Cerf on science: The father of the Internet talks string theory, the physics of Angry Birds & more

Cerf on science: The father of the Internet talks string theory, the physics of Angry Birds & more | saurabhworld.in | Scoop.it

When Vint Cerf talks about Google's upcoming global Science Fair, you can hear the infectious enthusiasm in his voice.

Again, Cerf sees some aspects of that fictional world becoming reality, especially with regard to the Internet of Things. “The Android OS is turning out to be of interest… in other devices, things that consume electricity, appliances around the house,” he said.

 

And of course, there’s Google’s revolutionary self-driving cars.

 

“We’re very proud of those cars,” said Cerf. “This is turning out to be an incredible period of time when we’re able to harness the power of computing in small devices and also harnessing huge computing power in the form of clouds.”

How the "Internet of Things" Is Turning Cities Into Living Organisms

How the "Internet of Things" Is Turning Cities Into Living Organisms | saurabhworld.in | Scoop.it

"With a little help from what's called the Internet of Things, engineers are transforming cities from passive conduits for water into dynamic systems that store and manage it like the tissues of desert animals. By using the Internet to connect real-world sensors and control mechanisms to cloud-based control systems that can pull in streams from any other data source, including weather reports, these efforts enable conservation and money-saving measures that would have been impossible without this virtual nervous system."

Twine : Listen to your world, talk to the Internet

Twine is a a new way to connect your things to the internet. A project created by two MIT Media lab graduates (David Carr and John Kestner) and currently seeking funding on Kickstarter (Looking for $35,000 and ending on Jan 3rd 2012) the 2.5" object provides WiFi connectivity, internal and external sensors, and two AAA batteries that keep it running.

 

Where Twine really starts to shine is in its service backend where you can control and set up triggers to activate a palette of available conditions and actions (ala http://ifttt.com/) like sending out authorized Text messages, Twitter posts, email, or even to Configure HTTP requests based on the objects sensor activity and the rules and conditions you set.

An example of this is having your Twine text message you when your laundry is finished, or alerting you by email if moisture is detected on your basement floor. The number of applications you can imagine with this device and the service is endless.


Learn more about the project and its creators by visiting: http://supermechanical.com/ or help bring it to life by contributing on the Kickstarter page here.
