I will start with an offline reading request. The book has a very funny and inspiring view of our digital world. you don´t have to be a nerd to get to her way of understanding bits and bytes she picks you up at any level of knowlage.
Artificial Unintelligence. How Computers Misunderstand the World. By Meredith Broussard.
A guide to understanding the inner workings and outer limits of technology and why we should never assume that computers always get it right.
Next is a short review video from the oculus s the new VR headset from tested.
It is nice to see that the Oculus team will go for more accessibility and less external sensors. The new version comes down to a beefed up version of the Oculus Go.
Next video is from the GDC(Game Developers Conference) in San Francisco. The Conference is this year dedicated to alternative game controllers. It is really funny to watch the hell couch.
I found on Adafruit a new interesting wearable and I linked you a twitter feed from the creator Helen Leigh.
And here we have it! Say hi to the first full prototype of the minimu glove: a gesture based instrument that kids sew, wire, code & play themselves. Developed for @mimu_gloves and @imogenheap, available through @pimoroni later this summer⚡️🎼🔨🔥 pic.twitter.com/04f7O0IM6X— Helen Leigh⚡️ (@helenleigh) July 20, 2018
Politically this week my eyes were on Khazasthan. Everything starts with the unexpected Resigning of the former president. It seems that his daughter would get his succession but that comes with problems mentioned here. And last week this happened and there where protests and people got arrested for having blue balloons.
Thats it for this week. Thanks for your patience.
