Social WobbleTime 2:50pm-3:10pm

Presenters Project Description Country Website

Social Wobble will show the gut response of the crowd - instantly. With no need to type 140 characters, the app shows mass mobilisation in real time. Your “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” response is fed into an aggregator that gives real-time collective response to TV stations, politicians, entertainers and sports programmers. This will allow not only the participants but also the aggregator to sense and capture the mood and emotions of the audience and turn it into data.

The key audience group and foundation of Social Wobble will be world-wide TV audiences and social media users. They will use Social Wobble to share their real-time views on live television shows through the application interface. The audience group will be as diverse as the television shows they watch covering all demographics. Social Wobble will enhance the television experience making it more interactive and fun.

The Social Wobble project will create mobile, web, tablet, and television based versions of the application that will allow key audience groups to share real-time views. Social Wobble will turn emotions into data and tell you every second of an event what the audience feels. This data is priceless to a television producer, politician or advertiser.

Image Mervyn Byron The Sky Tap Project

The Sky Tap Project is to demonstrate a technology which has the ability to condense atmospheric water vapor at dew point temperature altitude, forming clouds within minutes to provide cooling shade. As those clouds absorb more water vapor due to a hygroscopic effect, they can be targeted once again downwind with a second unit to induce precipitation. This provides controllable cloud cover to reduce surface heat, reducing energy costs for urban areas, and the ability to induce precipitation over targeted areas to enhance agricultural production or restore river flows, reservoirs and aquifers. It can also rapidly condense water droplets in dense ground fog to dissipate it within minutes, extending for kilometers in any direction at airports, harbors and at critical transportation points to improve safety. Details can be found at www.skytapproject.com
