Electronic Contact Lens

University of Washington

Back in 2009, a contact lens in the works that displayed visual feedback right before your eyes, just like the 'Terminator Style' is being researched. Well, two years and a few months later, Professor Babak Parviz has a working model. He has given the new lens to rabbits, and reports complete success.
The device's display has only one pixel, but serves as a working proof-of-concept for developing more complex information lenses. A useful device would need hundreds of pixels at least, to display a short email or text message.
The lens harvests energy from an external source using an antenna and has an integrated circuit to store the harvested power and transfer it to a transparent sapphire chip with a single blue LED. Unfortunately, while the range of the display was about one meter in free space, that range was reduced to about two centimeters when it was placed on the eye.
Another of the challenges facing the creation of a Terminator-style eye display is that the minimum focal distance of a human eye is only a few centimeters. This means that information displayed on a contact lens would appear blurry. To address this, the researchers used thin Fresnel lenses to magnify the display.

Psychopath Vs Normal People

Not many people can be associated with psychopath eventhough he committed a crime. Psychopath is the term given to someone who is not able to get along with normal people. In many cases, psychopath is the one who committed a very sick crime, usually serial crimes. Annoyed by question what make psychopath different than other criminals, researchers from University of Wisconsin-Madison conducted a study to find the answer to the question.

Interestingly, in their study they've found out that ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC) connection with amygdala is reduced in psychopaths. VmPFC in human is thought to be responsible for emotion regulation such as empathy and guilt while the amygdala is responsible for social response such as fear and anxiety.

The study, is using functional MRI and Diffusion Tensor Image to see the brain of prisoners diagnosed with psychopathy. Using DTI, they found out that the white matter fibers connecting vmPFC and amygdala is reduced and the fMRI showed less activity and connection between these two areas.

Béla Kiss, Hungarian serial killer who killed at least 24 women and stuffed them in metal drum 

Joseph Vacher, known as the French Ripper who mutilated at least 11 people
According to Michael Koenigs, the assistant professor of psychiatry in the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, the two structures which are supposed to regulate the emotional and social response aren't communicating as they should.

Please ensure that you're not a psychopath by checking yourself in nearest hospital. Thank you.

Note that this is only their estimated IQ. The IQ might be different depending on the test given to them. See how they differ here.

I'm not sure how true is this test, but i think its fun to answer the questions. In Malaysia, i don't think IQ test is compulsory. That is why genius like Adiputra is hard to spot. Again, i think it's fun to know how your mind work once a while.

Materializing Light from Vacuum

The idea of empty or nothingness in a vacuum is definitely wrong as in vacuum, particles are fluctuating, appear and disappear continuously. Since their existence is so brief and short, they were refer to as virtual particles.

Vacuum fluctuations may have a relation with "dark energy"

Christopher Wilson, a Chalmers scientist and his co-workers, by using this understanding, have succeeded in creating light from vacuum. The experiment, was an attempt to understand various basic physics concepts such as vacuum fluctuations which may have some connection with dark energy.

In 1970s, physicist Gerald Moore, claim that if virtual photon bounced on a mirror that is moving on the speed of light, the photon may leave its virtual state and exist in real state, which is essentially light. What Wilson and his team did was conducting this experiment in order to observe this phenomenon that is called the dynamic Casimir Effect.
Picture showing the Casimir effect in place.

Göran Johansson, Associate Professor of Theoretical Physics said that in this experiment, photons can jump from virtual state into real state simply because it lack in mass. He also said that by exerting more energy, we can create other particles such as electrons or protons.

Engineering Galaxy

Before anything, you should make sure your download speed is high. And watch the video. 

The entire star wars galaxy was actually built from scratch and for the first time ever, the blueprints of all the magnificent environment behind this fictional movie is released to public. 

More than 200 drawings, 500 photographs of all the blueprints in Star Wars are in this book. Believe it or not, this maybe the only book that tells you how galaxy is engineered.

These pictures are just part of the book. The book, was released on fall 2011 and only 5000 English language copies were printed. With the price of $500, this book may be the only way to save mankind if 2012 doomsday really comes!

Iris: A True Tablet PC for Anyone

Well, the world is certainly growing faster int terms of technology. Even as we speak, companies are developing their products in order to dominate the techno world.

The most famous tablet PC in the world, IPad.
Few years back, the late Steve Jobs introduced Ipad to the whole world which renders almost all companies to try inventing a tablet PC. And among the new inventions and design, a new tablet PC designed by four designers, Liu-Wei, Yao Kai-Chi, Hong Ruei-Hong & Cheng Ya-Fang, will definitely have chance in dominating the tablet PC market.

What they've designed is a transparent tablet PC, in which they called Iris. This tablet PC is using OLED screen and a transparent body, allowing the user to see through the tablet like seeing through a transparent glass. This is how Iris looks like:

Like other tablet PC, this tablet is equipped with speaker, camera and also tiny scanner. By activating the camera, according to gajitz, "this tablet can make a variety of augmented reality applications possible." Well, let's just see what this tiny thing can do that makes IPad sucks.

Well, if you want to have a mobile map that will show you where to go, definitely Iris is better. You can view the real life street with direction of where you're going. This helps especially if you're a tourist or new to some place that you've never been before.

Iris helps you in organizing your place. You can rearrange anything in Iris until you satisfied before you start arranging stuff only to find out that you don't like the arrangement.

With the help of scanner, Iris can translate whatever you're reading into your desired language. You just need to put Iris on a book, the scanner will process the words and boom, the translated text appears!

Also equipped with a sliding bar, Iris can separate the screen to allow you to do multiple works at the same time. Or if you want to share your screen with someone, just put the sliding bar in the middle and you can open different applications at the same time.

Imagine how many useful applications can be associated with Iris for example, VeinViewer. Or maybe at last, we'll have X-Ray scan just by using Iris. Well, I sincerely hope that they've already working on it because I'm gonna need one.

Smart Shirt to Make Hospital Less Scary

Being in a hospital definitely means there's something wrong with you. Especially after seeing all those big, scary machines with wires all over them. But now, thanks to a team at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in Spain, hospital is less scary and people are no longer attached to big wiry thingy and sit on their bed all the time.

Smart Shirt

What this team invented was something called "Smart shirt". This shirt can help doctors in monitoring patient's heart rate, blood pressure and temperature. On top of that, using wireless connection, they can perform echocardiogram (EKG) remotely, eliminating the need for staff to present during the test.

This smart shirt isequipped with GPS, well the actual reason is from it being stolen, but it is also used to track patients because they can wander around easily with this shirt. And if the patient wearing this cloth suffers from heart attack, fall, or any medical problems that require immediate attention, hospital staff can find him/her quickly using GPS. Also equipped with accelerometer, nurses or doctors can monitor if this patient is standing up, sitting, or lying down.

For every medical check up in a hospital, you'll get a free treatment for stress and a pleasing view.

Hopefully this shirt can help to make hospital less scary and more people will want to go to hospital for regular check up. But i definitely want this to be my own personal property!

New Way Of Creating Metamaterial

Well, if you have never encounter what the f*** is metamaterial, then click here

Uli Wiesner from Wesner Lab, has shown how to create metamaterial by using chemistry. The process involves in using what is called block copolymers to assemble 3-D structure in nanoscale features. 

Example of gyroid.

As you all know, polymer is substance that is made up by binding to molecules together to form a new material with new properties. A block copolymers on the other hand is the combination of two or more polymers. Now the two solid polymers will form geometric shapes with interconnected pattern that can be called as gyroid. More complex pattern or shapes can be achieved by using three polymers instead of just two. 

After this process, one of the polymers will be melted or dissolved, creating a hollow area which can be used to mold metal in nanoscale features, usually gold or silver. Now the gyroid consists of polymer and metal. The polymer is then burned, leaving the porous metal structure alone. Through all these process, Wiesner and his team researchers suggest that they can make the metal gyroid so that it can allow light to pass through. 

Maybe next time, the invisibility cloak is invisible through naked eyes, not some cameras or computers.

Using this process, the team said it is possible to create a materials with negative refractive index which is essentially metamaterial. The team now is conducting computer simulations to create the correct pattern for metal gyroid to be able to pass the light and have a negative refractive index in visible and near-infrared range. With this achievement, the world may be able to see cloaking device as has been seen in Star Trek or Harry Potter.
