Ocarina—A Instrument with Wonderful Tone

History

The ocarina belongs to a very old family of instruments, believed to date back over 12,000 years. Ocarina-type instruments have been born and played an important role in long history of song and dance in Chinese, Mesoamerican and other countries’ cultures.

In 1998, the ocarina featured in the Nintendo 64 video game The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, attracting a marked increase in interest and a dramatic rise in sales. It also featured later in other games in the The Legend of Zelda series

Classification

There are many different styles of ocarinas varying in shape and the number of holes:

Transverse style ocarinas: This is the best known style of ocarina. It has a rounded shape and is held with two hands horizontally. The most common transverse ocarinas are 10-hole and 12-hole.

Pendants style ocarinas: Divided in English Pendant and Peruvian Pendant. English Pendant ones are very small and portable, and use an English fingering system (4–6 holes). Peruvian Pendant ones, which have are 8–9 holes with designs of animals, are used for festivals, rituals and ceremonies.

Inline – These are often called a “fusion” of the pendant and transverse ocarinas. This style is known for being very small and compact, with more holes than the pendant. This allows one to ascend in pitch with the linear finger pattern rather than finger combinations.

Learn & Play

If you are a beginner of playing ocarina, a six-hole ocarina will be the best style to learn on, as it is generally inexpensive, light, and easily produce a wide range of notes with very few finger patterns.

When you get a six-hole ocarina, you can check if it comes with an instrument chart or other instructions on how to play the instrument or not. If it did, then study the chart to see which holes you have to cover to produce a specific note.

If you have learned the 6-hole ocarina and can play some song, you can try to learn about the 12-hole ocarina.

After learning, you will find that the melodious tone from this small ocarina which you play. That must be one of the greatest feelings. Play it, and enjoy it!

Funny Perler Beads

Introduction about Perler beads

Perler beads (as known as Hama beads or Nabbi beads) are plastic fusible beads. These colorful beads are usually arranged on plastic pegboards to form patterns and then fused together with a clothes iron. They can also be strung into necklaces, woven into keychains, or even assembled into three-dimensional decors.

Crafting Perler beads is a fun and inexpensive art form that inspires creativity. It can also help young children develop hand-eye coordination skills and learn color names and basic counting.

How to make it

Now we will tell you how to make a works:

Bead material

Fuse beads are made of ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer (EVA), a broad-spectrum plastic. They don’t contain harmful chemicals.

Bead sizes

The most common bead size is 5mm in diameter, suitable for both adults and children. For very young children around three years old, there’re large beads for sale with a 10mm diameter called Biggie Beads (Perler), Maxi Beads (Hama), or Jumbo Beads (Nabbi).

Bead colors

Perler beads come in solid colors, translucent colors, glitters, and glow-in-the-dark variants.

For beginners, we recommend that you buy a small bag of sorted beads to get a feel for the craft before stocking up on more colors. You might be tempted to buy those bead jars with mixed colors as the unit cost is cheaper and they offer a wide variety of color choices. Please be aware that you almost always need to sort the beads first which is quite time-consuming.

Pegboards

Pegboards have various geometric shapes, like rectangle, circular, star and other shape. If you plan to create large designs, consider investing in a few classic superpegboards which can hold 3381 beads.

Iron

In order to make batter ironing, there are some dedicated irons to use in iron Perler beads. These irons have mini size and high temperature to iron the beads.

Ironing paper

To protect your iron, always use ironing paper to cover the Perler beads. Either parchment paper or wax paper work well as reusable ironing paper.

Basic ironing technique

First of all, find a flat surface to place beads on a pegboard. Once you’re happy with the design, preheat a dry household iron to its medium or high setting. Do not add water to your iron, otherwise the steam will ruin the beads! Cover the beads with a sheet of ironing paper. Keep the iron level and slowly move it in a circular motion for about 30 seconds while pressing the beads very gently.

When you’re done with one side, put some heavy books on top of the ironing paper to even out the surface. Without the pressure, heated beads may start warping. Wait for a minute or so. Once the beads cool off, gently peel off the ironing paper. Carefully lift the now fused beads from the pegboard and flip them over. Cover the other side with the ironing paper and iron it evenly.

Zopo ZP999 Review:The First MT6595 Phone by Zopo

The Zopo ZP999 Standard version, powered with MT6595 Pre-sale for this phone were first accepted on TinyDeal online store for $399.99. Here’s our review of the Zopo ZP999 prototype and its hardware.

The Zopo ZP999 standard version continues the classic design sported by the Zopo ZP998 with many similarities from the size to the way the buttons are set. But the battery has enlarged to 2,700mAh, also they’re interchangeable. However, the SIM slots were changed.  Zopo ZP998 has one big SIM slot and one small one, while the Zopo ZP999 standard version has two micro card slots and has support for 4G LTE networks. The two slots overlap each other. The Zopo ZP999 standard version is also NFC-supported, plus HotKnot, smart wake, OTG, accelerometer and hall sensor integrated As a result, this is a phone aimed at the high-end market, and so, it is no surprise that its price is much higher than Zopo ZP998.

Powered on the device, probably thanks to the LTPS technology, we found that the screen display is much nicer than the same resolution on ZP998. Especially the black color presents very deep and true, and you will not find any light leaks on the edge of the screen. Handing on ZP999 feels comfortable, the thin bezel brings an excellent visual enjoyment, the only pity is that a thin dark bezel will be keep in eyes when the screen is on.

ZP999 packs with 5MP front camera and 14MP back camera, when we started the test the day had been turned to dusk, so we firstly took some night shots. It is notable that the shutter has a little delayed, but the night shots didn’t disappoint us, with or without flash light, it still keeps well.

The quality of the photos taken by ZP999 is great. They are very clear whether they are taken indoors or outdoors. The colors are also a bit more natural.

One of the ZP999’s most interesting features is its MediaTek octa-core processor, using a mix of ARM Cortex-A17 and low-power Cortex-A7 cores and paired with 3GB of RAM, will allow the phone to easily outperform competing handsets.

We found there could be some truth to this claim. During our hands-on, the ZOpo ZP999 moved between windows and open applications smoothly and stutter-free, and proved capable of opening multiple content-rich websites in the native browser app hassle free.

This processor has received more than 42000 points in the newest Antutu benchmark test.

Unlike most MTK smartphones, ZP999’s audio decoding chip seems much better, the sound quality with earphone is pure and clear, but the speaker is not very loud when calling rings.

Battery life performs well with the 2,700mAh battery, the only shortage is you may need to charge it for about 3hours to be full.
