How does electronic paper work?
Electronic paper, also known as e-paper or Electronic
Paper Display (EPD) is a display which imitates the
appearance of ordinary paper. Electronic paper is
portable and reusable – it can be refreshed
(electronically) and written upon millions of times.

Many different technologies are used for making e-paper.


The most commonly used e-paper consists of millions of
tiny plastic capsules which are sandwiched between two
sheets of flexible plastic. Each capsule, which is as
narrow as a human hair, contains several positively
charged white beads and negatively charged black beads
floating in a clear fluid.

When an electric voltage is applied to each of


the capsules through the circuitry embedded
underneath, the beads, due to their unlike
charges, get separated and move to the
opposite faces of the capsule. When white
beads are on top, the upper face of the
capsule appears white, thus making the
display appear white at the point where the
capsule is located. Similarly, when black
beads are on top, the display appears black at
the point. Thus, each capsule functions as a
separate pixel allowing the Amazing Facts

Who invented the yo-yo?


The yo-yo is an ancient toy, with the oldest surviving
model dating back to 500BC. Ancient Greaks made
the toy from wood, metal and terracotta. In the
Philippines, hunters used yo-yos as retractable
weapons – rocks were attached to 6.09m long thick
ropes which were hurled at wild animals. The yo-yo
derives its name from a native Filipino word meaning ‘come back’.

In the 18th and 19th century, the simple yet dynamic toy that worked on the principles of physics
became very popular in Europe and was known by various names like bandelore, quiz and
L’emigrette.

In 1928, a Filipino American named Pedro Flores opened a small toy factory in California, USA,
becoming the first person I the world to mass-produce yo-yos. The yo-yos became such a rage that
a businessman, Donald Duncan bought over Flores’ company. Doncan’s factory manufactured 3600
yo-yos in an hour, earning the town of Luck in Wisconsin, the epithet of ‘Yo-Yo Capital of the World’!

The yo-yo has undergone various innovations to make it spin faster and longer. Today, yo -yo
competitions are held all over the world.

What are barnacles?


If you have been to the sea coast you might have seen
barnacles. Many a barefoot runner on the seashore finds
his foot lacerated when he accidentally steps on a
barnacle.

Barnacles, lie crabs and lobsters, their distant cousins,


are members of the phylum Arthropoda, the largest and
most diverse group of animals on earth. Barnacles alone
account for more than 1200 known species. Some are
fresh water inhabitants while a few live as parasites on
other animals. Some of them, like the acorn barnacle,
grow directly on a hard rocky surface while others like
the goose barnacle attach to it by means of a stalk.

Life as a barnacle is not easy. A marine barnacle living in the inter-tidal area is alternately lashed by
fierce waves one moment and roasted by the sun the next. When exposed to the sun, barnacles
stop all activities and concentrate on keeping themselves moist. They live in shells made of calcium
carbonate, (the substance found in marble and chalk) and rely on the tides to bring their food.
Barnacles have six pairs of legs that form a type of net to filter plankton which is their food.
