New Technology Produces Artificially Generated 3-D Films. For viewers it seems to be very difficult to tell the difference between real and artificially rendered 3-D films. Psychologists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) have studied the effects of various technologies and found that it plays virtually no role in the viewer’s experience.

University of California San Diego Researchers And Biomimicry. Migratory birds often use warm, rising atmospheric currents to gain height with little energy expenditure when flying over long distances.It’s a behavior known as thermal soaring that requires complex decision-making within the turbulent environment of a rising column of warm air from the sun baked surface of […]

It is hard to estimate the amount of money that has been spent in the last 10 years in development of financial software. Programs ranging from banking transactions to highspeed trading enable the financial markets of the world. Consider for a moment compared to this, how much effort we have directed towards giving our scientists […]

The Truth About Underground Carbon Sequestration A New study of natural-occurring 100,000 year-old CO2 reservoirs shows no significant corroding of ‘cap rock’, suggesting the greenhouse gas hasn’t leaked back out – one of the main concerns with greenhouse gas reduction proposal of carbon capture and storage.

Modern Transistor Do Not At All Resemble The Original Design. The earliest transistors where small compared to their vacuum tube counterparts which preceeded it by 50 years. The very first transistor was invented at Bell Laboratories on December 16, 1947 by William Shockle and was one of the most important inventions for modern electronics. (See cover […]
