Linkorama 28/10/10


SIXTH SENSE TECHNOLOGY: While checking out the TED phenomenon, I came across this amazing new technology. Imagine going to work in a crowded bus or metro and opening up your computer screen on the back of the person in front of you... or on the wall... or on the ground. And the amazing 29 year old who has invented it is planning to release it under Open Source!! Even if you are completely tech unsavvy, you have got to watch this video!!

PRAYING HANDS: This famous drawing by Albrecht Durer has a moving story of brotherly love and sacrifice behind it. Read it here. (HT: Ninans)

LATEST STANDINGS ON THE CORRUPTION FRONT: Here is the 2010 Transparency International Corruption ratings. India surprisingly is at 87. Better than I imagined considering there were 178 countries listed!! Denmark, New Zealand and Singapore top the list and Somalia is at the bottom.(HT: TC)

THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS AIRPORTS: Here is a list of the world's 7 most dangerousairports (and Mangalore does not figure among them). And this is a video of the St. Martin airport in the Carribean. It appears like you could jump up and touch the plane!! Scary!!
