Nowadays augmented reality (a technology that helps in placing computer generated virtual objects in the real world in order to elevate users understanding about it) is gaining tremendous attention from researchers across the world. One such group of researchers is from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, which believes that augmented reality has huge scope in human life. Researchers based at Hong Kong University say that as far as augmented reality is concerned people will make use of hand gestures in the next two years when it comes to dealing with computers or operating them. Considering the fact that globally famous tech giants like Google and Microsoft are working tremendously towards the development of their own augmented reality headsets, this futuristic technology is definitely going to play an extensive role in shaping the future of people in terms of how they connect with the world and deal with the information around them. According to a report, while talking about the significance of AR, professor Hui Pan (who is leading the team of researchers) from Hong Kong university said that “AR is a big thing because it breaks through the space we are physically in.” “The personalized information in the […]
The multinational conglomerate which is responsible for providing the MULTI elevator system is trying its hands in the field of virtual reality by implementing Microsoft’s Hololens wherein the engineers and technicians will be benefited from the minimized delays and matchless workflow. Implementing cloud computing and digital IoT solutions with an augmented reality, the software and engineering giants of ThyssenKrupp elevator have come up with a solution dubbed MAX. MAX foresees the repairs and component replacements in the real-time and notifies the same to the experts before they arise. With the progressively growing taller buildings, it is becoming harder to meet the day-to-day standards. For example, it is indeed to be a considered that how people will get from the ground floor to the 100th floor in a reasonable amount of time. MAX provides visualizations from all the angles and scale to inform decisions, historical timelines of elevator malfunctions, and voice-activated video conferences to coordinate a “plan of attack”, which will be dramatical in driving the technical developments for seamless elevator rides. The collaboration of ThyssenKrupp and Microsoft is empowering the service engineers in doing their jobs safer and more efficiently. Having Skype on thyssenKrupp, the technicians can efficiently and freely […]
The Canada-based wearable technology company Thalmic Labs has raised a fund of $120 (USD) million contributed by the popular brands like Amazon Alexa Fund, and Fidelity Investments Canada. Thalmic Labs is popularly known for its Myo armband which is a gesture-and-motion-guided armband. This armband accelerates the electricity in your muscles which will, in turn, enable you to control devices like drones, computers, smartphones, and other gadgets with built-in wireless connectivity. Previously, Thalmic had raised $20 million, which was arrived through its series back in 2013. Stephen Lake, CEO, and co-founder of Thalmic Labs said that they are still in the process of inventing new gadgets with the underlying technologies and putting in efforts to bring them to the real world. He further added that the investment made will be used to fund the projects that are underlying the line and these projects will produce such products that will help them realize their vision of a new era of computing, where the real and the digital worlds will seamlessly blend with each other. Also, the company has employed 100 people which are expected to rise to 200 dramatically which is been conveyed by Mike Galbraith, the Kitchener’s startup’s chief financial officer. […]
With the increasing use of technology, everything around us is changing for the betterment and so do our lives. Our lives have started getting dependent on technologies around us taking place in every sector of life. Agriculture is the most affecting field in our life, as we all depend on the food (vegetables and grains) for our living. Now, with the demand for improving the production of vegetables and grains, it has been now introduced to the technology Internet of Things with an aim of increasing the agricultural production. The project undertaken in the agriculture with IoT is termed as “Precision Farming”. The goal of undertaking this project was to fulfill the challenge of rapidly increasing the agricultural production. Precision farming helps the farmers to deal with many of the issues related to the agriculture like water shortage, shortage or a limited availability of land for growing crops, and much more. Also, it influences the costs of the crops and fertilizers. Agriculture has always been a risky economic affair for the farmers, wherein most of the times, farmers face lots of challenges and also they face loss due to uncertain climatic conditions. Precision farming implements IoT to increase the yields […]
The Internet of Things has taken a fast pace in many fields especially in the field of healthcare for improving the healthcare facilities and bettering the health of patients with chronic diseases. This technology has brought drastic changes in dealing with the overall healthcare of the people. Now, IoT is taking place in dealing with patients of dementia. For this purpose, Surrey and Borders have come to a partnership with a trust called NHS Foundation Trust which will be bringing IoT to help the patients suffering from dementia. This trust will recruit 1400 volunteers who will implement the IoT technology to help improve the life of the people suffering from dementia as well as those of their carers. They will recruit 12000 people with type1 and type2 diabetes who will be able to monitor and manage their conditions using wearable technologies and smartphones. The project will demonstrate a “test bed” to show the use of network-enabled devices like monitors, robotics, and wearables which will provide a better healthcare for the older people in their home’s comfort zone. This will, in turn, benefit the carers also as they will be able to monitor the behavior of the person they are caring […]
Virtual Reality has taken over almost every field and sector and has greatly influenced our lives in every manner to enhance an immersive experienced living with the technology. With no exception, it has recently stepped into the Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody video.The world famous guitarist and the director of the London Stereoscopic Company holding a Ph.D in astronomy. Brian May is a fan of virtual reality and has also designed his own mobile VR glasses. He has come up with his new venture in the virtual reality called The Bohemian Rhapsody Experience in collaboration with Queen, Google Play, and Studio Enosis VR. Brian May at his own event released this experience on Android and it will be coming soon on iOS. This app is described by Google as “a journey through frontman Freddie Mercury’s subconscious mind”. This video can by watched by the viewers with the help of a Cardboard headset, or also can use a flat screen into the world of the video at 360-degree mode. The viewers can get the experience of different shapes, sound, and animations through the app and then they are taken onto the stage of the Queen Concert, with an animated band and with all […]

At time, when wearable technology remains the talk of the town, researchers from the North Carolina State University or NCSU have come up with a stunning new wearable prototype which uses body heat to generate electricity. The technology developed by NCSU researchers is highly comfortable, truly lightweight and way too productive when compared to existing thermoelectric generators. Earlier, the energy generated from the movement called the Kinetic energy used to be utilized by military personals in battlefields when it comes to charging batteries. In addition to that, thermoelectric generators or TEGs were also used when it comes to powering wearable devices and flashlights. Thermoelectric generators are highly important for human beings as they use body heat to generate electricity. Wearable that harvest energy from body heat increases the productivity as far as electricity generation is concerned. In order to perform effectively, thermoelectric generators have to harness the temperate difference between users’ skin and air surrounding them. The researchers from NCSU have used their tech into armbands as well as t-shirts after identifying the right location for harvesting heat from the body. According to a report, the study’s co-author Daryoosh Vashaee gave a statement saying that “Previous approaches either made use […]
