you still don’t understand? then see these below:

 

 

bracelet 04

I think you should understand by now……………

The above images shows a gadget invented far back 2014(has not been produced, need donors), this gadget has you can see is like a mobile phone(Android), portable to the extent of using on someone’s arm it’s called CIRCRET BRACELET, the bracelet is it’s engine, read below to know the gadget full specs….

On October 30, 2014, a French company called Cicret published a video on YouTube that immediately went viral, garnering 6.2 million views and counting. What was the fuss about?

Apparently a wearable called the “Cicret Bracelet,” an orange, waterproof wearable able to project the image of a smartphone’s UI on a wrist, transferring the same response of a touch screen, turning the experience into “touch skin.”

But how much of the video is real? Take a look yourself, then read on for more details from our conversation with Cicret’s co-founder, Guillaume Pommier.

AW: Your product is really gaining a lot of traction. What is the history of Cicret and where did it all begin? What’s been going on lately?

GP: In the origins, it was just my father and I. I am only 25 [years old] and we have a very strong bond, spending most our free time together building applications, or books, or whatever. We’ve been working on the Cicret Bracelet for more than one year now, but we’ve been working on the Cicret application for many years.

We always knew that together the Cicret Bracelet would be well received, so it’s kind of a dream, and we have to stay very calm. I have, today, 5,000 unread e-mails in my inbox, but unfortunately, I don’t have enough time in one day to answer them all.

We have a lot of investors interested, and we’re continuing working on our prototype as well as work with our producer of components here in France.

I have the feeling of not sleeping for one month.

AW: How do you pronounce “Cicret”?

GP: Like “secret.”

AW: Is the video a real prototype being shown or is it a simulation?

GP: It’s a demonstration showing how the Cicret Bracelet will work. We don’t have all the final components in the video demonstration, and now, before last week, we know that the prototype that we’ll have next year will be 90% of what was shown on the video. The partnership we have with our component company says we can make the bracelet, though it might be twice as big as the bracelet shown in the video, about the size of a watch.

AW: How does the projected interface react to touch?

GP: When you use your finger you interact with a long-range proximity sensor, it’s a laser that goes straight and intercepts your finger, capturing its movements, and sending it back to your phone. The long-range proximity sensor is similar to when you try to take a picture with your smartphone in that it recognizes the range of the object you’re focusing on. This technology is combined with a Pico projector.

AW: Is it scary to think you may be a competitor to Google Glass?

GP: We can’t be scared because we have so much luck with this. We’re a small business.

AW: What type of investments are you getting? To what scale?

GP: We have distributors – people from all over the world from the US to Belgium. I don’t know how much e-mail we got last week, but it was about 1,500 from guys who said, “I want to be an investor.” And we have big companies who want to meet us in Paris to see if the prototype is working. We also have other big companies asking, “How can we be partners?” in making software for the Cicret Bracelet. We are a small team, but we’re going fast, and we have luck to be distributed by the people watching our video.

AW: What’s the expected battery life?

GP: It depends on how many functions you’re using, but if you’re not constantly putting a strain on the Cicret Bracelet, I think it’ll be around 24 hours.

AW: Will your finger distort the projected image displayed on your wrist?

GP: We’re working on multiple ways to assure that the Pico projector isn’t disturbed by one’s fingers, like putting the projector very close to the skin and the proximity laser above it. I know that for the engineering department it isn’t an issue.

AW: Will there be any monthly fees or extra charges?

GP: No, we’re not that kind of business.

AW: Is it open source?

GP: Yes, we plan on making it open source for developers interested in making their own apps.

AW: What’s the future of Cicret?

GP: We have an ambitious idea that will be way more incredible than the Cicret Bracelet. For now, we’ll be focusing on our Cicret Bracelet. We are already working on the next thing to come.

AW: Anything else you want to say to the millions of people interested in your creation? People who look up to you?

GP: If you have an idea, you need to make it real. Life is too short. Just try it. People can’t insult you if you’re trying. If it’s working, it’s for you. This is what I believe.

The waterproof bracelet is in pre-production with a protoype in the works, however the company intends to release the final product globally in 2015 for €300 ($365, £234, AU$450) to €400 ($487, £313, AU$600) due to Pommier seeing high demand across the world.

The wearable is also priced far lower than Google Glass because Pommier states “I want the bracelet to be available for everyone.” He also notes the team has partnered with component manufacturers to get fair prices for parts in order to make the product affordable.

The Cicret Bracelet seems like such an ambitious endeavor that it’s hard to believe it will stay on track to release next year. Perhaps the bracelet will simply become another blip in technology history, or maybe it will significantly impact the future of wearable tech. Regardless, our interest has been piqued, and we’re curious to see what the final wearable will be like.

2015′ Scientific and Technological inventions

Inventions so far from January 2015 till date

invention

 

 

Analysts predict that the latest technology inventions in cloud computing will significantly influence how we use our computers and mobile devices.

Cloud computing is where tasks and file storage on your computer are performed and stored elsewhere.

By using an internet connection you can connect to a service that has the architecture, infrastructure and software to manage any task or storage requirement at less cost.

The advantages of cloud computing is that it eliminates the difficulty and expense of maintaining, upgrading and scaling your own computer hardware and software while increasing efficiency, speed and resources.

Your computer’s processing speed, memory capacity, software applications and maintenance requirements are minimized.

You could store and access any size or type of file, play games, use or develop applications, render videos, word process, make scientific calculations, or anything you want, by simply using a smart phone.

As a comparison, let’s say you had to generate your own electricity. You would need to maintain, upgrade and scale these resources as required to meet your demands. This would be expensive and time consuming.

Cloud computing could be compared to how a utility provides electricity. It has the architecture, infrastructure, applications, expertise and resources to generate this service for you. You just connect to their grid.

Microsoft, IBM and Google are some of the companies that are investing heavily into the research and development of cloud technology. Read more…Cloud Computing

3D Printed Car

image of Strati 3d printer carThe latest technology inventions in 3d printing are rapidly changing how things are being made.

It’s an emerging technology that is an alternative to the traditional tooling and machining processes used in manufacturing.

At the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago, a little known Arizona-based car maker created a media sensation by manufacturing a car at the show.

It was a full scale, fully functional car that was 3d printed in 44 hours and assembled in 2 days. The video below shows the car being made.

 

 

 

 

The car is called a “Strati”, Italian for layers, so named by it’s automotive designer Michele Anoè because the entire structure of the car is made from layers of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (A.B.S.) with reinforced carbon fiber into a single unit.

The average car has more than 20,000 parts but this latest technology reduces the number of parts to 40 including all the mechanical components.

“The goal here is to get the number of parts down, and to drop the tooling costs to almost zero.” said John B. Rogers Jr., chief executive of Local Motors, a Princeton and Harvard-educated U.S. Marine.

“Cars are ridiculously complex,“ he added, referring to the thousands of bits and pieces that are sourced, assembled and connected to make a vehicle.

“It’s potentially a huge deal,” said Jay Baron, president of the Center for Automotive Research, noting that the material science and technology used by Local Motors is derived from their partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge,Tennessee.

This technology can use a variety of metal, plastic or composite materials to manufacture anything in intricate detail.

People tend to want what they want, when they want it, where they want it, and how they want it, which makes this technology disruptive in the same way digital technologies used by companies like Amazon and Apple disrupted newspaper, book and music publishers.

Imagine if you could customize and personalize your new car online and pick it up or have it delivered to you the next day at a fraction of the cost of buying one from a dealership?

What if you could make a fender for a Porsche, or a tail light for a Honda, for a fraction of the cost of buying from a parts supplier? How revolutionary would that be for the automotive industry?

It’s already happening.

Jay Leno, the former Tonight Show Host and avid car enthusiast is famous for his collection of vintage automobiles.

One of the challenges with collecting antique cars is replacing parts. You can’t buy them because they’re obsolete and having a machinist tool the part doesn’t always work and often requires costly modifications until the part fits.

So Leno uses 3d printing technology to make parts for his cars. “These incredible devices allow you to make the form you need to create almost any part”, says Leno.

John B. Rogers Jr. believes that in the near future a car will be made in just 60 minutes.

The company is already organizing a worldwide network of “Microfactories” where you can order and pickup your personalized, customized car.

Car Gps Tracking

Car Gps Tracking is fairly common in new vehicles, providing drivers with tracking and navigation.

However, latest technology inventions have made car gps tracking systems more sophisticated, allowing for a wide range of additional uses.

Smartbox technology is one example of how car gps tracking systems are being used to lower car insurance.

A comprehensive recording of a driver’s habits allows insurance companies to provide “pay-as-you-drive” car insurance.

City officials in New York City are considering how car gps tracking could be used as “Drive Smart” technology.

Most large cities have a limited capability to change the infrastructure of their roadways.

A car gps tracking system that integrates with traffic information would give drivers the ability to select routes in real time that were more fuel efficient, less congested, faster or shorter.

A driver’s recorded routing selection could then be used to penalize or reward drivers by lowering or increasing their related licensing fees or by calculating mileage based “road-use” fees.

Eventually, such a system would replace gasoline tax since these revenues will decline as more vehicles become less dependent on fossil fuels.

Air Into Water

image of a fresh water generatorJohathan Ritchey has invented the Watermill, which is an atmospheric water generator. It converts air into fresh water.

This latest technology invention produces fresh water at a cost of about 3 cents a liter (1 quart). Originally designed for areas that do not have clean drinking water, the Watermill is for households that prefer an eco-friendly, cost effective alternative to bottled water.

Atmospheric water generators convert air into water when the temperature of the air becomes saturated with enough water vapor that it begins to condense (dew point).

“What is unique about the Watermill is that it has intelligence,” says Ritche. This makes the appliance more efficient. It samples the air every 3 minutes to determine the most efficient time to convert the air into water.

It will also tell you when to change the carbon filter and will shut itself off if it cannot make pure clean water.

Vein Identification

It works by identifying the vein pattern in the palms of our hands.

Similar to our fingerprints, vein patterns are unique to each individual. The purported advantages of this technology is that it is less expensive, easier to manage, and is more reliable than traditional methods of identification.

image of a high speed drill

A new motor developed by researchers at ETH Zurich’s Department of Power Electronics and marketed by the Swiss company, Celeroton, can spin in excess of 1 million revolutions per minute.

As a comparison, collapsed stars spin at 60,000 rpms, a blender at about 30,000 and high performance engines at around 10,000 rpms.

The matchbook-sized motor has a titatnium shell, ultra-thin wiring and a trade secret iron formulated cylinder. The need for smaller electronic devices requires smaller holes, which means smaller, faster, more efficient drills.

A House that Walks

A new prototype house walked around the campus of the Wysing Arts Centre in Cambridgeshire, England.

The eco-friendly house is powered by solar cells and minature windmills, and comes with a kitchen, a composting toilet, a system for collecting rain water, one bed, a wood stove for CO2 neutral heating, a rear opening that forms a stairway entrance, and six legs.

image of a waling house A collaborative effort between MIT and the Danish design collective N55, the house walks about five kilometers an hour similar to the walking speed of a human.

The legs reguire a software algorithm to calculate the movement and position of the legs to provide stability over varying terrain.

The house can turn, move forward or backwards, or change height as required and can be programmed with GPS waypoints for traveling to destinations.
