BY NERMIN HAJDARBEGOVIC – TECHNICAL EDITOR @ TOPTAL #Android #AndroidWear #Google #Wearable There is no diplomatic and professional way to put it: Android Wear is flopping; and it’s flopping quite badly. The smartwatch platform has been around for 18 months, yet the fact that it was introduced a few quarters before Apple rolled out its smartwatch does not appear to be helping. So why is Android Wear performing poorly and what does this mean for developers? Several factors conspired to stifle growth, ranging from lack of Google development, to inadequate hardware. Some of these problems have been addressed, some are being addressed, while others cannot be addressed with currently available technology. Android Wear Shipments Aren’t Impressive How bad is it? Android Wear was officially announced on March 18, 2014, but the first devices started shipping a quarter later. By the end of 2014, they were joined by more attractive products, such as the round Moto 360 and LG G Watch R, as well as rectangular models from heavyweights like Sony and Asus. It didn’t help, and 2014 sales were abysmal: an estimated 720,000 units. Apple managed to pull ahead of Google in a matter of months, selling an estimated 3.6 […]
BY DEMIR SELMANOVIC – SOFTWARE ENGINEER @ TOPTAL #Android #GoogleGlass #Java #OKGlass #Tutorial #WearableTech Google Glass is a futuristic technology that promises to revolutionize how we use our devices to interact with the world. But from a developer’s standpoint, what is so special about developing for the glass? The answer is “Nothing!” In fact, from the perspective of an experienced Android developer, Google Glass is just another Android device with a very small screen and limited features! The fact that anyone with Android development knowledge can become a member of this “elite” community of futuristic wearable-tech evangelists is part of what makes Google Glass so awesome. Sure, you will need to learn a few new things, such as the difference between “Immersion” and “Active Card”, but as you will see, the learning curve is not steep. The purpose of this Google Glass tutorial is to lay the groundwork for developing any Glass application, through the creation of a simple app that encompasses all of the common steps. My goal is to save you some time in research and trial-and-error, and enable you to run your first Glass application as soon as possible. In this tutorial we’ll first go over how […]
Social media behemoth Facebook is taking all the necessary steps to gain a foothold in the virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) market across the world. Recently, its CEO Mark Zuckerberg has revealed that the company has hired a former Google and Xiaomi employee Hugo Barra for heading its VR team at Oculus – which was purchased by Facebook in 2014 for $2 billion. Zuckerberg announced the information of hiring Barra through a Facebook post. The reports suggest that Barra, who is a computer scientist born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil worked with Google before joining Beijing-based smartphone developer Xiaomi. Barra joined Google back in 2008 and served the company effectually for more than five years. After two years of joining Google as Group Product Manager to lead its Mobile team, he eventually became a part of its Android team in the year 2010. From 2010 to 2013 Barra contributed tremendously to the growth of Google’s Android team. However, in 2013 Barra left Google and joined Chinese tech giant Xiaomi as its vice president. Including Barra in its senior management was a very proud feeling for Xiaomi, as he had an experience of working with one of the best tech […]
Technologies like virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, and haptic feedbacks are emerging successfully in almost every sector today, facilitating the users with an immersive experience of whatever they do. It has become difficult to differ these technological realities and others as they are getting combined under one category and it is called artificial reality. Plans have been made to introduce virtual reality in the classrooms with an aim of providing students with an immersive study experience. The tech market saw many different technologies emerging which included Google Glass, the Oculus Rift Headset, HTC Vive, Microsoft HoloLens, GearVR, Google Daydream headset and several others. All these have been successful so far and few others have not been able to make it to the commercial market. With the rapidly growing technologies, now the classrooms are keen on absorbing these technologies to provide the student with an experience of what they actually study rather than just having an explanation of it. The technology is still in the evolving stage and also the cost of the headsets is high to be affordable by everyone and the cheaper headsets need powerful phones to support them. For a classroom, just a central device with a […]
At Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017, which took place in Las Vegas earlier this month, the attendees were talking extensively about smart home. There is a growing consensus among people that Internet of Things devices are expected to dominate the technology landscape completely in future among which smart home will top the list. Until now the concept of Internet of Things was not that popular among people because all they could make out from it was connected devices. However, most of the people had no idea how these connected devices actually work and how investing in such products can prove to be beneficial to them. But as more and more advanced devices are getting introduced in the market with each passing day, the concept of IoT is becoming clear among them. According to reports, Internet of Things is becoming more real and acceptable with Smart Home. In fact, it’s the first IoT category to hit the maturity when compared to connected devices used in industrial, automotive, medical, and educational sectors. By incorporating machine learning and artificial intelligence in IoT devices, their ability to serve the people have increased multiple times. A lot of things which used to be just impossible […]
BY NERMIN HAJDARBEGOVIC – TECHNICAL EDITOR @ TOPTAL #InternetOfThings #IoT #IoTSecurity The Internet of Things (IoT) has been an industry buzzword for years, but sluggish development and limited commercialization have led some industry watchers to start calling it the “Internet of NoThings”. Double puns aside, IoT development is in trouble. Aside from spawning geeky jokes unfit for most social occasions, the hype did not help; and, in fact, I believe it actually caused a lot more harm than good. There are a few problems with IoT, but all the positive coverage and baseless hype are one we could do without. The upside of generating more attention is clear: more investment, more VC funding, more consumer interest. However, these come with an added level of scrutiny, which has made a number of shortcomings painfully obvious. After a couple of years of bullish forecasts and big promises, IoT security seems to be the biggest concern. The first few weeks of 2015 were not kind to this emerging industry, and most of the negative press revolved around security. Was it justified? Was it just “fear, uncertainty and doubt” (FUD), brought about by years of hype? It was a bit of both; although some […]
