Uma equipa de cientistas do MIT nos Estados Unidos desenvolveu um microscópio especial que permite observar movimentos invisíveis a olho nu. Segundo os investigadores, as vibrações de um amplificador fazem vibrar um copo de vinho mas é impossível ver o movimento sem a ajuda da tecnologia. O sistema baseia-se no uso de uma câmara de vídeo. Os investigadores norte-americanos chamam ao…
As emblemáticas cabines telefónicas vermelhas de Londres, começaram a ser verdes. Não se trata apenas de uma mudança de cor. A luz solar permite que os londrinos carreguem a bateria do telemóvel, enquanto assistem a alguns anúncios. É um projeto de dois licenciados da Escola de Economia de Londres. As cabines, controladas por um serviço técnico diário, permanecem fechadas durante a…

A revolution is happening in the living room. Xbox 360 is transforming how you enjoy TV entertainment and is giving you the power to control it with your voice. The next generation of TV entertainment begins with the announcement by Microsoft Corp. of the launch of an all-new Xbox 360 experience including the first group of new, custom applications from world leading TV and entertainment content providers on Xbox LIVE.“A new era in entertainment begins where all your entertainment is together in one place — your games, movies, TV shows, music and sports,” said Don Mattrick, president of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft. “With this update, Xbox 360 system owners will experience Kinect voice control integrated with Bing search, making your TV and entertainment experiences more social and personal than ever.”
É um cheirinho do que está para vir no admirável mundo das tecnologias. Imagine que podia enviar um aroma, provar um sabor ou tocar em alguém através do seu telemóvel. É este o sonho que Adrian David Cook está a tentar transformar em realidade, ter os cinco sentidos na ponta dos dedos. Os dispositivos electrónicos com que interagimos diariamente proporcionam essencialmente experiências…
Os edifícios são rígidos e imóveis. Mas no futuro, podem vir a ser construídos com um polímero que consegue mudar de forma e expandir-se consoante as alterações de temperatura. Investigadores do Instituto de Arquitetura Avançada de Barcelona lançaram as bases com um edifício protótipo de origami que se dobra e expande com as altas temperaturas. Procuraram um material com a capacidade de dobrar e…
Underestimating students is an epidemic, one that even critical pedagogues and so-called student-centered classrooms can easily fall victim to. This happens at every scale. It’s especially egregious, though, to underestimate students in classes of 20 or 10 or 5, where the student-to-teacher ratio creates more space for the voice of the teacher and less critical mass for student revolt. Watching a teacher drone incessantly to a room of 10 bored-to-death students makes even a TED Talk look blissfully interactive.

The inclusion of integrated hardware sensors in mobile devices provides the possibility of augmenting learning activities with sensor data. Technology enhanced learning activities, such as those created with the mobile authoring tool in this project, capture spatially distributed physical sensory data, such as video, photos, audio recordings, and GPS locations. Vogel, Spikol, Kurti, and Milrad (2010) state that there are ongoing research challenges related to integrating this collected sensor data to support learning but conclude that “mobile learning can best provide support for learning in context” (p. 65). Thus, the proposed tool must promote capturing contextual experiences via multimedia examples of the environment and their locations. Context is defined as any information illustrating the situation of a learner such as location, time, activities, and surrounding environmental characteristics (Vogel, Spikol, Kurti, & Milrad, 2010). As a result, the proposed tool will capture a representation of these contextual attributes.
Google Smartwatch 3D render concept. We've seen the Samsung smartwatch and the possible Apple iWatch but what if Google made a watch? We've come up with a possible design and features that we would like to see in the Google Smart Watch..
I use QR codes and augmented reality codes to help students move independently from one activity to the next. Kids use cell phones or tablets to scan the barcodes, which take them to websites or instruction pages with directions for the next activity, or to “cheat codes,” with strategies to help them solve the “boss-level problem.” I even decided to forgo the usual grading system in my classroom, so that as far as the students knew, they were either “Leveling Up!” (proficient) or they needed more practice with “Game Over: Try Again.” They stopped defining themselves by grades and saw “try again” as an opportunity to do just that.

Why developers should embrace platform uncertainty SUMMARY: The rise of hybrid laptop-tablet devices, which have both a touch screen and a trackpad, makes it essentially impossible for developers to know whether a given click comes from a fingertip or a mouse cursor, this article notes. That suggests developers should accept uncertainty and stop trying to control everything. "Eventually there probably will be some way to easily detect and know for certain which input device is being used, but for the time being you're going to have to live with some level of uncertainty," Scott Gilbertson writes.
If you have iClone5 you should have a Look at Skywalkerwil ( Wil Veeke ) newest set up - i do love theese Avatars and if i could think of a movie script they would for into i would get them imedialy. They looks great and very usefully. @safegaard
