FlyKly: Kickstarter proposal for a Smart Wheel with app integration

"Smart Wheel is a pedal assist which means it helps you ride your bike effortlessly. The motor turns on when you start pedaling and begins accelerating to your desired speed. It stops when you stop. It saves you time by getting you to your destination faster and gets you there without losing your breath or breaking a sweat. ...

FlyKly App allows you to control and monitor the Smart Wheel. It also offers many other features like safety, support and social connectivity. It's available for free for iOS and Android devices with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and for the Pebble Watch."

(Niko Klansek, FlyKly)

Towards a Performative Aesthetics of Interactivity

"I identify a two–decade period – roughly speaking 1985–2005 – as the pioneering experimental period of (computer based) interactive art. Crucial to the understanding of work in this period is the blindingly rapid development of the technological context. At the beginning of the period the graphical user interface was a novelty, the internet barely existed, the web was a decade away, interactivity was an intriguing concept. The production of acceptably high resolution illusionistic digital pictures (still frames) was an active research area and a megabyte of RAM was something luxurious.

The period neatly brackets the emergence of most of the major technological milestones which now undergird digital culture and ubiquitous computing: WYSIWYG, digital multimedia, hypermedia, virtual reality, the internet, the world wide web, digital video, real–time graphics, digital 3D, mobile telephony, GPS, Bluetooth and other mobile and wireless communication systems. It was a period of rapid technological change, euphoria and hype."

Fig.1 Sniff and Performative Ecologies were included in Emergence, a show of Artificial Life Art curated by Simon Penny and David Familian at the Beall Center for Art and Technology, University of California Irvine, December 2009–April 2010. Regrettably Performative Ecologies did not function as designed during the exhibition.

Light Blue Optics unveils Light Touch: a 10-inch touchscreen pico projector based on lasers

"They promised us a device in 2010 and sure enough, Light Blue Optics just announced Light Touch. As the name implies, LBO's product is a laser projector that turns any flat surface into an auto–focused and image–adjusted 10–inch touchscreen with WVGA resolution thanks to its laser– (not LED) based pico projection engine dubbed HLP (holographic laser projection) and infrared touch–sensing system. Light Touch runs Adobe Flash Lite 3.1 and includes WiFi and Bluetooth radios, 2GB of on–board storage (with microSD slot for up to 32GB more), and a battery capable of about 2–hours worth of runtime."

(Thomas Ricker, 5 January 2010, Engadget)

Folding Pocket PC Keyboard With Maximum Style

The Thinkoutside Stowaway Universal Bluetooth Keyboard is a ingenious wee device. The PDA accessory is super small and easy to set–up. The keyboard automatically turns itself on as you fold it out. And is ready to use once it has been initially paired with your PDA. I am using mine with an Acer n30 Pocket PC after discovering the flaw in the PDA?s infrared port placement. The only real hassle that I've discovered so far with this set–up is that the PDA needs to be re–paired each time I use it with another bluetooth device. I'm guessing that this is the Acer n30?s limitation though, not anything to do with the keyboard.
