“I’m not going to speculate [about Glass] because time will tell with regards what is the right execution with regards to this idea of “heads-up”, so I think we’ve a lot of work to do, frankly, so I’m not going to speculate about that” Pannenbecker said. “But I think, as I said, this is for me an area that we want to engage in, I mean, this topic of heads-up not this particular solution for example. As I said, there’s a whole bandwidth of opportunities, and I think we as a company need to look very deeply into these opportunities, and then commit.”
"....the development of radically new ICT: new supercomputing technologies to federate and manage the data, to integrate it in computer models and simulations of the brain, to identify patterns and organisational principles that only appear when the data is put together, and to identify gaps to be filled by new experiments."
"...Many of my systems, like Google Glass, modify the view of just one eye. I find this works well. But I arrange the optics so that the camera takes in exactly the same perspective as that eye does. I also position the display so that the wearer sees it directly ahead and doesn’t have to look up (as is necessary with Google Glass), down, or sideways to view it."
.....of the present.
Now.....what will the classroom of the future look like?
"...Now enter Google Glass, a device that allows us to walk around and overlay our entire reality with an Internet connection, put simply. It sounds awesome, but what actually happens when a society adapts to the likes of Google Glass and people completely disconnect from their surroundings? Isn’t that a little troubling to think about? Yes, you can take off the glasses at any time you want to jump back into the real world, but if people planned on taking them off that often there’s really no point in buying them at all. It’d just be easier to check your smartphone when you feel like connecting with others or using Internet-based services and apps.
AS Australia's first female Prime Minister Julia Gillard's fashion choices are poured over, news that her hipster specs have been given the flick for Google glasses will have the nation in a flap.
Ms Gillard yesterday got a chance to try the high-tech glasses which are tipped to cost at least $750USD and will allow users to wear a device that operates a lot like a smartphone. Google glass has motion sensors and GPS and can be controlled by voice commands or head tilts.
The PM got a chance to try out the new specs when she met with Google’s Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette and tried on the frames that designers are hoping to build in such a way that vision-impaired tech fans like Ms Gillard won't be required to wear both their own lenses and Google glass.
With a BS in Industrial Design (Georgia Tech), a minor in textiles manufacturing (Georgia Tech), and a MA in fashion design (Domus Academy, Italy), Clint Zeagler works on projects at the intersection of desire and technology. His research on electronic textiles with the Contextual Computing Group of the GVU center and his course instruction on mobile and ubiquitous computing along with directed electives with companies like Palm push the boundaries of how we interact with electronics on the body. Oh, and they look pretty too.
Each and every one of us is living in a sci-fi novel, and this spills into real life into a million different ways ... like the way that Hollywood location scouts and real estate agents now routinely use unmanned drone aircraft. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have gone from military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan to simply becoming a routine movie industry tool. The FAA isn't too sure about how to deal with the drones of Hollywood.
