Just returned from the LIFT Conference 2008 in Geneva . It was pleasant and open experience across the board (organizing team, speakers, facilities, connectivity, attendants, food, relaxed atmosphere, good party). Thanks to the whole organisation for making this happen ! Professional, innovative, passionate and high quality. For me, an example and inspiration for Mobile Monday Amsterdam
Below my first highlight of this conference, Kevin Warwick. One of the first 'cyborgs' (Steve Mann/MIT is another one with a different angle: Augmented Reality and Wearable Computing) with direct brain interfaces. Can you control machines all over the world using your brain and internet ? Can you use telepathy ? Can you communicate non-verbally with your loved ones while being in different places ? Mind-blowing video with resonates strongly with the current research projects within DARPA/Pentagon using Silent Messaging techniques.
