Mechanical fireflies could help create a new kind of 3-D display, say researchers at MIT.
The project, called Flyfire, a project initiated by the SENSEable City Laboratory in collaboration with ARES Lab aims to transform any ordinary space into a highly immersive and interactive display environment. Each helicopter contains small LEDs, and acts as a smart pixel, the motion of the pixels is adaptable in real time. The Flyfire canvas can transform itself from one shape to another or morph a two-dimensional photographic image into an articulated shape.
“Each of the helicopters then acts as what we call a smart pixel,” E Roon Kang, the MIT research fellow who is leading the project, told Wired.com. “By controlling their movement, we can have the pixels flying through the air.”

All my single ladies....put your hands up" You know the song - everyone knows the song whether they want to or not! Women around the world threw up their left hand in triumph requesting a ring on that finger. It is no secret that black women are the least married group in the world so I more than applaud this trend - Bravo to Mrs. Knowles-Carter. But here is the real question, Why should he put a ring on it?
I can hear the brakes screeching now!! It is an absolutely valid question to ask. Now there is no shortage on reasons why black women are not married, some valid but some highly speculative. So rather than beat that same old horse let's have some fun with a little questionnaire that will help measure some marriage ready traits.
A. Storm out of the house and call your girlfriend and/or mother
B. Throw things out of the window, kick him out and then spend the night at his place that evening.
C. Go to your corner, cool down, come back and discuss the problem
When you're at your most vulnerable state the first person you turn to for support is:
A. Your girlfriend
B. Your mother
C. Your boyfriend
Do you consider your womanly charm to be:
A. A curse from God that set the women's movement back a few years.
B. Something you only use to get free phone upgrades, get out of a parking ticket, etc.
C. The perfect way to help mold your man to meeting your needs
When your boyfriend brings up something he thinks you can work on do you:
A. Suffer from the princess syndrome and believe he should love you just the way you are
B. Listen to appease him and continue your merry way
C. Ask questions and truly consider if there is room for improvement
When your boyfriend comes home from a long days work do you:
A. Stay on the phone with your girlfriend and/or mother for another 3-5 hours chatting
B. Go take a nap
C. Become attentive to his needs
If you chose mostly A's: You can continue checking the single box.
If you chose mostly B's: You may get married but in a few years you'll be checking the divorcee box
If you chose mostly C's: You will most likely get married and maintain a healthy marriage with continued growth.
And seriously if you failed these easy questions you should really consider putting your hands down and working on yours
Lol, pure entertainment, Juelz don;t look to happy though!!!!!!!!!!
To promote the launch of Gap’s new loyalty program, Sprize, the GAP store on Robson Street in Vancouver, Canada was literally flipped upside down.
The transformation was finished in only twelve hours, after 32 mannequins, four display tables, hundreds of t-shirts, one hot dog cart, and three cars were flipped to create the illusion.
This is so amazing!!!!!!!!
Love the video.................... I'm personally a big Ricky Ross fan myself, tell me what you guys think?
