More than 1,500 pedestrians landed in emergency rooms in 2010 because of accidents sustained while texting and walking at the same time — up nearly 500% since 2005, according to an Ohio State University study.Other researchers say phones account for 10% of pedestrian injuries, and a half-dozen deaths a year.A handful of brilliant minds have formed ideas to tackle this worldwide epidemic, including texter-only lanes and signs that discourage checking Facebook.Signs that warn drivers of texting pedestrians...Swedish designers Jacob Sempler and Emil Tiismann created these traffic signs for Stockholm.They were installed in three different locations in November 2015.
ARM has acquired Apical, a U.K. designer of embedded computer vision technology, and plans to incorporate that technology into future ARM microprocessor and system-on-chip designs, it said Wednesday.The move will open up new opportunities for designers of autonomous vehicles and security systems, among other connected things, according to ARM CEO Simon Segars.That technology also turned up in Samsung Electronics' new laptop, the ATIV Book 9.Assertive Camera is another of Apical's developments: It's a range of software packages and silicon-based image signal processors for reducing image noise, managing color and shooting high dynamic range images.ARM makes its money by designing chips that others manufacture, or licensing its chip modules for others to incorporate in their own designs.Putting image analysis and interpretation capabilities in hardware could accelerate and simplify the design of a whole host of products, including self-driving cars and security systems.

Among his many abilities is to tengyun , or mount a cloud and fly.The company we re introducing today is called Zhubajie .Scaling up the platform and innovating our products involved a strong element of trial-and-error along the way, said Zhu Yueming, founder and CEO of Zhubajie.Zhu Mingyue, founder and CEO of photo from Zhubajie But Zhu soon found that mere product innovation was not sufficient, as users tended to avoid paying commission and leave the platform once they privately set up contacts.Its major projects fall in three categories: graphic design, web construction, and marketingEmployers can publish a task in either a rewards system, where a best solution is chosen from all submissions, or in a bidding system, where a service provider is chosen for its qualifications and rate before the service is provided.Similar to Witkey, where users share knowledge, share experience, and purchase services and information, Zhubajie used to have three major income sources: commission, ad revenue, and membership fees.The program will negotiate with 120 cities and cover 36 of them within this year, and the company will establish a VC fund to support local enterprises.To build trust between customers and the platform, Zhubajie offers online services called Fuwubao , which guarantees that money is transferred effectively, and that compensation is available should a contract be breached.The platform now has over 15 million users, among which 10 million are service providers and five million are domestic and overseas employers, creating revenue of RMB 7.5 billion in 2015.Top photo screened from Zhubajie s official site
REUTERS/Mike Blake Reuters - United Parcel Service Inc, the world's largest package delivery company, said on Wednesday it will expand the 3D printing services provided through its UPS Stores to create an on-demand manufacturing network starting this summer.Atlanta-based UPS and SAP SE also announced a partnership in which Europe's largest software company will provide supply chain solutions to help manufacturers get products to market more quickly and at a lower cost."Speed is critical to us and we see tremendous value" in extending SAP's capabilities further down the supply chain via UPS, said John Dulchinos, vice president for strategic capabilities at contract manufacturer Jabil Circuit Inc, in a telephone interview with Reuters.UPS already offers 3D printing services using ABSplus, an industrial grade thermoplastic, at more than 60 UPS Stores around the United States.Under the new system, customers will be able to upload digital designs to First Radius, a company specializing in 3D printing in which UPS holds a minority stake.IDC Research Inc analyst Robert Parker said the network will bring UPS only modest benefits at first because 3D printers have limited capabilities at present and few printable materials available.
When James Young lost an arm and a part of a leg in an accident on his morning commute, he thought his love of playing video games was over.But after spotting an advert he began to work with prosthetics designers to create a unique limb that looks like something straight out of a science fiction movie.
There s the silent protagonist: a buzz-cut, space marine who sprints hyperactively through monotone corridors, firing shotgun rounds into the faces of occult-ish monsters.Doom made millionaires of its young designers, a group that included the wunderkind programmer John Carmack, who last month was awarded a Bafta fellowship, the Academy s highest honour.Then last year s Undertale allowed you, finally, to befriend them.This is a game designed to be played molto allegro; Run isn t a toggle on the keyboard – it s the default pace.2016 s Doom borrows the concept.Still, at least the sky is a nice shade of mustard yellowDoom s muscular campaign is its strongest asset, but there is some joy to be had in its fidgety multiplayer mode although this, bizarrely, requires the console game to reboot each time you wish to play online .
littleBits' founder Ayah BdeirDavid RowanEditor of Wired magazineFollow @iRowanThis article was first published in the June 2016 issue of WIRED magazine.The "moment" – when pressure sensors, motion triggers and servo motors are suddenly transformed into magic – is currently being discovered in 3,000 schools, and among 230 local enthusiast communities that the company calls "global chapters".We want to empower young and old to feel creative, confident and active, and to be inspired and empowered by technology.Her parents nurtured that curiosity with chemistry sets and electricity kits; but she was also influenced by her three sisters, all designers."It's attracted to our team people who believe in a higher purpose, beyond profit; people who are empathetic, willing to put in the extra time to make something work; people who otherwise we couldn't afford; people who are not sabotaging each other."At one point it was a conflict between focusing on keeping retail costs down and building out the profit line.
Because of this, we can squeeze more operations per second into the silicon, use more sophisticated and powerful machine learning models and apply these models more quickly, so users get more intelligent results more rapidly.Intriguingly, Jouppi says a board with a TPU fits into a hard disk drive slot in our data center racks.He also says Google moved from first tested silicon to using the silicon in production within 22 days.Performance is "an order of magnitude better-optimized performance per watt for machine learning," Jouppi says, or "roughly equivalent to fast-forwarding technology about seven years into the future three generations of Moore s Law ."Jouppi also sheds light on all those reports about Google developing silicon, writing ... great software shines brightest with great hardware underneath.TPUs therefore can account for some of Google's ads that ask for silicon designers.

Children s drawings are a window into a world of animals, monsters, and countless other imaginary creations they wished exist, but only have access to crayons to realize their dreams.Crayola wants to help, and is introducing a new service today that will convert a child s crude drawing into a detailed stuffed animal or plush toy.Using the Crayola Imaginables service is as easy as taking a digital photo of or scanning your child s artwork, uploading, emailing, or texting it to the Imaginables website, and then trying to keep your kid calm and patient while they wait four weeks for the plush version of their doodles to arrive.Because kids don t know the first thing about toy design, and their artistic skills are crude at best, the Crayola Imaginables service uses a team of professional designers and seamstresses to ensure the results look as close to the original drawing as possible, while improving its overall shape, colors, and appearance.Presumably the toy designers will leave out some details if they can t be feasibly recreated in plush—bazookas, flamethrowers, and other kid-popular pyrotechnics come to mind.And the service will probably reject drawings featuring profanity, NSFW sketches, or copyrighted material.
When avid video gamer James White lost his left arm in a grisly railway accident in London several years ago, video game developer Konami teamed up with leading robotics engineers to craft him an innovatively unique prosthetic.Like most prosthetics, sensors attached the skin surrounding his shoulder detect movements and send the necessary movements through the arm and hand.Standard procedure for prosthetics, sure, but it s the arm s extras which truly steal the show.That s right, not only did White regain use of his left arm with the help of Konami and a team of world-class prosthetics designers, but his new arm features an operational UAV that he can fly whenever he wants.Phantom Limb ProjectDeveloped in conjunction with the Konami-created Phantom Limb Project, the hope is that it the United Kingdom will eventually medically approve the arm for use by other amputees across the country.As of now, the arm will remain attached to White via the harness though attaching it via titanium implants is likely the next step.
Adobe this morning launched a new suite of apps called Adobe Spark, which allow both web and mobile users to create and share visual content – like posts for social media, graphics, web stories, and animated videos.While it leverages concepts from Adobe s pro tools like Photoshop and InDesign, like the ability to layer images with text and filters, it makes this accessible to everyday users who can make these sorts of changes just by tapping buttons.It s basically a simplified web editing platform, with tools that let you mix text and imagery in a highly visual way.Instead, you combine text, images, icons and themes in a presentation, then speak your voice over the story in order to create the video.What s really changed is that they now interoperate with Spark s web service, which means you can create content from a laptop, Chromebook or tablet.Adobe Spark is a free service, available via, which will also direct you to the iOS downloads.
The angsty 1990s were behind us, the dotcom bubble was swelling and yet to come was the market bust and war on terror .TLC: inhabiting the spirit of the age with shiny clothesSynthetic or metallic-looking materials, inflatable furniture, moon-boot footwear and alien-inspired hairstyles were just a few signposts of the spirit of the age.He s even begun seeking donations to enable him to divert even more of his focus to studying Y2K designs.At the turn of the millennium, he says, computer-aided design and drafting software had just advanced enough that designers could experiment with curves, blobs , gradients, layered transparencies and lens flares for the first time.Photograph: Allstar/Warner Bros/Sportsphoto Ltd./AllstarNow with faster internet, a robust community infrastructure online, and more rendering software available at lower prices, artists are able to revisit the Y2K aesthetic and go even further with it – fascinatingly, some of these new pieces feel more true than the more constrained works they emulate.Perhaps in the future people will be able to suss out the threads of American election anxiety, global refugee crisis, or the dark comedy of Silicon Valley culture in the music, architecture and design of today.
While Apple continues to resist making the screens in its line of laptops and desktops touch-sensitive, it may be ready to give the Apple Pencil a life outside of the iPad Pro.A new patent application published Thursday aims to patent a concept for using a future version of the stylus with the company s trackpads.Of course, such a concept is nothing new.The version described in the patent does much more, and would be able to detect motion in six axes, and might also have use as a joystick or air mouse, meaning the Pencil wouldn t necessarily need to be touching a surface in order to operate.Apple has had its stylus in development for at least five years now, well before the Pencil first hit shelves.Combined with Apple s previous patent for new features in a future Pencil and the ability to work with a trackpad-like device, the company could have an even bigger winner on its hands.
Ten years ago, implementing a technology stack in your business was a more straightforward task, primarily because the problems themselves were more straightforward.In general, companies set an internally focused process improvement goal, with technology insertion viewed as a means to an end.Much, if not all, of the internal process improvement companies once sought has been done, and their goals have shifted to managing external relationships with customers.As has always been the case, implementing the right technology stack in your business is still a process, which, at its core, is a carefully orchestrated symphony among top company executives, those mid-level and upper-tier managers whose initiatives and voices your business relies on the most, and, finally, those subject matter experts who really know what it takes to get it done.To ensure success, create a visual, interactive road map of both your current and planned technology stack, so everyone on the team has a systemic understanding of which technologies your company uses, why they re using them as well as what s changing and why.Maybe your company recently hired a new chief marketing officer who wants to use Pardot as part of the organization s email marketing campaign.
The Xiaomi Mi Box, though, is pretty enough to keep in plain view, and backs up the good looks with impressive specs.Even the best designers can t do much in the rounded black square genre, but the Mi Box makes the most of it.The Mi Box joins a wave of Android TV set-top boxes that can stream 4K and come with Google Cast baked in.The optional gaming controller shakes and rumbles and vibrates, though you presumably can BYOBluetooth controller of choice.That s changing as devices proliferate and apps like ESPN, Disney, and Spotify join the ecosystem.The Mi Box provides a more overt introduction to a company that does what so few can: Consistently offer well-designed, high-performing products that cost less than you d expect.
Version 7 adds support for the newest Mac and Windows operating systems, automatic cloud-based backup and syncing, and a new plug-in for Adobe After Effects.The new TypeSync feature doesn t replace the Archive and Restore feature introduced in version 6, which lets you copy your entire Font Vault to your Dropbox or Google Drive, and then restore it on another computer.Version 7 adds a completely new plug-in for Adobe After Effects CC 2015, which is being used by more and more designers to create animated text.With this plug-in, you no longer need to remember which fonts were used in each composition, a giant benefit since After Effects on its own doesn t help you determine which fonts are missing.As with earlier versions, Suitcase Fusion 7 includes auto-activation plug-ins for recent Adobe and Quark products, specifically: Photoshop, InDesign, InCopy and Illustrator versions CS6 and higher , and QuarkXPress 10 and 2015.In addition, Extensis new Suitcase TeamSync is an affordable alternative for teams who want to share the same font library but can t justify the cost or maintenance of Extensis Universal Type Server product.
