Scientists working on NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter shared a 3-D flyover video captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft. Those are among the items revealed during the European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna, Austria, on Wednesday, April 11. The data had been collected by Juno mission scientists of Jovian InfraRed Auroral Mapper (JIRAM). Imaging in the infrared part of the spectrum, JIRAM captures light emerging from deep inside Jupiter equally well, night or day. The instrument probes the weather layer down to 30 to 45 miles (50 to 70 kilometers) below Jupiter’s cloud tops.
For the first time ever scientists have created three-dimensional (3D) numerical model of melting snowflakes in the atmosphere. The discovery has developed by Jussi Leinonen: a scientist of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The Snowflake helps scientists to better understand how the snow can melt, and provides them to identify the signature in radar signals of heavier, wetter snow: the kind that breaks power lines and tree limbs – and could be a step toward improving predictions of this hazard.
Scientists created the most exact three-dimensional map of brain on which it is possible to make out separate neurons and their shoots. The map will help psychiatrists and other experts investigating the nature of mental disorders. The digital three-dimensional map of brain created on the basis of a brain of died woman. The map allows in 20 micrometers studying internal communications of neurons. By the words of founders of BigBrain from Germany and Canada, the map traced by 50 times more detail, than result of the previous attempt to create the similar map. The technique of scanning developed by leading German experts in this area, assumes cross division of a brain into a large number of layers the microtome. The microtome is the special tool intended for these purposes, and processing of cuts by the special solution, allowing to make cells of a brain more visible for computer devices. After that cuts are illuminated with help of the scanner, and the special computer algorithm unites these pictures in a whole.
The Internet giant Amazon develops the touch screen smartphone with the unusual interface using the three-dimensional display and technology of tracking eyes of the user. Images formed by the display have to soar over a display surface due to effect of the hologram. HTC and LG already made attempts to put on the market smartphones with the three-dimensional display, but they didn’t enjoy wide popularity because of need of creation of specific photos and video movies. The LG and Samsung companies in the latest smartphones also realized technology of tracking eyes of the user. It allows delivering to video on a pause in case the owner of the smartphone doesn’t look at the screen at present.
Designer Adam Frank created a mirror with the 3D image of floating clouds. To look itself in a mirror became already a few banal occupation. Usual reflection even if faultless, any more doesn’t please as earlier. Designer Adam Frank will present to you something new. During the BKLYN Designs 2013 exhibition, the designer presented a mirror of LUCID Mirror, which drew public special attention with the singularity. In appearance this is simple also a usual mirror, ideally smooth and equal, which accurately displays the objects. The mirror has an image of floating clouds in a 3D format. When you will look on the reflection in such mirror, you will see yourselves in soaring clouds and since the morning you will have a positive spirit for all day.
The manufacturing company of the software of BotObjects presented to the world the first full-color desktop the 3D printer. The BotObjects company created not simply the first the 3D ProDesk3D printer with full of color, but thanks to the anodized aluminum case, undoubtedly, it is one of the most beautiful. The purpose of the company was to think of how full of color 3D printers can look in 5 years to draw a line between ProDesk3D and its “contemporaries”. For the color printing, it uses system of the cartridges filled with polystyrene latex, capable to mix five basic flowers. As botObjects describes itself as the company according to the software and understands all problems connected with its installation, ProDesk3D works “directly from a box”: simply connect it to a network, it will be established automatically.
Users of Kickstarter was able to invest a new project – 3D printing pen 3Doodler, which will allow you to create three dimensional objects in the air. Within hours, the project was able to collect 530.000 $, though initially needed was 30.000 $,according to manufacturer the pen on sale will appear in the autumn of this year, and its cost will be 75 $. The creators have promised that everyone who transferred 75 $ or more will be presented to 3d printing pen. Create three-dimensional figures using this pen is quite simple: the user holding the pen in his hand, “paints” it in space, creating a three-dimensional figures. The device weighs about 200 grams,it is depending by the electricity. 3Doodler visually resembles gun filled with hot glue. Plastic pen tucked ABS / PLA, then its heating up to 270 degrees, after which liquid plastic goes through the top of a metal tip. At this stage, the pen is powered by electricity and depends on the socket, but then the developers promise to build a device that will run on batteries.
Using a technique known as two-photon lithography, Austrian researchers have developed a high-precision 3D printer capable of producing nanometer sized objects in the shape of race cars, cathedrals, and bridges in a matter of minutes. The high-precision 3D printer at TU Vienna is purportedly orders of magnitude faster than similar devices, and opens up new areas of applications, such as in medicine.The super fast nano-printer uses a liquid resin, which is hardened at precisely the correct spots by a focused laser beam.
Scientists in the United States have made a further step towards creating an “invisibility cloak” by masking a large, free-standing object in three dimensions. The lab work is the latest advance in a scientific frontier that uses novel materials to manipulate light, a trick that is of huge interest to the military in particular. Reporting in the New Journal of Physics, researchers at the University of Texas in Austin cloaked a 7.2-inch cylindrical tube from light in the microwave part of the energy spectrum.This newest cloak makes 3D objects invisible without using reflective surfaces or specialized microwave chambers.
