Amazing way to take incredible pictures

For a close-up shot, when you directly attach your phone's camera to a surface, all you see is a black screen -  unable to take pictures, right ? But you can solve this problem. Just read the following steps - 

An incredible way for Close-up shots - 

1. Get an old laser pointer

2. There will be a focusing lens glued in there

3. Remove it

4. Get hold of the focusing lens (as in image)

5. Attach it to your Phone's camera

6. Take a picture of  the surface (like a coin)

7. Zoom in for close-ups

So Cheap laser pointers, when slapped on your phone’s camera, makes it easy to take macro photographs. There are some great ideas and there's this, isn't it an amazing idea ? Be sure to click on below link for more

Superman wash windows and bring smiles to Children's of Alabama patients

Four awesome guys - Superman, Batman, Spiderman and Captain America made an appearance at Children's of Alabama to wash the windows at the Benjamin Russell 15-story Building and bring smiles to the young patients. These four people work for Squeegee Cleaning Services of Chelsea. They scaled down the hospital building and stopped at every floor to see the kids.

Children - Young Patients - dressed up as their favorite superhero. When superheros were there, all the children crowded around the windows in the waiting areas with their parents and nurses to see them. Children saw them descend on ropes and cables outside. Laughter filled the whole hospital.

To bring attention to Childhood Cancer and Sickle Cell Awareness Month, Children's is "Celebrating Our Heroes" during the week of September 16-20, to bring awareness to the hospital's patients own heroic battles they fight daily.


A 3D printer capable of making food ?

Anjan Contractor, a senior mechanical engineer at Systems and Materials Research Corporation, is currently working on a 3D printer, that can print food. NASA has awarded Anjan a grant of $125,000 for the same purpose. NASA saw that he was able to print chocolate. Food, obviously, won't come out of thin air, the printer needs the materials to make up the food but still. NASA is looking quite interested, this is maybe because they are looking for a way to spice up meal plans for astronauts and other scientists that are thinking of taking on the about-two-year journey to Mars.

3D-printed pizza in space
The ability to print food in space can make travelling longer distances in space more feasible, and that is because the printed food can last much longer than food currently taken into space. These days Anjan is focusing on developing a printer that can print pizza.

Commenting on this topic, Anjan said - Long distance space travel requires 15-plus year of shell life. The way we are looking on it, all the carbs, proteins and macro and micro nutrients are in powder form. We can moisture out, and in that form it will last maybe 30 years. However NASA clearly said that you shouldn't expect 3D printers to be popping up in the home appliances section anytime soon.

Can you believe this potato chips bag is a drawing?

You won't believe this potato chips bag is a drawing.

 It's hard to believe. Italian artist Marcello Barenghi drew this empty potato chips bag. It took Barenghi 4 hours and 36 minutes to draw it. This is what he used for drawing video on YouTube.

If the human eye was a digital camera it would have 576 megapixels

When taking pictures with a digital camera, it's easy to be disappointed in the results. I look at a scene, and see one thing, then I look at the photo, and I see something very different. This isn't surprising, because the human eye is equivalent to a 576-megapixel camera.

The average human retina has five million cone receptors on it. Since the cones are responsible for colour vision, you might suppose that this equates to a five megapixel equivalant for the human eye. 

Our eyes have a hundred million rods that detect monochrome contrast. In good light, you can distinguish two fine lines if they are seperate by at least 0.6 arc-minutes (0.01.Degrees). 

This gives an equivilant pixel size of 0.3 arc-minutes. If you take a conservative 120 degrees as your horizontal field of view and 60 degrees in the vertical plane, this translates to ...

576 megapixels of available image data.

So The human eye has around 576 megapixels, compared to Nokia Lumia 1020 that has (only) an 41-megapixel camera.

Earth captured from millions of miles away beneath the rings of Saturn

Stunning stuff. Just stunning.

How does it feel when you watch documentaries and films that show us all manner of computer generated animations ? What if you could see the "real" versions of those images of the Earth from deep space. Yes NASA, not too long ago, released a photo that gives us a stunning view of our planet from the vantage point of one of the most visually interesting planets in our solar system: Saturn.

The image shows Earth as a tiny spec of light 900 million miles away, Earth - a bright blue dot just under Saturn’s mammoth yellow-brown rings.

Light emitted from Earth to reach the point where this photo was taken would take over an hour and a half, whereas the light from the sun takes an average of 8 minutes and 20 seconds to reach us.

Commenting on the fantastic imagery, Cassini project scientist Linda Spilker said:
"We can't see individual continents or people in this portrait of Earth, but this pale blue dot is a succinct summary of who we were on July 19. Cassini's picture reminds us how tiny our home planet is in the vastness of space, and also testifies to the ingenuity of the citizens of this tiny planet to send a robotic spacecraft so far away from home to study Saturn and take a look-back photo of Earth."
