Google Maps Street View Go Underwater

Posted in Science by Tam Yue on March 8th, 2014

Catlin Seaview Survey teamIt will come as no shock to anyone to hear that the world’s coral reefs are in a state of decline. A company in Austrailia called Catlin Seaview Survey is going around the world documenting coral reefs with a 360-degree panoramic SVII camera highlighting what reefs look like now compared to what they will look like in a few years.

What does this have to do with Google Maps Street View? Well, Catlin Seaview Survey is going to take its camera underwater along the coast in Australia from Manly to Bronte. From there they will team up with Google so we can all have a look under the water in Australia. They hope to use the images for scientific research as well as educating us about the beautiful underwater world that lives along their coastline.

DIY uWatch: the scientific calculator wristwatch
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a scientific calculator wristwatch. They haven’t been around for about 20 years or so. Dave Jones remembers them well: “Back in 1987 or so I got a Casio CFX-400 scientific calculator watch, and I wore that watch to death for 10 years until the band support on the case broke. The CFX-400 was the best, and last scientific calculator watch ever sold.”

So if you’re like Dave, and has missed the calculator watch, there’s good news. He’s revived the scientific calculator wristwatch as a DIY project. His uWatch features a roomy LCD that can display 16 characters across, two lines deep, and it can handle all your fancy RPN/Algebraic scientific needs. You’ll need at least a bit of technical know-how to pull it off, but in the end you’ll have an awesome geek wristwatch that’ll catch the eye of lady nerds.
