Le Chal, World’s First Smart Shoes

Wearable gadgets are no longer limited to smartwatch and smartband alone. A pair of researchers at the MIT Media Lab announced the discovery that a smartshoes. Smart footwear is also claimed to help users reach their destination with the help of GPS.

Smartshoes named Le Chal or which means ‘Let’s go’ this must be connected to a smartphone in its use. This is because Le Chal need ‘guidance’ of applications that connect to the GPS on smartphones.

So when Le Chal and smartphones have been interconnected, armed with the default application users can specify the objectives to be achieved. Furthermore, at the foot of Le Chal users will inform the direction or turn that must be overcome by providing a small vibration. Shoes left to turn left and right shoes for the right turn.

When approaching the destination, the intensity would be more frequent in the second part of the shoe. Creator, Anirudh Sharma and small vibration Krispian Lawrence calls issued Le Chal will not give any adverse effects on users.

Although it is not really intended for people with disabilities such as visual impairment, tiller give discounts for the disabled. When ordinary users are required to spend $ 100, then disabilities can sign him with the tag of USD 40 to USD 50.

Google: Android, OS successful Throughout History

It is undeniable that Android is an operating system that dominate the market today. With a positive note, Google also claimed as the most successful OS in history.

“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.

Creator Need for Speed: Rivals Fired

Electronic Arts (EA) apparently is conducting a massive saving. The proof, the studio that just spawned variants instead closure of Need for Speed.

fired

Need for Speed: Rivals developed by Ghost Game, one of the studio under the EA in the UK. The developer has just taken over the development of the NFS series of hand Criterion Games.

Initially, Ghost Game is asked EA to continue to develop the NFS series, but without much reason the studio is actually closed. Though his work has just been released. Most employees will be sent home.

For potential employees, EA offered another position in Visceral, which is a studio that has been developing Dead Space. The studio reportedly being made another shooting game, titled Havana, so are in need of other resources.

No mention exactly how many employees were discharged EA, but due to the layoff NFS series seems to be absent in 2014. .

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.

Designed to give a traditional data center virtualization technology which at the same time Red Hat continues to compile against OpenStack technology, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization enables companies to deploy traditional and elastic workloads on their existing infrastructure without affecting the level of service, performance or scalability.

The latest version of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization allows customers to use a set of services OpenStack (Compute, Storage and Network) that can be used by their datacenter virtualization platform via the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, as well as their private cloud via the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.

With a cohesive environment between Private Cloud and data center, various companies claimed now able to deploy traditional workloads and elastic without having to duplicate the infrastructure layer.

The latest release of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization includes several features of infrastructure, network and storage to increase developer portability across heterogeneous cloud environments, including:

-. The new self-hosted machine, allowing the implementation of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager as a virtual machine on the host, reducing hardware requirements;

-. Back-up and restore API integration now includes a new backup infrastructure that provides a broad set of APIs for third-party software vendors to perform backup and restore to their virtual machines.

-. Support for OpenStack OpenStack Glance and Neutron, which allows users to store their virtual machine templates and allows configuration of advanced network infrastructure that can be shared between the private cloud and datacenter virtualization.

Radhesh Balakrishnan, General Manager of Virtualization & OpenStack Red Hat said, improvements of Red Hat KVM hypervisor consistent to open and offers simultaneously virtualization management now enable more customers to take control of their data centers and build individual path to cloud infrastructure personal.

With the new addition to third-party plug-ins offered by Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3, this offers the fundamental core for bargains OpenStack cloud supported Red Hat.

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!
