A few months ago I went to a seminar on reaching zero emission. Sadly, that may never come true as we are highly dependent on fossil fuel. But that doesn’t mean that we do not have to pitch in when it comes to lowering our own carbon footprint.
That’s why I chose to sell my car and invest some of that money into a more planet-friendly solution, an electric scooter.
Why an electric scooter
There are many reasons to why I wanted to go with the two-wheeled option for my daily commute, instead of buying an electric car or any other electric ride for that matter.
Sure, I did have a hard time making up my mind about what to pick. But eventually, it came down to a few things that made the scale tip in favor of an electric powered scooter.
Electric scooters are far superior to other electric rides when it comes to performance and durability.
There are models for people of all ages, adults, seniors and there are even electric scooters for kids.
I was not interested in getting an electric bike for a number of reasons.
The comfort of riding one was much better, and it seemed like the most versatile option out there when it comes to handling various terrain.
Plenty of models with good feedback to choose from within my budget which for the record was £1500.
I wanted comfort so getting something with a firm and well-padded seat was just what I needed. I did look at a few electric skateboards. But sitting down on those would probably not be my cup of tea when it comes to comfort.
Apart from all those things above I felt that the technique used in these have come further at this time than any of the other personal transportation devices out there.
My new ride
After getting a headache reading through a bunch of reviews and information on which type of transportation might be the best solution for my needs. I finally found something of interest.
Since I was swapping out my car I felt like investing at least a 10th of what I got from the sale into a new electric scooter. Doing this I force myself into buying something more expensive which would hopefully be able to handle my everyday tasks.
I finally ended up looking into 3 different scooters. One was the Qiewa Q1, the second one was Speedway mini4 pro, and the last one was the Xiaomi m365.
Reading up on all these models quickly got me realizing that the Xiaomi scooter wouldn’t make the cut. So now I was only down to two different models. To make it easy for me I read up on the distance and speed on both models and how well they held true to what the specifics promise. The Q1 had much better comfort and overall seemed to be the better choice out of the two.
Checking up on its performance and various features got me sold and I eventually ordered the Qiewa Q1 after.
How it is to ride
It might have taken me a few weeks before I actually threw myself out there and made the order. But boy, do I regret not doing this earlier. My daily commute from home to the university takes even less time with the scooter compared to taking the car.
You know how much traffic it is around 4-5 PM when everyone just wants to get home from work. Well, I don’t have to be bothered with that anymore. I ride past the traffic jams, I slow down and just head on over to the bike lane if that route is faster. And I do all of this while comfortably seated. It handles rough roads like nothing and I have a hard time not taking it with me wherever I want to go.
The combination with a padded seat, inflatable tires, and a double suspension system make riding the Q1 very smooth. It goes up to 40 mph and has a maximum driving distance per charge of 40 miles. However, I have yet only reached about 34 mph and that is fast enough for someone of my weight. Also, I would estimate that I can get around 25-30 miles on a single charge was taken into account my weight and riding style.
Do I recommend others to do the same
I highly urge you to consider switching over to an electric vehicle of some sort. Whether it be a car or any other sort of electric transportation doesn’t matter. What matters is the fact that you lower your own air pollution. The fact that this new way of transport is much more fun is just a side perk. Or was it the other way around!
Yeah, saving the planet has and will probably never be this fun. Swoosh through traffic without having to worry about getting stuck in it. I ride past mopeds that cannot reach the same speed as me on my way to work every day.
How could you want a moped when an electric scooter is cheaper to buy, more cost-effective in the long run, it is smaller so you can easily park it in the hallway just like a regular bicycle.
Overall I highly recommend anyone reading this to consider buying an electric scooter. You get hours of fun out of it and you cut the time and costs off your daily commute in half.
We first saw designs of the headset, then called Project Morpheus, in 2014 and have since then seen investment in the virtual reality industry grow much more expansive.
Now, the $399 VR headset is ready for primetime,but is it right for you? While the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive have certainly been written about quite a bit, the cost of the systems hasn’t made them too accessible to the average consumer.
Those VR experiences retail for about $2,000,meanwhile, you can get a PS VR, PS4, and all the fixings for around $800.
There are already around 40 million PS4’sin the wild so it’s a lot less of a headache for gamers to get started with VR on PlayStation.
Another thing that helps the headset hit that$399 price point is that the Move controllers and the Playstation camera aren’t actuallyincluded.
They aren’t too expensive and a lot of PlayStationgamers may already have them but be sure you don’t forget to pick them up if you decideyou’re interested in actually turning the system on.
The design is pretty bold.
It’s a bit more space-age than other headsets.
The bright, multi-colored LEDs and visor-style display are much more reminiscent of a star wars helmet than the bulky face computer.
It’s just as nerdy but it seems to take itself a bit less serious which is nice.
Build-wise, PS VR is pretty ambitious.
While other systems just strap the display to your face, the PS VR balances it in front of your eyes.
While this will probably help you avoid weird-looking pressure marks on your face, it does make it a bit harder to sell yourself out from the world around you.
At times, the build quality leaves a bit to be desired.
I occasionally felt like I was on the verge of breaking the headset while I was resizing the headband on it.
Sony wanted the PlayStation VR to be as approachable as possible to consumers in terms of price and that meant relying on some older tech that they had previously released.
The PlayStation Move controllers seem to do a surprisingly good job with tracking despite the fact that they’re over 6 years old.
The PS camera, on the other hand, has some trouble adjusting to the mobility of VR despite the fact that it’s recently been updated.
I managed to lose tracking of my controller quite a bit throughout gameplay which really was a bummer.
Oculus Touch controllers suffer from this same problem of occlusion where your body blocks the signal between the controller and the camera, but with just one sensor, this happened way more.
Hardware-aside one of the major reasons to be psyched about PS VR is the partnerships.
We already know that Star Wars Battlefront will be incorporating a VR-centric mode exclusive to PlayStation and games like Resident Evil and Batman is launching only on the PS VR.
With VR coming to PlayStation expect to see some more popular franchises testing out the early platform.
The device has quite a few titles available immediately at launch with more on the way.
It’s easy to highlight its shortcomings but the PS VR really is an impressive system for the price.
The headset itself delivers quality experiences and it’s honestly crazy how much performance it gets from the $300 PS4.
With the PlayStation Pro on the way in November,I’m sure experiences will only grow more complex and visual in the future.
Convincing someone to buy a first-generationVR headset has been a pretty difficult sell, largely because they’ve all been really expensive, bulky and haven’t had much content.
The PS VR is at least much cheaper, there are still some challenges that need to be solved but Sony has created the most accessible high-powered VR system we’ve seen to date and if you’re a PlayStation loyalist there are a lot of cool reasons to dive in and make this your first big investment in VR.

Hey what’s up guys! Welcome to another article, where you and I work together to help you organize different aspects of your life! In today’s show, I’m gonna review for you the brand spanking new Bose QuietComfort 35 Bluetooth wireless headphones! So what you get in the box is basically a USB charging cable, a three and a half mm jack if you choose to connect via wire, an awesome leather carrying pouch, and in that pouch, of course, you get some of the best noise cancelling headphones on the market right now! These are the newest model from Bose.
The initial Bose QuietComfort 35 Noise reduction headphones review
They are of course foldable.
These are ultra lightweight.
Under 240 grams.
That’s amazing! You can get them in either silver or black.
And this is what they look like with themon.
On the cups themselves, you’ll find a volumeup, volume down, and play/pause button.
The earmuffs on the ear cups are soft and plush.
These headphones cause no listening fatiguewhatsoever.
Bose claims these will last up to 20 hourson a single charge, and I’m my testing, I’m actually closer to 23 hours! That’s pretty amazing! If you decide to go with the wired option,the battery is going to last roughly 40 hours.
Charging via the micro USB cable takes justover 2 hours.
Pairing the earphones to your smartphone couldn’tbe any easier.
Just turn on your Bluetooth on your smartphonedevice.
Power on the headphones with the Bluetoothoption.
And that’s it! You’re connected! Super simple! When you’re connected, there’s an audiblereminder that tells you how much charge you have left inside the earphones.
The headband is made from some nice leather on top, and microsuede in the interior.
This is super soft and plush for your head.
As far as the sound quality goes, my previous pair of headphones were some high end Sennheiser Momentum M2, those were the wired version.
And although they sounded quite good, they were a bit on the heavy side and of course they had that wire! Now these Bose sound just as good, they have noise-cancelling built-in, and honestly, this is the best noise cancelling of any headphones I’ve ever heard on the market.
They’re super lightweight and the battery literally lasts almost for ever! What more could you ask from a pair of headphones? The bass levels are pretty good, although the bass heads might want just a little more bass.
But honestly, the mids and highs are outstandingand there’s still a good amount of bass in there! What’s nice is regardless of how loud youplay them, the bass always stays clear and tight.
You can hear the vocals amazingly well andregardless of any genre of music you like, you’re really going to enjoy these.
I personally like EDM, hip-hop and trap musicand these are fantastic.
If you remember, in my last review, I also purchased the Jay Bird Freedom wireless earbuds, and although those sounded pretty good, these guys are real full-sized headphones and really can’t be beat.
So in summary, I have to say that the main features of these Bose QC35 headphones are the sound quality, lightweight construction,super comfortable to wear, battery life lasts up to 20 hours on a single charge, and they have the added bonus of noise cancelling.
What the active noise cancelling does basicallyis it blocks all the sounds that are coming from outside: construction, talking, cars,buses.
It blocks everything out so it allows you to concentrate on listening to music! Trust me on this one guys, you will not find a better pair of headphones under 500$.
For the most up to date pricing on these headphones:
Back to the Future is a science fiction – film from director Robert Zemeckis, The screenplay by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale.
The film tells the story of the student Marty McFly who accidentally via time travel device in 1955 and there changed the past of his parents, which means that its existence is threatened. Marty must now try to restore the original past and return to 1985.
The teenager Marty McFly lives in 1985 in his hometown of Hill Valley together with his siblings with his parents Lorraine and George. His father George is an uncertain man, suppressed by his superiors Biff.
Marty meets with the fellow scientist Dr. Brown, who gave him a built-in a sports car time machine showing off. The necessary for time travel energy provides a with plutonium -powered nuclear reactor. Dr. Brown had deceived Libyan terrorists around the plutonium. These have now noticed the fraud and are shooting Dr. Brown. When they also turn against Marty, he flees and accidentally activates the time machine, which brings him into the year 1955. Dr. Brown has previously set the time machine for demonstration purposes on the 5th of November, 1955, because on that day he had the right idea for the invention of the time machine.
In the past, Marty meets his father George as well as Biff, who also suppressed his father in 1955. Marty rescues George from an approaching car and is approached by himself. Because of the intervention of Marty, he is now taken to Georges’ place in the house of his mother Lorraine, where she takes care of him and falls in love with him. Marty’s existence is also in danger.
Marty is looking for Dr. Brown of the year 1955 and convinces him that he comes from the future and has come with a time machine that he has produced. Dr. Brown agrees to help Marty return to 1985. The plutonium of the time machine is consumed and can not be obtained in 1955. Marty happens to know that the next Saturday lightning will take in the City Council of Hill Valley. The energy of this lightning is to be used to enable the return journey in 1985 without plutonium.
Before his return, however, Marty still has to make his parents fall in love. This project turns out to be difficult because George is a shy outsider. From Lorraine, Marty learns that she has a predilection for strong men who can protect a woman.
Marty is therefore invited by Lorraine to a dance performance of the school but plans to bother her to give George the opportunity to save her from him and stand as a hero. The plan fails, since Biff appears, Marty backward and Lorraine bothered on his part. As originally agreed, George comes to save Lorraine. At first, he is astonished that Lorraine is not pushed by Marty as planned. Lorraine is thrilled and falls in love with George. Marty’s existence is assured by her first kiss during the dance ball.
Marty hands a sealed letter to Dr. Brown to warn him before his shooting in 1985. Brown refuses to read him and tears him out of fear of consequences “for the space-time continuum.”
Dr. Brown succeeds in directing the energy of the flash into the time machine at the right moment, allowing Marty to return to 1985. The destination is now, however, instead’Twin’ “Lone Pine Mall” because Marty had knocked over one of the two established pines of Farmers Peabody on arrival in 1955th There, thanks to the arbitrarily adjustable timeline, a few minutes earlier, Marty can not prevent the terrorists from shooting at Dr. Brown. Dr. Brown, who had meanwhile stuck Marty’s letter and had read it, now survives the attack thanks to a shudder-proof vest. He makes a 30-year-old future in the future to explore the time.
Through Marty’s influence on the past, his father in 1985 brought him to a self-confident and fruitful book author, and Biff became a submissive autodelete service provider.
Finally, Dr. Brown appears with the advanced time machine from the future and asks Marty and his girlfriend to go there together with him, as they have to help their children.
The Time Machine
Model used in the film De Lorean DMC-12. The time machine was designed in various variations and frequently modified. First, they were designed in the form of a laser device, which should be built in a room. Subsequently, a walk-in refrigerator, designed as a time machine, was designed. Since those responsible but feared children could use this as an incentive to lock himself in refrigerators, they rejected this idea. Finally, it was decided to make the time machine mobile, which, according to the developers is logical, since they are so always taken Which would facilitate a return. Therefore, it stipulated that the time machine in a DeLorean DMC-12 should be installed. One reason for this was the joke that a DeLorean would be held by the villagers for an alien spaceship if he were in the past.
From ILM that had Zemeckis entrusted with the implementation of special effects, he received various designs, such as the so-called space-time continuum, which should constitute the transition from a time in space to another, might look like. However, since he was not satisfied with any of these designs, he decided to present the temporal transition soberly and without such effects. Zemeckis wanted to focus on the technical aspects of time travel. To this end, he and Gale worked the “flux capacitor” (in the original flux capacitor, thus actually “flow capacitor”) in the script a. This invention Doc Browns should make the time travel possible. On the operation of the time machine, the scriptwriters of left HG Wells ‘ The Time Machine inspired. So they decided that the time machine can not travel at the same through time and space should, as they appeared this impossible.
Three vehicles were used during the shooting. One was with a Porsche modified -Motor and outdoor scenes in which a moving car was needed, used. Another had an extended interior for scenes where the DeLorean was entered or abandoned. The third vehicle had been seen up so that one could film with the camera in the interior. It had no exterior outfits and was only used for scenes within DeLoreans. When it came out in 1989, “Back to the Future II” suggested we would be bouncing off walls and racing cars while floating above the ground, all with the ease of a Hoverboard.
Something that has “come true” or at least is on the brink of coming true. Who haven’t read a bunch of hoverboard reviews lately in order to try and get something that won’t be so futuristic that it blows up beneath you.
In order to give each vehicle the appearance of a time machine and to create an interesting vehicle for the time travel, the film figures were built in addition to aircraft parts in the waste or in the usual electronics stores. Among them were numerous lighting effects and circuits, the other at the appropriate times of action and should be based. After the release of the film thanked John DeLorean Zemeckis for the use of the designed cars and that Zemeckis allegedly obtained his dreams alive. Next, he offered to hire the staff who had designed the time machine as designers.
If you are like many people, you probably visit plenty of websites in any given month.You most likely have to create a password for the websites too. Many are these sites are easy to use and will not harm you.This is because they do not ask for personal info. With these types of sties, password security is not an issue. However for websites where you go to bank or shop, password security should be a high priority.
More and more people are using the internet on a daily basis.They like to shop online, bank online and enjoy various forms of entertainment online.Most websites want personal information as a way to identify users. This is usually done in the form of providing an email address and a user name.If this is all that you have to supply, then there is not a problem.This is because most people have throwaway email addresses that are not linked to their real identity. However, if you are going to a website to shop, then you will have to provide real information such as credit card information, your name, address and sometimes date of birth.
When you have to give up this much of your personal information, ensure that it cannot get into the wrong hands. This is because there are plenty of unscrupulous people who lurk around waiting for the best time to hack your account and steal your identity to do more harm.The bad thing is that some people surf the web so much that they have to create numerous passwords. To make the process much easier some people will have only one password for tons of websites.This is the wrong thing to do because once a hacker figures out the password on one website, He/she can easily find the other passwords too.
Don’t make it so easy for hackers to get your password. Consider getting a password manager such as Password Manager Pro. Like Admanager Plus, it can handle different websites at once. Basically, you control all of your passwords by using one main password.Utilize the software and log in to your accounts by using one main password that can access all of your accounts.Hackers hate this type of software.But, you won’t be too stressed out about it because things will not be as difficult for you.Your accounts will still have a separate password.
In conclusion, it is hard to protect online passwords.If money is involved, a hacker will be close by. However, with the right password manager, you won’t have to deal with this problem.The password manager will cut down a lot of work for you and protect your password at the same time.This is the best way to keep your information secure at all times.It is another way to stop hacker dead in their tracks.
The probability is, everyone has used them. Legos, the little interlocking building blocks are aspect of our customs for over 50 years. Which began as a technique in making little houses and funky shaped cars have fast become a business of epic proportions. Legos are all around us.
As a result, the common block building units are also complex systems boasting the Star Wars universe, Bionicle, Indiana Jones and dozens of other movie and game tie-ins. Currently, legos also come in the traditional size expected for children as well as youngsters, more convenient bricks for toddlers. There are Lego online video games and even short online movies displaying the little block-shaped people.
All these progressive designs step back to one enterprise, one man. The authentic Lego company was started off in 1938 by Ole Kirk Christiansen, a Danish carpenter who expert in wooden toys. At present, it is still run by the Christiansen family. The interlocking blocks that most of the people associate as Legos were designed and presented to the public in 1958 by Godtfred Kirk Christiansen, son of Ole.
Under the scenarios, Godtfred brought the company ahead in the late 1960s, seeing that while customary Legos are not acceptable for toddlers, little children would cherish and take advantage developmentally from the Lego Learning thoughts. Lego Duplo was brought out, boasting well sized graspable pieces that interlocked in identically as their small sized counterparts.
It was eventually all on this same occasion that the Lego universe has grown into real life, with the introduction of the first Lego-land theme park in Billund, Denmark. There would inevitably be four theme parks, the most popular one opening in 2002 in Deutschland in Gunzburg, Germany.
All the way through 1970s Lego playsets grew to be more complicated, incorporating Lego people and motorized parts. These enhancements made Legos all the more favorite, letting for a bigger level of real looking play. In 1979 A third Christiansen, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, was named CEO of Lego Group.
Under Kjeld’s leadership through the 1980s, Lego sets designed themes or templates so that more precise role playing games would be persuaded. The Lego space set was especially popular and paved the way for a multitude of Lego themes in the course of the years. The blooming computer system age of the 1980s added to the Lego arsenal of play. Computer technology was properly designed into Legos, ending in the first Lego robots.
The decade of the 1990s saw a greater distance developments in the computer technology in Legos, combined with the deeper specialization of theme sets. On the first time, sets were being specially offered to girls, with excellent colors and themes intended to feed the customary family fantasy. The Lego Belville line included nuclear family topics, princesses, horses and other action widespread to the little girl visualization.
In 1998 Lego energized its work in robotic toys, and once again in 2006 with the establish of the refreshed Mindstorms Robot. 1998 was also when Lego and Lucas-film LTD developed to the economy the latest Star Wars Legos. The 2000s have seen greater numbers of movie and game based Legos than before.
Legos have existed for years and may be here for decades more.
The Lego space set was especially attractive and paved the way for a multitude of Lego themes throughout the years. Giant Building Blocks Toys There are Lego video tutorial games and even quick online movies offering the small block-shaped people. The Lego space set was especially attractive and paved the way for a multitude of Lego themes through the years.
Teachers can see many benefits by having technology integration in the classroom. Students that are of any age have the ability to use tech equipment as a research tool or to communicate. They can be in the active role of participation instead of being a recipient of a lecture or assignment. Tech is a great option for use in any school setting.
Several advantages may be performed by adding computer in to a common school in a school. The easiest way for just about any computer to be utilized is to ensure it’s enjoyment for the students. This will result in improved diamond that’s a substantial gain for increased learning. Specific kinds of gear are accustomed to produce training an even more involved experience.
Studying with tech will help people to uncover just took the ribbon off better approaches to figure out how studying will be a mess additionally fascinating. The capacity of youthful people to be inquisitive about new things will help when there is a need to push studying. An alternate profit for adolescent youngsters is the capacity to have stronger aptitudes use at any scenarios where issue explaining is vital.
Something to remember about introducing computer to a college space is so it must be tailored as there’s no most readily useful solution. There’s an appealing facet of visible artwork that is highly recommended for any kind of new equipment. That is the utilization of an electronic digital show in place of a straightforward projector. That is one method to telecommute for subject trips.
Computers in use at schools can be set up with headphones for listen to recorded instruction. There are stories and lessons that can be viewed on a computer aided by audio. This is a great way to help people and students understand what they are learning. The best thing is the ability to track the long-term and short-term progress of students.
The utilization of laptops in a school setting is subject to the programming that is accessible. There are numerous sorts of intelligent educating supports that might be consolidated into any lesson plan. This will permit scholar support to advancement at their own particular level. Something else to acknowledge is the enhancement that will be the accomplishment of imparted encounters. Different exercises and be carried out as one gathering to support studying.
Something educators may do with pcs which are linked to the Net is discover web sites which have some involved elements. This will contain seeing a brief movie show to enjoying an understanding game. The must have involved understanding is essential for building understanding skills. That is required for pupils to be employed with understanding products that may be provided via the Internet.
Legitimate innovation for technology integration in the classroom gives numerous employments. An educator can make tests that a person can see on their own workstation screen. Something else to do is make presentations that give an approach to incorporate intuitive components for review other studying material. Lessons may be discovered online to download and fuse into day by day lesson plans.
Technology is a broad encompassing concept. It pertains to the collection of both knowledge and procedures for the purpose of achieving a goal or performing a certain function. Technology has been, is, and will be playing a dramatic role throughout the history of mankind. Futuristic technology promises a future that is significantly better than what the present offers.
Since technologies involve the usage, modification, and creation of tools, machinery, contraptions, and systems, it is considered as a concentration of procedures. Technologies are said to be created due to its ability to satisfy an objective or serve a role. Such functions encompass a wide scope, which may include the improvement of a present way of resolving problems; modifying systems or machines; and solving problems themselves. Intelligent beings, like humans, can adapt, leverage, manipulate and limit the various phenomena with the use of technology.Humans have been propelled from the crude world of their ancestors, into existence which takes the best possible advantage of the natural phenomenon. Documents of technological use of prehistoric humans suggest that the ability to create tools, the discovery of fire, the invention of the wheel, and the use of shelter and clothing were the earliest technological revolutions. Such were so impressive that it impacted daily life and sealed the technologically-dependent fate of the modern human being.
The shifts from old into new technologies were dominated by more advanced ways of performing tasks. From just using technology to maximize survival, human beings now use it for trivial matters, examples of which are self-satisfying of pleasures and entertainment. Highlighted innovations during this period included changes in construction, explosive-based weaponry, the telephone and telegraph, sewer and septic systems, farm equipment, and the printing press, to name a few.At present, the advanced technologies that are being enjoyed encompass a wide range of fields. Examples of such are the medical, military, entertainment, music, sports, education and engineering fields. Such advancements in the fields mentioned have undergone drastic changes in a relatively short amount of time, spanning from several decades to just a few months.
Comparing the observed progression of developments in technology creation and discovery, it appears that current rates of innovations are increasingly becoming much faster than in the past. A good example of such a phenomenon is the obsolescence of personal computer components just within a couple of years.
The technologies of tomorrow that are now starting to be developed may have a huge impact on the way humans live. Artificial intelligence that can learn from its mistakes and to acquire new knowledge is currently being tested. Biological crop technologies allow for the growing of organism body parts, specifically human organs and limbs. Breakthroughs have also been accomplished in teleportation, where scientists have now been able to teleport quantum bits.
Human lives have been greatly positively influenced by technology ever since the dawn of civilization. Unfortunately, despite the positive effects, negative impacts like global warming come with it as well. The ultimate goal of humanity to create a much more human-centered, just, humane, peaceful and safe global society has the greatest potential to be achieved with the help of futuristic technology.
Artificial Intelligence – Definition is as follows “the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.” The films which based on AI started On April 24th with Wally Pfister’s Transcendence – a film in which the scope of artificial intelligence is presented in an exciting way.
Transcendence is not only very exciting but with Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany, Kate Mara and Cillian Murphy even studded cast. A feast for friends powerful stories and outstanding acting performances.
Announcing the launch of the science fiction film Transcendence Cinefacts has selected eleven of the best works on the subject of artificial intelligence, which are impressive in the highest degree. Have fun with it!.
1. Transcendence Director: Wally Pfister
In Transcendence Johnny Depp Dr. Will Caster, leading researcher plays in the field of artificial intelligence. Together with his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall), he has succeeded to create computer systems that function like brains, but still competent. If perpetrated by technology skeptics stop Will is seriously injured. Evelyn but it manages to combine Wills brain to the computer system. An experiment with far-reaching consequences … The Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister ( Inception ) has with his directorial debut Transcendence created a milestone of artificial intelligence film that is not only exciting but also deals with scientific and philosophical aspects of enormous consequences.
2. Ghost in the Shell Director: Mamoru Oshii
The film Ghost in the Shell is regarded as classic science fiction anime and contributed to the growing international popularity of anime in it. The story takes place in 2029, humans and cyborgs live in peaceful coexistence. Almost all people have changed their bodies with artificial implants. Only the human brain can not be synthetically manufactured. The danger now of a super-hacker who calls himself “Puppet Master.” He can hack into the brains. The person then acts like a mindless puppet. The film is put in response to the crisis in the Japanese economy and politics in the early 1990s. Also, the artificial intelligence movie had an impact on other movies like Matrix and I, Robot.
Laws: 1. A robot may not harm or allow harm to people through inaction. 2. A robot must execute any command given by a human being, but only if this the first law is not broken. 3. A robot must protect its existence unless it is against the first or second law.
The Asimovian robot laws form the basis of SciFi Action agent I, Robot with Will Smith in the lead role. But what if an artificial superintelligence own logic which would have the enslavement of mankind to follow? And what if a robot exists, the emotion has to enable him to opt for a noble goal to strict compliance with the law? The community of volunteers filming a book of science fiction writer Isaac Asimov is not only rapidly staged, but also full of questions, the answers to which would require a long philosophical discourse.
Director: Steven Lisberger
Jeff Bridges is in TRON seen as computer genius Flynn, who tried Ed Dillinger, the ruthless leader of a media empire to stop after it has been stolen from him. But Dillinger’s MCP, an emotionless, artificial intelligence, which develops itself, controlled cyberspace and preventing any intrusion into protected sectors. As Flynn and some programmer friends try in the system to hack again, the increasingly powerful MCP transfers it into the digital world of cyberspace. TRON was one of the first films in which extended computer-generated sequences were used and is still regarded as a milestone in the history of computer animation.
