Jeremy Simon550As part of e-NABLE's broader efforts toward releasing an open source myoelectric prosthesis design, we are beginning three separate but connected work efforts in parallel. This Hangout on Air will be focused on modifying the Cyborg Beast design to incorporate adjustable thumb positioning and wrist rotation. Other Hangouts on Air, to be scheduled separately, will focus on methods for powered actuation and EMG signal processing.e-NABLE R&D Hangout - Modified Cyborg Beast Design2014-06-04 03:00:0016  
Virtual Star Party11,984We're taking the Virtual Star Party on the road to SXSW in Austin. Join +Fraser Cain and +Scott Lewis, members of the regular Virtual Star Party team as well as local Austin astronomers who will be sharing their telescopes. If the weather cooperates, we'll be sampling lots of different telescopes and sharing our view of the night sky. If you want to join us in person, we're going to be located at the giant life-sized model of the James Webb Space Telescope, so come by and say hi if you're in the area.Virtual Star Party - SXSW Edition2013-03-10 20:30:00403  
Scott Lewis346,261Many forces were joined in order to perform outreach at South By Southwest for NASA's James Webb Space Telescope. NASA and the Space Telescope Science Institute worked with Ball Aerospace, Northrop Grumman, University of Texas and CosmoQuest in order to engage and interact with the public in Austin, TX. On Saturday, 9th March, 2013, +Tony Darnell, +Fraser Cain, +Pamela Gay, +Frank Summers and myself and possibly some others will also join forces from the +NASA Experience Tent at South By Southwest in order to discuss the amazing and exciting things that are happening today and the future in *space exploration and discovery*. We'll do our best to answer any questions live as they're asked in the event.  If you're in the Austin area, please feel free to stop by afterwards to come talk with the entire group! The NASA Experience Tent will be opening at 12 noon, with talks being given all day with an _extremely_ large visual wall that's ~18 Million wide by 10 million pixels tall that will be showing off World Wide Telescope Tours of the Milky Way Galaxy.  +CosmoQuest +NASA Webb Telescope +Space Fans  #SXSWi   #SXSW   #HangoutsOnAir   #SXSW2013   #ScienceEveryday   #Space   #Science   #Astronomy  South by Southwest Space Science Hangout2013-03-09 10:00:00104

Some of you have been asking "What's next, Karyn?" I have some news that I can share now! During the 2015 Summer season (May-Sept) I will be a guide at Tutka Bay Lodge in Alaska. The slideshow below highlights some of my previous visits at TBL. I look forward to sharing this amazing wilderness with the Tutka Bay Lodge guests!

OK, 3D printer folks. What suggestions do you have for this "alignment?" issue? It's a round spirograph-like part. Look at the top and bottom inside edges (open the pic, zoom in). Note that the alignment is off, but in a weird way. The INSIDE edge is a tiny bit separated from the ring, but it's toward the center! I would expect (if it's an alignment issue) that one inside edge would be off, and the parallel outside edge would be off. But the outside border is fine. I've got this on a MakerBot Rep2, 2 shells, 75% fill, .15 layer. Thoughts?

The brain is amazing. 

Both rectangles are moving at constant speed

At least that's what the creator of this illusion says!  It looks like the yellow and blue rectangles are taking turns going forward - one step at a time.

This is an illusion that's so good it's hard to believe it's an illusion. When the black and white lines disappear, it's easy to see the rectangles are moving at constant speed.  But before that they seem to be taking turns, and pausing when they reach each new line.

Could the creator of this illusion be cheating - fooling you into thinking there's an illusion?   How can you tell, except by making your own version of this animated gif?

Hide one rectangle with your hand.  Then look closely at the other.  Try not to look at the black and white lines.  I think you'll see the rectangle is moving at constant speed.

But if you look away, and watch the rectangle with your peripheral vision, it will seem to move in steps.

We don't just "see what's there".  We construct a mental model of reality from sensory data.  We need  to do this.  But people can manipulate this. 

It's not optical illusions we need to worry about.  It's political illusions, economic illusions, social illusions.  We think we're just seeing what's there... but we're actually constructing a model of reality.  And politicians and other people are busy trying to shape your model, so you'll do what they want.  Escaping their illusions is much, much harder than escaping this optical illusion.

You can probably think of many examples of other  people who are fooled by politicians, ideologies, doctrines and dogmas.   Now list the ways in which you are being fooled.

Oh, you think you're better than average?  Join the club.

Puzzle 1: name the biggest way you've been fooled by a cultural, political or religious illusion.

Puzzle 2: name a way you're just starting to realize that you're being fooled by such an illusion.

For Puzzle 2, it should be just as hard to really believe you're being fooled as it is with this optical illusion.  For example: I'm just starting to realize that I've been fooled into wanting to be a 'bigshot': well-known, and seemingly 'important'.  But it's hard to break out of this belief.  Even now, I'm trying to get you to pay attention to me.  I'm sorry - at least I try to make it worth your while.

Earlier this summer, when I was traveling overseas (and didn't want to accidentally accumulate data charges on my phone), I turned off all notifications for social media, email, etc and also turned off the "run in the background" option for my phone. It made such a difference in how I used my phone that I never turned them back on. What's the difference? I have to manually retrieve mail. I choose when to go to FB and see if someone tagged me or sent a message. Even for G+ I get to choose when it interrupts my day. If people REALLY need to reach me, they can text me. And the people who I would want to have that kind of access know my number and how to reach me. So, if you are looking for ways to stay involved in social media & online services, but limit its infiltration of your schedule, I highly recommend "going to manual"! BONUS: better battery usage
