Anthony Yuen’s iVeneration expects this virtual reality model to resonate with the eco-conscious youth 🧒 looking to honor their loved ones 💔. In Hong Kong, there’s not only limited space, but it can cost up to $130,000 💰 to even store the ashes ⚱ of loved ones. “The dead are taking so much more space than those who are still alive, as those buried use that piece of land for many years,” said Yuen, as he manipulated his mobile telephone 📱 to correctly position a candle 🕯 in front of a virtual headstone.
This VR experience allows people to ‘bury’ their loved ones in more pleasant locations, like parks 🏞 or national landmarks. Respect for the elderly 👴 and deceased is an integral part of the Confucian tradition, so the desire for the experience is warranted. People can adorn their loved one’s digital headstones with things like candles, flowers 💐, religious items 📿, and photos of their loved ones. Employee Alex Lee has this to say about the experience: “Everyone is aware the lack of land is a problem in Hong Kong and the government has been encouraging green burial. For me, you don’t have to go to a thing to remember those passed away, it’s all in your heart. 💓 ”

Speaking of being in a major metropolitan city like New York, we are moving towards the era of sensors. The internet of things where we are connected in a P2P gigabit fabric. Cities will be smart. There will be 100 billion sensors implemented worldwide by 2020. See this image of a smart city being monitored from #ces2018
#IndustryFocus – Flour Mill
#UWTLevelControl needed to find a solution for a Flour Mill whereby dust was settling within their silos and coating the sensor surface. The Flour mill was using non-contact Acoustic sensors and because they didn’t trust the laser sensors, they were measuring the level for each silo by hand, each day.
UWT recommended the NB4200, which is impervious to humidity, dust and temperature variation.

You may hardly notice me even though I’ve been brightening your roads for over a century. I can detect air quality and traffic conditions. The Internet of Things has given me a key role in the development of today’s smart cities, and Lam Research has been playing an integral part in enabling my development. What am I?
Our extreme environment high precision #sensors and displacement measuring systems provide accurate non-contact measurement of conductive surface motion in hostile environments including high temperature, low temperature and high pressure. Check out the video link in bio for more info.
Progress doesn't need to look pretty; usually it doesn't. My wiring and oscilloscope shots are no exception. ⚡🤢
Next episode of the podcast comes out tonight. I will be talking about digital communications and sensors. DONT WORRY if you're not an engineer. I will be explaining alot of this on a very basic level for everyone to understand, even children, regardless of background -hope you guys like my analogy spitting skills-
I've been struggling the past few days getting my signal conditioners to communicate over the I2C bus. Stupid slaves didn't acknowledge me, the master, speaking to them. Lazy too, they fall asleep and won't wake up. Okay that sounds really bad without context but slave and master are tech terms in digital communications. I have some fun explaining these terms and more in the podcast tonight.
As always, keep on the #PursuitOfExcellence and #QuestForKnowledge

Imagine footwear that notifies loved ones or medical services the minute the person wearing them takes a tumble. It's only about six months off the market, according to E-Vone, a French start-up; manufacturing shoes embedded with a slew of sensors. Within the sole of the shoe is a GPS system so you can always find where the person is as well as where the person has fallen. The shoes also have a pressure system that activates an alarm system every time it senses the shoe has been put on. Shoes like this could very well save an elderly persons life!
