Google to Sell Heads-Up Display Glasses by Year's End

Google to Sell Heads-Up Display Glasses by Year's End | Science Fiction Future | Scoop.it

In Vernor Vinge's novel Rainbows End, the author imagines a near future where everybody wears computers knitted into their clothing, which are connected to augmented reality contact lenses or glasses. Everybody looks at the world through a layer of data, whether that's just social information about the people they're talking to, or a full-blown MMO overlay that turns their college campus into a medieval village. People use these AR goggles to do everything from research to gaming; Vinge imagines AR as a technology that can pull the web into the real world. Now, Google is going to do exactly what Vinge predicted.

8of5's Guide to the Trek Collective: Review: The Struggle Within

8of5's Guide to the Trek Collective: Review: The Struggle Within | Science Fiction Future | Scoop.it

This novella has two stories, which provide a pleasing symmetry as we see complementary tales from the Khitomer and Typhon sides of the political divide. One deals primarily with Picard, Crusher, and Worf, as the Enterprise is sent to visit the Talarians. The other features the newer TNG relaunch characters Jasminder Choudhury and T'Ryssa Chen, on a secret mission to deal with the Kinshaya. Also in the mix are Romulans, Breen, and Tzenkethi, leaving just the Gorn that don't make an appearance from the Typhon Pact species.

With New Technique, Tiny Robots Can Be Mass-Produced Like Pop-Up Books | Popular Science | Science Fiction Future | Scoop.it

A technique inspired by pop-up books could enable quicker production of tiny robots and other electrical devices, according to Harvard engineers. Usually, building a micro aerial vehicle — or any other robot — requires a painstaking assembly process, with each little wing or sensor folded and machined just so. Now it can come together in a single fold.

To paraphrase Dragnet, there are millions of stories in the Empire State – and Adam Christopher has tried to tell as many of them as possible within a single coherent narrative.
