Robin Good's curator insight, December 16, 2013 11:44 AM



Evver is a free web app which allows you to create music slideshows with extreme ease. You simply select your favorite pictures (from 10 to 100), you pick up a song, among the available soundtracks, and the rest is automatically done for you.


You can re-arrange the order in which the photos will be shown in the final video and delete the ones that you don't want to use and you are set to go.


Evver edits your pics in sync with the music and creates a music video that can be easily shared on any social media or embedded to your site or blog.


My comment: Very, very easy to use. The selection of music tracks that you can use is presently very limited. The final result is good, but - as you can see from my sample - not as good as it could be.

A new method of building materials using light, developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge, could one day enable technologies that are often considered the realm of science fiction, such as invisibility cloaks and cloaking devices.

Although cloaked starships won't be a reality for quite some time, the technique which researchers have developed for constructing materials with building blocks a few billionths of a meter across can be used to control the way that light flies through them, and works on large chunks all at once. Details are published today (28 July) in the journal Nature Communications.

GEN | Insight & Intelligence™: Smartphone Based Biosensors—Just What the mDiagnostician Ordered

GEN | Insight & Intelligence™: Smartphone Based Biosensors—Just What the mDiagnostician Ordered | Education Technology | Scoop.it
Mix-and-match peripherals on a common platform may support myriad tests.

 

f you had to pick the most compelling mHealth, or mobile health, application, you might well pick mDiagnostics—the ability to perform laboratory work outside the laboratory. mDiagnostics promises to bring on-the-spot testing to poor and remote areas where conventional tools such as microscopes, cytometers, and colorimeters are unavailable.

Mobile, off-the-grid diagnostic tools are best compact. But, beyond that, choices abound. mDiagnostic tools could be sleek, self-contained, standalone devices. Or they could be modular. For example, an mDiagnostic tool could consist of an add-on device plugged into a general-purpose platform, the smartphone.

Over the past couple of years, smartphone-based devices have been introduced by various developers. Invariably, the developers declare that the smartphone is the ultimate mDiagnosis platform. After all, they say, the smartphone is already ubiquitous. Moreover, it has computational capacity to spare, as well as a built-in camera. Finally, as a GPS-enabled communications device, a smartphone platform could readily integrate point-of-care diagnostics with public-health projects, such as mapping the spread of an infectious disease.

All of this is plausible. But it still misses what may be the strongest argument for smartphone-based diagnostics—the smartphone-centric approach efficiently deploys developer resources. This approach may lead to a thriving development ecosystem.

Curiously, the idea of cultivating a development ecosystem is seldom presented by developers. Recently, however, this idea was clearly articulated by academic researchers, in “Biosensing with cell phones,” an article that appeared in the journal Trends in Biotechnology.

Any reader willing to endure the academese will readily discern the argument’s outline: 1) If you need “apps,” you need application developers. 2) To attract the services of as many application developers as possible, use a familiar, open platform. (With such a platform, developers needn’t be hardware specialists—modularized hardware elements conform to the same standards, so they readily communicate with each other.) 3) Developers, empowered to work with any hardware configuration, may focus on their “value add.”

This last point, of course, is where things get interesting. It is, most commonly, where developers address the needs of specific market segments. In mDiagnostics, it is where developers may focus on particular kinds of tests, which typically rely on specialized biosensors.

Needless to say, no standalone mDiagnostic device could ever stand in for an entire laboratory. Instead, multiple devices would have to stand in for multiple pieces of equipment, each dedicated to a different kind of test. Here, again, the modular approach makes sense. It lets mDiagnostic practitioners hold onto a core device—the smartphone—while plugging in add-on devices as needed. The add-on devices may even be disposable.

Altimeter Report Refines ‘Digital Transformation’ Definition

Altimeter Report Refines ‘Digital Transformation’ Definition | Education Technology | Scoop.it

Investing in digital technologies--such as social media, mobile, big data, and the cloud--is all well and good. But doing so does not mean a company is in the midst of a “digital transformation,” according to a new Altimeter Group report. 

 

“The State Of Digital Transformation” is aimed at executives and digital strategists to help gauge where they are relative to other companies. The key finding: While 88 percent of marketers surveyed said their organizations are currently undergoing a digital transformation, just 25 percent of them have actually mapped out a key componenet of the change: their targets’ digital customer journey.

 

Altimeter defines digital transformation as the alignment of, or new investment in, technology and business models to more effectively engage digital customers at every touch point in the customer experience life cycle. According to Brian Solis, principal analyst at Altimeter, companies need to undergo a digital transformation to make it in today’s world.
