"London: Renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has launched the most powerful shared-memory supercomputer in Europe.

Hawking anticipates that the COSMOS supercomputer, manufactured by SGI and the first system of its kind, will open up new windows on the universe, a university release said.

During the launch, which is part of the Numerical Cosmology 2012 workshop at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge, Hawking said, "We have made spectacular advances in cosmology and particle physics recently.""

Three minutes on greed and possibility. Did you see the end coming?

Now I'm really surprised that nobody posted this on G+ , but this is totally INSANE! As we all know that Kinect had been hacked and tweaked in the Adafruit challenge way back, so this is the next step in utilizing the awesome depth sensor!

I wonder what kind of end product we'll get from this. Perhaps it'll start off with Modern Warfare : VR

Perspective is everything: Making the impossible possible

Kokichi Sugihara, from the Meiji Institute for Advanced Study of Mathematical Sciences in Japan, won the 2010 Best Illusion of the Year Contest for his Impossible motion: magnet-like slopes -- an illusion in which balls seem to roll upward, in homage to Escher. This is actually only one of a whole series of illusions that Sugihara has created, building real-world impossible objects, which are really possible objects presented from specific visual perspectives that make the impossible appear possible. The video below reveals the secrets of these illusions, and may inspire you to make your own at home (Sugihara provided detailed instructions to those of us at the 2010 contest on how to build our own impossible objects). In the video, Sugihara also talks about how one could use illusions to improve our everyday lives, for example in highlighting certain perceptual cues for drivers.

The trick Sugihara uses is really the same basic idea that dates back to at least the 15th century, when Leonardo da Vinci created the first documented example of art using perspective anamorphis, enabling people to see the image in its intended form when viewed from just the right position. A more modern take on this approach is seen in the amazing artwork of George Rouse, who paints spaces to create images that seem to float in midair when viewed from just the right place: http://goo.gl/A5Gpr
