iPhone + Internet + Camera = New Way To Remotely Fly An Airplane

Wed November 16, 2011

The legacy Steve Jobs has left us in the guise of the iPhone continues to amaze us in the types of applications and solutions it inspires. When technology converges, incredible solutions are born. And when that technology involves the powerful Internet and the elegant iPhone user interface, a novel, simple and elegant solution arises.

In this case, researchers at Boeing and MIT have designed a controller for a small UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) using the iPhone. The solution is elegantly simple: tilt the phone in the direction you want the plane to travel or raise it to make the plane fly higher, with the view from a camera on the plane transmitted back to your phone’s screen. Or tap a point on a map on the screen, and have the plane automatically fly to the designated spot. Of course, this is all accomplished remotely through the Internet, with the plane flying above a field on the MIT campus in Cambridge and the person controlling it in Seattle, some 2,500 miles away.

This control system is so intuitive that an inexperienced person learns to fly the plane after only a few minutes of instruction. The system can be adapted to fly any airplane, commercial or military.

Photographers, Here’s How To Get Creative

Wed November 16, 2011

Creativity, it turns out, has to do with using the right side of our brain, the hemisphere that is visual. To recap, the left hemisphere is verbal, logical, language-based, and rational. The right hemisphere, by contrast, is visual and “sees.”

The stages of creative thinking are apparently quite predictable and involves 4 steps:

1. Saturation: We use our left hemisphere to define the creative challenge. It may involve reading a photography book on various techniques, etc.

2. Incubation: Just “knowing” does not automatically mean that we can do it. This is when we need to walk away from the problem that our left hemisphere can’t solve by itself. Do something physical and shift to the right hemisphere by letting our brain mull over all the information we have read.

3. Illumination: The Ah-ha moments spontaneously come when we least expect it. An unrelated activity (exercising, taking a shower, driving or even sleeping) often triggers the solution to our problem.

4. Verification: The left hemisphere reasserts itself to test and complete the creative work, whether in a laboratory, on a canvas, translated into words or as a beautiful picture.
