Small World of Words Project Welcome to the small world of words project! Last modified: April 16, 2014 Voor Nederlandstalige informatie, klik hier The small world of words project is a large-scale scientific study that aims to build a map of the human lexicon in the major languages of the world and make this information widely available. In contrast to a thesaurus or dictionary, this lexicon provides insight into what words and what part of their meaning are central in the human mind. This way it enables psychologists, linguists, neuroscientists and others to test new theories about how we represent and process language. Current Project
Connect the Dots: Open-Source Platforms Bring Ideas to Life Quickly Solution providers can bring ideas to life in days and weeks instead of months and years with easy-to-use modular IoT platforms such as Intel® Edison that remove design and innovation complexity. Getting excited about the addition of new and novel sensors to the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions is so easy that we tend to forget that the platforms that allow providers to connect to and process the information from these sensors are just as exciting – in their simplicity. In last week’s edition of Connect the Dots, we discussed some highlights from Sensors Expo, where flexible and stretchable sensors were heralded as the future, and new advances in chemical sensors were shown to solve today’s need for quick and accurate air-quality monitoring. Oddly, given the recent events in Flint, MI, simple and quick water-quality sensor solutions weren’t presented.
Freescale Kinetis based Mbed IoT Starter Kit Ethernet Edition Connects to IBM IoT Cloud ARM, IBM and Freescale have jointly announced Mbed IoT Start Kit – Ethernet Edition at Embedded World 2015 that consists of a Freescale Kinetis Cortex M4 mbed-enabled development board and a sensor IO application shield that interface with IBM Bluemix cloud platform.

We thought this conceptual elephant looked more like a cross between an anteater and a cockroach. The goal of building the Ant-Roach was to demonstrate the carrying capacity and high strength-to-weight ratios possible with inflatable structures. Ant-Roach relies on a number of fabric, inflatable actuators (left) and pneumatic piping (middle) to move.
Code-Free IoT with Arduino and The Tentacle on Octoblu! - Hackster.io If you want to do anything in the Internet of Things space, there's nothing easier to do it than to use Octoblu. With the recent release of our new microcontroller library The Tentacle, any Arduino-ish microcontroller can be used in our flows in a matter of minutes - without writing any custom code! Read more about The Tentacle at it's official documentation page, Getting an Octoblu Account first step when it comes to connecting a microcontroller to Octoblu is to, well, get an account with Octoblu. Prizm - Turn your speakers into a learning music player by Prizm Whether you are alone at home, with family, or partying with friends, Prizm adapts and predicts the music you’ll love. Prizm streams music directly from the Cloud so you don’t even need to use a phone or a computer. You can now discover and enjoy more music with a single hit of a button.
Big Hero 6 and the Current State of the Art in Soft Inflatable Robots This weekend a new Disney movie came out in theaters: Big Hero 6. I'm super excited for this movie, and I'm sure it will be awesome! Even better, the main supporting character is a big, soft inflatable robot named Baymax. As long-time readers of Hizook will undoubtedly know, I'm a huge proponent of inflatable robots -- they have challenges, but they're tough to beat in terms of cost and power-to-weight ratio!
