This was a blog about the finalization of a project at University: Creating an interactive game from sketch.
As this project has come to an end, I'll now just use it to spread my little knowledge about, well everything I know and everything which bothers me atm. SCIENCE, TEC-STUFF, ART,...
A beautifully animated description of what we know about the creation of the Universe, so far. We can see most of the how, though who knows how long this can last. Does the universe build in enough time for the beings that study it, to reveal why it happened? We’ll see I guess. :D
…because the colour orange was named after the fruit. Until the late 15th century the colour existed in Europe but did not have an own name. When oranges were brought back from Asia thier sanskrit name naranga was brought with them (compare: orange in Spanish: naranja). The name gradually changed to orange in e.g. English and German.

Based on the new PLOSone paper that I posted about earlier - for those who haven’t seen, there is a new study that looks at how chickens walk differently when they have a long artificial tail strapped to their butts. The paper comes with a lovely little video of the control and experimental chickens walking. A regular chicken’s locomotion is more knee-driven, while the posterior weight of an artificial tail makes the animal walk with a hip-driven gait instead.
This study has obvious implications for how non-avian theropods walked, so I could not resist doing a quick (1 hour or so) animation of a dromaeosaur loosely based on Deinonychus doing the dino-walk.
