The Next Industrial Revolution Is Now

The Next Industrial Revolution Is Now | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

A wide variety of technological change is ushering in a third industrial revolution which will change society in ways as equally momentous as England's textile mills and Ford's production line. 3D printers will change the scale of manufacturing, permit individual inventors to innovate with the efficacy of a multinational company and open new economies in far-flung communities.

[VIDEO] A really smart home

On an off-grid property in Philo, California (Mendocino County), Loren Amelang built a home that would help him generate "free hot water, free power and a decent chunk of free heat". Putting his technical skills to use (he's a pioneer in C++ programming), Amelang wrote over 10,000 lines of code so that his home's water and electric systems could be operated more efficiently and automatically. An added benefit is the ability to control everything remotely, by even just a smartphone

Microsoft's 'Universal Translator' Lets You Speak Foreign Languages In Your Own Voice | Popular Science | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Siri’s ability to speak and recognize various languages is impressive, but Microsoft is not to be outdone. Microsoft Research labs has demoed a new prototype software that could be the next big step toward a so-called “universal translator” device, one that can instantly flip one language into another and back again so a conversation can be carried on between two people even when neither can understand the other’s language.

The Internet Of Things: Every Device That Connects Us [Infographic]

The Internet Of Things: Every Device That Connects Us [Infographic] | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

When trying to piece together the devices that we use to connect to each other, it’s easy to see that it’s going to take a piece of paper the size of Texas to feature them all. Even if we manage to do so, we will be far from connecting them all in whatever way they use the Internet. So what do we do? Well, we do it anyway, and on a computer of course. Intel put together a really interesting infographic that lines up all the devices that we use to connect to each other.

For the first time, we can get a clear view of how the technological infrastructure was built and to what extent it reaches out. As you can see, the numbers represented get multiplied with each major technological milestone, and it’s easy to see that we’re heading for something really interesting in the future. Whatever it will be that will beat the Internet will be major, and even though I can’t imagine what that will be right now, it’s still exciting to know that we always come up with something to beat the previous technology. What do you think will be the next big thing in technology that will top the Internet?

The Internet's Cult of Now

The Internet's Cult of Now | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

There is only one measure of time that matters to the current Internet generation: the here and now. The Cult of Now is influencing everything that we do and every interaction we have on the Internet, especially since providing a live, real-time update is often no more difficult than pressing a button on a smart phone. We now perceive our digital lives as a continuous flow of information, and as the intensity of this information flow builds, it means that "the now" gets a disproportionate amount of attention and focus in our society. The Cult of Now satisfies our desire for instant digital gratification, but does it impoverish us in other ways?
