Richard Platt's curator insight, December 17, 5:27 PM

More on the Cicret Bracelet that has a pico-projector, accelerometer, proximity sensors, etc...kind of interesting, still thinking about the use case beyond the novelty of the wrist displayed screen which may make this the wearable device that does more than give you alerts from your smartphone.

HyperCities ~ New Learning Times

HyperCities ~ New Learning Times | smart cities | Scoop.it

by Carmen James


"HyperCities is a dynamic educational project at the intersection of cartography and information visualization, humanities and technology, geography and digital space. The project has produced grounded cultural narratives in 27 international cities. HyperCities uses Google Maps and Google Earth (among other technologies, like GPS-enabled cameras and cell phones) to allow users to explore historical layers of city spaces. Accessing the cities and exploring them is straightforward. Once a city has been selected, users can select the time period or the area of the city they are looking to explore on the map. Within each frame, users can access everything from scholarly content to community-generated content. Users can also click on historic sites to learn more about them and overlay older maps of the same cities."

This is much inline with my readings on the zero marginal cost society. Being able to print your own car may not be practical of cost effective today but once it is and car 3D models are available free or low charge on the web, where will the car industry go? I understand why Tesla is building huge battery manufacturing plant as they may have seen that providing key components may be the future of the car industry?

Fascinating idea that could revolutionize how we buy, repair, and maintain our cars/trucks.  Imagine dialing up a Porsche sportscar and having it in your garage in a few hours?  Farfetched...but possible. I bet the major car makers are a bit concerned about this.  Aloha, Russ.

Brain to Brain Communication Using EEG Waves and the Internet

Brain to Brain Communication Using EEG Waves and the Internet | smart cities | Scoop.it
Brain-to-brain communication was achieved recently using brain-computer interfaces, computer-brain interfaces, electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings and the internet. The developers of this brain-to-brain communication system demonstrated the transmission of information between conscious human brains without use of motor or peripheral sensory systems. This means that the information was sent from one mind to another mind without talking […]
