Aerial Perspective

The mountains in the horizon on Earth, always look slightly bluish or hazy. On Mars, they look hazy and red, on other planets, differing colours, yet still hazy. The reasons for this are small particles in the air between the eye and the mountains. The farther the mountains, the hazier they look.

On Earth, its small water and dust particles in the air. The light refraction from the water particles, and from the oxygen in the air, tends to shift the spectrum towards blue. On Mars, its predominately a methane mix that shifts the light towards red. The atmosphere a given world has, directly affects how the colours shift.

Using UAVs to Ramp up Development of Aerial Sensor Webs
In concept it is quite brilliant – using a small, cheap, practically 3D printable unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to greatly accelerate the development of aerial sensors, by allowing them to quickly and easily be fitted to the UAV, and launched into the air without a moment's hesitation. Something needs tweaking, the small plane is landed, the sensor detached, tweaked, reattached and the whole thing lifts again.

Endgame: Singularity is a single player game, developed to give a little taste of the perspective of a singularity event from the perspective of the emerging, embryonic AI. It skips over more than a few steps on its way out, but is still a unique perspective on the singularity, worthy of a look.

Book Quotes: Refusing to See - AI Rights
Idoru is, essentially, one long piece on the struggle to understand the quest for robot rights ? or in this case, the rights of an AI itself, from an outsider?s perspective; from the perspective of one who refuses to accept the AI as other than a tool, despite all evidence to the contrary.

SUAVe: Redefining Archaeology With Aerial AI
The SUAVE system is a semi-autonomous UAV, the brainchild of an archaeologist and an engineer. It flies over any dig site, continually taking pictures to convert into a 3D model, reducing the time taken to map a site from painstaking 2-3 years to a single month or less.

Why do a 3D mud?
A ten year old article, useful from a historical perspective, on one company?s justifications for first creating three dimensional gameworlds. At the time, there was a lot of industry resistance to the idea. So to it may be, for any other paradigm shifting idea which you plan perhaps, to launch.

This book demonstrates how bio-inspiration can lead to fully autonomous flying robots without relying on external aids. Most existing aerial robots fly in open skies, far from obstacles, and rely on external beacons ? mainly GPS ? to localise and navigate. However, these robots are not able to fly at low altitude or in confined environments, and yet this poses absolutely no difficulty to insects. Indeed, flying insects display efficient flight control capabilities in complex environments despite their limited weight and relatively tiny brain size.

Changing Self Perspective with VR
A key set of experiments building on the rubber hand illusion, have opened the floodgates for full sensory immersion - proving that the brain will identify with the body it perceives itself to be in, not necessarily the body it is housed in.
