John O’Ceallaigh It’s not hyperbole to say that London is home to many of the world’s best museums. Venues such as the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum , Science Museum and Design Museum can justly lay claim to being the best in their field and most of them are free too. But with so many famous institutions dominating the itineraries of tourists, it can be easy to overlook London’s cornucopia of lesser-known gems. With that in mind, I’ve rounded up 50 of the best unusual London museums for people looking for alternatives to the big hitters. I’ve termed them “unusual” not because their subject matter is weird – although, sometimes, that is the case – but because they’re not the usual choice for visitors to the city. The building was once the home and studio of the Victorian artist Lord Frederic Leighton and it remains a showcase for his spectacular artefacts.

There are different types of fingerprint readers on the market, but the basic idea behind each is to measure the physical difference between ridges and valleys. All the proposed methods can be grouped into two major families: The procedure for capturing a fingerprint using a sensor consists of rolling or touching with the finger onto a sensing area, which according to the physical principle in use optical, ultrasonic, capacitive or thermal captures the difference between valleys and ridges.

When a finger touches or rolls onto a surface, the elastic skin deforms. The quantity and direction of the pressure applied by the user, the skin conditions and the projection of an irregular 3D object the finger onto a 2D flat plane introduce distortions, noise and inconsistencies in the captured fingerprint image. These problems result in inconsistent and non-uniform irregularities in the image. The representation of the same fingerprint changes every time the finger is placed on the sensor plate, increasing the complexity of any attempt to match fingerprints, impairing the system performance and consequently, limiting the widespread use of this biometric technology.

In order to overcome these problems, as of , non-contact or touchless 3D fingerprint scanners have been developed. By modelling the distance between neighboring points, the fingerprint can be imaged at a resolution high enough to record all the necessary detail. However, a MythBusters episode revealed that this doesn’t work at least with the scanners available to the program.

But Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman found a way to convert fingerprints lifted from the hand to a photographic form that the sensor would accept. For obvious reasons, they refuse to reveal the technique. Latent detection Use of fine powder and brush to reveal latent fingerprints Fingerprints dusting of a burglary scene In the s criminal investigators in the United States first discovered the existence of latent fingerprints on the surfaces of fabrics, most notably on the insides of gloves discarded by perpetrators.

The basis of the traditional fingerprinting technique is simple.

George lives at home, and travels by train to his clerkship with a Birmingham solicitors firm. His daily commute inspires him to write a modest treatise on Railway Law for the Man in the Train. But then the Great Wyrley Outrages begin: Worse yet, he is disqualified as a solicitor. Upon his release, George pleads his case by letter to Sir Arthur.

The author skillfully portrays the enthusiastic, over-confident Sir Arthur; in one telling scene Doyle meets his match in his confrontation with Captain Anson, the chief constable at the time. Unfortunately for George, Captain Anson is not alone in his opinions. This brilliantly-crafted novel sets its own measured pace, but the steadfast reader is amply rewarded.

The book provides a fascinating portrayal of Arthur Conan Doyle, and the characterization of George Edalji is equally engaging. Hannah has arranged to meet her mentor, Peter Weill, at the Games, where he tells her he has a package for her that will convince the rest of the world that the Nazis are a threat to world peace, but he dies before he can reveal the location of the package. Calling on her old friends for help, Hannah is disconcerted to find that solid Germans who resisted Nazi propaganda two years earlier have been drawn into acceptance of their sons joining the Hitler youth, viewing a former threat to their family as a wholesome activity.

Berserk is a Dark Fantasy series with Cosmic Horror Story undertones, but The Golden Age Arc — several volumes long flashback in the middle of the series — is a Low Fantasy that’s very close to Historical Fantasy , while still having some small elements of Dark Fantasy , with the main character having escaped from Heroic Fantasy. My Lovely Ghost Kana is a heartwarming, tear-jerking, Slice of Life Porn with Plot love story that puts the titular Magical Girlfriend ‘s suicide at the beginning, featuring characters who all have Dark And Troubled Pasts that are utterly ignored as the story deconstructs the angst right the hell out of them, while celebrating The Power of Love without a trace of narm.

And it’s better than it sounds. Pretty much every genre except for fantasy has been covered during the manga’s run. There’s been everything from romance to Body Horror to wrestling. The Spin-Off Magic Kaito which is canonically in the same world actually does have magic. Both real and fake meaning that while Conan doesn’t cover it alone the world as a whole does.

When it launched, it was a Slice of Life Romantic Comedy involving magical beings, having harem antics without being a Harem Series , and occasionally putting the entire Slice of Life concept on the shelf to go save the world from fantasy villains. Now, it’s recognized as the Trope Maker for the Magical Girlfriend , but the elements of fantasy adventure are still far more strongly present than in your average Magical Girlfriend series.

Gakkou Gurashi is essentially this, initially seems like an innocent schoolgirl genre in the first half however, in the second half it turns into a Zombie Apocalypse themed anime. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure really likes to hop from one genre to another with every arc, going from horror thriller story, to globe-trotting adventure story, to detective story, to gangster story, to prison story, to racing story.

Even the fight scenes involving Stands often get more cerebral than your typical action scenes, and feel more like mysteries than straight up fights. The only thing you can really pin down about Excel Saga is that it’s a comedy, since the series switches genres every episode.

SHARE Although studying creativity is considered a legitimate scientific discipline nowadays, it is still a very young one. In the early s, a psychologist named J. Guilford was one of the first academic researchers who dared to conduct a study of creativity. He challenged research subjects to connect all nine dots using just four straight lines without lifting their pencils from the page. Today many people are familiar with this puzzle and its solution. In the s, however, very few were even aware of its existence, even though it had been around for almost a century.

If you have tried solving this puzzle, you can confirm that your first attempts usually involve sketching lines inside the imaginary square. The correct solution, however, requires you to draw lines that extend beyond the area defined by the dots. Only 20 percent managed to break out of the illusory confinement and continue their lines in the white space surrounding the dots.

The symmetry, the beautiful simplicity of the solution, and the fact that 80 percent of the participants were effectively blinded by the boundaries of the square led Guilford and the readers of his books to leap to the sweeping conclusion that creativity requires you to go outside the box. The idea went viral via s-era media and word of mouth, of course. Overnight, it seemed that creativity gurus everywhere were teaching managers how to think outside the box.
