Time for some opera.

It’s scary, it’s unstoppable, and it can happen to anyone.

The whole “dumping ice on your head” thing got you irritated?

AT LEAST IT GOT YOUR ATTENTION.

Now do something. NOW please.

Okay, now what commercial is this song used in?

This is so important

It really is disgusting and pathetic, isn’t it?

SCiO

This is a bit future-shock …

A small consumer-level molecular scanner lets you analyze the objects around you for relevant information, from food calories or quality, medicine, nature etc … This could be the start of the Internet of Everything

The Kickstarter was launched yesterday and made it’s $200,000 goal within 24 hours - the potential for this tech is huge. Watch the video embedded below to see the potential:

Smartphones made it easy to research facts, capture images, and navigate street maps, but they haven’t brought us closer to the physical environment in which we live – until now. 

Meet SCiO. It is the world’s first affordable molecular sensor that fits in the palm of your hand. SCiO is a tiny spectrometer and allows you to get instant relevant information about the chemical make-up of just about anything around you, sent directly to your smartphone.

Out of the box, when you get your SCiO, you’ll be able to analyze food, plants, and medications.

For example, you can:

  • Get nutritional facts about different kinds of food: salad dressings, sauces, fruits, cheeses, and much more.
  • See how ripe an Avocado is, through the peel!
  • Find out the quality of your cooking oil.
  • Know the well being of your plants.
  • Analyze soil or hydroponic solutions.
  • Authenticate medications or supplements.
  • Upload and tag the spectrum of any material on Earth to our database. Even yourself !

You can find out more about the product at it’s Kickstarter page here

EDIT: There seems to be a lot of skepticism about the product (I’m not a scientist, but the idea is certainly compelling). There have been calls at Reddit calling this out, yet the company has posted addressing the concerns here

TRICORDERS ARE REAL, PEOPLE!!!

Epic song, rich mood, diverse instruments.

Not ironically, this song just makes me happy.
