Panasonic unveils the first 8K camera with an ‘organic’ sensor

Organic image sensors are no longer just an idea inside research labs — Panasonic just announced the world’s first 8K organic sensor in the AK-SHB 810. The camera realizes the potential of organic sensors by capturing a wider dynamic range and eliminating rolling shutter distortion by using a global shutter. Organic doesn’t mean a GMO-free camera — this type of sensor uses two different layers. One is a photoconductive film that’s responsible for capturing the light. The second layer holds the circuits that turn that light into a digital image. The…

About Crohn’s & Colitis

Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis are Iife long gastrointestinal disorders  that commonly present themselves in children, adolescents and adulthood. Collectively known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), the conditions are an emerging global disease, with Australia having one of the highest prevalence in the world. About 1.6 million Americans have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). This figure includes about 780,000 people with Crohn’s disease and another 907,000 with ulcerative colitis. Researchers have estimated that 6 to 15 new cases of Crohn’s disease are diagnosed per 100,000 people each year.  More than 80,000 Australians live with these conditions, with numbers expected to increase to more than…

Periodic Table of Elements

Chemists have always looked for ways of arranging the elements to reflect the similarities between their properties. The modern periodic table lists the elements in order of increasing atomic number (the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom). Historically, however, relative atomic masses were used by scientists trying to organise the elements. This was mainly because the idea of atoms being made up of smaller sub-atomic particles (protons, neutrons and electrons) had not been developed. Nevertheless, the basis of the modern periodic table was well established and even…

About Tesla

Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy. Tesla was founded in 2003 by a group of engineers who wanted to prove that people didn’t need to compromise to drive electric – that electric vehicles can be better, quicker and more fun to drive than gasoline cars. Today, Tesla builds not only all-electric vehicles but also infinitely scalable clean energy generation and storage products. Tesla believes the faster the world stops relying on fossil fuels and moves towards a zero-emission future, the better. Launched in 2008, the…
