DoorBot -- The Wi-Fi Enabled "Smart" Doorbell

Another awesome video! This one is about a doorbell that lets you know who is at the door. The doorbell has a camera which records who is at the door, and then calls your cellphone when they ring. You are then able to see who is calling you, and you can either answer or ignore the person at the door. This is something that you would always see in movies, but the doorbell and camera did not work together. I would love to have this at my house. However, I would prefer if the doorbell was much more descrete. It would be awesome if the doorbell and camera was still there, but the people at the oor didn't know who was there. The people ringing the bell could speak into a speaker, but they would not know that they are on camera. Watch the video and let me know what you think in the comments below.

Giving smartphones emotional intelligence

Giving smartphones emotional intelligence | New Tech! | Scoop.it

Woud you like this? Your cell phone being able to detect if you were angry or not. While many cell phones now like the iPhone have a personal assistant like Siri, they are not able to detect your emotions. Researchers at the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York have been developing a program similar to Siri, but one that can detect your emotions. It will be an app which you can download to your phone. While there maynot be much use for the app, it is curious to see how useful it can become in helping you out knowing how you may emotionally feel. Check out the article to read more about the app.

Under Armour's New Basketball Shoes

Under Armour's New Basketball Shoes | New Tech! | Scoop.it

Under Armour brings out their new basketball shoes that provide probably the best ankle support for a shoe. While these shoes may look odd, they will be very effective to help protect from ankle injuries. I recently sprained my ankle playing basketball, and now I need to wear ankle braces for a while. However, if I had been playing with these shoes, then I would not be needing to sit out for a while, and wear additional gear. I think this is a great addition to the basketball shoe, and will help many athletes stay healthy.

MIT developing a robotic "Swiss Army Knife"

MIT developing a robotic "Swiss Army Knife" | New Tech! | Scoop.it
An MIT team is developing a robot that has the potential for becoming the most versatile machine ever.

 

This almost seems like an impossible thing. How can a knife be robotic right? Well this new knife is built with the structure of a chain, and they call it the "milli-motein". The engineers are trying to develop this knife that had proteins and atoms that can self adapt to the task. This new technology could very much lead to robots other than knifes, that can adapt to many tasks that we as human can not.

» Foldable Silicon Keyboard for Smartphones and Tablets | New Tech! | Scoop.it

This concept needs to be an actual product. Think about it. How convenient would it be to just pull out a keyboard from your backpack, and connect your phone to it, and then start typing and working on your paper on Google Drive. This would be a very convenient new tool. While not better than a laptop or tablet, this keyboard will make your iPhone or cellphone much better, and useful than it already is.

» Concept Chargers on Street Signs | New Tech! | Scoop.it

This would be awesome! I have seen public charger stations in cities before. However they would charge you about $5 to automatically charge your phone's full battery within minutes. That was also really cool. Yet, I think that if there were public spots like this one all around our cities, then this would benefit us much more, and it would be free! I hope this concept technolog follows through.

Treeasy – a Christmas decoration for lazy minimalists | New Tech! | Scoop.it
Treeasy from José Manuel Rebert Alarcon is an alternative Christmas decoration designed to please those who favor minimalism over mess.

 

This Christmas tree is a pop-up out of a sheet of aluminum. While this tree isn't the traditional Christmas tree, it is still a very clever and creative way to have a Christmas tree. This tree is much more simple, but at the same time it is elegant, and could please many who like this kind of look.

Vancouver has Roads Paved with Recycled Plastic | New Tech! | Scoop.it

Roads made out of plastic? I would have never thought they would do this. However, in Vancouver they have used their recycled plastics to pave roads. This is a great idea which could also provide more grip to the roads. Or would it make it more dangerous in the rain? Check out the article to see more.

UCLA Creates Transparent Solar Cells

UCLA Creates Transparent Solar Cells | New Tech! | Scoop.it

Solar panels have been really helpful in our generation, and their use around the country is increasing. However, we can only use solar panels at the moment as panels that attract the light from the sun and create electricity, but can only be used in terms of not constructing vision or limiting other items. But now that UCLA has created a transparent solar panel, then the solar panels can be incorporated into windows which would dramatically save energy. Imagine if every window on a sky scrapper was updated to the transparent solar panels. That building woud be able to provide a geat percentage of the electricty that it uses, if not all of it. Read more on the article to see how UCLA did it.

World's Fastet Train!

World's Fastet Train! | New Tech! | Scoop.it

The fastest train today might be the Amtrak Acela, which runs at 110 MPH. However, Japan is building a new train that will float on a cushion of Electromagnetism allowing the train to travel at speeds of 311 PMH. This is just insane, but the new train technology is even more impressive. The design of this train will be muchquiter, smoother, and will reduce maintennance costs in the long run. The initial investment might be expensive, but the benefits of this technology are well worth it. The new technology will inspire other trains to update and also use the electro magnetic fields to travel.

Spying Mannequins

Spying Mannequins | New Tech! | Scoop.it

An Italy-based company named Almax, has developed mannequins that can watch what you are doing in the store. We can all agree that some of these mannequins can be creepy, and at times it feels as if they were watching us. Well soon enough, we might enter a store where these mannequins can actually record what we are doing. These pricy security cameras are a great idea for retail stores where they could expect higher theft, and catch their theifs out of guard. However, the price for one of these is around $5,125. Almax reports that there are a total of 5 stores that have begun to use these security mannequins in Europe and America. These mannequins are called EyeSee and some interestng capabilities other than just watching you are that they can identify the customer's age, gender, and race. Check out the article to see more.

Playing Catch and Juggling with a Humanoid Robot

This is awesome!! Disney has created and developed a humanoid robot that can play catch  with you. I'm sure that this will be used as an attraction at their amusement parks. However, this robot has some very life-like reactions, even when it drops the ball. I'm impressed with this technology, and I can't fully describe how amazing and fun this looks. Check out the video.

Meet Porter. The World's First Driving Dog.

This is just awesome! The SPCA which is the society fighting cruelty against animals has taught 3 dogs how to drive. The video is just a campaign to show people that these animals are smart, and need a home to live. While this may not be new technology. The fact that dogs can be taught to drive is awesome. Who knows? We might actually have dogs operating cars or drving something in the future. Watch the video. Its pretty cool.

Snowbull Sled

A new and innovatve sled. The snowbull sled uses skis and veryclever mehanisms to operate it. You are able to drive the sled by leaning more on one side or the other, and even brake. However, this looks a little uncomfortable. In order to stop you have to lean back, when you are already laying flat. This just seems like the brake could have been incorporated in some other way. Overall, this is some pretty cool new technology which could be fun to try out. Check out the video.

Chevrolet and Michigan Technological University have teamed up to build a new race tricycle for wounded veterans.

 

The students at the University of Michigan Technological department, have collaborated  to develop a new cycle made specifically for disabled veterans and athletes. This new tricycle is designed so that the person in the seat can lean forward and this will provide enertia for the cycle to move forward. However, this bike has even been built with the idea in mind that the athletes will put a lot of strain on the bicycle. In addition, the cycle is safer than the usual wheelchair, and will provide futher restraints that will keep the person safely kept in the chair.

» Waterproof and solar-powered iPhone case "AQUA TEK S" | New Tech! | Scoop.it

Wow. Talk about bulky. However, even though this case is very bulky,  its a great breakthrough. This case will not only protect your phone from tough hits, but also from water, and will charge at it the same time. The back of the case is built with small solar panels that can gather up energy from the sun. This would be a great phone case if your going on a journey such as a camping trip, where your phone is exposed to water, and outlets are not easily accessible.

 This new concept is a solar panel, that is flexible enough to roll up to the size and shape of a standard battery. This new technology will help out immensely. How cool would it be to just recharge your batteries by laying out the solar panels in the sun! The only thing  that I would worry about is how long these solar panels last after rolling them up over and over, and if anything could rip open.

These roads could very possiblybe implemented in the near future. In the article it says that the road will be painted with lines, or things like snowflakes that wil glow or appear due to changes in the weather. They will also appear with changes in lights, and temperature. This could be very helpful because sometimes on the road we may not be able too see all the lines very well.
