Eidos mask will turn you into a hereo


A group of students at the Royal College of Art in London have created two masks that can give you superhuman sight and hearing.

The first prototype covers the wearer’s ears, mouth and nose and uses a directional microphone to give him the ability to hear an isolated sound in a noisy environment.


Imagine that you could target a person in a crowd and clearly hear his words without the surrounding noise.

The team behind project Eidos – Tim Bouckley, Millie Clive-Smith, Mi Eun Kim and Yuta Sugawara – see many possible applications of this technology.

The other prototype is worn over one’s eyes.

A camera captures video and sends it to a computer, which can apply a set of effects to it in real-time and send it back to the wearer.

For example, one could use the visual mask it to analyze movement and technique in sports. In another example, concert-goers could use the hearing mask to focus on a certain performer at a concert.

    This design is wicked! You most certainly know how to keep a
    reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was
    almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.

    ..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than
    that, how you presented it. Too cool!

    If you watch CSI- an award-winning TV-series in America, you will appreciate and you will probably be thrilled on how investigations are done. You will also notice that they give importance even the smallest details. You can also apply the same concept when you want to enhance your skills in private investigation.To get a good private investigation agency, it necessary to carry out a lot of investigation. You must ensure that the agency you intend to hire has the necessary resources. One of the resources a private investigation agency must posses is the right set of investigators. These people provide the necessary information on cases.One activity that takes up most private investigators’ time is surveillance. They keep watch on situations for as long as they can make sense out of the situation and come up with a solution. Some people might see consistent vigilance as waste of time but it is not waste of time. It is real business.Going down memory lane, private investigation is a job that has thrived for a long time. Before governments decided to co-opt their officials into peacekeeping. Some individuals were into the business of gathering information and solving criminal cases. The list of specialization in private investigation is inexhaustible. If you are interested in going for private investigation training, it is advisable to be sure of the type of investigation you want to go into. This is because you’ll be more focused if you are specialized in an area. One good thing about private investigation is that investigators go in search of details without revealing their source. Sometimes they do not leave any form of trace so that they do not get trailed. This is to say to a certain level, the job is safe. One essential tool that every private investigator needs is camera. It is used to capture the picture of people and scenes. It can also be used to get documents that could be vital to a case. For an effective job, it is essential to get a digital camera. Digital cameras are good because they can zoom in on anything from a distance and they are very clear. Note taking is one of the features of private investigation. It is a process where private investigators scribble information they get about certain cases. Scribbling down of information is very good for reference purposes.
