Richard Platt's insight:

"Orthosense" by David Schnare, and the game "Seed" by Alexandre Ribeiro da Silva, took top spot out of the thousands of entries from 37 countries -- up from 19 last year. With an incentive like a cash prize pool of $465,000 awarded to 21 of the winners, developers were challenged to blur the lines between human and computer interaction with a camera similar to the one already embedded in many of today's devices, including the HP Envy laptop and Lenovo B50 All-in-One desktop.  -  Utilizing a best-in-class three-dimensional depth sensor, RealSense 3D technology enables new ways to interact, including 22-point hand and finger tracking and gesture recognition, facial detection and tracking, speech recognition, and even background subtraction to create a kind of green screen – without needing a green screen.  -  Think of it as Kinect on steroids.  -  "As rapidly and profoundly as technology continues to advance, one thing remains constant: the need for more human and intuitive ways to interact with it," says Scott Steinberg, a leading analyst, futurist, and author of Make Change Work for You. "Whether scanning in favorite objects, like children's toys, and reprinting them on demand at grandma's house, navigating through 3D models of homes or tradeshow floors with the wave of a hand, or using gesture controls to flip through your music collection, it's only natural for software and hardware developers alike to look to technology solutions such as this that provide more user-friendly and accessible controls."

Richard Platt's insight:

According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), 2013 saw the highest number of industrial robots ever sold, with a total of 1.6 million units worth an estimated $10 billion.  According to the IFR, double-digit growth will continue through the end of this decade with more and more countries adopting robots and automation. According to IFR:

  • Global competition requires modernization of production facilities.
  • Energy-efficiency and new materials, e.g. carbon-composites, require retooling of production.
  • Human-machine collaboration will open up new applications and attract new customers.
  • Growing consumer markets require expansion of production capacities.
  • Decline in products’ life-cycle and increase in the variety of products require flexible automation.
  • Technical improvements of industrial robots will increase the use of robots in the general industry and in small and medium-sized companies, e.g. user-friendly robots, uncomplicated, and low-priced robots for simple applications.
  • Improved quality requires sophisticated, high-tech robot systems.
  • Robots improve the quality of work by taking over dangerous, tedious, and dirty jobs that are not possible or safe for humans to perform.

Once this highly practical fashion trend gains traction, you won't care how strange it looks.  Imaging not having to recharge your digital devices from clumbsy wall "warts" or having your smartphone die because you forgot to charge it.  With solar cells integrated in your clothing, you can charge your digital devices as you go about your business, walk to work, or even jogging to keep in shape.  A win-win for everyone.  Aloha, Russ.

How All-in-One Systems Make Workers More Productive

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

the Intel® NUC provides an elegant solution. These mini-desktops take advantage of low power processors, improved thermals, and small form factor design motivated by mobile platforms. However there is another aspect of mobile computing that lacks penetration in the desktop – and that is touch. - With every tap, pinch and swipe, mobile devices are continually reinforcing the modern way of interacting with technology. Not only is touch ubiquitous on phones and tablets, but now a higher percentage of clamshells offer touch to take full advantage of Windows 8.1. - Because of customer's expectations in the mobile space will drive the "touch" functionality in future systems,  we suspect so anyways.
