FutureStarrA Portal Connecting Two European Cities It Looks Like Stargate
Have you ever watched Star Trek or Stargate? You know how amazing it would be to step through a portal connecting two places - but unfortunately, that will have to wait for some time.
But in the meantime, a group of engineers has devised an innovative way to bring people together. They've set up two portals in Vilnius, Lithuania and Lublin, Poland as platforms for social interaction.
Science fiction and fantasy movies such as Star Trek, Doctor Strange, and Stargate often feature portals into another world that offer a glimpse into another reality. Unfortunately, these are just make-believe; however, there is now an actual portal connecting two European cities.
Portals were installed in Vilnius, Lithuania's capital, and Lublin, Poland. Though these cities are over 370 miles apart, they can communicate with each other via a large screen and cameras that beam live images to each other in real time.
According to its creators, the portal serves to "rethink the meaning of unity." It encourages people to think beyond tribalism, lack of empathy and a limited view of the world. The project was spearheaded by Benediktas Gylys Foundation in collaboration with Vilnius Gediminas Technical University's Creativity & Innovation Centre "LinkMenu fabrikas" and Crossroads Centre for Intercultural Creative Initiatives.
Right now, there's a lot going on in the world that can make it challenging to connect with others. That's why two technologically-forward Stargate-inspired portals were created - they make connecting easier than ever before!
These bridges are situated near train stations in both cities and broadcast live video from each other, allowing people to observe what happens in the other's city. Engineers from the technical university spent five years creating this project.
This portal isn't a one-off: Its creators hope to build more of these in different cities throughout Europe and beyond, encouraging people to suggest where they would like one in their hometown.
In our increasingly globalized world, being able to stay connected in real-time to someone else can be quite tempting. As such, these portals have become popular with both tourists and residents alike.
They've been placed in places where people congregate, making them easily visible and providing a great opportunity to break down digital barriers. At this moment, these signs seem especially appropriate.
At Vilnius train station, a circular concrete structure with a "portal center" was unveiled to allow people from the city to see Lublin, 600 km away. Constructed by GoVilnius development agency with the hope that it will motivate people to communicate with those in their surrounding community, this development agency hopes to inspire communication between all residents.
The portal looks like a virtual circular door and features a large screen and cameras to transmit live images between two cities via the internet. It was designed by engineers from LinkMenu fabrikas at Vilnius Gediminas Technical University; its shape resembling that of time itself and inviting people to "travel" and experience reality on the other side. Furthermore, its minimal design and aesthetics help reflect an imagined future city.
Though it may seem strange to find a portal in such an isolated country, Vilnius has something special for those who are fed up with pandemic travel restrictions and want to connect with new people from near and far. The project is called PORTAL and Benediktas Gylys is its founder.
This project is the first of its kind worldwide and was developed with the Benediktas Gylys Foundation, Crossroads Center for Intercultural Creative Initiatives and Lublin and Vilnius city halls in collaboration.
For beer enthusiasts in Warsaw, there are several breweries to choose from and many varieties carry EU Traditional Speciality Guaranteed labels. Try Perla Chmielowa (Hop Pearl), a local pilsner-type lager made with rye which has long been part of Polish beer production.
History buffs will love Lublin, as it was once the capital of Poland's Jewish community and a center for Jewish scholarship. Though much of Lublin was destroyed during WWII, there are still plenty of reminders that this once vibrant city once served as an important destination for Jews.
Stargates are technologically advanced large rings that enable interplanetary and intergalactic travel through wormholes. This enables objects to move between planets in their home galaxy as well as across galaxies. Built out of naquadah material, which weighs 64,000 pounds (24,400 kilograms), stargates offer unparalleled accessibility for travelers around the world.
Stargates were first constructed by the Ancients millennia ago in the Milky Way galaxy and remain active today, spanning multiple galaxies such as Pegasus, Ida, Sagittarian and Orion. Furthermore, they placed thousands of Stargates across thousands of worlds throughout space to facilitate communication between races - which continues to this day.
At first, SG-1 believed there to be only two Stargates between Earth and Abydos. But soon it was discovered there are numerous Stargates on planets in both Pegasus and Milky Way galaxies, as well as an extensive set of valid coordinates engraved in Abydos' ruins which enabled Earth's original Stargate to lock onto its address for the first time.
Stargates utilize a special system of coordinates that are dialed into it, creating an unbreakable wormhole between them and their destination. These coordinates, commonly referred to as "symbol addresses", are written as ordered strings of nine symbols with six forming co-ordinates and the ninth serving as the point of origin - easily plottable on a map.
Once the correct symbols are dialed, the Stargate will open a wormhole through its event horizon, sending travelers through space where they will be dematerialized and reconstructed on the other side. Unlike ordinary spacecraft, however, this gateway remains open as long as matter or energy passes through it at an average speed of 3.2 seconds.
Due to this stable, unchanging wormhole, travelers will experience zero gravity upon exiting and be frozen like they have just come from a blizzard. This chilling sensation has been described in both original film and Stargate SG-1 episodes as being similar to being on an exciting rollercoaster ride.
There is an unusual portal connecting two European cities that looks like Stargate but instead invites creatures from another planet through. It is simply a large screen streaming live video footage from the other side as part of an initiative to promote tourism between the countries - believed to be the first ever such structure.
Two towering structures, about twice the height of a person, stand in the central squares of Vilnius and Lublin. They use internet-connected cameras to broadcast real-time images from one city to the other and enable people on both sides to see what's going on across town.
Europe is undertaking an amazing and ambitious endeavor: using technology to connect cities. This initiative is part of their overall effort to make cities smarter and greener, with the EU fully committed to placing technology at its center.
Though technologies are important, how they're employed is even more significant. That is why the European Commission is now focusing on issues like data privacy and protecting digital rights.
Technology can be leveraged in a smarter manner to enhance city services, facilitate teleworkers and digital nomads finding work, enable improved public transportation services, increase safety levels and reduce carbon emissions.
It can also be used to give citizens more insight into what's going on in the world around them and how that impacts their lives. This is especially helpful for those in developing nations who desire a greater say in their own development.
Technology has made some remarkable advancements, such as making communication, sharing data and connecting easier than ever. This has tremendous implications for both individuals and businesses alike.
Data sharing across borders offers many advantages, such as reduced costs, greater customer satisfaction and fewer security risks. It can also promote more efficient collaboration, improved communications and greater productivity.
But there are also potential drawbacks to our growing reliance on technology. It can be a major source of pollution, hinder human interaction with others, and damage the environment. Therefore, regulation and monitoring the use of technology must be strictly enforced to avoid negative repercussions for society as a whole.
