Data glasses controlled by eye movements

luiy's curator insight, September 14, 2013 2:03 AM

Smart glasses are currently attracting considerable interest. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Organics, Materials and Electronic Devices (COMEDD) have developed their own eye-controlled OLED data glasses, which offer an innovative approach to selecting and displaying digital information.

 

The bidirectional OLED microdisplay used in the Fraunhofer data glasses enables users to view the real world while simultaneously browsing a wealth of virtual information and flipping through pages using nothing but their eyes.

 

Thanks to special software, the data glasses are entirely eye-controlled: The camera sensors integrated into the OLED screen register the direction of the wearer's eye movements and an image processing program calculates the exact position of their pupils in real time.

 

The researchers have also incorporated an infrared light source in the glass frame to produce accurate positioning results even in low light. This light is completely invisible to the human eye, so there is no risk of disturbing the wearer of the data glasses in his or her work.

"The researchers analyzed anonymous English-language status updates on Facebook in the top 100 most populous cities in the U.S. over 1,180 days, between January 2009 and March 2012. Researchers did not view any names of users or even the words posted by users. They relied on automated text analysis, through a software program called the Linguistic Inquiry Word Count, to measure the emotional content of each post."

 

“If an emotional change in one person spreads and causes a change in many, then we may be dramatically underestimating the effectiveness of efforts to improve mental and physical health,” said Fowler, co-author of the book Connected, “We should be doing everything we can to measure the effects of social networks and to learn how to magnify them so that we can create an epidemic of wellbeing.”

How, Exactly, Some Cities Are “Smart” and Others Might Become It – Next City

How, Exactly, Some Cities Are “Smart” and Others Might Become It – Next City | The Rise of the Algorithmic Medium | Scoop.it

A new study in Cities breaks down the “smart city” concept into its component parts.

 

In the field of urban innovation, perhaps no topic is as hot right now as that of the "smart city." But a new study finds that when broken down into its component parts, the approach is far more unevenly distributed than its catch-all label might imply — and that a better understanding of the concept, married with knowing the characteristics of a local place, can help predict which cities will get smart how. ....

Lisa Gwillam and Ray Sweeten form the code-art creating duo DataSpaceTime. Engaging in the aesthetics, the politics, and various undersides of contemporary backend technology, their pieces break down digital images, investigate how visual data interacts with other visual data, and look at how new technologies play with old ones. Their work also demonstrates how coding can be a form of artistic control and freedom. In 2011, they launched their first project, a succession of large-scale QR code-based portrait paintings of iconic people and objects like Hosni Mubarak, or Carpaccio’s “Portrait of a Young Woman.” The QR codes that form the portrait components each hold their own bit of information–the results of a single internet search, for instance–and work in concert with a proprietary app, which after giving over the necessary permissions, and downloading, unlocks the data for the user. ....

The city as network - Social Physics | #dataviz #UrbanFlows

The city as network - Social Physics | #dataviz #UrbanFlows | The Rise of the Algorithmic Medium | Scoop.it
Traditionally, cities have been viewed as the sum of their locations – the buildings, monuments, squares and parks that spring to mind when we think of ‘New York’, ‘London’ or ‘Paris’. In The new science of cities (Amazon US| Amazon UK), Michael Batty argues that a more productive approach is to think of cities in terms of …

Cities and network analysis.

 

Viewing cities as networks allows us to use the toolbox of network analysis on them, employing concepts such as ‘cores’ and ‘peripheries’, ‘centrality’, and ‘modules’. Batty says that an understanding of how different types of network intersect will be the key that really unlocks our understanding of cities.

 

Cities, like many other types of network, also seem to be modular, hierarchical, and scale-free – in other words, they show similar patterns at different scales. It’s often said that London is a series of villages, with their own centres and peripheries. but the pattern also repeats when you zoom out and look at the relationships between cities. One can see this in the way that London’s influence really extends across Europe, and in the way that linked series of cities, or ‘megalopolises‘, are growing in places such as the eastern seaboard of the US, Japan’s ‘Taiheiyō Belt‘, or the Pearl River Delta in China.

Flows are not just the connectors between these important locations. Rather, the locations become important because – at least in part – they’re at the intersections.
