Samsung Prepare Gear Solo, Android SmartWatch Independent

After launching Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, innovation smartwatch Samsung is not going to stop. South Korean manufacturer is reportedly working on another variant hours Gear smart this time called to operate independently.

Independent here means no longer depend on other Android devices such as the case variants of the Galaxy Gear is now circulating. So later smartwatch which supposedly carries the name of Solo Gear is going to be operated like an Android phone.

So far in, i information about Gear Solo is still very minimal. The gossip was limited to the presence of a SIM card slot and able to make calls or receive calls independently or from the connected Android device.

This means that in addition can be operated independently, Gear Solo seems also can connect with Android phones. Similar to that offered by the current variants of the Galaxy Gear.

Although the news about Gear Solo is still very new, there was a possibility Samsung will announce its existence in a time not too long.

That is because it is not difficult for Samsung if you want to immerse the Android OS with a full feature in Gear Solo. Moreover, the hardware Samsung already has a ‘stock’ of a variant of the Galaxy Gear hers today. By design can be Gear Solo also will carry a form that is not much different from its variant smartwatch existing

With Cover, users can access a number of applications and peek a little information directly from their screen is locked.

“Twitter, as well Cover, convinced of the potential of Android that was awesome. They had the same vision with us, the smartphone can be smarter, even more useful and more contextual. Together with Twitter, we can realize it, wrote Cover The website team they are.

It is not explained clearly, what will be done by acquiring Cover Twitter. But as is known, social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter, are highly dependent on advertising revenue personalized, continue to make their services more integrated into, especially with Android devices.

Openness and flexibility of Android, making third-party applications may utilize very important parts such as the lockscreen or notification in Android to promote their services and content.

Facebook for example, last year released a Home, a kind of Android launcher with a unique user interface. Here, the user can view content and services up directly on the home screen them. Unfortunately, welcome to Facebook Home not so good.

Speculation, so Twitter can also be used to cover the same purpose as Facebook Home. By acquiring Cover, Twitter possibility would create a sort of ‘Twitter for Android launcher’ and make tweets and Twitter messages can be accessed directly on the lockscreen. According To You?

“I think Android is the fastest and most successful in the world in the history of the operating system,” said Nikesh Arora, Google’s Senior Vice President.

“There is no one who can predict the adoption of the operating system in the industry, because many different OEMs, and a lot of manufacturing, and manufacturing different around the world,” he added.

All reports is agreed, that the current iOS and Android chase each other in terms of number of users.

Even in 2012, Android and iOS shot 10 times faster than the PC when compared with PC penetration in fact continued to slow.

At the end of 2012 alone, Android’s market share has reached 53.4%. While iOS with the same range can shot up to 34.3%.

Projected Mode, Android First Step in Automotive

If Apple had CarPlay, Google also has Android is designed for four-wheeled vehicles. As a first step, born Projected Mode.

Projected Mode giant Google is believed to be a project to bring Android to the vehicle. It is also becoming strengthened to vacancies opened by Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz car manufacturer.

In a statement, the vacancy is looking for a programmer who is able to integrate the Android system in the car. So later on a vehicle head unit is expected to replace the role of a smartphone while driving.

The driver can make calls, send messages, and do other things just by the sound. No need to be bothered to punch a series of buttons.

In January 2014 and Google has worked with Audi, Honda and General Motors to create an organization called the Open Automotive Alliance (OAA). Well, the ‘Projected Mode’ allegedly a follow-up of the association.

Exciting Play Games Use Google Glass

Google Glass is made not for any serious work. Because in reality, this smart glasses can be made to have fun, play one of them.

As performed by the developers of Google, they showed how Google Glass can be used to play games. Through a short video on YouTube, look how exciting mini-games to play.

Yes, although just a simple game, but how to play the game of Google Glass was not serious. Because, like Augmented Reality-based games there are to play a two-way interaction.

The official video uploaded by developers Google. One goal for the game developers also enliven the experience of using these smart glasses.

The game shown is not the first made, but dedicated to the Google Glass This is the first time.

Google expects in the future there will be other games made specifically for smart glasses. Because Google will not only serve as a tool for work, but also able to play the game.

Potato Battery Could Be Resilient 3 Years

The sophistication of smart devices have not been matched by battery endurance. That is why, Creator gadgets were competing to make them durable battery device.

Well, the latest discovery from researchers at Virginia Tech University could be the solution. They achieved a breakthrough by using bio-energy from natural sugar substance, rather than chemicals such as Lithium batteries are common in gadgets.

Batteries with natural sugar energy sources claimed the researchers is ideal for use on mobile phones. In contrast to other energy such as bio Hydrogen and Methanol, sugar material arguably more secure because it is non-explosive or explosive and flammable.

“It is logical when we try to ‘harvest’ natural energy source with an environmentally friendly way, for use in the battery,” said Professor YH Percival .

Interestingly, this natural energy source obtained from starch in the daily diet, one potato. Zhang mentioned starch is broken down gradually using enzyme cascade.

In this way, the electrons with significant quality would appear to generate energy flow. Previously, there had been research on energy sources of sugar. This latest breakthrough, Zhang and his team claimed could produce significant energy.

“The method can now store 10 times more energy than the energy source with basic materials chemistry,” said Zhang.

The report, published in the scientific journal Nature Communications wrote, batteries made from potato starch can be used batteries powering up to three years in a single charge. Wow!
