Power Sharing Cable


I am back after a long time, just busy somewhere in college work. This time the power sharing cables by SAMSUNG.
In today's world dead batteries of smartphones is a common problem.
Samsung has come up with a solution of this problem "Power Sharing Cables" as one can share it's Galaxy device battery with other devices. 


Simply just download the "Power sharing" app from the google playstore and select the amount of power to transfer to the other device and plug one end of usb power sharing cable to your galaxy device and the other end to the device you want to share power with and it's done.

The devices which can share their power are Galaxy s5, Galaxy Tab s and other Selected Galaxy Devices.

Can "God Particle" Destroy the Universe

Another topic of discussion not related to the this blog but, fascinating. According to the most famous Physicist of the world Dr. Stephen Hawkings the "GOD PARTICLE" discovered in 2012 could destroy the Universe.


He said that at very high energy levels the Higgs Boson could become unstable, causing a " catastrophic vacuum dacay" that can collapse space and time. But, possibilitiy of happening this is very low because the scientist till date don't have a particle accelerator large enough to do this stuff.

In his new book " Starmus : 50 years of Man in Space" he says

"The Higgs potential has the worrisome feature that it might become megastable at energies above 100bn giga-electron-volts (GeV)," Professor Hawking writes.
"This could mean that the universe could undergo catastrophic vacuum decay, with a bubble of the true vacuum expanding at the speed of light.
"This could happen at any time and we wouldn't see it coming."
Well it can be seen only in near future that what happens with the Higgs Boson.

Quantum Computers a new dawn in Computing World

In 1947, American computer engineer Howard Aiken said that just six electronic digital computers would satisfy the computing needs of the United states. But obvious he didn't count the large amount of data produced due to scientific research and also the emergence of the Internet.

ENIAC (Electronic numerical integrator computer) world's first general purpose computer
As the electronic data and computation is increasing at an exponential rate, will human ever have amount of computing power he needs?

The answer to this might be beyond a supercomputer in the coming future, a "Quantum Computer" yes a computing device far more faster than the normal computers we know. Quantum Computer is a device which directly uses the "Quantum Mechanical" phenomenon.


In digital computers we have transistors for computation and all the work. In them data is encoded into binary digits we are all aware of i.e. 0s and 1s. Where 0 being the off/low state and 1 being the on /high state and each of the 0 or 1 is called a bit ( binary digit)

 But here in the quantum computers, instead of bits we have "qubits". The most fascinating thing about the qubits is that they can be 0 and 1 at the same time. What???? this might come in your mind but let us try it in a different way we can say that a switch can be on and off at the same time. Sounds crazy, but true.

Well how does it works. In contrast to transistors in digital computers a very small entity such as an atom is used to do do computing. Any thing like photon, a nucleus or an electron can be used as qubits. But, how can they be at the 0 and 1 state at once?

Let me explain you for example an electron of phosphorus is used as a qubit. All electrons have magnetic field around them as they act like a tiny magnets and this property is call spin. They would align themselves in the direction of the external magnetic field and let it be the 0 state. Now if you have to change the spin of the electron you have to apply some force and that would be the high energy state of the electron or the 1 state.


Now if we are able to align the electron against the magnetic field it would stay there. So far it is the classical 0 and 1 but the amazing thing about the quantum particles is that they can be aligned in both directions at same time. Now if we measure there spin it would be either 1 or 0 but once we measure. But, electron can exist in both states at same time and this amazing phenomenon is called the Quantum Superposition.

As we really can't calculate a superposition so the information before we know the actual spin of electron is lost. So, we have to make such logical operations that the information is not lost. Well this is the most hardest part about creating a Quantum Computer. Well so far as I know 48% of accuracy has been achieved by a Quantum computer calculation which is remarkable.

It might happen that next generation at our age have successfully installed a 100% accurate Quantum Computer at large Labs like CERN

MOTO X (2nd GEN)

Motorola launched Moto X 2nd Gen today after a long wait. The company has upgraded the device pretty much. Let's check out the specs of the device





Hardware

Getting to the hardware part there are pretty much interesting things the company has upgraded. First of all the side rim of the device is made of metal which gives the phone a premium feel. Screen is now 5 inches full HD AMOLED display. The device is also thinner from the older version.



Coming to the front look the device two significant front facing speakers just like the Htc One (M8). The speakers are slightly just above the surface which does not scratch the ear. Also, there is also one merit of this that if your device is kept the front face down then screen is protected from scratches. The two dots at the bottom of the device are IR sensors for gestures, like you can silent your device by just waving your hand above the mobile phone.


Now coming towards the back there is a 13MP camera surrounded by the ring flash but, here the ring actually does not illuminates. The two leds flashlights are installed inside the ring. Camera can record 4k UHD, 1080p and regular videos. Moto X comes in various of back covers we can order as we like.


On the sides the power button and the volume rockers are on the right side and the power button has a texture on it to distinguish between volume rockers and the power button.


Unluckily the phone has no external sd card slot. It comes only in two variants 16 gigs and 32 gigs

Software

Talking about the software part the device comes with the android 4.4.4 kikat upgradable to Android L. the phone comes with the stock android which Google releases it means no change in the OS and also fast update of the device  because Motorola itself has not to do and sort of "editing" in the OS.


The touchless display is now even more interesting now it's known as moto voice. We need not to even touch the device to access the voice control. Earlier user had to say the "Okay Google Now" to access the voice control now you can set your own keyphrase  like " You there kit" , " Help me kit".

It comes with built in third party apps such as Facebook , Twitter, Youtube and WhatsApp. But the company says that they will be coming with more third party apps in the device.

Whatsapp which was acquired by facebook this year will soon add the voice calling feature to it, as the voice calling market is captured by Skype and Viber. Facebook the parent company of whatsapp will not add any kind of voice calling facility to it's messenger.

Whatsapp will get voice calling feature by the end of this year was announced by founder of whatsapp Jan Koum earlier this year at MWC Barcelona.

Jan Koum said

"We're adding voice to WhatsApp so people can stay in touch with friends and loved ones no matters where they are in the world"


"We use the least amount of bandwidth out there, and have optimized the hell out of it. We've made sure the quality is there, though, just like the messaging functons of WhatsApp"

Let's see how the voice calling feature works....

Google Glass app detects Human emotions in Real time

A software has been developed by the Germany's Fraunhofer Institute that can detect the human emotion in real time. SHORE ( Sophisticated High-speed Object Recognition ) the technology developed by the institute. The team is thinking to make the software an app for the Google Glass.
  

The software purely analyzes a persons emotion in real time none of which leaves the device . All the calculations are done by the device's CPU in the integrated eye wear.

The SHORE technology is based on the learning algorithm and was "trained" by the use of database that contained more than 10,000 faces. It can recognize the emotions such as anger, happiness, sad and surprised. It can aso estimate the gender and the approximate age of the person.

The technology can be a thing of great help for the persons with disabilities such as autism. The app can also be helpful for the persons with visual disabilities. The app can also help people to interact in their social life more effectively. 

The identity of the person is not revealed and none of the image leaves the device
