Google’s Microcamera Contact Lens Is Coming to an Eyeball Near You

After Google Glass, the next “moon shot” Google product might very well be a contact lens with a built-in micro-camera.

The tech giant has filed a patent application on a smart lens with sensors that could detect light, pattern of colors, objects and faces.

Those wearing the contacts would command the device through a sophisticated system of unique blinking patterns, as explained by the blog Patent Bold.

Google’s latest breakthrough could help blind people see certain moving objects around them, according to Patent Bolt.

“For example, a blind person wearing Google’s contact lens with a built-in camera may be walking on a sidewalk and approaching an intersection. The analysis component of the contact lens can process the raw image data of the camera to determine … that there is a car approaching the intersection.”

The lens would also have wireless capabilities to be hooked up to smartphones.

The U.S. Is an Energy Superpower

A new item by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) confirms what we’ve been reporting for a while now : the U.S. is an energy superpower. The EIA predicts that in 2013, the U.S. will be the world’s top producer of petroleum and natural gas hydrocarbons, surpassing Russia and Saudi Arabia, as the graph below shows:

Not every hydrocarbon is equal—the U.S. produces about the same amount of natural gas as it does petroleum, at least in terms of the BTUs of energy those fuels can produce. Saudi Arabia, by contrast, produces nearly all petroleum—and with oil running north of $100 a barrel and tradable around the world, Saudi Arabia’s oil is more valuable than America’s gas, which can’t easily be exported.

But there’s no denying how astounding—and how real—America’s energy revolution has been, as the EIA indicates:

Google’s Scientific Approach to Work-Life Balance (and Much More)

More than 65 years ago in Massachusetts, doctors began a longitudinal study that would transform our understanding of heart disease. The Framingham Heart Study , which started with more than 5,000 people and continues to this day, has become a data source for not just heart disease, but also for insights about weight loss (adjusting your social network helps people lose weight), genetics (inheritance patterns), and even happiness (living within a mile of a happy friend has a 25% chance of making you happier).

Upon reading about the study, I wondered if the idea of such long-term research could be attempted in another field that touches all of us: work. After more than a decade in People Operations, I believe that the experience of work can be — should be — so much better. We all have our opinions and case studies, but there is precious little scientific certainty around…

NSA is spreading spying malware and its official!

Originally posted on StorageServers:

National Security Agency as a part of its Prism internet surveillance and in the name of national security has been spreading spying malware since 2007.

A news website called “The Internet” published this news in its website on Wednesday. It also disclosed that this piece of news was being delivered direct from the mouth of tainted NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

It is a known fact that in June 2013, Edward Snowden disclosed to the world that US populace was being spied.

In August 2013, American government confirmed this news and added that…
