The Royal Society accepted James Cook to convey the scientific staff of the expedition to observe the transit of Venus due to occur on 3rd June 1769. Cook left England on Aug. 12, 1768 and, after the momentous discovery of New South Wales, arrived at Otaheite [i.e. Tahiti] on April 13, 1769 in plenty of time to build an observatory to carefully measure the transit across the Sun’s sphere on June 3, an event which occurs only twice within 8 years once every 120 years. Relief is shown by hachures and pictorially for ground cover.



So this is what happened to Ice Cream Island after it got a little bit too warm.

ocrprocess:

A look at some lightning strikes over two time periods [July 15, 2013, and June 1-5, 2013] and their relation to altitude.
The gif breaks apart the country and sorts the strikes from areas of highest altitude to lowest.
Green dots are strikes with a negative amplitude
Red dots are strikes with a positive amplitude
Some strikes were given a height of 0.. which is why they appear below grade.
 

[heights are exaggerated] [see a larger version of the gif here]

Pixie Dust: Graphical Levitation System (2014-)

Presentation for SIGGRAPH 2014 for a system developed by the University of Tokyo that can levitate and manipulate small objects with ultrasound waves. This project was announced at the very start of this year, but is introducing the idea of projecting colour to the levitating forms - video embedded below:

We propose a novel graphics system based on the expansion of 3D-acoustic-manipulation technology. In the conventional study of acoustic levitation, small objects are trapped in the acoustic beams of standing waves. We expand this method by changing the distribution of the acoustic-potential field (APF). Using this technique, we can generate the graphics using levitated small objects. Our approach makes available many expressions such as the expression by materials and nondigital appearance. These kinds of expressions are used in many applications and we aim to combine them with digital controllability.

You can find out more about the project here

Pretty straightforward, Tufte endorsed, Excel table cleanup job. (Though there’s nothing inherently wrong with Calibri in my opinion)
