Google’s Project Soli brings a new level of interactivity to our world, further enmeshing our digital lives and enriching our interactions with the devices around us.
Soli is a new sensing technology that uses miniature radar to detect touchless gesture interactions.
At only 8mm x 10mm, the chip is small enough to be embedded in smart watches, phones, and all of the typical smart devices we have grown to love.
The key to Soli interactions is the Virtual Tools, which are gestures that mimic familiar interactions with physical tools.
See how it works in this video:

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

Facebook isn’t really free – you pay for it with your identity.
In an announcement at the COP22 UN climate change conference this week, French president Francois Hollande stated that all of the country’s coal-fired power plants will be shuttered by 2023. The move is part of an effort to achieve carbon neutrality in France by 2050. This shouldn’t be too hard to achieve, considering that the country already derives 75 percent of its power from nuclear energy. (Whether or not that’s an improvement is, of course, a hot topic of debate within the environmental community.)
I was feeling the pain of our separation and division today.
This short film was just the right medicine I needed.
Onwards and upwards!

Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.
Today, these trends have reached their extreme – but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.

Where did the iconic image of the witch come from?
Is it relevant in todays society?
How can women reclaim their sacred identity?
This is an example of what raw film dailies (footage shot every day) look like. It will feel strange to watch them if you’ve never seen this before. The scene will feel long and boring. The are several reasons for this. First and foremost it’s because there are no cuts. The editing is not pointing our attention towards anything in particular. That’s because there is no editing! Secondly, we are seeing just one performance. In this scene alone the director filmed more this scene more than 12 times! Just think, the editor is putting together the best instances of all 12 of these performances.
