Smile for the Bouncing Ball

If you make your living in a dangerous profession like the military, police or disaster response, knowing what’s around the corner can mean the difference between life and death. 

An MIT-hatched startup called Bounce Imaging has developed a new technology to put eyes on areas that are too dangerous to enter blind. The device is called Explorer. It is a softball-sized orb that holds a camera with six lenses pointed in different directions and either visible-light or near-infrared LEDs. Read more and see video of the device in action below.

The only important thing I took away from the Sander clear video: LP PUTTING ON MUSIC BEFORE HE GOES INTO BATTLE (and probably punching to the beat) GIVES ME LIFE.

Just a really quick sketch, so it’s not meant to be quality.

Hedy Lamarr starred in dozens of films throughout her impressive acting career, some of which are considered classics. But what many people may not know is that the Austrian actress made significant contributions toward wireless communication technology that are still used today.

While married to Friedrich Mandl, a fascist armaments manufacturer, Lamarr attended official meetings where military technologies were discussed with business partners. After ending her tumultuous marriage, she met her neighbor George Antheil, a composer and inventor. Using her knowledge of radio-controlled torpedoes acquired from the meetings she witnessed, Lamarr developed a frequency-hopping system with Antheil for Allied war efforts. Named the Secret Communications System, it rapidly switched random synchronized frequencies using a piano keyboard—88 frequencies, like 88 piano keys—and guided torpedoes away from their desired targets.

The system was never adopted by the military during World War II, but the technology was granted US Patent No. 2,292,387 and Lamarr and Antheil were inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014. The “Secret Communications System” is still used as the basis of modern spread-spectrum communication technology, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

Happy birthday, Hedy Lamarr!

The concept of earbuds not joined to each other in any way first came to many people’s attention via Bragi Dash or Earin. The idea is catching on, though, with more headsets – including known brands – getting in on the action. Is this the future of wireless earbuds? Newcomer Erato, with its Apollo 7 set, seems to think so, and – like Bragi and Earin – it’s hoping you’ll be excited enough to fund it on Kickstarter.
