"To bring the scene to life, we'd need nice-looking water, which wouldn't be convincing if it didn't react to the motion of the characters and surrounding geometry." ...
Bottled water is detrimental to the wellbeing of our planet, but could it be having an impact on our wellbeing, too? A new study investigating the presence of microplastics in bottled water has found that 93 percent of those tested contained fluids were indeed contaminated. So what does that mean for those consuming it? The truth is, nobody really knows...Continue Reading WHO launches health
In drought-stricken Cape Town, we’ve been living with just 50 liters of water per person per day since the beginning of the year. That’s 13.2 gallons. It doesn’t go far when you think about how often you turn on the faucet each day for drinking, cleaning, flushing toilets, showering, washing dishes, and doing laundry.Like many households, we’ve shut off the water supply to the toilet and religiou
Scientists have revealed that a simple genetic tweak to overexpress a single protein in crops could result in the plants needing up to 25 percent less water to produce a regular yield. It's hoped the breakthrough research will lead to a new generation of water-efficient agriculture that helps communities grow more food in areas struggling with drought and climate change...Continue Reading Cro
Travel and nature photographer Dave Morrow has an excellent ongoing video series, "Landscape Photography Journals." We have shared and featured some of the previous episodes in the series and you can see all the videos via the link above. His latest episode is all about long exposure water photography, specifically aimed at photographing rivers and streams but also oceans. When photographing movi
In 2018 we have almost become jaded by levitating objects. You name it and there's probably a levitating iteration on the market: turntables, Bluetooth speakers, cameras, lightbulbs, clocks, and even cloud-shaped lamps. Joining that list is the LeviZen, a water-levitating device that uses acoustic levitation to suspend a droplet in mid-air and simulate the effect of zero gravity...Continue Re
This week's article & video highlights include Bennett Foddy on the pitfalls of perfectionism, a piquant analysis of Where The Water Tastes Like Wine, and lots more besides. ...
Scientists at Australian research centre CSIRO have used graphene to create a simple filtration system that could change the lives of millions in the developing world by making the process of purifying water faster and more effective. Read more
Among graphene's long list of superpowers, filtering water may be one of the most directly beneficial. Now a team of Australian scientists has demonstrated how effective a specially-designed form of graphene can be at purifying water with a pretty challenging test: the filter made water from Sydney Harbour safe to drink in one step...Continue Reading Graphene filter makes even Sydney Harbour is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
