Robert Best2,685Google+ Relevance CircleWhat people of "relevance" do we have in common? Care to share?This big shared circle contains my most "relevant" circles according to G+. It also only contains people/profiles who post publicly (Either occasionally or prolifically).Do you recognize others in the list? (I think the probability is high)As far as I know, the visual beside the "Add people" button below shows you the 8 people from this circle who are most "relevant" to you. Also, if you click that add people button, the list inside is ordered by "relevance".Some people in this circle I know very well... others I haven't met at all (Besides interfacing with what they share publicly on G+) I'm curious, what circles do we share of high relevance? Give a few people shout outs! Let's have a random chat.You were likely notified of this post... I normally don't share to any of my specific circles, so as to avoid sending out unwanted notifications... But since I have you and your attention here... HELLO! Have we talked before? Why do you think I have you circled? What's of relevance for you? (Besides people on G+) If we do know each other... Have we been in touch lately? If not, let's please catch up!2015-03-03 01:03:39455111

Smart jeans, tiny radar, and other crazy inventions from Google's ATAP lab

We saw touch-sensitive fabrics, tiny radar sensors that can pick up the smallest of hand movements, and a MicroSD card that's actually a computer designed with a dash of subterfuge to keep private data away from phones, computers, or anything else you stick it into. It might be years before we see these things, or maybe we never will. The allure is less about the gadgets though, and more about ATAP's ambitions to get them into our hands, pockets, and even suit jackets sometime in the future.

Functional role of frontal alpha oscillations in creativity

Here we show that creativity is increased by enhancing alpha power using 10 Hz transcranial alternating current stimulation (10 Hz-tACS) of the frontal cortex. In a study of 20 healthy participants with a randomized, balanced cross-over design, we found a significant improvement of 7.4% in the Creativity Index measured by the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking (TTCT), a comprehensive and most frequently used assay of creative potential and strengths.

Google's latest Cardboard app is a how-to guide for good VR design

"Over the last several months, we've been, as designers, really digging into what makes a beautiful, amazing design experience. We hit on a few things that are just basic guiding principles," says Wiley. "But one of the things that we figured out early on was that really the best way to learn or see or experience anything in VR, you really can't talk about it or just draw it. You actually have to be there." Thus was born Cardboard Design Lab, a simple VR app about building, well, simple VR apps. Plug your phone into a Cardboard-style headset, open the lab — created in partnership with design studio UsTwo — and you'll get a short guided tour through the best practices for virtual environments.

Google Wants to Turn Everything Into a Wearable

OK, technically Poupyrev’s idea is called Project Jacquard. (The name comes from a classic style of intricate machine weaving.) It aims to bring conductive yarns to every garment and fabric on earth, and then to integrate touch sensors, haptic feedback, and more right into your jeans, car seats, curtains, everything. “If you can weave the sensor into the textile, as a material,” Poupyrev says, “you’re moving away from the electronics. You’re making the basic materials of the world around us interactive.”

ATAP’s ‘Soli’ Radar-Based Gesture Control Could Be The Perfect Wearable Interface

let you control devices using natural hand motions, detecting incredibly fine motions accurately and precisely, even through materials (you could install the sensor beneath a table, for instance). It does this using radar (I’ll get to that later) and allows you to manipulate tiny or huge displays with equal accuracy, thanks to the lack of a need for touch point sizing constraints.

Life-prolonging protein could inhibit ageing diseases

A team of researchers from Japan and Korea set out to understand how this happens. They discovered that a protein, called neuropeptide Y (NPY), which transmits nerve impulses in the brain and autonomic nervous system, is an essential link between dietary restriction and longevity in mice.

Even when we're resting, our brains are preparing us to be social

A new study by UCLA neuroscientists sheds light on why Facebook is such a popular diversion for people who feel like taking a break. Their research shows that even during quiet moments, our brains are preparing us to be socially connected to other people.

"The brain has a major system that seems predisposed to get us ready to be social in our spare moments," said Matthew Lieberman, a UCLA professor of psychology and of psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences. "The social nature of our brains is biologically based."

Google Cardboard Is VR’s Gateway Drug

Cardboard isn’t a perfect VR headset. It won’t be the last one you ever buy. It’s just supposed to be the first one, the gateway drug, the impulse-buy-at-the-supermarket-checkout device that makes you realize how amazing this technology can and will be. You don’t have to drop $1,500 on a high-end PC and an Oculus Rift to see how it feels to open up Google Earth and suddenly be flying into space or standing like a giant in the middle of Bryce Canyon.

Poor diet can cause Alzheimer's or Parkinson's in rats

The scientist at the faculty of chemistry (FCQ) reproduces human consumption in biological models with different genetic conditions. He feeds the animals with a high calorie diet, then analyzes the resulting metabolic disorder, triglycerides, insulin resistance, obesity and overweight development triggered in type II diabetes.

By measuring the effects on the brain, the analysis determined the existence of inflammation and neurodegeneration in the hippocampus and cerebral cortex, important areas for the proper functioning of short and long term memory. "With a diet based on high carbohydrates neurodegenerative conditions arise associated with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases," says Trevino Mora.

Unexpected brain structures tied to creativity, and to stifling it

A surprising link has been found between creative problem-solving and heightened activity in the cerebellum, a structure located in the back of the brain and more typically thought of as the body's movement-coordination center.

GoPro unveils drone, six camera array for VR content

GoPro is building a six-camera spherical array rig that will allow you to create immersive 360-degree photos and video. Woodman actually brought along an early prototype (see below), but said the final product doesn't arrive until the second half of this year.

"For VR to be appealing to non-gamers, it's gonna need content, photo and video content," Woodman said. This GoPro spherical rig could be the source of some of that content. It's like a poor mans's Jaunt device, a VR content capture product recently used to record an immersive Paul McCartney concert experience.

The Elbphilharmonic Hall, Hamburg

The Elbphilharmonic Hall, Hamburg will include 2 concert halls, a 5 star hotel and apartments. The design of the new building was produced by Herzog & De Meuron, in conjunction with Höhler and Werner Kallmorgen. Like a large glassy wave, the concert hall seems to float above the former Kaispeicher warehouse. Two large auditoriums capable of holding 2,150 and 550 visitors will be created in the new glass structure. The almost 100 meter tall performance place will host concerts of classical music, music of the 21st century and sophisticated entertainment music.

Oculus Rift coupled with a new PC will cost you $1,500

Iribe explained that if you buy a brand new PC and an Oculus VR, you will be "all-in" for $1,500. If you need to update your PC with a graphics card, the cost of the card and the VR headset together would be $1,000, explained Iribe.

Iribe also thinks that 3D-mapping is the key to more user-generated content and live events like a virtual Code Conference.

How a Piece of Cardboard Could Be Google’s Ticket to VR

The importance of virtual and augmented reality to Google by now is clear. In addition to Cardboard, the company has invested heavily in experiments like Project Tango, a tablet that can produce realistic models of the world around it, and Magic Leap, a mystery-shrouded augmented reality company that should pose a serious threat to Microsoft’s Hololens. And let’s not forget Google Glass—disappeared but not abandoned—set to make a comeback under the design guidance of Tony Fadell, the man responsible for the original iPod and the Nest thermostat.

HedgeChatter Gives You a Clean Edge in the Stock Market

Hedgechatter is a software service that brings forward the social chatter online for investors to use as an indicator for stock options. Before Hedgechatter, no one placed the vast pool of information found online in one place. There also wasn’t an application that analyzed these social cues in order to give the user real-time insight into the general consensus about a particular stock.

The big drone companies are investing millions to create new drone startups

Three weeks ago, DJI became the most valuable consumer drone company on earth when the venture capital firm Accel invested $75 million in the company. Today the partnership between the two parties deepens, with the announcement of the Skyfund, a joint initiative to invest in drone startups and more broadly across the booming field of robotics and intelligent machines.

Toddler temperament could be influenced by different types of gut bacteria

The microbiome of a toddler’s gut may influence their behavior, a new study suggests. Scientists found correlations between temperament and the presence of specific types of intestinal bacteria in both girls and boys. The researchers aren’t looking for a way to help parents modify the ‘terrible twos,’ but for clues about how - and where - chronic illnesses like obesity, asthma, allergies and bowel diseases start.

SpaceX can now launch military and spy satellites with its Falcon 9 rocket

The US Air Force has certified SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket to launch military and spy satellites, according to Reuters. Currently, the control of those launches is dominated by the United Launch Alliance, a Boeing and Lockheed Martin consortium. Elon Musk and SpaceX spent two years and more than $60 million to acquire the certification. The company will now compete for about one-third of these launches, as it will apparently won't be able to launch the largest satellites until its bigger rocket — the Falcon Heavy — is built, tested, and certified on its own.

Nathaniel Popper’s Digital Gold Sheds Light On The Rise Of Bitcoin

This book is a great primer on bitcoin and it gives you a quick rundown of all the major players. It is a very human book – rarely does Popper get bogged down in technical terms – and it makes it clear that Bitcoin is a boon more for business and less a technoutopianist super-currency. As you watch the price rise to stratospheric heights and then fall swiftly to a steady plateau you can almost feel the urgency of this new digital gold rush and you’re forced to marvel at men and women who made fortunes betting on bits. The language can be clunky at times (Popper notes the sexual attractiveness of the early bitcoin nerds a few too many times for some reason) but on the whole it is a readable adventure story about a battle that’s just beginning.

Going Abroad: A Guideline to Entrepreneur Visas

Looking at the infographic, it seems that startups that have already received a decent amount of funding fare better at being granted entrepreneur visas; many countries, for instance, require that companies already received funding between $40,000 and $100,000. On the other hand, countries like France and Chile don’t require that startups have raised previous funding and, rather, provides startups with monetary grants alongside their entrepreneur visas. Not surprising for a country like Chile, which just earlier this month announced that its national startup accelerator, Start-Up Chile, would be making follow-up investments to its alumni startups; indeed, looking at the guideline, it seems that startups can only qualify for the Chilean entrepreneur visa if they get accepted to Start-Up Chile.

Oculus Acquires Surreal Vision To Bring The Real World To VR

Oculus VR announced the acquisition of Surreal Vision today, bringing the company’s expertise on recreating real-time 3D representations of the outside world into virtualized environments. This means making things like virtual telepresence possible, letting you “be there” without actually being there.

Based on info shared by Surreal Vision regarding the acquisition, it sounds like this will help fuel Oculus’ foray into mixed reality. Mixed reality combines live, real-world content with virtualized additions, as is perhaps most notably demonstrated by Microsoft’s HoloLens project.

Neuroscientists reveals autism's 'noisy' secret: 3-D simulator reveals inner workings of the autistic brain

Strapped into a motion-enabled simulator and wearing 3-D glasses, 36 adolescent volunteers recently experienced what it was like to 'travel' through a field of virtual stars. The experiments provided new and convention-busting data about how sensory stimuli are processed by the brains of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Smartphone app predicts GPA

The results show the app, along with periodic self-reports from students, can predict their GPA within 17 hundredths of a point against their cumulative GPA from their transcripts. The results are statistically significant even for a small cohort. The computational model uses no prior knowledge of students' academic performance, such as SAT scores and IQ.

Master gene regulator could be new target for schizophrenia treatment

Siegert found that in reprogrammed neurons from human fibroblasts of diseased patients, microRNA-137 was increased. This was, in turn, tied to presynaptic defects and impaired synaptic plasticity and cognitive dysfunction. This was a surprise, she says, because although schizophrenia is considered "a disease of the synapse," nobody had ever shown that microRNAs could influence the mechanism through which neurotransmitters are released at the synapse.

Friendships start better with a smile

If you want to strike up a new relationship, simply smile. It works because people are much more attuned to positive emotions when forming new bonds than they are to negative ones such as anger, contempt or sadness. Don't try to fake it, however, because people can recognize a sincere smile a mile away, according to an American study that sheds light on how relationships are formed and maintained.

Does tDCS Accelerate Learning? Is it Safe?

When the brain is stimulated, it is more reactive to natural environmental stimuli. In theory, when the brain is in a more reactive state, there will be a greater number of active cells. This allows for additional opportunities for neuroplasticity to take place. In other words, because more cells are firing and more cells are wiring, a more rapid acquisition of information, able to be measured by changes in behavior, take place (29:30).

Educational games are more effective when they’re hands-on

Think most people would have guessed this.

Using video games as an educational tool is not a new concept, and edutainment titles have been around since at least the days of Oregon Trail and Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? Lately, educational games have been moving into the mobile space much like everything else, but a recent study by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University shows that mixing games with real world interaction is substantially more effective than touchscreen games alone.

Oculus Rift hack transfers your facial expressions onto your virtual avatar

Researchers at University of Southern California (with help from Facebook) have devised a system that tracks a user's facial expressions and translates them onto an avatar in the VR world. It works by using an off-the-shelf Intel RealSense 3D Camera bolted to the front of an Oculus Rift DK2 in order to capture facial movements for the lower half of the face. The really clever part, though, is how it captures movements for the top half of the face, which is obviously covered up.

Once the exclusive purview of online forums, where enthusiasts and self-made DIY neurobiologists would catalog their experiences and reactions to any number of experimental substances, nootropics have gone mainstream, finding devotees among the 21st century’s white-collar elite.

Who Will Be Hurt Most When The Tech Bubble Burst? Not VCs

The situation created by betting on more powerful stakeholders in the ecosystem may leave employees, and perhaps founders staring down at the wrong end of barrel.  The 12.5 million (and growing) Americans employed in VC-backed companies see stock options as the key motivation to invest significant part of their lives working in a start-up. This is in anticipation of the big payday at exit, based mostly on the long-term futuristic growth prospects of these companies.

Someday, pretty soon, these will be put to the test, and valuations based on visibility of earnings will matter again. A few will succeed of course, but several others will fall – it remains to be seen how miserably. VCs will most likely walk away with their invested money, if not more.

It’s the employees and founders who will see their million-dollar dreams crash and burn.

A speculative bubble requires a “who’s the greater fool” syndrome to fuel it. Timing of the burst is what determines who in the market ecosystem would have a harder fall. Right now, cross-hair is clearly on the employees and founders. Not the VCs, for sure.___

NSA is getting ready to shut down bulk surveillance programs in response to failed Senate vote

After a late Senate vote after midnight on Friday, the NSA is starting to take moves to shut down its bulk surveillance programs. With the legal foundation of those programs, the Patriot Act, set to expire at the end of the month, lawmakers have been working to agree on which parts of the mass surveillance systems should stay and which should go. The Senate failed to pass a replacement bill, the USA Freedom Act, and another measure proposed by Senate Majority Leader McConnell (R-KY) to extend the program as-is also did not pass.

Snacking on protein can improve appetite control and diet quality in teens and likely adults

Although eating high-protein, afternoon snacks can aid appetite control in adults, little information exists to guide parents on what types of snacks might benefit their adolescent children. Now, MU researchers have found that afternoon snacking, particularly on high-protein-soy foods, reduces afternoon appetite, delays subsequent eating and reduces unhealthy evening snacking in teenagers.
