Link: “The Great American Road Trip Has Gone Electric”

“The road trip may be the perfect expression of American’s obsession with freedom. The ability to hop in a car and go wherever we want whenever we want has inspired a canon’s worth of books and films. It is the stuff of dreams, and very often of vacations.” Von Alex Davies  > Weiter bei Wired

“The residence and office, designed by Milan-based architect Jacopo Mascheroni of JM Architecture for a financial consultant and her family, consists of two sections: a rounded glass pavilion and a reinforced concrete structure that is partially inserted into the mountain.” > Weiter bei The Cool Hunter

Wired: “Facebook Is Ready for Your New Closeup. Are You?”

“Earlier this year, Daniel Ek, the CEO of the music service Spotify, was in a car with Mark Zuckerberg. Ek was visiting the Facebook founder in California while the two companies were working together on what eventually would be part of the massive announcement made by Zuckerberg today at his company’s F8 developer’s conference. It’s an initiative that will unleash new waves of applications on Facebook that will greatly enhance the power of the service — already a major part of people’s lives — by adding a limitless stream of lifestyle data that people can use to share and, ultimately, define themselves with a profile built on a stunning amount of personal information.”

Forbes: “Facebook’s Makeover Is A Little Bit Scary”

“At last year’s F8, Facebook announced the “like” button. One year later the ‘like’ button looks like the work of cave men. Starting today, Zuckerberg announced that you won’t be able to just ‘like’ a song, artist, movie, news story, exercise or recipe. You’ll listen to a song, buy concert tickets, watch a movie, read a news article, run in Golden Gate Park and cook a recipe. Your entire life– and all your social interactions– will now be broadcast on Facebook. In Facebook vernacular: ‘Your apps. Now with friends.’” Von Nicole Perlroth, Forbes > Weiter bei Forbes

Link: ‘Epidermal Electronics’ Paste Peelable Circuitry On Your Skin, Just Like A Temporary Tattoo”

“Someday soon, hospital patients won’t be hooked up to wires and monitors — instead, electronic patches will be temporarily tattooed onto their bodies. Doctors will be able to monitor their vital signs without poking and prodding, and patients wearing neck patches will even be able to communicate with robots, who will translate throat muscle movements into simple speech.” > Weiter bei PopSci

Video: “Control another person’s face in real-time”

“Given a photo of person A, we seek a photo of person B with similar pose and expression. Solving this problem enables a form of puppetry, in which one person appears to control the face of another. When deployed on a webcam-equipped computer, our approach enables a user to control another person’s face in real-time.” > Weiter bei Vimeo

“While not exactly art, Google Street View has also uncovered its fair share of pranksters and puzzles which deserve a mention in this list.” > Weiter bei Wired/Raw File
