A video recorded in November 2014 and allegedly made ​​public by the military, shows a Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker fighter jet aircraft of the Russian Air Force intercepting and chasing a P-3 Orion patrol aircraft of the Portuguese military that was flying over the Baltic Sea (scroll down for what is claimed to be an unclassified video).

According to the source that unveiled the incident, the video was shot by “one of the sensors of the P-3 Orion aircraft MPA – Maritime Patrol Aircraft – of the Portuguese Air Force during a surveillance mission over the Baltic Sea .”

In the footage, the Russian Sukhoi aircraft is seen approaching stealthily the patrol aircraft from the right side at a safe distance, slowing and matching speed before leaving to the right.

According to military experts, it is not uncommon for Russian Air Force to scramble fighter jets to identify and escort the NATO surveillance planes. On the other hand, also the Russian spy planes are frequently intercepted by NATO aircraft while crossing the airspace boundary of other countries.

This recording proves that Moscow, in turn, keeps an eye on surveillance and intelligence activities held in the region by NATO but also non-NATO states.

Portuguese Air Force operates a fleet of P-3 Orion aircraft in the 601 Squadron “Lobos” (Esquadra 601), a squadron of maritime and anti-submarine surveillance located at Beja Air Base.

The US software giant Microfost created HoloLens, a pair of glasses able to change our world by projecting holographic images (scroll down for video).

The device, which generates 3D images that overlap with the surrounding reality, resembles the ski goggles and is according to Microsoft “the first autonomous computerized holographic glasses” because they can operate without a smartphone or syncing with a PC.

The glasses are said to be released no later than the end of 2015 and expected to run the new operative system Windows 10.

Hololens screen is transparent, therefore the user is able to see everything around by contrast to virtual reality glasses that obstruct the view. That’s the reason why Microsoft uses the term “mixed reality”, ie “combined reality”, a blend of real world and “augmented reality”, that is present in simple shapes in various smartphone applications.

Microsoft says that developers can build virtual objects in a 3D space , objects that will behave like real ones when you interact with them. These objects can become 100 % real in the future and users can do their 3D printing.

The company says that the gadget can also be used in educational projects, but also as an architecture tool for visualizing 3D patterns.

This device is autonomous in operation, comes with video processor and sound unit and does not depend on a smartphone or PC. The battery lifetime remains unknown but is thought to be short due to the extensive graphics usage.
