5 Days to Meet ARGUS – The World’s First Contactless Emotions Scanner

LONDON, May 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ —

Meet ARGUS, The World’s First Contactless Facial Reader & Hidden Emotions Scanner. Scan & Read People. Explore a New Generation of PLAY & ART Concepts!

Imagine being able to probe and truly affect your inner feelings – and those of
others. Being able to read faces and enjoy genuine invisible emotions and senses. Analyze
and read people to anticipate their thoughts and actions like never before. Use just your
deepest emotions and feelings to create unique abstract paintings and video, or, play a
completely new generation of responsive games. Get inside a first-person-shooter as it creates action, dialog, and outcomes based on your innermost feelings.

Imagine having a device that can help you do all that and a great deal more – thanks
to its ability to “see the invisible”, to detect and read naturally occurring facial and head micro-fluctuations so subtle they cannot be seen by the naked eye.

ARGUS is designed to bring a whole new world to your fingertips. While representing a
significant advance in the science of human emotion analysis and stress estimation and
management, it also serves as an example of the state of technology today: if something
can be imagined, it can be created, and be found to have a far greater range of potential uses than anyone could have dreamt of.

The micro-oscillation analysis solution consists of Argus bio-scanners and respective
software bundles. Argus digitizes and amplifies raw analog signals, a byproduct of all micro-oscillations. It then delivers this information to our optimized biometric
algorithms for spectral analysis and processing. Through this process it ultimately
delivers accurate estimates of hidden emotions; the advanced software can even perform
these functions via Skype independently. Argus can be used for comparative analysis,
learning, and educational purposes, or for fun through Argus ART & PLAY. ART has passed
beta testing with flying colours and PLAY won’t keep you waiting either, as an in-house Responsive-RPG “The Eye: Genesis”, is underway. Find more on ArguScan.com [http://www.arguscan.com?ref=pr ].

“ARGUS is the world’s first contactless automated facial reader. The Argus
bio-scanners deliver a feast of potential innovation to individuals, inventors and
visionaries of all sorts. In bringing the invisible into the light, it is destined to enable many to work and play harder,” the developers say.

Argus can impact an amazing variety of industries, from personal security to public
defense, hands-free control systems, adaptive smart environments, accessibility design,
market research, psychology, medicine, robotics, and transport. The list goes on – to, and
probably beyond, the like of NASA’s ongoing studies which see how people will interact and function on month long journeys to Mars.

Available in four models, from a hand-held mobile version through to a
state-of-the-art, PC interfacing, juggernaut for professionals, the Argus scanner is
opening up new doors to anyone who’s wished they had a creative tool that could match
their imagination – a tool advanced enough to let them perceive new possibilities and bring them to fruition.

ARGUS is launching on KickStarter.com [http://www.kickstarter.com ] in just 5 days and the creators need your help and support. Subscribe on ArguScan.com [http://www.arguscan.com/?ref=pr ] to be kept in the loop.

CommunityCube Launches Kickstarter to Fund Citizen-Driven Parallel Internet

CommunityCube Launches Kickstarter to Fund Citizen-Driven Parallel Internet

HAMBURG, Germany, May 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Hardware startup CommunityCube has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the build and development of a plug-and-play open source, small server designed to build a cooperative, fair internet where users’ privacy and rights are protected.

The server bundles open source hardware and software to provide a streamlined experience, even if they don’t have knowledge of cyber security technology or programming.

“Average Internet users don’t have access to the tools to protect themselves from spying corporations or governments,” says co-founder Jonay Sanz. “We want to build a tool that anyone can use, even if they don’t have a technical background.”

CommunityCube is the physical layer, rendering secure cloud-based services over a grid, where everybody has equal power. When deployed, each cube acts as an independent node in a citizen-fueled parallel Internet, where users can be completely anonymous while also taking advantage of fully encrypted, decentralized cloud storage.

Each CommunityCube comes with the following fully assembled and operative hardware configuration:
