Pokemon came and Pokemon GO

“Everything in this world is uncertain; the only two things we are certain are death and change”

We are living in a fast and growing environment where change is inevitable. The world as we all know it is in fast changing community where technology is like a shadow chased by its owner.

Individuals have their own personal electronic gadgets [i.e. mobile phones, tablets and things alike.] which is dominated by Applications and games that preoccupies them during their idle time.

Is this means Goodbye?

 

One of which is the trending Pokemon GO, it came to the world from being small which is limited to specific countries only but now it became a world-wide trend, the game itself is not only for kids and teenagers but also to adults who came to like the said game.

The game became famous real fast and now the world losses its interest on the game real fast too, same as how it became famous. The reason why it went down is because, First, it doesn’t have the capabilities to ride along with the fast moving pace the world of technology has.

Second, it only has limited features like catching a Pokemon, hatching an egg, battling through Gyms and that’s it. It’s been few months since it released and it already went down due to idleness of its development.

And if it doesn’t listen to its consumers then it shall stand to its name Pokemon GO and bid farewell.

Suggestions:

  • Breeding Features: Which provides breeding capabilities of Pokemon through matching and compatibility like rock to rock Pokemons, Water and Fire could create a Hybrid Pokemon and other things alike.

  • Free Poke Balls: People can’t always go to pokestops, much better if they have free spins to have Pokeballs and stuffs.

  • Security: The game had been infiltrated and other third party programs are already rampant and that makes a minus point to users who play fair.

  • Global statistics: Top players and so “You have the minds, be creative”

Samsung integrates Android with cool devices, Galaxy NX and ATIV Q

Samsung had been on the Mainstream for years now, They introduced galaxy S and other world class Androids and that includes the recent Samsung Galaxy S4. So are you familiar with Androids? Or do you own a device which is integrated with an Android?

Samsung integrates Android with cool devices, Galaxy NX and ATIV Q

In London press conference today, Samsung unveiled two new products that integrates an Android operating system: ATIVQ Windows 8 tablet and the Galaxy NX Camera. (hold your horses photography enthusiasts)

Samsung’s ATIV line of tablets have all run Windows 8 (unlike its Galaxy Tab or Galaxy Note line, which are powered by Google’s Android software).

ATIV Q announced that “users can own a tablet that switches between Windows 8 and Android on the fly”.

Android apps can be pinned to the Windows task bar, as well as opened directly in Windows 8.” -Patrick Pavel, VP of European ATIV Marketing for Samsung

Well as Androids running on a Windows 8 PC isn’t new to us like Asus and Lenovo. Despite the fact this integration isn’t something new, Samsung’s innovative ideas made this possible that Google operating system and apps working along were better than other products in the industry.

You can convert between Android and Windows for the ATIVC Q, as well as the tablet. You can flip the screen up that reveals a hidden keyboard underneath. The display can also be completely parallel or perpendicular to the keyboard for ease of use, but still it would depend on how the user configures it on his own convenience.

• Display itself it is so impressive. They call it the QHD+

• Cramming 275 pixels per inch

• 13.3 inch display

• 13.9 mm thick

• 1.29 kg (approximately 3 pounds)

• And 9 hours battery life 🙂

Well that’s for the first product Samsung introduced. The Android feel doesn’t end there ladies and Gentlemen. Samsung also unveiled the Galaxy NX camera. (This is for you Photography Enthusiast)

Paravelo: Welcome to the world of Flying Bikes

Televisions, Cinemas and other movies we saw already have flying vehicles as what they expect to the upcoming generations to come, Is this really possible?

Have you ever thought of moving from a bumper to bumper traffic? Like you wanted to have a flying vehicle and just pass through the line? It all sums up with this new Invention introduced by British inventors.

Yes, you heard that right. Flight innovators; John Foden (37) and Yannick Read (42), Both of them devised a fully functional flying bicycle the Paravelo.

The Wright brothers were former bicycle mechanics so there’s a real connection between cycling and the birth of powered flight that is recaptured in the spirit of the Paravelo,” says so-creator John Foden.

The speed of the machine can travel 15 miles per hour (on the road) and 25 miles per hour (in the air) Amazing isn’t it? It could reach an altitudes up to 4,000 feet.

• Can be disconnected from its trailer for inner city use.

• Docks to form a ‘para-trike’ for take-off.

• In order to fly, the bike and trailer are fastened together

• Wing is unfurled and an electric starter

• Biofuel-powered 249cc motor.

• It can stay up to 3 hours above the ground

• Moreover controls of the vehicle is like a para-glider

Basically since it was adopted from the concept of the airplane, The bike needs a clear open ground runway for the take-off. And since this vehicle is new no license is needed. But, proper training is highly recommended by  United States Powered Paragliding Association.

As this vehicles came to existence, it’s not too far that sooner or later we could see flying cars. This is just a manifestation of how great human minds are. So have your gears and start peddling.

The world’s slimmest Smartphone

Image

As of today, People aren’t the only one who are slim says the new Ascend P6. Aside from holding the world’s fastest computer, China introduces the world’s slimmest Smartphone.

“The Android-based Ascend P6 is 6.18mm (0.24in) thick and is also unusual in that it has a 5 megapixel front camera” (Well good enough for self portraits)

In addition, It limits the capacity to handle a 4G network. (That would affect their sales)

As we can see for the past few years, China worked hard to improve in manufacturing world-class products in the industry.

Specifications:

• 4.7in screen

• “auto-facial enhancement” tool designed to make self-portraits look better.

• Emotion and proprietary software

• An 8 megapixel rear camera

• Use of the latest Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 operating system

• 2 gigabytes of internal RAM memory – a relatively low amount – but support for 32GB microSD cards

• A 1.5GHz quad core processor

• Various power saving technologies based on the firm’s experience as one of the biggest telecoms equipment makers. As a result, it says the device’s battery lasts 30% longer than it would do otherwise.

Project Loon explained: Inside the Cave of Technology

Have you tried going to a remote area where in your gadgets that could connect to the internet lost its signal or a radio communication device with a husky frequency? Well, there is already an upcoming solution for internet access and device frequency.

Google is working on its Project Loon, let’s not talk much how sophisticated it is but rather we would explain to you in the simplest manner.

Project Loon in an inter-connection of balloons at the top where airplanes fly (You can stop the imagination of airplanes hitting balloons now), it is designed to reach the most rural and isolated areas in parts of the world where internet access is next to impossible.

“Project Loon starts in June 2013 with an experimental pilot in New Zealand. A small group of Project Loon pioneers will test the technology in Christchurch and Canterbury.” – Project Loon

If your antennas in the surface needs to face a certain direction or needs to be elevated high above ground then the Project Loon in space does the same. Using the wind blows by pilots, they can direct where the Loon is heading to the right direction so with that they can arrange a certain position to have a one large communicate network of Loons. (hoping we could see that, we all love balloons)

Design:

Polyethylene Plastic

• 15m Wide and 12m Tall (When fully inflated)

• Longer lasting than weather balloons

• Can withstand higher pressure (When the Loon reaches float altitude)

• Attached parachute at the top for landing and taken out of service.

Solar Panels:

When running during the day, Loon provides 100 watts of power in full sun enough to keep it running during the night. (Basically if there will be no technical errors at the top it can have an unlimited source of energy).

Equipment:

Circuit boards that control the system.

• Radio antennas to communicate with other balloons

• With Internet antennas on the ground (You need to have a linking device on buildings to access the Loon)

• Batteries that absorb the energy generated from the solar panels to be used during the night.

You might be thinking about how it connects to the ground, each balloon can provide connectivity around 40km (Just imagine a signal tower at the top of the sky) comparable to 3G speed.

“The balloons use antennas equipped with specialized radio frequency technology”

In addition to that you can also be a test pilot if you are within their area of testing, and who knows you will be tapped to be the area pilot. More info
