In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the world has rushed to deploy infrared thermal imaging cameras (also known as infrared radiometers) to measure people’s temperature and the technology has become big business. Since the pandemic began, thermal cameras have been deployed in areas of high-density foot traffic such as airports, shopping centers, nursing homes, factories, office buildings, schools, even hairdressers. This is raising questions about their safety and accuracy. And while the accuracy of these devices depends on how they are used, we can say for certain that the technology poses no harm to people and is perfectly safe.

Something that would’ve been science fiction a decade ago is now generally affordable.You know, like the DJI Mavic Air.This drone lets mere mortals have access to what’s basically professional cinematography equipment.And while this classy piece of tech usually doesn’t come cheap, hold onto your hats, because this DJI Mavic Air Kit is discounted by almost $150 — making it a sweet $750.Well, it’s a foldable drone with a 4K camera.A drone that’s both easy to use, but stuffed with professional features.
NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) is currently in orbit around the red planet and is snapping photos of its surface using an instrument called the High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE).Recently, HiRISE imaged not just one but both of NASA’s missions which are on the planet right now.First up, HiRISE took the image above showing the most detailed aerial view yet of the InSight lander.The greenish speck in the middle of the image is the landing site in the Elysium Planitia region, and you can see the two circular panels that the lander uses to collect solar power.Just below the lander, you can see the dome of the heat shield covering the seismometer which is listening out for marsquakes.About 373 miles (600 kilometers) away from InSight, the Curiosity rover is exploring, as you can see in the images above.
At an event in LA yesterday the UHD Alliance, who is behind the standards for UHD Blu-Rays, a group of studios, including Warner Bros, and the tv maker Vizio, announced a plan to make your TV stop looking like shit.A new Filmmaker mode will be available in TVs from Vizio starting in 2020 and this mode should eradicate that obnoxious soap opera effect.It will also do a better job of calibrating the color, brightness, and contrast of the screen so it looks more like what the filmmaker sees when they’re creating the movies and shows you watch.Yet calibration is an art if you don’t have thousands of dollars of tools and it can be time-consuming.You adjust a single setting on your TV and your £500 TV is now taking it’s best shot at replicating the £30,000 editing monitors filmmakers use.The mode itself is based on a new series of standards UHDA has published (we’ve reached out for a copy and will update when we learn more).
NASA's Curiosity rover loves to send selfies and close-up looks at fascinating rocks and even its own hole-y wheels.But sometimes it gets to pose for a portrait from far, far away.Conditions were just right at the end of May for NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) spacecraft to capture a snapshot of Curiosity working away in an area called Woodland Bay, part of the intriguing "clay-bearing unit."The enhanced-color image comes from the MRO's High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera, which is operated by the University of Arizona in Tucson.If you're having trouble spotting the rover, check out NASA's cropped version of the image that highlights its location.A close look at the rover shows a bright spot in the upper left-hand corner.
Historical documents considered lost to the ravages of time—like crumbling parchment thousands of years old or medieval manuscripts whose ink long ago faded away—are being given a new life thanks to a technology known as multispectral imaging.“So this was like a first contact workshop to show them in a hands-on way what the tech could do.”What multispectral imaging can do in some cases has been impressive.Multispectral systems, such as MegaVision’s EV package, take advantage of this property and use high-resolution 50-megapixel sensors and computer-controlled cameras with LED lighting systems to take photographs in the ultraviolet, infrared, and visible spectra, creating dozens of images of a fragment in different reflective wavelengths.The texts include the earliest copies of books from the Torah and the Old Testament.But deciphering all the parchment was nearly impossible, primarily because many of the writings in Greek, Aramaic, and palaeo-Hebrew had lost the visible ink over the centuries or had turned black because of exposure to the elements.
Sometime between September 2016 and February of this year there was a big blast on Mars that appears to have painted the surface of the red planet with other hues as well.The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) photographed the newly formed crater in April and the image was shared online earlier this month.Mars is probably hit by chunks of asteroids and other debris on a regular basis, given its thin atmosphere and proximity to the asteroid belt, but this collision was particularly impressive."This is a whopper of an impact, as new craters go -- diameter is 16 m (52 feet)," Peter Grindrod, planetary sciences research leader for the UK Natural History Museum, wrote on Twitter.Before and after photos of the region show just how much damage was done by the meteor that smacked our planetary neighbor."What makes this stand out is the darker material exposed beneath the reddish dust," writes the team of the MRO's HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment), dubbed the most powerful camera ever sent to another planet.
Using its High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE), the spacecraft photographed the new feature on 17 April 2019 from an altitude of 255 kilometres (158 miles), according to a HiRise press release.The crater is located in the Valles Marineris region near the equator, and it formed at some point between September 2016 and February 2019.We can’t yet monitor the entire Martian surface at shorter intervals, hence the uncertainty as to when it formed.The HiRise release described the new photo as a “work of art,” saying “the darker material exposed beneath the reddish dust” is what makes this particular crater stand out.The bluish areas in the false-colour image above show areas in which the red surface material was most disrupted by the impact.HiRISE team member and University of Arizona staff scientist Veronica Bray told that the crater is about 15 to 16 metres (49 to 53 feet) wide.
A brand new impact crater has been discovered on the Red Planet Mars, exposing a 'darker material' underneath the reddish dust covering Mars' surface which has scientists stumped.The crater is a result of an asteroid hitting Mars sometime within the past three years.It's unclear exactly when the impact occurred, but the best guess is that the impact crater formed between September 2016 and February 2019.The Red Planet was hit by an asteroid sometime within the past three years and the resulting crater has exposed a "darker material" underneath Mars' reddish dust that is currently perplexing scientists.The image was captured by the High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on April 17, 2019.The black-and-blue area on the Martian landscape highlights the area that was hit.
Take a trip to Mars with a new video from NASA!This animation shows a fly-over of Mount Sharp, the location the Curiosity rover is currently exploring.It also shows the path that Curiosity will take over the next few years as it wends its way up the mountain to learn more about the geology and history of the planet.The map was created using data from an orbiting spacecraft, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO).The MRO carries a suite of instruments including the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE), Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM), and the Context Camera (CTX), which all contributed information that allowed the scientists to build a 3D model of this area of the surface of Mars.Curiosity is currently in an area called the clay-bearing unit, named that as scientists believe there are plentiful clay minerals to be found in the area.
Researchers from Rochester Institute of Technology and Seneca Park Zoo are developing a virtual reality gaming environment that will let zoogoers experience a Madagascar rainforest ecosystem.They recently journeyed to the Centre ValBio field station in Ranomafana National Park on a trip that laid the groundwork for creating accurate 3D models of the exotic Madagascar wildlife and habitat.RIT Professor Anthony Vodacek and Seneca Park Zoo Society Director of Programming and Conservation Action Tom Snyder used remote sensing equipment to examine animals including comet moths, scorpions, katydids and other large insects.The goal is to create the virtual reality gaming environment in the next one to two years.The zoo is currently beta testing a game that simulates the Genesee River ecosystem.Visitors can play as an otter, a farmer, a homeowner or a scientist to learn about how their actions impact the environment.
