Quote "

So how does the technology work?

"The glasses are ... a two-part system. The first is a 3-D output display that's built with a stereoscopic pair of see-through augmented-reality glasses. The 3-D output display allows you to see the holograms in 3-D," Gribetz said. "The 3-D scanner scans your environment and tells the computer where to place the 3-D graphics relative to the user and the world."

Unlike Google's rival Glass eyewear, which has a smaller screen and is primarily controlled by your voice, Meta glasses could have the potential for an infinite screen controlled by your hands.

"Google is going to take one category of wearable computing, the notification machine," Gribetz said. "Meta is a graphical solution that's going to allow people to build 'Iron Man'-like interfaces and interact with digital information in a much more natural way graphically."

Until then, there are some limitations. The first version can only be used indoors. The company also is working on increasing the field of view, improving latency issues and making the glasses smaller and less bulky. Within two years, Gribetz says, the glasses will be as sleek as a pair of Ray-Bans.

But stylish specs with built-in computer technology do raise the inevitable questions about privacy."

IBM Solar Collector Magnifies Sun By 2000X – These Could Provide Power To The Entire Planet

IBM Solar Collector Magnifies Sun By 2000X – These Could Provide Power To The Entire Planet | Innovation and design | Scoop.it
A team at IBM recently developed what they call a High Concentration Photo Voltaic Thermal (HCPVT) system that is capable of concentrating the power of 2,000 suns. “Each 1cmX1cm chip can convert 200-250 watts, on average, over a typical eight-hour day in a sunny region. In the HCPVT system, instead of heating a building, the 90 degree Celsius water will pass through a porous membrane distillation system where it is then vaporized and desalinated. Such a system could provide 30-40 liters of drinkable water per square meter of receiver area per day, while still generating electricity with a more than 25 percent yield or two kilowatts hours per day. A large installation would provide enough water for a small town.”

Concentrating solar energy ... providing electricity and process heat which can be used to desalinate water. One more instrument to help us get off the fossil fuel addiction and find more clean ways to make our energy...
Scott Baker's curator insight, March 3, 7:28 AM

Well, we just ended the fresh water crisis.  Next problem, please :)

Seriously though, we will need the proper economic incentives - like true pricing of water - to make this happen.  Otherwise, we will have water wars, shortages, and drought instead.

ITV plans to turn a new talent show with a “technological twist”, bought from the Israeli producers behind Homeland, into its next big entertainment hit.

Quote "

Rising Star is a traditional musical talent search with the twist that viewers download a free mobile app that allows them to vote in real time during the show, via the second screen.

When a performer comes out on stage, he or she is separated from the studio audience, and the judges, by a translucent floor-to-celling LED screen.

Judges and viewers vote as the performer begins to sing and images of voters at home, taken from their Facebook pages, appear live on the LED screen facing the performer.

Only if a singer wins over 70 per cent of the viewer votes does the wall rise and the singer then steps out to accept the applause of the live studio audience.

Rising Star is expected to air in the primetime Sunday evening slot that will be vacated by Dancing On Ice when the celebrity ice-skating format ends in 2015.

ITV declined to comment on the Rising Star deal. However sources said the broadcaster did not intend the show to become a replacement for The X Factor, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary but has lost viewers during its Saturday night slot."

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, November 21, 2013 2:16 AM

The judges are viewers who download an app and vote from home

The Printer That Can Print A 2,500 Square Foot House In 20 Hours (with TED video 12min)

The Printer That Can Print A 2,500 Square Foot House In 20 Hours (with TED video 12min) | Innovation and design | Scoop.it

We have seen huge advancements in 3D printing. We’ve even seen oversized wrenches printed that measure 1.2 meters in length. Now, we can print an entire 2,500 sqft house in 20 hours.

 

"In manufacturing we use a process called CAD/CAM (computer-aided design / computer-aided manufacturing). 3D models are designed on a computer and then manufactured using computer controlled Machines or 3D printers."

Feedbag.io is a free web app which allows you to upload any .png, .jpeg, .gif, .pdf, .psd, .eps or .ai set of image files and to share it with another party that wants to review it.


You simply upload one or more images and you are instantly provided with a unique page that shows your uploaded pics on a left column of thumbnails and in the center of the screen, whichever image you have selected. 


The "bag" of images uploaded remains online for you and other to see. 


Supereasy to use. Ideal for sharing and reviewing image sets with people that need maximum ease of use and simplicity.


P.S.: While not officially advertised for this use, Feedbag.io acts as fantastic and quite reliable file converter for any .AI or .EPS file that you cannot view if you don't have access to a copy of Illustrator or Photoshop. You simply upload the .eps or .ai and in a matter of seconds you can see it finely displayed on your screen. From there you can capture it again and save it in your preferred file format. Very handy. 

 


Free to use.

google glass is awesome (and expensive).  an opportunity is to have a pay per use service if its technoogy allows multiple users or is tied to processes instead of people.  we'll see.
