South Korea Building World  s First  Invisible
Home | Building
The South Korean government has just approved the plans to build an invisible tower outside of Seoul near the Incheon International Airport. Yes, near the airport, where planes will be landing and taking off on a daily basis. It doesn’t seem like the best location for an invisible tower. The building was designed by GDS Architects of Pasadena, California, and works by using cameras to capture real-time views from behind the building, then display them on the front using a wall of LEDs.
"Through digital processing, images will be scaled, rotated and merged to create a seamless panoramic image that appears on the LED rows to create the illusion of invisibility. In essence, whatever is going on behind the building will be projected onto the front of the building."

Auto-Brewery Syndrome:A Man's Gut Brews Its Own Beer and Gets Him Drunk When He Eats Carbs

AutoBrewery Syndrome  A Man s Gut Brews Its Own Beer and Gets Him Drunk When He Eats
Gear | News
A 61-year-old man found himself getting drunk without ever drinking alcohol because he had brewer's yeast in his gut. Basically, whenever he ate any carbs, the man's intestinal tract would start turning that into beer and make him drunk. He had a brewery in his belly. The man had been recorded with a 0.37 BAC level without drinking at all, or almost five times the legal limit for driving in Texas.
The NPR explains:
The patient had an infection with Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Cordell says. So when he ate or drank a bunch of starch — a bagel, pasta or even a soda — the yeast fermented the sugars into ethanol, and he would get drunk. Essentially, he was brewing beer in his own gut. Cordell and McCarthy reported the case of "auto-brewery syndrome" a few months ago in the International Journal of Clinical Medicine.

Pressy Kickstarter project raises over 500 000
Gear | Projects
The next big project from crowd-funded website Kickstarter is Pressy. This is a button that fits into the 3.5mm earphone jack on an Android phone and can be set-up to do a number of things with your handset like toggle Wi-Fi on and off, act as the shutter for the camera, or start an audio recording. Anything your phone can do can be set up to run using Pressy. The very first day, the project received twice the $40,000 it was seeking and is now up to more than $500,000 in funding. What will the company do with all of this money? For one thing, they are creating a push-to-talk system they call Pressy-to-talk. Just hold your Pressy button and talk. The other party will hear you and can communicate with you as long as they too have a Pressy button. Expected to come to market in March 2014. The lowest price funding option still remaining that comes with a Pressy is $17, which includes a Pressy and free access to the corresponding app.
