Augmented Contact Lenses Cover Your Eye with a Screen of 100s of LEDs | Inhabitat
Topic: Technology 11:01 pm EDT, Mar 30, 2010

Want eyesight that would make the Terminator jealous? Well, in a few years, you might be able to say hasta la vista to your normal old contact lenses and hello to the solar powered augmented lenses that University of Washington professor Babak Amir Parviz and his students are working on. The technology would embed hundreds of semitransparent LEDs onto a thin lens, letting wearers experience augmented reality right through their eyes. And the applications – from health monitoring to just plain bionic sight – could be endless.nullnullnull

Taurus Concept Is Like Hot Segway Bike From the Future | Gadget Lab |
Topic: Technology 11:49 pm EDT, Mar 25, 2010

The Taurus, designed by Erik Lanuza, is pretty much a Segway with a seat (you even control it by leaning forward and back). This alone puts it way closer to a Tron light-cycle than the stand-on dork-mobile. Lanuza sees it as space-efficient, zero-emission vehicle for cities.

GM's two-seater EN-V concept makes 'urban mobility' hip again -- Engadget
Topic: Technology 9:39 pm EDT, Mar 25, 2010

We'll confess -- the Segway did a lot of damage to urban mobility as a whole, but General Motors (of all companies) might have just mended a wound we thought un-mendable. Unveiling today in Shanghai, the two-seater EN-V concept is a play on last year's altogether riveting (albeit forgotten) P.U.M.A., and yes, it seems as if some of those design cues have worked their way into this one as well. The Electric Networked-Vehicle was engineered to "alleviate concerns surrounding traffic congestion, parking availability, air quality and affordability for tomorrow's cities," and they're also fully capable of transforming this place we call Earth into a next-generation Epcot. A trio of designs made their debut -- Jiao (Pride), Miao (Magic) and Xiao (Laugh) -- and we're told that twin electric motors and "dynamic stabilization technology" allow 'em to turn on a dime and operate autonomously (!) using integrated GPS. The Li-ion batteries can be juiced from a conventional wall outlet, and the expected range is around 40 kilometers on a single charge. Best of all? There's built in wireless of some sort, enabling your fellow EN-V owner-friends to keep track of your late-night escapades if you so allow. We know -- you'd buy one of each if these were available today, but mum's the word on when (or if) they'll ever hit the production line; meanwhile, expect something called a "Malibu" to remain in the product pipeline for the better part of next decade.

I wonder how many people will be smashed to pulp in these by SUV's

Blueprint Magazine - Architecture & Design
Topic: Technology 2:06 pm EDT, Mar 16, 2010

In a small shed on an industrial park near Pisa is a machine that can print buildings. The machine itself looks like a prototype for the automotive industry. Four columns independently support a frame with a single armature on it. Driven by CAD software installed on a dust-covered computer terminal, the armature moves just millimetres above a pile of sand, expressing a magnesium-based solution from hundreds of nozzles on its lower side. It makes four passes. The layer dries and Enrico Dini recalibrates the armature frame. The system deposits the sand and then inorganic binding ink. The exercise is repeated. The millennia-long process of laying down sedimentary rock is accelerated into a day. A building emerges. This machine could be used to construct anything. Dini wants to build a cathedral with it. Or houses on the moon.

Crayon Physics Deluxe
Topic: Technology 11:03 am EST, Nov 23, 2008

Crayon Physics Deluxe is a 2D physics puzzle game, in which you get to experience what it would be like if your drawings would be magically transformed into real physical objects. Solve puzzles with your artistic vision and creative use of physics.

Amazing, extraordinarily creative game that looks like so much fun.

Tongue Input Device
Topic: Technology 8:52 pm EDT, Jul 22, 2008

The tongue is not only good for tasting food, but it is extremely versatile by remaining active despite the rest of the body suffering from massive trauma or disease. This makes the tongue an essential body part to consider when it comes to developing wheelchair controllers and other communications device. A group of students at Georgia Tech has successfully worked on a new system that relies on the tongue and several embedded magnets that enable quadriplegics to control multiple devices simply by flicking their tongues. Since the tongue is more agile than your average Olympian (I'm stretching the truth here, but do bear with me as I try to illustrate this point), it makes for a suitable candidate to suit this new control system.

It will make everyone great at kissing and oral sex too.

The Pirate Bay Wants to Encrypt the Entire Internet « NewTeeVee
Topic: Technology 3:58 am EDT, Jul 10, 2008

The team behind the popular torrent site The Pirate Bay has started to work on a new encryption technology that could potentially protect all Internet traffic from prying eyes. The project, which is still in its initial stages, goes by the name “Transparent end-to-end encryption for the Internets,” or IPETEE for short. It tackles encryption not on the application level, but on the network level, the aim being that all data exchanged on your PC would be encrypted, regardless of its nature — be it a web browser streaming video files or an instant messaging client. As Pirate Bay co-founder Fredrik Neij (a.k.a. Tiamo) told me, “Even applications that don’t supporting encryption will be encrypted where possible.”

I am quite disappointed at how Windows Usability has been going backwards and the program management groups don't drive usability issues.

Let me give you my experience from yesterday.
