Gently rising out of the sidewalk and topping out at nearly 12 feet, BEACON is a slender concrete and stainless steel structure enclosing a stack of indestructible LED matrix screens, similar to those found on Times Square billboards. The upper screens function as digital signage, creating an ad-supported revenue stream that allows Beacon to provide its other functions free of charge. These screens also adapt to public events throughout our city, from NYC marathon mileage markers to themed banners, celebrating with the city during its many parades. The lower screens are dedicated to New York City’s local street life and communities, with hyper local advertising, community message boards, and of course, the telephone functionality. Controlled by your voice and gestures, Beacon is touch-free and hygienic, and is highly accessible. It uses directional microphones and noise canceling speakers to create the right acoustic environment for making phone calls, and an array of sensors to track gestures. Fire, Police, and Taxi are physical buttons, always at the ready to signal our needs direct to the city and via the colored light crown. Beacon is also there for us in times of emergency, such as when we experienced Superstorm Sandy. The upper digital signage and the light crown on top give us clear instructions on how to respond during these events. Beacon becomes an information kiosk during times of emergency, providing updates on critical services, evacuation instructions, and directions to local shelters in multiple languages. Beacon’s solar cells trickle charge an integrated battery, creating an uninterruptible power supply to update the information on a regular and consistent basis, even during a blackout. Beacon is New York City’s next generation open communications platform, connecting the city and its services with our communities, businesses, residents, and visitors. Beacon makes New York City more accessible, safer, healthier, greener, and better informed in our best of times and our most challenging. Beacon was designed to connect New York City with New Yorkers, businesses and visitors. Beacon takes everything chaotic, colorful & loud about New York City and connects it back to us in an intelligent, purposeful & familiar way.+ More details

While on a longer than anticipated hiatus from his world bicycle tour, Kurt Sandiforth ended up at Peoples Bicycle in Beacon, NY. In addition to his duties as mechanic, he spent his time building his own bike gear from scratch and replenishing his savings. He also competed in three self-supported endurance events in 2012, with a total count of about 4,000 miles raced. We caught up with Kurt just before he resumed his journey around the globe and captured some of his story.

A program service of the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, B.A.S.I.C.S. is designed to promote safety and awareness through world-class fundamentals coaching and education. The second in a series of five videos, the Avalanche Awareness video is intended to help those who ski, snowboard or snowmobile in the back country be better equipped and safe while being aware of the inherent dangers with such activities. Key things to know to enjoy the back country and come home safe: 1. Get Educated. Learn about avalanche safety by taking a class. 2. Know your skills, know your surroundings. Check out forecasts for weather and conditions before you go. 3. Have the proper equipment and know how to use it (avalanche transceiver, probe, shovel, and airbag). 4. Never travel alone. Always ride with partners in a group and have a plan. 5. If you don't feel comfortable, don't go. There is always tomorrow when using good judgement. Key websites: American Institute for Avalanche Research and Eduction (http://avtraining.org) Avalanche.Org (http://avalanche.org) Forest Service National Avalanche Center (http://www.fsavalanche.org) National Snow and Ice Data Center (http://nsidc.org) Back Country Access (BCA) Float Airbags and Safety Equipment (http://www.backcountryaccess.com) In 2012 Lake Tahoe skier, Ben Brackett lost his life due to an avalanche. Donations already made in honor of "Benny" helped fund the Avalanche Awareness video and subsequent educational tour. Please help keep this program to grow by donating today (http://highfivesfoundation.org/index.php/donate/restricted/basics). “The action sports world involves a freedom from rules and regulations which we love because it keeps creativity and progression limitless. But, that freedom allows for oversight of teaching and mastering B.A.S.I.C.S., a risky combination. High Fives is dedicated to catching athletes before they crash and providing a platform for further, safer progression.” - JT Holmes, Director of B.A.S.I.C.S.

It appears that a GoPro interferes with the signal of a beacon. We did a couple tests and these were our results. I recommend making sure your GoPro (or any other camera for that matter) is completely off if you are ever doing a beacon search.+ More details
