If you are like me then you might have a tendency to bite your nails, pull your hairs or keep doing something which you want to get rid off. Problem in such cases is awareness.
Soon you might be able to tame these habits using a wearable device. HabitAware has created a device called Liv.
A smart bracelet that creates awareness of subconscious behaviors like hair pulling, nail biting, skin picking and thumb-sucking in older children.
Willingness to change is the first step. Awareness is the second. Liv helps with this second step.
NASA recently undertook a new endeavor to allow long observations on Science phenomenon using Balloon technology. Mind you it’s not your average Balloon.
It attempts to detect Gamma Rays emitted from Black Holes and Exploding Stars.
It was launched from New Zealand and will orbit Earth for around 100 days.
As the Artificial Intelligence platforms evolve the job market is set to face a major revamp.
AI platforms like Amelia (created by IPsoft), and Viv (from the creators of Siri) are set to replace millions of workers.
These Robots can do most of the Jobs being done currently. Many of these are currently being tested.
Another amazing feat by humanity. A Solar powered plane can open the endless possibilities.
The carbon-fiber aircraft weighs just about a midsize truck.
The plane’s wings, which stretch wider than those of a Boeing 747, are equipped with 17,000 solar cells that power propellers and charge batteries. The plane runs on stored energy at night.
If you are into Computers and haven’t heard of Linus Torvalds then you better do some lookup. To start with he gave us Linux and to add icing to the cake he created Git.
Recently I heard him talk in a TED interview and thought of sharing it. It’s a talk worth listening to. He is not a people’s person and likes to work in his quiet office, all by himself.
The part which sounded really interesting was his take on Visionaries and why he identified more with Edison than with Tesla.
I am not a visionary. I do not have a five-year plan, I don’t have a moon shot. I’m an engineer.
Listen him share his opinions.
Google finds a good enough reason to come up with interesting and useful innovations.
This time its a self driving bike. The bike can help reduce the accidents as well as let people work 🙂
Take note from Google, the best April Fools’ Day pranks from brands are ones that make fun of itself.
