Where is magenta?

A beam of white light is made up of all the colours in the spectrum. The range extends from red through to violet, with orange, yellow, green and blue in between. But there is one colour that is notable by its absence [...]. Pink (or magenta, to use its official name) simply isn’t there. But if pink isn’t in the light spectrum, how come we can see it?

[Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ]

Nanofactories (video)

Animatie over machines - zoiets als desktop printers - die werken op basis van nano-robots

A nanofactory is a proposed system in which nanomachines (resembling molecular assemblers, or industrial robot arms) would combine reactive molecules via mechanosynthesis to build larger atomically precise parts. These, in turn, would be assembled by positioning mechanisms of assorted sizes to build macroscopic (visible) but still atomically-precise products.

The dodecahedron (12 sided) shaped object you see actually consists of 12 speakers which allow for non-directional 360 degree sound field. Which also means the new speakers can be positioned anywhere in a very flexible matter. Now with sound radiating equally in each direction, the speakers become invisible, only the sound emanating from them remains.

TV is dying

De TV heeft z'n langste tijd gehad, aldus Vint Cerf, 'Vice President & Chief Internet Evangelist' van de Google Management Group.

Vint Cerf, who helped to build the internet while working as a researcher in America, said that television was approaching its "iPod moment"

In the same way that people now download their favourite music onto their iPod, he said that viewers would soon be downloading most of their favourite programmes onto their computers.

"85 per cent of all video we watch is pre-recorded, so you can set your system to download it all the time," said Mr Cerf, who is now the vice-president of the Google, the world's largest search engine.

Slimmer met muziek

Recent research in neuroscience suggests that learning to play music positively influences the brain. Scientists hope that ongoing studies will lead to:
  • A greater understanding of how the brain can remodel itself.

  • Fresh ways to use music to help boost learning.

  • New ideas on how to use music to treat brain illness.

If bigger brain parts mean a bigger intellect, musicians may have a leg up on others. Brain imaging research shows that several brain areas are larger in adult musicians than in nonmusicians. [...]

Best Vista Antispyware

Volgens een recente test van PC World zijn dit de beste anti-spyware programma's voor Vista:

PC Tools' Spyware Doctor 5.0 outperformed its Vista competitors. Grisoft's AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 and Webroot's Spy Sweeper 5.5 finished some distance behind. Neither Spybot Search & Destroy nor Windows Defender adequately protects against today's threats. And on Windows XP, Lavasoft Ad-Aware, in several performance areas, did not impress us.
