‘Magical’ Ambient Orb

One of the most interesting bits of our technological future is here, now. The Ambient Information Network powers embedded wireless applications for companies in consumer electronics, transportation, energy, health and wellness, and whitegoods. It has just announced a link-up with three tele health and care providers (QuietCare, Clinical Technology Advisors -for medication compliance – and FitSense’s ActiHealth network). Ambient’s vision is “to embed information in everyday objects, making the physical environment an interface to digital information. Colors glow to indicate energy pricing, a post-it-note shows you commute congestion, and on rainy days your umbrella lights up so you know to take it with you.” Press Release about health link-ups or Ambient’s website.
