Automata

Automata theory is the study of abstract machines and automata, as well as the computational problems that can be solved using them. It is a theory in theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics (a subject of study in both mathematics and computer science). The word automata (the plural of automaton) comes from the Greek word αὐτόματα, which means “self-acting”.

Effing cool…. What Happens When a Bird’s Wings Sync Up Perfectly with a Camera’s Frame Rate

Sometimes security cameras can take some strange footage, and Texan Al Brooks was in for a treat when he reviewed video from outside his home. As a bird flies by the camera, it looks to almost be floating while pausing for a moment to take in the scenery.

Veranda to dish….

On June 20th, I took the step to self reliance and purchased an vertical aeroponics system from Al Henry [alhenry2@gmail.com] a local(USVI) hydroponics system maker and this weekend harvested the first of many produce.

Here is the system

Before

Currently:

Plants are :

Kale
Parsley
Thyme & Oregano
Basil
Spinach
Collard Greens
Lettuce
Arugula
Onions (Scallions)
Chives
Rosemary
Sweet Marjoram
Cilantro
Swiss Chard
Mustard (Greens)
Lemon Grass
Mint
Sage
Tarragon

 

This is a time lapse of the system(click on image to start animation):

And the resulting meal that used produce from the system.

Test it or it doesn’t apply

There are 3 areas of Physics.

I fall into the first area, Applied Physics and partially the second, Experimental.  I fall into those areas because I need to be able to repeat my findings and expect them to remain the same.  Any change is an indicator that the system has changed.

Theoretical physics is sorcery.

Still interested in College ? Study either liberal arts, biotech or a robotic engineering.

if you you still interested in college for yourself or advising someone else, then take

  • Liberal arts where you study human nature
  • Biotech as we are still carbon based entities
  • Engineering involving robotics  –  techproresearch.com

Unmanned U.S. Air Force space plane lands after secret, two-year mission

Very Impressive……Very impressive !!

The U.S. military’s experimental X-37B space plane landed on Sunday at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, completing a classified mission that lasted nearly two years, the Air Force said.

The unmanned X-37B, which resembles a miniature space shuttle, touched down at 7:47 a.m. EDT (1147 GMT) on a runway formerly used for landings of the now-mothballed space shuttles, the Air Force said in an email.

3D-Printed Embedded Electronics Make this Drone Ready to Fly Straight out of the Printer

Researchers from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, have created a 3D-printed drone that is almost completely flight-ready straight out of the 3D printer by using printed embedded electronics.
