Logging SmartThings to the Internet of Things
I got a SmartThings hub for Christmas. It does a lot of cool things, but it doesn't draw graphs for things like temp, humidity, etc. Well, I had to fix that, so this post describes that journey and, frankly, it's easy enough that you can do it too. If you a...

Like Minds is a #speculativefiction thriller set 40 years from now.  This #scifi crime drama begins when a virtual reality coder finds out someone he was just chatting with has been murdered by a serial killer.  And the killer is targeting people like him.

The FBI agent he contacts has to choose between following the rules to fix her tainted reputation or risk her career and life to figure out what’s really going on, how to stop it, and how to save the coder.

There are elements of a crime drama, sci-fi #thriller, and even a #fantasy novel as Trobden an elf becomes pivotal to the story.  A boy, believing he’s just playing an elven rogue in an #augmentedreality WoW-like game layered over the streets of Chicago finds it may be more than just a game.

It’s set in a future-possible world colored by artificial reality, neural implants, transcontinental bullet trains, smuggling, augmented reality, and murder.

A team of scientists, at the University of Tokyo’s Institute of Industrial Science, has created an entirely new type of glass that is nearly as tough as steel. According to the researchers, the breakthrough could herald a whole new generation of incredibly sturdy windows, tableware, and even super-durable displays for a range of electronics, including smartphones, tablets and computers.
