Happy Weekend:Flying Car, 3D Street Art, Facebook Messenger

In the last post we looked at the findings on the reproduction of eye visuals by scanning the brain. This week we will look at some other interesting stuffs:

This weeks puzzle:
  • While you sit on a chair, lift your right foot off the floor and rotate clockwise direction.
  • Now draw number six in the air with your right hand finger, while rotating the right foot.
See what happens, Your foot will rotate in the opposite direction. Don't worry this is because our brains are hard-wired to certain tasks as we don't need to perform such strange tasks. If you want to know about another phenomenon called "In-attentional Blindness" read this post.

Facebook messenger: 
You all know Facebook has introduced the messenger for mobile phones. Facebook has recently introduced the Facebook messenger for Desktop computers. You can download this from this link. Using this version you can chat with your friends without logging into Facebook.

Interesting Fact:
In 1961, Leonid Rogozov, 27, was the only surgeon in the Soviet Antarctic Expedition. During the expedition, he felt severe pain in the stomach and had a high fever. Rogozov examined himself and discovered that his appendix was inflamed and could burst at any time. With a local anesthesia, he operated himself to remove the appendix. An engineer and a meteorologist assisted surgery.

Flying Car:

For many decades, people around the world have imagined that, what it would be like if their vehicle could fly? Then they can not only avoid traffic but also can easily cross big rivers even if the rivers doesn't have bridges over them [definitely it will have traffic problems on the air :) ]. The Dutch PAL-V company has created a vehicle to turn your imagination into reality. The first series of their test flights were successful. They planned to market their vehicle by 2014.
