Natural-Born Cyborgs
19,99 € *

From Robocop to the Terminator to Eve 8, no image better captures our deepest fears about technology than the cyborg, the person who is both flesh and metal, brain and electronics. But philosopher and cognitive scientist Andy Clark sees it differently. Cyborgs, he writes, are not something to be feared--we already are cyborgs. In Natural-Born Cyborgs, Clark argues that what makes humans so different from other species is our capacity to fully incorporate tools and supporting cultural practices into our existence. Technology as simple as writing on a sketchpad, as familiar as Google or a cellular phone, and as potentially revolutionary as mind-extending neural implants--all exploit our brains' astonishingly plastic nature. Our minds are primed to seek out and incorporate non-biological resources, so that we actually think and feel through our best technologies. Drawing on his expertise in cognitive science, Clark demonstrates that our sense of self and of physical presence can be expanded to a remarkable extent, placing the long-existing telephone and the emerging technology of telepresence on the same continuum. He explores ways in which we have adapted our lives to make use of technology (the measurement of time, for example, has wrought enormous changes in human existence), as well as ways in which increasingly fluid technologies can adapt to individual users during normal use. Bio-technological unions, Clark argues, are evolving with a speed never seen before in history. As we enter an age of wearable computers, sensory augmentation, wireless devices, intelligent environments, thought-controlled prosthetics, and rapid-fire information search and retrieval, the linebetween the user and her tools grows thinner day by day. "This double whammy of plastic brains and increasingly responsive and well-fitted tools creates an unprecedented opportunity for ever-closer kinds of human-machine merger," he writes, arguing that such a merger is

Chemo-synthesis and Characterizations of Zn Dop...

The knowledge of physical properties of different materials for their possible applications in the daily life has always been a prime field of interest of the human civilization. The use of semiconductors has enhanced the quality of electronic devices and also reduced their cost and size. One possible alternative approach to improving electronics beyond what can be achieved by miniaturization is to incorporate the detection and manipulation of electron spin (spintronics). An emblematic method has been proposed to synthesize a zinc doped cobalt sulfide semiconductor to modify a conventional semiconductor by introducing a traces of magnetic transition metal to induce magnetic properties while retaining the semiconducting behaviour.

Water of Crystallization
34,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Water of crystallization is water that occurs in crystals but is not covalently bonded to a host molecule or ion. The term is archaic and predates modern structural inorganic chemistry, coming from an era when the relationships between stoichiometry and structure were poorly understood. Nonetheless, the concept is pervasive, and, when employed precisely, the term can be useful. Upon crystallization from water or moist solvents, many compounds incorporate water molecules in their crystalline frameworks. Often, in fact, the species of interest cannot be crystallized in the absence of water, even though no strong bonds to the "guest" water molecules may be apparent. Classically, "water of crystallization" refers to water that is found in a crystalline framework of a metal complex but that is not directly bonded to the metal ion.

Check Weigher

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A checkweigher is an automatic machine for checking the weight of packaged commodities. It is normally found at the offgoing end of a production process and is used to ensure that the weight of a pack of the commodity is within specified limits. Any packs that are outside the tolerance are taken out of line automatically. A checkweigher can weigh in excess of 500 items per minute. ( depending on carton size and accuracy requirements). Checkweighers often incorporate additional checking devices such as metal detectors and X-ray machines to enable other attributes of the pack to be checked and acted upon accordingly.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) is the third studio album by American heavy metal band Slipknot. The album was released on May 25, 2004 through Roadrunner Records, and a special edition, containing a bonus disc, was released on April 12, 2005. It is the band's only album produced by Rick Rubin.Following the band's tour to promote its second album in 2002, speculation regarding the future began. Some band members had already been involved in side projects including Murderdolls, To My Surprise, and the reformation of Stone Sour. However, in 2003, Slipknot moved into The Mansion to work on the album. Initially, the band was unproductive, lead vocalist Corey Taylor was drinking heavily. Nevertheless, they wrote more than enough material for a new album the band's first to incorporate more traditional, melodic song structures and acoustic guitars.

Children of Bodom Discography
45,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The discography of Children of Bodom, a five-piece heavy metal band from Espoo, Finland. Throughout their career, the band has been known to incorporate many different musical styles, leading critics and fans to label them as everything from melodic death metal and black metal to thrash metal, progressive metal and even power metal. The current band line-up includes the founders Alexi Laiho (vocals/lead guitar) and Jaska Raatikainen (drums) along with Roope Latvala (rhythm guitar), Janne Wirman (keyboards) and Henkka Seppälä (bass). Children of Bodom have released six studio albums, two live albums, one compilation album, seven singles, two EP's and two split singles. Moreover, in the period 1994 1996 they released three demos under their old moniker, "Inearthed". This list includes the material released as Inearthed. Children of Bodom's first release under their new name was the split single Children of Bodom, released in January 1997. Their debut album Something Wild followed later the same year. 1999 saw the release of two Children of Bodom albums: their second studio album, Hatebreeder, and their first live album, titled Tokyo Warhearts.

Synthesis and characterization of doped spinel ...
54,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Magnesium aluminate has high melting point, possesses capability to sustain the strength at extremely high temperatures and is highly resistant against chemical attacks which makes this material suitable as catalysts and catalyst support. It can be useful as thermal as well as electrical insulating materials in fusion reactors, for applications in solid state lasers and as capacitors in electronic devices and electromagnetic absorbers. Spinel magnesium aluminate has a tendency to incorporate a variety of metallic dopants which may alter its structural and electrical properties. The present study focuses on the synthesis of double doped transition metal magnesium aluminate samples. Co doping is carried out to achieve better optimization of electrical resistivity, dielectric constant and dielectric loss values in the samples thus making them suitable as insulators in fusion reactors, dielectric capacitors in electronic devices and for applications in electronic industries as insulators and electromagnetic radiation absorbers. Microwave method is employed for the synthesis and urea is used as a combustion aid.

The Tecnam P2009 is a single engine, high wing two seat ultralight built in Italy but aimed at the US market. It is the first Tecnam aircraft to incorporate major composite components. The first delivery was made in December 2009.The P2008 is a conventionally laid out strut braced high wing monoplane aimed specifically at the US market. Resembling the earlier Tecnam P92 and P2004 in general appearance, the P2008 differs by introducing a carbon fibre fuselage and integrated fin. The wings and tailplane are all metal.
