Finally, images of the new Google Glass (similar but improvments all around)!
New FCC documents and images leak a new, unannounced business edition of the Google Glass wearable. Check out the pictures from the FCC's website.

As promised, Google's artificial intelligence is now crafting automatic replies to my incoming emails.  They are quite good too!

Fretting over or raging about the minority of protesters who are behaving horribly or the minority of police who are brutal and corrupt is a typical human response. We are all very good at identifying and locking onto problems. It is a trait that has been biologically selected for because it has helped us survive over time. Could that be a man eating lion I see in the tall grass over there? Let's focus on that threat! How about we take the next step and put our efforts into doing what drives progress and makes our species truly great? Creating and implementing solutions! Here are a few quick ideas that immediately come to mind. What's stopping us?

1. Body cameras on all on-duty officers in the United States as Federal Law. Consider any officer telling a civilian to "stop recording" to be a highly illegal act as well. Review the recordings regularly for training and performance review purposes.
2. Implement a "2X" rule for sentencing of all officers convicted of committing serious crimes while on duty. No more special treatment and paid leave for officers who commit crimes themselves. If a cop pistol whips and robs a civilian (e.g., the whole Detroit thing) they should face twice the sentence that a civilian would get for the same crime. 2X across the board.
3. Significantly increase the salaries and benefits of law enforcement officers. If they are going to comply with the two items above (and so much more), they should be properly compensated and (ideally) respected and admired by the general public.
4. Start holding our media more accountable for either misleading or (in some cases) lying to the public for attention and ratings. Freedom of the press should not mean freedom to lie and mislead without repercussions. We need a (non-privately controlled) BBC style outlet here in the US. It's getting ridiculous.

If our scientists can split the atom, land men on the moon and put internet portals in all of our pockets how long should it take us to fully implement changes like those above? Three days? A couple of weeks? If my 4 simple ideas (off the top of my head) are crap, how long to come up with better ones and implement them? Surely there are things that 90% or more of US citizens will agree we should do ASAP. C'mon homo sapiens, get your act together! The universe is (potentially) watching and (probably) laughing at us! : )

Those seem like reasonable and simple solutions to this problem.

Though really this shouldn't be a problem at all.

This looks really cool.. 2015 will be remembered as the launch of virtual reality. The 2020s will be the first decade of immersive cyberspace.
HTC has just announced the Vive, a virtual reality headset developed in collaboration with Valve. It will be available to consumers later this year, with a developer edition coming out this spring....

Competition is good.

By the way the attribute that caught my eye the most was the so called 360 degree field of view.

Yet the thing is obviously only strapped to the front of your head.

If they mean fov so high that screen boundaries are imperceptible. Then I am really excited for this.

At 9 Teraflops, this little card is more powerful than the building-sized "world record holding" super computer of 2001 (from the Lawrence Livermore National Labratory). It also costs under $600 as apposed to $110,000,000. This is the reason deep learning and artificial intelligence is starting to take off.

MIT's "Reality Editor" demonstrates a pretty neat use of augmented reality with fiducials. If the internet of things (IoT) continues to expand at an exponential rate, we could see widespread adoption of these technologies within a decade.
A new kind of tool for empowering you to connect and manipulate the functionality of physical objects.

I will be working with a small team of selected engineers and researchers to rapid prototype a new AR display and tracking system for TALOS this week. I know it's initially going to be a military product and many don't like the idea, but it seems like the most Transhumanist thing that I could be working on right now.. Heck, I'd like one of the helmets for daily use!
Everything from nanotechnology to quantum computing will change the game for how soldiers are geared up in the future.

That is some fast internet.. Bring on the 5G!
Researchers at the University of Surrey in England have achieved 5G speeds of 1 Terabit per second (Tbps) over 100 metres in the lab - by far the fastest wireless connection to date. The 5G, or fifth generation, mobile network will eventually...
