I figured that the wave of awesome-stuff-made-with-hacked-Kinects had crested by now, but the hits keep on coming. The latest: "Soak and Dye in Light," an installation by Korean "creative computing" collective Everyware that uses the Kinect to turn a giant spandex screen into a digital canvas you can paint with your fingers.

Pattern survival versus gene survival | KurzweilAI | Augmented Reality & The Internet of Beings + Things | Scoop.it

What does a self-consistent, intelligent and capable person do? Which goals are so sound, so promising and so exciting that you can allow those goals to fully motivate you? Which goals can you embrace in the knowledge that you stand on a firm foundation, that your thinking is clear, and that you can be a pioneer to excel in a significant part of a vast new future?

Will virtual worlds spark a new world order?

Sys­tems of vir­tual real­ity have been built on new capa­bil­i­ties from mobile tech­nolo­gies, dis­trib­uted com­put­ing, and online gam­ing. This makes it pos­si­ble for large num­bers of peo­ple to oper­ate in a vir­tual world that encom­passes the real one. Alter­nate cur­ren­cies and new man­age­ment tools allow for the emer­gence of a new social order that syphons resources away from the old economy.

Metamemory and the User Experience | UX Magazine

Metamemory and the User Experience | UX Magazine | Augmented Reality & The Internet of Beings + Things | Scoop.it

An article published in Science Magazine in June provides evidence that the Internet has become an “external part” of our memory systems. Rather than remembering information, we seem to have “outsourced” this effortful task to an entity other than ourselves.

On the face of it, this is not an astounding finding in that psychologists have demonstrated for over 30 years that we use outside sources, such as family or team members, to supplement our less-than-perfect memories.

Supercomputer Predicts Revolution | Singularity Hub | Augmented Reality & The Internet of Beings + Things | Scoop.it

A new type of software has been shown to predict revolutions by mining news reports around the world. Retrospectively mining the news for the past 30 years the software indicates points at which the likelihood for a revolution is high. When put to the test – bingo! – the software showed spikes just before the recent Egyptian and Libyan upheavals.

Dutch PlantLab Revolutionizes Farming: No Sunlight, No Windows, Less Water, Better Food | Singularity Hub

Dutch PlantLab Revolutionizes Farming: No Sunlight, No Windows, Less Water, Better Food | Singularity Hub | Augmented Reality & The Internet of Beings + Things | Scoop.it

Dutch agricultural company PlantLab wants to change almost everything you know about growing plants. Instead of outdoors, they want farms to be in skyscrapers, warehouses, or underground using hydroponics or other forms of controlled environments. Instead of sunlight they use red and blue LEDs. Water? They need just 10% of the traditional requirements. At every stage of their high tech process, PlantLab monitors thousands of details (163,830 reports per second!) with advanced sensors to create the perfect environment for each individual type of crop. In short, they create a high tech ‘plant paradise’. See it in action in the videos below, followed by plenty of pics of their tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, etc. PlantLab’s revolutionary approach to agriculture may be able to leverage math and science to create a better food supply for the world’s escalating population.

Swarm robots attack your bookshelf, win AAAI Oscar

Swarm robots attack your bookshelf, win AAAI Oscar | Augmented Reality & The Internet of Beings + Things | Scoop.it

EngadWhat's more frightening than a swarm of robots? An award-winning swarm of robots trained to raid your library -- that's what. This SciFi-worthy outfit of mechanized literature swindlers, known as the "Swarmanoid," landed themselves the Best Video Award at this week's AAAI (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence) conference in San Francisco. The video in question features the mixed bag of eye-bots, hand-bots and foot-bots in an Oceans 11-style bookcase heist. Of course, there are probably easier ways to reach the top shelf (e.g. a ladder), but none that get us thinking about the end times quite like this.get...

2011: Self-Assembling Dynamic Networks And Boundary-less Tribalism

2011: Self-Assembling Dynamic Networks And Boundary-less Tribalism | Augmented Reality & The Internet of Beings + Things | Scoop.it

"Self-assembling dynamic networks" is one phrase we should all memorise to prepare ourselves and to understand 2011. This phrase encapsulates the defining aspect of both the year ahead and the years to come, as we embark on the second decade of the 21st century.
Whether we act as individuals, families, communities, businesses, government departments or organizations, there can be no question that we have to listen, learn and adapt according to the massive paradigm shift created by self-assembling dynamic networks and their by-product: boundary-less tribalism.
