3D Printed cars will be our future ?

News about 3D printed gadgets is around for a while. We never gave a thought we one will be printing a car in 3D. Don't take me wrong, the car doesn't come out of a 3D printer out of blue. Its car chassis which is made of light weight, super strong  joints which are 3D printed.

Apart from chassis, the Blade uses 3D-printed components for all the interior pieces and the exterior grilles.

Divergent Microfactories' 3D-printed supercar, the Blade, uses 3D-printed aluminium joints connected to carbon-fibre tubes to create the frame for the chassis. The company claims a 0-60 mph time of "around" 2 seconds and a weight of 1,400 pounds.

CEO: KEVIN CZINGER states,
“We’ve developed a sustainable path forward for the car industry that we believe will result in a renaissance in car manufacturing.”

Air Mentor Pro : Device to inspect air and show quality of it in indoor environments

Global warming is the main growing concern all over the world. People are getting affected with various diseases with pollutants in the ambient air. 

Air pollution is one  of the major killer in the world. Round the globe, millions of people are affected every day because of air pollution. Though scientists have raised their concerns through media, governments have taken various measure to minimise the pollution and even published Air quality standards, nothing is getting changed much rapidly.

Its we people who needs to realise and start taking measures to lead life happily. Well all said, we come to the actual topic. 

I was actually looking around for a device which can monitor air pollution in a room and provide feed back. I came across "Air Mento Pro" which I found quite interesting.
mrtechpathi_air_mentor_pro


This product is a 6-in-1 indoor air quality monitor. It has the capability to detect concentrations of CO2 (carbon dioxide) , VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) together with CO (carbon dioxide), PM2.5(Fine particles ), PM10, temperature and relative humidity. 

If you are doing yoga in a closed room, its very important to have fresh and clean air around.  This product design style fits the yoga environment. The combination of LED light shows the corresponding level of air quality with different colours.

There is even a smart phone app that provides explanations of the numbers and changes. The cloud computing infrastructure analyses the air quality patterns and gives effective advice to users. 

Coming to mobility wise, its designed with a in-built rechargeable battery which allows you to carry anywhere for temporary use. With the Air Mentor, people can be aware of the air quality around them, in order to ensure a healthy life.

This product is recognized with the COMPUTEX d&i awards 2015

Hope world will be back track again with less air pollution and people lead a peaceful and healthy life.

Light phone : Your phone to be away from your phone. Credit card sized phone.

Increase use of Smart phone has made people busy 24x7. When we get free time we keep our self busy chatting, watching videos, playing games. None will realise that we are moving away from real life to a unknown virtual life.

Instead of taking our children to park, we feel comfortable staying indoor and playing games or chatting with friends using Smart phones. This is just an example. As days goes by we are not sure how lazy these devices will make us.

Don't take me wrong, using Smart Phone doesn't make us lazy but over usage is always dangerous isn't ?

What if we go back again to square one. Get disconnected from the world and use phone only to make calls. Is there any such device ? Is it possible to get a phone with this minimal features ? I am not talking about antique phones which are lying around in our storage from ages.

I came across a website "the lightphone" where they have come up with a credit card sized light phone which can be carried in your wallet.

Its pretty amazing , intersting and thoughtful.  Even public seems eager to agree: The Light Phone has blown past an initial $200,000 goal in just the first few weeks of its ongoing crowdfunding campaign.

Just watch this simple video

Gorilla Glass can be scratched. Beware if your smart phone has a Gorilla glass

Many smart phone companies claim that glass used in their Smart Phones are scratch free and they are tough. They even named it Gorilla glass. Have your ever wondered if Gorilla glass is really scratch free. If its scratch free till what extend ?

I was believing that there is no way to scratch Gorilla Glass until I came across this video on youtube.
mrtechpathi_gorilla_glass

The guy in "Unbox Therapy"  youtube channel tries scratching glass used in Apple watch with simple items like keys, knife and sand paper. 

Out of surprise, sand paper has the ability to scratch Gorilla glass (Ion X glass as claimed by Apple). Bit disappointed as proud owner of iPhone :(. 

Feel free to share your thoughts.

How to Make Your Mobile Phone Ridiculously Quick

Over time mobile phones tend to slow down, sometimes even to a crawl.  We will teach you how to make your mobile phone ridiculously click with a few tips and tricks. 

There are a handful of apps for both Android and iOS that claim to make your phone faster.  The team at Quick Mobile Fix has put them to the test to discover which ones are bogus and which ones deliver.

Android
mrtechpathi_make_android_faster

Tip #1: Keep yourself updated.  Out-dated versions of Android are one of the main causes for slow speeds on a phone.  Older versions of Android, especially Android 2 and 3, are known to slow down over time.  Upgrading to the latest version of Android will not only offer new features but also increase speed.

Tip #2: Out with the old.  Get rid of apps that you no longer use.  Many phones come with a bunch of apps such as weather and news apps from the phone provider or maker which you don't ever use.  These apps cause slowdowns and eat up space.  Uninstall them and your phone will run smoother.

Tip #3: Use a new launch.  Android's default launcher (home screen launcher) is neither the fastest nor the most efficient.  You can find new launches in the Google Play store which run much faster, such as Nova Launcher & Apex Launcher.  Both are available for download at no cost in the Google Play store and do not void your phone's warranty as they do not modify critical system components.

Tip #4: Customize your rom.  If you really want to make your phone ridiculously quick you can run a custom rom.  Stock Android will never be as fast and many custom roms even include overclocking.  You can find lots of great details and roms online on websites such as XDA (http://forum.xda-developers.com/).

iOS
mrtechpathi_make_iphone_faster

iOS on the iPhone and iPad is quite fast by default.  This is due to the strict control and optimizations that Apple has built into its system.  However, you can still make iOS much faster with a few quick customizations.

Tip #1: Free up space.  iOS runs much faster when it has at least 1 GB of free space.  You can check how much space is available in Settings > General > Usage.  If it's less than 1 GB you should remove unused applications, photos and files to free up space.

Tip #2: Get rid of background processes.  iOS now allows processes and applications to run in the background.   This slows things down and eats up battery life.  You can turn these off in Settings > General > Background App Refresh.

Tip #3: Turn off the fancy stuff.  By default the animations (called Motion) are enabled on iOS.  These look nice but make your mobile phone slow.  Turn it off in General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion, set Reduce Motion to On.

Tip #4: Refresh time.  iOS slows down the longer you leave it without a reset.  Reboot (turn it off and back on) your phone every day or two to keep it lightning fast.


Hopefully, with these tips, we will have helped you turn your phone from being a slow, sluggish bore into the superfast champion you want it to be!
