New streetlamps could improve your view of the stars.
A new paper published in the journal Optics Express describes a system for focusing light from streetlamps directly on the area required, with almost no light leakage horizontally or vertically. Conventional street lamps scatter up to 20% of their energy away from where it is required, not only wasting power but also leading to light pollution which obscures your view of the night sky.
The proposed LED lamp uses a lens to limit where the light is projected, with a reflecting cavity to recyle light that would otherwise be wasted. The team thinks the system would use between 10 to 50% less power to illuminate a section of road than current LED streetlamps, which are already more efficient than regular lamps.
A prototype is being developed and is hoped to be completed this October.
So, so cute! I recognize some Fifi Chachnil. Also, I’d like that hair color.
My favorite fashion photoshoots - Pin-Up Story feat. Jenny Knoch photographed by Marc Philbert
LOVE ALL OF THESE
omg yes!!! i was looking for the full shoot of this. i have the first one as my background :))))
For almost every day last month Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi (who often goes by the nickname Red) created a fun illustration made with common (and occasionally not so common) food. Her parameters were simple: the image had to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop could be a white plate. With that in mind Yi set out to create landscapes, animals, homages to pop culture, and even a multi-frame telling of the three little pigs. The project, which still appears to be ongoing, has been documented heavily around the web, but if you haven’t seen it all head over to her Facebook and read an interview on designboom. Photos will also be appearing on her Instagram at @redhongyi.
Social camouflage. We spent a lifetime taking care of our appearance to others and giving our best face possible beauty, sometimes we only see us as q monsters disguised as humans, and thinks it reflects what are you trying to human or human monster.
Episode VII Teaser Posters…
These are a few of my favorites fan made posters that have been making the rounds around the internet these days. I’ve listed the artists below…
As cool as these are, I was excited to hear that Disney is supposedly interested in getting Drew Struzan back to do posters for this next trilogy.
