SIGGRAPH is a marvelous creation, thanks to the genius team from University of Southern California. Although the cost for this project is low, but SIGGRAPH can offers several advantages of displaying 3D objects in 3D. The characteristic for this display is: Autostereoscopic: no need any kinds of viewing glasses Omnidirectional: constantly generates simultaneous views Interactive: can easily update the content at 200Hz According to the spokesperson, this SIGGRPAH works by simply projecting a high-speed video onto a fast speed spinning mirror. While the mirror turning, it will reflects different and high accuracy image to every viewer. With the help of rendering algorithm, it also can rebuild both virtual and real scene, either with correct occlusion, horizontal, vertical perspective and even shading as well! We have to know that the flat surfaces represent only a small part of the real physical world, while we all standing still in a three-dimensional award platform. The team next big project is to create a new generation of display, which will begin to represent the physical world. We are waiting for this day to come. [source]
Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci, the Renaissance age symbolize idol is the first person that draw and sketch out vertical flight machine dated in 1493? Thanks to the drawing of da Vinci, a Japanese flying machine developer, Gennai Yanagisawa had invented a 75-kilogram helicopter. “We named this helicopter â€˜GEN H-4′, which it’s has a set of two rotors that spinning in opposite direction. The maximum speed for GEN H-4 can reach up to 50 kilometers per hour,” Yanagisawa said. “The invention process for this GEN H-4 is not an easy task, as it was taking us years of research and budget to invent this great product,” its developer said. Yanagisawa want to dedicate this honor to da Vinci, the magnificent and legend of Renaissance age. His said a GEN H-4 Flying demonstration show will be held in the birthplace of da Vinci in the near future. This GEN H-4 has sold seven units so far in Japan and US, and the current price is six million yen or 58,250 dollars.
Do you know the estimated population of the cat pet in the world? According to the latest pet population survey, there are over 203,750,000 pet cats in top ten countries, where USA top the chart with 76,430,000 and followed by China with 53,100,000. United Kingdom currently standing in the seventh position with over 7,700,000 pet cats! The number of pet cats expected to be grown in an exponential rate throughout the time. The experts also stated that the pet cats market potential would also increase double or triple in the near future as well. Having cats as our pets or companions is a great daily challenge, as we need to observe and communicate with the cats.

As Oil prices going up and seems this is going to keep that way, more and more attentions is given to alternative energy sources. Probably solar energy is most attractive due to its nature. Don’t go in to discussions about what alternative energy is the best – all of them are good as long as they are effective. Researchers in University of California, San Diego have been working on “hairy” solar cells. They discovered that growing nano-wires on photocells boost solar cell efficiency. Nanowires help to conduct electrons from collections surface to electrode. “If nanowires are going to be used massively in photovoltaic devices, then the growth mechanism of nanowires on arbitrary metallic surfaces is an issue of great importance,” said Paul Yu, a professor at UC San Diego, and a member of the project team which published the nanowire research. “We contributed one approach to growing nanowires directly on metal.”
