Digital Innovation Roundup: November 4-7

Posted 12 November 2013 12:00 AM by Richard Kim

Did you catch last week's tech and trends? We did. And we're happy to share our findings. Here's everything you need to know about the latest and greatest in the digital world. 

 Read about Google’s latest pilot project, Toyota’s FV2 concept car, how Knock can unlock computers and a bracelet for women called Memi. 

  1. Google hits the streets with outdoor kiosks 

The Google search app has so many features that people can use outdoors, so why not bring the service to the consumer as they are waiting for a bus? Google smart screens providing up to date information about local areas, travel times and weather have been installed across 160 bus shelters in London. The Google kiosks provide real-time information that is tailored to the location and surrounding of each installment. Currently the project is simply running a pilot program that will continue until early December, but it could potentially roll out to other cities across the world if it proves to be successful. 

  2. Toyota unveils FV2 concept car 

Toyota is currently working on a concept car that will be designed to look like a 4-wheeled Segway and should be able to change colors based on the driver’s mood. The FV2 is expected to be a hydrogen-powered vehicle that is able to refuel in three minutes and travel up to 500 kilometers. In addition, the car’s windshield will feature an augmented reality display that will show traffic conditions and safety information for the user. The car manufacturer plans to reveal the FV2 at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show on November 23rd

  3. Knock securely unlocks your Mac 

 Created by both William Henderson and Jon Schlossberg, Knock is a new iOS application that allows users to unlock their Mac computers simply by knocking on a paired iPhone. Consumers will never have to unlock their Mac computers using the traditional method of typing in a password, nor do they need to pick up an iPhone to gain access to their Mac. Using Bluetooth technology, a user’s phone will automatically detect when it is near a paired computer and can sign in to a Mac once the user knocks on the phone two times. 

  4. Memi smart bracelet for women 

 Similar to Pebble, Memi is a wearable smart device that will inform the user of missed calls, text messages and calendar alerts without having to check the phone. Memi works simply by connecting its Bluetooth technology to a custom app on the user’s iPhone. One key difference is that Memi is a wearable device that was designed to appeal mainly to women. Compared to all the smartwatches that are currently in the market, Memi was made to look fashionable and discreet when worn.
