Entertainment Jurassic Park (TF1): Is the Spielberg T-Rex close to scientific reality?
Life found a way with Google’s ‘Jurassic World’ AR models
Who wouldn’t want a dinosaur in their living room? If you search for one of ten species on Google, you can tap “View in 3D” on your mobile device to open up an augmented reality version of the beasts and have them superimposed -- at scale -- in your surroundings. Google partnered with the companies and studios behind Jurassic World to create this new feature. The models are pretty detailed, too -- you can zoom in to see different textures and other physiological characteristics. Google says that the AR dinosaurs are some of the most realistic renderings to date.
TF1 broadcasts the first part of the saga of Steven Spielberg this evening, in which the director has brought to light the most ferocious of dinosaurs ...
A slow predator
If we could see, in the film Jurassic Park, a tyrannosaurus rex engaging in a chase with a vehicle, it would be nothing in reality! A biomechanics specialist has demonstrated, using a 3D simulation, that, given its weight, its skeleton and its muscle mass, the animal could not exceed 20 km per hour.
Jurassic World: Dominion brings back mysterious Jurassic Park character
Campbell Scott will play Lewis Dodgson, the mysterious man who sparks the drama in the first Jurassic Park. Lewis Dodgson, the mysterious character at the beginning of 1993's Jurassic Park, didn't appreciate Dennis Nedry blowing up his spot when he was trying to be incognito. And we're not sure how he'll feel now that news is out about his return to the franchise in Jurassic World: Dominion. Character actor Campbell Scott (House of Cards, Dietland) has joined the cast of the third Jurassic World movie as this familiar figure.
A sociable animal
It was taken for a solitary predator, until a deposit of bones, found in Alberta (Canada), in 1996, reveals the presence of numerous specimens of all ages. According to Canadian professor Philip J. Currie, this discovery proves that the T-Rex lived in a herd and had a social organization.
A silent killer
An examination of his hearing aid makes American paleontologist and anatomist Lawrence Witmer say that the T-Rex was particularly sensitive to sounds of very low frequencies, imperceptible to humans. He therefore emitted infrasound, far removed from the roars that can be attributed to him in the cinema. In Spielberg's film, the terrifying roar of the T-Rex was thus obtained by combining barking, cries of penguins, tigers, alligators and elephants!
