Amazing! How to synchronize 5 metronomes?

Synchronisation of 5 coupled metronomes done in Lancaster University, Physics Dep, Nonlinear dynamics and medical physics group. Watch the video carefully and try to understand the science behind it.

And the explanation. Here you go: metronomes (or "pendula") when on table, oscillate with random phases, since that is how they started and they are "uncoupled" (no energy/information flows from one to other so they do not "know" each other.) When they are all together on the cans, notice that the cans themselves oscillate little, providing coupling/information crossover. which forces "synchronization" in periodic systems (discovered by Huygens in 17th century).

Nano-Technology For Gadget Protection

Latest developments in nano-technology introduces us with new amazing products. One of the most popular of such products for this year is ZAGG's invisibleSHIELD. It is an ultra-tough, transparent patented film which is designed to precisely match the contours of every device, providing unbeatable scratch protection.

Actually, its story extends to military purposes. The military grade invisibleSHIELD film was originally developed for the U.S. Military to protect helicopter blades from dust, dirt and debris.

This is exceptionally clear and virtually indestructible product, you can show off your gadget and use it without fear of scratching.

Obviously, the best part is that the ultra-thin film is only 0.2 mm thick and will not add bulk to your device.
