Focus Description:

Any time is set on the clock - provided that the minute hand points to one digit, and the hour hand to another. The clock is then placed face down on the table.

All this is done in the absence of a magician. Entering the room, he puts his fingers on the lid of the clock and, after a short hesitation, names what numbers the hour and minute hands indicate.

Focus What time is it?

Focus secret:

He does this without looking at anyone in the room, and yet he has an accomplice who allows him to tell the time - without any visible signal or spoken word. The clock itself is used here as a means of transmitting information. The assistant either volunteers to put the clock on the table or the magician can point to him. The table is divided into 12 imaginary squares; the assistant places the clock on the square corresponding to the number indicated by the hour hand.

Focus What time is it?

The direction of the minute hand is determined by the position of the clock on the table. Having taken the far corner of the table for 12 hours on the dial, the assistant turns the clock so that his crown points to the minute hand.

For this trick, both the assistant and the magician need to practice so as not to make a mistake, then he will be successful.

Improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells 14.06.2024

The latest solar technology research represents a significant breakthrough in improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells. This method, based on the use of pulsed light, offers promise for simplifying the production and expanding the applications of these cells. A research team from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology has developed an innovative method that uses pulsed light to improve the electrical conductivity of PbS solar cells. This method can significantly reduce the processing time required to achieve similar results. PbS quantum dot solar cells have significant potential in solar technology due to their photovoltaic properties. However, the formation of defects on their surface can reduce their performance. The new method helps suppress defect formation and improve electrical conductivity. Using strong light to complete the process ... >>

Changes in a father's brain after the birth of a child 13.06.2024

A recent study conducted by scientists from the Hefei Institute of Physical Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found interesting changes in the brains of men after becoming fathers. These changes were associated with involvement in child care, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Scientists found that men who became fathers experienced a loss of brain volume after giving birth. This volume loss was associated with greater involvement in parenting, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Researchers have found significant changes in men's brains between the prenatal and postnatal periods. In particular, there was a loss of gray matter volume, especially in parts of the brain responsible for higher functions such as language, memory, problem solving and decision making. Men who paid more attention to their children and spent more time with them lost more gray matter in their brains. This also affected their mental health ... >>

Wireless charging via Wi-Fi 27.05.2021

A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore and Japan's Tohoku University have been able to convert Wi-Fi signals into electricity.

Their invention is not theoretical, but tested and proven to be effective. The technology for using wireless network signals to power various devices is based on a new chip capable of generating microwaves with low output power.

For a long time there were problems with the scalability of the technology, since there was a critical lack of power. The solution was a scheme in which eight STOs are connected in series.

During the experiments, it was possible to achieve stable operation of the LED at 1,6 V for a minute after charging the capacitor for only 5 seconds. The array was capable of taking 2,4GHz radio waves generated by Wi-Fi signals and turning them into a DC voltage.
