The Architectural Wonders of Thailand’s White Temple

There are 33,000 traditional temples in Thailand. But with its majestic, otherworldly exterior, Wat Rong Khun is unlike any other site of worship. From the ghoulish heads that hang from surrounding trees, to the hands that reach for you as you cross the bridge to the main temple, every part of this site is unique. While Wat Rong Khun attracts thousands of tourists from around the world, it received negative attention when it first opened because critics said it wasn’t traditional Thai art. Yet the temple continues to stand defiantly as a symbol of Thai art for a modern world. SUBSCRIBE: This story is a part of our Planet Earth series.

Apple ArKit Augmented Reality MINECRAFT

Tutorial Coming Soon! ...Maybe. This is a little demo video of an augmented reality AR Minecraft app that I have been working on using the Apple ARkit for iPhone and Unity 3D. I love that you are able to place life size objects because the tracking with ARkit is so good. Let me know in the comments if you want to see a how to video or tutorial and I will try to make that happen. I probably won't be able to do the whole thing, but let me know what parts of this you would like to do. JOIN OUR DISCORD GROUP: The SLAM tracking that Apple offers is incredible and I cannot stop playing with it. I hate doing things that are not cross platform compatible but this Apple AR is way too good to ignore. To build this I used Xcode 9 beta, IOS 11, and the newest patch version of Unity 5.6.1p1. You also need an apple device with an A9 or A10 chip. These include: -iPhone SE -iPhone 6s -iPhone 6s Plus -iPhone 7 -iPhone 7 Plus -iPad Pro - 9.7-inch iPad 2017 IOS 11: Xcode 9: Unity (newest patch version): Unity ArKit Plugin: Music: BITWVLF - Remember Me Follow me on: Facebook: Instagram:

Air Asia Flight (Perth to KL) Shaking Violently - 359 Passengers On-Board Feared For Their Lives by : AhB3ng

Air Asia Flight (Perth to KL) Shaking Violently - 359 Passengers On-Board Feared For Their Lives

Source: 7 News Brisbane Air Asia Flight D7237 Kuala Lumpur-bound departed from Perth at around 7am (WST) on 25th June 2017 (Sunday) was forced to turn back after experiencing massive shuddering on-board the flight with hundreds of passengers fearing for their lives. According to the pilot, the left engine seized up 90 minutes into the journey. Some passengers even saw metal flying out of the engine. An explosion was heard prior to the aircraft violently shaking. Many passengers were crying and pulled out life jackets from under their seats while others were sending out messages to their loved ones preparing for the worst. Fortunately the plane managed to return to Perth airport and landed safely with all 359 passengers intact after one and a half hours of on-board trauma. Apparently the engine in question was turned off but the vibrating persisted due to windmilling. AirAsia maintains that this was a technical fault. (Jump straight to 1:20 for an animation of the plane's flight path) From commentator Andre: "Please read and upvote so others can read this.Those asking why was the engine still running and why not land a nearer airport? The engine running? It was not. Take a look at 0:17 - 0:21. That assembly was windmilling on incoming air with it's shaft probably broken. If you board planes frequently at windy airports you will notice that those blades can spin even with a 5 - 10knot wind. There's even a Youtube video that shows the fan blade assembly can be spun with 1 finger alone. If that engine was running and on power, i guarantee you it would rip apart. Next, why not a nearer airport? The plane which was 90 minutes into flight was at FL380 (38,000ft). With that amount of vibrations and uncertainty on how the airframe can cope, it's not wise to dive or make turns that will stress the airframe of the aircraft further, Perth just needs a 180deg turn and the plane can be coaxed smoothly downwards, all done with the most minimal turns. Coming in to nearer airports will need a fuel dump, which may affect the resonating frequency the damaged engine is putting on the airframe - and this can change in a very short span of time during the dump, which means, unexpected things can occour during the dive, which may affect recoverablity. Not to mention nearer airports will need multiple turns to bleed speed and get aligned. Going back to Perth also puts the aircraft over the ocean, which means there will be no land casualties should anything happen.The decision is debatable, however please be reminded it was an educated one that the pilot made in his armchair. It was not a spur of the moment decision or else he would have landed nearer with the odds above. Thank you for reading."
