How Does Chroma Work?

A white LED, specialized end cap, and a photo sensor are the three major parts of Chroma. White LED is used to project light on the object while end cap stops the surrounding light. LEED bounce back the exact color of light to photo-sensor where light receptor accepts it. Primary red, blue, and green colors process the color and give code color as an output.

Distinguishing Features

Chroma can display colors in only CIE L*a*b, sRGB, and HEX values while new color display systems are also in process. DeltaE 2000 is used for color comparison which is strong enough to make great comparisons. No need to wait too long as measurement time is less than a second while it can take measurement of the area up to 1.9cm^2. For iOS the color capacity is limited but it’s extremely good for other devices. The accuracy of color detection is much higher and even at high temperatures it gives 1% average difference.

EVERYDAY GADGETS WHICH ARE GIFTS FROM NASA

Published

on

NASA has developed so many tools and equipment using space technology that help the astronauts who use them as well as the average person on the street. Most of these gadgets have so infiltrated our lives that it is hard to believe that they were a part of space technology initially.

Eyeglasses

NASA might not be behind the lens which was initially invented for vision correction purposes but it very well helped develop the plastic lens which is so commonly used in the eyeglasses today. This plastic is not only safe to be used on earth but in space as well as it doesn’t shatter into small sharp pieces.

Solar Power

The solar plants that we see today making use of the energy of the sun were initially created by NASA to help them fly aircraft for longer period of time in space. The invention later trickled down to become a part of our daily life. Today solar power plants are used to not only generate electricity but to drive cars as well.

Nutritional compound in Infant formula milk

Almost 85% of the nutritional value which is found in infant formula milk is based on the research which was carried out by NASA on the benefits of algae. It helped them discover sources of energy which were later used to develop infant formula milk. The compound helps with the development of eyes and brain in humans.

LED

LEDs are such a huge part of our lives that it is difficult to see how life would have been without them once. LEDs or Light Emitting Diodes were initially created by NASA to help them grow plants in space without using any power source. The theory behind this space technology is now used to help heal patients in techniques like chemotherapy and radiation.

Water filters

The water filters we use in our homes were initially designed to help astronauts gain access to clean healthy water in space. Now, the technology is used in millions of households all over the world to make water drinkable.

These are just some of the many ways in which space technology has developed things that are now a major part of our lives. For more details on what is new in space technology, don’t forget to follow our magazine.

TAKING iPHONES TO SPACE

Published

on

Scientists have long been working to bring on board commercial products to facilitate the astronauts who are currently working on the international space station. The purpose is to make the lives of these scientists much more convenient and homely. Since June 2012, NASA has been working to send consumer edge products up in space for the ease of these astronauts.

Things To Consider

Before NASA decides on the things that can go up in space, there are a few things they usually consider first.

Safety: To make the lives of these astronauts easier, the gadgets that are taken up in space should be safe to travel across the orbits. Obviously.

Low mass: It ensures that they are easy to handle and are not a burden to carry. And oh, it will cost less as well.

Usage: The gadgets that go up in space should serve a purpose. Gadgets should help scientists with their missions and projects.

Why take iPhones up in space?

The whole idea was initiated to help NASA cut its costs that were to be invested in designing other mini computerized gadgets that could travel in space to help with missions. Using iPhone and the products of the same family, allowed them to save money while fulfilling their missions too. After a two-year long certification program, iPhones could pass the NASA certification needed to declare them safe for space travel. The reasons below were considered:

  • Their batteries are secure and are not made of materials that would make them explode or leak in the pressures and heat of the outer space.
  • The phones didn’t give off any toxic fumes when treated with certain solvents or environment.
  • When broken, the glass of the phone would not shatter into dangerously small pieces to cut or harm the scientists there.

After clearing these and many other safety aspects, NASA gave iPhones a clearance certificate. Can you think of any other gadget which could be used up in space?
