Scientists have created a virtual reality application that allows you to see the world around us as primates see it.
The program allows you to see the world the way it sees tarsiers. This writes "racurs".
Long-eater is a nocturnal animal from the forests of Southeast Asia. Their gigantic eyes have exceptional visual sensitivity. Also, these animals are somewhat similar to the characters in the film "Gremlins."
Tarsier Goggles, contains three virtual environments - "Matrix", "Labyrinth" and "Rainy Forest Bornean", demonstrating how the vision of the tarsier is different from human in terms of sharpness, color vision and brightness. Bornei tarsii have protanopia, the form of red-green color blindness.
With virtual reality glasses, users can move through the forest, jump and cling to trees in “dark maze-like space, and do everything to feel like a real tarsier.
Scientists note that their application can be used as a learning tool in the school program. Most ninth and tenth grade students in the United States study optics and natural selection.
Professor of anthropology Nathaniel Dominie is confident that these topics need to be combined and considered from the point of view of optical principles. This will help to understand why natural selection contributes to such huge eyes in such a tiny predator.
The human eye is made up of muscles, the good health of these muscles depends on how good the person’s vision is. Today, most people spend a lot of time looking at tiny text on smartphones and computer screens. This often leads to eye fatigue, which can further affect the development of various eye problems.

Microsoft experts in collaboration with
researchers from the University of Washington have successfully completed the process of converting digital information to DNA and vice versa. Scientists practice this technique not for the first time, but unlike previous experiments, the technology corporation was able to fully automate the process. In the future, this may significantly reduce the volume of conventional drives and the size of data centers.

During the first launch, the Microsoft device prototype successfully translated the word HELLO into an unusual format. The device encoded bits (1 and 0) in
DNA sequences (A, C, T, G), synthesized the molecule itself and
retained it as a liquid. Then the stored DNA was decoded back into bits after processing with special reagents. On encoding and subsequent decryption of the record
volume of 5 bytes device spent 21 hours, but the researchers said that already
found a way to reduce this time by 10-12 hours.
The nucleotide form of the "liquid" version of the word HELLO "took away" only 4 μg of approximately 1 mg of the synthesized DNA. According to experts, this method will allow all the information stored in a large data center to fit into a drive of a little more than a few playing cubes. High reliability of such “disks” is also noted: as Microsoft indicates,
Some DNA samples have been preserved for tens of thousands of years - for example, in the tusks of mammoths.

Last week, a flying motorcycle convertible Moto Volante was presented in France. In the ground form, it works like an ATV, and in the air it turns into a quadrocopter, reports with reference to
Made this vehicle the company Lazareth. The four-wheel Lazareth LM-847 became the base for the novelty. Aerobike was supposed to get a 470-strong Maserati engine from it, and four Jetcat turbines should lift it into the air.
The flying motorcycle received in exchange two electric motors and six turbines - one in each wheel and two under the pedals. When flying, the wheels turn horizontally due to hydraulic drives. Moto Volante weighs 140 kg.
A motorcycle from Lazareth will be able to take off from a special site. To do this, just wait a minute, while the turbines are heated.
Moto Volante will be officially presented at the Gitex Innovations Show in Dubai in the autumn of 2019. Aerobike will cost about $ 560 thousand.
The world's first flying transforming car, Liberty Pioneer, is transformed from a car into an aircraft in 10 minutes.

About it reports the publication Digital Trends.
The robot looks and behaves like a real Labrador. It is intended for older people with dementia, as well as those who feel lonely. The robot must help them cope with stress and anxiety.
In response to stroking the robed baby moves his head and wags his tail. He is also able to yelp in response to voice commands.
As the founder and CEO of Tombot Tom Stevens, many people are unable to care for this dog for health reasons. Alternatively, a similar young boy can be used for emotional support.
"We aim to fill the emotional emptiness of those people who cannot take care of a real animal," said Stevens.
He thought about creating a similar robot after his mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2011.
"During the many difficult days that we had shortly after the diagnosis was clarified, the worst thing was that I had to remove her dog," said Stevens.
Tombot recently launched a Kickstarter fundraiser. At the moment, the company has already collected more than 40 thousand dollars with a target of 20 thousand.
Prices for robots start at $ 299. The release of the device to the market is scheduled for August 2020.

In the United States, scientists from the Rochester Institute of Technology have developed a toilet seat to monitor the state of the cardiovascular system. The novelty is designed to reduce the rates of re-hospitalization of patients with congestive heart failure. The mechanism of work, scientists have described in an article in the journal JMIR mHealth and uHealth.
The toilet seat is equipped with devices for reading the electrical and mechanical activity of the heart, heart rate, blood pressure, oxygenation of blood, as well as the volume of blood passing through the heart with each stroke. A special algorithm will analyze the patient's condition and in the event of his deterioration, transfer data to cardiologists.
Such an approach makes it possible to detect deterioration even before the onset of noticeable symptoms and, instead of hospitalization, only a consultation with a physician.
It should be noted that the seat will save the hospital money - the penalty for re-hospitalization of 150 patients is about $ 500 thousand per year, while providing the same number of patients with seats - only $ 200 thousand.
