S.E.L.F.I.E, a mirror takes your selfies and shares it to twitter


s.e.l.f.i.e mirror

 

Now-a-days, “Selfie” is a most common and widely used term for youngsters. Selfie is a self-portrait picture taken with a camera held at arm or in front of a mirror. People often taking selfies for having fun and sharing with social networking media. Recently, Ellen DeGeneres’s Oscar selfie was an epic moment in Oscar’s night, which have got 3 million retweets in the twitter. This might be a cause for inventing this magic smart selfie mirror.

S.E.L.F.I.E mirror is actually called as “Self Enhancing Live Feed Image Engine.” This mirror acts as a two-way mirror that can take your selfie and shares it with social media. The iStrategy Labs was developed this smart mirror, which consists of a mini Mac behind the mirror, a webcam and some colorful LED lights.

 

selfie mirror worldleaks

 

The webcam behind the mirror automatically detects the face of the person standing in front of the mirror with the help of the facial recognition software installed on the Mac. The Colorful LED light is used for indicating the process of taking photos. After the image was taken, it will automatically share it to twitter along with your logo with the help of the software. But still it’s a prototype of iStrategy Labs. If you want to own one for yourself, you can contact with the team of iStrategy Labs.

Bermuda touchdown and the Sargasso Sea


In truth, no single answer exists. Rather it is a collection of various forces at work, much like the many aspects of life. Humans have a dynamic way of shifting through the peaks and troughs of times inevitable progression. I was reminded of this when we touched down on the small island of Bermuda.

img_8502

The air felt rich and playful, hanging heavy with suspense for its next move. The cool breeze swept the length of the 22 mile island in a matter of minutes, and moments later, the rustled trees fell hushed. An island in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, it exists not as a typical Caribbean island. The Sargasso Sea moves around Bermuda and expands endlessly in all directions. As a territory of the United Kingdom, Bermuda has approx 138 islands that are volcanic in origin with limestone caps, though most are extremely tiny and uninhabited. The mainland is comprised of 7 larger islands, each linked by bridges. As you drive the narrow and windy streets, your eyes steadily search for stretches through the lush hills that open long enough to glimpse the shimmering shores. The ocean water shines in light green and aqua hues. The calmness of the people emanates through the crowded villages as their smiles seem to extend beyond their faces. There is a kindness and helpfulness about the people that continues to surprise me. Alas, we are finally standing on solid ground to begin filming for Phase III: Plastic Pollution and the Sargasso Sea.

However underneath Bermuda’s beautiful color pallet and vibrant population lies a dark secret. Washed up on every shore is the result of human production, consumption, and the plastic permanence of everyday items from across the globe. This project will focus on the topic of marine debris and the uniqueness of the Sargasso Sea.  Named after the rafts of floating golden Sargassum algae, the Sargasso Sea is an enormous expanse of slowly rotating water encircled by the ocean currents of the subtropical North Atlantic Ocean. It exists as an incredible ecological habitat for a diversity of species as the Sargassum mats prove a place to rest, feed and breed. Sargassum is the world’s only completely floating and free-living large algae. There are over 150 invertebrate species that live within the Sargassum, and many of them have evolved to blend in seamlessly with the bright golden algae which they depend upon.

The unique positioning of the Sargasso Sea includes the North Atlantic Trash Gyre. The gyres current has a whirlpool effect, collecting large amounts of marine debris over time. Everyday, an estimated 60 tons of plastic waste ends up in our oceans, mostly from land based activities. Over the next few months, we will investigate the effects of marine debris on this diverse ecosystem, capturing footage of humpback whales, pelagic fish, Sargassum, and trash laden beaches. Stay tuned as we jump into the deep blue Sargasso Sea and North Atlantic Trash Gyre.

Obama: we’re building Iron Man (and here’s how)


 US building ironman

If you’ll remember back in October of 2013 there was a story about how a “real Iron Man” was being built by the US Army. This week, US President Barack Obama spoke up on the White House’s next initiative for manufacturing innovation in the United States. In this speech, he suggested that the reason the press was gathered was that the United States government was building Iron Man – it was a joke, of course.

In reality the event was to introduce two new public-private manufacturing innovation institutes. These institutes would be in Chicago and Detroit, while the overarching initiative would also be putting on a competition for the first of four additional institutes “that will put America at the forefront of 21st century manufacturing.”

You can see the full transcript of Obama’s remarks on these new Manufacturing Innovation Institutes right now at The White House dot gov.

Meanwhile – the United States government is, actually – really – creating Iron Man. It’s not a Marvel Comics situation, exactly, but it may as well be called something similar. This is the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) project TALOS: Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit.

From SOF TALOS we’re also able to see a July of 2013 demonstration of a few technologies having to do with TALOS. This is part of a “Technologies for Use by Special Operations Forces” initiative to bring in top technology partners to work on TALOS-based innovations.

You can see the call-to-action at Federal Business Opportunities homepage – legitimate as can be with its low-level graphic design, of course.

According to Armed with Science, Michel Fieldson, TALOS lead, SOCOM, spoke up on the project in November of 2013, suggesting the following:

“We sometimes refer to it as the Iron Man suit, frankly to attract the attention, imagination and excitement of industry and academia.

We’re hoping to take products we’re developing in several technology areas and integrating them into a consolidated suit to provide more protection for SOC operator.” – Michel Fieldson, TALOS lead, SOCOM

Fieldson is also noted as saying that they’re hoping to have a full contract in place by next fall. That’s nearer the end of 2014, while Fieldson suggests that they’d like to have the first suits “ready for full field testing in about four years.”

Study Finds OREO Cookies As Addictive As Cocaine


study-finds-oreos-cookies-as-addictive-as-cocaine-worldleaks

 

STORY:

A study finds Oreo cookies as addictive as Cocaine.

HOAX OR FACT:

Partially fact.

ANALYSIS:

Messages spreading online and even some news reports talk about a scientific study which seems to have found out that Oreo cookies are as addictive as Cocaine.

Oreo is a popular cookie brand that not only kids, but also adults love to eat. The present message talking about a scientific study comes as a shocker, suggesting that the reason why Oreos have been popular is because it is addictive – as addictive as Cocaine. Following the publication of this study in Connecticut College website, several news reports broke out warning people about the addictiveness of Oreos, some even saying they are as addictive as drugs.

ABOUT THE STUDY

A group of Connecticut College students and Joseph Schroeder, a professor of psychology studied the potential addictiveness of Oreo Cookies – in an undergraduate student research project.

The student researchers put rats in a maze with two sides. On one side, the rats were rewarded for traversing the maze with Oreos, while the other side had rice cakes. The students measured how long the rats spent on either side of the maze. No surprise, the Oreos were more popular than the rice cakes. The students then repeated the experiment, but this time they put a shot of morphine or cocaine on one side, and a shot of saline on the other side. Their observations revealed that rats given the choice between Oreos and rice cakes spent as much time on Oreos as the rats given the choice between cocaine and saline did on the cocaine. They found that eating Oreos activated more neurons in the brain’s “pleasure center” than exposure to drugs of abuse. So they thought that the “America’s favorite cookie” is just as addictive as cocaine – at least for lab rats.

VALIDITY OF STUDY

The aforementioned study on Oreo cookies does not conclude that they were as addictive as Cocaine. As mentioned in the report of their undergraduate study, the results are preliminary and are subject to further scientific review. Edythe London, a UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) researcher who uses brain imaging to study the neural basis of drug cravings, responded to this study saying:

“The study performed cannot determine whether Oreos are as addictive as cocaine. That question is best addressed in a comparison of how hard a rat will work for Oreos versus cocaine — how many times a rat will press a lever to get one or the other. More is needed to say that Oreos are as addictive as cocaine or addictive at all.”

So it is evident that the rat study does not prove that Oreos are as addictive as Cocaine or any other drugs. Some reports also said Oreos contained Cocaine, which again, is not a fact. Oreo cookies, like many other foods, are already known to have a ‘pleasurable’ effect on human brain. The question whether foods can be addictive is not resolved yet. However, the study, which was basically meant to examine the potential addictiveness of high-fat/high-sugar foods, suggests the dangers of over consumption of those easily accessible and affordable foods.

Mozilla Comes Up With A New Smartphone That Costs Only 25$ But Has A Huge Touchscreen


mozilla_smartphone

We all know Mozilla as the developer of the famous Firefox browser, but the company is expanding itself to new horizons. The company has coupled with a low-cost Chinese chip manufacturer Spreadtrum to create a new, cheaper smartphone for the masses.

mozilla_smartphone worldleaks

The phone may not be as capable as it’s high-end counterparts, but it will support apps and mobile Internet. This phone will appeal to users who are looking for a “cheap” feature phone that can do all the basics. This phone will act as a bridge between “plain” cell phones and smartphones. Mozilla’s main target market is developing countries where smartphones are seen as an excessive luxury. The phone will be available this year for a price of $25 and is currently known as the SC6821. This budget smartphone will feature a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen, built-in WiFi, Bluetooth, as well as FM and camera functions. Details of the processor are scarce, but the Firefox OS is said to require only 128 MB of RAM which means, we can expect a Spreadtrum chipset with medium processing power.

mozilla_smartphone-with firefox os

With the Mobile World Congress underway, the mobile industry is seeing great changes and this new step taken by Mozilla is certainly a game changer. Though the new phone will have to compete against more well-established brands, Mozilla believes that it will be able to capture its target market with great ease. They believe that their phone will “redefine” the entry-level phone market. This phone will be a savior for those consumers in developed countries as well, who have to buy expensive contracts to reap the benefits of a smartphone.

mozilla_smartphone-with firefox os worldleaks

The phone will run Mozilla’s own operating system, which could act as a negative point since there are not much apps for this OS . However, Mozilla seems confident and has even released high-end phones from Huawei and ZTE that run Mozilla OS . With a retail price of $25 and availability in all developing and developed countries, the new Mozilla OS is bound to make a place for itself in the ever-growing market.

10 Crazy Museums With Bizarre Exhibit Displays


It’s fun to visit museums and discover a bit of history or look at art but these exhibit displays are so weird I can’t imagine anyone wanting to visit these museums. Would you?

1. Museum of the Penis

Museum of the Penis

The Icelandic Phallological Museum in Iceland is a museum devoted to phallology. As of July 2006, the museum houses 245 specimens displayed like hunting trophies, embalmed in formaldehyde, or dried in display cases.

The museum attempts to collect penis specimens from every mammal in Iceland, including several species that are endangered or currently extinct in Icelandic waters. Sigurður Hjartarson, a former teacher, is the founder and director of the museum.

The museum also exhibits a few specimens from mammals not living in Iceland, as well as folkloric specimens (alleged elves, trolls, sea monsters, etc.) and penis-themed art.

2. Toilet Museum

Toilet Museum

The American Sanitary Plumbing Museum is the butt of a lot of jokes. It’s also a shrine to the history of plumbing. The joke is that in most museums you generally have to search for a toilet. Here, toilets abound, some of them dating back to the early nineteenth century. You’ll see ornate porcelain toilets, chain-pull toilets with high wooden tanks, and an “earth cabinet” that collected the user’s waste in lime instead of water. There’s even toilet paper from the 1800′s, referred to back then as “boudoir paper.”

The museum was founded by Worcester plumbing equipment distributor Charles Manoog in 1979. Manoog was getting ready to retire and says he wanted to give something back to the profession. Today, his son Russ Manoog runs the distribution business. Down the street, in a refurbished warehouse, Russ’s wife, B.J. Manoog curates the only known plumbing museum in the world.

3. New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum

New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum

The primary purpose of this museum is to represent the traditional practices of the Voodoo religion in New Orleans. The New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum brings together ancient and modern day Voodoo practices. While you are visiting the Museum, you may wish to have one of our practitioners prepare a special Gris-Gris bag just for you or someone you may know. The Museum also houses artifacts of the Great Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau.

4. Museum of Menstruation

Museum of Menstruation

The Museum, located in a suburb of Washington, D.C., is devoted to the rituals and culture of menstruation. Visitors can see exhibits tracing the history of pads, tampons, special menstrual underwear, and more. As the Museum’s brochure explains, “A particular weight is put on the history and philosophy of menstrual hygiene advertising; the museum owns over 1,000 ads from many countries, as well as patents, booklets and other printed and visual material.”

5. Museum of Questionable Medical Devices

Museum of Questionable Medical Devices

The Museum of Questionable Medical Devices shares it’s collection of the hilarious, horrifying, and preposterous medical devices that have been foisted upon the public in their quest for good health. Includes the Prostate Gland Warmer, Phrenology Machine, Recto Rotor, Nose Straightener, Wonder Electro Marvel, and hundreds of other weird devices.

Founder Bob McCoy retired and closed the St. Anthony Main location of the museum in 2002, donating his devices to the Science Museum of Minnesota, which still displays a small number of items in their Collections Gallery.

6. Leila’s Hair Museum

Leila’s Hair Museum

Leila’s Hair Museum in Independance, Missouri is probably the world’s only hair museum, acting as the headquarters for the Victorian Hairwork Society. The museum sports a large collection of hair jewelry and samples dating back to 1725. Hair jewelry really caught on during Victorian times when it was regularly used to honor a dead relative or loved one as part of the mourning process.

7. National Lighter Museum

National Lighter Museum

The National Lighter Museum in Guthrie, Oklahoma has nearly 20,000 pieces, representing over 85,000 years of lighters and fire starters. The only museum of its kind in the world, it is dedicated to collecting and preserving the history of the evolution of lighters.

8. Burger Museum

Burger Museum

If you spent all day thinking of the unusual items that people collect, we bet you’d never think of hamburgers. Harry Sperl, a German immigrant living in America (where else?), has collected more than one thousand hamburger-related items including a hamburger waterbed and a hamburger motorcycle.

The collection includes more than 500 different hamburgers and some pretty unusual burger material. There are banks, biscuit jars, clocks, hats, trays, erasers, badges, magnets, music boxes, a pencil holder, salt and pepper shakers and, of course, the waterbed, which is complete with a sesame seed covered spread and matching pillows. There are signs, posters, glasses, cups, bowls, stuffed toys, T-shirts, towels, calendars and postcards. Most of the material was picked up at flea markets and garage sales, where Harry trawled for burgers with friend and fellow enthusiast Ron Baynton. When Baynton decided to give up collecting hamburgers, Harry bought his collection and added it to his own.

9. The Shoe Museum

The Shoe Museum

Ladies and gentlemen, gird your loins and prepare yourself for some of the most famous shoes in the world. The Shoe Museum includes the shoes of celebrities like Ronald Reagan, Sandy Duncan or Mike Schmidt, plus, the biggest shoe in the world: one made for a woman whose leg had to, later, be amputated.

10. Museum Of Mummies

Museum Of Mummies

The Mummies of Guanajuato are naturally preserved bodies from a cholera outbreak that hit Guanajuato way back in 1833. Since this is basically just a huge open grave with floodlights, its legality and moral status continues to be the subject of much discussion everywhere except in Mexico.

Most of the mummies on display were corpses whose families could not afford to pay a grave tax levied on their families once they died. If you failed to pay the taxes, you guessed it…
