How do you make an artificial leg for a flightless bird? You ask a movie studio special effects unit.
Weta did its magic for wellington Zoo recently and used the techniques they use for special effects to let one of New Zealands endangered birds A brown kiwi called Tahi an artificial leg
The hope is that if He can walk, He can breed. And with our national bird on the endangered list we needed to do all we could to help Tahi (maori for One) do his bit to breed more kiwis.
The BBC have a full version of the story here
And for the record, tha daylight footage is not normal, Kiwi's are usually Nocturnal.
Its the feel good Tech story for the day, so maybe molly might feel better after reading this, and talk again.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
