Control your world by thought with a headset that reads your brainwaves

August 3rd, 2010 by LG Blog UK
 
Innovations in technology affect entertainment and design, as you could equally argue that developments in entertainment or design have a similar impact on the others. Which is where TED comes in. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design and is a non-profit organization dedicated to ‘ideas worth spreading’ The latest of the TEDTalks videos to catch my attention was the innovation of a headset that reads your brainwaves, held by Tan Le from Emotiv Systems, a company who develop this technology surely destined to be the next generation of human-machine interface. The brain is made up of billions of active neurons, when...

Introducing the LG HS200 LED Projector

February 9th, 2010 by LG Blog UK
 
Moving house a lot? Tired of buying a new TV to fit into a different space? As an alternative why not consider the LG HS200 projector which can project any size up to 120 inches. As I am sure most of you are aware, the great thing about a projector is that you can easily choose your required picture size by simply adjusting the distance between the projector and the surface on which you choose to project. Previously though projectors have lacked the picture quality of plasma or LCD displays, and the cumbersome size has hardly made them portable. “LG’s interest lies...

British costcutters say no to restaurants but yes to new mobiles!

August 10th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
 
Last week the BBC announced the results of an Ofcom review which suggests that we Brits are more willing to tighten the purse strings on our holidays and meals out than on spending on communication technology! The watchdog's annual report says spending on mobiles, the internet and TV is regarded as a higher priority than almost anything except food. In a poll of 862 people, over 40% said they would save on holidays and eating out and 19% chose spending on mobiles. Interesting - and good for us! But I wonder what the motivation is, perhaps it's the conveniences our technology affords us;...

Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars

May 14th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
 
If you're a regular reader you may have already noticed my penchant for aerial photography and this is arguably as aerial as it gets!* yes, yes, technically it's not air in space so it probably doesn't count as aerial.. The BBC have a great collection of some of the best photos taken by the Hubble telescope to date, including 'cat's eye' nebulas and the "Pillars of Creation": The Daily Mail also have some photos from Hubble and there are probably hosts of collections doing the rounds this week! - According to a friend this is all to celebrate the release of a...

Self-Healing Paint

May 12th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
 
As spotted on Fast Company, I'm intrigued by the idea of self-healing paint Illinois-based Autonomic Materials has created additives that make paint heal itself. The technology, developed at the University of Illinois, works by embedding hundreds of thousands of microscopic capsules filled with healing agents in every square foot of a painted surface. "When damage occurs, those capsules break open, the healing agents mix, and a new polymer is laid in place where the damage happened," says CEO Larry Evans. "It's like blood clotting on a cut." Autonomic Materials is now working with several major coatings companies to bring its first products...

Living Sasquatch – your very own virtual Bigfoot!

May 1st, 2009 by LG Blog UK
 
The link of the morning in our office (Congrats Mike!) was Living Sasquatch - Sasquatch might be better known as Bigfoot over here.. At least I didn't get it immediately, could just be me though! By either printing off the footprint, or downloading it to your phone and then filming it through your webcam and the site's built-in system you can make your own video clips of the programmable Yeti (they are Yeti, right!?). Cleverly the size of your Sasquatch can be adjusted simply by downloading bigger/smaller footprints - Sasquatch will always be to the same scale as his mark -...

Belated Ada Lovelace Day

March 25th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
 
So I'm going with being fashionably late on this one (yes, fashionable, not dreadfully disorganised and forgetful at all!) yesterday was Ada Lovelace Day; an international day of blogging to draw attention to women excelling in technology. The Finding Ada site explains better than I could: Women’s contributions often go unacknowledged, their innovations seldom mentioned, their faces rarely recognised. We want you to tell the world about these unsung heroines. Entrepreneurs, innovators, sysadmins, programmers, designers, games developers, hardware experts, tech journalists, tech consultants. The list of tech-related careers is endless. Recent research by psychologist Penelope Lockwood discovered that women need to see female...
