The car reads the newspaper for the driver

gennaio 11, 2013 Technology No Commenti

The hi-tech introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas has included the driver safety.
Once again it’s been very careful to the topic, the carmaker Ford that has presented numerous news about the auto-connectivity infrastructure that interact specifically with smartphones.
Has attracted particular curiosity Kaliki, the application that allows you to listen, while driving a car, the reading of the favourite newspapers. The app works with the Ford Sync AppLink network and it will certainly appreciate by the 140 millions of Americans who spend about 50 minutes a day in the car. Kaliki can inform the driver about the latest news according to his favorite topics or read magazines. At the moment the application is only available for smartphones with Android operating system, in short time it may also be used on iPhone.

The basis for this innovation is the connection Bluethooth of the Ford Sync system, with the opportunity to browse the menu through voice commands. Saying the name of the newspaper or magazine that wants to “listen”, the driver can choose among titles and categories that are listed, the preferred option.

A few months ago it was the same Focus to offer additional solutions in the comfort and safety fields as the traffic sign recognition: a micro camera implanted in the car reads the digital signals and sends the information to a software that interprets the signs and alerts the driver with icons and alarms about prohibitions and speed limits. Same thing can be done for the control of road markings, for the maintenance of the lane and for the monitoring of the driver’s attention. Some cars made by the company can also be equipped with a system that stops the car in the event of a collision with some pedestrians or obstacles. To these are added the most common semi-automatic devices for parking.

Optimal solutions to improve the time spent in the car and to implement our activities with safely. The data that speak of road accidents are drastic and a high percentage of responsibility is attributed to the sleep and tiredness. Beyond innovation, isn’t to leave at home a valid antisleep driving alarm if you are under excessive fatigue or if you have to face long trips.

The phablet, object of desire 2013

gennaio 8, 2013 Technology No Commenti

Innovative ideas, newfangled technology and proposals more and more social to the electronics fair CES 2013 in Las Vegas. Smartphones and tablets are undoubtedly the masters of the exhibition that boasts every year millions and millions of fans from all over the world. Cult object of the exposure 2013 is undoubtedly the “phablet“, a term not yet included in our common language that holds together the “phone” and the “tablet” as the already popular Samsung Galaxy Note.
To this first model will approach in the next weeks many others at 5 inches: Butterfly by HTC, ZTC Grand S, Z and ZL by Sony. Huawei Ascend will instead Mate with 6.1-inch screen, slightly smaller than the Kindle Fire by Amazon. Huawei will present instead Ascend Mate with 6.1-inch screen, slightly smaller than the Kindle Fire by Amazon.

Phablet, phonelet, tweener or super smartphone very probably will impose itself as object of desire 2013, with the producers ready to fight to make prevail their models on those of rivals.
In reality the first model, the Streak by Intel, was designed in 2010, but the success of phablet on the market has been sanctioned by Samsung with its Galaxy Note in 2012. To promote the success of phablet will come into play a number of factors, starting with the growing interest for the video contents consumed on the move: the phablet allows an optimal view and the possibility to use mobile networks in addition to wi-fi.
It’s expected that during the next three years, the market share will quadruple and its value will be of $135 billion, for a total of about 230 million of devices with a screen greater than 5 inches.
To drive the adoption of phablet will once again be the area of the Asia-Pacific, Japan and Korea with an estimated headline around 50% of worldwide sales in the year 2017.

During the CES hasn’t gone unnoticed the Horizon Centre Table, the tablet for 4 with a 27-inch screen, the size of a coffee table. The maxi tablet of the Chinese company Lenovo is able to distinguish the different “touch” and will be available from summer 2013 at a price of about $ 1,699.
Users will try in every way to combine new technologies with the essential functionalities of today’s smartphones. We need of them almost for everything: learn, play games, chat, but also to control their own health, keep an eye on their children and monitor their partner. We are willing to give up all this?

The future of hi-tech with the 5 senses

gennaio 3, 2013 Biotechnology No Commenti

If we aren’t yet accustomed to the fingerprint locks and to the access control based on biometric recognition, hardly we’ll be able to accept the five fundamental changes that will be operated over the next 5 years in the field of technology.
5In5, the project of IBM with starring the five senses. PCs, smartphones and tablets in a few years will be equipped with the possibility to analyze reality through complex cognitive digital systems. In their turn, users will expand the capabilities of their physical senses interacting with these systems easy to use.

In about 100 years, the PC has raided in the company, in our homes and in our private. With the device can do almost anything: see air travel, talk with friends, spy on your partner, chat, cook, observe the stars and so on. To further enhance the capabilities of electronic devices comes the implementation of the 5 senses. The computers will be able to see, hear, smell and also have a digital palate and touch. These features will allow to emulate the activities that occur on the right side of the human brain.

But we see the senses in particular. Regarding the touch, that sense has entered fully into the touchscreen technology for smartphone and for PC supporting Windows 8. The new challenge involves the perception at 360°, perhaps to feel the texture of the fabrics or the softness of the wool.
As regards the view, we can easily refer to the facial recognition systems. In the future this technology can be used to perceive imperceptible things to the naked eye as a disease for example.
The hearing will be based on existing speech recognition systems, developing beyond the threshold of human and picking up inaudible sounds will be able predict disasters like the collapse of a bridge or a building.
Entirely new will be the development of the digital palate that will allow the elaboration of customized recipes that will link nutritional needs with the personal taste.
Even the smell can be perceived by hi-tech devices, because the slight volatile molecules in fragrances can be picked up by powerful systems. This sense will haven’t only superficial developments, but may perceive before men the characteristic odor of the indicators of infection or other diseases, or reports harmful hygienic conditions.
As you can imagine, therefore, the development of the 5 senses will not be a digital accessory for fanatics of biotechnology, but, if implemented, could have important implications in daily life.

Pay for the bus with the smartphone? In London you can

dicembre 27, 2012 Technology No Commenti

London continues to make great strides in the field of technology. At the heart of British investments this time there are the typical red double-decker buses. This is the project of contactless payment that will allow to pay for the bus through credit cards and smartphones. This will involve the installation of NFC readers (Near field communication, the technology behind the system) on the means of transport. The new technique starts from an ordinary credit card, debt or purchase, authorized to execute transactions in proximity of the readers. In addition to this, the payment may be carried just through the smartphones equipped with chips NFR.

With these systems you can pay bus routes and very soon also the subway and other public transport. The chip can also be implanted in the Oyster card, card commonly used by Londoners for the public transport, and it will enable the development of services and applications without licensing requirements.

During start up, will be possible to purchase single route at a reduced price in order to encourage the adoption of the new technology. Obviously, this phase will be long because the cards in circulation in England are over 30 thousand, not counting smartphones. Some difficulties were encountered in harmonizing the payment services of the banks that support the project. In any case, the British city is the first to adopt this service, one hopes that soon follow the same path other European cities.

Now with the phone you really can do everything: check your position and that of another person, listen to calls and read text messages to another phone, even hear what is happening around it; all this with the installation of advanced software Endoacustica. If one day the method of payment via smartphone to be extended to any commercial form, we can really say that without its you cannot live!

Spy mannequins to trap thieves

dicembre 19, 2012 Technology No Commenti

The merchants love it already. The dummy with perfect shapes that occupies all the shop windows of the world could soon become the best friend of the shopkeepers because it may report in real time, not only the presence of thieves and criminals, but also age, gender and tastes of customers. These are spy mannequins of Eye See line, humanoid dolls equipped with miniature cameras for eyes. They record, thanks to facial recognition software, the characteristics of the passers-by and send the data to a software similar to those used by the police to identify criminals.

The dummy bionic technology was launched in 2010 by the Italian Almax Spa together with Kee Square, spinoff of Milan Polytechnic. So behind the silhouette of polystyrene could be hiding a real security guard. Unlike traditional surveillance cameras that record from a well defined corner, the dummy, observing the client, is able to capture more information and creates a database of profiles guaranteeing the anonymity. The influx of the customers, according to the preferred time band, which objects attract them more, the dwell time in front of the shop window and other factors, make possible to customize the service. The CEO of the manufacturer, claims that there aren’t dangers to privacy because the images are only analyzed and not stored.
The European and American legislations allow the use of cameras for security purposes, when customers are aware of these systems.

Meanwhile, the Italian engineers, fathers of this invention, are trying to give to the mannequins even the ears in order to record, through microrecorders, comments and criticisms.
Currently each dummy costs about 4000 euro. Some copies have already been sold in some European countries and in the U.S.. In fact, the eccessive expense for the implementation of this technology could easily be avoided with the separate purchase of professional video and audio bugs that allow you to get guaranteed results.

The helmet to see 360° like flies

dicembre 13, 2012 Technology No Commenti

It’s called Flyviz and has been designed by a team of French scientists of INRIA (National Institute for Research in computer science and automation).
The helmet to see the reality at 360° offers an instant overview on the sides of the body and on the back. This prototype, presented first in Paris, then at the conference “Virtual Reality Software and Technology 12” of Toronto, could have great applications in surveillance and security fields because it allows real-time to detect dangers around himself. The patented system is based on items currently available on the market: a digital micro camera, a laptop, an helmet and a display.
Therefore, the helmet works thanks to a digital microcamera connected to the upper part of it which, pointed towards one hemispherical mirror, allows to acquire images at 360°. The images would result distorted, as if we looked at the world from the reflection in a sphere. At this point the computer connected to it, corrects the visual, making it perfectly adherent to the reality through the technique of the spherical projection. Once completed the perfecting, the images are transmitted, with a transmission delay of only 83 milliseconds, on a small screen located inside the helmet, in front of the eyes of the observer and gradually to the right and to the left.

Apart from the applications that the instrument could have in the military sector, the helmet was designed primarily to study human perception. In fact this isn’t a “virtual reality”, but an increase of the natural visual field of the human being. Of course to learn to use it, you will need of an initial training.
If the device will enter into common usage, many sports enthusiasts who want to emphasize their feats with high level videocameras will also enjoy.

Internet of things will revolutionize our daily

dicembre 10, 2012 Localization, Technology No Commenti

Web 3.0 isn’t yet far away. All the big laboratories are working hard to develop new applications concerning the Internet of things. With this neologism has been named the last frontier of online technology. The strength lies in the possibility given to objects to interact with each other by capturing and exchanging information.
The alarm clock may sound for example in advance once found, through the Internet, heavy traffic conditions. And so the refrigerators could buy online the ideal food for our diet, the plants could alert the watering that they need water, the containers of medicines communicate that you forgot to take a pill.
In short, all objects of common use may have access to the network by changing radically our daily life. Almost all things will possess its own IP address becoming so connected and traceable. It’s assumed that by 2015, 15 billion devices will be online. Bob Kahn, the man who together with Vinton Cerf, invented in the seventies the data transmission protocol on which is based the Web, is working in the United States in the development of the project.

The goal of the Internet of things is to ensure that the electronic world draw a map of the real world, giving an electronic identity to the things and to the places in the physical environment. In short, the real objects collect environmental data, process them and interact virtually with each other through microantennas 3G, wi-fi and GPS systems. The equipments will also continue to miniaturize themselves reaching the size of the most advanced bugs for fields of application increasingly numerous.

Everything will be smart, from the house to the city. An example will be the urban transport system in London: the sensors of the subway trains will signal to passengers in the carriage where there are empty seats, the parking will be on the network, so as to be sure to find a place before you get into the car, the semaphores will coordinate so as to dispose the traffic effectively.

The fields of application will be numerous: from industrial ones to logistics and information services, energy efficiency, remote service and environmental protection.
The stumbling block is the privacy safeguard. If all our items will be online, track our movements will be very simple, as already happens today with the most modern GPS tracking systems. It will be like wearing 24-24h a surveillance camera. The solution could be the installation of switches, if required, disabling the tracking. But these are still hypotheses, we have to wait at least 2015 in order to begin to feel first hand the pros and cons of this new technology.

Glasses of the future

dicembre 4, 2012 Technology No Commenti

Could be the top objects of the technology of the new year. Smart glasses. Were launched by Google in early 2012 as “augmented reality glasses” that can keep users constantly connected to the Internet without use the hands.
Obviously this new idea was quickly imitated and integrated. The last competitors, in chronological order, are the cousins of the Microsoft. This patent, submitted by Redmond, would be aimed at providing real-time information about your surroundings. Data on everything that the user sees, from objects to large events. The lenses, capturing the gaze direction, will govern the display and the optics in the best way.

While Google Glasses have very similar characteristics to those of a smartphone, Microsoft proposes a “wearable computing” that works in real time and with new features.
We don’t know which operating system will be used, but obviously they will be equipped with the most classic and now indispensable tools: camera, tracking systems, microphones, WiFi and Bluetooth.

These type of glasses could be the evolution of the surveillance systems on the market for some time. These are glasses with a video camera and a recorder built-in that allow for fun or for professional reasons to record what happens around without being seen. In fact, the mount hides the micro audio and video tools. Endoacustica glasses have a built-in memory card with the capacity of 4 GB, in which the files are saved.
The devices are usually used by law enforcement or intelligence agents, but more often are bought by people who want to take hands-free, by who practice sport or even by those who need to gather evidence furtively. This type of systems and many others can be purchased from the website www.endoacustica.com.

The Cyber City born in the USA

novembre 29, 2012 Technology No Commenti

15 thousand of users virtually trained to fight in order to defend the networks of the American institutions that would have entered in the sights of hacker attacks originating primarily from China and Iran. A few weeks ago there was talk of an attack on the White House that was quickly stemed by US computer technicians. This and other episodes have led Defense and Security officers to take serious actions in the field of virtual security. Defense Secretary, Leon E. Panetta, said that digital attacks “could be as destructive as the terrorist attack on 9/11”. Cybercity is the answer to these alarmisms almost justified at the dawn of 2013.

The virtual city has, like every other city, a bank, a bar, a hospital and all the necessary services. The “citizens” would be the computer experts of the Pentagon in course of training for fighting cyber battles and defeat those who try to enter in the monitored sites.
The city is managed by a computer security company, made up of very experienced hacker, which is based in New Jersey. To develop the abilities of users are continuously simulated attacks of all kinds: the lack of network that controls the subway, the absence of traffic lights after a hacker attack…

Cyber City isn’t the only project under development in the context of a possible cyber war but, as it’s easy to understand, even the “enemies” are gearing up and in very short time. In America they are also working on “Plan X“, a complete map of the billions of computers around the world connected to the network. Most likely other governments are developing resources similar to those of the U.S. Defense; in fact the importance of computers and the internet have reached, is now significant and evident and who neglects this aspect could become easy prey for a war much more real than today can be understood.

But the cyber war isn’t only to think about the levels of Wall Street or the Pentagon, but it’s a widespread practice among companies around the world. Industrial espionage occurs more and more often online. With simple tools such as a USB key you can absorb all the files and documents on a pc and in the same way, you can record all keystrokes typed, be they words or password. You just have to redesign, like the Americans, your security systems, possibly increasing the use of microcameras that can ensure complete control of workstations and consequently the way in which the tools are used.

Technologies for surveillance

novembre 26, 2012 Technology No Commenti

Mini wireless airships, missiles ultrafast that cross the planet in few minutes, small aerial video surveillance helicopter, sophisticated audio-video devices. These are the most modern technologies in the service of intelligence.
To spy are used special mobile phones, computers remotely monitored and everyday objects cleverly changed. Unlimited source for intelligence is doubtless internet and in particular social networks. A kind of self monitoring through the post that, along with the IP addresses, allow you to precisely locate a person. On the other hand, today isn’t only the PC the domestic object that can connect to the Internet, but also a wide range of devices from television to GPS car.

According to Oleg Glazunov, expert of the military politocologists association, the object most suitable to control a person is the mobile phone. In fact, the device can be easily modified and thus allow not only to listen the conversations inbound and outbound, but also to read the sms.
Through a valid GPS system is easy to know at any time where is the cell and consequently its owner. Also, if you aren’t in possession of a mobile phone, but near there is a phone apparently unused, you can however be listened.

All of these advanced tools are putting a strain on the work of spies. In fact, often the tools to be used don’t need of experts, but they work in a very simple and are accessible by anyone.
For example, a few years ago on television we have seen the use of drones during military operations in the Middle East. These are “robots”, now regularly enrolled by the armed forces of many countries. These are even able to fly and perform surveillance missions in the no-fly zone to intercept aircraft not authorized, on the sea to look for passengers of a boat in trouble or among the most inaccessible mountains in search of missing. Some drones are controlled at km away, others can be programmed and then work in complete autonomy for hours and hours. Naturally, the same can also be used as bombers or kamikaze.
The American army has recently confirmed that it has used a particular flying drone in Afghanistan, which, equipped with a load of explosives, can be programmed to launch against a target and than explode.
