Battery-free e-ink screen grabs screenshots from smartphones


Uses for NFC Display Grabber...

Are you kidding?!? This means FINALLY an end to the collection of stupid and wasteful business cards or the sweaty fisted 'bump'-ing ten times because it just didn't work right the first time.

I'm interested to make a smooth metal-backed business card storage that is kept in the pocket with good old trouser heat used to power up the screen so you can exchange digits with boffins at conventions and not need to whip out the Phablet! Give it a nice lil capacitor and solar coating, yer covered for when you haven't got sufficient calories in your pants.

In the states, more and more stores provide a handheld scanner or phone App to tally the cart, so why not offer price drops on a per-person basis 'at the tag'. I can even see stadium-like animations across the shelving guiding you to your favorite products when the aisles are otherwise bereft of passers-by.

Anyone hiring a biz-dev pro? Gimmie a shout!

Setting application data free


Tools Exist!

Have a look at Peepel.com It is an extensible collaborative framework incorporating Db with sophisticated logic and distributed processing capacity.

The paradigm is clearly shifting. A few monolithic minds may still hold forth that they are the only people capable of analyzing data, but as the "medium is the message" makes its way into academia it becomes "Data is more powerful than the study". Increasingly data is being repurposed and taken into consideration in ways unimagined by the data collector, much to our advantage.

What is being called "ERP" is actually now capable of wholistic simulations of previously intangible phenomenon.

I'm completely excited by the interoperability of data between entities and the novel conclusions now possible.

Freedom sounds too open ended. Yes it is free, and yes it is being 'trapped' more often by more people. Many to many relationships with children of children is the new data paradigm in our integrated world and I hope it ties so many factors together that the 'business world' finally realizes that peace is the answer, pollution is poor design, profit means more than money.

Our world can't wait any longer. We are the solution.

One last thing from Joseph Cambell :

To make the world a better place, teach people how to live in it.

I believe that Bucky Fuller will be seen by future generations as the first critical thinker of a new age of understanding. All hail data freedom.
