Evoluce Two And Microsoft Surface SDK: Match Made In Heaven

Evoluce has long been known to deliver outstanding multimedia products, so it should be no surprise that the Evoluce Two controls Microsoft Surface SDK applications with Kinect.

With Microsoft Kinect, Evoluce can support up to four users simultaneously, allowing them to work on the beautiful 46″ multi-touch LCD screen. The multimedia table is capable of recognizing 60 simultaneous inputs and is the optimal way to collaborate with photos, videos, documents, and maps.

Electromagnetic Sheet Powers Up And Networks Devices

The National Institute of Information and Communications Technology showed an efficient wireless power transmission system, demonstrated at the Wireless Japan 2011 conference. The system works as a 2D communications device and requires the user to place a gadget on the flat board.

The board then generates electromagnetic waves towards the gadget, rather than having an even distribution throughout the board. The underlying concept behind the system uses a 2.4GHz high frequency signal to capture the electromagnetic waves where the gadget is placed.

How To Use Social Media, Effectively

Jason Hiner from ZDNet wrote a compelling article on how we should use different social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. He argues that we should treat different social platforms much like we would treat our own kids. Rather than parenting each child in the exact same way, Hiner notes that it is often best to treat each kid a bit differently and adhere to their individual strengths and weaknesses. Same goes for Social, according to him. Social Media is powerful, it’s growing, it’s now. Rather than cross-posting in Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Foursquare, Hiner thinks it is best to post in such a way that is optimal for each social platform.

Google Cloud Connect – Collaborate Seamlessly

Google just released Google Cloud Connect, a software plug-in that moves Office files to Google Docs. With the plugin you can save the files to Google Docs and have them available all the time no matter where you are, reducing the confusion of which version is the most recent. It also gives you the ability to collaborate on documents. For example, your colleagues in Miami could edit the file’s table of content while the creative director, who works from Dallas Texas adjust formating. This reduces the need to send documents back and forth as email attachments making collaboration seamlessly despite not working from the same location.
