Se crea en un laboratorio el primer agujero gusano magnético que conecta dos regiones del espacio | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Películas como «Stargate», «Star Trek» o «Interstellar» han popularizado el término «agujero de gusano», que es una hipotética característica topológica de un espacio-tiempo que, en esencia, consiste en un atajo a través del espacio y el tiempo. Lo ideal para llegar a un planeta remoto en un instante.
Ahora, científicos de la Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona (UAB), ha logrado crear el equivalente magnético a un agujero de gusano. Este túnel invisible, pues, conecta magnéticamente dos regiones del espacio, según publican en la revista en Scientific Reports."

The Most Effective Way to Protect an Aging Brain

The Most Effective Way to Protect an Aging Brain | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Researchers have known for some time that exercise is good for aging brains. The latest studies, though, are adding some finer points to that message: While exercise appears to work best before memory fades, it also benefits people who've already gotten dementia. And it seems to help not just with Alzheimer's disease, but also with vascular dementia, a kind of memory loss that’s caused by "silent" strokes in the brain.

​Wearable tech heart rate tracking is 'incredibly accurate'

​Wearable tech heart rate tracking is 'incredibly accurate' | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Wrist-based heart rate monitors get a bad rap, especially when it comes to the new wave of devices from the likes of Fitbit, Mio and Apple.

But Professor Greg Whyte has told Wareable that, in reality, the criticism levelled at wearable and heart rate tracking accuracy is unfair. And while it should be noted that he's an ambassador for Fitbit, Whyte is a highly respected sports performance scientist, a former Olympic athlete and leads the Centre for Human Health & Performance at Harley Street in London – so he has little to gain by spouting any propaganda in his field.

Augmented Reality Can Increase Productivity

Augmented Reality Can Increase Productivity | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Technological and cultural shifts that result in enhancements in manufacturing tend to increase complexity in products and processes. In turn, this complexity increases requirements in manufacturing and puts added pressure on organizations to squeeze out inefficiencies and lower costs where and when feasible.

This trend is acute in aerospace, where complexity, quality and safety require a large portion of final assembly to be done by humans. Corporations like AREA member Boeing are finding ways to improve assembly workflows by making tasks easier and faster to perform with less errors.

Augmented Reality Glasses could Allow Text Encryption

Augmented Reality Glasses could Allow Text Encryption | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Augmented reality glasses do not have a good reputation when it comes to privacy. However, researchers at the University of North Carolina think that these glasses could actually provide excellent privacy to the wearer through encrypted communication. Sensitive data for these AR glasses would not be decrypted on computer screens. Only the recipient will be able to see the decrypted data in their eyes. The researchers at the university have developed a trial system of supposed “visual cryptography” which is designed to send secret messages to the wearer of an augmented reality headset.

Design Thinking + Business Model Innovation

Design Thinking + Business Model Innovation | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
A lot has been said and written about what design thinking is, so I will not go there. Instead, I will take a typical design thinking process and show you how it can be applied to business model design. As the design firm IDEO has been one of the early advocates of design thinking, let us use one of their design thinking processes as outlined in the Design Thinking for Educators Handbook. Other processes are fairly similar and I found this one to be easy and clear enough to be understood quickly

Can Design Thinking Help Schools Find New Solutions to Old Problems?

Can Design Thinking Help Schools Find New Solutions to Old Problems? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Principal Kamar Samuels had a problem: how to reach the most disaffected students at Bronx Writing Academy, a middle school serving mostly low-income students. The usual discipline methods weren’t working and Samuels knew that if he could figure out how to engage his toughest students, he’d have a playbook to reach them all. So, he decided to make those students his focus group, asking them what they liked about school, and really listened to the answers. That technique is part of a user-centered design approach he’s trying out in order to tackle some of the age-old problems in education, like low achievement for Latino and African-American boys, with a new lens.
