Second Surface An environment for creative collaboration is significant for enhancing human communication and expressive activities, and many researchers have explored different collaborative spatial interaction technologies. However, most of these systems require special equipment and cannot adapt to everyday environment. We introduce Second Surface, a novel multi-user Augmented reality system that fosters a real-time interaction for user-generated contents on top of the physical environment. This interaction takes place in the physical surroundings of everyday objects such as trees or houses. Our system allows users to place three dimensional drawings, texts, and photos relative to such objects and share this expression with any other person who uses the same software at the same spot.

Brain-Linked Prosthetic Arm Wins FDA Approval As Our Bionic Future Looms DARPA’s initiative to build a prosthetic arm that’s fully controllable via a wearer’s mind has won approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (via Verge), a key green light that will let it edge closer to wide-scale production and distribution. The next step is to find someone to build the device, and then it can start helping amputees cope with the loss of their limbs. The so-called DEKA-arm uses tech similar to that employed by the MYO armband, detecting electrical impulses in the upper arm before the sever point and interpreting that info to translate it into a gesture. Unlike the MYO, however, this isn’t about turning a regular arm movement into an interface interaction on a computing device – instead, it translates directly to what the movement would’ve been in a natural human arm had the electrical impulse had room to run its course.

SUPERFLEX/Tools Supermarket Tools 1000 Istanbul Biennial Posters distributed in Copenhagen 2000 watt Society Contract Academic Square Cap Upside Down Squeezing into OMsignal's smart shirt of the future Thanksgiving is a time to remember things to be grateful for, stuff yourself with turkey and watch MST3k re-runs.

Graphs Of Wikipedia: Influential Thinkers The internet is big — very big. One such way to investigate all of this free online content is through graphs. The network visualisations by Simon Raper in his fantastic post about graphing the history of philosophy is one example of how to exploit such data. Avea Avea connects directly to your iPhone or iPad using Bluetooth Smart technology, without requiring additional gateways or bridges. But it doesn't stop there: once you have chosen a light scene, the smart LED lightbulb will take care of the rest, not requiring a constant connection to your iPhone or iPad. Connect more than one Avea, and they will automatically coordinate their lighting to create an even more immersive atmosphere. The first thousand days – intestinal microbiology of early life: establishing a symbiosis - Wopereis - 2014 - Pediatric Allergy and Immunology Abstract The development of the intestinal microbiota in the first years of life is a dynamic process significantly influenced by early-life nutrition. Pioneer bacteria colonizing the infant intestinal tract and the gradual diversification to a stable climax ecosystem plays a crucial role in establishing host–microbe interactions essential for optimal symbiosis. This colonization process and establishment of symbiosis may profoundly influence health throughout life. Recent developments in microbiologic cultivation-independent methods allow a detailed view of the key players and factors involved in this process and may further elucidate their roles in a healthy gut and immune maturation. Aberrant patterns may lead to identifying key microbial signatures involved in developing immunologic diseases into adulthood, such as asthma and atopic diseases.

Micro-ritmos turns bacteria and machine learning into spatialized sound - CDM Create Digital Music In the patterns generated by bacterial cells, Micro-ritmos discovers a new music and light. From the Mexican team of Paloma López, Leslie García, and Emmanuel Anguiano (aka Interspecifics), we get yet another marvel of open source musical interface with biological matter. Micro-ritmos from LessNullVoid on Vimeo. The raw cellular matter itself is Geobacter, an anaerobic bacteria found in sediment. And in a spectacular and unintentional irony, this particular family of bacteria was first discovered in the riverbed of the Potomac in Washington, D.C.

Super-Humanizing: Virtual Reality, Music and the Coming Revolution On Monday morning I drove by Candlestick Park as the first demolition crews set to work on the grand old thing. I was on my way to the Palo Alto office of a company called Jaunt, to strap an Oculus headset to my face and watch a fabulously newfangled live concert video from Paul McCartney's Aug. 14 show at Candlestick, billed as the venue's last major event. Soon after I arrived I was led to a conference room where I sat in a comfortable rolling chair in the center of a conference room outfitted with computers and cables.
