The Tempescope is an Ambient Weather Device that Simulates the Forecast on Your Desktop

by Christopher Jobson
Cooper Griggs

Cuz opening the drapes would be too much work I suppose. Still, neat idea.

temp-1

The Tempescope is a novel device designed by Ken Kawamoto that displays the upcoming forecast by simulating weather conditions inside a small translucent box. The device is capable of downloading information about upcoming weather off the internet, which it then translates into a variety of modes to replicate sunshine, clouds, rain, and even lighting. Kawamoto made an early version of the device available as a free open-source project called OpenTempescope so you can try building your own, but a consumer version is planned for Kickstarter later this year. If you liked this, don’t miss The Cloud. (via Sixpenceee)

On March 5, 2000, Inés Ramírez Pérez of Rio de Talea, Mexico,...



On March 5, 2000, Inés Ramírez Pérez of Rio de Talea, Mexico, became the first woman known to have survived a self-inflicted cesarean section. When the case study detailing her son’s birth, Self-inflicted cesarean section with maternal and fetal survival, was published in the March 2004 issue of the International Journal of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, the mother of eight quickly became an international celebrity. 

Inés Ramírez Perez was alone in her rural cabin and felt labor begin midday. Her husband, who had assisted in six of her previous births, was drinking at a cantina. The town of Río de Talea, located in San Lorenzo Texmelúcan in the state of Oaxaca, had only one phone at the time. After twelve hours in labor and gripped with terror that this baby would suffer the same obstructed labor and death as her previous baby, Ramírez decided that she needed to bring him into the world as quickly as she could. 

Ramírez sent her eight year old son, Benito, to buy a kitchen knife at a shop, as the knife the family used wasn’t sharp enough. After ingesting two cups of mezcal (alcohol made from the maguey plant), Ramírez held the knife by the blade instead of the handle and used her index finger and thumb to apply pressure. [x]

Radically Diverse Australian Fungi Photographed by Steve Axford

by Christopher Jobson

mush-1

Photographer Steve Axford (previously) continues his quest to document some of the world’s most obscure fungi found in locations around Australia. Axford lives and works in the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales in Australia where he often has to travel no further than his own back yard to make some of the discoveries you see here. The forms of fungi, slime molds, and lichens he prefers to document seem to have no limit in their diverse characteristics. Axford explained when we first featured his work last year that he suspects many of the tropical species he stumbles onto are often completely undocumented. You can follow more of Axford’s discoveries on Flickr and SmugMug.
