Giant snakes in the Florida Everglades: How scientists are using Burmese pythons as spies

Giant snakes in the Florida Everglades: How scientists are using Burmese pythons as spies The giant invasive snakes quickly put a stranglehold on Florida's wildlife. Now scientists in the Everglades are turning them against one another.

Me: Accidentally blinks twice while driving. How is this possible? In the simplest of terms, the scientists measured the electrooculographic signals generated when eyes make specific movements (up, down, left, right, blink , double blink ) and created a soft biomimetic lens that responds directly to

Scientists from the University of California, San Diego, have created a new robotic soft contact lens that lets you zoom by blinking twice . The lens can be controlled by your eye movements. Eye movements like blinking carry change potential to signal.

It is absolutely the stuff of science fiction: a contact lens that zooms on your command.

But scientists at the University of California San Diego have gone ahead and made it a reality. They've created a contact lens, controlled by eye movements, that can zoom in if you blink twice.

How is this possible? In the simplest of terms, the scientists measured the electrooculographic signals generated when eyes make specific movements (up, down, left, right, blink, double blink) and created a soft biomimetic lens that responded directly to those electric impulses. The lens created was able to change its focal length depending on the signals generated.

Scientists propose dumping 7,400 gigatons of 'artificial snow' on Antarctica A radical, costly geoengineering experiment suggests a new way to stop Antarctica's ice sheets from melting away.

They’ve created a contact lens , controlled by eye movements, that can zoom in if you blink twice . How is this possible? In the simplest of terms, the scientists measured the electrooculographic signals generated when eyes make specific movements (up, down, left, right, blink , double blink ) and

The contact lenses created by the scientists will zoom in whenever a person blinks twice in a short period of time. That could be great for quickly seeing a street sign far away, but could also be an unexpected nightmare if you ended up accidentally double blinking while you ’re behind the wheel of

Therefore the lens could literally zoom in the blink of an eye.

Incredibly the lens works regardless of whether the user can see or not. It's not about the sight, it's about the electricity produced by specific movements.

Why create this? Why the hell not. The researchers believe this innovation could be used in "visual prostheses, adjustable glasses, and remotely operated robotics in the future," but I'm waiting for them to turn up on CSI Miami. Could you imagine the crimes Ice-T could solve wearing these things?

Zoom. Enhance.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro ditches Google Apps while keeping Android. Here’s why that matters .
Promising hardware, questionable software.Instead, you'll surf the web through the Huawei Browser and download apps through the Huawei AppGallery. The AppGallery has around 45,000 apps, according to Huawei, compared to the Google Play Store's estimated 2.7 million. Google typically licenses the latest version of Android, currently Android 10, for phone manufacturers to use. The Mate 30 phones will instead be powered by open-source Android and run EMUI 10, Huawei's user interface that approximates Google's Android 10.
