I just finished watching Klaus on Netflix, It's my new favorite Christmas movie! So well made and interesting how they take a tired concept for such a holiday's film and breathe new life into it!
I must say, I really want the studio to work on a Team Fortress movie next! You'll know why when you watch the first half of the film! The unique artstyle and drab pallette of colour with the rivalry between two clans in the first half of the film really struck me as an amazing start to what could only be an amazing TF2 animated film adaptation!
A multinational team, led by researchers at Hong Kong’s City University, has developed a mechanism that can transport droplets of liquid on a hard surface at high speed and against gravity—even uphill, which is a first. The researchers devised a surface that’s superamphiphobic, or water- and oil-repellent, according to the Engineer, an online publication. When drops of water hit its surface, they immediately spread out, retracted and rebounded from the surface. As a result, electrons separate from the droplets and create a negative charge on the surface, the team reports. The density of the surface charge can be gradually changed to form a gradient by varying the height from which the droplets fall. Then, when one droplet is placed on the surface, the charged gradient becomes a driving force, allowing the droplet to self-propel toward the direction of the higher charge density. Once created, the Engineer says, the gradient can be easily changed, so the droplet’s motion can be programmed along a desired pathway. The technique doesn’t require a flat or rigid surface, and it can transport liquids with low surface tension and low dielectric constant, which includes blood and salt solutions. The team suggests that its technique could be applied to microfluidic lab-on-a-chip devices, or in engineering applications that use fluid dynamics. #DefyingGravity#mechanicalengineering#Followfirstlook#engineersmaketheworldwork#future#wateragainstgravity#china#HongKong#advancement#science#followfirstlook#CSEE#ASEE#theEngineer#engineeringsociety#fluiddynamics#scienceiscool#trendsandbreakthroughs
