Solar Roadways: Great Concept, Great Marketing [Video]

Solar Roadways, a US based start-up that is developing a “modular paving system of solar panels” has raised $1.4 million in crowd-funding, within 7 days, on Indiegogo. While the concept of solar-powered smart roads is exciting and a peek into possible future, the success of Solar Roadways’ ‘viral’ marketing campaign raises several discussion points for our #hkuiom meetings!


The wonderful video that powered this superb effort is below:


Human Augmentation via Exoskeleton [Video]

One of the ET projects during last term’s #hkuiom showcased several videos on human augmentation. This video is a promo of Lockheed Martin’s HULK Exoskeleton, which is designed to enhance the capabilities of a human soldier.



Twitter Tips – Dr. Seuss Style

The folks over at HootSuite (my current favorite Social Media Management Dashboard) recently came up with this wonderful Dr. Seuss-Inspired Guide to Twitter. Very nice, humorous way to showcase several Twitter Tips for brands (remember #hkuiom – you are also a brand!).


Non-Functional Requirements in Mobile Applications

Fantastic piece on Non-Functional Requirements in Mobile Apps; a key question in our #HKUiSAD discussions!

All Things Mobile

Imagine if your bank’s website were to display the following disclaimer on its homepage: “We do not guarantee the security of your personal data or your account information while transacting on our net-banking portal”. Will you still use it? Almost certainly not!
