A new project called Prosthetic Photographer involves a very real gadget designed to zap humans into taking better images. The system was created by artist and designer Peter Buczkowski, and it works with both DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Using artificial intelligence, the device constantly scans for 'ideal' scenes and uses mild electric shocks to force/train the photographer to capture them."The
The rise of the internet and byproducts like Kickstarter has facilitated a spread of ideas like never before, some fun, some world-changing and a whole lot that can only be described as weird. The realm of transport is a particularly good place to see oddball creations in action, and while the seven presented here might not be the most effective in getting you where you need to go, they would
We can learn a lot from the naked mole rat. By defying the biological laws of aging, these hardy little rodents can live into their 30s, they're all but immune to cancer, and they can go without oxygen for extended periods by mimicking plants. Researchers at the University of Rochester had a theory on how they manage to live such long lives: perhaps their cells didn't undergo the process of s
Stellar winds thrown out by massive stars behave in surprising ways, according to observations made with the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton observatory. The colliding winds of large stars actually become brighter, and emit more X-rays, as the matter emitted after a stellar event subsides – contrary to expectations. In its search for a reason, the team found answers in a 2014 study, theore
For the last 35 years a team of determined researchers tirelessly worked to get MDMA back into medical legitimacy after it became demonized as a dangerous recreational drug.

A new study from the University ofMaryland School of Medicine has revealed a strange gut-brainconnection between traumatic brain injury and intestinaldamage. Researchers have previously identified an odd connectionbetween TBI and alterations in a person's gastrointestinal tract, butthis is the first study to understand this interaction in detail andto reveal the two-way nature of the process.
The European Southern Observatory (ESO) has confirmed that the object provisionally designated A/2017 U1 is, in fact, an asteroid that came from outside the Solar System. The first-ever detected interstellar traveler, now named "`Oumuamua," turns out to be different from any object seen before and has been roaming between the stars for hundreds of millions of years...Continue Reading First in
Astronomers have discovered a brand new type of object in our solar system: an active binary asteroid. That means the object, named Body 288P, is the first known hybrid of two rare types of asteroid: a binary that's made up of two rocks orbiting each other, and an active asteroid that acts more like a comet, leaving a trail of gas and dust in its wake...Continue Reading Hubble spots a strange
For a few years now, I’ve had in my collection one very strange lens. I bought it primarily for it’s value as a collectible so, up until now, I haven’t really spent much time playing with it.Made in 1975, this manual focus Minolta MC Rokkor-X 40-80mm F2.8 lens is one strange puppy. When it was first introduced, no other zoom lens could top its image quality and it really didn’t have much competit
I’ve worked in a camera store now for about a year and a half, and I’ve been a photographer for about 7 years. I enjoy working in the camera shop, as it’s my one consistent form of income as a photographer.In this camera store we are all directly trained by the camera manufactures, meaning Nikon, Canon, Sony, Fujifilm and all the others come to our store and train us directly. T is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics. We focus on hi-tech reviews, gadgets and geekery but we like almost anything that's awesome, appealing and thought-provoking! er6i9ds5mz
