Fashionable On-Skin User Interfaces
“DuoSkin is a fabrication process that enables anyone to create customized functional devices that can be attached directly on their skin. Using gold metal leaf, a material that is cheap, skin-friendly, and robust for everyday wear, we demonstrate three types of on-skin interfaces: sensing touch input, displaying output, and wireless communication. DuoSkin draws from the aesthetics found in metallic jewelry-like temporary tattoos to create on-skin devices which resemble jewelry. DuoSkin devices enable users to control their mobile devices, display information, and store information on their skin while serving as a statement of personal style. We believe that in the future, on-skin electronics will no longer be black-boxed and mystified; instead, they will converge towards the user friendliness, extensibility, and aesthetics of body decorations, forming a DuoSkin integrated to the extent that it has seemingly disappeared.” Cindy Hsin-Liu Kao, Asta Roseway*, Christian Holz*, Paul Johns*, Andres Calvo, Chris Schmandt.

Detroit’s Sneaker Stock Market
“Josh Luber, CEO of StockX, calls it serendipity.
What started as a side project evolved into a visionary new marketplace that led Luber to the right investor and partner, billionaire and downtown Detroit business leader Dan Gilbert. Luber’s idea for the business grew from data work he did as a consultant for IBM. Sneakers were a passion of his from a young age, so he playfully decided to combine tech and sneakers. In 2012, he launched Campless — a platform that acted as the Kelly Blue Book for sneakers.” Amanda Lewan Read Article at Entrepreneur.

View Large Scale 3D Movies Without Glasses
Prototype display enables viewers to watch a 3-D movie from any seat in a theater.
3-D movies immerse us in new worlds and allow us to see places and things in ways that we otherwise couldn’t. But behind every 3-D experience is something that is uniformly despised: those goofy glasses.
Fortunately, there may be hope. In a new paper, a team from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) and Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science have demonstrated a display that lets audiences watch 3-D films in a movie theater without extra eyewear.
Dubbed “Cinema 3D,” the prototype uses a special array of lenses and mirrors to enable viewers to watch a 3-D movie from any seat in a theater. Read More Here.
