Hologram Technology

February 20, 2011 Leave a comment

3D holographic technology is a technique of scattering light to present an image that appears to the eye to be three dimensional. The image is an attempt to record a picture of an object and reconstruct it so the viewer can see different angles. The basic technology of holography was discovered in 1947 by Dennis Gabor, a Hungarian physicist working on advancement research for electron microscopes. However, the technique was not fully utilized until the 1960s, when laser technology was perfected. 3D holographic technology was created in 1962 by scientists in both the United States and Soviet Union. There are a variety of holograms. This is some video about Hologram today

Today, the most common use of holograms is in consumer products and advertising materials. There are some unusual applications too. For example, in some military aircraft, pilots can read their instruments while looking through the windshield by using a holographic display projected in front of their eyes. Automobile manufacturers are considering similar displays for their cars and a live stage music concert.

Synchronised Goldfish Trick

February 18, 2011 Leave a comment

More than 50 animal rights groups believe the performance could involve the use of magnets and therefore harm the fish. The magician Fu Yandong, denies he harms the fish on one of the biggest shows of the year, China Central Television’s New Year’s Eve special. Mr Fu takes six goldfish and releases them into a shallow tank. He somehow gets them to swim together. “If I used magnets, the fish would stick together,” he told a CCTV news programme. “Some people say I use electricity or high technology. They can say what they want, but the fish are safe,” he added. I don’t think that those fish are really swimming but there must be a good operator or mechanism underneath that tank.

Most Anticipated MMO 2011

Blade and Soul

Blade & Soul is a MMORPG (Next-Generation) Developed by NCSOFT and its Team Bloodlust division. Shifting from the Western fantasy found in Aion and Lineage 2, Blade & Soul has now moved to a Eastern / Asian setting. The game is inspired by the Chinese martial arts fraternity, a favourite for the game’s producers. The biggest difference between Blade & Soul and other games lies in its combats and quests which are the most important elements for a RPG. For players, the objective of a game should be as clear as possible. However, most games are focused on monster fighting. In Blade & Soul, you can’t expect that everything will be totally new, but definitely, it will allow you to interact more with the environment, though actually it seems not easy to achieve.

Rare Rabbit : Sumatran Rabbit

February 14, 2011 3 comments

The Sumatran Striped Rabbit (Nesolagus netscheri), also known as the Sumatra Short-eared Rabbit or Sumatran Rabbit, is a rabbit found only in forest in the Barisan Mountains in western Sumatra, Indonesia. The Sumatran rabbit is apparently the world’s rarest rabbit. Until recently, there had been only one confirmed sighting since 1916, in 1972. Then in early 1998, a team from Fauna and Flora International photographed one of these rabbits in Mt Kerinci National Park, in Sumatra, by means of phototrapping. That’s not really its name; it doesn’t have one. Meet the rarest rabbit in the world, which has only been seen twice in the last century at least.

Sumatran rabbits have white underbellies and red tails. They measure approximately 13-15 inches (340-400 mm) long with a 0.5 inch (15 mm) tail. They only weigh about 3 pounds (1.5 kg). They are also known to have shorter ears than other rabbits.

Since there hasn’t been any significant field research on these rabbits, nothing really is known about their method of reproduction. Other rabbits in the same family, however, usually reach sexual maturity at around 8 months of age. After a gestational period of 10 days, they give birth to litters of baby rabbits, or kittens. These litters can number up to six kittens at a time. Rabbits usually build nests that are lined with their own fur for the kittens when they are born, and they are blind and helpless at birth, usually not even opening their eyes for 7-10 days. Typical rabbits are able to live to be about nine years old. Unfortunately, it is not known whether the Sumatran Rabbit has these typical breeding characteristics or not.

The Sumatran Rabbit is so rare and well hidden that the local people don’t even have a name for it in their own language and don’t even realize that it exists.

Extraordinary Animal : Long-eared Jerboa

February 14, 2011 1 comment

Long Eared Jerboa

The Long-eared Jerboa (Euchoreutes naso), is a nocturnal mouse-like rodent with a long tail, long hind legs for juming, and exceptionally large ears. It is distinct enough that authorities consider it to be the only member of both its genus, Euchoreutes, and subfamily,Euchoreutinae. It has been reported in China and in ten localities in desert habitats of Trans Altai Govi Desert and the Gobi Desertin Mongolia. A large part of the species is believed to occur in Mongolia within protected areas. Very little is known about the species.

They are presumed to be principally nocturnal, just like their relatives. Specific manners of communicating with each other have not been established, still, it is not farfetched to assume that just like their cousins, they engage in dust bathing, which can be considered a kind of chemical communication. These jerboas’ hearing insinuates that they utilize vibrations to talk to one another. Little owls are considered as one of the most common predators of these jerboas.

They are capable of eating flying insects. The long-eared Jerboa utilizes sounds to pinpoint the location of the prey. After which, they do a very quick leap to catch the flying prey.
