Red Peak is a place where Design and Strategy meet to transform brands.

    Malta-based architect William Bondin envisions a world populated by living sculptures that interact with their surroundings.

    Morphs are metal sculptures decked out with electronics that constantly assess light intensity and water presence so as to make the best decisions about their paths.

    Mind melding to become a reality

    Scientists at Duke University have created the first brain-to-brain interface, allowing two rats located thousands of miles apart to cooperate on a shared task.

    The first of its kind, Dr. Miguel Nicolelis and his team engineered a system for the rats to communicate via electrodes implanted in their brains. Nicolelis hopes that the technology could aid future rehabilitation techniques for both physical and language restoration.

    A SHORT HISTORY OF THE GIF

    As part of the Moving the Still: The Online GIF Festival & Exhibition taking place at Miami Art Week 2012, sponsors Smart Water and Tumblr partnered with LEGS Media to create a short and sweet history of the internet’s beloved GIF.  Using a mix of mediums to explain the birth of another, the film chronicles the most enduring platform on the world wide webs.  Enjoy the clip and maybe even learn a little.

    GLASSES-FREE 3D TV (now say it five times fast)
Researchers at the MIT Media Lab have developed a 3D viewing screen that no longer requires goofy movie theatre goggles or any kind of eye wear at all. 
The team admits that fully holographic screens with the ability to be manipulated in real-time are likely the future, however this LCD monitor is able to refresh rapidly (faster than the human eye) to create a similar and much more cost-effective experience. 
Hopefully this innovation means we can ditch the dorky glasses at the IMAX soon. Check out the specs below:

    Researchers in Israel have created a completely mind controlled robot.  Using an fMRI machine, a student volunteer was able to dictate the movements of a robot over 1800 miles away.  The system centers on use of electroencephalogram, or EEG technology, which reads the brain’s electrical fluctuations.  Imagined future uses for the technology have included military operation, alternate solutions for the disabled, and gaming applications.

    Toyota is creating a system wherein cars can assess the driver’s mood and customize the car’s reactive system as a result. With a sensor that plots 238 points on your face to detect facial expressions, the car knows when your mood has shifted and you are more accident-prone. http://bit.ly/LlCdj6
