The Carnival of The Random

Carnegie Mellon releases a time machine...sort of.

killscreendaily:

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon have released a virtual time machine —  for pictures.  It’s a super-advanced time-lapse photo system that allows high resolution as well as viewing changes over time such as plants in boom.

“With GigaPan Time Machine, you can simultaneously explore space and time at extremely high resolutions,” said Illah Nourbakhsh, associate professor of robotics and head of the CREATE Lab. “Science has always been about narrowing your point of view — seeing a particular experiment or observation that you think might provide insight. But this system enables what we call exhaustive science, capturing huge amounts of data that can be explored in amazing ways.”

You can try it out here.

This is one of the reasons Pittsburgh is secretly cool. Also, we have a DALEK and R2, at the Carnegie Science Center.
