Questions:How easy is it for people to stay at the outdoor movie area? How do I balance between the various reasons for coming?
My answer for that is to provide the option for different levels of engagement.
I refer to readings and credit the thought process of John Falk, in his theory of 5 Different Kinds of User Experience. Based on his almost 40 Read more →
World’s First Covert Communications System with Camouflage Guaranteed
Sometimes encrypting messages isn’t enough, and the very act of sending them must be hidden as well. Now physicists have discovered how to camouflage messages and guarantee that they remain hidden.
The world of cryptography has undergone a quiet revolution in recent years. That’s largely because of the advent of techniques that Read more →
Mantis shrimps are known as aggressive animals. They have a pair of legs at the front used to catch their prey, but 40 times faster than the preying mantis. They can pack a punch like a 0.22 calibre bullet and can break aquarium glass. However, a University of Queensland study of mantis shrimp discovered a new form of light communication employed by the shrimps.

Countless species have evolved to create their own light. Deep under the sea, creatures make their own light – Bioluminescence.
For animals that are unable to produce their own bioluminescence, they harness bacteria that allows them to. These spectral animals do not glow in the dark to see where they are going, they use light to communicate. Flashes of light are used to Read more →
Cephalopods are a classification of sea animals that consist of octopus, squids and cuttlefishes. These sea creatures are known to be deaf. How do they communicate with one another?
Cephalopods – Squids, Octopus and Cuttlefishes are known for their Camouflaging
Octopus and cuttlefish can change their skin texture. Only animal known to have fine control over its skin texture (Bumpiness) They match Read more →
Non-verbal communication of sharks:
Great White Sharks were killed with the encounter with an orca(killer whale).
The sharks vanished from the area during feeding season. The smell of another dead shark causes a panic attack in the other sharks. It could be speculated that the sharks sensed the scent of the dead shark as a signal to avoid their predators.
Interesting ways that animals Read more →
While swimming, I realized that communication underwater was very similar to the communication faced by deaf people. We are unable to hear what the other party wants to say. This led me to look at how divers do it underwater.
Based on the research and talking to a few friends who dive, it seems that they also use hand signals to communicate with Read more →
I bought some DIY jewelry parts and practice to assemble them into wearable pieces. The problems I found out during the process are
1, The details of the jewelry, i.e. links, thickness of the chain, size of the lobster claps, affect the overall look as well as the comfort of the user much more than I expected
2, The design is limited Read more →
