Newell's Teapot
A lot of people have seen this object without knowing it in animation films, videogames and screensavers, because also is an object that appears as basic in almost all the tools of 3D modeling (3D Studio Max, POV-Ray, AutoCAD, etc). Even there are functions to create this teapot in a lot of libraries of graphic programming, this is due to that, like the Lena's photo, this 3D model of a teapot, has been converted in the standard of reference in a lot of scientific papers of 3D graphics. Don't left of read the rest of "The Newell's teapot"

Lena Soderberg
A photo has been converted in the standard of reference in the computer sciences. Over this have been applied, from the years 70, a big quantity of algorithms of graphic computing, compression and artificial intelligence. Enter into "The photo of Lena Söderberg"

de-fragmentation
In the computer science, sometimes, appears false beliefs due to the ignorance of that really occurs in the machine. This time I'm going to demystify some of this old beliefs, which say that the hard disk can't be fragmented when we run a Linux based operating system. Read all about of "What is fragmentation and the old myth of the fragmentation in Linux"

Swarm robots, Kilobot
The previous post was about robots with body inspired by animals, so that in this I'm going to talk about robots with intelligence inspired in the nature. This are a lot of more interesting, because its programming, unlike to the robots of the prior post, is more related with the artificial intelligence than with the physics. Finish reading "Robots with intelligence inspired by animals"

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.

SSD vs HDD
Are you thinking in buy a storage device and are you are doubting between a solid state disk (SSD) and a hard disk drive (HDD)? Do you want know the advantages and disadvantages of each technology? Follow reading "SSD vs HDD: comparison of technologies"
