Writers and movie-makers have gotten us to dream about this for years: a sexy transparent glass panel which we can type or doodle around to interact with a computer system.

The future of peripherals, in a glass pane

This is not too far away from us, now that a Kickstarter project is underway to bring this to fruition. A sci-fi-esque keyboard or trackpad made solely out of a pane of glass may be coming to you soon. Engineer, inventor and entrepreneur Jason Giddings brings this technology to reality with his Kickstarter project titled Multi-Touch Keyboard and Mouse. Using the existing technology called Frustrated Total Internal Reflection (FTIR), light from mounted LEDs on one edge of the keyboard panel will bounce internally in a zig-zag path against the two large surfaces of the glass at its rest state. When typing begins, contact is made between the glass panel and the finger, breaking the internal reflection and thus directing the light downwards into a camera. Source: Gizmodo, Kickstarter.

'SixthSense' is a wearable gestural interface that augments the physical world around us with digital information and lets us use natural hand gestures to interact with that information.

SixthSense - a wearable gestural interface (MIT Media Lab)

We've evolved over millions of years to sense the world around us. When we encounter something, someone or some place, we use our five natural senses to perceive information about it; that information helps us make decisions and chose the right actions to take. But arguably the most useful information that can help us make the right decision is not naturally perceivable with our five senses, namely the data, information and knowledge that mankind has accumulated about everything and which is increasingly all available online. Although the miniaturization of computing devices allows us to carry computers in our pockets, keeping us continually connected to the digital world, there is no link between our digital devices and our interactions with the physical world. . . . some more pictures are coming soon.

The Smartboard Alternative for $40 – Technology for Academics

You can go this route instead. There you are in class and you write on your whiteboard (or chalkboard, I hear those still exist) the most perfect explanation of whatever it is you explain. Wouldn’t you love to be able to save that to share with future students? Or perhaps you’re part way through the material you want to cover when class ends. Don’t you wish you could save what you’ve written so you could start there next class?

Making analytics work through practical project management

By Erick Wikum Where does your organization fit into the project management spectrum shown in Figure 1? On one end of the spectrum, labeled “Do Stuff,” organizations focus on action and take a rather laissez-faire approach to project management, with little documentation and only loosely defined deliverables, timelines and budgets. On the other end of the spectrum, labeled “Buttoned Up,” organizations take a disciplined approach to planning, monitoring and executing projects, with liberal documentation and carefully defined deliverables, schedules and budgets. This approach is common among external consulting groups by necessity, since clients insist on having answers to the three key questions of project management: what is to be delivered, when and at what cost?

Why should analytics professionals care about project management?
