What the Internet Says.

The internet is awash with wonder and excitement, as well as the odd handy bit of tom-foolery to educate noobs. Here are a few things stumbled upon during my interweb travels.

Interesting take on input devices for human technologies.

Also, more excitingly, Google has announced it is approaching global problem solving in a TED Talks kind of format interestingly titled ‘Solve for X’. This is very exciting stuff given the clout Google has and I’m expecting tons of amazing content / ideas over the coming year. Sometimes to instigate true progress and get the ball of innovation rolling it takes a few individuals to ask very fundamental questions…and more importantly, act on them. Whilst on the subject of action, check out Behance’s ActionMethod.

In Google’s own words…

“Solve for X is a place to hear and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems. Radical in the sense that the solutions could help billions of people. Radical in the sense that the audaciousness of the proposals makes them sound like science fiction. And radical in the sense that there is some real technology breakthrough on the horizon to give us all hope that these ideas could really be brought to life”.
