Im doingit looks like any normal popcorn maker. However, look closer and you will notice that instead of a built-in popping device, it features a microphone system and launcher. Welcome to the world's first voice-activated popcorn launcher,You must fill it with the popcorn you choose and it shoots it when you say pop. it has voice activation that whenever you say it it dectects which direction it came from and shoots it there.
For it is still not for sale but if the artical gets enouph reviews they might put it into stores.But alot of comments will have to be made.I think that will be cool because you could just be dong homework say pop and have a peice once and a while.Do you think it would be cool

How often have you wished you could be like Luke Skywalker and master the 'force' of your mind to make things happen. Now thanks to two Louisville residents your wish may be granted. The only difference? Instead of being able to lift ships from murky swamps, you will have the power to explode watermelons! Brad and chris are members of the Kentucky-based hackerspace LVL1. an open community where engineers, scientists, educators and artists come together to create fun projects, began with a Star Wars Force Trainer. Based on technology that has been used by heart specialists for many years, the toy comprises of a wireless headset and a 10-inch tall clear plastic tower with a ping-pong ball inside. When the player puts on the headset that is programmed to read brain activity and focuses intently on the ball, it activates a training remote situated at the base of the tower which in turn, creates a flow of air that helps the ball rise within the tower. The two tweaked the toy such that instead of connecting to a fan, it was linked to an air compressor that was monitored by an Arduino-based electronic device capable of sensing the concentration of the person attempting to explode the melon. When the signals reached an acceptable level the device activated the compressor, which released a burst of air, powerful enough to shred the watermelon to pieces.
The 'Mind over Melon' project was demonstrated at an art and science festival held in Clermont, Kentucky on August 25th where some lucky people got to test their concentration levels. Unfortunately, the two have no plans to turn their brilliant invention into a commercial toy. Craig is just happy to have fulfilled his lifelong dream of being able to explode an object, using the power of his mind! this is what my articl is about.

Cockroaches may be our saviors in natural disasters. A guy named Alper Bozkurt designed a biobot. Cockroaches can survive in almost any environment. They have to do surgery on the cockroaches. They place them in a fridge for a few hours, which makes them hibernate, and makes them Immobile. They only weight 0.7 grams with all the things on their back. They insert electrodes into their antenna’s and Cerci, this guides them.
The biobots work perfectly fine. They also have done a lot of work to them. Mr.Bozkurt thinks that cockroaches will be mans bestfriend. Cockroaches have been around since dinosaurs they are also the oldest insects. They are the most amazing insects.
Not fascinated? Well they can go one week with their head cut off. They can also hold their breathe for 40 minutes and run 3 miles an hour. Their maneuvers are so rapid that they can disappear before you can say the word cockroach.

I'm doing my article review on an Alaskan teen surviving 26-hours floating inside a fish crate by staying positive and singing. This article is by Meera Dolasia and it was wrote on September 13, 2012.
"What began as a normal day of fishing for 19-year-old Ryan Harris and 40-year-old Stonie 'Mac' Huffman, ended up as what can only be described an adventure, neither will ever forget and, it's not because of the size of the catch either!" The 'adventure' began on the morning of Friday, September 7th when two Alaska residents headed out to the water in there 28-foot aluminum boat in search of Coho Salmon. Two miles out in the ocean their boat began to have some mechanical issues. They managed to fix the problem, but decided to head back to shore anyways. All of a sudden, the water started to get rough and before they could call for help or grab a life jacket, an eight-foot wave hit hard against their boat and overturned it,tossing both men into the cold Alaskan waters. They both began to look around to see what they could grab and saw a couple of empty fishing crates from the boat. Stonie however, was not as lucky and managed to only grab onto the lid. Soon they both began to drift apart. While Ryan continued to bob up and down in his makeshift boat, the waves started carrying Stoin away. He caught sight of a life suits from their boat and he managed to grab it. He kept his spirts up by singing songs like row row your boat and rudolph the red nose reindeer. After two hours his friend was resued and able to guide the Coast Guared and, a whopping 26 hurs after the ordeal began Ryan was found and brought back to shore.

Im writing about "What To Expect In The 2013 Edition of The Guinness Book Of Records." I think it would be interesting to learn about all the stunts these people...just ordinary people can do.What began as a quest to find the fastest game bird in Europe has evolved into the world's most sold copyrighted (a record by itself), not to mention, most eagerly awaited book. The latest version of the Guinness World Records that amalgamates the world's most amazing, crazy, funny and outrageous collection of achievements, will not dissapoint the reader.
Dog or Pony? That, is the question that Michigan resident Denise Doorlag gets constantly asked about Zeus her Great Dane. Now, she and her family will be able to proudly respond that he is not just any dog, but, the world's tallest one! Measuring 44 inches from foot to shoulder and a whooping 7-foot 4 inches when standing on this hind legs, that is just amazing, the three-year old towers over last year's winner, Arizona-based Giant George by . . . . . . . Just an inch! WOW!!!
Japanese designer Kazuhiro Watanabe did not just break the record for the world's tallest mohawk - he shattered it, with his 3-foot, 8.6 inch tower that was 13.11 inches taller than existing record holder Stefan Srocka's. The patient man who used three cans of hairspray and one large bottle of gel to keep his masterpiece afloat, has been growing his hair for 15 years to achieve his goal. Thats a long time! So why go through all this trouble? To get into the record books of course! The Japanese man said that his other idea was to break the record for drinking the world's most Tabasco sauce - This definitely, was a safer option!
In July 2012, these seven women squeezed themselves into the 2013 Guinness World Records by not only all getting inside a photo booth simultaneously, but also, staying in the same position for over five seconds. In case you are planning on breaking this record with some innovative ideas (like younger and shorter kids), do keep in mind that in order to qualify, the occupant has to be at least 18 years of age and more than five feet tall. As you have probably figured out by now, these seven women were a little special - They were all contortionists, which explains their amazingly flexible bodies.

i am writing about the water in the air .The fact that J.K. Rowling's vivid imagination conveyed so brilliantly in the Harry Potter series of books has been a big hit with kids and adults all over the world, is a well-known fact

However, the amazing feat achieved by a team of researchers led by physicist Chris Benmore at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois, does not use spells or wands to get the water droplets to float around in the air. Instead, it does its magic with the help of soundwaves. yes the gravity is in the air .

In order to try suspend the water in thin air, the team began with an acoustic levitator. they used it to make it where the humans can see it.

I need to learn this because i want to be a sicentist some day. it is so amazing what people can do.

Alaskan Teen Survives 26-Hours Floating Inside A Fish Crate By Staying Positive And Singing!

He was stranded… he looked to see what he could hold on to if there was anything to hold too. He had managed to grab a couple of fishing crates, he climbed in to one. Stonie however, was not as lucky and managed to only grab onto the lid. Soon, they both started drifting apart.

Ryan continued to bob up and down in his makeshift boat; the waves started carrying Stonie away. But as luck would have it, he caught sight of one of the life suits from their vessel floating in the ocean and managed to grab it.
Though putting it on and hanging on to the lid at the same time was no easy task, Stonie managed and then began his long swim back to shore. Then he ended up on a deserted patch of land about 25 miles northwest of Sitka, where he had to wait until Saturday morning almost 24 hours after the fishing trip began, for rescuers to find him.

The fascinating migration trek of monarch butterflies has begun.
By: meera dolasia
(Kali brown)
I am wrinting about the most amazing insects that can fly and they are called butterflies but not just any butterfly monarch butterflies. The most important thing about monarch butterflies are making their way to north Americas colder regions. The butterflies living in north Americas east coast head down to Mexico,and the butterflies living in the rocky mountain head to California.to get to their destination they follow the direction of the sun.
The most impotant things in this article is in some case spans about 2,000 miles each way and can take as long as 2 monthes . with the help of 24 hrs body clock known circadian clock that lies in their antenna the butterflies deduce wheather it’s 8 in the morning or 4 in the afternoon. Around February and march the butterflies start reawakening and start their trek back along the way they lay their eggs and die.

Im doing my article reveiw on the Monarch Butterflies. About a thousand Monarch Butterflies are beginning to make their way to North America from their homes of California and Mexico. Monarch Butterflies fly all around the world.Once they get to their destination in California or Mexico, they spend the winter living off fat reserves. Around February and March, they reawaken, and start their trek back - Along the way they lay eggs and die. It's therefore the kids or even grandkids, depending on how long the return journey takes, that find their way back to their summer homes with the help of their in-built GPS devices. Simply fascinating isn't it?

My article is about a teen that survives for 26 hours floating inside a fish crate on the ocean just off Cape Edgecombe in Alaska. This article was by-Meera Dolasia. This article is about 19 year old Ryan Harris and 40 year old Stonie “Mac” Huffman. Their day started off as a normal day for fishing, but at the end of the day it was one they would never forget.

On September 7th the two took off toward the shore and headed into sea in their boat. While they were fishing, their boat had some mechanical problems. They fixed them, but decided to head back to shore anyway. On their way back a huge 8 ft. wave crashed into their boat.

They were thrown into the freezing waters, and they began to look around for something to grab onto. They spotted some fishing crates floating around. Ryan climbed into one of them, however, Stonie could only grab onto a lid. They slowly started drifting apart. Luckily Stonie saw one of the life jackets from their boat floating around. He put that on and started swimming toward shore. While this was going on, Ryan was just trying to survive in his fishing crate.

Stonie finally reached a patch of land, and had to wait until the next morning till rescuers found him. Meanwhile Ryan was still just floating around. The teen said he stayed positive by sing and repeating to himself- ‘I’m Ryan Hunter Harris and I’m not going to die here.’
Two hours after Stonie got rescued and about 26 hours after the fishing trip began, Ryan was finally found and brought back to shore. The amazing thing was, that besides a few scrapes and bruises, Ryan was in perfect health!

I chose this article because I though it looked very interesting. I think I learned from this article, that by staying positive you can make it through anything! I think I realized how hard it would be to survive for that long. I think this will help us in the future because it puts a better idea in our mind about how dangerous it is to be stranded that long.

My article is about the world record book. I choose this article because I thought it was really interesting how people can do these very odd things. This article is about 6 diffrent record place holders. These record holders are the world’s tallest dog, tallest mohawk, biggest macules, biggest bike, biggest set of drums, and 7 woman that all got in a photo booth and stayed in the same spot for 5 minutes.

First theres the tallest dog. Measuring 44 inches from foot to shoulder and a whooping 7-foot 4 inches when standing on this hind legs, the three-year old towers over last year's winner, Arizona-based Giant George by . . . . . . . Just an inch! Its owner often gets asked is that a dog or pony? Then theres the tallest Mohawk. This Mohawk is 3 foot, 8.6 tall.

Here comes Moustafa Ismail, the man with the world's largest biceps. His left arm measures an astounding 64.77 cm (25.5) inches when flexed and just a tad smaller, 62.23 cm (24.5 in), when straightened. His right arm measurements are about half an inch smaller in both positions. The Egyptian born man who now resides in Franklin, Massachusetts works out seven days a week and regularly lifts 80 pound dumbbells, curls 400 pounds and benches up to 500 pounds.

That’s only some of them. There is several more. The world record book has very unique things in it. Most of them are just likeus but with incredible talents. Thers millions of things you could do to be in the world record book, you just have to try.

The Popinator is a machine developed by Indiana Popcorn, this machine uses a binaural microphone to detect the direction of the users voice. The way you activate the popcorn launcher by simply saying “pop” and the Popinator shoots a piece of popcorn your way.
The Popinator is now currently a “Home trail project” for employees of Indiana Popcorn. This machine is perfect for kids and adults of all ages. “The popinator is expected to be a big hit!” says VP of development of Indiana Popcorn. All in all this product looks like it will be a big hit. )

I'm doing my article on the frozen mammoth. It was found perfectly preserved in yakutia in eastern russia. Korean scientists want to recreate the wolly mammoth and bring it back to life. But first they need to find a living cell of the mammoth.
So far they have not found a cell, but when they do it is still a very hard procedure to make a mammoth. first they must find the cell then implant it in an elephant egg, then plant it in a surrogate elephant mother. there are many things thet may go wrong the elephant mother may reject the egg or die and the dna may not be reliable.
Anyway it will take several days (600) to even give birth to the mammoth egg. If this works out they might be able to figure out why the mammoth became extinct. If this works out they are not sure how to keep breeding these mammoths.
I thought this article looked cool and may help me understand how this procedure works if i become this type of scientist in the future.

Article: Levitate Water Harry Potter Style- No Wand Or Spell Needed!

1) I chose his article because I thought levitating water was impossible. I thought the article was fake, but I guess it wasn't. I never thought levitating water would be possible!

2) They levitate the water by using two soundwaves. The soundwaves producing so much pressure that light-wieght objects, such as water droplets, may float.

3) I thought the entire concept was amazing. The scientists say they are going to use the floating chemicals to make medicine. I thought that would be really interesting.

4) If they are able to make medicine this way, then they can stop using all the mechanics used to make medicine previously. Levitating water could really help cut down on pollution. This could help the world in so many ways!

The Fascinating Migration Trek of Monarch butterflies Has Begun!
Thousands of monarch butterflies are beginning to make their way from North America’s cold region to find their winter homes.
There hibernating spot most of the time is in Mexico and California.
It takes about two months to get back when spring hits to get to where they were.
It’s very unusual for insects to migrate.
It’s because most of them don’t have a life span.

Some are cold kids and grandkids.
They make a same trip each year.
There are some who live in Mexico.
There are some in the Rocky Mountains.
They fly down from Rocky Mountains.

They follow the sun to get to there destination.
It’s not easy as it sounds.
The sun moves cause of the earth’s rotation.
So it’s always moving.
There very colorful.
Some are big.
Some are small.
They have tiny eyes.
They move in the winter and spring.
They can fly fast.

A Cockroach You May Actually Be Grateful To See
Article by Meera Dolasia
Cockroaches are one of the oldest insects. They are one of the most disliked insect's by people. But one day cockroaches maybe a savior to us, when a natural disasters hit.
At a university in N.C. a professor and a team of engineers are working on a plan to rescue trapped people in a natural disaster. They will use the cockroaches to locate them.
In order to do this, they have to do surgery on the cockroaches. To do surgery, they put the roaches in the fridge. This makes the roaches imobile. Next they glue magnets to the roaches backs and strap on backpacks. The backpacks have tracking devices in them.
Last the engineers took tweezers and put electrodes in the cockroaches antennas. This lets them guide the roaches. One day this roach may save many lives. More research is being tested.

It is done by microgravity conditions.How could they have thought of this?2 speakers generate sound waves.They generate it above humans range of hearing.
The frequencies are alligned correcly so the sound waves cause it do defy gravity and levitate.
I think this is really interesting. This would be fun to do sometime. How did they know what medicen to use?

Stonie however, was not as lucky and managed to only grab onto the lid. Soon, they both started drifting apart.” That would be hard to be stranded in the ocean. You would not know when you would see your family and friends
“Though putting it on and hanging on to the lid at the same time was no easy task, Stonie managed and then began his long swim back to shore.” I agree with you that would be hard. I would not be able to do it.
“Meanwhile, 19-year old Ryan continued to drift around the ocean trying to stay alive and hoping someone would find him.” That is really smart. I wonder how long he was in the crate.

26 year-old Ryan Hunter Harris and 40 year-old Stonie 'Mac' Huffman went fishing on September 7th just two miles into the ocean, just off Cape Edgecombe. When they went fishing they started to have mechanical problems with the boat but somehow they managed to fix the boat and thought they would be save if they go back to shore. But that was just the beginning of their problems when an 8 ft. wave knocked both men out of their 28-foot aluminum boat without having the chance to grab a life jacket. Once they get knocked out of their boat they tried everything they can to try to find something to hold on to from the wreckage of the boat. Just out of their luck Hunter found a fish create and sat in the tub while Stonie grabbed ahold of the lid, while they started to float away from each other Stonie founded a life jacket kind of suit and went off to get help.
What I thought was important was that both men have survived the 46 degree water and managed to go 26 hrs. without food or water. Because some people can’t survive without food or water that long so it surprised me that they survived that long. What also surprised me was that they survived in that kind of water because I probably couldn’t have survived 12 hours more like 26 but somehow they survived that cold water. All I know is that if my brother and I couldn’t have survived that much hours without food then I don’t know how Hunter and Stonie could have survived it. What I don’t understand is that you can survive without food for 24 hours but i didn’t think you could do that for 26 hours.
I thought a main idea was that “Ryan continued to bob up and down in his makeshift boat, the waves started carrying Stonie away. But as luck would have it, he caught sight of one of the life suits from their vessel floating in the ocean and managed to grab it. Though putting it on and hanging on to the lid at the same time was no easy task, Stonie managed and then began his long swim back to shore. He ended up on a deserted patch of land about 25 miles northwest of Sitka, where he had to wait until Saturday morning almost 24 hours after the fishing trip began, for rescuers to find him”.
I thought a main idea was that “Meanwhile, 19-year old Ryan continued to drift around the ocean trying to stay alive and hoping someone would find him. The brave teenager says he stayed positive by repeating to himself over and over again - 'I'm Ryan Hunter Harris and I'm not going to die here' and, by singing fun nursery rhymes like 'Row row row your boat', and Rudolph the red nose reindeer.' Two hours after his friend was rescued and able to guide the Coast Guard and, a whopping 26 hours after the ordeal began, Ryan was finally found and brought back to shore! What was amazing was that besides a few scratches, the youngster was in perfect health. Will he ever venture out on fishing trip again? Only time will tell!”
I think this information will help me in the future because my cousin Charlie loves to go fishing. He will never stop loving it so if he goes to an ocean to go fishing I’m afraid that this will happen to him one day. This also will help me because I will tell him this story so he’ll be prepared in case this situation ever happens to him so he will find help and save him. I hope he will be safe when going fishing cause anything can happen.

Why is China’s Yangtze River turning crimson?
BY: Alizabeth Donaldson
Asia's longest river, that originates from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau glaciers and meanders through southwest, central and eastern China before ending in the East China Sea, is normally known as the Golden Watercourse, thanks to its pale brown color. Since September 6th, the river has taken on a bright red nobody is sure why. As for the residents of the area? Some are keeping away, while others are treading in carefully to collect a sample of this unusual water that resembles tomato juice. And then there are those like this farmer, that are going about their business as though nothing has changed.

My article review is about Perfectly Preserved Woolly Mammoth Provides New Hope of Resurrecting the Mighty Mammal. This article is written by Meera Dolasia. I think the main idea is that scientists are trying to bring back the wooly mammoth. Today that would be a huge accomplishment. Well we’ll just have to see what happens.
Scientists have found many fossilized specimens of the wooly mammoth, but never one with a living cell. They have recently found a wooly mammoth that still has fatty tissue, hair, and bone marrow. They are trying to piece together enough DNA to create a wooly mammoth. So far scientists have pieced together the mammoth’s genetic code through some well-preserved hair. Also they have recreated the mammoth’s blood using DNA found in some fossilized bones.
There are some problems with trying to recreate the wooly mammoth. First they would have to inject the DNA into an empty elephant egg. Then scientists will try tricking the egg to grow and divide just like any other embryo. Next they have to implant the egg into an elephant mother, which will be acting as a surrogate mother. If the surrogate mother doesn’t reject the egg then it will take about 600 days for the baby mammoth to fully mature. Hopefully we will have a baby wooly mammoth in our midst!
I chose this article because not only is it so cool to know that we could actually see a wooly mammoth, but this will contribute to the world in so many ways. I think mammoths are kind of cool because they are almost like elephants but a lot hairier. I really don’t know anything about mammoths except for that they are extinct. So this article gave me information on what mammoths are like. That is why I chose this article.

This article is about the monarch butterfly.They came from the coldier reigions in North America. Now they are on their way to California or Mexico. This could take almost 2,000 miles each way.
'' First and foremost, it is very unusual for insects to migrate - That's because most of them do not have a lifespan long enough to extend from one season to the next. In fact, even amongst the Monarch butterflies who live between 6-8 weeks, it is only the ones that are born around September and October that make that trek.''
At the end of migration the butterflies that leave, are not the same ones that come back.It is the kids or sometimes grandkids who come back.
I want to know why they migrate and how long they migrate. Hope you enjoy my article.BYE

The article is "Master the Force to Explode Watermelons."
Two teens use air compressor, pin pong balls and a mind sensor to make the watermelon explode just by thinking about it.
The sensor would pick up the brain waves and make the air compressor activate and make the ball move enough to expode the watermelon.
The teens are not going to market the device, they just wanted to see if they could make it work with just their mind.
It might be something good to use in the military or police department, so the person would not have to be close to the explosion.
