'Specialist researchers at the University of Nottingham say they have developed one of the fastest swimsuits in the world.Scientists at NASA tested the fabric using specialised computer modelling technique to track fluid flow.Swimmers testing the new suit have so far broken three world records.The LZR racer suit, manufactured by Speedo, has up to 5% less drag in the water than a previous model produced last year.Jess Sylvester, a swimmer who has been testing the new suit in Nottingham, said she felt "like a rocket" when she wore it."I feel fast just standing out of the pool in the suit."As soon as I hit the water I feel really fast, really streamlined and it just gives me confidence wearing it."Dr Morvan said: "We focus on the hydrodynamics of the swimmer in the pool."Ms Sylvester added the suit was so tight that it stopped muscles "oscillating and vibrating" which caused drag and could slow swimmers down.World records set with the new swimsuit include those by:Australia's Eamon Sullivan, who shaved 0.08 seconds off Alexander Popov's record in the 50m freestyleZimbabwe's Kirsty Coventry who sliced 2/10th of a second off Hungarian Krisztina Egerzegi's record in the 200m backstrokeand American swimmer Natalie Coughlin who broke the 100m backstroke record in 59.21 seconds.BBC storyVideo of the suit in actionOdd Speedo game websiteUniversity of Nottingham Press ReleasePast Olympic row over Speedo suits.

First of the month plus a Saturday plus a day to myself = sixty-nine species in 11 hours. That's a personal best (previous personal best = 73 species in two days). I'm wrecked, but pleased. If you're interested in the full list, check here. I think my favourite of the day was the Little Tern.

Visualize say a lifesize Halloween or Christmas character that speaks or makes a sound when activated by the motion of a passerby. I need to record a 10-20 second message of my own that will playback when activated.
Hello, i am an electronics hobbyist, and want to develop an system which is an voltage quality recorder, i mean it measures the various voltage disturbances like transients, swells, sags, THD, etc, I was comfortable in analyzing the concept and with the software too. but for the hardware implementation i am confused of which kind of TI microcontroller or microprocessor is suitable for my project. i will work on the real time calculations and will use FFT in analyzing the voltage.I am planning on dsp processors of C2000 series of TI. But not able to wisely choose them. On what major parameters should i look upon while choosing them. I would be helped if anyone can suggest me which one would precisely be used for this cause. Any more suggestions on how to proceed with it are welcomed. Thank you.

Hello, Instructables community! I have a digital voice recorder. It doesn't come with a shirt clip. Thus, if if I put the DVR in my pocket, it will be sliding and may fall to its side (the item is not very tall). How can I create a shirt clip so that I can keep the recorder standing up in my pocket? See first image. The silver device on the right has the shirt clip. The size of the device on the left (Sony) is 4.5 x 1.5 x 0.8 inches. Unfortunately, the device that I bought does not have a shirt clip. My device is 4.3 x 1.5 x 0.7 inches. I've attached four photos of my device. It's the one with a face that is black on top and silver on the bottom. Preferably, I want a shirt-clip that won't leave any marks on the recorder. Thank you!!!

Red Bull's Flugtag event is normally an event where the focus is on ridiculous contraptions falling into the water. But sometimes people actually do come up with ideas that actually get them some distance. Here's a video of the new record of 207 feet set by Major Trouble and the Dirty Dixies. For comparison, the second video shows a typical Flugtag launch. via Neatorama

I bought a cheap answering machine, but it's too big for the container I want to put it in. What parts can I use from it? I just want it to record a sound and play it back when a button is pressed. Also, I salvaged a part from a touch lamp. How can I incorporate this for the power?

On certain cameras, DVD players, VCR players it has the red, yellow and white "out", if I were to have a spy camera with the yellow and white "out" how would I record that in the space of a largish pocket? Kipkay's Instructable features the exact same style of camera (go here www.instructables.com/id/Covert-Spy-Sunglasses/)Pic is of my one, not my picture though (sorry). Red is for power.

I looked up at bat detector, a device that converts ultrasonic signals into audible sounds. Most bats produce high frequency calls which are often higher than a human ear can pick up. A bat detector picks up the frequencies and then converts the sound into a lower, audible frequency. I was thinking if I could get a bat detector, I use it to capture the ultrasonic sounds.While bat detector could pick up these high frequencies, it would be interesting to see how it will pick up the faintly heard, to human ears - sounds of the industrialised areas/city or even at isolated/quiet areas. The bat detector I want to use is this - http://www.magenta2000.co.uk/acatalog/B ... _Bat4.html I'm thinking of hooking up the bat detector to a digital recorder and a binaural microphone and capture the sound through those equipments. I would greatly appreciate your suggestions/opinions on this matter.

I need a sound playback/recorder IC for a certain musical instrument that I am building. 25 buttons will be attached to an ATmega644 microcontroller, and the microcontroller will tell the sound IC to play a different sound for each button. The problem is that I haven't found a chip that will store so many sounds seperately, so do you know of any???I've seen the Arduino Wave shield, but I am looking for something with not so many parts.EDIT: I have decided to use the wave shield design, so I don't need any more feedback, unless you have a really brilliant idea

If you're into fishing you might find this report of a new world record breaking large mouth bass from Japan weighing 22 Lbs 5oz. This would beat the long standing, and controversial record of George Perry which has stood for 77 years by one ounce. But the record keepers require that the record be broken by 2 ounces. So Close.

I've always loved recording my music onto computers or cassettes and it's always been a little dream of mine to put one or two of them onto a homemade vinyl record. Obviously this would be very lo-fi but it seems like it'd still be a fun project. Anyone know if this is possible or if they've done something similar? Way I would think it could be done is to reverse the wiring in side a record player into a microphone of some sort and replace the needle with a razor blade with a blank sheet of the certain type of vinyl?

I would like to put together a recording system that would allow me to not only record guitar/bass onto my computer but also allow me to output those recordings to their respective amps simultaneously for playback. I have a buddy that plays guitar so would like to jam out with a bass line as well or when he's not around I can jam out to both. Any ideas of equipment /software that might be needed ?
