Moona Temperature Controlled Pillow at CES 2019 | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Quality of sleep very much depends on how comfortable your sleeping environment is. Factors such as noise and light can cause disturbances, but so can heat. In particular, many people tend to flip their pillow during the night to cool the head a bit, which provides immediate comfort and helps to fall back asleep.

The Innovations Closing Africa’s Electric Power Gap

The Innovations Closing Africa’s Electric Power Gap | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Humanity has never before had such resources, knowledge, and technology at its disposal — yet it is a long way from translating those advances into decent lives for all the world’s people. We believe that innovation by businesses large and small can play a central role in closing that gap and solving the world’s challenges. Africa’s shortage of electric power is one of the greatest such challenges, and the push to electrify the continent provides inspiring examples of entrepreneurial solutions.

Japanese Hotel Fires Robot Staff After They Annoy Human Staff and Guests

Japanese Hotel Fires Robot Staff After They Annoy Human Staff and Guests | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Other robots that were fired in the large cull included two velociraptor receptionists who were intended to greet guests and assist with check-ins, but the robots were not able to manually photocopy the guest passports - a requirement when checking into a Japanese hotel - so again their tasks were being taken over by humans, thus rendering the robots useless.

Beeyond's insight:

Ahead of Artificial Intelligence, it seems that robots can also mimic Natural Stupidity... Cool.

You Won’t Hear This Word On The Street

You Won’t Hear This Word On The Street | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

SilentVoice relies on a different way of speaking and a different way of picking up that sound. Instead of traditional dictation in which we exhale while facing a microphone, it is necessary to place the microphone less than two millimeters from the mouth, usually against the lips, and use ingressive speech which is just whispering while inhaling. The advantage of ingressive over egressive speech is that without air being blown over the microphone, the popping of air gusts is eliminated. With practice, it is as efficient as normal speaking but that practice will probably involve a few dizzy spells from inhaling more than necessary.

Three-Photon Imaging Gives Unprecedented View Into Brain's Visual Cortex | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Three-photon microscopy is an emerging imaging technique that scientists have been perfecting over the last few years. At MIT, this has led to the first ever look into the neural activity of the entire visual cortex of an awake mouse. The researchers were even able to view the neural activity in the subplate below the visual cortex, an area whose functionality is not well understood.

Asymmetrically strained quantum dots with non-fluctuating single-dot emission spectra and subthermal room-temperature linewidths

Asymmetrically strained quantum dots with non-fluctuating single-dot emission spectra and subthermal room-temperature linewidths | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

The application of colloidal semiconductor quantum dots as single-dot light sources still requires several challenges to be overcome. Recently, there has been considerable progress in suppressing intensity fluctuations (blinking) by encapsulating an emitting core in a thick protective shell. However, these nanostructures still show considerable fluctuations in both emission energy and linewidth. Here we demonstrate type-I core/shell heterostructures that overcome these deficiencies.
