If the first thing that comes to mind when you think of virtual reality is a room full of teenagers wearing clunky helmets playing video games, you’re not alone. But VR actually has a broad range of applications including engineering, military and space training, entertainment, marketing, and even fine art. Art works and installations have begun to appear in galleries and exhibitions in both virtual and physical forms.
Saildrone USVs enabled the Alaska Fisheries Science Center to perform the 2020 Alaska pollock survey during a time of considerable environmental and civic uncertainty.
I was contracted by Stimulant to create the text necessary to explain 5G technology as part of an interactive exhibit at the Intel Museum in Santa Clara, CA.
My task was to distill the entire history of mobile technology into 12 ~25-word snippets of information that would be understandable, informative, and engaging for K–12 schoolchildren and adults.
Vital Farms is calling bullsh*t on mainstream egg carton labeling. Cage free? Free range? Tell that to the chickens’ faces. The Vital Farms hens are pasture raised, and that means exactly what it sounds like.
To see what all the egg-citement was about, Randal Ford donned a blue jumpsuit and a hair net and headed out to pasture with the rooster’s call. Vital Farms and the small family farms that supply their eggs have a very stringent policy about cleanliness, even in the field.
Accurate knowledge about the sources of CO2 emissions and where they are going is critical to the ongoing development of climate policies and projecting what the future climate will look like.
Boulder, Colo. regularly tops lists of the fittest cities in America, and considering the nearly year-round sunshine, clean alpine air and #optoutside culture, it really shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Over the past year, Saildrone unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) have completed the first autonomous circumnavigation of Antarctica and the first eastbound and westbound crossing of the Atlantic Ocean by an unmanned vehicle. They have discovered a shipwreck in the Gulf of Mexico, tracked crustaceans in the Bering Sea, and surveyed fish in the North Sea, eddies off the coast of Africa, and air-sea heat transfer in the Gulf Stream. And—they have spent 147 days intentionally sailing up to, and sometimes into, bands of Arctic sea ice.
An accurate map of the ocean bottom is necessary and vital to the global community. Not only is it important for navigation, but also for fisheries and habitat management, telecommunications, offshore energy, and understanding the ocean’s currents and the physical properties. In July, Saildrone partnered with the University of Southern Mississippi (USM) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to launch a Saildrone unmanned surface vehicle (USV) equipped with a shallow-water multibeam echo sounder in the Gulf of Mexico to test the accuracy and longevity of the platform.
Whether you have a week or just a weekend, San Francisco is a perfect starting point for a road trip into Silicon Valley. You’ll enjoy breathtaking vistas high above the Pacific Ocean, taste world-class wines, get in touch with your hippie side, and stroll historic streets in some of NorCal’s most picturesque villages.
A 23-foot-long, wind-powered vehicle called a saildrone became the first unmanned system to circumnavigate Antarctica. SD 1020 was equipped with a suite of climate-grade sensors and collected data in previously unchartered waters, enabling new key insights into ocean and climate processes. The 196-day mission was launched from Bluff, New Zealand, on January 19, 2019, returning to the same port on August 3 after sailing over 13,670 miles around Antarctica. During the mission, the vehicle survived freezing temperatures, 50-foot waves, 80 mph winds, and collisions with giant icebergs.
Saildrone Forecast for iOS is one of only a few weather apps to leverage the power of Apple’s Metal framework to animate global and local weather on one beautiful and accurate map.
San Francisco is so much more than the City by the Bay. The communities that make up the Bay Area stretch from Silicon Valley to Napa Valley, from the East Bay to the shores of Marin County. By car or by ferry, each of these four regions is a unique day trip from downtown San Francisco and nearby SFO.
