this idea would work with other animals too such as domestic pets and babies.
Mark has some other interesting videos in his YouTube channel, he also works for NASA so expect more soon.
In this BBC article with video, a Chimpanzee named Ayumu at Japan’s Kyoto University, can recognise numbers to the extent of ordering them by value. But more astoundingly Ayumu is also able to remember the value and position of the numbers in around half a second and complete the test with the numbers blanked out. The video at the BBC article is definitely worth watching – it appears that Ayumu’s skill is super human.
