(via A weird copper shrub keeps this computer totally silent | The Verge)

Silent Power’s tiny computer doesn’t even really look like a computer. It looks more like a pot with some strange hedge growing out the top of it. But in fact, the whole package is half computer, half heat sink, with an oversized copper blob on its top side being used to cool the entire machine, allowing it to run without fans. It isn’t a weak computer either: though it’ll be inside of a small package (just 6.3 inches on its longest side), Silent Power says that it’ll include a Core i7 Haswell processor and a discrete graphics card from Nvidia.

The heat sink on top is a metal foam, which isn’t a new innovation, but is something you’re more likely to read about in a scientific paper than a spec sheet. The Silent Power PC isn’t ready to ship just yet though. It’s effectively being crowdfunded, with its manufacturer taking preorders for it that will only be filled if it sells 45,000 euro (just over $60,000 USD) worth of machines. If you’re in the market for a somewhat nontraditional computer, you can try to get it built over at Silent Power.

Math is Beautiful, math is the absolute truth and that makes it beautiful. Mathematicians even go so far as calling it an art form. 

mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty — a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show - Bertrand Russel 

One of the most amazing equations, in my opinion, is the Lorentz factor, 

Virtually all of the mathematics behind Einsteins theory or special relativity can be reduced back to this one, simple equation. basically, these few lines describe exactly what happens when you travel close to the speed of light, and the fact that it is as simple and short as it is, is beautiful.

I’m a Galicia photographer. Usually you can find me in my country, trying to know how I am with a camera on my hand, and sometimes I’m traveling arround the world looking for myself…
