Microsok Augmented Reality Concept Fuses Virtual World with Reality • Microsok researchers have created a new augmented reality concept by improving how virtual simulaNons react in the physical world. • The Kinect sensor is used in a process called Kinect Fusion, which allows projecNons of objects to react to diﬀerent surfaces. Kinect Fusion is possible with the Beamatron — a device consisNng of the Kinect sensor and a projector. It’s aCached to a spinning head in the ceiling and allows it to take detailed maps of physical spaces. • This technology projects objects anywhere in a room and allows realisNc movement. It bumps into objects such as table, chairs and walls. Plus, the simulaNon is never distorted when crossing over bumpy surfaces. • It’s now possible for virtual objects to interact within physical spaces like never before. The projector can sense what is going on in the room and shows changes in seconds. • In a video, Andy Wilson, Microsok principal researcher drives a 3D image of a toy car around a room with a remote control. It bumps into walls and drives over hills. • hCp://mashable.com/2012/03/14/microsok-‐kinect-‐beamatron

FIRST Lego League Robots open source • There are many things that are open source. Beer too.
LEGO robots in the laboratory • Researchers at Cambridge build LEGO robots that automate Nme-‐consuming laboratory processes at a fracNon of the cost of a "real" robot. • Weve talked here before about the extremely important (and oken-‐overlooked) DIY aspect of science. ScienNsts are makers. They have to be. The tools they need oken arent available any other way. Other Nmes, the tools are available, but theyre far more expensive than what you could construct out of your own ingenuity.
Virtual Anatomy Tool • Boise State U Replaces Cadaver Lab With Virtual Anatomy Tool – Students at Boise State University (BSU) are using virtual cadavers to study human anatomy. According to a statement released Monday to the press, the university recently closed its human cadaver lab to adoptAnatomyTV, a Web-‐based soluNon from Primal Pictures. • Anatomy.Tv • Demos available!

More thoughts • The metaclassroom – should students bring their own devices? • Society of interrupNon, society of distracNon • Blended learning: the future? • MAKE movement: the future? • Having 60 people in class is a privilege for the professor • Having a professor that explains things in a diﬀerent way and integrates knowledge is a privilege for parNcipants • The youtube generaNon?
G. Iﬀrah, Histoire des Xiﬀres • Science is knowlege that becomes true by means of criNcism (S. Bachelard) • InvenNon in theoreNcal science has the character of discovery, but it is a disconvery in the worlk of mind (L. de Broglie) • All science is just a depuraNon of daily thinking (A. Einstein) • (note: look for those people’s quotes!) Ciència i Futur de la Humanitat, 28/1/2008

And now, three quotes... • EducaBon is not a preparaBon for life, It is life itself • Your aTtude is a choice • EducaBon: there is a treasure inside Thus: CommunicaNng Science is an aƒtude. Everyone can communicate well if provided with relevant skills.
