How to open microchip & see what's inside? via @CyberPunk 

Microchips - are indeed can be considered a black box - as long as it's working you normally don't look inside. But what if you want to?
Farid Mheir's insight:

For those of you that wonder what lies underneath those black squares that power your computers and cell phones, this short paper will show you.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Pretty much everything you own these days is powered by a thing like that. You need to know what's inside, if only just to know.

Why The Human Body Will Be The Next Computer Interface via @Wuxia

Think about this scenario: You see someone at a party you like; his social profile is immediately projected onto your retina—great, a 92% match. By staring at him for two seconds, you trigger a pairing protocol. He knows you want to pair, because you are now glowing slightly red in his retina screen. Then you slide your tongue over your left incisor and press gently. This makes his left incisor tingle slightly. He responds by touching it. The pairing protocol is completed.
Farid Mheir's insight:

A very good review of the human computer interfaces and what the future may hold for us.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

We cannot hold a mouse and keyboard in our hands to interact with physical world objects that have been digitized. Think of a warehouse employee that needs to interact with an automated shelves to fetch a specific product. Today we would use buttons on a mobile phone touchscreen. But would it not be simpler if we could simply interact with the shelves itself in ways that our body would recognize, then send appropriate commands to the devices we interact with? 

 

In the article, the far fetched story about the couple in a bar may not be very realistic but it provides some very useful insights about how to leverage our bodies to do things we cannot with our devices today, for privacy reasons for example. Very interesting.

Now anyone can make cool hardware and, thanks to Arduino, it is easier than ever to connect your devices to the Internet and take in data from the outside world. The ESLOV IoT Invention Kit is an official Arduino product that adds Internet of Things capabilities to your hardware products. Trying to build a connected fridge to beat Samsung? Go for it with the ESLOV. Want to knock Sony off its perch? Try popping an ESLOV unit onto your Arduino board and take on major manufacturers from your living room.

Farid Mheir's insight:

Describes a new set of hardware components to build IoT solutions.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

It is with hardware devices like these that the penetration of digital in our daily lives will grow. In recent years, we've seen Arduino, Raspberry Pi and other hardware toolkits that simplify the prototyping and innovation to move the web, sensors, cameras, and other digital devices that bridge the real world with virtual one.
