Google’s Project Tango

Kenny Alvarez

Google’s Project Tango likely will change how we use our smartphones. Project Tango is an Android phone that uses 3D mapping technologies like those used on the Mars rover to give mobile phones 3D mapping capabilities. The current prototype is a 5-inch phone that tracks the full 3D motion of the device and creates a map of the environment. Sensors on the device allow it to make more than a quarter million measurements every second, so your 3D model is updated in real-time.

Jenna Dundore

It’s no secret that Twitter has long been a twenty-something’s game. We record our every move, retweet our favorite articles, live tweet during our Thursday night television shows - the works. With the snappiness of the platform, and easy accessibility on mobile phones, it’s every college student’s dream social network. But what about everyone else? How about our superiors, and the professionals we follow at beck and call in hopes of landing the perfect job? I’m finding that Twitter is much more than just 140 characters of entertainment. It’s evolving into 140 characters of success.

How Social Media Changed the Narrative of Atlantarctica 2014

Jemma Borocz

The headlines of January 29th, 2014 were an embarrassment to any Atlanta resident. We were the poster city for poor planning. NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, CNN — you name it — all stations talked about how only 2 inches of snow shut down one of the largest cities in the US. Plenty of criticism was thrown at city and state government by the citizens and the rest of the country. And everyone, whether they had experienced the disaster or not, had an opinion about where things went wrong.
