Take for example, Impossible Project s new I–1 camera, a sleek instant camera controlled by an accompanying smartphone app.What if you want something a little less expensive and a little more DIY though?The answer might be this clever instant camera made from a Raspberry Pi computer and a thermal printer, stuffed inside a cardboard box.Reminiscent in quality of the iconic Game Boy Camera which once held a record for being the smallest digital camera and its accompanying printer, this little contraption is made up of a Raspberry Pi Model A , a Pi Camera Board, a thermal receipt printer, a few buttons, and a cardboard box.The guide is far from beginner material, but if you have experience with Raspberry Pi computers or Arduino builds, it should be a fairly straightforward creation, especially considering the code needed to get the build up and running is provided.Burgess chose to recycle the box the thermal printer cam in, but for more adventurous builders, there are plenty of other options, including 3D printing.
Gone are the days of slopping soup into a blender, ladle by ladle.Frosty Smoothies and ShakesForget the Magic Bullet, you can make shakes and smoothies for one super quickly with your immersion blender.Just dump your ingredients in your receptacle of choice and get to blending, making sure to start with the blades fully immersed in the liquid before slowly moving them up and down to let everyone get to know each other.The ingredients are startlingly similar to those found in mayo—egg yolk, lemon, water, and salt are all there—but you ll also be working with delicious melted butter.One word of caution: when using your immersion blender in a pot of hot, goopy liquid, ensure the head of the blender is completely submerged, so as to prevent splashing.You can also fill the included cup with hot water and a bit of surfactant, submerge the blender, and blend the soapy water to get it all up in the bowl of the head.
Update: We've had 4K gaming on the PC for a while now, but this year at E3 2016 4K took off in a big way with the announcement of Microsoft's 4K Xbox code-named Project Scorpio.Before we get into the specifics of each technology, here's a video outlining 4K in a nutshell.And that perseverance has paid off with LG launching its first 4K OLED television this year.But, should you have any doubts about the pace at which Ultra-HD content is coming down the pipeline, today's TVs do such a remarkable job with 1080p content that you almost certainly won't feel shortchanged.HDMI 2.0a is capable of HDR, which is limited to a very specific range of televisions from each manufacturer.On the other hand, if you're price sensitive or want to wait until the content side of the equation is a bit more solved, it absolutely makes sense to wait.
How to Buy a Food ProcessorI ll be honest, a food processor is not the cheapest kitchen purchase you ll ever make, but a good one will give you many years of happy cooking.Below are some of the factors you ll want to consider when picking yours:Chopping: As explained in the above video by America s Test Kitchen, how well a food processor chops depends on a super responsive pulse button the blade should only move when the button is being pressed and should stop the moment your finger is removed and small gaps between the blade and sides and bottom of the bowl small spaces are harder for food to hide in .Straight-sided bowls let food fall back towards the blades, whereas food can get stuck on sloped sides.Slicing and Dicing: Beyond chopping, a good food processor should also be able to slice and shred cleanly, without bruising or crushing food, and with minimal waste.
True, made-from-scratch Casesar dressing is a terrible thing to waste, but even if you find yourself with an extra bit of that cheesy, creamy emulsion and don t feel like another salad in a store-bought bottle, do not fret; it makes an excellent pan of roasted vegetables.It s really just a matter of a simple swap.Instead of tossing your veggies with olive oil, salt, and pepper, coat them with that last little bit of Caesar dressing and roast at 400F until they get crispy and caramelized.Once you availed yourself of that magic, do the same thing with chicken wings, and then check out the link below for eight more Caesar-centric ideas.10 Ways to Use Caesar Dressing Beyond the Salad The Kitchn
The sun is out and the smell of barbecue is in the air.But we're all going to be indoors, glued to the TV, because Bake Off is back.Read on to find out why, and rest assured that every product in our list has been fully tested and reviewed by us, so you can buy with confidence.The 16-wire whisk is great for whipping, while the stainless-steel beaters will handle heavier mixtures with aplomb.Two sturdy dough hooks are on hand for bread, and there's a mixing rod for emulsifying liquids.It's a handy, compact alternative to a stand mixer at a fraction of the cost.
If you re allergic to eggs, or just don t eat them for whatever reason, you may feel left out from a few food categories, but creamy aioli doesn t need to be one of them.There are actually two tasty recipes that are egg-abstainer friendly, and both are super easy to make.The first is just a simple emulsion of olive oil and garlic, along with a little lemon juice and salt.Watch the above video for the full procedure, but the first thing you re going to need to do is mash up your garlic really well with a healthy sprinkling of salt using a mortar and pestle.Once you have a nice paste, drizzle a teaspoon or two of lemon juice in there and work that in.Next, gradually mix in a 1/4 cup of light olive oil, drizzling in a little bit at a time and mixing each aliquot in with the pestle until creamy smooth.
A policeman stands guard in front of the Pyramid of Khufu, the largest of the Great Pyramids of Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt, August 31, 2016.Researchers using an imaging technology called muography to see inside the Great Pyramid of Giza believe they have found two previously undiscovered cavities in the more than 4,500-year-old structure, which is the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh Khufu.We are now able to confirm the existence of a void hidden behind the North Face, that could have the form of at least one corridor going inside the Great Pyramid, Scan Pyramid reported over the weekend.The precise shape, size, and exact position of this void is now under further investigation.It should be done with the help of 12 new Muon Emulsion plates that are installed in the descending corridor, and will be collected by the end of October 2016.The team said it had also found a second void behind the pyramid s descending corridor.
Regardless of how you feel about the rise of mainstream diet trends, kale may be here to stay.From hip, urban cafes to the sprawling aisles of your local Costco, you d be hard-pressed to find a thriving restaurant or grocer that doesn t sell the tough, leafy green.Yet you might have an equally hard time successfully replicating the almighty kale salad at home.These are exactly the types of issues that Dan Souza and Molly Birnbaum wanted to solve when they set out to write Cook s Science—Cook s Illustrated s super-nerdy guide to navigating a home cook s most vexing questions.We use the scientific method in our recipe development in order to figure out the best methods for making our favorite dishes, says Souza.One of those methods includes man-handling kale leaves in order to soften their texture, a tip kale enthusiasts describe as massaging the kale.
Many photographers toss around the cliche that they live and breath cameras — but one photographer could actually live inside his.Photographer Kurt Moser is converting a Russian Ural truck into a camera capable of shooting images on 4.9-foot glass plates that weigh nearly 90 pounds.The reimagined truck serves as both a camera and darkroom, and allows Moser to work with the very large format remotely — and his website even says he will both work and live in the giant camera truck.Kickstarter campaign aims to revive glass-plate photographyDesigned to capture the beauty of Italy s South Tyrolean Dolomites mountains with the large and historic glass plate process, the truck uses an APO Nikkor 1780 mm lens.Moser said the lens is one of only ten in existence, and was one of the biggest hurdles in realizing the project.
If you have old instant camera photos lying around, here s a fun way to repurpose them.In the above video, photographer Matt Day shows you how to do an emulsion lift so you can transfer those photos to paper for a vintage, distressed look.Your instant photos don t have to be old, of course.This is a fun project for new photos, too, and it s easier than you might think.All you need is a tray of water, some paper he uses watercolor paper in the video , and a brush.Remove the black backing from the photo, then submerge the remaining photo in water.
Tetra Pak has launched its next-generation high-shear inline mixer, offering high ingredient-mixing performance.Featuring a design that produces fine, consistent and stable emulsions, the R370-1000D reduces the need for downstream homogenisation and delivers a better quality end product, according to the company.The mixer features the integration of a built-in deaerating system, a flexible powder introduction system and a redesigned mixing head.This allows the machine to handle high viscosities at up to 2,000 cP and break the size of the droplets to 1 µm, significantly smaller than the industry average of 7 µm.The output of a finer, more consistent and more stable emulsion reduces the need for downstream homogenisation, a highly energy-intensive step in food processing.This means that it is now possible to eliminate the homogenisation step altogether in the production of certain types of ice-creams, cutting energy consumption by up to 50% in the overall process.
Alison Sweeney of the University of Pennsylvania has been studying giant clams since she was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Santa Barbara.These large mollusks, which anchor themselves to coral reefs in the tropical waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans, can grow to up to three-feet long and weigh hundreds of pounds.The lustrous cells on the surface of the clam scatter bright sunlight, which typically runs the risk of causing fatal damage to the cell, but the clams efficiently convert the sunlight into fuel.Using what they learn from these giant clams, the researchers hope to improve the process of producing biofuel.Sweeney, an assistant professor of physics in the Penn School of Arts and Sciences, and her collaborator Shu Yang, a professor of materials science and engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, refer to the clams as "solar transformers" because they are capable of absorbing bright sunlight at a very high rate and scattering it over a large surface area.She and Ph.D. student Hye-Na Kim devised a method of synthesizing nanoparticles and adding them to an emulsion -- a mixture of water, oil, and soapy molecules called surfactants -- to form microbeads mimicking the iridocytes, the cells in giant clams responsible for solar transforming.
If you’re a fan of a simple oil and vinegar dressing for your salad, your days of having to shake the bottle for a few seconds to mix both ingredients could soon be over.Researchers at MIT have found a way to combine water and oil-based substances so that they stay mixed for months on end.There are several reasons why oil and water (and water-based solutions like vinegar) resist mixing: oil is less dense than water creating a propensity for it to float on top of H2O, water molecules naturally knit tightly to each other using strong hydrogen bonds, and the fact that oil tends to be hydrophobic, repelling water instead of attracting it.As a result, if you want the two to mix for more than just a few minutes, you’ll need to create an emulsion by vigorously shaking or vibrating the mixture to create tiny droplets that take much longer to coalesce into larger drops and eventually completely separate.Creating an emulsion is an energy-intensive process, and expensive on an industrial scale.But the new approach developed at MIT is much cheaper and easier to implement.

Used as drag-reduction coatings for water vehicles, these surfaces can even help with speeding up cargo ships and military equipment so as to save energy.The dream of research and development on liquid-repellents is a structure that has robust liquid repellency, strong mechanical stability, and is inexpensive to produce on a commercial scale.However, the functional outcomes of existing liquid-repellent surfaces have not been satisfactory, because of inadequacies of conventional structural design and fabrication approaches in engineering microstructures and properties of such surfaces.The challenge was recently overcome by breakthrough research led by Professor Wang Liqiu at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, the University of Hong Kong (HKU) through the development of a robust liquid-repellent structure and the fabrication of porous surfaces by an innovative microfluidic-droplet-based technique.The paper was recently published in academic journal Nature Communications (Zhu P. A., Kong T. T., Tang X. and Wang L. Q.Well-defined porous membranes for robust omniphobic surfaces via microfluidic emulsion templating, Nature Communications 8, 15823).
Monitoring infant health metrics, such as pulse and breathing rate, is tricky and existing devices are cumbersome.A newly developed technology could change that, though, using conducting liquid emulsions.The liquid has been detailed in paper published today in the Nanoscale journal from the Royal Society of Chemistry; inspiration for it came from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s plea for cheap wearable tech that can track babies’ health.The research comes from University of Sussex School of Mathematics and Physical Sciences Professor Alan Dalton, as well as a team of physicists from the same university.The paper describes a liquid emulsion made of graphene, oil, and water.The image above shows a tube containing the liquid, which itself experiences a conductivity change when the tube is stretched even a slight amount.
A team of researchers at the University of California in Irvine, California has demonstrated a novel process to produce cell-sized lipid vesicles (CLVs) from microfluidically generated double emulsion templates by investigating the interfacial parameters that control double emulsion stability for storage, and their subsequent dewetting to form multisomes or GUVs (subsets of CLVs).Cell-sized lipid vesicles (CLVs) have long been of particular interest for many therapeutic, biosensing, and artificial cell applications, as the lipid bilayer mimics a cell membrane and is a very versatile and selective physical boundary, which can be easily functionalized to meet a variety of needs.This is especially relevant for emerging applications in medicine, where functional particles can be utilized to elicit a therapeutic cellular response, and in biosensing, where small reaction containers can be used to detect even single molecules of a specific target.Unfortunately, the use of CLVs in such areas has been limited to research and laboratory work.Producing uninform cell-sized, unilamellar lipid vesicles requires microfluidic technology, as common place bulk methods such as gentle hydration and electroswelling typically form heterogeneous populations of unilamellar and multi-lamellar vesicles, with little control over size or material encapsulation.Typical microfluidic methods of producing CLVs eliminate most of these shortcomings, but they are formed from double emulsion templates that utilize volatile solvents that can be detrimental to encapsulated biological materials, and need to be produced on site by trained personnel.
