Exclu : le 1er smart phone compatible Li-Fi

Depuis la techno a fait du chemin et nous sommes en mesure de vous présenter aujourd’hui le premier smart phone compatible Li-Fi qu’elle vient de mettre au point dans la région parisienne, à Vélizy. (Le li-fi est une technologie de communication sans fil qui passe par la lumière en utilisant le spectre optique. Le wi-fi utilise, lui, la partie radio du spectre électromagnétique) Il y a quelques mois pour recevoir ces données numériques il était indispensable d’ajouter au smartphone ou à la tablette un « dongle » extérieur équipé du récepteur Li-Fi.

FireIce Is The Only Thing Between This Guy's Hand And A Blowtorch.

When someone tells Peter Cordani that it can't be done, that's when he just gets started.

FireIce Is The Only Thing Between This Guy's Hand And A Blowtorch

Cordani is the inventor of FireIce, a fire retardant capable of putting out fires as hot as 20,000 degrees Fahrenheit. "The techniques we have been using for the past 50 years were fine, at the time, but you can see that they're being outgunned," he told The Huffington Post. Corrosion Control & Waterproof Coatings. Mapping Global Human Activity. Air traffic routes between North America and Europe It is absolutely astonishing that our world has reached a population exceeding 7 billion, as of this past Sunday.

Mapping Global Human Activity

With so many people occupying our world over many centuries, and with the number steadily growing, we're all bound to have had a significant impact on the planet. Luckily, Canadian scientist Felix Pharand-Deschenes has created visuals of our planet equipped with statistical graphics to represent various human influences on this home we call Earth.

Pharand-Deschenes' Anthropocene Mapping project marks the paths of human activity including roadways, railways, airway traffic, internet cables, electricity transmission lines, and underwater data cables. He acquired all his factual information from various US government agencies. The visually stunning maps are now a piece of history. Trends-technology-timeline-large.jpg (2000×1405) Wimoto motes - Your Sixth Sensor. Wimotos are a family of small, wireless sensors for your iPhone, iPad, Android, Linux or Raspberry Pi device that measure environmentals such as ambient temperature, humidity, light, soil moisture, soil temperature, object temperature, human presence and movement.

They last for about a year on a single battery and don't require an Internet connection to work. You can upload your data to our cloud service for analysis via our free app, or use the optional Wimoto Cloud Cube to do it for you in realtime via Wifi. Instead of launching a weather app, wouldn't it be nice to know what the weather right outside your home is right now? AirCasting. The Transparency Grenade by Julian Oliver (@julian0liver) – Design Fiction for Leaking Data. Provocations within The Critical Engineering Manifesto (2011) state that reliance on specific technologies are “both a challenge and a threat” and that “the exploit is the most desirable form of exposure”.

The Transparency Grenade by Julian Oliver (@julian0liver) – Design Fiction for Leaking Data

Julian Oliver is one of the authors of this manifesto and on reviewing his body of work, one can see that the mandate is clearly at the heart of his practice. The Transparency Grenade, Oliver’s most recent endeavour, reimagines the iconic Soviet F1 hand grenade as the chassis for a personal data-leaking device. A concerned individual with physical access to site shrouded in secrecy could simply wait for an opportune moment, pull the pin and create a ‘detonation’ of related data that would be instantly published to the web.

The statement for the project describes the operation of the prototype: With this work Oliver thematically aligns himself with other practitioners of the ‘dark arts’ – artists whose work parses economies of secrecy. Finder - RFID Locator by Chu Wang, Qiujin Kou, Qian Yin & Yonghua Zhang. Key Control Finder is a two-part RFID Locator comprising of the main terminal and tab stickers.

Basically you are supposed to stick the tracking stickers to objects that you tend to misplace often, like keys, phone, wallet etc. Configure the sticker with the appropriate label on the main terminal and you are set to use it. No more lost keys again, yay! Mr. Ghost - iPhone EMF Detector. Do you ever sense a presence in your home when no one is around?

Mr. Ghost - iPhone EMF Detector

That energy fluctuation you're detecting could be a fearsome poltergeist trying to manifest itself back into this world, electromagnetic radiation coming from an electronic device, or a combination of ghosts messing with your electronic devices, like televisions. If you had a PKE(Psycho Kinetic Energy) meter like the Ghostbusters did, detecting paranormal activity would be simple, but until that gets invented, you can just use this cool new Mr. Ghost EMF Detector for iPhone. Just plug the Mr. Ghost EMF antenna into the headphone jack of your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, download the free app, and start detecting the electromagnetic radiation levels around your house.

Sensitive Handheld Signal Jammer of CDMA / GSM / DCS / PHS / WiFi / 3G. The killer of mobile phones or smartphones! Specially designed for shielding of CDMA / GSM / DCS / PHS / WiFi / 3G signals with different brands, the handheld jammer can cut off the cellular phones' signals with large effective coverage and flexible control. Install the four antennas and turn on the mobile signal jammer, you can adjust the intensity of isolation manually. Although a common handheld device, the jammer can be made use of building jamming, or square jamming and so on. Signal jammer is widely to be used in many occasions such as entrance, adult college entrance examination, self-examination and various tertiary institutions; party and government organs, and all kinds of small, medium and large conference rooms, concert halls, theaters; detection centers, brigades, small, medium and large prison; gas stations, oil depots, oil fields, filling stations and other inflammable and explosive places.

Air Quality concerns are constantly in the news lately: Citizens from around the world are looking for ways to determine the PM2.5/PM10 levels in their environments. Optical setup helps researchers hide an event from time. Cloaking devices are one of the inventions of science fiction that have made a few tentative steps towards the real world in recent years. Now, researchers have moved the concept into the fourth dimension, creating a setup that hides a specific point in time from being perceived by observers. Invisibility cloak made from simple mirrors can stop time indefinitely. Researchers at Northwestern University have designed an invisibility cloak that can temporally hide objects for an indefinite period of time. Objects covered by this invisibility cloak wouldn’t disappear from sight, but rather it would appear that time has completely stopped for the cloaked object.

A clock, for example, would continue to tick — but to the human observer, the hands would never move. One use for such a cloaking device is security, where a thief might set up a temporal cloak in front of an object that he intends to steal — so that to any outside observers or security cameras, the theft — the event, in physics terminology — hasn’t yet occurred. There are, of course, lots of military uses as well. The best bit, though, is that the Northwestern invisibility cloak is fashioned out of plain old mirrors, which means that the device should cloak the entire visible light spectrum.

Solar Roadways: The Prototype. The first flexible, fiber-optic solar cell that can be woven into clothes. An international team of engineers, physicists, and chemists have created the first fiber-optic solar cell. These fibers are thinner than human hair, flexible, and yet they produce electricity, just like a normal solar cell. The US military is already interested in weaving these threads into clothing, to provide a wearable power source for soldiers. In essence, the research team started with optical fibers made from glass — and then, using high-pressure chemical vapor deposition, injected n-, i-, and p-type silicon into the fiber, turning it into a solar cell. Functionally, these silicon-doped fiber-optic threads are identical to conventional solar cells, generating electricity from the photovoltaic effect.
