El Inventor del Teléfono

El Inventor del Teléfono | Media Archæology | Scoop.it

Antonio Santi Giuseppe Meucci (Florencia, 13 de abril de 1808 - Nueva York, 18 de octubre de 1889) fue el inventor del teletrófono, posteriormente bautizado como teléfono, entre otras innovaciones técnicas. Desarrolló un teléfono neumático (precursor de su teletrófono) que hoy todavía se utiliza en el Teatro della Pergola de Florencia y que luego perfeccionó en el teatro Tacón de La Habana. Creó un nuevo sistema de galvanizado, un sistema de filtros para la depuración del agua e introdujo el uso de la parafina en la fabricación de velas. También desarrolló un sistema de electroshocks terapeúticos que administraba en La Habana. El gobierno de Italia lo honra con el título de Inventore ufficiale del telefono. Extraído de Wikipedia.

Stereobelt, primer reproductor personal de sonido.

El Stereobelt fue el primer reproductor personal de sonido.[1] Inventado en 1972 por el industrial germano-brasileño Andreas Pavel, el Stereobelt precede al Walkman de Sony y a otros dispositivos más recientes como el Zune de Microsoft o el iPod de Apple.

Andreas Pavel, que había sido ejecutivo de televisión y editor de libros, inventó el Stereobelt con la intención de "añadir banda sonora a la vida real" al permitir al usuario escuchar música en alta fidelidad con cascos mientras realizaba actividades cotidianas.

El inventor llevó a cabo la prueba inicial del aparato en febrero de 1972 en Saint Moritz, Suiza, con la canción "Push Push" de Herbie Mann y Duane Allman. Pavel experimentó una sensación de "flotación" al escuchar música mientras contemplaba la nieve caer en las montañas, advirtiendo que su nuevo invento podría proporcionar "los medios para multiplicar el potencial estético de cualquier situación".[1]

There are many masterpieces about the history of photography, however, it is difficult to tell when the technology of photography appeared. The Renaissance prepared everything for the appearance of photography technology.

What about this addition to our material culture? The 3D photo booth reminds me of Francois Willeme (19th-century) and his 3D “portrait sculptures”.

Alex Galloway talked about Willeme in a workshop about a media archeology of cybernetics.

This is what futurists in 1988 thought Los Angeles would look like today

This is what futurists in 1988 thought Los Angeles would look like today | Media Archæology | Scoop.it

In 1988 the Los Angeles Times Magazine published 'L.A. 2013: A Special Report.' Written by Nicole Yorkin, the article takes a look at what daily life might look like for a typical Angeleno in the year 2013 — then 25 years away. It's a fascinating read both for what it gets correct as well as where it misses the mark.

luiy's curator insight, March 28, 2013 7:13 AM

One area that is missed almost completely, however, is the revolution of cloud-based computing and storage. Almost all of the futuristic devices described in the piece — from an automated home gym to school desks with computer screens built right in — rely on some sort of physical storage device. One of the lone examples that doesn't hew to this paradigm is video on demand. However, the real 2013 has many more options in this realm than what's portrayed here (the fictional family has only 10 movies to choose from on their VOD service, and ordering a film requires a phone call to their cable company).

 

Futurist Syd Mead, known for Blade Runner and an assortment of other works, lends conceptual artwork he did for an unproduced television show called LA 15. It reveals a downtown Los Angeles of futuristic, sweeping lines, and while the landscape hasn't transformed to the degree he envisioned, the aesthetic does sync up nicely with buildings like the current Walt Disney Concert Hall. It's a fascinating read for anyone interested in where we are, where we thought we'd be, and where we have yet to go.
