Startup Wants to Bring Buildable Electronics to All

MIT Media Lab alumna and entrepreneur Ayah Bdeir wants to help all people worldwide, tech savvy or not, understand and build creatively with electronics.

It’s the ambitious mission powering her fast-growing startup littleBits, which sells a library of small modules (called “Bits modules”) integrated with electronic functions — such as lights, sounds, and motors — that snap together with magnets for do-it-yourself (DIY) prototyping.

Underwater explosions are, in general, much more dangerous than those in air. This video shows an underwater blast at 30,000 fps. During the initial blast, a hot sphere of gas expands outward in a shock wave. In air, some of the energy of this pressure wave would be dissipated by compressing the air. Since water is incompressible, however, the blast instead moves water aside as the bubble expands. Eventually, the bubble expands to the point where its pressure is less than that of the water around it, which causes the bubble to collapse. But the collapse increases the gas pressure once more, kicking off a series of expansions and collapses. Each bubble contains less energy than the previous, thanks to the loss of pushing the water aside. (Video credit: K. Kitagawa)

malformalady:

Red Tide caused by coral spawning. Most coral species are hermaphrodites but some are either male or female. During the mass spawning events, coral eggs and sperm are released into the water and float to the surface. Fertilization then takes place and the process of larval development begins. Coral spawning often occurs during periods of calm seas and light on-shore winds. These conditions can result in coral spawn not being dispersed leading to the formation of coral spawn slicks which are often pushed onshore by winds and currents. This may cause the surrounding water to become oxygen depleted due to biological processes in the water column causing death of coral, fish and other biota.
