Dynamic Inductive Wireless Charging of Electric Vehicles

Signal: Dynamic wireless charging holds promise to partially or completely eliminate the overnight charging through a compact network of dynamic chargers installed on the roads that would keep the vehicle batteries charged at all times.

Why does it matter?

In the mentioned paper, we see a huge potential for electronic devices, This technology could create new industries, because if we can supply power wirelessly, we can design products beyond the current approach. There will be new markets and new product categories.

Additional News Coverage:

DHL, in cooperation with the American company Astrobotic, will offer shipments to the moon. From next year on, it will be possible to send small souvenirs up there to commemorate, for example, school-leaving, holidays, marriage, the birth of a child or a loved one. Astrobotic offers its customers the opportunity to send a ring, a baby’s handprint, a hair strand, sand from their favourite beach, a love letter or company logo.

Anyone can send a so-called MoonBox into space. The smallest package has a diameter of 30 cm and the shipping fee starts from $460. Sending the largest MoonBox to the moon will cost $25,800.

 

 

 

Launch Your Own Personal Satellite for $8,000 USD

The news is a bit old, but it’s relevant as a signal of future yet. Furthermore, the company is in the business and released newer model.

The rocket company Interorbital Services (IOS) is offering their “TubeSat Personal Satellite Kit” that can carry 0.75-kg into orbit. The price includes a launch into low Earth orbit on an IOS NEPTUNE 30 launch vehicle to 310 kilometers (192 miles) above the Earth. TubeSats are designed to be orbit-friendly, and not contribute to orbital debris by being in a self-decaying orbit. Launches are expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Fast Data Analytics

According to IBM, “Fast data (actionable data) is real-time data that typically comes in from streaming — such as through Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and event-driven applications.”

Some expert argue that   the argument is that big isn’t necessarily better when it comes to data, and that businesses don’t use a fraction of the data they have access too. Instead, the idea suggests companies should focus on asking the right questions and making use of the data they have — big or otherwise.

This approach requires:

  • powerful systems for real time analysis
  • Algorithms that detect the differences between noises and emerging  signals
  • New Visualization Techniques

If this trend continue to grow:

  • Fast Data Services
  • Fast Data Neural networks

Question to ask:

Which insignificant events in the past had dramatic impacts on your organization? How fast data could help you on these cases?

No Book!

 

Information technology allows us to have access to millions of books, will enable us to read books written in different countries, but can we read all the books? The answer is obvious. For an Iranian person, Shahname is the most popular mythical book. We may refer to Shahname many times. But should an expat in Iran read the whole Shahnameh? I don’t think so.
There are other cases to amplify the benefits of summary in knowledge sharing. I think the blue ocean strategy book provides an essential point of view for every business owner; the book is not too long. The authors present their point of view in 240 pages. But I know many people who use the idea of the blue ocean strategy just by reading the Wikipedia page.

In other words, with the boom of information, we can’t consume whole the information, we may need details of books, but we can’t read all books. Businesses like getAbstract and Blinkist use this gap between demand and supply in information markets.
I suggest that this would be a more significant trend in the future. And there would be a marketplace that credible person, sell single page books. There would be two version of many book:
Single Page and expanded edition

Walking Nano Robots Inside Blood

This is not fiction nor a concept design; Cornel University Researchers made a tremendous achievement.

New research, published August 26 in Nature, shows that it is possible to build legs into robots mere microns in length. When powered by lasers, these tiny machines can move, and some day, they may save lives in operating rooms or even, possibly, on the battlefield.

Smart Dust

In the 1990s, a researcher named Kris Pister dreamed up a wild future in which people would sprinkle the Earth with countless tiny sensors, no larger than grains of rice.

it seems its become more relevant these days.

Combination of IoT technology and  Nano Computer manufacturing would make this dream a reality.

Gucci Virtual Sneaker

As one of the world’s most popular brands, Gucci has capitalized on the multi-billion dollar sneaker market by dropping new logo-heavy silhouettes and remixing winning styles to keep things fresh. The Italian company’s latest kicks are its most egalitarian to date, weighing in at a mere $11.99 USD, but you’ll never be able to wear themHaving already dipped into the digital footwear realm, the luxury fashion house Gucci is now launching a series of augmented reality (AR) sneakers. This is part of a major push from parent Kering to keep at the forefront of virtual reality trends.To accomplish this, Gucci has once again collaborated with Belarus-based fashion-tech company Wanna, known for manipulating AR to create three-dimensional models that can be used for digital sneakers and watches fittings. Wanna is no stranger to the fashion and tech world, having worked with brands such as Reebok, Puma and Snapchat to test out the consumer response to virtually trying on clothing. Previously, Gucci has worked with Wanna to digitalize its AR sneaker “try-ons” in the Gucci app(hyperBeast)

Why it matters?

It implies that we see strong growth in Virtual Economy segment. It also shows the importance of NFTs in future of ownership. If users pay for virtual goods,  they should posses the virtual items beyond the seller platform.

 

 

What is vSport?

Virtual Sport is a trend which can boost Virtual Economy.

A vSport is a physical sport not possible in the real world – a unique full-body experience that can only be delivered through virtual reality, with a well-defined rule-set and physicality as found in real-world sports. In Sparc, your VR hardware is your sporting equipment. We’ve designed Sparc so that players can express and improve their skill through their physical actions so when you play, it’s really you – not a fictional character in a fictional world(1)
