The "real smart" : "change of attitude; instead of accumulating, of building new houses and buying new cars and other goods, people could start to share what they already have".

Tech That Matters: RogerVoice Will Allow The Deaf Finally Have A Conversation On The Phone | Startup Europe | Scoop.it
I just had a Skype chat with entrepreneur Olivier Jeannel about his new product. It was a text chat, as Olivier - just like roughly 70 million people in the world (of which approximately 26 million of Americans) - suffers from profound hearing loss. If he has his way, soon this is no longer going to be a problem.

These Energy-Saving, Batteryless Chips Could Soon Power The Internet Of Things

These Energy-Saving, Batteryless Chips Could Soon Power The Internet Of Things | Startup Europe | Scoop.it
The Internet of Things sounds great, but who's going to power it? These chips will.
Federico Guerrini's insight:

Not to mention the energy bill at the end of the month. Luckily, it doesn’t necessarily have to be this way. Charlottesville based company Psikick has been working on a technique called subthreshold processing, that could solve this kind of problems and provide us a battery-less future.
