Digital scents

http://www.cosmosmagazine.com/features/ ... 9607671811


One day soon you may be able to capture a fragrance snapshot of your environment and send it attached to a text message or email.

You are driving to work in the morning and a gentle scent of citrus fruits is keeping you alert. There’s a fly in the car, but before it starts to annoy you the tiny sensor on your cuff button detects it and releases a targetted mist of insecticide.

Scrolling with your eyes. Adjusting the volume of music with a flick of the wrist. Even flying a drone with just a hand movement. It won't be long before the computer mouse is a thing of the past.

Just as the iPhone revolutionized touch interface, upcoming devices will have completely different forms of human-machine interaction, according to industry experts at CES.

Flexible Displays Will Soon Change The World

Flexible Displays Will Soon Change The World

http://www.fastcodesign.com/1672451/fro ... -the-world

"I’m talking to Frog’s Chief Creative Officer, Mark Rolston, about the iWatch. He’s riffing on the future of wearable technology and user interface, and there’s plenty of heady philosophy flying on the untapped potential of calendars, and the clash of unitary app models with HUDs. His opinions are mostly conditional, reasonably hedged and all-around sensible. He’s exploring possibilities rather than prognosticating the future. And then he says something that shocks me with its straightforwardness:

Curved displays will drive the next five years of landmark inventions."

Samsung demos a tablet controlled by your brain

http://medcitynews.com/2013/04/samsung- ... our-brain/

"One day, we may be able to check e-mail or call a friend without ever touching a screen or even speaking to a disembodied helper. Samsung is researching how to bring mind control to its mobile devices with the hope of developing ways for people with mobility impairments to connect to the world. The ultimate goal of the project, say researchers in the company’s Emerging Technology Lab, is to broaden the ways in which all people can interact with devices."

How will retina displays influence the future of web design?

http://blog.tbhcreative.com/2013/03/how ... uence.html

"Retina is the new buzzword around web designers and interactive marketing teams. This new technology has not only improved the way we see web content, but retina is starting to influence how developers build websites. As a strategic web company, it's TBH Creative's goal—and responsibility—to ensure a satisfying experience for users browsing the web, regardless of display."

Kanske tankeöverföring kan blir framtidens gränsnsitt?

"Researchers have electronically linked the brains of pairs of rats, enabling the animals to communicate directly via implanted microelectrode arrays to solve simple behavioral problems, according to a study published today (February 28) in Scientific Reports."

CES 2013: Intel's drive for 'perceptual computing'

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-20 ... _202926736

"He has been called one of the world's most influential technology thinkers and he is leading Intel's drive to change the way we interact with computers.

Mooly Eden, president of Intel Israel, calls his latest venture perceptual computing - and it involves controlling computers with gestures - with your voice, even with your eyes.

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, he explained to Rory Cellan-Jones how our relationship with computers is set to change."

Bridging the gap between humans and computers

Bridging the gap between humans and computers

http://edition.cnn.com/2012/11/01/tech/ ... _181636216

"Computers are evolving. We have voice-controlled assistants on our phones, telepresence robots for when we can't make it to a meeting in person, and self-driving cars that are headed to a road near you.

These machines aren't just taking over human tasks. Computerized systems are also taking on more human characteristics. As technology gets more advanced, how will our relationships with it change?"

Wrist Device Makes Controlling Gadgets a Snap

Wrist Device Makes Controlling Gadgets a Snap

http://www.scientificamerican.com/artic ... _176545421

"Microsoft's Kinect technology lets gamers kick a virtual soccer ball or ride a digital skateboard using natural movements rather than a controller. Yet it can detect and interpret only full-body motion—it is relatively clueless about interpreting the movements of smaller body parts such as fingers. Now Microsoft researchers are developing a wrist-worn sensor to control video games—along with mobile phones, tablets, computers and TVs—with a flick of the wrist or snap of the fingers."
