Google's 3D-Scanning Project Tango Just Got a Little More Real

Google's 3D-Scanning Project Tango Just Got a Little More Real | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
Google ATAP (that's Advanced Technology and Projects) is where wonderful things are born. Things like the animated magic of Glen Keane's Duet or the modular Project Ara smartphone. It's all great stuff, but it's also all experimental—if a project doesn't make enough progress in two years, it's dead. But Google's Project Tango is alive and well: it just graduated from ATAP.

Richard Platt's insight:

Project Tango started as an experimental smartphone concept that used a powerful chipset and some advanced cameras to capture over a quarter million 3D measurements every second. Basically, it was a 3D scanner that lived in your pocket, and developers have been using it to create immersive augmented reality headsets, help customers find stuff on crowded store shelves and even turn create an alternate, snowed-in reality in a few Target stores. It's like that crazy Intel RealSense camera in that new Dell tablet,

Samsung says future of smartphone technology is evolution, not revolution
GlobalPost
TORONTO - If tech reviewers say Samsung's new Galaxy S5 isn't as awe-inspiring as some of the company's older phones that's fine with Paul Brennan.

Some of the oddest items on display this week at International CES gadget show were edible, origami-like sculptures made of sugar, their shapes so convoluted as to baffle the eye.

Mostly just Intersting, but with some use case development 3D printing has legs and all sorts of applications.  We see the business model as another area that will need revamping as well.

With only three of us eating, our fridge has a moderate turn over in food. But there are always packages and jars that are lost at the back of the fridge which no one can remember when they were put there. If it works, this is a great idea to help avoid health issues from very out of date food.

Gartner's Technology Vision for 2014: Social, Mobile, Cloud, Information Convergence | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it

Gartner this week released its annual top technologies and trends predictions for the coming year they say will be strategic for most organizations; analysts presented the findings during Gartner Symposium/ITxpo. These technologies, Gartner says, have the potential for significant impact on the enterprise in the next three years. How so? They will disrupt IT or the business and require a major dollar investment.

Apple's Home Automation Tech reportedly won't hit devices until Spring

Apple's Home Automation Tech reportedly won't hit devices until Spring | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
We hope you weren't in a big rush to outfit your household with devices that use Apple's HomeKit automation technology -- you may be waiting a little whi

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

Reportedly, the less-than-ideal timing can be chalked up to Apple's insistence on "rigorous performance standards" for HomeKit, much like what it demands with existing certification efforts like AirPlay and MFi. The ostensible goal is to get home automation working smoothly from the word "go," not to put products on store shelves as quickly as possible. That's good if you'd rather not deal with glitches in your appliances and light bulbs, but it also means that one of iOS 8's tentpole features won't be useful until several months after launch.  - We agree that this rigorous approach to product performance that addresses many of the shortfalls that happen when rushing products to market before they're ready.  We reckon that "antenna-gate" was a key lesson for Apple to do things this way.

Google isn't the only company working on artificial intelligence. It's just the richest | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it

Everyone’s more interested in artificial intelligence since news broke that Google acquired a secretive startup called DeepMind. The technology has big promise, but make no mistake: It’s not sentient yet, and Google is far from alone in its quest.

Microsoft earbuds monitor wearers’ health to help pick the next song

Microsoft earbuds  monitor wearers’ health to help pick the next song | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it

As part of their latest project called Septimu, Microsoft is working to incorporate health monitoring and mood detection into a pair of earbuds.  Capable of monitoring heart rate, temperature and other biorhythms, the in-ear device would even be able to select the most appropriate music depending on your mood.

 

The earphones incorporate sensors such as thermometers, inward-facing microphones and IMUs – which work a lot like accelerometers – to pick up on key indicators throughout your body. Apart from using the headphones to correct your posture, they can also act as a health and exercise diary, providing a low-cost coaching solution, or a non-invasive form of remote medical care.

A Device That Will Let You Hack Almost Anything

A Device That Will Let You Hack Almost Anything | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it

The RFduino is a tiny open source Arduino compatible development board, but with a few twists. Based on a Nordic Semiconductor 32-bit ARM system-on-chip that has built-in support for Bluetooth 4.0, the RFduino runs the same code as Arduino UNO and DUE boards, and it works with any type of sensor, servo, or other device that can communicate with an Arduino microcontroller.

Bluetooth 4.0's Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) feature allows the microcontroller to run on power sources as small as a button-cell battery for some applications—and the team has developed a "shield" for the CR2032 battery, as well as single- and dual-AAA battery configurations.


RFduino can also run off a USB power source or can be wired directly to a 3-volt DC power source. As a result, the RFduino could be used for a whole host of devices that interact with mobile devices, including remote controls, proximity-switch devices such as alarms, and home automation applications that control LED lighting. It could also allow devices programmed with Arduino Sketches to interact with each other over Bluetooth 4.0—potentially allowing for the development of swarms of smart devices that can talk both to smartphones and notebook computers and their environments.

 

Kazanchian, an electrical engineer with experience in the cellular, consumer electronics, aerospace, and industrial systems industries, founded RF Digital as a wireless electronic component design firm in 1999.  He said that in addition to the Kickstarter backers who have donated money to the project and the support from the Arduino "maker" community, there's already commercial interest in using the component. "We have quite a bit of interest from OEMs with mass-production volume uses and requirements for the RFduino and derivative implementations," he said.
