Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

…if this works and we put it on every window we’ve got we will be set for energy forever. My god I love living in the future.

ratessa asked: Bry! Jako osoba lekko rozdarta mam pytanie, na jakie studia iść, by miało to jakikolwiek sens w aspekcie bycia rysownikiem. Po mojej szkole już będę mieć dyplom plastyka, acz bez studiów bądź jako freelancer obawiam się, że nie pociągnę daleko, a wymarzone kierunki albo są w UK albo kosztują krocie. Wymarzyło mi się projektowanie postaci, czy komiksy bądź ach, animacja, z której robię dyplom, lecz jak z tego wyżyć a też gdzie to studiować ech! A ASP mi się nie uśmiecha ani trochę.

beiibis:

Jeżeli ASP Ci się nie uśmiecha, to nie musisz tam studiować - w Twoim wymarzonym zawodzie nie potrzebny jest żaden papier, wystarczy tylko (aż?)  dobre portfolio. Jeżeli kręci Cię animacja to możesz pójść na ten kierunek na łodzkiej filmówce. Albo w ogóle studiować coś innego i rozwijać się w swoim plastycznym kierunku na własną rękę - z tym, że wtedy Twój czas na rozwój będzie ograniczony, bo będziesz musiała go dzielić pomiędzy sztukę a studiowanie innej dziedziny. Dlatego jeżeli chcesz studiować a później pracować w komiksie, concept artach czy ilustracji - najlepiej wybrać ASP. Jeżeli nie zależy Ci na studiach, to najlepiej je po prostu olać i zacząć rozwijać umiejętności niezależnie. Dyplom jest nieważny, w tym zawodzie umiejętności są wszystkim.

Crow: CROW YES!

It’s actually impossible to measure how many fucks a corvid give because there is no device sensitive enough to register such a tiny amount.

science/animal side of tumblr… explain to me the birb thing

Tail Pulling is a behavior noted in many corvids. The practical application is to create a distraction that will allow the birb to make off with the target’s food. Imagine being in the lunch room and a large fellow has a Twinkie you covet. You can’t just take it from him because he’ll defend his Twinkie. But if you thwap him on the back of his neck and then dash around to snag the Twinkie while he investigates, you stand a decent chance of enjoying spongey goodness. This is basically that in birb form.

Except corvids don’t only do this as a distraction. Sometimes they seem to just being doing it to mess with other animals/birbs. But to use my lunch room analogy, there are times you might thwap someone sneakily on the back of the neck just for amusement. Primates exhibit behavior that appears to be just be annoying other animals for amusement. Given how intelligent crows are, its not unlikely that this is a manifestation of an innate desire to just fuck with someone else for the fun of it. Such as this from the link above:

THANK YOU FOR THE BIRB KNOWLEDGE
