Deborah Bay has been taking photographs of bullets fired into plexiglass -- not as forensics, but simply as art. The results are quite striking.

Illustrated here: A round from a 9mm Glock, as viewed from the side. It's curled up in a way that makes me imagine a very high-speed snail. The wall ahead of it illustrates physics: as it entered the plexiglass, it compressed the material ahead of it, breaking and reforming the bonds to form a denser, opaque, white layer. This sent a compression wave through the rest of the plexiglass, and after the peak of a wave comes a trough: an area of the glass which was rarefied instead of compressed, stretched out, tearing open tiny bubbles which then got frozen in the plastic as well. The net result: Space Snail.

You can (and should) check out the rest of her collection at http://www.deborahbay.com/bigbang .

When my users tell me that I'm magic, I usually refrain from telling them the actual truth.

Adoptable Storage Devices!

The M Preview released earlier today has a powerful new feature that allows you to "adopt" an external storage device (like an SD card or USB drive), enabling users to move both app code (APKs) and private app data to that device.  When a storage device is adopted, the platform wraps it in a layer of encryption and formats it similar to internal storage.  (In contrast, the original Apps-on-SD feature launched back in Froyo could only move app code, not private app data.)

Also, to help users free up internal storage space, they can choose to migrate their "primary shared storage" (living at /sdcard) to any adopted device.

If you flash the preview build onto a phone/tablet, you can enable the adoption feature for testing with USB OTG devices by using the command described here:

http://developer.android.com/preview/behavior-changes.html#behavior-adoptable-storage

Normally only storage devices in long-term stable locations (like an internal SD card slot inside a phone/tablet, or a USB drive attached to a TV) are supported for adoption.

Along with all of this work, the platform now has much better support for USB OTG storage devices (think USB flash drives).  When a new device is inserted, a notification appears offering to "browse" that device along with simple options to manage/copy contents.

Please kick the tires and file bugs!  :)  #io15 #android

Take a moment to watch this awe-inspiring timelapse video of the the Calbuco volcano in Chile as it erupted last April. Unreal.

Kids, don't try this at home: it's almost certainly not a good idea. But for those of you who are interested in physics, note several important points:

(1) The rocket fires under water: that works because it's a true rocket, carrying both fuel and oxidizer on board and not using air at all. The shape of the nozzle is also important, since water has an amazing ability to absorb heat and thus quench combustion; a caul around the nozzle keeps the water from getting at the ignition point from the sides.

(2) The primary explosion creates a roughly circular set of cracks. Those lead to "big" cracks opening up in the ice, as existing seams and weaknesses get expanded. 

(3) Note that the circular cracks become hexagonal (matching the big cracks) as you move outwards. What's happening is that the inner cracks happen first, and then those start the big cracks, which actually spread faster than the round ones, basically moving at the speed of sound in ice. By the time the last round cracks are forming, they're forming in ice that already has hexagonal cracks in it.

(4) Water is an incompressible fluid, which means that the shock waves are going to hit things under water very, very hard. This is likely to be lethal to anything underwater and nearby, and is how dynamite fishing works. The reasons why that's a terrible idea (and is therefore illegal nearly everywhere) are hopefully obvious.

(5) That said, watching things explode underwater is pretty cool.
