Samsung Set To Unveil New Chips To Power IoT

The Artik system-on-a-chip series will make it easier for even small-fry developers to power the next wave of smart gadgets.

Richard Platt's insight:

Samsung has officially said that Chief Strategy Officer Young Sohn will “reveal a major company milestone that will enable the new wave of groundbreaking Internet of Things devices and services.”  -  A system on a chip (or SoC) integrates all the key components of a mobile computer onto a single chip, including memory, sensors, accelerometer and gyroscope, and crucially, radio frequency functions.  -  Samsung’s best-known system-on-a-chip is the Exynos, a powerful ARM-based chip found primarily in Samsung’s Galaxy line of smartphones. An earlier SoC from Samsung also powered Apple’s first iPhone in 2007.  -  The Artik SoC is different because it’s aimed at a range of hardware developers both large and small, not just big clients like Apple or Samsung’s own mobile division.  -  Samsung has previously pledged to make all of its electronic gadgets and appliances connected by 2020, and the Artik system on a chip series will play a key role in making that happen.

This 2D Material Generates Electricity from movement, & someday it could be woven into our Clothes

Some substances just an atom thick have been theorized to create energy when pushed and pulled. A research team found that to be true for molybdenum disulfide, which is both flexible…

Richard Platt's insight:

The two dimensional material, which is known as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), is pretty finicky about generating electricity. If it is stacked in an even number of layers, it doesn’t do anything. But use an odd number and stretch it in the right direction, and the electricity will start flowing.

This article is talking about how a robot can be able to help develop social skills in autistic children. I think this could be a breakthrough and it could help many autistic children Around the world. If the robots were able to become more well known and cheaper to create,this could be a very helpful tool in dealing with autism For all kids despite financial differences.

"Automated Driving Technology." 2014. Web. 10 Nov 2014

 

    This is a video demonstrating the new technology in cars that is designed to maneuver itself to avoid potential car accidents and even park itself. Watching this video it would be difficult for a person to pick out by this technology would be a con rather than a pro. I must admit, it is pretty neat, but there is one thing in this video that I would like to point out. In order for the car to sense danger as in another car ahead, it uses WiFi which syncs the cars together so that it would move or adjust accordingly. What if the stopped car ahead doesn't have the same technology as the one going 90 miles per hour? If the person behind the wheal was relying soulfully on the vehicle to get him or her out of danger, they were in for a rather not so good surprise. The point is, if people rely on technology too much, it could literally be life threatening.

Using peer-to-peer WiFi to connect cars is an interesting concept to make not just the car intelligent but the traffic intelligent.
