Since the beginning of time, visual cultural genocide and the re-appropriation of time has wiped memory from those to whom it means most.
My gut instinct is that the latest idiocy marketing is a failure, a disgrace....to humanity. The image above, one of the most celebrated pieces of time immemorial is precisely what needs discussing at ISTAS'13 and none more so than now...in a time when any attempt to sell a concept knows no boundary.
This could well have be the sign that the Glass is no more than a Wave.....or is it a sign of something else? Are you happy with the latest #glass historical satire? If so why so? If not why not?
"...Sam Paterson is studying Mechanical Engineering and is currently in his penultimate year. Sam joined the team just prior to the 2009 World Solar Challenge and was a key race team member during that campaign. In 2010, Sam was a driving force behind organising for the team to break the Guinness World Record for Fastest Solar Powered Vehicle. He is passionate about improving vehicle efficiency stemming from his background in high performance skiff racing. Also resulting from his involvement in sailing is Sam’s experience with carbon fiber composites, this was further enhanced by leading the manufacturing effort of the 2011 top shell with a team of fifteen."
Sam is looking for opportunities to team up with Google Glass for documenting and connecting this project to the wider international audience.
A major aim of SurPRISE is to identify factors which contribute to the shaping of security technologies as effective, non-privacy-infringing and socially legitimate security devices. In particular, SurPRISE will pay attention to the way in which the problem-solution framework is constructed and re-constructed over time by the lay public.
SurPRISE re-examines the relationship between security and privacy, which is commonly positioned as a ‘trade-off’. Where security measures and technologies involve the collection of information about citizens, questions arise as to whether and to what extent their privacy has been infringed. This infringement of individual privacy is sometimes seen as an acceptable cost of enhanced security. Similarly, it is assumed that citizens are willing to trade off their privacy for enhanced personal security in different settings. This common understanding of the security-privacy relationship, both at state and citizen level, has informed policymakers, legislative developments and best practice guidelines concerning security developments across the EU.
"....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."
"...People willing to build a 1 mile, door to door, drone delivery system based on an emerging number of open standards. They'll find a reason to make it valuable. It will scratch their itch in a way no other system could. "
.....of the present.
Now.....what will the classroom of the future look like?
I wonder what #yolandi would create with #glass?
"...When we put on these surveillance devices, we all become spies, or scrooglers, of everything and everyone around us."
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.
The place to be if you are talking DIY Drones is here.
Just one of many "success" stories- from tinkering/hobbyist to commercial organisation. Read the post below by Robero Navoni from "diy drones" posted on 17 Feb 2013.
"After more than five years of experimentation the comunity of VirtualRobotix decided to grow up and turn into a cooperative company.
In the coming months in Italy, you can use our drones not only for scientific or fun, but also for commercial purposes.
Within VirtualRobotix we have assembled the best Italian companies with the ability to develop drones, very appasionate and expertise, today I present to you, the first professional product: a frame in full carbon developed by the group that designs SpecialDrones.
In these video is possible to see different configuration , and the advanced application where our frame can do great performances"
