Another One of Saturn's Moons May Have a Global Ocean | #Space #Water

Another One of Saturn's Moons May Have a Global Ocean | #Space #Water | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
The evidence is mounting that our solar system is rife with oceans. Last week, scientists reported that Pluto could have an insanely deep liquid water swimming pool beneath its surface, and on Monday, NASA revealed new evidence for geyser activity on icy Europa. Now, another frozen moon is poised to join the club of outer space scuba retreats: Dione.

SNAP SPECTACLES:
Snapchat stellt Sonnenbrille mit Kamera vor
Snapchat hat eine Sonnenbrille mit eingebauter Kamera vorgestellt, die auf Knopfdruck zehn Sekunden lange Filmschnipsel erstellt und mit dem Smartphone synchronisiert. Der Blickwinkel der Snapchat Spectacles soll dem menschlichen Sehen entsprechen.
Snapchat benennt sich in Snap um und bringt mit den Snap Spectacles Sonnenbrillen mit einer Kamera im Bügel auf den Markt, mit der kurze Videos aus der Perspektive des Trägers aufgenommen werden können. Diese werden über WLAN oder Bluetooth mit dem Smartphone (Android/iOS) synchronisiert und in der Rubrik Snapchat Memories der Snapchat-App gespeichert. Von dort aus können sie auch manuell online gestellt werden.

The hopes and headaches of Snapchat’s glasses | #Privacy #Ethics 

The hopes and headaches of Snapchat’s glasses | #Privacy #Ethics  | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Snapchat is the only company cool enough to possibly dismantle the Google Glass stigma. Awkward, useless, and a threat to privacy are how many think of computers you wear on your face. Can Snapchat show off the masterful marketing and smooth execution required to produce a product that won’t die on stores shelves or in a desk drawer?

To quickly recount the basics, a video of Snapchat’s new camcorder sunglasses leaked last night. Business Insider reported it, so the company rushed out the news with a Wall Street Journal piece that was planned for Monday.

Snapchat is renaming its corporate self to Snap Inc, and launching its $130 Spectacles this fall in limited release. They’ll be one-size-fits all in black, teal, or coral colors. Spectacles let you tap the glasses’ rim to instantly record 10 seconds of video, three taps to record a maximum of 30 seconds, with a light on the front alerting people you’re recording.

The video is captured with an 115-degree wide view lens in a circular format that can be watched full-screen on a phone in any orientation. The video is stored on the device and can be wirelessly offloaded to a phone over Wifi or Bluetooth so users can edit and share via Snapchat later. Spectacles’ battery should last a day, and you can get up to four full recharges from the portable charging case.

Google Glass Is Dead, Long Live Snapchat Spectacles | #Privacy 

Google Glass Is Dead, Long Live Snapchat Spectacles | #Privacy  | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
It seems like it was ages ago that Google Glass was the future that nobody wanted. The wearable tech had at least one bad design flaw—it seemed to get its early adopters punched in the face because people didn’t like the camera being pointed at them. Now, Snapchat thinks people are finally ready for glasses-mounted personal recording devices.

Snapchat is betting that it wasn’t so much the fear of being assaulted that killed Google Glass; it’s just that people didn’t want to pay $1500 for the privilege. The millennial-approved social network is jumping into the hardware game with its $130 “Spectacles.” Rather than trying to do everything a smartphone can, the frames will simply focus on looking “stylish” and recording 10-second bursts of circular video.

The glasses feature a fish-eye lens that captures videos at an 115-degree angle, which is closer to the eyes’ natural field of view. The user taps a button on the hinge, a ring of lights indicate to strangers that they are being filmed and a short clip is recorded. (Good luck with that.) The footage is then automatically pushed to Snapchat memories.
