Map of Internet
Internet is formed by a tangle of cables and routers. These routers, have the mission of route the information through that spider web in order to arrive to its destiny, although really Internet is organized in a hierarchy of routers that goes from the router of our house to the router that send the data of a entire country.

End Task
When we shutdown the computer, the operating system send a message to all the applications to end them. If some don't finalize, in the case of Windows XP, appears a window with a progress bar that advance slowly and makes us wait with the message "Ending Program". A better option, is press in "End Now", because the timeout that shows, simply is for leave the time pass, not for do something. Read the rest of the post if you want to know how shutdown faster your computer. Follow reading "Shutting down Windows and the halting problem"

Bionic eye
Through the optical nerves, our eyes are connected to the visual cortex or cortex V1 located in the back part of the brain. If we decode the way in that the retinas of our eyes encode the information and how is interpreted after by the brain, we could connect a cable on the rear part of the head of a person to recreate in the brain an alternative reality. This seems take it from the script of Matrix, have already done to return the vision the blinds. Don't miss the rest of "The bionic eye"

Bird robot
There are a lot of robots that simulate the behavior and imitate the form, structure and movements of some animals. The engineers copy them because they know that the evolution had have millions of years to get solutions that gives the maximum performance with the minimum energy expenditure, so reproduce the nature allow us resolve problems that in otherwise hardly we could resolve.

Robot con Kinect
In one of the posts where I explained the how Kinect works, I said that wouldn't be strange that it will be use to build robots. Now are emerging the first robotic machines that someday will rebel and will begin to kill humans. Here I talk about some of them. Enter into "Robots, Kinect and the SLAM problem"
