When household objects come to life onscreen (think candlesticks and teacups in Beauty and the Beast, books and brooms in Harry Potter, the cast of practically every Pixar film), it’s the result of careful animation or painstaking CGI. Done well, it’s magic.
But computer-generated imagery doesn’t translate well into live theater, so researchers in Zurich have concocted an enchanting alternative: dancing drones.
For the past five years, a team with ETH Zurich (the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) has studied the possibilities of “athletic quadcopters,” algorithmically-powered drones that can solve problems like a human might. Their work caught the attention of Cirque du Soleil, which you could say also is in the business of solving physical problems. The unlikely collaborators created Sparked, a special-effects-free video starring a repairman and a troupe of dancing lampshades.
Don’t be surprised when they bring a gun to school
that’s not even complicated you literally add 26 and 19 then simplify 2025 over 45 to be 45/1 then multiply 24 and 45 making it 1080 then add 1080 and 47 and unlock the iPad with the passcode 1-1-2-7 god bless
looks like we found ourselves a nerd
looks like we found someone capable of basic math
how is that basic math
this is basic math
Here’s how you know it’s basic math: There are no letters, standard English or Greek, involved.
Only on tumblr could this have gone from commentary of a clever but harsh classroom punishment to a math debate. :P
These are all good but seriously, you should have more than one email address. — At least two, one for business and one for pleasure. - I have five because… sorry, I can’t even remember why. :\
The one tech mistake that isn’t included here but should is having multiple user accounts on your computer.
One “administrator" account (for installing programs, apps, and performing updates) and at least one "user" account with limited permissions for everyday use.
The idea is that, if you use your ‘limited permission’ user account for everyday web surfing and email you will be less likely to inadvertently install malware, spyware, or virus onto your computer.
In other words, if you click on a malicious link while logged on with a limited permission user account, a pop-up will appear asking for a password so it can install whatever it is you’ve ‘accidentally’ clicked. If you’re always logged in as administrator, the malicious software will automatically install without your knowledge.
This is why it’s important to always use a sign in password even if you live alone. It’s not about who has access to your computer in your home, it’s who has access to it from the internet.
Remember… No firewall and/or antivirus is 100% effective.
