This Interactive Museum Concept Lets You Experience Sound Paintings

Posted by in categories: media & arts, particle physics

In February, we covered a curious setup that allows you to control digital particles in real time by blowing air into a sensor, created by visual artist Steven Mark Kübler. But what if you had a whole museum of such unusual interactive artworks?

This is what Kübler has been wondering as well. He presented a concept of a room filled with sound paintings manipulated with viewers’ actions. You can see him blowing on the sensor to make particles in a tank-like container splash and part like water. The experience was created using Arduino’s controller and the TouchDesigner visual development platform.

Strongest sign of alien found: The search for life beyond earth

Posted by in category: alien life

The search for life beyond Earth is really just getting started, but science has an encouraging early answer: there are plenty of planets in the galaxy, many with similarities to our own. But what we don’t know fills volumes. Observations from the ground and from space have confirmed thousands of planets beyond our solar system.

Functionalization of Polymer Networks for Diverse Applications

Posted by in categories: chemistry, computing, engineering, internet

While silicon has been the go-to material for sensor applications, could polymer be used as a suitable substitute since silicon has always lacked flexibility to be used in specific applications? This is what a recent grant from the National Science Foundation hopes to address, as Dr. Elsa Reichmanis of Lehigh University was recently awarded $550,000 to investigate how polymers could potentially be used as semiconductors for sensor applications, including Internet of Things, healthcare, and environmental applications.

“We’ll be creating the polymers that could be the building blocks of future sensors,” said Dr. Reichmanis, who is an Anderson Chair in Chemical Engineering in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Lehigh University. “The systems we’re looking at have the ability to interact with ions and transport ionic charges, and in the right environment, conduct electronic charges.”

Project Astra demo | Solving math problems

Posted by in categories: mathematics, robotics/AI, space

Watch Project Astra factorise a maths problem and even correct a graph. All shot on a prototype glasses device, in a single take in real time.

Project Astra is a prototype that explores the future of AI assistants. Building on our Gemini models, we’ve developed AI agents that can quickly process multimodal information, reason about the context you’re in, and respond to questions at a conversational pace, making interactions feel much more natural.
