INSIDE MOUSEY

How a mild-mannered computer mouse becomes a fast, freewheeling photon-hog.

Analog (non-optical) mice pick up movements of the ball with two axles that turn gear-like wheels. The teeth rotate between IR emitters and recep¬tors that capture the flickering shadows to read horizontal and vertical directions and speeds. Reverse-biasing the diode emitters turnsthem into Mousey’s “eyes.”

Mousey’s bumper (from one of its buttons) empties a capacitor-full of current across a relay, temporarily crossing the motors’volt¬ages and throwing Mousey into reverse.

Randy Sargent’s Herbie (below) was the first LM386-based bot. It finished last in the 1996 Robothon’s line-following race, but went on

Safety of ultrasound in pregnancy

As it is known, is safe in the world there is nothing. This truism applies fully and ultrasound. Ultrasound, unfortunately, is not an entirely innocuous environmental factor. With high intensity and high cumulative doses of radiation, ultrasonic waves can damage the genetic apparatus of living cells, and even physically destroy them. With regard to the fetus it is fraught with gross deformities and even death — and that has been proven in experiments on embryos of animals in the 70-ies of the last century. Of course, such a dose and intensity have never been used in a standard ultrasound
