DoorBot.. see who is knocking via your mobile device

DoorBot.. see who is knocking via your mobile device | scatol8® | Scoop.it

"Who doesn’t love a good crowdsource item? Edison Junior is currently seeking funding for its DoorBot, a doorbell with Wi-Fi connectivity that lets you see who is at your door from your smartphone. Even better, the device is designed to work with the keyless lock Lockitron, which can also be controlled via a smartphone. In combination, the two would allow users to usher visitors into their home from wherever they happen to be."

Vuzix Smart Glasses M100.. to give Google Glass a run for its money

Vuzix Smart Glasses M100.. to give Google Glass a run for its money | scatol8® | Scoop.it

"Vuzix is launching an Android-powered wearable computer by early 2013.

 

Google is definitely not alone in developing wearable technologies that may one day find themselves on your and my body in the next few years. For one, a company called Vuzix has developed an Android-based device called the M100, which resembles an oversized Bluetooth headset."

Phorce.. call it a cool smart bag

Phorce.. call it a cool smart bag | scatol8® | Scoop.it

"Anytime I say “cool” while finding new gadgets I know it is a good one. So before you say “not another bag story” - stop. You will want to read this one. The ongoing quest for people on the move is charging devices.

 

Phorce combines technology and practical design to come up with a functional piece you won’t want to live without. On the technology side, watch out. Phorce offers charging for 3 USB devices simultaneously. How much power? The integrated lightweight battery pack can give you 8 iPhone (4, 4S, 5) or 6 Galaxy (SIII) charges. That is also enough to provide a full charge for a new iPad. For the real Mac gurus the Phorce for Mac version can charge a variety of Mac Books – Air, Pro and Pro Retina."

Sniff Sniff, The Gadget Hound.. sniffs out misplaced gadgets

Sniff Sniff, The Gadget Hound.. sniffs out misplaced gadgets | scatol8® | Scoop.it

It can be rather frustrating when your short term memory betrays you, especially when it involves gizmos and gadgets that you have worked so hard and long for. Too bad the hound that you have sleeping on your sofa is more interested in tracking down a bunny or the scent of his favorite ball, but does not give two hoots about your missing Samsung Galaxy S3. With The Gadget Hound, things are slightly different now, where this sleek, patent-pending design gizmo is touted to locate the smallest of objects within seconds."

Internet of food: Arduino-based, urban aquaponics in Oakland

It's called aquaponics- a gardening system that combines hydroponics (water-based planting) and aquaculture (fish farming). It's been hailed as the future of farming: it uses less water (up to 90% less than traditional gardening), doesn't attract soil-based bugs and produces two types of produce (both plants and fish).


Aquaponics has become popular in recent years among urban gardeners and DIY tinkerers, but Maundu- who is trained in industrial robotics- has taken the agricultural craft one step further and made his gardens smart. Using sensors (to detect water level, pH and temperature), microprocessors (mostly the open-source Arduino microcontroller), relay cards, clouds and social media networks (Twitter and Facebook), Maundu has programmed his gardens to tweet when there's a problem (i.e. not enough water) or when there's news (i.e. an over-abundance of food to share).
Maundu himself ran from agriculture in his native Kenya- where he saw it as a struggle for land, water and resources. This changed when he realized he could farm without soil and with little water via aquaponics and that he could apply his robotics background to farming.

 

Today he runs Kijani Grows ("Kijani" is Swahili for green), a small startup that designs and sells custom aquaponics systems for growing food and attempts to explore new frontiers of computer-controlled gardening. Maundu believes that by putting gardens online, especially in places like West Oakland (where his solar-powered gardens are totally off the grid), it's the only way to make sure that farming remains viable to the next generation of urban youth.
