Comments Off on This giant inflatable dome is made of hundreds of tiny pinhole cameras

Artists often try to get viewers to appreciate different perspectives, but Rhode Island-based design collective Pneuhaus is taking the task literally. They’ve created a giant inflatable “Camera Compound” made of 109 tiny pinhole cameras. The innovative camera obscura – which takes the form of a 20-foot geodesic dome – invites guests to wander inside to get a different perspective on the world they live in. Each hexagonal piece of the dome structure contains a tiny pinhole, which, like a camera obscura , projects an inverted image onto the translucent interior. In this case, the pinholes were covered with a single magnifying glass to focus the incoming light in a way that produces a crisper image than most camera obscuras. The installation’s flexible opaque fabric lets visitors create their own images by distorting the images as they wish.

In 2015, they unveiled an inflatable RGBubble pavilion on the Brown University campus and later, they created a crazy Bubble Dome made up of hundreds of TPU balls . + Pneuhaus Via Core 77 Images via Pneuhaus

Comments Off on Scientists Develop an Electronic Nose That Can Detect Dangerous Airborne Chemicals

The human nose is an exquisitely sensitive organ, capable of recognizing over 10,000 different smells.  Yet, when toxins are in the air, it may be best to leave the sniffing to a device that can’t suffer damage from inhalation.  Scientists from the Nano Engineered Applications, Inc ., an Innovation Economy Corporation company, have developed a prototype “electronic nose” that can detect up to eight pollutants harmful to humans.

Comments Off on UK Scientists Suggest ‘Cloud Brightening’ Could Reduce the Severity of Hurricanes

As Hurricane Isaac approaches the Caribbean and is set to continue into the Gulf of Mexico, a team of British scientists from the University of Leeds has proposed that Marine Cloud Brightening (MCB) could—in theory—be used to decrease sea surface temperatures where hurricanes form. The report, published in Atmospheric Science Letters , suggests that this technique could reduce hurricane intensity by one category.
