Volkswagen texting while driving saftey ad hijacks cinemagoer's phones | Mail Online

by sbrothier
It is a shocking demonstration of just how distracting a text message can be. Hong Kong cinemagoers were shown an ad with someone driving through a forest. However, midway through, they were sent a text message - and when they checked their handset, the on screen car careered of the road and crashed, leaving them shocked and stunned.

This Is How You Get People To Stop Texting While Driving - Digg

In a very smart PSA run in Hong Kong, Volkswagen sent text messages to people while they watched footage of a driver who gets in an accident while texting.

Driverless cars and Red Barchettas: Did Rush predict a Google-controlled future? - The Big Event

by sbrothier
Peart wrote the lyrics in 1981, and appears to correctly predict the inventions of Google Earth and Street View (“the eyes”). This will become even more prescient in the next decade or two, as the products continue their inevitable evolution toward watching our every move in real time. (Initially for consumer data-tracking purposes, but later co-opted by law enforcement.)

The Trick That Makes Google's Self-Driving Cars Work - Alexis C. Madrigal - The Atlantic

by sbrothier
Google's self-driving cars can tour you around the streets of Mountain View, California.  I know this. I rode in one this week. I saw the car's human operator take his hands from the wheel and the computer assume control. "Autodriving," said a woman's voice, and just like that, the car was operating autonomously, changing lanes, obeying traffic lights, monitoring cyclists and pedestrians, making lefts. Even the way the car accelerated out of turns felt right. 

The Robot Car of Tomorrow May Just Be Programmed to Hit You | Autopia | WIRED

by sbrothier & 1 other
In future autonomous cars, crash-avoidance features alone won’t be enough. Sometimes an accident will be unavoidable as a matter of physics, for myriad reasons–such as insufficient time to press the brakes, technology errors, misaligned sensors, bad weather, and just pure bad luck. Therefore, robot cars will also need to have crash-optimization strategies.

Cars, Trikes, and More – Street View – Google Maps

by sbrothier (via)
When we first started Street View as an experimental project, we packed several computers into the back of an SUV, stuck cameras, lasers, and a GPS device on top, and drove around collecting our first imagery. Since Street View launched for five U.S. cities in May 2007, we've expanded our 360-degree panoramic views to include locations on all seven continents. We then moved to a van for a brief period, before switching to a fleet of cars that would allow us to scale the project throughout the US and around the world. We went from a rack of computers to one small computer per car, and then set to work refining our camera system to capture higher-resolution panoramic views. After several iterations of the car and camera technology, the latest car has 15 lenses taking 360 degrees of photos. It also has motion sensors to track its position, a hard drive to store data, a small computer running the system, and lasers to capture 3D data to determine distances within the Street View imagery.

Menno Aden - Room Portraits

by sbrothier & 3 others
Through challenging camera angles Menno Aden abstracts most familiar actual living environments and public interiors into flattened two-dimensional scale models. A camera that the artist installed on the ceiling of various rooms takes pictures downwards of the interiors. The resulting images lay out space in symmetrical compositions that look like assemblages stripped off any kind of objectivity. The views into private homes and secret retreats bring up associations of the ubiquitous observation camera. The notion of surveillance is systematically played out by the artist to hint at society’s voyeuristic urge that popular culture has made mainstream. Miriam Nöske

The Selvedge Yard & Natural Born World Shakers are about all the things that interest me– a menswear product, presentation & branding guy with a passion for people, places, things & ideas of enduring heritage, quality, authenticity & character. But I’m not all old school all the time– I appreciate innovation & technology in all things. Today’s innovators give us tomorrow’s timeless classics.

Packard plant | Video Library | Detroit Free Press

Once a symbol of industrial might and now ground zero for rustbelt blight, the Packard plant in Detroit has become an urban explorers' delight, graffiti artists' canvas, scrappers' cash in a city beleaguered by decay. BRIAN KAUFMAN/Detroit Free Press

Volkswagen. Le côté obscur. | Greenpeace

by sbrothier
Notre planète – la Terre – est en danger. Volkswagen s’oppose à deux lois européennes stratégiques pour la protection du climat : la revalorisation de l’objectif de réduction des émissions, et l’adoption de normes plus strictes en matière de performance énergétique des véhicules. Sans ces mesures, la Terre connaîtra le même sort que la planète Aldérande : elle sera détruite par l’Étoile Noire. Mais tout n’est pas perdu. Nous sentons que la force accompagne Volkswagen.

Un véhicule sans conducteur a achevé hier un périple le menant de son lieu de conception à Milan (en Italie), jusqu'à l'exposition universelle de Shanghai (en Chine). Parti le 20 juillet, ce van électrique a parcouru 13 000 kilomètres en 3 mois et 9 jours, sans intervention humaine et sans consommer de carburant.

PingMag - The Tokyo-based magazine about “Design and Making Things” » Archive » Masaru Tatsuki’s Decotora Photo Op

by sbrothier
On a dark and rainy night, bright and blinding lights approach a vacant lot, off a Japanese highway - just if Shibuya’s blinking neon signs decided to move themselves past you… However, it’s some proud and lonely trucker halting for a rest! Welcome to the world of Decotora, short for decorated trucks!
