:: iPhone app tells if building is safe as a tsunami shelter :: Is your building tall enough to offer adequate shelter in a tsunami? That is a question that is worth asking, especially when you live in a country like Japan, where earthquakes are normal occurrences, and there is always a danger of a tsunami should the next big one hit. Nabla-Zero, a Japanese IT company that specializes in disaster prevention, has decided to do something about the situation by conjuring a free application for the iPhone which is capable of measuring whether a building is tall enough to deliver the right kind of shelter from a tsunami. Known as the “AR TSUNAMI-CAMERA”, it will rely on the iPhone’s camera as well as the power of augmented reality to transpose a virtual image of a wave up to 25-meters against the actual scenery. Majority of the tsunami caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake stood anywhere from 3 to 10 meters in height. This app was developed after local governing bodies approached Nabla-Zero, and will see action in disaster prevention education programs in public schools. There are plans to roll out an Android-powered version

:: Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg on Greatest Innovators List :: Steve Jobs has been named the second greatest innovator of all time, behind Thomas Edison, in the 2012 Lemelson-MIT Invention Index. The data comes from a survey asking 1,010 Americans ages 16 – 25 to identify the greatest innovator of all time. The majority of surveyed young Americans – 52% – chose Edison as the greatest innovator. 24% chose Jobs, followed by Alexander Bell, Marie Curie and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, who received 3% of the votes. These two figures are doing so well on the list because young adults feel that the technology Jobs and Zuckerberg helped create greatly influences their daily lives. For example, 40 percent of respondents said they couldn’t imagine their life without a smartphone or a tablet. However, the respondents aren’t so sure whether they’d try to become innovators themselves. 45 percent said that invention is not given enough attention in their school, and 28 percent said their education left them unprepared to enter the fields that lead to innovation, namely science, technology, engineering or math. “This year’s survey revealed that less than half of respondents have done things like used a drill or hand-held power tool, or made something out of raw materials in the past year. We must engage students in these types of invention experiences as well as provide a strong STEM education to drive future innovators,” said Leigh Estabrooks, the Lemelson-MIT Program’s invention education officer.

:: Apple jumps into digital textbooks fray with iBooks 2 :: Apple Inc unveiled a new digital textbook service called iBooks 2 on Thursday, aiming to revitalise the US education market and quicken the adoption of its market-leading iPad in that sector. The consumer electronics giant has been working on digital textbooks with publishers Pearson PLC, McGraw-Hill and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, a trio responsible for 90 per cent of textbooks sold in the United States. The move pits the makers of the iPod and iPhone against Amazon.com Inc and other content and device makers that have made inroads into the estimated $8 billion market with their electronic textbook offerings. At an event at New York's Guggenheim Museum, Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller introduced tools to craft digital textbooks and demonstrated how authors and even teachers can create books for students. The "value of the app is directly proportional to students having iPads," said Michael Gartenberg, an analyst with industry research firm Gartner. "But this will lead to more schools adopting as a requirement." Reinventing the textbook :- Schiller said it was time to reinvent the textbook, adding that 1.5 million iPads are in use now in education. "It's hard not to see that the textbook is not always the ideal learning tool," he said."It's a bit cumbersome."IBooks 2 will be available as a free app on the iPad, starting Thursday. High school textbooks will be priced at $14.99 or less, Schiller said. "You'll see textbooks for every subject for every level," he added. At the event, the first since the passing of Apple founder Steve Jobs, Schiller said teachers need help and Apple is trying to figure out how it can do its part. "In general, education is in the dark ages," he said, adding that education has challenges that are "pretty profound." Other media and technology companies have eyed the US education market as ripe for some sort of upheaval. Rupert Murdoch's News Corp launched an education business two years ago and hired former New York City Education Chancellor Joel Klein to lead it. According to Jobs' biography by Walter Isaacson, Murdoch met with Jobs last year and discussed the possibility of Apple's entrance into a market Jobs estimated at $8 billion a year and believed was ripe for disruption.
