MotorMood for socially aware driving

ab43feece71365df937ed12b2192eaff_originalHere is cool idea: use a light-up smiley face that affixes to a vehicle’s rear window to communicate simple yet important messages to other drivers, like saying ‘thank you’.

Now you can take that and other socially clever practices into your daily driving. Simply join the pledge at this kick-starter project, dubbed MotorMood, and voila! …start spreading smiley face in your community.

GE Scientists Develop Battery-Free, Multi-Detection Wireless Sensors

GE Global Research, the technology development arm of the General Electric Company, today announced a battery-free, multi-detection radio-frequency identification (RFID) sensing platform that could enable a wide range of low cost wireless sensing products in healthcare, security, food packaging, water treatment and pollution prevention. GE’s unique RFID sensors are built on traditional RFID tags.

This “first-of-its-kind” sensing platform, in which a single sensor can provide a highly selective response to multiple chemicals under variable conditions, operates without a battery. GE’s sensor technology overcomes limitations in today’s sensors such as inadequate response selectivity and the need for an on-board power source. Without a battery, new sensors can be designed to be smaller than a penny and manufactured at very low cost.
