Samsung’s solar solutions

first_imgSamsung’s flagship village also provides internet access, helping to bridge the digital divide that disadvantages underdeveloped communitiesSamsung is playing its part in helping poorer communities access healthcare and education; on Tuesday 1 April the company handed over its first solar-powered village to the Malibongwe Ridge community.Samsung’s flagship village also provides internet access, helping to bridge the digital divide that disadvantages underdeveloped communities.“The United Nations says being online is now seen as fundamental to human development, and access to the internet may soon become a basic human right, like access to water,” says George Ferreira, vice-president and chief operations officer at Samsung Electronics Africa.“Our challenge was to look at what was needed versus what was available and devise a plan that connected the two.”On average, more than 25% of Africans don’t have ready access to electricity in their homes; this limits connectivity and access to education and healthcare, which are central to the success of isolated rural and peri-urban communities.The solar-powered digital village will provide access to these necessary services.HEALTH, EDUCATION AND INTERNET ACCESSThe digital village is a project in line with Samsung’s commitment to researching and investing in green technologiesBuilt in a refurbished 12 metre- long shipping container, the village’s mobile classroom is designed for use in remote areas and is easily transportable.The classroom is fitted with Samsung notebooks and netbooks, an interactive whiteboard or e-board, and Samsung Galaxy tablets; all powered by solar panels attached to the roof.The village’s solar-powered healthcare centre provides basic services such as eye, ear, blood and dental screening, mother and child healthcare, and treatments on site.The healthcare container is mobile, taking its services to surrounding communities to eliminate travel expenses for residents already struggling to make ends meet. The centre also disseminates information on basic preventative healthcare.Samsung has partnered with non-profit Right to Care, which delivers prevention, care and treatment services; the organisation will encourage male circumcision as a preventative healthcare measure.Right to Care’s Dr Mashudu Munyai said, “We are excited to work with Samsung on this uplifting and inspiring project.”The healthcare centre also has a Tele-Medical Centre; telemedicine relies on modern communication technologies to provide healthcare workers in far-flung areas with access to updated diagnostic methods and medical processes.The Tele-Medical Centre will work in conjunction with Samsung’s Tele-Medical app, which will guide nurses on site through the necessary processes to ensure all relevant information is captured and that diagnoses are accurate.“Today, we are seeing an innovation we’ve worked hard on developing come to life, and it is very exciting,” says Ferreira. “Good health is at the centre of one’s wellbeing and impacts society at a fundamental level.“It affects a child’s ability to learn at full potential, and adults’ ability to provide for their families. This is why we have complemented our strong focus on education with a focus on quality healthcare.”RENEWABLE AND CLEAN SOLAR ENEGRYWhen the village’s solar panels are under pressure, there is a standby solar-powered generator to provide additional electricity. The generators can also provide affordable and eco-friendly power to schools, homes and community centres.The digital village is a project in line with Samsung’s commitment to researching and investing in green technologies. It is also in line with a Memorandum of Understanding signed with the Gauteng Department of Economic Development (DED).“We are encouraged by the work Samsung is doing in the green technology space,” says Albert Chanee, head of the DED.“This type of out-of-the-box thinking is what will make a measurable and meaningful difference in people’s lives and, ultimately, change the world. The digital village aligns with government’s vision of finding alternative solutions to African problems, and we are proud to be a part of it.”last_img read more

The Internet Of Wild Things: Introducing The First Smart Vibrator

first_img12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Related Posts lauren orsini 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnoutcenter_img Before Vibease, the world’s first smart vibrator had been on crowd-funding site Indiegogo for 24 hours, it had already earned double its $15,000 funding goal. But to spokesperson Hermione Way, it’s no surprise. As a woman in a long distance relationship (she’s in San Francisco, he’s in London), she can’t wait to use it herself. “It’s Skype sex 2.0,” she said. “You can actually have a physical long distance relationship with this.”Remote control vibrators do already exist. But it’s hard to find one with a wireless range further than 30 inches away (that would be the upscale Lelo Lyla). They’ve got nothing on Vibease, which can be controlled from a smartphone anywhere in the world, provided the vibrator is no more than ten feet from the user’s own smartphone. Thanks to the Vibease’s bluetooth properties, it’s actually being marketed on two points. There’s the long distance vibration, of course, but also the ability for women to sync up the toy for solo play with audiobooks on their smart phones. Audiobooks with names like 50 Shades of Rose, just so there’s no confusion as to what they’re about. Way said the toy will switch up its vibration depending on how juicy the book is getting. “They did a lot of research into the female orgasm, and found out that women are far more likely to fantasize,” said Way. “Men are more visual creatures. And so the audio is far more important to women for getting excited.”Way chose to represent Vibease as a spokesperson after meeting with the company’s founder, Dema Tio. She said she gets asked to promote a lot of products, but it’s clear to see why this one’s unique. And as you might expect from Way’s party girl reputation, she certainly had no qualms about tying her name to a sex toy.A native Singaporean who travels for work, founder Tio longed for a toy he could use with his wife over long distances. His wife helped him design Vibease.But along the way, Tio has faced a unique problem that could only endanger a sex toy that is connected to the Internet of Things. Just like hackers who would hijack smart homes, there are those who dream to hack this smart vibrator. “Lots of people are emailing me and joking about what they’d do if they hacked the device,” said Way. “We believe this device is not hackable. But even if somebody managed to get in, the worst consequence would be lots of women having orgasms in unusual places.”Way said the beta will be limited to the technology already listed, but the possibilities associated with a sex toy connected to the Internet of Things are endless. Will they ever release the source code, so users can program their own erotic audiobooks? And just imagine what programmers could do with an API! Watch the video to learn more about what’s on the horizon for Vibease: Tags:#Internet of Things#Vibease 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe Applast_img read more
