Gecko Bionic Design Window Cleaner by Olcay Tuncay Karabulut

Gecko Bionic Design Window Cleaner, just like its name suggests, this concept window cleaner was inspired by a Gecko’s ability to climb different surfaces easy. The key to the gecko’s sticking success is that tiny hair like structures called setae that can be found on the base of its toes. Those microscopic bristles have the ability to split into hundreds of nano-sized tips called septula, giving gecko adhesive abilities on dry and smooth glass or walls.

Recently, several robots for building fa├žade cleaning have been designed and developed to reduce the cost of these tasks as well as increase the safety of workers. Keeping this mind, Olcay Karabulut has designed a unique window cleaner for household and small office use.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
