During the past 18 months, radiologists in Sweden have performed more than 100 virtual autopsies on murder victims, according to Anders Ynnerman, a professor in the Department of Science and Technology at Linköpings University, who also works at the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) in Linköping. Ynnerman says evidence from virtual autopsies has been used to clarify the cause of death in several criminal trials in Sweden.

The flight of a bee

November 28th, 2005 | Filed under: Biology, Mechanical Tech, Video | 1 Comment »

Michael Dickinson and his colleagues filmed hovering bees at 6000 frames per second, and plotted the unusual pattern of wing beats. The wing sweeps back in a 90˚ arc, then flips over as it returns – an incredible 230 times a second. The team made a robot to scale to measure the forces involved.

The Korsakow-System, developed by Florian Thalhofer, is a graphic non-linear editing computer program for creating interactive films. Scenes are assigned, associated, and organized in a generative rule-based system, extending the editing process into the viewer’s chance encounters and choices.
