IDEO's Sandy Speicher on Constructivism: The uncomfortable secret to creative success is "disequilibrium" Copenhagen, Denmark Sometimes, there can be too much of a good thing. Every so often, from California to Germany, there’s news of “negative electricity prices,” a peculiar side effect of global efforts to generate clean energy. As we build more and more renewable-power capacity in efforts to meet the emissions-reduction goals of the Paris climate agreement, these situations will become more common. On a mildly chilly day in April, with the smell of poo in the air, I met one of these startups at a sewage-water treatment plant in Copenhagen, Denmark. In other words, when scaled up, Electrochaea’s process could be an answer to one of the biggest problems of the 21st century: energy storage, while also making a dent in cutting emissions. This article is part of The Race to Zero Emissions series investigating carbon-capture technology. The battery problem The biggest problem with wind and solar energy is that they’re intermittent. Except it’s not that easy. Store it another way The green goo
Augmented Reality In Education? Here Are 20 Examples Augmented reality is exactly what the name implies — a medium through which the known world fuses with current technology to create a uniquely blended interactive experience. While still more or less a nascent entity in the frequently Luddite education industry, more and more teachers, researchers, and developers contribute their ideas and inventions towards the cause of more interactive learning environments. Many of these result in some of the most creative, engaging experiences imaginable, and as adherence grows, so too will students of all ages. Second Life:Because it involves a Stephenson-esque reality where anything can happen, Second Life proved an incredibly valuable tool for educators hoping to reach a broad audience — or offering even more ways to learn for their own bands of students.
Forget The 10,000-Hour Rule; Edison, Bezos, & Zuckerberg Follow The 10,000-Experiment Rule Most people think that Edison invented the first light bulb. They’re wrong. In fact, Edison was spectacularly late to the game. In 1878, when the 36-year-old inventor decided to focus on building a light bulb, 23 others had already invented early versions called arc lamps, some of which were being used commercially to light streets and large buildings. So how did Edison win in such a crowded field when he was so far behind? He and his team spent a year working day and night doing thousands of experiments. Edison would go on to pioneer five different multibillion-dollar fields with his invention factory: electricity, motion pictures, telecommunications, batteries, and sound recording. What was the key to Edison’s incredible success? The technique is just as powerful today. Bezos and Zuckerberg aren’t saying that experimentation is one of many strategies.

New Realities: VR, AR, MR and the Future of Design Advances in artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and virtual reality mean fresh design opportunities for designers. The digital and technological landscape is constantly changing, and in many ways accelerating. Designers tasked to come up with innovative ideas have to keep track of what is trending and where the creative opportunities are. Recognizing the changes that are occurring in the industry will help designers design smarter and make more informed creative decisions. In the technology adoption life cycle, “Innovators” are the smallest group, yet the most successful. They are followed by “Early Adopters,” then “Early Majority,” and later, “The Majority,” or everyone else. Let’s look at some creative opportunities and emerging technologies and why, in order to design the future, designers need to think beyond the screen into new realities. A New Technology Landscape: Human-assisted AI, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Mixed Reality What Is Artificial Intelligence?

VR , AR, & MR in Education. Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and… | by Roh... Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Mixed Reality are all changing the way we experience reality. To put it simply, VR is an entirely computer-generated world. It is an immersive recreation of a world simulated by a computer programme. The user experiences this virtual world primarily through visual and aural inputs. In a virtual world, ordinary everyday reality is fully blocked out. AR, on the other hand, is created by layering computer-generated elements over and above existing ordinary reality. Virtual Reality offers elements of the real world in a digital environment. Virtual Reality worlds are usually experienced through headsets (Like Facebook’s Oculus Rift). Mixed Reality is also known as Hybrid Reality is a term still not clearly defined. At any rate, VR and AR are examples of emerging technologies that are growing exponentially. In the immediate future, there will be a huge demand for the creation of content for VR and AR. The EdTech space is saturated with products.
Gasparetto não sabe as leis da vida. – Genetic Aberrations, Mario Savagliani Vamos hoje analisar Luis Antonio Gasparetto, que ficou conhecido a princípio como pintor mediúnico e depois como um dos maiores gurus da autoajuda no Brasil. Uma das maiores qualidades de Gasparetto é o humor. Ele tem um jeito escrachado e eficiente para nos fazer sentir vergonha e enxergar como são ridículas certas bobagens que fazemos na vida, como dar importância excessiva às opiniões dos outros, nossa falta de coragem de sermos nós mesmos sempre receando “se vai cair bem” e o as eternas preocupações na cabeça que ele chama de “amebas” que impedem nosso progresso e a tomada de atitudes mais ousadas, pois sempre pintam um quadro nefasto do porvir que contamina tudo e nos acovarda. Ele é ótimo para essas coisas práticas da vida, pois de um jeito muito pessoal, inventado por ele, escancara nossa pequenez infantil e acuada, de quem não se impõe e não se banca. A maior presunção de Gasparetto é achar que descobriu as leis da vida. É isso que vamos surrar aqui sem misericórdia. Ok. Ok.
VR, AR, MR: Which one is Better? | Hacker Noon These days, new and evolving technology has introduced the world to 3 very fascinating realities, Virtual Reality or VR, Augmented Reality or AR, and Mixed Reality or MR. in this article, you will see what makes them different from each other and how they are contributing in different areas of work.

Mises Brasil - Estilo de vida minimalista, frugal e com extremo conforto? Foi o capitalismo quem permitiu isso A grande notícia sobre o iPhone 7 é a eliminação dos fios do fone de ouvido. O conforto trazido por essa inovação é sem precedentes: você agora não tem aquela tranqueira convoluta e emaranhada, que se enrosca nas coisas ao redor, e que você tem de dobrar pacientemente toda vez que vai guardá-lo. Mais uma inconveniência da vida é abolida. Mais um pequeno progresso ocorre no mundo. Analisando tudo o que ocorreu ao longo dos últimos 15 anos, é impressionante contemplarmos o quanto se tornou possível levar uma vida que parece ser minimalista e, ainda assim, com extremo conforto. Quase tudo está em nossos smartphones e computadores, em não em formato físico, atravancando um espaço precioso em nossas residências. O que torna o minimalismo possível Nas últimas semanas, assisti a vários vídeos sobre o estilo de vida minimalista e devo dizer que, no geral, concordo com seus proponentes. Hoje, todas essas músicas físicas foram substituídas por... um notebook. Lembra-se do catálogo? Uma insanidade.

Visagismo: Descubra qual é o subtom da sua pele | Olho Mágico De acordo com o visagismo, nossa pele pode ser fria ou quente e elas são separadas segundo as estações do ano, podendo ser identificadas a partir de como fica a pele depois de exposta ao sol. As frias são aquelas peles denominadas de inverno, porque essa estação representa os tons opacos como os roxos e azuis fechados, e o verão, das peles quentes, é representado com cores pastel e o azul do céu e do mar. A análise do seu tom de pele só é completa depois de analisar os subtons dela, ou seja, o que está embaixo dela, que é a temperatura que pode ser quente, fria ou neutra. É importantíssimo lembrar que não é a só a cor da pele (aquela que vemos) que importa. Pela análise cromática, pele fria é a que apresenta tons mais rosados e pele quente é a que apresenta tons mais amarelados. Técnicas para identificar seu subtom de pele Os testes devem ser feitos em luz natural. Cor das veias: O primeiro passo é lavar bem o rosto para que saia toda a maquiagem. As cores que combinam com cada tom de pele
What’s the Difference Between AR, VR, and MR? Augmented reality (AR) adds digital elements to a live view often by using the camera on a smartphone. Examples of augmented reality experiences include Snapchat lenses and the game Pokemon Go. Virtual reality (VR) implies a complete immersion experience that shuts out the physical world. Using VR devices such as HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or Google Cardboard, users can be transported into a number of real-world and imagined environments such as the middle of a squawking penguin colony or even the back of a dragon. In a Mixed Reality (MR) experience, which combines elements of both AR and VR, real-world and digital objects interact. Mixed reality technology is just now starting to take off with Microsoft’s HoloLens one of the most notable early mixed reality apparatuses.
