The Internet of Bikes: This Smart Lock Lets You Track and Share Rides

The Internet of Bikes: This Smart Lock Lets You Track and Share Rides | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
This year has seen an influx of internet-connected devices, from home locks, to smoke alarms, to egg trays. But the long arm of Bluetooth has left bike locks relatively untouched—until now.

Carlos Fosca's insight:

"Here’s the gist of how Lock8 works: The device arrives as a Bluetooth-connected hub, which mounts to your frame via an aluminum clip. You secure it using a wired cable, which is the bit that locks into the hub itself. Inside the hub, there's a gyro-accelerometer (to detect motion), along with sensors for light, temperature, GPS, and vibration. The batteries are charged as you ride, thanks to a set of magnets that attach to the bike’s wheel reflectors."

Oldest and Youngest Populations

Oldest and Youngest Populations | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"There are 1.2 billion people between the ages of 15 and 24 in the world today — and that means that many countries have populations younger than ever before.  Some believe that this 'youth bulge' helps fuel social unrest — particularly when combined with high levels of youth unemployment.  Youth unemployment is a 'global time bomb,' as long as today’s millennials remain 'hampered by weak economies, discrimination, and inequality of opportunity.'  The world’s 15 youngest countries are all in Africa.  Of the continent’s 200 million young people, about 75 million are unemployed.

On the flip side, an aging population presents a different set of problems: Japan and Germany are tied for the world’s oldest countries, with median ages of 46.1. Germany’s declining birth rate might mean that its population will decrease by 19 percent, shrinking to 66 million by 2060. An aging population has a huge economic impact: in Germany, it has meant a labor shortage, leaving jobs unfilled."

Carlos Fosca's insight:

"Si es de los que piensan en China como un gigantesco parque temático de manufactura de bajo coste y dependiente de las innovaciones tecnológicas del exterior, más le vale empezar a cambiar el chip. O lo que se encontrará a medio plazo es un competidor en toda regla capaz de introducir cambios disruptivos en la economía, que habla inglés y usa las mismas estrategias de cualquier sociedad avanzada para innovar. Tómeselo en serio: China ya invierte el 2% de su PIB en I+D+i, y es sólo el comienzo."

TED Talks Are Wildly Addictive for 5 Scientific Reasons

TED Talks Are Wildly Addictive for 5 Scientific Reasons | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Carmine Gallo is a popular keynote speaker, communication coach, and author of seven books including international bestsellers, The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs and Talk Like TED: The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds. He works with executives leading the brands that touch your life everyday, helping them to tell their stories more successfully.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"In the last ten years researchers studying brain scans have learned more about the science of persuasion than we’ve ever known in all of civilization. That means we know what moves people, and we can prove it scientifically. After analyzing more than 500 TED presentations (adding up to over 150 hours of talks) and speaking directly to successful TED presenters and leading neuroscientists, I’ve discovered that the most popular TED presentations share five common elements that are all based on the science of persuasion"
