Would you? Would you pay a small amount of money if it meant content would get better, if it meant you would get more good content? Would you reconsider the concept that content is free and ad supported? What is the value you would place on a good article or video? Do you want to support the authors and publishers who bring you that content? I do, and I’m hoping I’m not alone. I clicked on a news story yesterday because the headline intrigued me. It turned out that the headline was incredibly misleading and the article was garbage, but I had already rewarded the author and publisher. They got their page view. They got their ad revenue. Plenty of others will share that headline on Facebook and Twitter without even reading the article and it will go viral. It will generate enough clicks to be profitable. Horrible journalism will be rewarded and these parties will be funded to put out their next piece of muck. I am left wondering. “How can I make it more profitable to write good articles with good headlines? How can I fund those who work hard to bring me good content, but don’t receive […]
Pari Smart Toys, capable of giving digital hugs, are now available in the market. With regards to scientific facts, studies that show unlimited hugs and human’s natural need for body contact, specifically, are apparent at all levels of development. The sad truth today is that most people have busy lives that they don’t actually care about regular contacts with loved ones because they tend to work and to travel often times without the companion of children. First seen at CES 2017, Pari of Parihug, wishes to cut the space by making digital hugs that exactly feel realistic. These lovable smart toys were launched in April, 2017. Pari was developed by Xyla Foxlin, a twenty year old electrical engineer. This is a soft, gray-colored huggable stuffed animal toy that is like hugging you back. Pari has a built-in sensor of pressure especially to telegraph the contact or the hug made. Foxlin said that this device is more effective and affective than a message or call from home. This device is also cited to be internet-connected which will help the working parents to be always connected with their children in a way that is more physical like. It could also solve longing of couples with the […]
These days, competitors of Apple edge ahead when it comes to Augmented Reality product innovation and they have already sites on their grounds to make up. Since Apple is always been one of the best makers of premium products. Its latest innovation iPhone was not exactly contemplated as edge cutter and its closest rival Samsung has released a while back with more advanced introduced technology. Few stakeholders are worried about Apple’s next discovery and it is the is the reason why Apple is taking its big leap into Augmented Reality progression. Tim Cook has tackled about having huge games for introducing latest technologies like AI and driverless cars as he taken charges as chief executive in 2011. In the circle of technology, AR is the most exceptionally exciting for Cook and that he believes it has a bright future. Cook said, he foresees having AR experiences everyday just as well as people eat everyday. This project was developed to become a great part of all users. Apple has formed a group of hardware and software experts within the company in order to regain the spotlight of being the leading product developer. Apple was accompanied by very well and competent outside talents […]
It’s natural for designers to want to create apps that will disrupt the world order. Everyone wants to come up with the next big thing. But starting a project with the singular goal of disrupting the market is quite a weight to carry. So instead, why not start specifically on the low end of the market? Rather than aiming to make the perfect app that will be the go-to choice for X, Y, or Z, why not make a fun app that will bring people in through the guise of simple entertainment and build up from there? In apps, the next big thing is almost always initially dismissed as a toy. This is the realization that Chris Dixon had a few years back, and he couldn’t be more right. Dixon talks about Clay Christensen’s disruptive innovation theory. According to the theory, technologies that take root at the bottom of the marketplace are the ones most capable of quickly exceeding user expectations and ultimately disrupting entire market segments. In other words, if you want to change the world, make a toy. Why Startups Fail Nine out of ten startups fail. Designing an app with the express intent of disrupting the market […]
More and more companies try to get a market share in Augmented and Mixed Reality. Recently it’s Snapchat which showed his vision with world lenses or Facebook with future platform’s AR studio. And since Apple bought Metaio company, it’s almost sure, it is going to publish AR, MR softwares and hardwares. So it’s an evidence that AR, MR will have an important place in the future. However these companies will have need developers to give a sense to the AR and MR and show that can be used in lot of fields like education or medicine and not only video games. So I decided also to work on an AR project. It’s an app named GARnie and it works with Android phones having a gyroscope. The purpose of this app is to create 3d scenes using real environments and virtual elements. Today, you can add your own obj file, but I hope soon you could add anyone formats like fbx, or dae and make interactions similar to models animated which are by default in the app. With this app, you can add your 3d model everyone in the scene on a vertical and horizontal plane, without to use markers. Currently […]
Despite some rough years, the automotive industry is still one of the most important economic sectors. Car manufacturers are continuously trying to put the current technologies to use in order to deliver the best vehicles. Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technology is advancing rapidly as computers are becoming more powerful. The market of AR/VR has already become a billion-dollar market and it’s projected to keep growing well beyond a $120 billion market within a few years. At the low-end of the VR market, Google blogged that their Cardboard has already shipped over 10 million units. It upgrades one’s smartphone to a VR viewer. They also distributed over 160 million apps for them. That’s not all, though, since third-party solutions are available as well. As for the more complete commercial products, Sony reported that almost a million units of their Playstation VR headset were sold. And then there’s the automotive industry. We already laid out the growing market of app development for Car Infotainment Systems which is projected to exceed $35 billion by the end of the decade. With AR/VR becoming more mainstream, developers can also start moving it into your car. Creative minds will have an opportunity to […]
Levi’s smart jacket that’s encapsulated with Google’s Jacquard technology has the goal to provide practical purpose to wearables. Together they make up to take the innovation of the product and widen its potential in the market. The partnership envisions that the future for wearable technology in the fashion industry is going to be more about smart clothing. Google said that Jacquard can make it to blend touch and gesture interactions into any textile that uses standard and industrial approaches. Even clothes and furniture can easily be transformed into interactive surfaces. A trucker jacket was established as the starter consumer product of the partnership between Levi’s and Google and was set to be out in the market by September 2017. Ivan Poupyrev, Jacquard’s leader for Google’s ATAP group and Paul Dillinger, Levi’s head for global product innovation, kicked off the roadshow to promote their $350 machine washable jacket at the 2017 Southwest Interactive festival in Austin, Texas. The user is allowed to take control of a phone through a patch of fabric on the left sleeve cuff. A dongle, coded as “Jacquard Tag” is attached into the sleeve to provide connections between the phone and the sleeve. The user can receive […]

As a remedy, she had been doing yoga to help her improve her health and cope up with her depression. Yoga has helped her and eventually encouraged her to become an instructor. Overwhelmed, Wu decided to make something very enthusiastic. She made a smart sports bra where in it could help her achieve the benefits of doing exercises even off the mat and named it Vitali. This device is equipped with intelligent wearable technology. It is attached with sensors that measure the vital signs like the heart rate variability. HRV is the key indicator of stress. The device is made with flexible fabric sensors which monitors chest’s movements. Vitali’s reasonable notes: Specifically created for women.

How Vitali functions: The device has an electronics that are centralized in a “gem”, which is a stone-looking device. The gem can […]
During the course of my career, I’ve participated in multiple real life software projects and observed how things are done on all levels: decision making, practices adoption, team building, recruiting, skill distribution, etc. Obviously, different approaches yielded different results. Being an improvement-oriented type of person, I noticed and collected the most effective practices and best practical tricks to help me up in my work. Learning from observation is a hard and lengthy way to do it. I would be extremely happy to pick this knowledge earlier from books instead. Unfortunately, I found none on the topic. So I decided to share my experience with other seekers of this kind of knowledge. Hopefully, it’ll save them few years of personal research. In this article, you will learn how you can beat the average industry performance by producing sturdy and reliable software products that require 5-10 times less maintenance. I can say without false modesty that in the past 10-15 years, I (personally as well as my teams) have exceeded all expectations, leaving a trail of successes behind. Managers cannot be happier. Once my team pulled up an important project in an impossibly short time frame, for which we were given a […]
A fitness tracker has more to offer beyond casting off weights. It collects data from your body stretching out to the point of saving your life. The fitness tracker is actually more useful than you think it is. Reports of cases where Fitbit performed it’s saving of life: Patricia Lauder, 73 Years of age, from Connecticut, USA. Fitbit data was noticed as recording an abnormally heart rate resting high pointing of above 140 beats per minute which indicates a considerably higher than her normal 60 to 70. Lauder had already been to her doctor following a current infection on her sinus and was waiting for the results. The result was quite alarming that Lauder has called 911 for her to be sent to the emergency ward. She was then scanned at the hospital and results showed that there were blood clots in both of her lungs. This circumstance drafted her heart to work harder and recoup for her low oxygen levels. Being disregarded, the bulky clot is potentially dangerous because it stops the flow of blood towards the lungs. 24 hours after the treatment, her lungs and heart has returned to its normal performance as there was no longer a blood clot […]
