Stanford researchers cram 12,616 tiny lenses into a 3D camera
The system works by focusing each lens above four different overlapping sensor arrays, which work in concert to determine depth -- just like your eyes. Unlike similar systems, the Stanford rig is able to use that data to create a depth map without lasers, prisms, or even complex calibration, which will allow the team to shrink the tech down to compact and cellphone camera size.

ScienceDaily () -- Polymer chemists have created a flexible, indestructible material, called metal rubber, that can be heated, frozen, washed or doused with jet fuel, and still retain its electricity-conducting properties. To make metal rubber, chemists and engineers use a process called self-assembly. The material is repeatedly dipped into positively charged and negatively charged solutions. The positive and negative charges bond, forming layers that conduct electricity. Uses of metal rubber include bendy, electrically charged aircraft wings, artificial muscles and wearable computers.

ScienceDaily (2008-03-14) -- From traffic lights to mobile phones, small computers are all around us. Enabling these 'embedded systems' to create wireless communications networks automatically will have profound effects in areas from emergency management to healthcare and traffic control. Networks of mobile sensors and other small electronic devices have huge potential. Applications include emergency management, security, helping vulnerable people to live independently, traffic control, warehouse management, and environmental monitoring.

I am watching my favourite show and the stars right now - Family tie is having a re-union after 20 years. Family tie has to the best show ever! I just love the show and the cast in it, they were so enjoyable to watch and believable as a real family. Of course it is no doubt it was Michael J Fox that made the show the way it was. The other characters were very good as the support cast to carry the story along. Seeing them together after 20 years is breath taking for me. It is for you too?
Wow! wow! wow!

I could not stop the joy! One format for all or may be?
I guest in a corporate world those marketer never learn, do you remember the battle war between VHS and Beta video format? Personally I prefer the beta because I like thing small, but as history has it the VHS won! We are at it again HD DVD Vs Blue Ray -on no! Well the war is over and drum roll and the winner is the consumer! Blue ray has won the battle after Warner Bros exclusively support the Blue Ray format and that sent HD DVD into the trash pile of history.
So what can you with Obsolete HD DVD technology?
engadget has great suggestion:

|African Americans less open to epidural for pain|
"Epidurals are more effective for relieving postoperative pain, and higher levels of pain have been linked to the development of chronic pain," Ochroch explained in a statement.
"Consequently," he said, "if African Americans are either denied or denying themselves epidural for pain relief, then they may be at greater risk for postoperative complications."

This might supprise you if you have been using the Internet and download files send by spammer then chances are your Pc is a zombie for help the criminal or spammer to process the unlawful data practise! Storm worm is becomming more powerful as more and more world Pc are infected; it is etimate this worm or virus is now the fatest supercomputing in the world! What is fightening is that your Pc and my are feeding it to become more powerful each day! This baddy has stolen our Pc processing and memory to do its criminal deeds and making a lot of money along the way! The sophistication of this crime expertise in computer technology is frieghtening and it is hard to remove the virus from your Pc.
"According to New Zealand computer Scientist Peter Gutman, the Storm Worm Botnet can be classified as one of the world’s top 10 super computers. There are between one and ten million computers infected with the Storm worm. Peter Gutman made his calculations based on combining the number of CPUs and the amount of RAM in the infected PCs. With approximately 1-10 million 2.8GHz P4s and 1-10 Petabytes of RAM the Storm Worm Botnet has access to more computing power than the top 10 supercomputers combined."

Most people have heard that chocolate is good for you. But now, the medical journal Lancet is bursting the chocolate bubble.
Just in time for the holidays, a Lancet editorial published today notes that there won’t be a “truffle treatment” for heart disease any time soon. In fact, the editors point out that the very thing that makes chocolate good for you — the antioxidants called flavanols – also make chocolate taste bitter. As a result, confectionery makers often take out the flavanols, stripping the chocolate of its main health-promoting properties. Worse, labels usually don’t tell you whether your chocolate comes with or without flavanols, making it tough to know if a particular piece of chocolate has any health benefits at all.
The company, which stopped making instant cameras for consumers a year ago and for commercial use a year before that, said today that as soon as it had enough instant film manufactured to last it through 2009, it would stop making that, too. Three plants that make large-format instant film will close by the end of the quarter, and two that make consumer film packets will be shut by the end of the year, Bloomberg News reports.
Tracking Your Fingers with the Wiimote
Using an LED array and some reflective tape, you can use the infrared camera in the Wii remote to track objects, like your fingers, in 2D space. This lets you interact with your computer simply by waving your hands in the air similar to the interaction seen in the movie "Minority Report". The Wiimote can track upto 4 points simultaneously. The multipoint grid software is a custom C# DirectX program.

Wow! this is real supprise for me and may be for you as well!
People with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor, according to new research.
A team of scientists has tracked down a genetic mutation that leads to blue eyes. The mutation occurred between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, so before then, there were no blue eyes.
"Originally, we all had brown eyes," said Hans Eiberg from the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Copenhagen.
to find out more: Your blue eyes are really BROWN!
