This giant 3D printer can build 10 prefab homes in under 24 hours - Digital Trends | Geekmo Mobile IT Support for Auckland | Scoop.it
Add a comment29745210123d printed house 3D printers are building some pretty amazing stuff lately: working speakers, wooden furniture, prosthetic limbs, and even foods like pizza and pasta — but WinSun Decoration Design Engineering Co. of Shanghai, China is thinking much, much bigger.Instead of pumping out small plastic parts with a desktop-sized printer, these guys print out prefabricated living structures out of concrete using a massive, building-sized 3D printing machine.Now, to be sure, 3D printing houses isn’t a particularly new thing. Companies have embraced the idea of additive manufacturing since before the term “3D printing” had even entered the popular vernacular. For this reason, it’s not the houses that WinSun creates that are impressive — it’s the blistering pace at which it creates them. Running at full speed, the company’s printer is capable of producing up to ten 650 sq. foot homes in just 24 hours.Read more: http://www.digitaltrends.com/home/giant-3d-printer-can-build-10-prefab-homes-24-hours/#ixzz2zIzrhwwrFollow us: @digitaltrends on Twitter | digitaltrendsftw on Facebook

Windows 8.1 Update is the final nail in the coffin

Windows 8.1 Update is the final nail in the coffin | Geekmo Mobile IT Support for Auckland | Scoop.it
Windows 8.1 Update. Windows 8.1 Update 1. Windows Feature Pack. Windows 8.1 Service Pack 1. Call it what you will, the big update to Windows 8.1 is just around the corner and it promises much. Or at least it did. It was revealed yesterday that it was possible to get hold of the update ahead of schedule with a quick and simple registry edit -- or by downloading the necessary files from the numerous mirrors that quickly sprang up -- and it appears that this is final code; the RTM version that will hit Windows Update for the masses very soon. Was it worth the wait?

Yihan She's curator insight, March 26, 2014 10:47 PM

Google glass can obviously give us a new way of life. Like others wearable device, Google glass uses technology to help us to deal with working and daily life information easier, although it is a little gross than a normal glass currently. 

Tony Curmudgeon O'seland's curator insight, March 27, 2014 12:40 PM

This makes me wonder if the digitization of graphic literature will further degrade the field.  Physical ownership of graphic literature has become a vague concept these days, and if I read the buyers agreements on digital copies, you don't ever actually own the copy, you get to view it a set number of times.  While these glasses may make being a Hipster seem cool, do they actually serve a purpose for those who read, or are they just another gimmick to sell tech?

Darilyn Evans's curator insight, March 16, 2014 4:01 AM

Adapt or die is what this talk is about. Former business strategies are rapidly becoming obsolete, the value chain is no longer applicable, vertical integration is moving into horizontal integration.  New models in both public and private sectors need to embrace simultaneous competition and collaboration and different motivations of staff and customers. The concept of scale has changed.

6 reasons why Windows RT is the real future of Windows

6 reasons why Windows RT is the real future of Windows | Geekmo Mobile IT Support for Auckland | Scoop.it
The standard fare of tech industry pundits just don't get it when it comes to Windows RT. They lambasted it when it came out in 2012 (in some ways, rightfully so). They doubted Microsoft would release a Surface 2 variant, and Redmond did just that. And they continue to beat the anti-RT drum loud and clear, using RT device sales figures as their proof of a pending death notice.
