    What if every soldier could run a four-minute mile? That's the goal behind 4MM, or 4 Minute Mile, a student project to create a wearable jetpack that enhances speed and agility. Working with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and a faculty mentor, Jason Kerestes is the mastermind behind 4MM. He built a prototype of the jetpack and is now testing and refining his design to be as effective as possible. The 4MM project is part of an ASU program called iProjects, which brings students and industry together to find innovative solutions to real-world problems. See an overview of this year's iProjects here: http://researchmatters.asu.edu/videos/students-solve-industry-challenges-through-iprojects Produced by Alexander D. Chapin.

          Rian and Dylan cycled and surfed across Indonesia in 2009. This is the trailer to their 4 part travel documentary being released in 2010. They explored the Islands of Sumatra, Similue, Nias, Asu, Mentawai, Java and Bali, finding many world class waves in the process. The DVD includes animated maps, 18 months of preparation before leaving and then action packed footage of day to day life on the bikes, meeting interesting people and exploring regions of the Indonesian Archipelago. From volcanoes in the Sumatran highlands to the awsome power of Lagundri Bay, Nias, you will get to see Indonesia through the eyes of two young Australian bodyboarders.

            Arizona State University is rising to the challenge, taking on many of the big issues of our time. Challenges of the environment, social justice, quality education, the economy, health and cultural diversity. On March 3, ASU revealed this impactful video to more than 650 alumni and community supporters at the Founder’s Day event. This is only the beginning. We invite everyone to rise to the challenge with us. Watch the video and share it with everyone you know.

                Created by Muharrem Yildirim and David Tinapple, 2012 @ ASU school of Arts, Media +Engineering. http://ame.asu.edu/ This interactive art piece involves video projected onto a freely spinning wheel which the users can touch and rotate by hand. We wanted to create a physically tangible, interactive, digital object. We focused our attention on the physical act of spinning or tumbling an object. We wondered what would be the implications of the computer knowing the exact rotation, position and velocity of a spinning object. If the computer is aware of the position and motion of its projection screen/object in real-time, then the object can be accurately projection mapped onto as it spins. We set out to create a DIY optical rotary encoder (seen in the video). This optical encoder is comprised of a pattern of black and white strips printed radially which carry a digital encoding of the rotation angle. We used an 8 bit pattern, which allows for a resolution of 256 points per revolution of the wheel. This optical pattern is read using a standard webcam and interpreted using custom software. This allows us to read the position of the wheel using no moving parts. In creating the wheel itself, we use a special bearing mechanism that moves with very little friction, allowing the wheel to spin freely and very smoothly for long periods of time. Finally we project onto the wheel a physical simulation of simple objects "tumbling" inside the wheel. When an object collides with another object, we trigger the synthesized sound of this collision. The resulting system is quite simple at first glance. But upon interacting with it, and spinning the wheel, it comes to life. The physics feel right, and match the motion of the wheel. Gravity seems natural and honest. And the sounds seem to give the basic shapes a sense of solidity and resonance. The piece tends to attract people to it and can become hypnotic.

                  In his new book, “A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather than Nothing,” Arizona State University professor Lawrence M. Krauss explains how recent revolutions in our understanding of physics and cosmology allow modern science to address the question of why there is something rather than nothing, and more importantly, why this is a scientific question rather than a philosophical or theological one.
