Geneva Sound Systems – WorldRadio The Geneva WorldRadio is a contemporary take on the classic world receiver: a radio that could receive all available radio stations of their time, using broadcasting technologies such as FM, longwave, and shortwave. Today, popular local radio stations are mainly broadcast over FM and digital radio, while international and special interest stations are broadcast over the Internet. The new Geneva WorldRadio provides complete access to today’s radio stations, as the classic world receiver did for previous generations. Connect the Geneva WorldRadio using the built-in wireless Bluetooth receiver with an Internet-capable device, such as a smartphone or tablet, and you can stream all available Internet stations. The Geneva WorldRadio features a high-performance audio system that plays mid and high frequencies with absolute accuracy, and produces warm, rich bass below 80Hz. It has a digital color display with touch controls, digital FM tuner, Bluetooth receiver, and alarm clock.

Augmented reality NASA X38 display showing video map overlays including runways and obstacles during flight test in 2000. Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality. By contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one. Augmentation is conventionally in real-time and in semantic context with environmental elements, such as sports scores on TV during a match. Technology Hardware
SmartThings opens up its home automation platform to developers To say SmartThings ' Kickstarter campaign was a success is an understatement: the Internet of Things outfit, which offers a clever array of home automation sensors, routers and smartphone apps, raised more than $1.2 million (over four times the company's original goal), nabbed over 6,000 backers and quickly sold out of its first batch of kits. Naturally, the company isn't stopping there -- it's making good on its goal of providing an open-source platform for developers, as it announced the availability of its Developer and Inventor Toolkit. Now, interested parties can create and develop their own SmartThings, and can collaborate with like-minded folks to come up with even more ways to take advantage of the platform.
