Using the power of engineering and brilliant inventions to save lives!!! Great times collab-ing with Bill and Melinda Gates! You should check out the Gates Annual Letter here: http://b-gat.es/2lhhtmJ

Pre-order a paper microscope here- https://www.foldscope.com/order

Read the published paper on the paper centrifuge, its cool- http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2016…

MUSIC-

7:54– Special song written just for me- Lincoln Hoppe, http://lincolnhoppe.com/

Summary: I met with Manu Prakash from Stanford to talk about 2 of his labs’ inventions the Foldscope and the Paperfuge. Combined these cost only 68 cents and they can be used to diagnose Malaria. Both of these are examples not only of simple, brilliant design, but of how engineering is used to make a positive dent in the world.

Road Safety / The Virtual Crash Billboard / Serviplan France

By: Serviceplan France

Originally published on Apr 11, 2017

LA SECURITE ROUTIERE D’ILE DE FRANCE AND SERVICEPLAN GIVE PEDESTRIANS QUITE A SHOCK… FOR THEIR OWN PROTECTION

Serviceplan held an unprecedented field operation on 22nd March in Paris to raise awareness about the dangers of being a careless pedestrian, which results in 4,500 victims each year in Ile-de-France.

The idea behind the operation was to display a specially designed interactive digital billboard near a busy pelican crossing. Equipped with a movement detector, speaker, and camera, the smart billboard made the sound of squealing tyres whenever a pedestrian attempted to cross the road while the “red man” was displayed.

The frightened faces of the disobedient pedestrians were projected directly onto the billboard. Their faces were then featured on the road safety billboards, and their photographs are shown alongside the caption: “Don’t look death in the face. Check the lights and cross safely”.

The digital video and posters, created under real-life conditions, will be used as part of the forthcoming “Quinzaine Régionale des Usagers Vulnérables” (15-28 May 2017) (train station billboards, Facebook campaign, etc.)
