Richard Platt's curator insight, May 11, 2015 7:09 PM

The fact that Apple Watch is designed to be used alongside an iPhone raises another important consideration – your users will not experience your application in isolation on a single a device. They will likely pick and choose the device to interact with, moving from one to another, to meet their needs at a given point in time.  -  As such, it becomes really important to think about system-based design – that is, spending time up-front on a project, considering all the different touch points that your users will engage with your application, and creating a set of related experiences that are clearly designed as one, but that take advantage of and are contextual to each of the device form factors.

Dutch Solar Road makes enough Energy to Power Household

Richard Platt's curator insight, May 11, 2015 7:04 PM

In the first six months since it was installed, the panels beneath the road have generated over 3,000kwh. This is enough to provide a single-person household with electricity for a year.

"If we translate this to an annual yield, we expect more than the 70kwh per square metre per year," says Sten de Wit, spokesman for SolaRoad, which has been developed by a public-private partnership.

"We predicted [this] as an upper limit in the laboratory stage. We can therefore conclude that it was a successful first half year."

The project took cheap mass-produced solar panels and sandwiched them between layers of glass, silicon rubber and concrete.

"This version can have a fire brigade truck of 12 tonnes without any damage," said Arian de Bondt, a director at Ooms Civiel, one of consortium of companies working together on the pilot project.

Pennanen's young company has been working on building this car and its new battery technology for the last four years. The company employs roughly 15 people and has been completely self-financed so far.  -  Pennanen's plan is to get enough interest, investment and orders to build 100 Toroidion 1MW cars and begin delivering them to customers in about two years. He hopes to ultimately mass produce the car, bring the price down significantly and sell it to all kinds of customers, especially those drivers that appreciate Teslas and other electric vehicles.

"Orthosense" by David Schnare, and the game "Seed" by Alexandre Ribeiro da Silva, took top spot out of the thousands of entries from 37 countries -- up from 19 last year. With an incentive like a cash prize pool of $465,000 awarded to 21 of the winners, developers were challenged to blur the lines between human and computer interaction with a camera similar to the one already embedded in many of today's devices, including the HP Envy laptop and Lenovo B50 All-in-One desktop.  -  Utilizing a best-in-class three-dimensional depth sensor, RealSense 3D technology enables new ways to interact, including 22-point hand and finger tracking and gesture recognition, facial detection and tracking, speech recognition, and even background subtraction to create a kind of green screen – without needing a green screen.  -  Think of it as Kinect on steroids.  -  "As rapidly and profoundly as technology continues to advance, one thing remains constant: the need for more human and intuitive ways to interact with it," says Scott Steinberg, a leading analyst, futurist, and author of Make Change Work for You. "Whether scanning in favorite objects, like children's toys, and reprinting them on demand at grandma's house, navigating through 3D models of homes or tradeshow floors with the wave of a hand, or using gesture controls to flip through your music collection, it's only natural for software and hardware developers alike to look to technology solutions such as this that provide more user-friendly and accessible controls."
