Law Student Beats Police Verbally

Law Student

This is fairly impressive even if a little ridiculous. This over zealous guy is approached by police because of bystanders calling in a report of a man with a gun and he retorts with a knowledgeable and aggressive attitude but still being polite.

He wasn’t necessarily rude, he simply knows his stuff and probably doesn’t like cops too much!

Either way he definitely gets the upper hand over the police.

Controlling Electronic Devices With Your Arms (Yes… Your Arm!)

Google Glass is a very interesting project and although it has a lot of uses it would certainly be weird to change your song on your iPod in public by saying, “Next Song”. Well maybe it’s just me because realistically there are thousands of people looking odd at first using a Bluetooth headset, Siri or some other voice detection system. Now this is something new and surprisingly has a lot of practical functions. It’s called MYO by Thalmic Labs and it’s a wearable armband that allows you to send signals using the electrical pulses sent by your muscles during movement. A new company located in North Lakes – North Lakes Pc Repairs will be the first to be shipping it in late 2013 for $149 with an open API for developers to build or connect it to their own programs and applications.

The process is called electromyography and it measures the activity from your forearm contracting and producing small amounts of electrical activity. The device then amplifies that activity by thousands of times and processes the signals. The great thing is that it will get more and more accurate over time as the device learns your specific movements more precisely and thus it’s algorithms  and accuracy improves. This technology is similarly found in high tech arm and hand prosthetics.

When a recognized command is completed you can have a small vibration occur to confirm an operation such as pointing/pinching a finger or waving/swiping your hand. The Myo’s sensors can determine when a certain gesture is being made and translate it into a digital command for your computer, phone or remote controlled vehicle.

Given it might not be the new hot item that everyone NEEDS you have since it isn’t made by Apple or isn’t prefixed with an i such as iMyo, it’s still a neat item that could have many uses in the home, business, teaching, health and recreation environments. Things are definitely changing and consumers are starting to witness emerging technologies that they never would have thought of embracing years prior. “Right now we’re just on the cusp of a major shift in computing, and whether it’s a Google product or something else, at some point in the next couple years wearable computing devices are going to change how everyone will communicate and interact with technology,” says Thalmic Labs co-founder Stephen Lake. “Ultimately the line between us and our devices will start becoming a lot more blurred.”

In a video showcasing some of the Myo’s uses you can view it controlling video and audio playback, switching between windows on a computer, shooting a gun in a game, directing remote controlled devices and even sending a video to share on social networks WHILE you’re skiing! The device isn’t just limited to a few uses though. “If you think about your daily life, you use your hands to interact with and manipulate just about everything you do, from pressing numbers on your phone to picking up your coffee,” says Lake. “Now think if we can take all those motions and actions and plug them into just about any computer or digital system, the possibilities are endless.”

In truth we’ve always wanted to have some kind of advanced computer on our wrists to make us feel like super heroes or futuristic badasses  How amazing would it be to play a Star Wars game and force choke someone with your own hands!? I wouldn’t be surprised if in 5 or 10 years everyone has some sort of hybrid device strapped to their body (besides the current cell phone of course!). I’m thinking more of a wrist watch that has holographic type capabilities and it will be our phone, computer, projector and maybe even stereo (find more here). As cool as it would be I hope it doesn’t turn into some thing that every “citizen” is required to have because it identifies and GPS tracks you. Sorry about that last part… Let’s keep it positive! :P

Google Glass Now Available Through Contest

The revolutionary and futuristic set of glasses by Google are becoming available to a select few who submit an application of up to 50 words explaining what they would do with the Google Glass technology.

Google Glass

Unlike most contests however you still will have to pay for the product. Essentially you are just getting the chance to be a paying beta tester and get a product that no one else can get yet! The pair of internet connected glasses will cost $1500 and to be eligible you must reside in the U.S.

Google Glass is supposed to mirror a smartphone in functionality with voice commands instead of a touch display. Before this becomes widespread I’m sure you will get several funny looks like you are a cyborg trying to take over the world. That’s okay though you can film their reactions!

The technology is in fact very intense and could have many uses. Freeing your hands while still being able to interact with the internet or smartphone functions is very cool. It would be awesome to be travelling somewhere that speaks another language and when one of the native talks you can visually see what they are saying translated to English  There are an endless amount of uses this could spawn the only thing for now is the odd look of a pair of glasses with a weird Bluetooth looking dongle on the front with a tiny screen.

If you’d like to pick one of these up go on Twitter or Google+ and use the hashtag #ifihadglass to post a status convincing Google with your bold and creative plans for the eyewear.

Check out the video Google posted regarding Glass:

Is Google Building Retail Stores? Apple and Microsoft Store Rivalry

Will it be made of glass? Maybe instead it will be made of all concrete or mirrors!

Google Store

An “extremely reliable” source claims that Google is in the midst of creating retail stores in the United States says 9to5 Google. Apple may have started it, but now giant companies like Microsoft and quite possibly Google are following suit making their own branded stores. The goal is to have a few stores open in major cities in time for the 2013 holidays.

At first when you think of Google, the only major thing that comes to mind is a search engine. Next might be an email platform and afterwards maybe documents/calendar. My personal favourite that I truly wish would come to my area would be Google Fiber. Oh sweet fruit of the heavens that would be sweet.

So what would a Google store actually carry for products? They definitely do have their hands in some physical products such as the Nexus smartphone, Chromebook laptops, Google Glass and Google TV but is there really enough to fill a traditional store? Could this be more of a lounge to explore new Google technologies?

The rumour is that it will be both. A place to try new products and technologies before you buy.

It’s hard for me to imagine right now because I picture a very expensive building but only a handful of different products to sell. I’m sure there will be massive things coming from them in the future and having their own brick-and-mortar chain will absolutely make it easier to get products into the public’s hands. If it will be an odd few years of vacant shelf space is a question to be pondered but as it stands I’m sure many would welcome the stores and enjoy the experience.

An important question is if each store will have a slide or something unique that brings an out of the ordinary touch to retail. It is Google, and with that mentality there’s bound to be something fun and quirky in their environment!

Shocking Illusions That Look Real (Anamorphic)

anamorphic ninja turtles

When I started this video I wasn’t exactly sure what I was looking for or if anything was happening. I just kept looking for something that was odd or out of place. Right off the bat it did a close up on a rubik’s cube and I still was confused thinking, “That’s great you have a decent camera that’s showing the stickers on the cube are scuffed up on some of the edges”…

Then my mind was blown.

Amazing and so impressive, you need to see this to understand what I’m talking about!

Meteorite Hits Russia – Shatters Windows And Causes Bright Flash

There is an asteroid that’s going to be passing by Earth today and it just so happens a random meteor plummeted to Russia.

meteor

Apparently windows got blown out from this! Good thing there aren’t any recorded fatalities but still more than 500 are injured. Local residents and astronomers were taken by surprise because they didn’t expect this piece of rock to hit.

For the last 10 years there has been many programs dedicated to finding the objects whose trajectory lines up with our planet, but sometimes some whiz right by surprising everyone. There are lots of space agencies working to track meteors, comets and asteroids classified as Near-Earth Objects. NASA’s NEO program hopes to spot at least 90% of the estimated 1000 asteroids and comets larger than 1 kilometre on track to approach Earth.

The problem is that even if that upper 90% is spotted there are 10% that will fly by undetected. Here’s to hoping they don’t miss another one that breaches our atmosphere.

The asteroid that is expected to streak by Earth is known as Asteroid 2012 DA14 and has been followed for months now.

It is reported to be a complete coincidence that this asteroid is to pass by today and a rogue meteor flew by on the same day. “This is rare. There hasn’t been one like this in a long time,” says Randy Attwood, the senior editor of SpaceRef.ca.

Luckily even though meteor material rains down on our planet daily most of it is dust and happens in uninhabited areas.

“I suspect this one was the size of an SUV,” Attwood said. “It’s not huge, but as it hit the atmosphere going tens of kilometres a second, it created an enormous shock wave.” The meteor would have been travelling much faster than the speed of sound, Attwood says, so it created a sonic boom that caused windows to shatter.

It just happens to be that the last major meteor to hit a populated area was also in Russia in 1908. This meteor was called the “Tunguska event” and leveled trees across a 100 kilometre range without harming anyone. It was about 30-40 metres wideand considered to be the largest impact event in recorded history on Earth.

Astronomers will be analyzing  the composition of today’s meteor to learn more about it’s origins among other scientific research.
