Google glass…


Wow!  Just gone mad by knowing it’s potential. I was just surfing around and got a clear idea how it would transform this world.I really felt like I was in some science fiction film! I just wanna give you a rough glimpse of it….Tighten your seat belts mates! Itz really gonna blow off your mind….

Hands-free gaming:

The coolest games for wearable AR apps will probably involve glasses that cover the whole eye, or a contact-lens-style display that covers one or both eyes. But Google Glass might provide a view that augments a multiplayer “reality game” played on the street or in a forest.

Seeing your friends:

Seeing friends!

You go to an amusement park with a group of friends. People are everywhere. You and your friends decide to split up and go your separate ways, but you all want to meet up again later.

If your friends voluntarily share their locations, AR glasses could use GPS, Wi-Fi, and cellular networks to track everyone’s location and display each one in the glasses. Those locations could appear on a “view from above” map, or as silhouettes at ground level (if they are separated from the viewer by one or more walls). The glasses could also identify your friends in a crowd.

Translation:

Wow!

The microphone on the glasses would be able to hear what is being said to you, and then translate it into English on the lens. It could even speak it as English into the glasses’ earpiece. Responding with the right words is a little more difficult. You would have to speak your response into the microphone on the glasses, and then let the servers display the words in French on the display, at which point you’d speak the words in French.

Medical emergencies:

Such an app would display simple instructions on the screen and voice it in the earpiece of the glasses. The program might use the camera to help the wearer zero in on the right place to position the heel of the hand on the victim’s chest before starting compressions. The app would watch the user’s actions and advise the wearer when to switch from giving breath to doing chest compressions.

Travel information:

With Google Glass you could use voice commands to pull up travel information on the lens. The content could be anything from ground transportation data to flight numbers to rooms available in hotels at your destination.During travel, you may be moving through places that are completely foreign to you. Navigating through large airports or subway systems (try Tokyo’s!) can be daunting, especially when the signage is in a foreign language. The glasses could translate all the signs and give you step-by-step directions, with routes and landmarks overlaid on your field of vision. With everything decoded, the unfamiliar environment would seem more welcoming, and your stress level would go down.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Directions:

A Wi-Fi signal locator and speed measurement app would place a Wi-Fi icon next to the base stations within the wearer’s field of vision, and the icon would grow larger or smaller depending on the strength of the signal being transmitted.

______________________________________________________________________________________

History of places:

Content can become a hundred times more meaningful when presented over the real-world thing it relates to.You can also move a slider up and down a timeline to see photos from specific time periods.If such content were retrofitted to display on the glasses, it might truly come alive. As you walked around the city wearing the glasses, historical pictures of specific places you were seeing through the lens could appear. You could fix your eye on the steps of City Hall, and then use the slider to go back in time to superimpose older and older pictures of the scene, watching the ghosts of the past come into view and depart again.

Nutrition and shopping:

I specifically love this! 😛

You could port the nutrition information to a dieting site (like Weightwatchers) and/or an exercise site. You’d then immediately know how much of the food you could eat while adhering to the rules of your diet, and how much exercise you’d have to do to work off one serving of the food.  Knowing the nutrition, dieting, and fitness aspects of the food you were looking at would help you make better-informed decisions about what and how much to buy.

A Biometric bracelet recognizes it’s wearer just by the electrical impedance!


It’s a device that measures someone’s unique response to a weak electric signal could let medical devices such as blood-pressure cuffs automatically identify the wearer and send measurements straight to his or her electronic medical record.

This is how it works:

One electrode on the device sends an alternating current through its wearer’s wrist to a second electrode. While the current is passing through the wrist, the electrodes detect the wrist’s resistance and reactivity, which are components of impedance. A processor extracted seven features from the electrode pattern, and the team then used a series of five readings per user to train the processor to recognize a given user’s bioimpedance profile.

Tech flops this year!


Facebook IPO:

Facebook went public on May 18, 2012, with the price of a share initially set at $38. The company was valued at $104 billion–quite a bit for a company whose 2011 revenue just topped $3.7 billion–so it might not be surprising that the Facebook IPO sort of…flopped.. At this writing, a little more than two weeks later, Facebook shares were trading around $27 , down $11.10 from the opening price.

Path:

Smart phone based social network “Path” was rolling along pretty well until this February, when a developer discovered that the app was uploading users’ address book  to its servers without their explicit consent. Though Path was not the only app to upload names, email addresses, and/or phone numbers from users’ address books without the users’ express permission), the network’s road to forgiveness has been difficult.

Google Wallet:

Tech vendors have been talking up NFC (near-field communication) mobile payments for a while now. But it looks as though 2012 won’t be the year of the mobile payment system; consumers have been reluctant to adopt the payment method. Also, in February of this year, a blog described a troubling security flaw in Google’s NFC payment method, Google wallet. The vulnerability allowed anyone holding a rooted smartphone that was running Google Wallet to access the Google Wallet PIN and make purchases using the credit card tied to the NFC chip.

PlayStation Vita:

Sony’s anticipated Playstation Vita handheld gaming console debuted in the United States on February 22. Despite positive reviews, the Vita suffered a rough launch, prompting observers to wonder whether handheld gaming consoles are worth the extra money when smartphones have effectively become gaming machines.

LOK-IT secure flash drive


The LOK-IT is an encrypted flash drive that offers hardware authentication that renders it impervious to key loggers or other spyware. The secret passkey must first be keyed into the built-in number pad before plugging the LOK-IT into a USB slot, where it appears as a normal storage volume. Unplugging it automatically locks it, which is as fool-proof as you can get. Moreover, the LOK-IT is platform-independent and will work on any operating system and even office appliances such as scanners, projectors, and other mobile devices with USB OTG.
