Entering the World of Wearables

How about owning a piece of garment to which you can gesture to play music as you cycle, attend calls by just tapping the cloth and also notify you, when you reach your desired location? Slated for release in the coming months, Levi’s Project Jacquard is a technology straight out of a sci-film. Using conductive yarns, thin metallic alloys and synthetic and natural yarns structures like cotton, silk or polyester; interactive areas are woven into the textile that are connected to tiny circuits. The technology would make its debut in the Levi’s Commuter Trucker collection which is embedded with haptics, LED and embedded sensors that interact with the digital world in real time. Read more

AI And Machine Learning

The entry point of AI into the business mainstream is not going to be with state of the art applications, but it will be with sound ML algorithms that have been successfully proofed already. The opportunity to use this knowledge and technologies is bigger than ever. Social networks and IoT have enabled access to an amount of data as never before and the increasing computational capacity of current computers makes the embracing of these technologies very feasible.

Stuxnet – The Fourth Dimension in Warfare

Stuxnet was designed to learn about the hardware and proceed with its payload or purpose accordingly. It particularly targeted programmable logic controllers or PLC’s manufactured by Siemens. A PLC is a small computer that is attached to a piece of hardware or machinery. It is used to regulate and operate those machines and is vital in developing critical infrastructure. The worm, when active goes through a number of checks. If Stuxnet did not find the exact hardwares in place, it would not proceed.

Created with a stylish round design and cameras on either side, the glossy spectacles are designed to easily capture images. Read more

A Peek into The Birth of Self-Driving Cars

Self-driving cars have for decades been the projected fantasy of science fiction. The world’s first self-propelled car made its appearance a few centuries ago, at the hands of one of the world’s greatest inventors, Leonardo da Vinci. Read more

Wearable Tech: Tactile Navigation for the Visually Impaired

Haptic technology is revolutionising tech with its ‘hands-on’ approach shifting the paradigms of wearable tech. Providing an interactive experience based on digital touch, haptic technology is proving to be a boon driving development of specialised devices for the visually impaired, opening up a world of possibilities for their sensory world. The latest innovations include navigation systems for the visually impaired, from haptic wristbands to tactile traffic maps. Read more

Black Mirror: A Reflection of Technological Doom

The subliminal break from reality begins with the first few frames, as a glass screen breaks for the title shot of Black Mirror. The dystopian anthology of narratives intertwined within the possibilities of technology is a modern-day reminder of the Twilight Zone. Read more

Solar Islands – The Solution to a Sustainable Future

In November 2016, Tesla completed the $2.6 billion acquisition of SolarCity, a manufacturer of solar power generating products. Their first agenda is to completely electrifying the island of Ta’u in American Samoa using solar energy. For almost a year, Tesla was working on installing a microgrid, batteries and solar panels to convert an island originally run entirely by diesel generators to a completely sustainable island. The project began soon after the announcement of Musk’s interest in acquiring SolarCity, a veiled attempted to impress upon shareholders the benefits of such an acquisition. Read more

Avegant Glyph – The World’s First Personal Theater

Since mobile phones began streaming visual content, the movie experience has become incredibly personalized but is missing the absorbing environment of a big theater screen. Reminiscent of Geordi La Forge’s Visor from Star Trek: The Next Generation, the coolest immersive media device, the Avegant Glyph, has arrived. Read more

Apple Homepod: Music Reimagined

Apple unveiled the Homepod, a new generation speaker at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference recently and one can say that this new product is truly a design and technological marvel. But what is it that makes it so unique? The inspiration behind the design was to create something light, highly portable and which works as a home assistant to the customers. As described at the launch, the Homepod was going to “reinvent music” in homes. Read more

Choosing a VR Headset? Here are some Things to Think about

Virtual Reality (VR) has always tugged at our curiosity; all those science-fiction TV shows and movies, not to mention all the gaming and tech developments, have definitely had us thinking about how VR works and how cool it would be to literally enter another world, even though we’re just sitting in our living room. Today, VR is a reality but with all the apps available for Android and iOS smartphones, you need the right hardware to really enjoy the experience; in 2017, that hardware is becoming quite accessible.

Vuze VR Camera – The Cheapest 360-degree 3D Camera

Vuze developed the cheapest 360-degree 3D camera and partnered with HumanEyes which developed the software to shoot VR content with this package. Consisting of 8 cameras, the Vuze device has the ability to shoot eight different feeds in RAW format which will be processed by the software included with the package. The software package, considered more advanced than the camera was developed by collaborating with VisiSonics to enable 3D audio capabilities and WakingApp, a creation tool to add 3D objects and pictures into the footage.

AMD RX 480 – Virtual Reality for the Masses

The AMD RX 480 isn’t just any newly launched graphics card; it is the one which most PC (personal computing) users have been waiting for. The PC market has experienced negligible growth in the last couple of years, with PC users not upgrading their hardware because performance of their existing systems has been more than adequate to handle all current computing needs. With the resurrection of VR (Virtual Reality), component manufacturers anticipated increase in sales based on the enthusiastic interest of PC users. Read more

Dermal Abyss: Skin Deep Wearable Tech

The world of wearable tech is evolving, and its latest development is sensing its way into health vitals in a fashionable design.
