Augmented reality (AR) may seem like a futuristic concept, but it will be a reality of our digital lives in 2013. AR is a new technology that blurs the line between what’s real and what’s computer generated by enhancing what we hear, see and feel. Next year, I predict that it will be everywhere.

As complicated as it can be, getting up in the morning has several really simple solutions, supposing you’re one not apt to be waking. One of them is TUI-AC, the Tangible User Interface Alarm Clock, a lovely little bomb that you set with a pin, turn, crank, and arm by releasing, and go ahead to sleep. Once the bomb’s set time is reached, BOOM! And alarm goes off that you’ll never miss. Why? Because of how complicated it is to get up, find the bomb, find the pin, and place the pin back in the bomb to stop the noise.

Music composers are a creative lot with immense talent and an undying craving to produce something new every time. Their creative instincts work constantly, drawing inspiration from anything that strikes them. They can create ideas even when they are not in their professional surroundings. We often hear that musicians are found writing famous songs in parks or at coffee shops or even at a beach.
