Light can be directed with simple angle modification with a flexible and pivoting head. The lamp also has a high sensitivity dimmer, and features three levels of brightness. The dimmer allows for easy one-touch adjustment. Many of these features are not available on standard lamps, yet are exceptionally helpful on a desk lamp, especially in an office setting.
“We are creating a platform that’s something of a gateway drug to meaningful civic action,” said Polisner. “We are thinking of a social platform that’s a people’s utility as opposed to something where we have to maximise profit and sell people’s data.”

Considering Alexa has made its way into just about every Internet-connected product, it was only a matter of time before the digital butler arrived in smart glasses. The Vuzix Blade augmented reality glasses will support Alexa so that wearers can ask for things like the weather and directions. The Vuzix Blade’s display also sits more prominently in the wearer’s field of view than Google Glass and looks much more crisp and colorful. If developers create compelling apps that blend Alexa’s capabilities and augmented reality, the Blade AR glasses could have some promising potential.
I was on vacation in France in 2002 (I was 7 or 8 back then) and I visited a local toy store multiple times because they had really cool stuff. But then, one day I saw a cylinder-shaped oil and water emulsion toy with spiral stairs inside that you can put upside down all the time and then you see little drops of blue oil rolling down in a spiral. It was so satisfying to watch, even better than a lava lamp! They had them in blue or pink. I wanted the blue one, but my mom didn’t want to buy it for me. For years I was searching for it as a child but I never found it in another store, not even on my next visit to France. I was so in love with that thing…but one year ago at the end of 2016, I visited a store in my country that I’ve known for years, and there I found them! I was so happy to finally see them after years of searching that I almost cried, they even had one in purple! —s4ef321550
