I arrived in Cologne early this morning. The weather is amazing, with clear blue skies and temperatures hovering around 70 deg F. After the usual two hours sleep on the plane, I took a three-hour nap in the hotel. Usually, this is a sure-fire way to prolong jet-lag, but with the Leica Design Preview event later in the evening, sleep was a good thing. If the S2 VIP event was any indication, it'd be a late night. And in fact, it still is.
Before November 2009 little attention was paid to the silent threat cultivating inside of the U.S. Army. That all changed when a common U.S. Army officer, Major Nidal Hasan, killed 13 soldiers and injured 30 others during a shooting spree in the morning hours of November 5, 2009, at Fort Hood, Texas. The significance of insider threats has been reiterated with the shooting at the Washington, D.C., Navy Yard, and the intentional crashing of a Germanwings jet into the French Alps.
These events are significant in that they tragically ended in the death of innocent victims at the hands of those they placed trust in fellow workers and service providers. In addition to the human cost, we m

Object of Desire: 360Fly OCTOBER 19, 2015
Thanks to the proliferation of virtual reality headgear, theres been a surge of interest in immersive photography and video recording. The latest entrant into this hot field is 360fly, a company born from the robotics lab of Carnegie Mellon University. The companys first product is the eponymous 360fly, a small action camera that can capture a 240-degree (vertical) and 360-degree (horizontal) field of view via its fixed f/2.5 lens. The camera captures video at 1504x1504p30 in the H.264 format with a bit rate up to 20Mbps. Files are stored on the cameras 32GB of internal memory. The 360fly is dust- and water-resistant and can survive falls from up to 5 feet. Its operated through a single button with a three-color LED status light and vibration motor for feedback in the field. If you need a more robust interface, you can pair the camera to your mobile device via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for remote viewfinding. The app, which is available for both iOS and Android devices, also lets you view 240-degree videos, edit your footage and share it to social networks. The camera ships with a tilt mount with both a curved and a flat baseplate for mounting purposes. It weighs 0.3 pounds, so its slightly heavier than a GoPro Hero4 without its waterproof housing. At 2.4 inches in diameter, its just a tad smaller than your standard tennis ball. Youll enjoy a little morethan two hours of battery life.
