What Will Happen If Google Glass Tracks Your Brain. !

Google Glass is the wearable technology developed by Google. It is released earlier this year. This makes me to think about famous Einstein quote “I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiot”. Yes, it can do more than human can do. Because of technology development.

Now just think what will happen if it tracks your brain. As you should already know that Google tracks the online activity of users and shows the ad that might be interested to users.As we seen in Gmail that it show the ad related to that mail.

A new wearable device, developed by a company called Personal Neuro, is capable of tracking the brain activity of its users. The device can apparently sense taste and emotion, thanks to electroencephalography (EEG). Tony Gaitatzis, an executive at Personal Neuro, says:

The potential is incredible and hyper-targeted to the point where it is no longer advertising. Let’s say a person goes to Barclays and geolocation recognizes this. Maybe it’s time to start advertising Barclays to them.

Such a tech make Google to Collect your brain data and then use that to suggest brands and ads that you might be interested in. Data from EEG scans when used with eye-tracking and GPS location could allow more personalized marketing.

But Google does not confirm that it will certainly use it in future. But may be they will. So, what would you think If Google tracks your brain to advertise.? Feel free to share your thoughts in comments below.

Apple’s iRadio streaming service

apple-icloud_music

 

With Apple being the secretive outfit that it is, there are always plenty of rumors doing the rounds about what high-tech goodies it might or might not have up its sleeve.

Recent talk has focused on the so-called iTV and the possibility of an iWatch. And over the weekend, another i-product hit the headlines, though admittedly not for the first time.

report from The Verge over the weekend claimed iRadio, a music streaming service set to rival the likes of Spotify and Pandora, is gearing up for a summer launch.

“iRadio is coming. There’s no doubt about it anymore,” music industry insiders told the tech site. The “multiple” sources added that talks between Apple and leading music labels such as Universal and Warner had taken significant steps forward recently, increasing the chances of a launch in the coming months.

According to a recent New York Post report, the Cupertino company is pushing for a deal that would result in it paying 6 cents per 100 song streams. Pandora is reportedly paying 12 cents for the same number of song streams, while Spotify is said to be paying around 35 cents.

“Music label insiders suggest Apple — which is sitting on a cash hoard of roughly $137 billion — ought to pay at least the rate set by the Copyright Royalty Board, or about 21 cents per 100 songs streamed,” the Post reported.

So would the music labels really ink a deal with the tech giant for that kind of money? With Apple’s iDevices and iTunes software so widely used, quite possibly. And if they do, and Apple launches iRadio some time this year, Albert Fried & Co. analyst Richard Tullo believes the service could pull in some 20 million users in its first 12 months. Pandora, which launched in 2005, is believed to have around 150 million users.

There have been several reports over the last six months or so suggesting Apple is prepping a streaming radio service. In September, the Wall Street Journal reported that a free, ad-supported service would be made available across all of Apple’s hardware products – ie. its mobile devices and Mac computers – and possibly PCs running Windows, too.

And in February, graphic designer Austin Smith was tinkering with iOS 6.1’s system files on his iPod Touch when he stumbled across data linked to icons showing an antenna broadcasting a signal while exploring. No, Apple developers won’t have thrown them in there just for the fun of it.

There’s currently no word on whether iRadio would get a global launch or be restricted to US-based users at the beginning. Lets wait for that, Apple may launch this in this summer..

BionicOpter dragonfly

3-29-2013festobionicopter

BioniCopter was built by Festo, a tech firm that has taken cues from nature to improve robotic flight before with their SmartBird. With a 63-centimeter wingspan and weighing in at just 175 grams, BioniCopter is a pretty neat addition to their lineup that offers some insight into new types of flight.

The way a dragonfly maneuvers in the air is fairly unique compared to the other flying creatures in the world. The 17.3-inch long dragonfly drone can flutter through the air in any direction without moving their wings, hover in place, or move quickly in any direction.Its four carbon fiber and foil wings beat up to 20 times per-second, propelling it through the air as if it were swimming rather than flying. Their four wings are positioned in two different positions, and they move in slightly different ways, which is what sets this insect apart from the rest of the fliers out there. Replicating this ability in a flying machine requires not only a unique physical design, but a unique program to drive the machine. Despite being a little different from the other quadcopter machines out there, the BionicOpter can still be easily driven with a smartphone apps.
