Electrolux Bio Robot Refrigerator by Yuriy Dmitriev » Yanko Design

Electrolux Bio Robot Refrigerator by Yuriy Dmitriev » Yanko Design | Technologeek | Scoop.it

The Electrolux Bio Robot Refrigerator, a concept that has been making quite a splash in the blogosphere! In lay terms, the fridge is a concept where the Bio Robot cools biopolymer gel through luminescence. A non-sticky gel surrounds the food item when shoved into the biopolymer gel, creating separate pods. The design features no doors or drawers, and the food items are individually cooled at their optimal temperature thanks to the robot. And since it can take any orientation (hung vertically, horizontally, and even on the ceiling), and can be modified in size

Gary Hayes's curator insight, February 22, 4:31 PM

Quote "

Mr Abovitz recently said: 'We have the term 'cinematic reality' because we are disassociated with those things.

'When you see this, you will see that this is computing for the next 30 or 40 years.

'To go farther and deeper than we're going, you would be changing what it means to be human.'

The soon-to-be defunct Google Glass, already lets users see augmented reality. 

Using a particular app for example, runners can wear the glasses to see monsters chasing them.

The Magic Leap patent shows how its headset could be used in a similar way by cyclists, for example.

 

 

 

Google Glass also superimposes information on the periphery of a wearer's vision.

Facebook spent $2 billion buying Oculus last year, which makes a virtual reality headset, mostly aimed at gamers.

Unlike Magic Leap's future device, it blocks out the real world around the user.

Nuclear fusion is the dream of energy scientists the world over, because it promises limitless, clean electricity. Most efforts to kickstart the process use high-intensity lasers, insane magnetic field and super-hot hydrogen plasmas. But there may be a more humble alternative.

How to Automatically Back Up and Purge Your Gmail

How to Automatically Back Up and Purge Your Gmail | Technologeek | Scoop.it
If the Sony hack has taught us anything, it's that keeping incriminating emails in your inbox is a terrible idea. Even if you aren't doing anything particularly bad, if someone gets into you email, everything you've ever said could be out in the open. Here's how to make sure that doesn't happen by automatically backing up and deleting everything in your Gmail account on a schedule.
Nicko Gibson's insight:

Some good scripts to purge emails. But for backups I find it much easier to use Google Takeout where I can easily select labels to backup.

We are about to find out if our universe really is a hologram

We are about to find out if our universe really is a hologram | Technologeek | Scoop.it

What could be the most important scientific experiment of our lifetime is about to begin. The so-called Holometer Experiment at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory aims to determine whether our perception of a three-dimensional universe is just an illusion. Do we actually live on a 2D plane, as a holographic projection? There is a well-established theory that states we are indeed living in a hologram, with a pixel size of about 10 trillion trillion times smaller than an atom. This has certain implications, some of which are quite sinister, even unspeakably horrific.

 

After we find out about whether we live in a hologram, we can all go back to focusing on Twitch’s valuation and whether the iPhone 6 will feature a sapphire screen.
