Google introduces ‘time machine’ feature in Street View | theguardian.com
After the interesting effect when Google is showing different information about Crimea if you come from a computer in Russia than from Ukraine, this is even more interesting.
If the nation state is dependent on one thing to maintain its existence it is the power over it’s history. Even democratic countries are picking their historical facts and teach children the “right” story in schools. Yes, you could argue that Internet already have had an disruptive impact on that. I doubt it… At least not yet. But I bet this will.
If you take away the nation states power over it’s history (and let Google run it) we have a completely different game! I wonder if the board of Google have pondered deep enough on the statement “Don’t be evil”.
Geeks seems to think that being objectively true stands over good and evil… It is much more complicated than that!

The Rise of the Data Natives
Monica Rogati, recode.net

Some­time at the start of the decade, YouTube was abuzz with viral videos of small chil­dren — yet to speak, read or write — “pinch­ing” mag­a­zine arti­cles with their fin­gers as they would an iPad. These chil­dren were her­ald­ed as mem­bers of…

voLumen

3D volumetric light display by Maximilian Mali can display animated 3D forms using POV method - video embedded below:

voLumen is a volumetric three dimensional LED display device. Its purpose is to project volumetric animations onto eyes of a human spectator …

… By quickly rotating thousands of LEDs around a common axis using a precise microprocessor-control-logic magic becomes a simple principle. The persistance of vision of the human eye enables the impression of a solid volumetric object. Using a speacially developed PC-Conversion software, animations and contents can be easily generated from 3D-Modelling/CAD software with just the press of a button! voLumen can be connected to a PC via USB to transfer the data to the 16GBytes of internal high-speed solid-state memory, which allows enough space for 36 minutes of smooth volumetric colourized 3D playback!
