Apple CarPlay

Gear  |  Apple
Apple has announced its new in-car iPhone integration system, CarPlay. It's designed to be an eyes-free system which allows users to safely use their phone for information, entertainment and communication while at the wheel. Apple claimed "CarPlay has been designed from the ground up to provide drivers with an incredible experience using their iPhone in the car.” In reality, that means that it's focussed around Siri, using voice commands to help navigate your music collections, dictate text messages and deal with incoming calls.
"Once iPhone is connected to a vehicle with CarPlay integration, Siri helps you easily access your contacts, make calls, return missed calls or listen to voicemails. When incoming messages or notifications arrive, Siri provides an eyes-free experience by responding to requests through voice commands, by reading drivers’ messages and letting them dictate responses or simply make a call.
CarPlay makes driving directions more intuitive by working with Maps to anticipate destinations based on recent trips via contacts, emails or texts, and provides routing instructions, traffic conditions and ETA. You can also simply ask Siri and receive spoken turn-by-turn directions, along with Maps, which will appear on your car’s built-in display."

Array
Gear  |  Apple


Imagine a communication protocol that didn't require text, photographs, or any other typical message content; a virtual smoke signal. This is a clever iPhone case that will revolutionize how you chat with your friends—using technology that's been around for hundreds of years. Dennis Be Bel's S.M.S.—or smoke messaging service—case heats and vaporizes lamp oil every time a simple button is pressed, sending a small puff of smoke wafting up into the air. And if conditions are right, the person you're trying to message will see that puff, or several, and then respond in a similar fashion. It's completely secure because it's up to you and the person you're communicating with to come up with a way to translate the smoke puffs into messages.  That is what artist and hacker Dennis de Bel is developing with his Smoke Messaging Service, or SMS, project.

Chicago-based company Gramovox has merged the old with the new in its Bluetooth Gramophone. It is a 3:4 scale replica of the 1920s R2 Magnavox horn speaker and packs a Bluetooth 3.0 module to allow wireless connection of mobile devices.

Our S-curve horn is a 3:4 scale reproduction of the 1920s R3 Magnavox horn. It is acoustically-optimized to brilliantly amplify music generated from the wood base. Our final horns will be manufactured out of steel and brass. For our prototype we used stereolithography (SLA) to 3D print the horn. After printing it, we painted/textured the horn black and silk-screened our logo. We chose a clean, classic typeface for a beautiful aesthetic complement."
