Look, Ma, no hands: Google to test 200 self-driving cars

Look, Ma, no hands: Google to test 200 self-driving cars | Technology News | Scoop.it
General Motors . Toyota. Google ?
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:

From the MSN Autos site; "Google is developing its own autonomous car, rather than adapting an existing production vehicle with its clever autopilot technology, has once again piqued interest in the debate surrounding self-driving cars". Although I see lots of potential uses for a self-driving car, it is still a bit scary to think about the potential danger that might surround them. I'm often left in awe at the advances and use of technology by creative and inspiring people...so... in this particular case, I'm going to sit back, enjoy the roadshow and continue to drive my car until the day comes when it's time for my car to drive me. Special thanks to our Network Engineer for sharing this article with me.

Stick-On Circuit Could Put Your Phone On Your Finger For Pocket Change

Stand aside wristbands. The latest wave of stick-on circuits could make cheap, flexible electronics mainstream.
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:

Hmm, I see this as��having some real possibilities. Not that I would want to stick a circuit on my arm, but just imagine, you could be a walking Internet access point. You could talk to your arm and have your car warm up. Hmm....this is where the Internet of Things really starts to take shape and become more and more a reality.

WiFi To Exceed Wired Traffic By 2018: Cisco Study | Multichannel.com

WiFi To Exceed Wired Traffic By 2018: Cisco Study | Multichannel.com | Technology News | Scoop.it
In a forecast that bodes well for the cable industry’s ambitious WiFi initiatives in and out of the home, WiFi traffic will exceed wired traffic for the first time by 2018, according to a new report from Cisco Systems. By 2018, Cisco also expects high-definition video traffic to generate more traffic than standard-def for the first time. Those predictions are just two of a report full of them, alongside many other broadband-focused insights that Cisco pulled into its latest Visual Networking Index report, which looks at recent adoption trends and what’s on the horizon between 2013 and 2018. More on mobile broadband – WiFi and mobile-connected devices will generate 61% of IP traffic by 2018, Cisco predicted, noting that WiFi will represent 49% of traffic, cellular 12%, and fixed traffic 39% by then. In comparison, WiFi represented 41%, cellular 3%, and fixed 56% in 2013. IP video, Cisco said, will eat up 79% of all IP traffic by 2018, up from 66% in 2013. Ultra HD, meanwhile, will account for roughly 11% of IP video traffic in four years, up from a mere 0.1% in 2013. HD video, meanwhile, will account for 52% of all IP video traffic by 2018, up from 36% in 2013. On a broader basis, Cisco predicted that global IP traffic will grow nearly three-fold over the next four years – reaching an annual run rate of 1.6 zettabytes, or half a trillion gigabytes by 2018 -- as Internet usage and IP-capable devices proliferate and use broadband to distribute video. Also by 2018, Cisco expects the majority of traffic to originate from devices other than a PC.Click headline to read more--
