The Final Frontier In Virtual Reality? Hacking Your Muscles

The Final Frontier In Virtual Reality? Hacking Your Muscles | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Tiny bursts of electrical stimulation could help users feel walls and spaces in VR. Lopes and his team found that they could use the wearer’s own muscles against them, artificially creating a counter force, or the feeling of resistance to a physical object, by triggering the opposing muscles. The same setup can also enable the wearer to “hold” a large cube in virtual reality or press a virtual button–while using only a small wearable device hooked up to electrodes that are stuck to the user’s skin.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

There is much work being done on improving sensors to place them on watches and other wearables to measure what humans feel and how they react to real life situations. The next logical step is of course for digital systems to modify human behavior. This is a very young field of research along with exoskeletons and other devices. But it can have a huge impact to make AR, VR, healtcare and fitness applications possible.

Personal branding and the end of text: learn to express yourself with video via @forbes

Personal branding and the end of text: learn to express yourself with video via @forbes | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Each year, I share my thoughts on trends that will impact your career success. Here is part 1 of my trends for 2017 – the death of text.

OK, maybe not the death, but we’re definitely seeing a rapid replacement of the alphabet’s 26 letters, which are being nudged out by pictures – both still and moving. These trends put the spotlight on the impact of multimedia and the speed at which we are moving from text to photos and video. Build your brand in 2017 by providing a richer visual experience for your brand community. Incorporate multimedia into your communications.

My experience on creating a #visual #resume to grab attention of clients and colleagues

My experience on creating a #visual #resume to grab attention of clients and colleagues | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
LinkedIn is the de facto source of information when I look for candidates to hire or when I present myself to potential clients and colleagues. I also have a resume, a 3-page word document with text and descriptions of my experience, field of expertise, education, etc. but I thought I needed a more visual way to present who I am and what I've done.Five years ago I created a visual version of my resume as a powerpoint document and uploaded it to slideshare.To my surprise, it attracted 88000 views

Apple's iWatch Will Measure More than Time to become a wearable personal "agent"?

Apple's iWatch Will Measure More than Time to become a wearable personal "agent"? | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Using evidence and a bit of logic, I bet the iWatch will be much less a time piece and much more platform for auto-analytics and managing yourself.

Farid Mheir's insight:

I've thinking abot this for a long time: an Apple watch only makes sense if wearing it provides you with information you do not already have. The real transformation would be that an iWatch would combine all different kind of sensors and monitors and combine them with communication and applciations you find in an iphone.

You can wear a watch 24 hours a day on your skin. Because of that it can monitor in real-time your temperature, heartbeat, glucose levels, sleep patterns, position, speed, etc. and communicate all that info to services. I would expect to see an iHealth service for seniors or people suffering from diabetes, raising an alarm automatically when sensors detect an anormal situation. Or an iProtect program that would act as a generic "panic button" or "personal 911" in case of trouble.

Of course this needs to fit into a 3cm square profile and have a one-week battery capacity, but I believe these are all solvable problems. Whether they willbe solved in 2013 by Apple is the real question!
