Virtual reality (also known as immersive multimedia) is a computer-simulated environment that mocks or simulates real-world environments, as well as simulates physical presences in real or imagined worlds. VR technology has traditionally been a virtual sight- and perhaps sound-based experience, but has the potential to recreate other sensory experiences, such as virtual taste, smell, and even touch. As for touch (haptic technology), some systems have already included such experiences in...

Maglev
2014-04-11 09:17:26

Maglev is a vehicle propulsion system that uses magnetic levitation to move a vehicle with magnets instead of wheels. The vehicle hovers a short distance above the guide way by magnets and also uses the magnets for motion. The operation of this system is quite and maintains less friction for improved acceleration and deceleration. Weather does not affect the performance of the vehicle. Currently, some trains make use of the Maglev system, but vacuum tube trains could allow a Maglev system...

Roundup Ready Soybean, GTS 40-3-2, is a genetically engineered variety of glyphosate-resistant soybeans created by Monsanto. Glyphosate kills plants by obstructing the synthesis of the essential amino acids phenylaline, tyrosine, and tryptophan. These amino acids are referred to as “essential” due to the fact that animals cannot make them; only plants and micro-organisms can make them and animals acquire them by consuming plants. Plants and microorganisms make these amino acids with...
