PicLens; Awesome Photo Viewer Add-On for Firefox

 Site Images Piclens-Header
This has to be one of the coolest add-ons for Firefox. With this installed, visit a Flickr site. You’ll see a little “play” button appear when you hover over an image. Hit “play” and interact to your heart’s content! 🙂

If you don’t have a Flickr page to go to, you can always use mine. 🙂

Nice find, DT!

Bowed Piano Ensemble

 Images  Programs Morning Features 2008 Feb Bowedpiano300
Can we make playing the piano anymore complicated? Apparently so.

To get a sense of what the bowed piano is, imagine a grand piano with the lid lifted off. Ten musicians crowd around, leaning over the innards of the instrument, like a team of surgeons performing an operation.

The primary sound is produced by a bow of nylon fish-line, which is rosined, and that’s just threaded under the piano string and across it. There’s another kind of bow, which is a stick of wood which has horse hair affixed to it, and that’s rubbed against the strings to produce a short, percussive sound.

It’s awesome to see a lens with its own sighting scope. Can you find the SLR camera in the brochure page? 🙂

My Three Parents

 Assets Resources 2008 02 Clonedcells
Talk about taking that threesome to a whole new level.

In three to five years, a baby will be born with two genetic mothers and one father. This could prove to be a boon for polyamorous families of the future who want to have children with more than two parents. A team of British researchers working with embryos have now perfected the three-parent babymaking technique.

Folding Bike Wheels

I can imagine this being handy for bike couriers in the city or commuters who want to stow their bike in a luggage compartment during the train portion of their commute.

I’m betting this will be pretty expensive initially.
