Body tracking has become somewhat commonplace given the rise of fitness trackers, so the Smith Lowdown Focus sunglasses look to push this to the next level with a new kind of sensing technology. Incorporating noninvasive EEG sensors, the sunglasses are able to track and measure your brain activity and send the data to the Smith Focus app when you are training. Users can then see detailed insights regarding their cognitive activity to help them further develop their level of focus and train with a more effective hand.  The Smith Lowdown Focus sunglasses identify the need for complex tracking technology for consumers that is discreet, results oriented and able to be easily incorporated into one's lifestyle without requiring major changes to schedule.

Invizbox's routers are intended to stop people from installing a VPN on every device connecting to their network

Richard Platt's curator insight, September 20, 2017 10:49 PM

This year both Norton and Asus have released new, privacy-focussed routers. In an age where attacks on data are on the rise, upgrading router hardware is pretty much a no-brainer.

Underlying these big-name launches has been spike in the number of startups developing similar products. One of these, Invizbox, has revealed two new devices.  The Ireland-based startup, which will be speaking at WIRED Security later this month, claims its two new routers will secure all internet traffic. The InvizBox 2 and InvizBox 2 Pro work by being plugged into an existing router via an Ethernet cable. From here, wireless devices connect to the box over Wi-Fi.  Both devices are well-designed (well, for a router) and the InvizBox 2 has a quad-core ARM processor, dual band Wi-Fi, 256MB of RAM and the ability to handle gigabit internet. The higher-end product has a faster processor and more RAM. "While most of us have nothing to hide, InvizBox 2 encrypts all your internet traffic, protecting it from prying eyes," the company says in a statement. Invizbox is running a crowdfunding campaign for both the new devices.

Human factors limit smart cities more than technology | Lab404 - Digital Media, Network and Space Lab | Scoop.it
Industry experts are urging city leaders to focus more on how smart cities work in conjunction with the humans who inhabit them.
André Lemos's insight:
A key sentiment that emerged from the conference was that leaders in government and industry need to stay focused on the larger smart city picture and not get caught up in the latest gee-whiz technology. Specifically, there needs to be greater focus on meshing emerging tech with the current political and economic systems that affect citizens

The automated city: do we still need humans to run public services? | Lab404 - Digital Media, Network and Space Lab | Scoop.it
From driverless buses to an AI council worker called Amelia, municipal services are becoming increasingly automated. But what does that mean for the future of our cities – and the jobs market?
André Lemos's insight:
“Smart cities” offer a seductive vision of a world where everything runs as smoothly as the latest iPhone. Need a parking space? An app will tell you where one’s available, and notify you (and your friendly neighbourhood parking inspector) when your time is up. It’s the kind of technology many cities are trialling, embedding sensors in streetlights, curbs and buildings to monitor parking, traffic and air pollution – even crime.

Smart cities vs. 'locked-in' cities

Smart cities vs. 'locked-in' cities | Lab404 - Digital Media, Network and Space Lab | Scoop.it
One of the key issues facing modern cities today is municipalities being locked in to technology from a single provider, and instead ensuring they are free to transition to the most convenient products and services for citizen...
André Lemos's insight:
Among the European initiatives to fight against the lock-in of cities is the Fiware (Future Internet Ware) programme, which offers incentives for smart applications in various sectors including smart cities, e-health, transportation, energy, agro-food and media. The platform offers a set of public and royalty-free APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that can be used to develop smart applications suitable for all sectors. Another example is Smarkia, an energy efficiency cloud platform that allows a group of aspiring smart cities, which joined the European project Remourban, to share "knowledge, ideas and success stories." Their aim is to elaborate "a sustainable urban regeneration model through the convergence of energy, mobility and ICT." Read more at: http://phys.org/news/2016-09-smart-cities-locked-in.html#jCp

Toronto, première smart city version Google | Lab404 - Digital Media, Network and Space Lab | Scoop.it

Alphabet, via sa filiale Sidewalk Labs, est à pied d’oeuvre sur la ville du futur au Canada. Un partenariat avec la ville de Toronto va en effet permettre de voir émerger une Smart City pensée « à partir d’Internet ».

Atlantis RH's curator insight, October 19, 2017 11:32 PM

Le 10 juin 2015, Alphabet annonçait la création de Sidewalk Labs, une filiale d’Alphabet ayant pour objectif de « réinventer les villes pour améliorer la qualité de vie ». Elle est dirigée par Dan Doctoroff, ancien directeur général de l’agence d’informations Bloomberg, en charge du développement économique et de la reconstruction à la mairie de New York.

Le premier chantier de Sidewalk Walks vient d’être annoncé. Il va s’agir de construire un quartier entier dans la ville de Toronto.

Google y localisera son siège social canadien. Quelques 300 employés de Google devraient y travailler. Le quartier Quayside situé sur les bords du lac Ontario ambitionne de devenir ainsi un point d’attraction pour les nouvelles technologies. En guise de témoignage de l’importance que le Canada accorde à ce chantier, Justin Trudeau, le Premier ministre du pays, était présent lors de l’annonce du projet.

Un projet à 1 milliard

Dans une première phase, Sidewalk Labs prévoit d’investir 50 millions de dollars. Une portion congrue puisque, selon le Wall Street Journal, l’ensemble du projet pourrait coûter jusqu’à 1 milliard de dollars. Parallèlement, Toronto et la province d’Ontario devraient également financer ce projet à hauteur de 1,25 milliard de dollars.

La surface devrait être de 800 hectares. Il va s’agir de repenser l’intégralité de l’organisation de ce quartier, des transports jusqu’à l’infrastructure. Des logements à prix abordables et des systèmes de production d’énergie non polluante sont également prévus. L’infrastructure doit aussi permettre de prévenir les inondations.

Dans une perspective de concertation de la population, des assemblées publiques sont également annoncées à compter du 1er novembre prochain.
