The Digital Move: American Institute of Physics App.
While reading through my email this morning, I noticed an announcement made by the American Institute of Physics that said they’re making articles available to download to iPhones and iPods. According to MarkLogic.com, one can download the application at http://www.apple.com/itunes/, and get support at http://scitation.aip.org/iphone.
I just shake my head at amazement with how technology continues to shrink and become more mobile. Information is literally on the move more than ever; with the increased and diverse uses of mobile devices to access information & store info, our mobile phones will soon be the main technology that one can’t live without.
On a side note, the AIP released an article about how small vibrations can be converted into energy. Now if we could use this technology to power mobile devices, think about the potential. Consider how much the average person moves around in one day, and if you could harness that energy–then again, do you know of any energetic children? Maybe we could literally make energy ourselves throughout the day to help power the digital things we use.
