What if there was an iPhone app, where you could easily create a universal remote, with all your preferences (favorite channels etc.) easily programmed by a drag and drop interface.
Universal remotes I’ve used in the past are hard to program, and generally don’t work very well…
There would then be a wifi-enabled device in your cabinet, which converts your iPhone commands to infrared, to control all your hardware!

I’ve seen visual search engines like searchme, which are not really usable for me because I can’t read the images (sort of like what I said about Snap previews – an interesting gimmick), but Oamos is different!

The newest offering from Organic Motion, the advanced computer vision software company, offers a leap forward in training and simulation education technology by allowing trainees to interact directly with virtual environments, without the use of body suits or tracking devices. LitePod is ideal for any type of realistic training, including uses for armed services, industry, academia and various government agencies.
“LitePod makes it possible for people to interact, evaluate and learn how to act and react in new immersive environments naturally, without the use of markers” says Andrew Tschesnok, CEO, Organic Motion. “The ability to study and refine one’s movements, while immersed in simulated scenarios, can ultimately improve efficiency, response time, and can even save lives. Additionally, the advanced real-time display allows for multiple units to be simultaneously connected, giving an entire regiment the ability to train together, even from different locations”
60 Minutes is unquestionably the best news television show, in my view, and one of my favorite television shows (24, Prison Break, greek, and Mad Men are the others). Short highlight clip from a full feature on this week’s show about brain reading technology follows.
