  24. 24. “This tutorial will show you how to use your Raspberry Pi as a WiFi access point that blocks ads by default for any devices using it. This is really neat in that it would work for your Android or iOS device, your Xbox 360, TiVo, laptop, and more without needing to customize any of those devices other than to use your Raspberry Pi as the access point for WiFi. Using an ad-blocker can be useful for conserving bandwidth, helping out low-power devices, or for keeping your sanity while browsing the web!” Ad Blocking access point

  28. 28. “Unlike traditional wifi, Super Wi-Fi (though currently capable of less data throughput) has advantages both in a range measured in miles and in its ability to pass through walls, tree and other obstructions. And yet like wifi, Super WiFi or TV White Space (TVWS) or simply WhiteSpace, is also unlicensed radio spectrum, open and available to anyone with certified equipment to use with no fees or permissions attached.” CA: Humboldt County Library CO: Delta County, CO IL: Skokie Public Library KS: Lawrence Public Library KS: Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library KS: Kansas City, Kansas Public Library KS: Manhattan Public Library MS: Pascagoula Public Library NH: New Hampshire White Space Consortium Gigabit Libraries Network
  29. 29. “It's been a long time coming, but word hit the street (in German) that Gembird is going to launch their EnerGenie ePP2 e-reader at the IFA conference next week. Actually, e-reader is not the right term. Rather they call it an "e-paper printer", based on its capability to function as a printer. It works by connecting the reader, uh, printer, to a computer via USB, where it's then being recognized as a printer. When you print a document, it will be automatically stored onto the device.” EnerGenie ePP2 e-paper “printer”

  39. 39. Project Loon Project Loon balloons float in the stratosphere, twice as high as airplanes and the weather. They are carried around the Earth by winds and they can be steered by rising or descending to an altitude with winds moving in the desired direction. People connect to the balloon network using a special Internet antenna attached to their building. The signal bounces from balloon to balloon, then to the global Internet back on Earth.
  40. 40. "The technology developed by HHI makes it possible to use standard off-the-shelf LED room lights for data transmission. Data rates of up to 800 Mbit/s were reached by this optical WLAN under laboratory conditions, while a complete real-time system exhibited at trade fairs reached data throughput of 500 Mbit/s. The newly developed patent protected components have now achieved a transmission rate in laboratory experiments of over 1 Gbit/s per single light frequency. As off-the-shelf LEDs mainly use three light frequencies or light colors, speeds of up to 3 Gbit/s are feasible." 3GBPS "LiFi" via Light Bulbs
  41. 41. • WiTricity Corp. is...developing wireless electricity technology that will operate safely and efficiently over distances ranging from centimeters to several meters— and will deliver power ranging from milliwatts to kilowatts. • Direct Wireless Power — when all the power a device needs is provided wirelessly, and no batteries are required. This mode is for a device that is always used within range of its WiTricity power source. • Automatic Wireless Charging—when a device with rechargeable batteries charges itself while still in use or at rest, without requiring a power cord or battery replacement. This mode is for a mobile device that may be used both in and out of range of its WiTricity power Wireless Electricity over a distance
  42. 42. Transfer data through your body An “electrical device” that you can either wear on your body [that] uses the wearer’s body part, like your arm or finger, as a “transmission channel” to transfer data through direct physical contact with another device like a computer, smartphone, or even a game console and controller.
