Tech Stuff 10

 

This is a sort of search and discover newsletter of my findings of things that may relate to technology in one way or another.  It might be the latest gosh wow tech, it might be something as old of humanity.  It might relate to science large or small.  It might be art for art’s sake.  Or somebody just doing something funky. Because I think that technology is just the representation of human creativity and breaking boundaries.  So I’m certainly not going to place boundaries here except that it won’t be the same old, same old.  So almost no gadgets or yacking about the latest phone or whatever, unless of course it involves taking them apart or destroying them in unusual ways.  Or putting them to work in imaginative ways that most people won’t even think of.  So buckle up, it’s going to be a fun ride.

Picture of an atom.

Actually a picture of the electron waveflow around a Hydrogen atom.  Very cool.

Very small motor.

That thing in the picture sort of gives me nightmares.  It looks fast and lethal.

Somebody should warn them that this might not be a good  idea.  On the other hand they might be talking to the guy in the video above.  In that case I KNOW it’s not a good idea.

    I wonder about that hydrogen atom orbital picture: So they do photoionization, knocking an electron loose from the atom and propagating it towards a screen through an electrostatic lens … but they have to be doing something new and interesting at the screen too (“protective” measurements?), otherwise all they’d get is a dot somewhere with a probability proportional to the wave-function, rather than the whole distribution.
