We all love sunglasses, and some need glasses. But, we aren't alone. Animals love them too! And they are totally adorable wearing them!
If you're a hipster L.A.-girl who likes to skateboard, then the new Snapchat video sunglasses called "Spectacles," are made just for you.
As Snap's (formerly Snapchat) first product, they take 10-second (up to 30 seconds) of hands-free video clips you can upload to your account. You can now take video as you do your normal, relatable, routine of skateboarding in an empty swimming pool, skateboarding down the beach sidewalk, or even skateboarding while holding hands in a chain with your hipster girlfriends!
For all your skateboarding Snapchat usages, they cost $130 and are being distributed to a select group to hype them at this time. Designed by tech heads, the reviews are mixed as people decide if they actually want to try this one out.
Check out the spec's--ahem--specs here, and tell us in the comments below if you'd buy these.
So it turns out that insects--specifically Sensei Mantis--might be useful for better understanding 3D vision. Dr. Jenny Read of Newcastle University, a professor of vision science, confirms:
"Despite their minute brains, mantises are sophisticated visual hunters which can capture prey with terrifying efficiency. We can learn a lot by studying how they perceive the world," she said. "Better understanding of their simpler processing systems helps us understand how 3D vision evolved, and could lead to possible new algorithms for 3D depth perception in computers."
Short and skinny of it--that's awesome.
That was kind of chill as well.
Corning, the company that makes the glass used on many smartphones, has hired the Mythbusters as pitchmen to explain the technology behind their product and of course, try to smash it.
In the videos, they dub this era "The Glass Age," and go into a bit about the history of the material.
They also discuss a new thinner and more flexible glass product called Willow Glass, which is expected to be incorporated into products for consumers in 2016.
