The word extreme when comes to your mind then your mind only thinks about the things which are supreme in level and no one can beat them. So here we are going to talk about some of the world’s most extreme creatures and things:
World’s most toughest exam: Master Sommelier Diploma Exam, this is the most toughest exam in the world. It consist of three stages namely theory, serving and blind tasting. This is an exam of Expert Winemakers. This exam is organized by an educational institution named the Court of Master Sommeliers established in April 1977. It helps to improve the quality of the beverages. Around the world 274 people have earned its Master Diploma degree which is the highest level.
World’s fastest car: Bugatti chiron sports 300 comes with 1200 hp and torque of 1500 nm and acceleration from 0-100 in 2.5 sec. It is the greatest success of its time. There is a 16 cylinder engine with the ventilation by two NACA ducts in the roof.
World’s most expensive fruit: Densuke Watermelon in Japan. It ends up to 4500$ one piece. This Melon grows only in the area of Hokkaido, Japan and this has a crunchy texture and is sweet than other melons sold elsewhere. Auction of this fruit happens in June and if the demand is higher the price can go up to 6000$.
World’s deadliest plant: Aconitum also known as Aconite, wolf’s bane, women’s bane, queen of poison, etc. these are perennial plants which are native to the mountains of Northern Hemisphere. These contain alkaloids which are present in stem and tubers. Aconitine is a potent Neurotoxin and Cardiotoxin.
World’s most extreme airport: Tenzing-Hillary airport it is located in a small town of Lukla which is in Eastern Nepal. This airport is very popular because it is the base from where the most of the people start to climb the Mount Everest. Here fighting is often between Lukla and Kathmandu during daytime. Due to heavy rains and strong winds the flights are often cancelled or postponed. the runway is of 570×30 m with a gradient of 11.7%. Airlines here are
- Nepal air – Kathmandu
- Sita air – Kathmandu
- Summit – Kathmandu
This airport was built in 1964 by Sir Edmund Hillary.

Anyone seeking a career in this field and willing to strive for a high level of education will be quickly accepted in this constantly growing, high-paying industry.
Human Evolution: Bionic Eye
As constantly evolving species humans are redefining their own evolution by interconnecting the natural and synthetic world. Bionic technology is the major pay role that is inter-winding Human-Machine interface. Today let us know about one of the applications of this bionic technology; Visual Prosthesis or Bionic eye.
A visual prosthesis or bionic eye is a medical device that is intended to restore functional vision to those who are suffering from partial and complete blindness.
eSight is one the visual prosthesis that uses a video camera to capture activities that are happening in front of the user in real time, it also allows the user to control the video processing and then through a series of advanced optics and very high resolution display it presents the video in such a way that the user can see the activities happening in front of him/her. eSight is developed for the people who are legally blind ( the person who’s vision is 20/200 is considered to be legally blind).
This is Yvonne Felix an eSight 3 user. Her eyes have a blind spot that covers 98% of her visual field. She was 8 years old when doctor realised that Yvonne has a macular degeneration, over the years she lost her vision. But thanks to eSight that helped her to restore her vision
But the product like this is useful for the people that are partially blind or legally blind.
There are over 39 million people in the world completely blind. Second sight a U.S based medical product company is working in their next generation product called the Orion® Visual Cortical Prosthesis System, an investigational device intended to bring artificial vision to individuals who are blind due to a wide range of causes, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, optic nerve injury or disease, or forms of cancer and trauma. Their previous product Argus® II, approved by the FDA for the treatment of retinitis pigmentosa, has been implanted in 350+ individuals worldwide, restoring functional, artificial vision by renewing light perception and transforming the daily experience in the majority of individuals.
Orion® Visual Cortical Prosthesis System is goggle shaped with a camera setup. One end of the goggle is connected to a Video Processing Unit (VPU) where the user can adjust parameters like zoom, contrast etc. The processed video signal is sent to the other end of the goggle where a transmitting antenna is attached that transmits the signal as well as power to the implanted or receiving antenna in the brain.
The signal then reaches an electronic circuit that decodes the signal received from the antenna and sends simulation pulses to the electrode ray which is implanted in the visual cortex between the halves of the brain. Once the implant is in position it requires a thorough and complex calibration which involves making changes in electrodes individually and mapping where the user could perceive vision. After the device is properly setup one will experience flashing lights, but later would experience vision.
The company is working with 6 blind patients to test the prototype. During the calibration of 12 month one of a patient got a seizure, from the result released in June 2019. The product is going through lots of development which may take little longer before entering the market.
The product would be a life-changing for the sightless once entered the market. Evolution of humans hasn’t stop just because we are here, we are changing the evolution by interconnecting natural and synthetic life.
