Hearing aids that are as trendy as glasses

hearing aid

Great to see Republicans and Democrats in the US offering bipartisan support to encourage new competition and innovation in a market that has been dominated by a handful of specialized companies. Their efforts could catalyze a sea change in the cost and design of devices for people with mild and moderate hearing loss, even making hearing aids look trendy so more people wear them. www.dopplerlabs.com

Short Story Vending Machine

short-stories-vending-machine-2-1

These inventive vending machines have been popping up around France. Instead of dispensing sweet treats or sugary drinks, however, these kiosks distribute short stories! Sleek in design and minimal in effort, each vending machine offers an appealing way for commuters and customers to kill time. To use the innovative inventions, simply choose your desired reading time: 1 minute, 3 minutes, or 5 minutes. Then, the machine will surprise you with a randomly-selected short story to occupy your time and make waiting around a bit more bearable—if at least for a couple of minutes. 🙂  http://short-edition.com/en/

Election night as a community event

IMG_1585

In the UK, all the candidates for a seat gather in community halls wearing coloured ribbons that correspond with their party. They then have to line up on stage while an official reads out their individual results.  Prime Minister Theresa May had to be on stage with not just her Labour, Liberal Democrat and Greens challengers, but also with candidates dressed up as Elmo, a Texan Elvis, and a Ned Kelly impersonator, going by the name of Lord Buckethead. https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/amp.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-opinion/uk-election-australia-should-adopt-this-delightful-but-awful-tradition-20170609-gwnzse.html

Bowling reimagined

Europeans have taken bowling alleys to a new and more artistic, experiential level. The balls certainly strike a more stylish note, but what about the shoes? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/photo-essays/2017-05-18/stunning-modern-palaces-for-an-ancient-sport

Making your environment interactive

Lightform is a new technology that’s able to project different patterns and content onto individual surfaces. It turns any surface into a video screen-augmented reality without the headset. You could wrap a movie around your living room wall. Or cast one pattern on a vase and another on a chair. In one demo, Lightform technology projects glowing menu items onto a blank blackboard. https://lightform.com

An artistic unfolding of light

interior_studio_13

Lumio re-imagines lamp light. It engages you by presenting the device somewhat like a magic trick. When closed, Lumio can sit on a shelf inconspicuously and appear to be a book with a wooden or fabric cover. Yet when opened, the rechargeable LED light shines through the “book’s” Tyvek pages with a warm glow. Because it isn’t tethered to an outlet by a cord, Lumio can sit on a table, on a bed and even outside on a patio. A leather strap that’s included with the kit can transform it into a pendant light suspended from the ceiling or even a tree branch in the woods. http://www.hellolumio.com

Criminals promoting a police museum

IMG_0927

I was quite surprised when I saw these life-size figures in the dark near Circular Quay Sydney. When I looked more closely I saw that they were criminals from the early 1900’s standing in front of the Justice and Police museum- a clever way to attract attention to the museum. www.sydneylivingmuseums.com.au/justice-police-museum

Learning geometry is as easy as playing a game

Crafty Cut

Crafty Cut, from Preloaded, aims to solve the challenges of learning geometry. It presents students with an imaginatively designed game that teaches the conceptual underpinning of geometry by relating flat 2-D representations of various shapes to the 3-D world. To accomplish this, Crafty Cut: (1) does not require a pre-requisite in algebra or even arithmetic, (2) is a game that students enjoy instead of a “subject,” and (3) has teaching aids that are built into the game. This product is an imaginative idea because the teaching approach leapfrogs flaws in traditional geometry instruction by gamifying the learning experience. http://preloaded.com/games/crafty-cut
