Optical illusions – Perception is everything so have a closer look at these awesome illusions

Optical illusions can use color, light and patterns to create images that can be misleading or deceptive to our brain. The information gathered by the eye is processed by the brain, creating a perception that in reality does not match the real picture. Perception refers to the interpretation of what we take in through our eyes. Optical illusions occur because our brains trying to interpret what we see and make sense of the world around us. Optical illusions just fool our brains into seeing things that may or may not be real.

Try some of these illusions and discover how it can be difficult for your brain to accurately interpret the images of your eyes. Click one of the images below to begin your exploration of optical illusions.

The First Camera Phone Picture – Who first put a camera in a cell phone?

Jumping ahead a century with an equally important image is the first cellular camera phone. In 1997, while in the hospital after the birth of her daughter, a man named Philippe Kahn software entrepreneur wanted to capture and share an image of Sophie in real time. He connected a digital camera to his flip phone using some original lines of code. After honing his prototype, Sharp first used the technology then to change the world.

Philippe Kahn is credited with the creation of the camera phone in 1997. On 11 June this year, Kahn took the first photo “camera phone” of his newborn daughter in a maternity ward, and then transmitted wirelessly photo more than 2,000 people worldwide. Since “camera phones” existed at that time, Kahn hacked together a primitive combining digital and cell phone camera to send photos in real time.

Kahn then begin LightSurf, a company that has considerable influence in picture messaging. The LightSurf technology is still used by Sprint, Verizon and other major carriers worldwide.

‘Charles Darwin’ ate almost every animal he discovered – Dining Like Darwin

Charles Darwin is most famous for his work as a naturalist, developing a theory of evolution to explain the biological change. A lesser well known on the scientific explorer of the 19th century he had an equally adventurous palate. He ate with several of his impatience specimens, including iguanas, armadillos and rheas.

Darwin developed his exotic appetite at a young age. During his studies at the College of Christ, Cambridge, he chaired Glutton Club of the University. The club’s main objective was to look “strange flesh” and consume the “birds and the beasts that were previously unknown to the human palate. ”

“Although Darwin was finally done pretty well in his final exams, most of her three years was spent eating exotic meats with its Glutton Club, drink too much, his horse, and of course collecting beetles. ”

The club was, by all accounts, a resounding success. Unfortunately for Darwin, the Epicurean company came to a screeching halt when a brown owl particularly stringy was presented for dinner. According to The Guardian, the club members decided to “focus their studies on the effects of the port accompanying their place meat. ”

The “Father of evolution” continued to have many more culinary adventures aboard the HMS Beagle, “where he was deliberately fed armadillos, which” taste and look like duck, “and an unnamed 20 chocolate-colored rodents books, he announced, was “the best meat I have ever tasted. ”

His only culinary misstep occurred in December 1833 at Port Desire, when the artist ship procured a rhea (a large flightless bird native Altiplano and Patagonia in South America) for the Christmas dinner. Darwin wrote in his notes that he realized he was eating an extremely rare petise Avestruz. He immediately jumped off the table and tried to save the remains of the unfortunate bird victim. He managed to save “the head and neck, legs, and most large feathers. “

Thomas Edison Did Not Invent The Light Bulb

Thomas Edison is a well-known inventor. But among other inventors of his day, he was probably best known for the large number of patents he owned – 1,093, to be exact. Edison is known for being the creator of not only innovative technologies, but also myths surrounding it.

He often boasted that he could only sleep three hours a night and never received formal education, two over-stated statements. Arguably, the most well-known myth surrounding Edison is that he invented the electric bulb.

In 1800, the Italian inventor Alessandro Volta developed the vault cell, a machine made of alternating copper and zinc disks interspersed with cardboard soaked in salt water. The vane battery was conducting electricity when copper wire was attached to either end and the wire was beginning to shine.

Thomas Edison

In 1802, Humphry Davy found a way to connect voltage cells and carbon electrodes, producing the first electric lamp. Davy’s lamp was imperfect: it was too bright and turned off quickly.

Years later, in 1840, Warren de la Rue developed a more efficient light bulb using coiled platinum, but its price made it expensive. English chemist Joseph Swan improved the design in 1860 by using much cheaper carbonized paper filaments instead of platinum coils.

In 1879, Edison finally entered the melee by replacing the filament of the Swan bulb with a filament of high electrical resistance. The Edison light bulb was the most efficient and economical at the time, but it was certainly not the first to come up with its original idea. The bulbs that we rely on today are the result of a massive collective effort that has lasted for many years. They were not the work of a man or a woman.
