Accessories for HTC Vive Cosmos - Immersive Display
Following the Vive and Vive Pro headset, the Vive Cosmos accessories aims to stand out for its comfort and ease of use. Like an Oculus Rift S, it is equipped with an inside-out motion detection system, i.e. it does not need external sensors to locate itself in space and can detect the precise position of its controllers itself thanks to its 6 integrated cameras, unlike the previous VR Vive and Vive Pro headsets which require at least two Lighthouse beacons to operate. This significantly simplifies installation and commissioning. HTC obviously intends to offer even better image quality thanks in particular to an increase in display definition combined with new, brighter lenses.
 

Secure position on the head

First of all, it is indeed the ergonomics and comfort that must be addressed. The Cosmos is equipped with a new roll bar directly inspired by the PlayStation VR roll bar. It rests on the top of the forehead and extends to the base of the skull, so as to better distribute the masses and avoid as much as possible to feel the pressure of the helmet on the face.
 

Precision of the tracking system

As far as motion detection is concerned, since this is what interests us more particularly with this headset, it must be noted that if there is a loss of precision compared to detection via the Lighthouse beacons, we could not notice it during this first test carried out in a very bright room. The Vive Cosmos reacts quickly, in the same way as a Rift S could. Our test with the dance game Audio Trip - which is very reminiscent of Beat Saber - was convincing. It will now be necessary to check if the helmet is not too painful in a darker environment.
 

Highly luminous controllers

A quick word about the game controllers to finish, which we found comfortable and quite ergonomic, although a little heavy. The two integrated AA batteries probably have something to do with it, as does the large white illuminated ring to improve the accuracy of detection by the device. HTC finally uses analog sticks on these new controllers, and if they can't boast of finger detection like the Valve Index controllers, they are at least catching up with the competition.

El Ra Ma

Learning from Ancient Egyptian Amon Ra, Cosmos and Kids about Democracy.

Supreme God and Sound Frequency

by Nataša Pantović Nuit

Meditating on the shores of Mediterranean, paying respect to Silence, to Nothing in all its forms, during the morning of the Equinox, during the Full Moon, I was experiencing the mystical names of .

circle triangle square elements

Within the Christian worlds we often use Amin / Alleluia, Buddhists deeply appreciate the sound and frequency of Aum, the ancient Egyptians remind us that the mystical name of God is Amon Ra. Ra or Ta as the sound of the supreme male quality and Ma as the sound of the supreme female quality, these two combining within the name of the Hindhu’s supreme God B-Ra-Ma, or Be Ra & Ma. Could it that simple? Perhaps not, but do your-own research further…

Flexible Belts: "Cosmos" by Carl Sagan
Cosmos - Carl Sagan



(Original Review, 1980-11-17)




A lot of talk has been going on about the flaws in Carl Sagan's COSMOS series. These flaws center on either Sagan's unusual speaking style and acting(?) abilities, or the show's contents. I certainly agree that he looks stupid when displaying the "awed" look; however, the complaints about the content of his shows are not justified. Yes, he is short on reasons and long on visual effects, and, yes, he talks as if the viewer did not know the obvious. What we are all forgetting is this: the average person doesn't know what we would consider "obvious". We should realize that Carl Sagan has his work cut out for him making science digestible for the average person.

The Portable Cosmos by Alexander Jones
A Portable Cosmos: Revealing the Antikythera Mechanism, Scientific Wonder of the Ancient World - Alexander Jones

TITLE:  The Portable Cosmos:  Revealing the Antikythera Mechanism, Scientific Wonder of the Ancient World

 

AUTHOR:  Alexander Jones

 

DATE PUBLISHED:  2017

 

FORMAT:  Hardcover

 

ISBN-13:  9780199739349

Book Description:

 

"From the Dead Sea Scrolls to the Terracotta Army, ancient artifacts have long fascinated the modern world. However, the importance of some discoveries is not always immediately understood. This was the case in 1901 when sponge divers retrieved a lump of corroded bronze from a shipwreck at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea near the Greek island of Antikythera. Little did the divers know they had found the oldest known analog computer in the world, an astonishing device that once simulated the motions of the stars and planets as they were understood by ancient Greek astronomers. Its remains now consist of 82 fragments, many of them containing gears and plates engraved with Greek words, that scientists and scholars have pieced back together through painstaking inspection and deduction, aided by radiographic tools and surface imaging. More than a century after its discovery, many of the secrets locked in this mysterious device can now be revealed.

In addition to chronicling the unlikely discovery of the Antikythera Mechanism, author Alexander Jones takes readers through a discussion of how the device worked, how and for what purpose it was created, and why it was on a ship that wrecked off the Greek coast around 60 BC. What the Mechanism has uncovered about Greco-Roman astronomy and scientific technology, and their place in Greek society, is truly amazing. The mechanical know-how that it embodied was more advanced than anything the Greeks were previously thought capable of, but the most recent research has revealed that its displays were designed so that an educated layman could understand the behavior of astronomical phenomena, and how intertwined they were with one's natural and social environment. It was at once a masterpiece of machinery as well as one of the first portable teaching devices. Written by a world-renowned expert on the Mechanism, A Portable Cosmos will fascinate all readers interested in ancient history, archaeology, and the history of science.

____________________________

 

The conglomerate of corroded and broken bronze pieces, eventually known as the  Antikythera Mechanism, were salvaged from a shipwreck in the early 1900s.  Initially, the fragments were studied without any certainty of what they were. By the end of that century it was confirmed that the metal device with its gears and advanced clockwork mecahnism was some kind of analog computer.  It was eventually determined that the mechanism predicted phases of the moon, planetary positions and even eclipses with great precision.

A Portable Cosmos provides a description of the discovery of the Antikythera mechanism, an extensive  desciption of the device itself and how it worked, as well as the ancient astronomy behind it.   Jones explores the mystery of the Antikythera mechanism in a no nonsense fashion and includes relevant diagrams and photographs where necessary.  The author does a thorough job of presenting numerous related topics such as the history of astronomy and astrology, calendrics and the mechanics of eclipses, as well as any ancient records of such a mechanism.  Cicero wrote about a planetarium that Archimedes used as a teaching tool, which may have been similar to the Antikythera mechanism.  The book is devided into thematic chapters, so if the technical aspects are too detailed, the reader can skip these chapters without missing out too much.  This book is scholarly and rather technical, but is none the less absorbing and very interesting.
