The Year in Ideas

"This is ''ambient information'' — the newest concept in how to monitor everyday data. We've been cramming stock tips, horoscopes and news items onto our computers and cellphones — forcing us to peer constantly at little screens. What if we've been precisely wrong?"

The Ambient Orb may look like a crystal ball on acid, but it's really more of a giant mood ring—plugged straight into the fluctuations of the stock market or anything else you care to track. The orb can be wirelessly configured to track any individual stock, any market index or your personal portfolio. "People want information, but they don't want to invest a lot of time in getting it," says Ambient president David Rose. "This makes getting information a 'glanceable' thing."
