The Missing Square Puzzle Paradox

No comments :
The missing square puzzle is an optical illusion used in mathematics classes to help students understand geometrical figures. It depicts two arrangements made of similar shapes in somewhat different configurations.

The key to the puzzle is the fact that neither of the "triangles" is truly a triangle, because what appears to be the hypotenuse is bent. In other words, the "hypotenuse" does not maintain a consistent slope, even though it may appear that way to the human eye. So, with the bent hypotenuse the first figure actually occupies a combined 32 units, while the second figure occupies 33, including the "missing" square. Note the grid point where the red and blue triangles in the lower image meet and compare it to the same point on the other figure; the edge is slightly under the mark in the upper image, but goes through it in the lower. A very fascinating and interesting geometrical puzzle.

Indoor Clouds by Berndnaut Smilde

No comments :
Berndnaut Smilde is a Dutch artist who since 2010 has been skillfully creating clouds inside indoor spaces. The artists has mastered the art of controlling the weather conditions of a room by making clouds appear inside the oddest of spaces. This projects was called “Nimbus” and it combines various interior of rooms and with clouds figures.  Smilde playfully reinterprets the cartoon reference of a cloud as a the universal sign of bad luck by creating the profound where walking into an empty space dominated by a colossal cloud makes one ask whether it is real or just a strange hallucination.

In fact, very few people have actually seen Berndnaut Smilde's work in person. As short-lived as a summer storm, his unusual clouds live only to exist in photographic form. Somewhere in-between reality and illustration, the beauty of a fleeting smog is captured on a print that becomes the only way to prove that they ever in fact existed.

World Record for Puzzle Solving

No comments :
Jigsaw Puzzle Record
Elaine Lewis managed to complete a 250-piece jigsaw in an unbelievable 14 minutes, 58 seconds - more than half of the existing record. With official witnesses Councillor Pam King and Express editor Mandy Leigh looking on, Elaine was a hurricane of puzzle power as she fitted together an oval picture of famous Guinness world record breakers.

She overcame the previous record of 34 minutes proving that experience and dedication really is all you need. Elaine Lewis said: "I’m really pleased with the time. I could have done it again in that time and still beaten the record! My optician probably wouldn’t like me doing them that much - and certainly not my osteopath!" Elaine undertook the challenge to raise awareness of her son’s rare chromosome disorder, called Williams Syndrome and was able to raise more than £300 in sponsorship from doing the challenge.
