How Solar Water Heater Works??

Hi frnzz… many of us have a habit of drinking boiled water… it’s really an appreciable work. How do you boil the water? Well… we use geysers to boil the water… we even take shower using geysers. Frnzz… do we realise what are we wasting by using geysers? In one year, an 80-gallon (302-liter) electric water heater averages about $500 to run, uses 4,800 kWh of electricity and contributes about 6,600 pounds (2,993 kilograms) of CO2 to the atmosphere.

Beyond MegaPixels – Its Femto-Photography!!!

Femto-photography is a term describing ultra high speed imaging. Femto-photography of macroscopic objects was first done by a team at the MIT Media Lab lead by Ramesh Raskar. Before that the term has at least been used for certain proposed experimental procedures in experimental nuclear physics.

In their publications Raskar’s team claims to be able to capture exposures so short that light only traverses 0.6 mm (Equal to only a few picoseconds, or thousands of femtoseconds) during one exposure by combining available high end research equipment and sophisticated sampling algorithms. Raskar presented his team’s feat during TEDGlobal 2012, reaching a wider audience through viral video.

TransOS – OS in the Cloud

Have you ever thought you can use your PC without actually having a Hard Drive attached to it???? Yes, it is absolutely possible.

Due to the advancements in Cloud Computing many of the organizations are shifting to VDI (Virtual Desktop Environment) which has many advantages which will be addressed later in this article.

TransOS – A new-cloud based operating system for all kinds of computer is being developed by researchers in China.

Less than half the Earth’s landmass is accessible to wheeled  and tracked vehicles, yet people and animals can go almost anywhere on Earth. This situation motivates the development of robot vehicles that use legs for their locomotion, thereby embracing nature’s mobility solution. The goal is to achieve animal-like mobility on rough and rugged terrain, terrain too difficult for any existing vehicle.

Why do Storms Occur ??

Thunderstorms form when rising warm air, through a process called convection, rises into cooler air alot. Conditions have to be favorable for thunderstorm development, which can be a varietey of factors, including cold fronts, low pressure systems, tropical storms/hurricanes (low pressure systems over water), and storms that form from daytime heating when conditions allow.

Many times we forget to unplug the Battery Charger from the AC Power socket after detaching the Phone from the Charger, Power socket will be in ON position and we think that the current is being wasted as the Power socket is ON and as we have not connected any Mobile to it, current is being wasted.

But this is not exactly what it is happening, Lee me first give you a brief introduction to what LOAD means in an Electronic Circuits.

DONGLE – How Does It Work ?

Many of us might have old desktops at home which we will be using for watching movies, playing songs and working on some low end applications. Because our Old Desktops configuration probably would be a Intel p4 or a Intel Pentium D or an older version of AMD, also that the RAM would be around typically 512MB.

But still we use them for our daily use because the resale value of them in the market is very less as Electronic Devices are growing very fast and we are able to get high end devices at a lower cost so who wants to buy an Old Desktop PC. Now-a-days many of us are using Wi-Fi at home and because our Old PC’s typically don’t have a wireless capability built into it, we face difficulty to connect our Mobile Devices, laptops to our Desktop PC. Come’On guys Wireless Connectivity is the new trend, so i would like to introduce you to a device which would solve this problem .
