They&#39;re arranged so that the top and bottom of the lamp emit more light, and glare from the side is kept to a minimum.</p> <p>The structure is initially reminiscent of an insect&#39;s compound eye, though the inspiration behind the design was something quite different. &quot;It looks like an insect&#39;s eye,&quot; says Wertel, &quot;but actually the starting point for this structure is Buckminster Fuller, the geodesic dome; and then we subdivided it to arrive at this structure. It&#39;s always nice for us to see the connection between mathematics and nature; so suddenly this Buckminster Fuller dome looks like an insect&#39;s eye.&quot;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Philips Hue Entity luminaire" alt="Philips Hue Entity luminaire" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/philips-hue-02.jpg?1413283358" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Jan Wertel" alt="Jan Wertel" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/jan-wertel.jpg?1413283358" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>3D printing is currently being used to create some very distinctive designs &ndash; ones that show off the potential of the process to create previously-impossible shapes. Wertel doesn&#39;t see that lasting, however. &quot;It&#39;s still at the stage where you need to show that it&#39;s 3D printed; that&#39;s why it&#39;s so elaborate. And we like to experiment, so this is more of an experimental design.&quot; he notes. Some aspects of the design are also informed by the limitations of the manufacturing process. &quot;We have an understructure,&quot; Wertel says, &quot;and because of cost it&#39;s actually split in two parts, so you can stack them in the machine. And to hide the split line, we created an outer structure.&quot;</p> <p>&quot;Even the surface structure that we added was there to hide any mistakes that the printer makes,&quot; he adds; otherwise, the rough texture of the laser-sintered polyamide wouldn&#39;t sit right next to the smooth, sculpted designs of the Hue range.</p> <p>Those limitations will eventually be overcome, though; and the elaborate designs of 3D printed products will give way to more everyday products. &quot;I just repaired my Bugaboo by printing a part, so this is like a sensible use of the technology which is growing and growing,&quot; Wertel says. &quot;It&#39;s really like the boundaries between consumer and producer are becoming blurred.&quot;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Philips Hue Entity luminaire" alt="Philips Hue Entity luminaire" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/philips-hue-03.jpg?1413283358" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Philips Hue Entity luminaire" alt="Philips Hue Entity luminaire" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/philips-hue-04.jpg?1413283358" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="Philips Hue Entity luminaire" alt="Philips Hue Entity luminaire" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/philips-hue-05.jpg?1413283358" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Before that happens, though, more well-known brands are incorporating 3D printing into their products.

As Philips&#39; Hans von Dlemm puts it, the party street is &ldquo;a cocktail of alcohol, hormones and drugs&rdquo; and police record over 800 fights, brawls and insult-ridden arguments (all known as escalations) per year.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/sophie-charara" title="View user profile.">Sophie Charara</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Welcome to the Living Lab </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Two sets of customers pay at a till. The first group are polite, ask to use the chip and PIN machine and generally leave a tip. The second are rude and more likely to start hammering in their PIN code without checking. The difference? The first group paid in a warm, white light and the second in a very cool light.</p> <p>In collaboration with the municipality of Eindhoven and the Intelligent Lighting Institute at Eindhoven University of Technology (which conducted the cash register research), Philips is fitting the Stratumseind&#39;s 25 streetlights with connected, controllable RBG lightbulbs in a bid to make barhoppers behave more like those first customers. The project, which will run for four years, is named &ldquo;De-escalate&rdquo; and the Stratumseind the &ldquo;Living Lab&rdquo;.</p> <p>&ldquo;Research on behaviour in different types of light has been done but never outdoors and never on this scale,&rdquo; says von Dlemm. &ldquo;People start behaving differently when there&#39;s a low light level, they feel like they&#39;re not noticed and do all sorts of things they wouldn&#39;t usually do.</p> <p>In the home, we have Philips&#39; Living Colours and Hue bulbs that influence atmosphere. So it was logical to see how it could influence the outdoor atmosphere. We feel that coloured lighting can have a positive effect on escalations.&rdquo;</p> <p>Tweaking will involve the colour, tone and intensity of the lights and won&#39;t actually begin until November but the Stratumseind already has a system in place to increase the brightness of streetlights from 5 lux to 20 lux when there&#39;s an incident. This helps the police and medical staff to do their jobs properly but also means that crowds gather to have a look.&nbsp;</p> <p>&quot;They say &#39;Something&#39;s going on over there.&quot; One thing we&#39;re going to do research on is how to get people out of there. If you increase a light setting on the other side of the street, people will move out of the way of the incident.&quot;&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="3264" height="2448" title="A demo of how the streetlight control would work " alt="A demo of how the streetlight control would work " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_0341%20%281%29.JPG?1412164665" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="3264" height="2448" title="Info is fed in to the team which manipulates the colour, tone and intensity of the lights" alt="Info is fed in to the team which manipulates the colour, tone and intensity of t" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_0315.JPG?1412164665" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="3264" height="2448" title="Up to 15,000 people come here over three days - slow night?" alt="Up to 15,000 people come here over three days - slow night?" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_0396.JPG?1412164665" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-4"> <div class="field-label">Image #4:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_4" width="3264" height="2448" title="A demo of how the streetlight control would work " alt="A demo of how the streetlight control would work " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_0340.JPG?1412164665" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A Seriously Sensorific Street </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Any changes that Philips and the Institute make to the lighting on the Stratumseind will be based on both historical information from the police and data from sensors dotted around the area.&nbsp;</p> <p>The municipality of Eindhoven has really kitted out the street. They track the density of people moving around the area, they have 3D sound measurement tools to record decibel levels, counting cameras at the entrance and exits to the street (which only quantify the number of people and don&#39;t store images) and GPS data for the medical teams in the area so that they can show up on the real time map used by the researchers.&nbsp;</p> <p>Bar owners also provide information ahead of time helping the team to prepare for a football match or big dance event and both bar owners and the police submit alerts when there is an incident.&nbsp;</p> <p>The Stratumseind lighting controllers are also working on an algorithm, based on police reports, to determine the prime conditions for an escalation. &quot;It&#39;s really important to look at the data and see what it means. You&#39;d think more escalations happen in summer but it&#39;s winter,&quot; says von Dlemm. &quot;You could say an escalation occurred when it was 10 degrees C, when the density of people was X amount per square metre, when the sound measurement was X many decibels. Then you can create an algorithm to say - this is the perfect situation for an escalation.&quot;&nbsp;</p> <p>The experiment will begin in November when the team will have permission to manipulate the lighting at certain times of day and night.</p> <p>We don&#39;t envy them.

The company told IGN that <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/steam-box/steamos-why-next-must-have-console-might-be-pc/feature">SteamOS</a>, which’ll soon be competing with Windows PCs and home consoles, will not feature big name exclusive titles: “you won’t see an exclusive killer app on SteamOS from us; we’re not going to be doing that kind of thing.”</p> <p>Some had speculated that Valve would release Half-Life 3 on SteamOS only, as a way to encourage gamers to adopt the platform, but that seems highly unlikely in the wake of this announcement. Valve, of course, has never even confirmed that the game is in development.

The UK’s largest retailer has announced plans to introduce ‘smart’ advertising displays that, thanks to a built-in camera, can recognise a viewer’s general age and gender and show them tailored 10-second ads. It might seem scary, but given that Google, Amazon and Facebook are already doing the same – albeit online – based on the stacks of information they’ve gleaned from your Internet activity, Tesco’s actions are simply a logical progression of real-world advertising.
