Turn your Room into your office or a Mario game: Microsoft HoloLens #VirtulaReality


What if I say that while just sitting in a sofa in your room can can do your office work by changing your room compeletly into your office or, what if you can see beyond your Laptop's or PC screen.
Microsoft on Wednesday in a Windows 10 even announced it's new technology breakthrough "Microsoft Hololens". Watch this Beautiful Video:


A thing that will change the way you think about technology or see technology. It comes with a new innovation i.e. 3-D Holograms which changes your room into windows app store, minecraft or your office Virtually. 

It uses no wires no Smartphone no nothing. It has all of it's own i.e. CPU , GPU and a dedicated Holographic Processing Unit. Therefore needs nothing to run it has all of it. The best part is it is not bulky like Oculus rift. It combines the feature of both Google glasses and Oculus Rift or the VR Gear.


You can also draw something during a Skype call and the user on the other side can see it and also can help you fixing something. The company has plans to build software for HoloLens, but it will be, as with all things, up to third-party developers to build the killer apps that make the headset a must-have. Microsoft’s quest to reclaim its former status as the de facto computing platform provider continues.

It sounds very odd but Microsoft is now the most interesting hardware companies. Yes, it builds X-boxes, Surfaces, Smartphones, Large touch displays and now a nerdy Goggles.

Price? Formal launch date? Partners? First killer app? All of those are critical unknowns, and Microsoft has a long road ahead. But what it has built to date is impressive, fun and challenging.

How to use a Remote control for controlling LED brightness.

I made a new and a very simple project on Arduino for controlling LED brightness by Remote Control. Things you need are:

  • IR Sensor
  • LED
  • Battery 9V
  • Bread Board
  • Some Connecting wires
  • Battery clip
  • Arduino Power Chord.

Things are above and now comes the circuit diagram. 


Simply hook LED and IR Sensor to the Arduino and its done.
The main thing is that each pressing a particular button of the remote control the LED's brightness will change. This thing can be understood in programming. 

I will be adding a video soon in about 30 minutes So, be updated.

Code link is Given Below.Remote Control led 

Hope you enjoy the project and ask Your Questions below I would Love to answer them. Video Below will give the demo.

WhatsApp and iMessage could be banned under new surveillance plans.











David Cameron could block WhatsApp and Snapchat if he wins the Next Elections in the United Kingdom as part of his plans for new surveillance powers announced in the wake of the shootings in Paris.

The Prime Minister said today that he would stop the use of methods of communication that cannot be read by the security services even if they have a warrant. But that could include popular chat and social apps that encrypt their data, such as WhatsApp.

Apple's iMessage and FaceTime also encrypt their data, and could fall under the ban along with other encrypted chat apps like Telegram.

He said: “In our country, do we want to allow a means of communication between people which […] we cannot read?” He made the connection between encrypted communications tools and letters and phone conversations, both of which can be read by security services in extreme situations and with a warrant from the home secretary.

But companies such as WhatsApp have remained committed to keeping their services encrypted and unable to be read by authorities, a project which has stepped up in the wake of the Edward Snowden’s revelations on NSA surveillance.

This was one of the most beautiful products of the CES 2015. The futuristic Scooter is entirely electric  can reach a speed of 90 Km/hr. The parts of this scooter are machined in the same way of sports car.

The Software inside this innovative vehicle brings an enormous amount of customization. The scooter can be Integrated with the iPhone or Android to change the colors of Headlight, monitoring the battery usage, find a battery swap station, call for help if you get crashed or locate where you parked your vehicle.

Yes, now no need of charging a battery because the GOGORO has developed a new technique of battery refill i.e. not by charging it for hours but, by swapping it. All you have to do is take out the battery out and replace it with full battery at the battery swapping station.

The scooter's intelligent software not only monitors your Gogoro for any potential issues, but it also monitors your riding habits to see when you tend to recharge, and it can actually talk to the other charging stations so that they can anticipate where and when you'll stop by, much like a commuter's tendency to stop by the same gas station on the way home from work.

Now Music Floats in the Air: Bluetooth Leviating Speakers



Technology is going freak everyday from smartphones to Quantum Display TVs, From Self Driving Cars by Google to Wearable techs. Everyday new innovation is is coming i tech world, making our lives easier and faster, making the world a smaller place.

The innovation I found over these days is Floating Speakers. Yes, they really float in air!!! but, above their magnetized base. The Beautiful Speaker above is named as OM ONE. It's creators not say tat it is cool but it also raises it's performance buy producing sound in 360 degrees surface area, which makes possible to get out more sound from less powerful speaker. That is why the OM ONE consume less power than other bluetooth speakers. The 3-watt speaker helps it's rechargeable lithium-ion battery to give 15 hours on music on 70 percent volume


The OM ONE speaker's orb measures 9.1 cm in diameter and floats 3 cm in air above the base and weighs 340 gms (levitating friendly). It has 75 mm audio driver and a built-in microphone to make phone calls. The magnetic base which has a luminous Hindu Lord Shiva's OM symbol is 16 cm in diameter and 4 cm in height. Also the speaker is portable and can be used on on it's own only the base is needed to be plugged into a wall socket.

The OM ONE is being crowd-funded through the Om Audio website, with the goal of US $100,000, which is already reached. The pricing will be around $179 and raised to $199.

Light Papers Turns Anything into Light


Yes, you read it right this beautiful invention can turn anything luminous from your pen to your room's walls. Rohinni an Idaho based startup has developed a light paper which has really thickness of a paper and glows like an LED. It can be applied to any surface of any shape. 

READ: Samsung To launch MacBook Air"s Compitetor.

"With Lightpaper it's more of a platform of light that we don't even know how it's going to be used," explains Nick Smoot CMO Rohinni. "All we know is that we're trying to unlock the ability to create light."

It is manufactured by mixing ink and tiny LEDs together and printing them out on a conductive layer. This object is packed between two other layers and sealed. These tiny LEDs are about the size of red blood cell!! and are randomly dispersed on the material and the current flows it lights up.

The thin LEDs are the technology developed from the OLED technology but nothing such has came into the market, Lightpaper is much thinner than the OLEDs and has life span of 20 years same as of LEDs.

The company isn't interested in TV market but company is  seeing this technology to be applied on a bigger canvas i.e. for making cars head lights, lightning for houses for illuminating logos may of your smartphone, laptops or of your car. The company is working on other implementations of the lightpaper but Smoot didn't tell any to the interviewer 

Read: Breathable air on Mars.

"The design process is something that can be done almost in an afternoon," Smoot says. "We've had people engage with us before, and before the day is out, we have designs that can go to market, which is a pretty weird thought."




For consumers the Lightpaper will be availble in the mid 2015 .But Rohinni won't be aiming at the home hobbyist market until after it takes hold in the commercial and industrial space. There some problems though related to this beautiful technology that is related to every tech in today's world like it has shimmering or starry night effect. 

"The magical thing about this solution is it's brighter, it's thinner, it's flexible, it's addressable, and programmable. You can address the sections of the diodes, which is a whole other space when you start thinking about solutions of light that you can address sections of."
