I used Google Glass: the future, with monthly updates

This is an otherwise normal specimen of humanity. Normal height, slender build; her eyes are bright, inquisitive. What was a total oddity a year ago, and little more than an experiment just 18 months ago is now starting to look like a real product. But as I release from that handshake and study the bizarre device resting on my greeter’s brow, my mind begins to fixate on a single question: who would want to wear this thing in public?

Sticky TOC engaged! Finding Glass Finding Glass The Glass project was started "about three years ago" by an engineer named Babak Parviz as part of Google’s X Lab initiative, the lab also responsible for — amongst other things — self-driving cars and neural networks. I was about to beta test Glass myself. "Why are we even working on Glass? Steve goes on. I get it. Google-level design Google-level design But seriously.

Way back in 1903, Sir William Crookes was experimenting with the most expensive material on Earth at the time... Radium Bromide. Working in total darkness, he accidentally spilled a small quantity on a thin layer of a special type of activated Zinc Sulfide (ZnS). To make sure he recovered all of the expensive Radium Bromide, he used a magnifying lens to locate every single speck of it. To his amazement, he noticed flashes of light occurring around each tiny grain of the radioactive material. Spinthariscopes were popular items back in their day but they have long since disappeared and been forgotten. The Nuclear Spinthariscope Each Spinthariscope is individually handmade and assembled by our craftsman.

There are two different types of Spinthariscopes available. 10 Futuristic Materials. Lifeboat Foundation Safeguarding Humanity Skip to content Switch to White Special Report 10 Futuristic Materials by Lifeboat Foundation Scientific Advisory Board member Michael Anissimov. 1.

10 Futuristic Materials

Aerogel protecting crayons from a blowtorch. This tiny block of transparent aerogel is supporting a brick weighing 2.5 kg. Aerogel holds 15 entries in the Guinness Book of Records, more than any other material. Carbon nanotubes are long chains of carbon held together by the strongest bond in all chemistry, the sacred sp2 bond, even stronger than the sp3 bonds that hold together diamond. “Metamaterial” refers to any material that gains its properties from structure rather than composition. We’re starting to lay down thick layers of diamond in CVD machines, hinting towards a future of bulk diamond machinery. Diamonds may be strong, but aggregated diamond nanorods (what I call amorphous fullerene) are stronger. Transparent alumina is three times stronger than steel and transparent. InShare11 Materials.

Plasma Rocket Could Travel to Mars in 39 Days

As the Webster, Texas, company announced, the VASIMR VX-200 engine ran at 201 kilowatts in a vacuum chamber, passing the 200-kilowatt mark for the first time. The test also marks the first time that a small-scale prototype of the company's VASIMR (Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket) rocket engine has been demonstrated at full power. "It's the most powerful plasma rocket in the world right now," says Franklin Chang-Diaz, former NASA astronaut and CEO of Ad Astra. The company has signed an agreement with NASA to test a 200-kilowatt VASIMR engine on the International Space Station (ISS) in 2013. The engine could provide periodic boosts to the ISS, which gradually drops in altitude due to atmospheric drag. But Ad Astra has bigger plans for VASIMR, such as high-speed missions to Mars.

Wind turbine creates water from thin air

French company, Eole Water, has invented a wind turbine that can generate water from humid air. The technology offers a clean and sustainable way to provide water to rural communities, says Eole Water director of marketing, Thibault Janin.

Descriptive Camera. The Descriptive Camera works a lot like a regular camera—point it at subject and press the shutter button to capture the scene.

Descriptive Camera

However, instead of producing an image, this prototype uses crowd sourcing to output a text description of the scene. Modern digital cameras capture gobs of "parsable" metadata about photos such as the camera's settings, the location of the photo, the date, and time, but they don't output any information about the content of the photo.

The Descriptive Camera only outputs the metadata about the content. As we amass an incredible amount of photos, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage our collections. Imagine if descriptive metadata about each photo could be appended to the image on the fly—information about who is in each photo, what they're doing, and their environment could become incredibly useful in being able to search, filter, and cross-reference our photo collections.

Viola! Flagged. Which VPN Providers Really Take Anonymity Seriously? As detailed in yesterday’s article, if a VPN provider carries logs of their users’ activities the chances of them being able to live up to their claim of offering an anonymous service begins to decrease rapidly.

Which VPN Providers Really Take Anonymity Seriously?

There are dozens of VPN providers, many of which carry marketing on their web pages which suggests that the anonymity of their subscribers is a top priority. But is it really? Do their privacy policies stand up to scrutiny? We decided to find out. Over the past two weeks TorrentFreak contacted some of the leading, most-advertised, and most talked about VPN providers in the file-sharing and anonymity space. 1. 2. This article does not attempt to consider the actual quality of service offered by any listed provider, nor does it consider whether any service is good value for money.

Nicholas Merrill is planning to revolutionize online privacy with a concept as simple as it is ingenious: a telecommunications provider designed from its inception to shield its customers from surveillance.

This Internet provider pledges to put your privacy first. Always.

Merrill, 39, who previously ran a New York-based Internet provider, told CNET that he's raising funds to launch a national "non-profit telecommunications provider dedicated to privacy, using ubiquitous encryption" that will sell mobile phone service and, for as little as $20 a month, Internet connectivity. The ISP would not merely employ every technological means at its disposal, including encryption and limited logging, to protect its customers. It would also -- and in practice this is likely more important -- challenge government surveillance demands of dubious legality or constitutionality. A decade of revelations has underlined the intimate relationship between many telecommunications companies and Washington officialdom. Like the eavesdropping system that President George W.

Epson's Android-Powered Glasses Are Out of Sight. Epson (yes the guys that make printers), has invented what could be the coolest headwear since Geordi La Forge's VISOR on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The Epson Moverio BT-100 is a wearable transparent display that runs on Android. The Moverio uses micro-projectors to project the equivalent of an 80-inch screen into your eyes, and is capable of displaying both 2D and 3D content. You can even load apps onto it, thanks to the device being able to connect to Wi-Fi and having access to the Amazon App Store. The glasses are slightly larger than normal sunglasses, and have an attached control pad for navigating about the Android interface. The control pad has a D-Pad and a touchpad, as well as a microSD card slot for additional storage. Now before you go running out to buy yourself a set of Android powered glasses, there are a few things you should be aware of: The Moverio is aimed at developers and is priced at $699--not exactly pocket change for the average person.
