Find parking faster. Pay more easily. Avoid tickets. SFMTA’s SFpark project is a two-year federally funded pilot of new parking management technologies and approaches. Less circling and fewer double-parked cars give us cleaner air and safer streets for bicyclists and pedestrians. With less traffic, public transit and emergency vehicles move more easily.
Really nice concept to utilize Amazons MechTurk and a glimpse of light at the tunnel of the private picture chaos.
The Descriptive Camera works a lot like a regular camera—point it at subject and press the shutter button to capture the scene. However, instead of producing an image, this prototype outputs a text description of the scene.
The technology at the core of the Descriptive Camera is Amazon’s Mechanical Turk API. It allows a developer to submit Human Intelligence Tasks (HITs) for workers on the internet to complete. The developer sets the guidelines for each task and designs the interface for the worker to submit their results. The developer also sets the price they’re willing to pay for the successful completion of each task. An approval and reputation system ensures that workers are incented to deliver acceptable results. For faster and cheaper results, the camera can also be put into „accomplice mode,“ where it will send an instant message to any other person. That IM will contain a link to the picture and a form where they can input the description of the image.

3D Projection Mapping is an interesting technology with many areas of application. In this video a Russian visualization company has made an impressive presentation for Marlboro and Audi.
The complex process of aligning the projection and animation onto the car’s body is demonstrated in the beginning. The holographic illusion created by this technology is suited for 3D animation and even photo-realistic projection on every three-dimensional object.

This Lamp is a real beauty itself . Moreover, it highlights the beauty and strangeness of other objects; little treasures we all know in daily life.

Grabing ellusive sensations in your attention focus can be hard, espacially if there are many of them.
Don’t beat yourself up, older poeple got it even harder.
