Since a three-dimensional object casts a two-dimensional #shadow , we should be able to imagine the unknown four-dimensional object whose shadow we are. I for my part am fascinated by the search for a one-dimensional object that casts no shadow at all.

Take a #trip
Taking a trip means physically go somewhere you've never been before where no one knows your name, see the world differently and jump into a new culture. It has to do with forcing yourself to gain different perspectives and how you see reality; Reality is made of language and so how you map your reality really matters.

Very true. It is not important to take same route again and again because everytime I get different feelings like it is the first time.

Termes project, is developing a swarm construction system where lots of little #robots team up to build structures that would be impossible for any one single little robot to put together. It's called "Termes" after our noble and endlessly destructive pals the #termites , who use teamwork to fabricate mounds of earth up to 30 feet high.

The TERMES robots are very simple, but are capable of working together to build relatively complex structures over time, using a simple set of rules that don't require any centralized command or control. 

To recap, these robots are a #swarm in the sense that there's a bunch of them all working on the same project, but on the other hand each acts independently, coordinating their work through their shared environment. So they're not like a colony where a robot queen (or other overseeing entity) directs them to do what they do; rather, each robot has an idea in its little head of what structure it's trying to build, and will drop its building block wherever it finds a space in need of one. It'll avoid other robots while doing this, but otherwise ignore them.

There are other advantages to a #decentralized system like this: you can build the same structure with one robot or a million robots, it'll just take a little (or a lot) longer or shorter to do so. If a robot croaks, it doesn't matter, and you can add or remove robots as you see fit without messing up your build plans.

#SmartGlasses  or smart glasses is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display (OHMD) or computerized internet-connected glasses with transparent heads-up display (HUD) or augmented reality (AR) overlay that has the capability of reflecting projected digital images as well as allowing the user to see through it.

Yeah, it seems that one of the major uses of smart glasses is to capture a scene instantly.

Try to disprove your theories!
Great video showing how programmed we are to follow the expected "YES" answer

+Thomas Hatfield Yes, good point. It may also reflect one aspect of modern life that people tend to go for
complicated solutions and are expected to be challenged by perplexing questions.

What if you were able to clean your clothes at home without using any water?
Conventional washing machines cause excessive damage and wrinkling to clothes primarily during the #water removal step. With the introduction of high efficiency washers, not only has cleansing performance been improved, but water and energy consumption has also decreased. The Seeker desires to revolutionize the laundry process with a novel technology that uses no liquid, creates no wrinkles, and does not damage clothes.

if we understand the power of self-amplifying feedback loops, the way our spaces influence our thinking and our thinking in turn influences our spaces, we could then control what happens to us by exercising creative control over the circumstances that we throw ourselves into.

By cultivating rich social networks, by cultivating weak ties, not just closed ties but the weak ties, by becoming connectors and by connecting others so that they connect us, we create a world in which these self-amplifying feedback loops feed on top of each other.  So good circumstances lead to other good circumstances which lead to other good circumstances and each one of them encourages us to then live more openly and participate in that sort of creative flow space.  You can go on and on.
