Trainable Robotic Arm

Inspired by the Baxter robot, this arm can be trained to move with your own hands. Once the train button is pressed, you move the arm and gripper as needed while the Arduino stores the positions in EEPROM. After that the arm will replay the motion as needed.

Employees don't like their social intranets, study says | Ragan.com

Employees don't like their social intranets, study says | Ragan.com | technology | Scoop.it
Prescient Digital Media's 2013 study found the implementation of social intranet tools on the rise at most businesses, but satisfaction is quite low. Why aren't employees and executives happier?

 

The firm's 2013 Social Intranet Study found that 76 percent of the companies surveyed use instant messaging, at least in some limited way. About 75 percent use blogs. Around two-thirds have wikis, discussion forums, and user comments. It's fair to say social tools are being used widely.

 

However, only 19 percent of organizations rated their social intranet tools as good or very good. Even fewer executives, 17 percent, like them.

Toby Ward, president of Prescient Digital Media, says the tools are easy to come by, but demonstrating their value is considerably tougher....

This looks really interesting, but riases some questions - will retailers accept it with no sidniture strip? Can the waiter change which card is being used after you hand it over? What is the security like on both loading the cards onto the Coin and storing them within Coin?

 

Be really good if they can get it released and it is secure enough - ditch the thick purse!

Australia: 'Digital divide' looming because of questions over NBN fibre roll-out | ABC Online

Australia: 'Digital divide' looming because of questions over NBN fibre roll-out | ABC Online | technology | Scoop.it

A leading telecommunications analyst has warned it will be some time before a clear picture emerges of which areas will get fibre under the National Broadband Network (NBN) and which will not.

 

The Government has promised to deliver on existing NBN contracts, but yesterday the NBN Co updated its rollout maps, removing hundreds of thousands of premises that were scheduled to be connected to fibre optic cable.

 

Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull says the old maps were misleading because they listed areas as being "under construction" even though they were only at the planning stage.

 

But Paul Budde from telecommunications research site BuddeComm says the Government has made a political decision to redefine contracts.

 

"This Government says we only talk about work as commencing if somebody has put a spade in the ground, or is climbing on a pole," he said.

 

"OK, fine, but that's a political decision that you make.

 

"People are therefore concerned that by changing the definition that they are becoming victims of that political language, of what's included and what's not included."

 

The Government says it cannot say which areas will get fibre-to-the-home and which will receive the NBN via other kinds of technology until after the NBN Co completes its 60-day review of the network, due in early December.

 

But Mr Budde says it will be much longer before the structure of the entire network is laid out.

Talkwheel wants to reinvent the way we communicate online | technology | Scoop.it

We have email, we have message boards, we have IM, but if they aren’t integrated with one another, our collaborative communications often fall short.

Andy McLoughlin, cofounder of Huddle, recently discussed the limitations of email as a collaboration tool. Virtual teams are finding email streams hard to track and harder to scale.

IM conversations, while great in the moment, often disappear into the ether, not archived for future reference. And message boards are barely a step up from the Usenet Newsgroups of the early Internet.
