Orkin Rolltop Computer

I saw this last fall at the AMATYC Conference, and I’m just getting around to posting it now (how sad is that?).  Thanks to Fred for showing us this one! This is just a design vision – what could computing be like in the future? But I would say that it’s a vision that totally “leaves the box” and it’s really a beautiful solution to the multiple uses issue.

Unbelievable: Augmented Reality from GE

That’s really all I have to say. I don’t know what it has to do with math (although I’m beginning to imagine the possibilities), but right now, this just blows my mind! It’s called “Augmented Reality” and it was built as part of a GE project about SmartGrid technologies. The SmartGrid website by itself is amazing, but this Augmented Reality just takes the cake. Here’s the video I recorded right from my webcam LIVE. I think I even found the sun (or the Jing icon) in there! Do you have any idea how fast the future is coming now?

Rubik’s Cube + Google Search Engine = SearchCube

This clever search engine is run using the power of Google search. Choose your search words and then watch SearchCube build a cube of images for the sites it finds. If you’re looking for a particular type of site – tutorial, informational, or a classroom setting, the image really can save quite a bit of time in trolling sites that aren’t quite what you’re looking for. I have found the SearchCube method to be especially good for searching for math tutorials or games, which have a different look to them than informational websites. Note: SearchCube is no longer an active website, but it was fun while it lasted. Possibly Related Posts: Write an Operating System for Your Brain The Four Processors: A Neogeneralist Problem?
