Vision Boards Help Visualize Goals In addition to the more traditional way of making a vision board on a bulletin board or poster board, there are many other ways of creating your own personalized dream board. In the sections that follow I have included information on the different ways of creating a vision board. Creating a vision board on a wall is a way of making a more permanent vision board. Using a journal is a way of having a portable vision board. Computer programs, presentation programs and specialized programs can be used to make a dream board on your computer. You might even want to create a dream board as your background image that is displayed on your computer, your browser (iGoogle or Netvibes or on your iPhone. Vision boards can be created online using different online programs such as Google Documents or Google Presentations, Prezi and special vision board program. For the video inclined - moving vision boards can be created from presentations and then edited in Windows or Mac programs.

Translation Cloud - Professional Language Translation of Documents Advanced humanoid Roboy to be ‘born’ in nine months Roboy (credit: Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, University of Zurich) Meet Roboy, “one of the most advanced humanoid robots,” say researchers at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of the University of Zurich. Their 15 project partners and over 40 engineers and scientists are constructing Roboy as a tendon-driven robot modeled on human beings (robots usually have their motors in their joints, giving them that “robot” break-dance look), so it will move almost as elegantly as a human. Roboy will be a “service robot,” meaning it will execute services independently for the convenience of human beings, as in the movie Robot & Frank. And since service robots share their “living space” with people, user-friendliness and safety, above all, are of great importance, roboticists point out. Service robots are already used in a wide variety of areas today, including for household chores, surveillance work and cleaning, and in hospitals and care homes.

And the statistics over the last 20 years prove as much. Perhaps even more impressively, 20 years ago around 600,000 cars were stolen in the UK each year.

Join us for The Informal Economy Symposium , October 12 2012, Barcelona | Claro Partners We see “the informal economy” as short-hand for a lot of different under-the-radar, non-recognised, untracked, unsanctioned, disregarded and often disparaged but very real and substantial commercial activities that are taking place all around the world, in both emerging and developed markets. The development of these informal commercial activities are driven by both necessity and by opportunity, but they also still have symbiotic relationships to formal economic structures, such as mature businesses, governments, financial institutions, or business analysts/evaluators. It seems that many people mistakenly see these informal commercial activities as transient, soon-to-be absorbed into formal structures, to be stamped out, or conversely to be studied and copied by formal economic structures. And herein lies the tantalising dilemma of the informal economy. Our goals are:

vous Pascal Minguet from Biarne ? Net-iki : le premier fablab rural français Pascal Minguet FABLAB from Jean Michel Billaut on Vimeo. Pour contacter Pascal Minguet : (Comme on pourra le voir dans ce billautshow sur google maps, Biarne se trouve dans le Jura, un peu au nord de Dôle.. A noter que nous avons été rejoint dans le studio par Serge Meunier sur son Ipad - qui n'a pas beaucoup posé de questions - il m'a dit qu'il avait le trac... Le mouvement des "makers" commence à se développer en France.. Pourquoi donc, Grand Dieu, créer un fablab à Biarne ? Pascal Minguet, Reynald Blondeau et Jean Baptiste Fontaine expliquent et surtout présentent leur domaine, logé dans une ancienne école de Biarne, et financé par les élus locaux (si, si..) Comment fabriquer une pièce ? Fichier envoyé ensuite sur l'imprimante 3D du fablab, que Pascal nous présente (une makerbot)... Combien d'adhérents au fablab ? Plusieurs points ont été évoqués : 1/ le copyright et les brevets.. le fabricant de la fenêtre a-t-il une brevet sur son produit ? 5/ etc..

How Products Are Made (1) The Loop Co.Design: business + innovation + design Qui sommes-nous ? - Perspectives Urbaines Perspectives Urbaines est un rassemblement informel et mouvant, au service d'objectifs flous, toujours à redéfinir. Les personnes qui l'animent n'ont en commun qu'un double constat. La ville est aménagée par une série de spécialistes. C'est leur parole seule qui valide ou non ce qu'il faut faire. La « participation » citoyenne ne se réalise que dans des réunions aussi inutiles qu'ennuyeuses ; elles sont sans marge de manoeuvre et sans effet, donc sans participants. Les formations en urbanisme reproduisent ce monopole. Pourtant, la ville est effervescente, c'est un bouillonnement permanent où se font et se défont des liens, où s'inventent des rapports à l'espace et à l'autre sans cesse renouvelés. Nous voulons créer les conditions d'expression d'autres paroles, celles de tous les urbains. La discussion publique est notre moyen premier. Ce dispositif s’adresse à deux types de public. Perspectives Urbaines cherche à accompagner et à préciser ce renouvellement. Partager l'article ! inShare
