[Throwing a torch in Virtual Reality] 
This seems like a bigger achievement than it looks : Two guys basically blindfolded, using a digital representation as their basis of motor functions like throwing/catching. Pretty wicked.

The speed of the calculations occuring here is absolutely mind-blowing.
Person A starts to move arm - computer A sends information displaying arm movements and torch location. computer B receives the information and displays it for Person B. All fast enough for Person B to actually physically catch the torch. The simulated times and distances and RL times and distances have to be within an extremely low margin to successfully catch a thrown object.

I love to give simple explanations of complex ideas, and I love finding good explanations by other people, too. Here, physicist Brian Skinner has written a very simple explanation of the core ideas of quantum field theory. QFT is the thing that combines special relativity with quantum mechanics, and is the basis of particle physics, the Standard Model, and almost all of our best understandings of how the universe works -- so it's rather impressive that he managed to explain its core ideas using mattresses.
First of all, don’t panic. I’m going to try in this post to introduce you to quantum field theory, which is probably the deepest and most intimidating set of ideas in graduate-level theoretical phy...

'Multifab' 3D-prints a record 10 materials at once, no assembly required (w/ Video)
3D printing is great, assuming that all you need to do is print one material for one purpose, and that you're okay with it taking a few tries. But the technology is still far behind where it could be in reliably producing a variety of useful objects, with no assembly required, at a cost that doesn't make you want to poke your eyes out with a 3D-printed fork.

Autisme avant la lettre
Ressenya d'un llibre sobre la història de l'autisme, abans que n'existís la definició..
Review of a book about the history of autism,  before its definition even existed.
 ·  Translate
In his book NeuroTribes, Steve Silberman traces the evolving definition of autism—and argues for a more nuanced, more empathetic understanding of the condition.

Autisme i creativitat.
 
Shouldn't be surprising..

However.. "Jolanta Lasota, chief executive of the charity Ambitious about Autism, said lack of creativity is one of many autism myths. She welcomed the study for suggesting that seeing the world in a different way can be a positive trait."

As permanent "outsiders", we pretty much always see things from a different perspective, often unique, or at least surprising to those around us.  One problem is, that in most typical situations in life, this is not what is expected or desired.  This creates discomfort or irritability in the 'normal' crowd (called #neurotypical ), to which we are very sensitive to.

She said: “There are many misconceptions and myths about autism, the biggest one including being antisocial and having a lack of empathy."

Even when we are up-front about being autistic, the prejudice behavior often does not stop.  For example, I was once called a liar for saying that I did not have a lack of empathy, but rather, an excess of it.  In that case, it was not the person's fault, it was that of the scientific community --up until recent years, and the advancements of genetics and neuroscience, only people suffering from the most debilitating forms of autism were studied.  (being an ass was his fault, but not being misinformed)

It's nice to see more coming out about the positive side of this genetic expression.

Story
Introduction
Informàtic de formació, m'hi vaig dedicar durant gairebé 10 anys. Ara estic en una etapa més centrat en el món dels jocs. Per exemple:
  • He creat jocs (alguns han guanyat premis, un ha estat publicat)
  • He fet conferències, xerrades, exposicions... sobre jocs
  • Faig tallers de jocs variats (aualé, toghızqumalaq, jocs de cordills, jocs tradicionals...)
  • He estat voltant per pobles ensenyant jocs motors tradicionals d'arreu del món
  • Participo en campionats, bàsicament d'aualé i toghızqumalaq (vaig ser al primer campionat del món, al Qazaqstan)
I bé, un altre dia explicaré més coses.
Bragging rights
He aparegut a diaris d'Antigua & Barbuda, Suïssa i el Qazaqstan :-)

No he visitat el museu, només la cafeteria. Una xocolata desfeta boníssima, igual que els melindros i els croissants. Un pèl car, això sí.
