En Israël, la startup OTM Technologies a mis au point Phree, un stylet connecté qui vous permet d'écrire sur n'importe quel type de surface. Concrètement, il vous suffit d'écrire sur une table pour voir votre phrase apparaître en temps réel sur votre écran d'ordinateur.
Does OTM really need the help of croundsurfing ? I don't think so, they surly could have found some support from Banks with such a cool product, but you know Kickstarter is the new marketing trend now. Aside from that aspect if the product really work as it is shown in the video (which I doubt) it's a real revolution and I would definitely buy it. Let's wait for users review ... in 2016.
AIAIAI is marching to the beat of their own drummer.
Apple only offers two models of white earbuds, and Beats makes just a handful of different headphones. But look into the last 40 years of audio, and sound used to be a very personal experience, where consumers mixed and matched speakers and receivers to customize their system.
Now, the Copenhagen-based audio company AIAIAI is bringing mix-and-match audio to the world of headphones. Its new TMA-2 Modular, can be configured 360 different ways—with four different speaker units, five different earpads, three different headbands, and six different cords—each of which easily swaps out if you decide to buy new parts.
It's called the Listening Table, and it not only transcribes meetings, but knows when they're important.
Like most offices, the New York Times holds a lot of meetings. Editorial meetings, ad sales meetings, design meetings, you name it; all centered around a table seemingly for no other purpose than to have something to congregate around, take notes on, and—at worst—idly tap while bored meeting goers drift off into daydream.
So the New York Times decided to give its table a purpose. The Listening Table by NYT Labs (think here the New York Times' own in-house equivalent of MIT's Media Lab) is a smart conference table that is always listening to the conversations happening around it. And when users sit at the Listening Table and tap their fingers on it, they're not bored: they're dropping bookmarks, which the Table then collects into a transcript of the meeting's most important moments.
Interactive cooktops and drought-friendly dishwashers.The future is bright and Doomsday-ready.
There always seem to be two potential futures: In one, we have Marty McFly flying around on hoverboards like everything’s wonderful. In the other, we have Katniss Evergreen slitting throats for the world’s last Manwich. Which one will it be?
Ikea imagines that in the year 2025, our kitchen will live somewhere between dystopia and utopia. In a collaboration with Ideo and students at Lund University, and the Eindhoven University of Technology, Ikea presented a kitchen of the future.
Et si, demain, votre garde-robe, mais aussi vos sacs plastiques et vos pneus contenaient du lait ? La microbiologiste Anke Damaske en extrait une protéine pouvant se substituer au coton et à d'autres matériaux synthétiques.

Experience design might soon become a more important factor in business differentiation and consumer satisfaction than price. This is one of the key insights from the qualitative research Hyper island conducted among 30 industry leaders to explore trends in consumer interaction.
The non-hazardous, biodegradable, machinable and mouldable plastic has all the characteristics of a tough ''engineering'' material, yet it softens and becomes easily mouldable when heated with just hot water or a hairdryer (62°C) and goes back to a white hard material at 40°C. A real toy for prototypes or vacuum molding forms.
In 2013, students at the University of Maribor in Slovenia designed a “green” 3D printer, known as PrintGREEN, whose output has the ability to grow grass. Conceived by Maja Petek, Tina Zidanšek, Urška Skaza, Danica Rženičnik and Simon Tržan, they developed the device with the help of their mentor Dušan Zidar. The innovative invention prints an earthy mixture in a variety of shapes and sizes, allowing you to express your gardening creativity with unconventional designs. PrintGREEN, which is a specially-modified CNC machine, dispenses a combination of soil, seeds, and water, rather than plastic or metal. The mud holds its form and, over time, grass is able to grow from the organic, printed materials. There are a variety of uses for this type of machine, one of which is the application of single-surface compositions featuring lettering, artwork, and decorative patterns. In addition, PrintGREEN is capable of printing along the z-axis to produce bowls and other sculptural shapes. These…
In a society seemingly obsessed by size, it’s reassuring to know that one Dutch design collective are prepared to take a stand. Letterproeftuin – founded by Yorit Kluitman, Timon Van Der Hijden and Jaron Korvinus – have built a portfolio of interesting and unusual graphic work which emphasises (nay revels) in process as much as finished product.
Insulin Angel tracks the temperature and location of diabetes medication via a Smartphone app.
Type 1 (and even some Type 2) diabetics rely on carefully balanced insulin doses throughout the day to keep them going. Monitoring insulin levels, keeping insulin stored at an optimal temperature range, and keeping track of the medication’s location can be a constant source of stress. Usually, if a diabetic is unsure whether the medication's temperature got thrown off, the batch will be thrown away to be on the safe side—which can waste a lot of money. And this is especially difficult for children and the elderly, who often rely on caretakers to help monitor their health.
Droplet alerts you when you've forgotten to do an important activity take your meds on time, take out the trash via a Smartphone app.
What if you pet fish could remind you to feed them, or your trash could remind you it needs to go out, or your medication could remind you to take it on time? Droplet, a new smart reminder button that’s currently funding on Kickstarter, makes all this possible.
Who needs sensors and circuit boards when you have ultrasonic waves?
Even the simplest iPhone dock or gamepad is a relatively complex device, filled with complex electronics that allow you to press buttons or turn knobs to activate the right circuits and send a signal like "turn the volume up" to your iPhone.
But a new project led by Gierad Laput and Eric Brockmeyer, in a collaboration between Disney Research and Carnegie Mellon, has the potential to rip the circuits out of your smartphone accessories, and create new interactions through nothing more than cheap, 3-D printable plastic. The project is called Accoustraments. Rather than depending on electrical signals to recognize knob turns and button presses, Accoustraments treats a smartphone accessory like an instrument.
Maker Faire est le plus grand événement au monde qui regroupe ateliers, présentations et conférences autour des thèmes de la créativité, la fabrication et le mouvement Do it Yourself (Faites les vous même). Maker Faire est un évènement pour tous les adeptes des technologies, artisans, éducateurs, inventeurs, hobbyistes, ingénieurs, clubs de science, auteurs, artistes ou encore étudiants. Tous ces “Makers” viennent à la Maker Faire pour présenter ce qu’ils font et partager ce qu’ils ont appris avec un public composé de familles, de professionnels et d’amateurs curieux de découvrir le phénomène du Maker Movement.
Aujourd’hui La Foire de Paris veut s’engager dans la nouvelle révolution industrielle avec Maker Faire l’événement international du mouvement des Makers.

Last week Niklas Roy proposed students at the School of Art and Design Offenbach build computers out of cardboard. Not really knowing at all where this will lead to, results included an information distribution knot, a mechanical NAND gate, a Speedway PRO 1000 racer game and his own digital cardboard plotter.

Programmable Materials consist of material compositions that are designed to become highly dynamic in form and function, yet they are as cost-effective as traditional materials, easily fabricated and capable of flat-pack shipping and self-assembly. These new materials include: self-transforming carbon fiber, printed wood grain, custom textile composites and other rubbers/plastics, which offer unprecedented capabilities including programmable actuation, sensing and self-transformation, from a simple material.
Nearly every industry has long desired smarter materials and robotic-like transformation from apparel, architecture, product design and manufacturing to aerospace and automotive industries. However, these capabilities have often required expensive, error-prone and complex electromechanical devices (motors, sensors, electronics), bulky components, power consumption (batteries or electricity) and difficult assembly processes. These constraints have made it difficult to efficiently produce dynamic systems, higher-performing machines and more adaptive products, until now. Our goal is true material robotics or robots without robots.
A number of recent technologies have been brought together to enable a breakthrough in material performance. These technologies include: multi-material 3D/4D printing, advances in materials science and new capabilities in simulation/optimization software. These capabilities have now made it possible to fully program a wide range of materials to change shape, appearance or other property, on demand.
