Un moulinet électrostatique (Vidéo)

L’effet de pointe d’un conducteur électrique est illustré par cette expérience : en s’échappant par la pointe d’un conducteur, les charges communiquent à celui-ci leur quantité de mouvement. Le moulinet se met alors en rotation rapide. La quantité de mouvement d’une charge est infime, mais avec un très grand nombre ...

Spatial and Temporal Sequence: Film, animation and design theory - toward a constructed morphology
This paper presents an investigation of film, space, form and motion to expose issues of spatial perception. The objective is to use a brief moment of constructed moving imagery (a film scene) as the vehicle to develop a spatial/temporal sequence. The design research focuses on an examination of the procedure or process constructed by the director/cinematographer. The changing position of the camera continually changes the relationship of the frame to the viewed context. The project asks the stu

Kinect Code Camp 2011: Team Lambda

Recently we had our Kinect launch with a special Channel 9 Live event. Just prior to this we held a 24 hour Code Camp to allow developers to play with the Kinect SDK for 24 hours and see what they could come up with. I interviewed the teams after the event to take a look at their project and get an idea of the challenges and surprises they found as they worked with the SDK.

Team Lambda includes Shariful Shaikot, Dale Cox, and Justin Wolford. The idea behind this Kinect project was

Frameworks for Computational Design of Textile Micro-Architectures and Material Behavior in Forming
Material behavior can be defined as the confluence of associative rules, contextual pressures and constraints of materialization. In more general terms, it can be parameterized as topologies, forces and materiality. Forming behavior means resolving the intricate matrix of deterministic and indeterministic factors that comprise and interrelate each subset of these material- nherent conditions. This requires a concise design framework which accumulates the confluent behavior through successive and

Using the Web to do Social Science
Duncan Watts discusses how the Internet is beginning to lift a long-time constraint of social science research on emergent collective behaviour: the difficulty of measuring interactions between people, at scale, over time, while also observing behaviour. Social science is often concerned with the emergence of collective behavior out of the interactions of large numbers of individuals; but in this regard it has long suffered from a severe measurement problem - namely that interactions between peo

LSE Literary Weekend - The Financial Crisis, Climate Change and Energy
Political action and intervention, on local, national and international levels, is going to have a decisive effect on whether or not we can limit global warming, as well as how we adapt to that already occurring. At the moment, however, Anthony Giddens argues controversially, we do not have a systematic politics of climate change.

Science in Focus: Force and Motion: Workshop 8. Bend and Stretch
We all expect a spring to stretch or compress when a force is applied, but forces can even deform solid objects like the floor or the top of a table. In this workshop, students in a high school classroom explore ideas about tension and normal force. By applying a force to a spring and measuring the distance the spring is stretched, the students calculate the force constant or stretchiness of the spring. Lecture demonstrations using student volunteers help to illustrate that even rigid objects be
