GOOGLE'S NEW SMART CONTACT LENS

GOOGLE MAY HAVE MASTERED THE SMART CONTACT LENS

There has been rumours circulating that Google – still licking its wounds after the recent relative failure of Google Glass – are still wading into the wearable eye tech, with talk of a smart contact lens due for release some time in 2019.

However, recent rumblings have revealed that they’re apparently already investigating packaging for the device, which would indicate that the tech may be available much sooner than previously thought.

Now, before we get ahead of ourselves and think that this is going to be a teeny, tiny version of the Google Glass that we can actually fit under our eyelids, this smart contact lens is initially only being used to detect and measure glucose levels in diabetes sufferers and inform or alert the wearer accordingly. With these incredible technological advances one must ask, how long will it really be before the lens does actually become the kind of futuristic tech we all dream it will be?

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
