Android Wear

Rather than build the physical smartwatch itself, the folks at Google have decided to build software to help power the hardware. The search giant calls this new technology Android Wear. While it is applicable to more than just watches, the wrist watch will be the first target for the new software. Android Wear allows you to interact with your device in a meaningful way – traffic reports on the way to work, taxi cabs within the local area, weather when you wake up in the morning, and fitness tracking among other things. Of course normal smartphone functions like music player, text messages, email, and the likes will also be controlled through Android Wear devices, all by using either your voice or the touchscreen interface. Google has already revealed that they have teamed up with some of the biggest smartphone makers in the game on the first round of wearables – brands like HTC, Samsung, Motorola, LG and Asus.

Pinokio – Real Life Pixar Lamp

The Real-Life Pixar Lamp called Pinokio has come to reality with awesome artificial intelligence technology. The lamp you saw in the Pixar animated movies, has been designed in the real to stand on desk and amuse you with its incredibly funny and dynamic gestures. Book lovers like it most because it makes possible for machines to interact with humans in a quite decent way while staying on study table. I wish it could jump like the virtual Pixar Lamp. The lamp is designed antique by Victoria University students Shanshan Zhou, Adam Ben-Dror, and Joss Doggett using Processing, Arduino, and OpenCV. It has a tiny camera for facial recognition and eight sensors to detect movements. Not just that, it listens to the sounds in environment and understands what is going on around. Is someone playing hide and seek with him? Well he understands those gestures too. The mass production of this lamp will start after developers get the safety approval license.
