Selfies with the universe?

cosmic-ray-particle-showers

Instead of a taking a selfie, use your phone to solve the mysteries of the universe.

Turn your phone into a particle ray detector! Two physicists who work at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland are creating an app that transforms smart phones into particle ray detectors.

Read about their project.

Join the project!

#Physics not selfies (can we make that a thing?)

Brilliant or just plain sad? You decide.

Look photographers, the rest of the world is finally catching up to those of us who pay attention to what we see. app-2-e812ea2b4eaa565803e89b08ba3d895b
The WhiteAlbum is an app that lets you utilize your smartphone camera as if it were a analog camera.

It works like this: shoot 24 images without seeing or being able to edit the final product (just like shooting on film) and then, about a week later you’ll receive a white album of your printed photos.

The website says: Get a good look at what you’re shooting, because you won’t see it again until the prints are in your hands

Is the App a great idea, encouraging a resurgence in printed images and slower looking or is it just a pale facsimile of shooting with an analog camera? Tell me what you think.

THE EDGE OF VISION

 

Turning time into space!

Turning time into space? What the what what?

Researchers at Washington University (St.Louis, Missouri) have created a camera that could take a hundred billion pictures in a second, enough to record the speed of light, the fastest phenomena in the universe.

Now, that’s Instagram. (Drum roll please…I’ll be here all week.)

Biomedical engineer Lihong Wang, the head of the Washington University research team that invented the camera, explains “For the first time, humans can literally see light pulses traveling in space at the speed of light,” Wang said.

A video captured by Washington University’s Lihong Wang’s new imaging system, known as “compressed ultrafast photography,” shows a laser pulse propagating in air and being reflected from a mirror. The movie is slowed down 10 billion times to make it visible to the human eye. (Video courtesy of Washington University in St. Louis)

Read more about the Ultrafast camera here.

Welcome back, photographers! Let’s make the invisible, visible.
