Google's New Project Soli Is Mind Blowing - See It In Action

http://airows.com/gear/googles-new-proj ... -in-action

Google is living in the future right now. They're in the middle of developing a new interaction sensor using radar technology that can track movement with crazy accuracy. It's only the size of a small computer chip and can be inserted into everyday objects and things we use daily. See the two quick GIFs to get an idea and watch the video for a full-blown introduction to the amazingness. It's all very impressive.

I recently had the pleasure of hearing Golden Krishna talk about his new book ‘The Best Interface is No Interface’ at a Designers + Geeks event in San Francisco. Golden is well known for his dry and witty stabs at an industry that believes ‘if you like it, you better put a screen on it’ (/Beyonce). It was Golden’s thoughtfulness on more intelligent interaction with our devices that really got me thinking: what would happen if we didn’t always think screen first? More importantly, what can we do in the tech industry to learn how to deal with this paradigm shift of interaction. Can we avoid panic when new devices arrive?

Why We Need Free Digital Hardware Designs

http://www.wired.com/2015/03/need-free- ... e-designs/

To what extent do the ideas of free software extend to hardware? Is it a moral obligation to make our hardware designs free, just as it is to make our software free? Does maintaining our freedom require rejecting hardware made from nonfree designs?

http://ergonomi.co.uk/touchpad/

Will we be using the touchpad in the future? This author believes this is likely even with the advent of touchscreens and the latest gesture control technologies. Touchpads function similarly to touchscreens, allowing input in two dimensions, ...

Can Wearables Help You Reach Immortality?

Can Wearables Help You Reach Immortality?

http://www.wired.com/2015/02/can-wearab ... mortality/

Since the beginning of mankind, we have been fascinated by immortality. Many have tried, from the pharaohs of ancient Egypt to devout followers of man-made religions. Yet, eternal life remains elusive.

In the Hollywood sensationalized movie The Imitation Game, based on the life of Alan Turing, considered the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence, the movie explores the notion of living forever through an intelligent system. And as mortality nears, many baby boomers are looking to science.

The Big Future: What does the future of interaction look like?

http://www.theverge.com/2014/12/29/7450 ... WUr67aHQTt

"The rise of smartphones has left us tapping away at touchscreens. In this week's Big Future, we look at what comes after the glass. Will we all be speaking to our devices? Are augmented reality glasses and contacts going to feed us information all day? Or does touch interaction work so well that we'll never really replace it?"

MIT Invents A Magic Lens That Combines All Your Screens Into

MIT Invents A Magic Lens That Combines All Your Screens Into A Single Experience

http://www.fastcodesign.com/3035809/mit ... mario-tech

When we need to send a command or a file from our smartphone to our laptop, we do it through menus. But imagine if we didn't have to send something to another device by dragging it to a file, or selecting it from a menu. What if we could use our iPhones as a magic lens instead, so that our smartphones could seamlessly interact with what's happening on the screens of our laptops and tablets?

Tiny Startup Completely Reinvents How We Use Touchscreens

Tiny Startup Completely Reinvents How We Use Touchscreens

http://www.wired.com/2014/06/qeexo/

If you want a reminder of how far technology has come in the last decade, check out the YouTube clip of Steve Jobs unveiling the first iPhone to a room full of people back in January 2007. In it, Jobs teaches his audience, step by step, how to swipe and scroll through photos. He shows them how to rotate the device so that they can see an image in landscape. And he demonstrates what he calls “the pinch,” pressing his fingers together and moving them farther apart to zoom in on an image. After the pinch, the crowd lets out a collective “Whoa.”
