A unique hot-rod style roadster of the 1960s

Maybe it has become a law of nature when a car shown with eccentric shapes and or not in accordance with the market demands so made it failed to be mass-produced or sold to the market. But uniquely, there are a few cars with an eccentric appearance that actually make them timeless.

Now let's find out, one of the most unusual, exclusive cars that you would hardly ever see on the road today. One of them is the following car which was built based on the design of Herb Adams, a development engineer at Pontiac and a key figure in the muscle cars of that GM division, wanted to realize his dreams in 1965 of creating a hot-rod dressed up as a design study.

The car design called the Vivant 77, it is aimed to not only successfully compete with its legendary stylistic role models, such as Bertone’s Alfa Romeo 'BAT mobiles,' but also with opponents on the quarter-mile drag-strip.

Adams penned the body, produced a spaceframe, and found the rare 370 ci Pontiac V8 from 1958 and sourced all the other components before having the vehicle clothed in sheet aluminum. At first glance, the design is very thick with the Alfa Romeo BAT series and seems capable of being one of the 1962 Covington el Tiburon rivals.

The coachwork was fashioned by the three English panel beaters Harry Kennedy, Jack Henser and John Glover, who the US dragster scene was familiar with as 'The Beatles of Troy, Michigan.' After completing construction, this car was displayed for the first time at the 1966 Detroit Auto-Rama event.

When the party was over, Vivant 77 was forgotten about before it has shown off to the public again in 2009 and being authentically restored to its original condition.
Lastly, the car reappeared before the public at the Concorso d'Eleganza 2019 and sunbathing lakeside on the grounds of Villa d'Este at Lake Como, Italy along with another 50 of the world's rarest cars and motorcycles. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DESIGNBOOM | JALOPY JOURNAL]

They never been existed and how come are there their pictures?

Hi, we're meet again for the first time in the 2019.

The development of technology increasingly days is indeed more amazing. Things previously only existed in sci-fi movies, slowly become reality now. And this is one of them.

When you though with logic and common sense, only those who have been born into this world that ought have photos. Whether it's a baby photo, a photo when was a teenager, a photo when became an adult, and a photo when was a grandparent. This is natural because every person must want to devote precious moments and memories in their life.
The faces on the left were created by AI in 2014; on the right are ones made by AI in 2018. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2Vsb5Mb)
But, what if it turns out that there are photos containing people's faces that never even existed in this world? No, they are not ghosts. Nor the aliens disguised as human beings. The truth is people on the photo below are born not by humans, but are "born" by an artificial intelligent technology.

In a simple description is that these photos were created by robots developed by an American technology company named Nvidia. You might know those company as a supplier of processor and gaming devices. In fact, besides that they also developed many other technologies, one of which is these AI technology.

The artificial intelligence technology is called Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). Well, this technology is capable of creating imaginary human photographs that are difficult to distinguish from real human portraits.

Then, how did the AI technology create those imaginary human photos? The researchers entered 70 thousand real human photo datas of various ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds into computer databases. Then the computer will study, sort and process those 70 thousand photos to produce the photos of truly new humans.
Style transfer allows you to blend facial characteristics from different people. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2Vsb5Mb)
GAN's is not only able to create portraits of new humans, but it can also create additional accessories to support the appearance of those "human". For example, adding glasses, hats, or jewelry. So, this portrait is increasingly difficult to distinguish from real humans.

This technology might amaze you, but many people are worried about these technology using, especially politicians. They worry that this technology will be misused and make politicians speak or move as creators want. In fact, all of that is merely engineering. And some say misuse of this technology will make hoax news "more trusted".

Of course this technology abusing will make a scene throughout the world due to misunderstandings. In fact, everything has been engineered by irresponsible or bad people. And for its own positive impact, it seems that it is still difficult to find, unless it is used by intelligence to create a new identity.

But as a red thread, it all depends on ourselves as the creators and users if we want the technology to have benefits or just the opposite. What do you think? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | THE VERGE | SKYMINDS]

In near future, a smartphone app can cure motion sickness

Do you often feel nauseous or dizzy when you're traveling by bus, boat, or airplane? There is good news for you often feel it. Rumors that the future will be created mobile applications that can help overcome the symptoms of motion sickness. Sophisticated is not it?

As reported by the Sciencetimes, scientists predict will emerge a smart phone application that applying small electrical currents to the scalp via headset. The device can be used for reducing nausea during the long trip.

The research team also states this application will not cause drowsiness for the user. Small electrical current which equated 9 Volt battery, it feels like a tingling and tickling believed to be entered into the brain that processes motion signal.

Based on the results of research published in the journal Neurology, proved that the device is able to stimulate electricity to the human head will free users from feeling drunk immediately. In the research shows that electric current is mounted on the left side of the human head is able to act as a drug against nausea and dizziness while traveling.

Although the biological causes of seasickness is not known clearly, they believe it is due to a conflict of censorship that goes from the eye and balance organ in the inner ear. Given this electric current, will hit the area of ​​the brain that process signals duties of the balance organ of the inner ear.

"We believe 5 to 10 years from now, people will be taking the anti nausea. We hope this idea can be integrated with a mobile phone. These findings will be of goods 'shall' take before you travel," said Qadeer Arshad, the study leader from Imperial College London.

Arshad added, the military is also interested in developing this idea for those suffering from a hangover while operating a drone remotely. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SCIENCETIMES]

The greatness of the NSA spying machine was revealed

A recent leaked documents from NSA whistle-blower, Edward Snowden reveals the greatness of the National Security Agency (NSA) 'engine' in the course of a spy. Surveillance and tapping machine is an evil digital application so-called malware.

U.S. intelligence agencies have a system called "TURBINE" that can spread malware millions at a time. TURBINE is under NSA hackers unit called Tailored Access Operations (TAO). From the documents cited by The Register, revealed that the TURBINE able to handle malware that infects the computer in "large scale (millions of units)" through an automated system that controls implanted malware in groups.

TURBINE have 'an expert system' that will automatically choose the type of malware that is matched with the target and the particular situation, and then install it on the target computer. Thus, this system requires little human intervention to be run.
One presentation outlines how the NSA performs “industrial-scale exploitation” of computer networks across the world. (Picture from: http://fox43.com/)
Types of malware such as those coded name of 'GROK' that can record keyboard keystrokes, 'CAPTIVATEDAUDIENCE' which can record sound through a microphone, or 'SALVAGERABBIT' that can copy data from computer storage media.

NSA system design is similar to other sophisticated cyber weapon ever makes a scene in the virtual world, such as Stuxnet and Flame. Both programs also allegedly deliberately made by certain countries. NSA has enabled TURBINE least since July 2010 and has infected up to 100,000 computers.

TURBINE is also connected to the NSA sensor system that called "TURMOIL" which tapped into a worldwide computer network to monitor data traffic and identifying potential targets. TURMOIL can track targets via e-mail address, or IP, or cookies from major sites such as Google, Microsoft, Twitter, and Yahoo!. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | THE REGISTER]
