Kexin Jin's insight:

Google Glass will be a big step in human's history, but a project will have a good side and a bad side. 40years ago people start using mobile phone there were lots people against it but after 40years basically everyone is using it. In my opinion Google Glass is the project to take us to the "new world", and in the future Google will makes something more than Glass, could be Google eyeballs or anything, they make it cause we want it.

Brain-controlled: the user interface of future health

Brain-controlled: the user interface of future health | 1012ICT | Scoop.it

Brain-computer interfaces are quickly becoming more advanced and accessible, and some of the ways they're being used are truly mind-boggling.


Why toil with the pressing of buttons or tilting of joysticks when controlling something can be as simple as thinking about it? This kind of technology may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but in reality, it’s actually been around for decades. The development of electroencephalography (EEG) technology can be traced back to the 1920′s, but it wasn’t until recently that we figured out a way to use neurofeedback to control electronic devices. Nowadays, we can use brain-computer interfaces (BCI’s) to control everything from prosthetic limbs, to robotic arms, cars, and even things as simple as your computer’s cursor.


In the past couple years, BCI technology has expanded in leaps and bounds. Not only are sensor technologies becoming more advanced, but companies like Emotiv and NeuroSky are working to make BCI headsets more affordable and available to consumers. Software development kits are available for most major EEG headsets, which means developers everywhere can tinker with the technology and help to expand its uses. Here’s a look at some of the latest developments in the world of mind control, including many you can buy today:

3 ways to make Wearable Tech actually wearable

3 ways to make Wearable Tech actually wearable | 1012ICT | Scoop.it

Wearable technology is the next new wave of technology, and it’s bound to drive a lot of the innovation in the consumer electronics industry. We can expect to see a lot more watches, glasses, fitness gadgets, and wristbands in the years to come. But bear in mind that we’re in the “brick phone” phase, or version 1.0, of wearable tech.

Kexin Jin's insight:

I like the website said "But bear in mind that we’re in the “brick phone” phase, or version 1.0, of wearable tech", it is true that we just start wearable tech and we will creat more to make our life better such as mix wearable tech and cyborg, we might can hear more sounds like bat and dolphin, or see more colour in our world.

How Google Glass could change the future | TechHive

How Google Glass could change the future | TechHive | 1012ICT | Scoop.it
Sergey Brin's live demonstration of Google Glass at the Google I/O Conference in June clearly showed that wearable, always-on, Web-connected computing technology is here now—and that it works. While such augmented-reality (AR) eyewear is in its early stages of development, future versions of the technology, whether Google's or some other company's, could lead to dramatic changes in the way we work, play, travel, and communicate.

The best killer applications for wearable AR tech involve situations where it's important that users have free use of their hands or be able to walk while using the app. The coolest apps also display data and images in a way that interacts with the real-world imagery that users see. For example a basic AR app might place information bubbles over real-world landmarks within in the frame of the glasses (it might display the name of a movie theater along with the names of movies that are starting within the next hour).

Here are some of the more exciting applications that may be coming.

Not everyone is falling into fits of paranoia over Google Glass, though. Some observers argue it could actually be a force for good.

 

Take TechCrunch’s Jon Evans’s point: “To a limited extent I actually want Google Glass surveillance, in an uneasy Pandora’s-box kind of way. I want police officers, border guards, and other authorities to be required to wear them every moment that they’re on duty, and I want that data to be available to those who report police brutality or other abuses of authority . . . I want street protestors to be videoing the authorities at all times. I do not trust the powers that be.”...

I agree with "Google Glasses represent a developmental leap in the history of data that is comparable to moving from the bicycle to the automobile." Google Glasses could be privacy threat but so does camera, PC, mobile phone. A project dont have "good" or "bad", it depends on the person who use it.

The underlying assumption of the 'evolution' of technology - this tech naturally leads to that is striking in terms of how Google Glass is framed. As if it is now natural to want to do record & stream video from a headset.

Jake Devine's curator insight, March 21, 2013 7:33 AM

Quite an interesting youtube clip on TED Talk about Neil Harbisson who was born completely color blind but has attached a device to his head which turns any colour that the device picks up into a unique audible sound frequency. As you can see on this clip, this has allowed Neil to listen to colour instead of seeing it. During the video he claims to be able to hear colours that the regular human eye cannot see and also states the he can now dream in colour thanks to this device. As seen, augmented wear such as this is rapidly evolving enabling people to do extraordinary things which they would not normally be able to do without this technology. Over the course of the next 5 to 10 years technology such as this will almost certainly see an increase thanks to the growing IT industry and public demand.
