"I don't know, you have a pocket Wizard, look it up" said my coworker Joe when I asked him a media reference question. What do we do with those powerful smartphone super computers in our pockets anyway?
What does it mean to fully understand reality? With out finite little brain computers we can only know so much, each person unable to solve all the problems. No one has all the answers. Can information technology set mankind free into a brighter future?
Wearable tech entered my life back in 2013, starting with a Fitbit One, a clip on unit that tracks movement. The Fitbit Charge HR was next, followed up by a Fitbit Surge (Thanks Jaeson!). Now 4 years into "quantifying bodily movement, sleep & heart rate" I am starting to consider a platform shift away from Fitbit / Android to an all Apple digital eco-system unification for future emergent computing platforms in our home. Meg is already 2/3 rd's Apple with an iMac, iPhone SE combo & Fitbit Charge HR.
The awesome electrical connector that allows your TV, bluray player, Xbox One, PS4, Chrome Stick, Receiver, and Amplifier to talk to each other, sharing that data information that makes pixels on the screen glow with content that brain turns into experiences, sounds to convey music & speech & sound effects that enhance the depth of the experiences.
Neck problems, increased RF exposure, screen brightness light exposure induced sleeping problems, data addiction, information dependance, computer abuse, internet codependence, increased wireless service costs, increased annual spending on mobile electronics & accessories, could the smartphone revolution be giving rise to the human machine hybridization that paves that way to technological singularity!
Fitbit Surge is pure awesome, a bit clunky, produces a skin rash if you wear it too snug, has long battery life, very reliable bluetooth connectivity, awesome heart rate & sleep tracking + ongoing App improvements to the phone app dashboard on iPhone & Android phones.
Solid Oxide Fuel Cells can convert common hydrocarbon gasses like propane, LPG & natural gas into electricity for fuel cell vehicles that can refill in under 5 minutes using existing fuel infrastructure, essential for car sharing fleets where each vehicle has high daily utilization!
Electric Cars, Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops, Cordless Phones, iPods, Android, iPhone & more, many consumer electronics are powered by Lithium Ion batteries. Power tools are often powered by NiMH or NiCD batteries. The starting of most engines powered by PBA batteries. Here I explain how to get the most life out of each kind of rechargeable battery~
Radar, Night Vision, Pedestrian Detection a HUD highlighting, Automatic Headlight Brightness & Beam Profile Modulation, Parental Controls for Teen Driver Safety Enhancement, Active Driver Competence & Functionality Testing & in vehicle wifi hotspot via the vehicles LTE advanced connection or 5G wireless service.
The road to gigabit mobile internet hindered by phone modems (450mb/s iPhone 7, Galaxy S8) as network throughput speeds & capacity for VoLTE & Mobile Internet services. Many people fail to make use of existing LTE speeds that are widely available.
Steve Jobs & the iPhone 5 sparkled in my vision. Captured by the creative magic of Apple's marketing campaign behind aluminum unibody designs, several generations of iPods had earned my affinity for Apple's thoughtfully designed products years earlier!
