  • 1. Octopus Newspaper Jwalant Dholakia Carrie Wall OCE 6934 Mid Term 26 October 2007
  • 2. Objective Develop an electronic wireless newspaper using principles of optical/color control found in cephalopods (squid, octopus, cuttlefish)
  • 3. Microvilli arranged at right angles Problem to distinguish between different planes the light travels on Identification Single lens focuses light onto photoreceptor cells Excellent Vision Sees polarized and unpolarized light on si Vi CEPHALOPOD COLOR CONTROL Ca m Polarized Light Pattern ou fla ge Adapts skin patterns Defense Mechanism to background Chromatophores change brightness and pattern according to background. Colors might come from cells (iridophores & leucaphores) that reflect light from the environment http://www.bio.davidson.edu/people/midorcas/animalphysiolo http://www.mbl.edu/mrc/hanlon/index.html gy/websites/2003/Muller/thecephalopodeye2.htm

  • 11. Business Strategy  Do Strategy out to Google or Yahoo?  you sell  Yahoo Develop the O-paper Gen. 1 as the core IP and protect Internet company – search, email, finance, travel etc.   Commercialize by licensing to  Media companies - Newspapers  Online advertisements  Local companies – Valpak, The Flyer etc  Google  Selling the Ad-space to Google  Dominant online advertising company  Use licensing revenue for R&D to develop Gen. 2 and 3  Ahead of rivals in search, context-advertising etc.  Media Companies - Time Warner Inc., News Corp. etc  Strong media companies – TV, newspapers, web  Global footprint  So, what is the strategy?
  • 12. System Components  GPS Module  SIRF* Powered  20 Channel GPS Receiver  Quad band GPRS  Embedded and SMTP Client  Embedded TCP/IP Stack  WIFI Module  Single-Chip 802.11g Transceiver  Reduces transmit power by 30%
