What if the real YOU could be recognized through an archetype? What if that archetype could help you to better understand why you’re attracted towards a particular person or why you want to buy from certain brands. Wouldn’t understanding yourself in that way improve your life dramatically? If you’re indecisive, wouldn’t it be so much easier if you could find out about products, services, publications, and music that’s perfectly suited to your personality type?

The Moments app uses geo-location and push notifications to passively reconnect old photos with locations, helping you and those you care about to relive favorite memories.

We don’t remember days, months, or years. We remember moments. And for when we don’t, there’s now an app for that. Instead of posting, sharing, or checking-in; what if you were reminded? Moments is an app that reminds you of the memories that are most important to you. With the Moments App, when you pass by places that you have been to, Moments sends you a push notification. You can then relive and share your special moment with the friends and family who were with you at the time.

If you think 3D printing is just a fantasy, think again. Learn how 3D printing works; making modern printers able to print 3D models using additive techniques.

3D printing is commonly defined as the means of creating three dimensional solid objects from a digital model. 3D printing applies additive manufacturing techniques. Quite unlike the conventional machining process where material is removed through cutting or carving, the additive manufacturing used in 3D printing sets layers upon layers to create a three dimensional image.

iOnRoad, an augmented driving app, uses your smartphone’s native technologies to alert you of possible collisions on the road.

One of the most important things to driving a vehicle safely is to understand the traffic itself. If a car is slowing down and you are right behind it, you will have to apply brakes before you collide with it. Similarly, you have to watch out for unwanted lane shifting, since it can result in accidents in heavy traffic.

Although these are basic things about driving, they are still the most important ones. If you can keep safe distance from other traffic and avoid frequent lane changes, you will be safe. However, if you don’t pay attention to the road, you may not have enough time to apply brakes or steer away to avoid a collision. But you won’t have to stay focused if you’ve an app that warns you when you are risking a collision. iOnRoad, an app from an Israel-based company (that I met with on a recent trip to I went on to learn about Technology in Israel), is an award-winning augmented driving app that does just that.

No photographic memory? No worries! The Memoto lifelogging camera records every moment as you live it.

Modern psychologists have collected solid evidence reflecting that photographic memory is a myth. One can’t recall images from memory with perfect accuracy. Nevertheless, there’s no denying the fact that some people have incredibly accurate memory. Akira Harahuchi, for example, set a world record for recalling the first 83,431 decimal places of pi. There are many other examples of people with phenomenal memories – but none with a true photographic memory.

Although the notion of photographic memory is fiction, you can still recall your best moments, thanks to Memoto. Memoto is a tiny, automatic camera that continuously collects your memories through photo.
