Full Body Scan

A hi-tech scanner has been developed which takes images in less time than it takes the human heart to beat.

The Somatom Definition machine contains two X-ray scanners so full body images can be taken twice as fast.

Manufacturer Siemens said the scanner, which will be available in the UK next autumn, is ideal for diagnosing heart problems because of its speed.

Scanning experts said such technology might reduce the need for more invasive diagnostic techniques.

CT (computed tomography) scans use special x-ray equipment to obtain image data from different angles around the body.

Storage on your Camcorder

Now this is something I have been wondering about, ever since I saw an article about software that would enable you to store 200MB of data on a VHS tape, using only audio output.

This is WAAAAAYYY cooler...

Muppet Trivia

"Muppet Wiki is a collaborative project to create an encyclopedia for everything related to Jim Henson and the Muppets. The Wiki format allows anyone to create or edit any article, so we can all work together to create a comprehensive database for Muppet fans."

Paris 360

This has to be one of the best Panoramas I've seen.

Was Mona Lisa really happy?

According to the University of Amsterdam:

"We now know: Mona Lisa was 83 per cent happy, nine per cent disgusted, six per cent fearful and two per cent angry.
That's the conclusion of a University of Amsterdam computer that applied "emotion-recognition software" to Leonardo da Vinci's work, Britain's New Scientist reports in Saturday's issue.

The algorithm, developed in conjunction with the University of Illinois, tries to assess the human mood by examining key features such as the curvature of the lips and crinkles around the eyes, then makes a score with respect to six basic emotions."

Jeez... now we know...

The power of the mind... helped by placebos...

This is an interesting read into a study reported on by the L.A. Times, about the use, and effects of placebos.

Seriously.... I think that 85% of minor to medium complaints of "patients" in first world countries could be treated by placebos....

But that's just me.

Miniature UAV's

UAV's (Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles) are all the rage now. You have probably heard of the Predator which has been used in the Iraq war.
It's pretty small, huh?

Not any more...

Imagine a vehicle that can float around in a controlled manner, has an onboard Intel CPU, and can transmit video and sound up to 2000 meters away. Ok... now imagine it being the size of a dandelion seed... roughly 1000 micrometres.

Want something smaller?

Imagine a microphone that is so small, it can be implanted into a mosquitoe's proboscis, and when it bites a host, the microphone is mbedded into it. It uses the bodie's natural electrical impulses to transmit sound...

Pretty creepy...

And considering these details were recently released to the public, you can expect that the classified devices are roughly 25 times smaller...

For a full review of these and other UAV's visit this SITE

Unisol a reality?

I'm sure you guys have watched the movie "Universal Soldier" (Unisol), with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren. Basicaly about creating super-soldiers.
