Some patients who have received artificial hips with ceramic components have complained that the hips make a squeaking sound. The exact cause of the squeaking is unknown, but â€œstripe wearâ€ found on used ceramic parts suggests that the noise may begin when these parts rub together. The audible squeak may be the resulting harmonic vibration of the metal shell or stem.
While favorable genetics and a well-conditioned body are essential, some scientists believe that physiological changes in the brain that take place during repetitive practice at a young age may make the difference between a world-class athlete and the rest of us.
This is the final project in Alberto Cairoâ€™s 3D class I took in 2006. The assignment was to design a character that would also serve like a logo for Institution of Science Learning (ISL). The ISL was a project sponsored by the biology department at UNC-Chapel Hill. It was responsible for creating highly interactive software with multimedia that help teach biology to high school students.
I wanted to create a robot character. I knew that it could be very cheesy, but I did it anyway. After doing a couple of sketches, I came up with something I liked. I named my robot eDeot.
It took me about one night to model and texture the character. I still remember how I started around midnight and finished right before it was due in the next morning. I was pretty happy about how the project turned out. While creating the character guide, I think managed to give the robot a distinct character.
