Loop Ball

Loop Ball

This is Loop Ball, a racket ball game that keeps score itself and even records the speed of the players hits!!

Posted by How To Kill an Hour on Tuesday, 25 July 2017

Loop Ball is a smart way to play racquetball and it’s not a technique either, the ball is smart enabled! So the ball becomes the count and measure to count how many times the ball has been hit by each player and the distance between the two of them. The ball also becomes the referee, tracking accurate and safe metrics for the game and stores your games so you get the ability to share them with your friends!

Check out the video below to see more! (The product was once called Smartball)

MYNT Smart Tracker

MYNT is a tracking device with remote control for your smart phone, all in one small device. It was a big challenge to make MYNT with a stainless steel casing so it would be thin enough to fit in your wallet, plus adding a fun and useful remote control feature so you can wirelessly control the shutter of the camera on your phone — it makes taking better selfies easier, as well as group shots without having to ask a passing stranger to help you out with a picture. Remote control of the music on your smart phone, and control PowerPoint or Keynote presentations on your Mac, all this with just one small device, your MYNT.
– Technically advanced – 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) thin enough to fit in your wallet
– Beautifully designed – Polished stainless steel casing
– Powerful and useful – camera phone remote shutter, music control and Mac computer Keynote & Powerpoint remote control

How smart will AI become?

Andrew Ng has likened Artificial Intelligence to be as important to us as electricity in the years to come, as crazy as that sounds, our ancestors probably thought the same as electricity.

Our work life will be different and AI will be far more competitive than any human, it will require us to sharpen up our mental skills!

Whilst experts believe that we will still be required to do jobs that are very important and carry a lot of weight to it, just because robots/AI don’t have the same emotional attachment/engagement than that of a human. Whilst the challenge for us would be because we as humans like to seek confirmation and things that confirm what we think of ourselves. Thus holding us back. To over come this would require us to take the things w take for granted like thinking and listening to a new level.

Thus in time, our definition of “smart” (good grades) will begin to change. Smart will become the people who make the least amount of mistakes in life.

AI is incredible in that sense as we cannot do things quicker/recall information/produce alternative occurrences of an event than a super computer or any time of AI, it’s just too good.

A new definition of smart will promote a new way of thinking, it won’t be what you know, but it will be how good your skills are. Quantity of knowledge replaced by quality. Thus, in turn, forcing us to get better at cognitive and emotional skills. Adjusting after mistakes, learn emotional intelligence, letting go of the ego. Making us perceive reality a lot easier and not what we want it to be. Embracing what it means to be human, in turn, living alongside smart technology.
