New high-speed 3-D microscope -- SCAPE -- gives deeper view of living things

SCAPE, a new microscope that images living things in 3-D at very high speeds, has been developed by engineers. The microscope uses a simple, single-objective imaging geometry that requires no sample mounting or translation, making it possible to image freely moving living samples. Show More Summary

Sleek Minimalist Design Molding Uncluttered Family Life

Showcasing a grey geometry that allows the interiors to be private, the K2 House presents a blissful minimalist design imagined by Stuttgard-based studio Bottega + Ehrhardt Architekten. Planning and building this modern family home included creating an intimate collection of interior space that elongate outdoors via large sliding glass doors. Show More Summary

Two lecture series on absolute geometry

Absolute geometry is the attempt to develop algebraic geometry over the elusive field with one element $\mathbb{F}_1$. The idea being that the set of all prime numbers is just too large for $\mathbf{Spec}(\mathbb{Z})$ to be a terminal object (as it is in the category of schemes). Show More Summary

What Common Core wants kindergartners to do: Read, write, do geometry

Those are some of the Common Core State Standards for kindergartners. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.K.4 Read emergent-reader texts with purpose and understanding. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.K.5 With guidance and support from adults, respond to questions and suggestions from peers and add details to strengthen writing as needed. Show More Summary

When Nature And Geometry Collide, These Photos Get Surreal

A photographer warps normal scenes to make them beautifully bizarre. David Copithorne takes photos of classic subjects, mountains, beaches, street scenes, and then edits them to add floating geometric shapes which reflect the images around them, or twisting them into fractals-like forms.

One Of My Favorite Mobile Games Is Now One Of My Favorite Steam Games

Since late 2013, Robert Topala's Geometry Dash has been the first gaming app I load on any new iDevice I come across. Now the devilish rhythm platformer will be the first game I load on new gaming PCs as well. Read more...

Peculiar Radial Mill from Car Parts

Whether 3D printer, lasercutter, or mill, most CNC machines use human-friendly, square-angle Cartesian geometry. This intriguing concept mill instead uses radial axes where motion is derived from scrap Chevy flywheels. It may look and feel weird at first, but it works – sort of. Cartesian axes are intuitive.

Simone de Gale harnessed the golden spiral ratio to design a spherical gallery in London, UK

Simone de Gale Architects has created the conceptual design for a striking spherical art gallery in the heart of the City of London. Inspired by the concept of "pure geometry", they took cues from Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man as well as the Logarithmic

A noncommutative moduli space

Supernatural numbers also appear in noncommutative geometry via James Glimm’s characterisation of a class of simple $C^$-algebras, the UHF-algebras. A uniformly hyperfine (or, UHF) algebra $A$ is a $C^$-algebra that can be written as...Show More Summary

Geometric Design: Working With 4 and 8

What You'll Be Creating Geometry with the numbers 4 and 8 means we'll be constructing squares, octagons, octagrams and a few patterns based on them. Let me first quickly define a couple of new words: Words ending in -gon mean: x-sided shape. Show More Summary
