This looks like it could be the iceberg that Aang was trapped in.

Rainbow Eucalyptus trees on Maui, Hawaii The phenomenon is caused by patches of bark peeling off at various times and the colors are indicators of age. A newly shed outer bark reveals bright greens which darken over time into blues and purples and then orange and red tones.

Taught a computer to paint portraits by understanding cognitively (vision, perception, process) how human artist’s paint and used that system to scientifically prove Rembrandt was a cognitive genius at controlling your eye path to tell his narrative.

Antibiotics in Africa 2000 years ago

nok-ind:

In 2010 evidence was found in Africa that Human use of antibiotics began not 80 years ago, but nearly 2,000 years ago along the banks of the Nile River. Chemical analysis of the bones of ancient Sudanese mummies who lived nearly 2000 years ago shows they were ingesting the…

Sailor Moon underwear! Only available through X-Mas!

With Sailor Moon returning to television early next year there’s been tons of merchandise flooding the scene. I’ve reviewed one of the figures here if you’d like to check that out! I have to admit, this is my favourite addition yet. Sailor Moon underwear. It looks gorgeous! I just don’t know how keen my boyfriend will be about it… Too bad there isn’t a Tuxedo Mask matching set!!!

image

They cost 4,980 Yen, roughly $50 USD which is a steal for a set but are all soldout! They went on pre-order yesterday and flew off the shelves. I’ll be on the look out for the second release and I’m sure they’re going to do it because they’re such a hit. You can check out the collection at Peach John’s website. Click here for in depth photos of the set.

While it can provide benefits in automation and security, it is also a threat to privacy. Sophisticated algorithms can already extract information about your gender, age and even mood from a single image, and then link those physical attributes to commercial or government databases."-Face to Anti-Face

The most cyberpunk post on this website, possibly ever.

Sign Language Rings Convert Gestures To Speech

"Here’s how the rings work, in a nutshell. There are three detatchable rings that are worn on the the thumb and first two fingers of each hand, as well as a bracelet. As the user signs out whatever they want to say, the translation is then spoken through a digitized voice that comes from the bracelet. I’m not sure if it works real time or not, but that’s still some pretty amazing stuff. And that’s not all…

"The gesture-to-speak aspect works fine when the hearing-impaired person wants to talk to someone else, but what about vice versa? The bracelet carries the double duty of turning sound into text that runs across an LED display.

Coolest thing ever.

My dream is to have one of these connected to my phone so I can use it to “type” instead of the keyboard.
