MindfulOfWhy #2

I’ve never been a big fan of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but I think everyone has to acknowledge the genius and effort he has put in to his new project: HitRecord.

The production company uses video, music, literature, photography, performance, screenwriting, graphic art, etc. from different artists around the world to make various projects and workings.

HitRecord is creative, innovative and cleverly uses today’s technology and social networking to its advantage, to unite a team of equally original people from around the world. These people collaborate online and send in their work or resources, with HitRecord getting the final directors cut. The results, well even if you don’t like the content, you’ll definitely appreciate the originality and artistic quality.

Here’s a preview of their first debut episode:

InnovNation #3 Neurowear – Are Bionic bodyparts here?

Neurowear: A review of the latest creepy but cool Japanese invention

Behold, the latest invention from Neurowear Japan: The NeuroCam

This breaking technology revolutionizes the process of capturing moments in your daily life..for the cost of wearing an iPhone above your ears on a headband.

Basically, through Neuro technology, this device will automatically record things you see that you personally find interesting with no effort on your behalf.

When you see something, the emotions triggered by that object, person, or activity will alter your brain waves. The Neurowear detects these changes and will automatically start recording, as well as rate it on a scale from 1 to 100 based on how interesting it is to you.

Although the product is still in its early stages, the developers plan to add on manual mode (which really defeats the purpose of the whole product), an “Effect Function” which will automatically overlay filters and visual effects on clips based on emotions, and upgrade the overall appearance and style of the gadget (A good idea).

#MindfulOfWhy 1:

They say there’s a huge difference between Generation Y and the Baby Boomers, and although this much is true, there’s plenty of stereotypes being thrown around that are typically bad human traits found in all generations.

Some call them spoilt, arrogant, overly rebellious, believe they deserve the best out of life, and  strongly influenced the #YOLO movement which is sweeping all the younger generations along with it.

Luckily due to their upbringing, their stubbornness and never-settle-for-less attitude is often aimed at rejecting the world as it is, since it strongly falls short of the world they envisioned as children. From a young age this generation was taught to dream, to believe they were going to be successful, idolizing superheroes and celebrities.

Their spoilt attitude and rebellious nature most likely stems from the high ideals they have for the world. Many from this generation will likely become activists in their own field, be it law, art, teacher, engineer, etc.

Even in primary school, high idealistic morality was imposed upon them..which I’m sure came as a shock to them when they got older and realized that the world doesn’t exactly follow the same rules. This was reflected in the various recent economic trends such as: Corporate social responsibility, the triple-bottom line, Sustainability and environmentally friendly practices, which all corporations had to get down on their knees and bow to.

We can expect that the majority of this generation simply want to do something about the moral injustice they see in this world, and if not, you can bet they’d rather be fence-sitters or tag-alongs, than join the side that is harming society.
