One photo story symbolizing human (Human) (Wikipedia)

In Wikipedia (Wikipedia), the top image of human (Human) is a picture of Aka's men and women living in Thailand. The story until deciding on this "one piece symbolizing humanity" is interesting, letting her think again of humans. The top image was selected for the first time in "Pioneer Metal Plate Metal Plate" image has been adopted for about 5 years. However, at the end of a long-standing argument (Talk: Human / Image), editors of Wikipedia decided to change the image of the metal plate. And in the past decade, Thai men and women symbolize us all human beings. The metal plate of the Pioneer explorer was a nameplate attached to the Space Exploration Pioneer No. 10 and No. 11 launched in 1972 and 1973, and a message from humankind for the extraterrestrial intelligent life form is drawn in a picture I did it. "Ultra-fine transition of neutral hydrogen", "Male and female appearance" "Outer shape of the probe", "Relative position of the sun relative to the galactic center and 14 pulsars" and "Solar system" are drawn. According to Frank Drake, who conducted the world's first extraterrestrial intelligent life exploration (SETI), there were many negative reactions on the nakedness of "male and female appearance" drawn on this metal plate That's right. A lot of photos appeared as candidates for "one piece symbolizing humanity", but in 2007 a user named "Silence" found an image that is a page called "Couples" of Wikipedia and cited it as a candidate . Silence says in alphabetical order the reason for choosing this image in the FAQ. It seems that the Akha (Akha) started from 'A', so it was on the top of the page. Akha people (en: Wikipedia) Hani (Myanmar, Thailand, Akha in Laos) (Wikipedia) To the extraterrestrial intellectual life that does not share the same knowledge as mankind and to the artificial intelligence in the future (AI) Even if it is made to symbolize "human (Human) as one image", what type of image (picture) should be selected? I think that it is human (Human) only with "difference" "diversity" such as race, culture, gender (LGBT) The database in the Copyright Law of Japan is stipulated as "A person who has creativity by information selection or systematic composition in the database is protected as a work" (Article 12-2). The systematic composition in Wikipedia and the story "determining one picture" encourages the creativity and good sense of our human beings. I recommend you to read a wonderful article. Until the image symbolizing "human" on Wikipedia is decided by Thai men and women ─ ─ The story of "1 piece" chosen after 5 years of intense theory (Wired.jp)

Google Glass: Next-generation design patent (Design Patent)

Looking at the design patent that Google acquired on June 16, 2015, we can predict what the next-generation Google Glass will be like. United States Design Patens US D 732,025 S (USPTO.gov) It is predictable that the evolution of technology such as hardware, devices, batteries, etc. will be made smaller and lighter, making it more likely to be a smart design.

Early eyeglasses are used for presbyopia, mainly using convex lenses. The glasses device invented to solve the presbyopia and myopia that bothered people, but after more than 730 years history, applications such as bifocal, sunglasses, goggles, UV cut, pollen prevention, etc. evolved to various uses I did it. Regarding the relationship between humans and media, the relationship between humans and computers and internet connections, the direction of wireless and wearable is natural, as depicted in movies "alien" and "terminator". Wearing glasses and wallets, wallets are considered natural in "what people can wear" other than clothing. In the near future, I think that there is no necessity to carry the current "smartphone main body" and "mobile body" occupying the hand of a person. Google Glass, which I am not planning to leave yet, next-generation design is "modest" (Wired.jp) Japan-US patent disputes frequently occurred in the high-tech field in the 1980s, and at the conference there was a delay in delaying patent examination in Japan, Was regarded as a problem.
