  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.

Editor's Notes

  • “ I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies: 1. Anything that is in the world when you're born is normal and how the world works. 2. Anything that's invented between when you're fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. 3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.” ― Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt Image:

  • Memoto Lifelogging Camera - $279 The camera has no buttons. (That's right, no buttons.) As long as you wear the camera, it is constantly taking pictures. It takes two geotagged photos a minute with recorded orientation so that the app can show them upright no matter how you are wearing the camera. And it’s weather protected, so you don’t have to worry about it in inclement weather. The camera and the app work together to give you pictures of every single moment of your life, complete with information on when you took it and where you were. This means that you can revisit any moment of your past.
  • Google just bought the company for $1 Billion Dolars!
  • According to International Data Corporation (IDC), the amount of data created in 2012 reached a whopping 2.8 zettabytes -- that's 2.8 trillion gigabytes -- and that number is predicted to double by 2015. Most of it is made by individuals as they go through their daily interactions, and consequently, as tracking and storing of that data improves, analysts are able to learn even more about those people. All of this is leading to a day when, according to computer scientist Arvind Narayanan, it will be "algorithmically impossible" to be truly anonymous.
  • When Kaiba Gionfriddo was born, his parents never expected to have to look on, helpless, as his windpipe collapsed daily and stopped him from breathing. They were desperate—so when a team of researchers suggested that a 3D printer could help, they leapt at the chance. So a team from the University of Michigan set about using high-resolution imaging to study Kaiba's trachea and bronchus, and then got busy with some computer aided design. Using data from CT scans they were able to create accurate 3D models of his delicate little airways—weakened by a condition called tracheobronchomalacia—and develop a splint that could be used to help support them. The research is published in the New England Journal of Medicine .
  • The Makerbot Digitizer, which costs $1,400 (£900), will be shipped to the first buyers in October. Demand for the machine appeared to overload the company's store when it went on sale on Thursday evening. The Digitizer is the latest product looking to bring 3D printing to mainstream technology users - but experts are sceptical. The machine is designed to allow the replication of objects without any need for the user to learn any 3D modelling software or have any other special expertise. It works by pointing several lasers at the object and detecting contours in the surface. It also allows users to upload their 3D designs directly to Thingiverse, a website where 3D designs can be shared.
  • The Structure Scanner, a diminutive 3D scanner that hooks right into your iPad, allowing you to capture 3D information about the world around you. The device—which launches today on  Kickstarter —is the brainchild of Bay Area startup Occipital,  which has traditionally dealt with computer vision. Together, they created a tiny anodized aluminum device that pops onto your iPad in a snap, making it possible to use the camera to capture 3D information in real time. $349 on Kickstarter

  • A group led by Jang-Ung Park recently embedded an inorganic light-emitting diode directly into an off-the-shelf contact lens. They were able to do so by developing a transparent, highly conductive, and flexible mix of graphene and silver nanowires. And after testing these lenses on rabbits — animals with eyes similar to our own — they found no negative effects or irritation. The display was only one pixel across, but it served as a good proof-of-concept. The same sort of technology, once refined and developed further, could result in displays similar to what's being achieved with Glass. This new type of hybrid transparent and stretchable electrode could eventually lead to flexible displays, solar cells, and entirely new kinds of electronic devices.
  • 5/30/2013 Google-owned Motorola has some big plans for replacing your online and device passwords that include taking a pill every morning and wearing a tattoo on your arm. The two experimental prototypes were showcased during the D11 technology conference by Motorola’s head of advanced technology and projects group, Regina Dugan. Both concepts are meant as alternatives to using passwords, passcodes, picture passwords, and two-factor authentication as a means to access your smartphone, tablet, car, and even your front door. The first project Dugan displayed was a simple electronic tattoo manufactured by Cambridge, Massachusetts-based company MC10. The small electronic tattoo uses material developed by a University of Illinois research team led by Dr. John A. Rogers. The material can stretch up to 200 percent larger than its original size and features an antenna and a handful of sensors to authenticate with your devices. “It may be true that ten to twenty year-olds don’t want to wear a watch on their wrist,” Dugan said, taking an obvious dig at the recent rumors surrounding an Apple smart watch . “But you can be sure that they’ll be far more interested in wearing an electronic tattoo, if only to piss off their parents.”
  • Researchers at the University of Washington have successfully created a prototype of a system that uses Wi-Fi — and only Wi-Fi — to detect gestures. Called "WiSee," the system cleverly measures the Doppler shifts created by human movement on regular Wi-Fi signals. That means that the system doesn't require line of sight for gesture detection and, the researchers claim, it could work with off-the-shelf Wi-Fi systems. If using Wi-Fi to detect gestures isn't wild enough, the researches claim that "The average accuracy is 94% with a standard deviation of 4.6% when classifying between our nine gestures."
  • June 15, 2013 The idea is that your body part acts as a conduit for the data to travel through, rather than beaming the information wirelessly, which makes it prone to hacking.
