Two Presenters are Better than One

I recently spent time taking part in a show where the presenters were delivering an academic presentation in a fun and engaging way. When I stopped to think about what it was they did that made the presentation so impactful, I realized it had less to do with the content and more to do with the tag-team effort of the two presenters. You see, at Ethos3, we work with presenters on more than just the creation of their content. We have created a proven method to take even the least exciting presentat...

Sphero's BB-8 Rolled into Robot Fame. Their RVR Prototypes Open Up a Much Wider Universe of Possibilities.

Sphero's RVR prototypes expand on the functionality that made their BB-8 bot a household name. Late one night in 2015, the Sphero team gathered in their Boulder, Colorado, offices to watch Star Wars Celebration Live, a 30-hour live stream hyping the first new Star Wars movie to come out in 10 years. The team knew something other fans didn't: this would be fans' first look at BB-8, a lovable new droid character. Disney had licensed their team to make it, but no one had spoken publicly about it...

The Use of Behavioral Science Has Moved Beyond Marketing

Marketers have been using behavioral economics to understand and exploit the irrationality of consumers long before the Golden Age of Advertising. By employing simple marketing tactics such as “buy now, pay later,” inflated value pricing, or decoy alternatives, marketers have been able to effectively steer or in some cases, manipulate customers to buy products or […]

What If We’re Trying To Find The Theory Of Everything In The Wrong Places?

“The ascension to the tenth level of intellectual heaven would be if we find the question to which the universe is the answer, and the nature of that question in and of itself explains why it was possible to describe it in so many different ways.” It’s as though physics has been turned inside out. It now appears that the answers already surround us. It’s the question we don’t know. – The New Yorker

The M-Wall is probably the first wall with a user experience

The M-Wall combines technology, beauty, and a user experience. Taking wall paneling and turning them into products/experiences, the M-Wall actually makes the wall a series of services, rather than a blank canvas. The soft, rounded paneling looks incredibly friendly, and hosts everything from clocks, thermostats, televisions, cabinets, lighting, speakers, and soft-boards, helping the wall transition from space to form.The M-Wall conceptually isn’t completely new. Kitchens have for a long time com...

What are Our Writing Tools Doing To Writing? (And Reading?)

Writing is so influenced by the machines we write with. The process of creating something is shaped by the tools. Ergo, what we write is also shaped? And how about readers? With constant demands on their attention, with screens and email and notifications, the process of reading has changed. What’s a writer to do? – The New Yorker

How Your Body And Your Brain Work Together To Perceive The World

If you pay attention to your heart and bodily responses, they can tell you how you are feeling, and allow you to share in the emotions of others. Interoception can enhance the depth of our own emotions, emotionally bind us to those around us, and guide our intuitive instincts. We are now learning just how much the way we think and feel is shaped by this dynamic interaction between body and brain. – Aeon

Here’s A Good Primer On The Challenges (And Accomplishments So Far) Of Artificial Intelligence

In his masterpiece, “The Lady of Shalott”, Alfred Tennyson describes a character from the Arthurian legend who is cursed to remain in a tower, looking at the world only through a mirror, and weaving the “mirror’s magic sights” into her web. AI today is, it seems, in its Lady of Shalott stage, trying to weave four-dimensional reality into a two-dimensional web by looking into the dim, distorting, and often deceptive mirror of data. – 3 Quarks Daily
