“Sirius Lee (his real name) has few concerns over the safety of the crude-looking, 40-socket USB charger he purchased for HK$500 from the mainland. The contraption sits in a mesh of cables at a mall near the main Occupy Central protest camp in Admiralty. Over the past week, over 2,000 people have entrusted their phones and tablets to 22-year-old Lee and his team of 30 friends, who man the “Recharge Corner” in shifts.”
From IoT and the future of capitalism, to animal experimentation and freedom of choice plus Stalinist attitudes towards audience participation. Fully great evening listening to Slavoj Žižek at the Royal Festival Hall.
"A scientist has created a budget device that can control a computer by tracking eye movement after stumbling on a £9.95 web camera being sold with a games console – a huge saving from the £20,000 that a similar apparatus used for medical research would have cost at the time."
Incredible for those with restricted mobility but I wonder how it will impact eye tracking in web usability research.
