Taking Technology to New Places
It seems the great promise of technology is how we can most creatively use it and apply. Its not enough to develop something in a vacuum--the innovation occurs when we uncover how a new technology can transform our practices. This new use for a camera struck me as a great example of a familiar technology tweaked to meet a specific and important need. In collaboration with the Harvard Innovation Lab, the Explorer was developed. This is "a softball-sized Wi-Fi-enabled throwable camera that can beam panoramic images to a first responder's tablet or phone." Moreover, it has "six cameras as well as an array of LED lights and can take 360-degree panoramas of a space every half second as it travels through the space." Read more about its many uses here!
