Panamera Sport Turismo

20. Dezember 2012 - 19:52 Uhr

On the Paris Motor Show this year in September Porsche already introduced its
Panamera Sport Turismo concept study.

A great sports car powered by a plug in hybrid.

Now a video has been released introducing the thoughts of the designers about the design language. The whole concept is really worth to watch. Not only the exterior but also the interior show beautiful and interesting details. The interior features a TFT instrument cluster and a black panel multitouch display in the central console.

The Evolution of the Mobile Phone-NTT DOCOMO

13. Dezember 2012 - 18:33 Uhr

The mobile phone, or cell phone, or smartphone as we now tend to call it, has come a long way since its invention. To celebrate its 20th anniversary Japanese communications company NTT DoCoMo put together an actual display, illustrating the the evolution of its phone line.

While you probably can’t go see the physical installment, you can see this picture. Sure, it doesn’t show every phone ever made by everyone and rather just the ones by DoCoMo, it still gives you a great look into the evolution of the device as whole, where it came from, and where it is now. Take a look.

The painting fool is a software which is developed by Simon Colton in the research program Computational Creativity Research at Imperial College London.

The development has started with the approach to create an intelligent skillful, appreciative and imaginative painting software. Since then the software has been constantly improved and provoked various discussions about creativity such as, the connection between creativity and emotions, how creativity is defined, and a lot of other issue in the field of philosophy, arts and sciences.

The painting fool has the ability to draw portraits according to the emotion of the people. He is also able to make collages which illustrates the content and mood of an special topic. Therefor the software searches by itself through websites such as Flickr and Google collecting pictures, arranging and editing them.

Nearly the painting fool should also be able to produce sculptures, animations and even poetry. The developers hope that one day, the painting fool is called a real creative artist.

Smartphones – Extensions turning them into Super Gadgets

5. Dezember 2012 - 16:26 Uhr

A new trend is becoming visible in technology: Add-on products for smartphones. This is a clever new business model – because the target group „Smartphone Owners“ is a very interesting consumer group. They have proven to be tech-savy, ressources-rich and many count as „Early Adopters“ – and, on top of that, the group is growing and growing. Simply a perfect group of consumers.

Here two nice smartphone extention examples:

1) A tele camera lens that can be clipped onto the iPhone lens. Costing as little as 20€. Enabling higher quality photography.

2) A second screen smart case that can be slipped around iPhone 5. Turning otherwise unused space on into an e-Ink screen.
