This is a short clip intended for use at the KAUST SIGGRAPH booth in a series of video loops played during the convention. 62,000+ pixels wide, this image can be viewed in full resolution on the 40 Gigapixel tiled display wall at KAUST Visualization Laboratory. It is also annotated with sound clips that describe specific areas of the dataset as you bring them into view.

Models and Simulations of a Nanosphere: KCC1

submitted by: apryl
Dr. Madhu Srinivasan, CG Developer at KAUST Visualization Laboratory generated 3D models and animations to visually simulate the first nanoparticle developed by KAUST Catalysis Center. KCC1 is the first Nanoparticle developed by KAUST Catalysis Center. Director of KAUST Catalysis Center, Dr. Jean-Marie Basset, Senior Research Scientist at KCC, Dr. Vivek Polshettiwar, and Dr. Dongkyu Cha of the Advanced Nanofabrication Imaging & Characterization Core Laboratory discuss the details of...

Music and Your Brain

submitted by: apryl
KAUST Professor Pierre Magistretti, Dean of the Chemical, Life Sciences and Engineering (CLSE) Division discusses an experimental study of neural activity using electro-physical recordings of pianists with one objective to find patterns or clues to better understand synchrony and creativity. For the KAUST Winter Enrichment Program Class, Lab to Film: Story-telling in Science we created this video to test the student equipment and discover any technical challenges that participants would...

MWV Episode 72 - Jonathan Eisen - Evolvability, the Built Environment and Open Science

submitted by: MicrobeWorld
Jonathan Eisen is an evolutionary biologist, currently working at University of California, Davis and is the academic editor-in-chief of the open-access journal PLoS Biology. On this episode, Jonathan talks about "evolvability," the probability that organisms can invent new functions. To do this, he has been using genome data in conjunction with experimental information to try and understand the mechanisms by which new functions have originated. Another area of interest for Eisen is the...

Meet Ro-bat, Brown University's Robotic Bat Wing

submitted by: nsf
The strong, flapping flight of bats offers great possibilities for the design of small aircraft, among many other applications. By building a robotic bat wing, Brown University researchers have uncovered flight secrets of real bats. Bat wing project leader and NSF Graduate Research Fellow Joseph Bahlman says the faux flapper generates data that could never be collected directly from live animals, and may lead to improved aircraft efficiency and help in the design of small flapping aircraft.
