Using a special 3D camera, a Tango equipped device looks at the world around it, and uses that information to map a space, add in augmented reality objects, or simply track the location of a mobile device.By building a memory of the world around it, the Tango device can recognize those spaces, and properly fit objects back into them.Several demos served to illustrate how well this worked.Turning on area learning produced entirely different results.Granted, it sometimes took a few seconds to re-identify the space around it, but once it did, the box popped right back up.Memory makes for better multiplayerArea learning really opens up the possibilities of VR and AR gaming with multiple users.
Beyond the great amount of tips, tricks, and tools you can use, it is important to learn the thought process and philosophy needed for anyone to consider himself a growth hacker.Just to clarify the concept, let s take a look first at what a growth hacker isn t myths , so then we can establish what he/she actually is.Growth hacking is the only option for startups to make it: Again, just like in the previous myth, we need to say, that it doesn t guarantee results and it is not the only way.Growth hacking is about acquiring new users: Actually, a real growth hacker knows that the best place to find growth is through existing users.As said in thecrunch.com, This curiosity leads to a grasp of product and user experience way beyond the surface.Growth hacking has worked so far with limited resources; without this predicament, the possibilities are immense.
Google has begun to build its own custom application-specific integrated circuit ASIC chip called tensor processing units TPUs , Google chief executive Sundar Pichai said today at the Google I/O developer conference in Mountain View, California.The name is inspired by Google s TensorFlow open source deep learning framework.When you use the Google Cloud Platform, you can take advantage of TPUs as well, Pichai said.Specialty hardware — sort of taking a cue from the holographic processing unit HPU inside Microsoft s HoloLens augmented reality headset — will not be the only thing that will make the Google public cloud stand out from market leader Amazon Web Services AWS .Also, over time Google will expose more and more machine learning APIs, Pichai said.Our goal is to lead the industry on machine learning and make that innovation available to our customers, Google distinguished hardware engineer Norm Jouppi wrote in a blog post.Building TPUs into our infrastructure stack will allow us to bring the power of Google to developers across software like TensorFlow and Cloud Machine Learning with advanced acceleration capabilities.Machine Learning is transforming how developers build intelligent applications that benefit customers and consumers, and we re excited to see the possibilities come to life.
Machine learning is an integral part of Google s strategy, powering many of the company s top applications.It s so important, in fact, that the search giant has been working behind closed doors for years developing its own custom solution to power its experiences.Norm Jouppi, a distinguished hardware engineer at Google, said they ve been running TPUs inside their data centers for more than a year now and have found them to deliver an order of magnitude better-optimized performance per watt when handling machine learning.From the first tested silicon, the engineer said they had them up and running applications at speed in data centers within 22 days.As companies like Apple can attest to, good things happen when both hardware and software are developed under one roof.Machine learning is transforming how developers build intelligent applications, he concluded, and they re excited to see the possibilities of it come to life.
New Delhi AP -- Apple CEO Tim Cook laid out his company's plans for the vast Indian market in a meeting Saturday with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who in turn sought Apple's support for his "Digital India" initiative focusing on e-education, health and increasing farmers' incomes.Modi and Cook also discussed cybersecurity and data encryption at their meeting in New Delhi, a government statement said.Modi suggested that Cook help the global community cope with the challenges of cybercrime.Cook, who arrived in India on Tuesday and is winding down his trip, spoke of the potential for the manufacturing and retailing of Apple products in India, and the possibilities for app development in the country, the statement said.Apple has just a 2 percent share of the smartphone market in India, one of the world's fastest-growing smartphone markets.Cook spoke about his visits to the Indian cities of Mumbai, Hyderabad and Kanpur and his meetings with business leaders, young people and Bollywood actors.In particular, he mentioned his visit to the Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai, and the cricket match he saw in the northern city of Kanpur, the statement said.Modi said that in India, "seeing is believing," and that Cook's experiences on his trip would help steer his business decisions.The prime minister explained his Digital India initiative to Cook, identifying its three key objectives as e-education, health and increasing farmers' incomes, the statement said, adding that Modi sought support from Apple in furthering the objectives.Digital India, a flagship program of Modi's government, attempts to transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy through the use of information technology.Cook told Modi that he appreciated the breadth of young talent in India, and that the country's youth have significant skills that Apple would like to tap, according to the statement.He also elaborated on the Map Development Centre that Apple Inc. is setting up in the southern city of Hyderabad, one of India's information technology hubs.Cook also said he appreciated Modi's initiatives for renewable energy.He said Apple runs on 93 percent renewable energy, and spoke of plans to move Apple's entire supply chain to renewable energy.
The company behind PortraitPro has set their sights on the horizon.Anthropics Technology recently announced the release of LandscapePro, a software designed to expand the possibilities of landscape photography without the advanced learning curve of programs like Photoshop.The software, available in both a basic mode and studio version with a Photoshop plugin and RAW support, includes basic presets, but since those are readily available with almost any photo editor, that s not the biggest draw.What s different about LandscapePro is the adjustments that can be applied to specific parts of the picture, but still rather simply.The trade-off for that simplicity?After that, the program is currently $40 for the basic version and another $20 on top of that for the Photoshop plug-in and RAW capabilities.
In addition, the UK came third overall in terms of human capital, coming fifth in terms of internet literacy and sixth in terms of ICT specialists and basic digital skills."A true digital economy is one where businesses take full advantage of the possibilities and benefits offered by digital technologies, both to improve their efficiency and productivity, as well as to reach customers and realise sales," the report said.The report found that online service completion, the sophistication of provisioned services and the availability of pre-filled forms were very poor.Ahead of the UK overall in terms of their digital advancement were Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands, Finland and Belgium.The European Commission figures also revealed that the UK is one of the largest beneficiaries of funding from Horizon 2020, a project that awards funding to innovative research projects.The UK has received €2.1bn from Horizon 2020 since the launch of this programme in 2014 it runs till 2020 and €7bn under the Framework Programme & FP7 , the predecessor research funding programmeGreece and Slovenia were the countries that received the highest funding in relation to the size of their IT sector.
Pebble Core is "a tiny little Android phone without a screen" Pebble co-founder and CEO Eric Migicovsky explained to me, but while runners gave the company an excuse to make it, it's hackers he's most excited about.Doing away with the display meant Pebble could take advantage of a couple of things: no power-hungry, GPU-intensive screen allows the gizmo to offer decent battery life off a comparatively small battery, while the processor can be fairly humble too.On the outside, there's a power switch and a headphone jack up top, along with a keychain loop, while a removable magnetic clip is on the back; Migicovsky expects various different mounts to be developed, and hopes the system will be embraced by third-parties in the same way that several companies now offer Pebble smartwatch straps.One of the common complaints from existing Pebble owners, he explained to me, is that while they like wearing the watch to track steps and heart rate while exercising, they still feel obliged to carry their phone with them for music, route tracking, and emergency use.Since it's based on the new "Actions" interface Pebble is introducing with its Pebble 2 and Pebble Time 2 smartwatches, though, the possibilities are much broader.It's an intriguing device, certainly, though Pebble isn't pairing it with a similarly ambitious cellular program.
Your Apple Watch rapping you on the wrist is one thing, but how about if you could put a supercharged Taptic engine at the tip of each VR-visualized finger?That's one of the possibilities Novasentis is talking about, pitching its new approach to haptic feedback with smaller, faster-responding hardware that could turn up in wearables, VR controllers, gamepads, and more from next year.The whole strap of your smartwatch could have embedded haptics, for instance, pulsing in one direction or another to guide you through a virtual map.Fingertips in a virtual reality glove could give the wearer the impression of tapping controls you manipulate in mid-air.The taps and pulses felt much more defined than those from an existing smartwatch, while the band suddenly started beeping in different tones when switched into higher frequencies.Someone shooting you from behind, for instance, could send shivers through the bottom edges of the controller; different types of weapon could recoil in noticeably different ways.
They do not even look up when we walk past on the balcony. - Previously, customers who wanted to see the possibilities of automation, but now also more and more politicians and people from organizations and universities, says production manager Mr Ziebell. The concept, which was coined in Germany five years ago, has grown into a hot global trend. By product ID is linked to the production elements to go through so know the machines what to do. - It is important, otherwise we do not know where a problem arises, Mr Ziebell. Man still has an important role on the production floor.
To be fair, I ll eat chocolate regardless of what form it takes, but perhaps there s some truth to the notion that things taste even better when they look, well, too good to eat.And now, thanks to the magic that is 3D printing, you can design your own chocolate masterpieces that are as stunning as they are scrumptious.Whereas much of 3D-printing technology has been aimed at less, well, edible ends think 3D-printed skin, 3D-printed houses, and 3D-printed shoes , XOCO is looking to broaden the horizons when it comes to the possibilities behind the technology.The XOCO depends upon a polar coordinate system featuring a rotating build plate, a printhead, and glass cover.Everything in the design contributes to giving the process of printing a visually open impression, adding to the experience of creating your customized sweets, the designers say.All elements of the XOCO ecosystem of product, graphics, interaction, app and consumables contribute to a perfect creative experience for cooks and their guests, Michiel Cornelissen Ontwerp says, so if you re a proponent of tasting with your eyes first, you may want to create your next desserts with the XOCO.

This week she demonstrated and researchers from Germany, the Netherlands, Britain, Israel and Turkey, they arrived at a seminar in Linkoping, where a large number of representatives from the police authorities in different EU countries participated. - It has mainly been about the possibilities to act against a suspected suicide bomber, that is not an identified, but one suspect, says Anna Pettersson to new technologies. Part of the background to the project is that the British police in 2005 shot and killed an innocent student of the London Underground, when chased four suspected suicide bomber who was on the run. - Improvised sprängladdingar used by terrorists, can look like almost any shape, says Anna Pettersson. - It is innovative with our ballistic protection, is that it is transportable and can fit in a bag or box. But all that easy is not.
The Apple logo is seen from inside the company's Boylston Street store in Boston on Sept. 16, 2015.Apple may still get to set up wholly-owned stores in India, with the country s Commerce Ministry promising to discuss the matter with the Finance Ministry that had objected to the proposal.Indian government rules require that foreign-owned, single-brand retailers source 30 percent of their products locally, but the Indian government had indicated that it could provide a waiver of that requirement for branded stores of retailers of high-tech products.Why this matters: Apple has decided to focus on India, where it saw 56 percent year-on-year growth in iPhone sales in the last quarter.But that move came in for criticism from the environment ministry, which is concerned that this could create a recycling problem, as the phones would be closer to end of life.But during a meeting this month between Apple CEO Tim Cook and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi, the executive spoke of the possibilities of manufacturing and retailing in India, according to the country s Press Information Bureau.

Up until now, though, if you wanted gigabit internet speeds in your home, you need a fiber optic connection which hasn t been readily available to most households.And because of this, fiber has been the gold standard lately when it comes to residential internet connections.The orthogonal frequency domain multiplexing OFDM of DOCSIS 3.1 has helped increase the speed and data capacity of DOCSIS substantially, even as much as 50 percent more capacity over the same spectrum.DOCSIS 3.1 now provides the very latest capabilities in digital communication technologies including• LDPC encoding• High modulation orders, like 4096 QAM• More than 1 GHz of usable spectrum• Support of QoS• Up to 10 Gbps downstream and up to 1 Gbps upstream network capacityIn addition, DOCSIS 3.1 can be deployed on today s HFC network, and there is also no need to substantially upgrade existing plants.The process should be relatively smooth, and customers will enjoy increasingly better service during the entire process.The multi-gigabit internet speeds, as well as the interoperability among modem manufacturers and service providers, are expanding the possibilities available to consumers through television and internet.
How can open data solutions, visualization of big data and interactivity to hang together with industrial automation and digitisation?In the same way that drawings and maps are more visual than drawing, and map data in tabular form or as graphs , all the data can be better described if the visualization is done with multidimensional symbolic language that is similar to the reality that the numbers represent.This visualization speeds up the learning and able to to a greater extent to describe the implicit knowledge, skills, that might otherwise be lost.Niklas Johansson: Interactive visualizations and digital services can help you, as a company critically questioning the possibilities of their own processes and see any alternative and more efficient production.One result may be that companies can focus on innovative to develop their business and become more competitive both nationally and internationally.We are sure that there is a great need to be able to collect data from different sources and visualize it in aggregate on a helhetsnivå.

Despite almost being atrocious in its actual implementation, Nintendo's Power Glove accessory back in the NES days sparked many a hackers and tinkerer's imagination because of the possibilities it opened.Like this Hackaday project that shows a drone who's boss by controlling it with nothing but Jedi hand gestures.These are then fed to a logic chip that interprets these signals and translates them into drone commands that a ESP8266 Wi-Fi module then sends to the paired drone.The end result, of course, looks like magic.It doesn't offer perfect control of the drone, of course, at least not better than the more fine-grained movements of a dedicated handheld controller.It also perhaps underlies interest in alternative, and probably more natural, ways to control drones, like Xiaomi's idea for controlling a drone through a smart wristband.
