Wheelchairs with Caterpillar Tracks

Have you tried using a wheelchair? If you have, then you probably realized that using it is a very painstaking thing to do. You would have to exert effort in your upper body, most especially your upper arms, just so you could move about from one place to another. Moreover, while on wheelchair you probably realize that there are certain things that you cannot do with it; for example, you cannot use it in the beach or in the sand, you will have difficulty moving if the area you are at doesn’t have a leveled floor, or you cannot climb the stairs simply because it is just so impossible. But nevertheless, we can’t undermine the importance of wheelchair to people who badly need it the most. Wheelchairs have truly helped the handicapped to continue living by providing them with ways on how they can go around different places. Because traditional wheelchairs with two big wheels attached on the side has many limitations, would you believe that there are people who tried to redesign the thing and make it even more surprisingly useful? Yes! There are people who are fed up with the limitations that wheelchairs have, and so they have decided to restructure it in such a way that it’ll become even more useful. The point of having a wheelchair is to transport one person (who is physically limited to do so) from different places as the person desires. But if the wheelchair can’t do that simple thing, then what good can it give? Well, the redesigned wheelchair is now less with the two big wheels on the side. Rather, it has caterpillar tracks similar to those you see on tanks. Yes! It’s like the hybrid between a tank and a wheelchair. With the new, redesigned concept, the wheelchair can now fully serve its purpose of transporting people wherever possible. Now, you can use the wheelchair on rough terrain, and care like it is a perfectly leveled field even if it is not. The ‘new’ wheelchair can now run on the sand without getting stuck. And surprisingly, you can climb flight of stairs with it. Additionally, it is equipped with motors, so you will not burden yourself with using your upper body to push yourself around, all you have to do is to press buttons and voila! You are in your next location. Wheelchairs are made for transport. And with the new redesigned and revolutionized wheelchair, it can do so much more. Now, people with physical limitations to go around can just easily do it with a press of a button. Now, why would you care if Aladdin has...

How the Robot Solved the Rubik’s Cube

Have you played with Rubik’s cube? The three dimensional puzzle with six faces covered by nine stickers, where each one of the six faces is covered with solid colors (from yellow, green, blue, white, red, and orange). Can you remember how easy it is to pivot the cube and mix up all the colors, while you find it very challenging to solve and bring the cube back to its original form? For it to be solved, you need to have each face of the cube to have one solid color. And yes! That is where the challenge begins. You probably have uttered many curse words in the process of solving the cube puzzle, or you probably have thrown dozens of it as you loose temper in the midst of solving it? But, did you know that there is actually a technique in solving the Rubik’s cube? Yes, there are actually many different tutorials in Youtube which tells you what to do so you can solve the cube. You really have a low probability of solving it if you just go blind eye with it. But if you are guided with the twist, turns and pivots that you must do, then for sure you can finish the puzzle in one day on your first try. Well, if you keep practicing you can actually shorten the time to solve the puzzle. Have you seen Rubik’s cube competition on TV where many players are battling one another to solve the puzzle in the least amount of time? Actually, there are no miracles involved there. All they are equipped with is the constant practice of the twisting and turning of the cube. And that is why; it is not surprising to see robots solve the puzzling Rubik’s cube. You probably wonder if robots are equipped with brains that help them solve rationally the Rubik’s cube, but no. The robots are preprogrammed with the right twist, and turns just like how the players in the Rubik’s cube competition do. The robot has built-in software that tells it, when to turn the cube left or right, and what line of the cube to turn. So, it is not anymore surprising to see such robots play with the cube. The challenge now is, if the robot can solve a Rubik’s cube all by himself, why can’t you? It is not really hard to solve a Rubik’s cube puzzle, all that is required, is to master and practice the twisting and turning. So what are you waiting for, try searching for tutorial on Google and watch videos on Youtube. Who knows, you might be the next Rubik’s...

Future of Smartphones

Who would have thought that computers now can be blended into phones? Who would have thought that the cellular phones 15 years ago whose style is bulky and heavy would become sleek and stylish today? Who would have thought that the phone we once only used for calling can have features that we can only see in star trek? Yes, the generations of mobile phones have constantly evolved. And they are not evolving in a slow pace, they are unbelievably evolving in more than twice a year. And mobile phones today have become totally futuristic, that some have proximity sensors to detect what we are doing, while some have finger print technology, which is with the touch of the finger, the phone can be easily unlocked. Indeed, the evolution of phones has become so rapid that only our imagination can become at par with its changes. The phones that we once knew that have keypads and qwerty keypads have evolved into touchscreen, that with the simple touch of the finger on a glass screen can provide information and function on what the phone should do—and this idea is brilliantly amazing. If we speak of such kind of phones, maybe ten years ago, everyone would be raising their eyebrows about such out of this world idea. But hey! It is now real. Such thing now exists, and everyone has it. Many more technologies are constantly being developed and incorporated in smartphones, the numbers are going and becoming limitless. We should brace ourselves on the future of smartphone for it can become very surprising. Who knows maybe 5 or ten years from now, we will see touchscreen as thing of the past, as prehistoric and ancient. Maybe in the near future, smartphones can carry projections of keyboard on tables. And we maybe typing on tables, and use such projections to input data and whatnot to the smartphone just like what we do with touchscreen phones now. Who knows what lies ahead for the future of smartphones? There would certainly be many more futuristic functions that smartphones can carry. Today, they may all be ideas, and concepts in blueprints; but who knows what will happen with it 10 years or 20 years from now? Well, even touchscreens were unheard of 20 years ago, and such kind of technology is only available in sci-fi films. But now, they have evolved into tangible reality enjoyed by many. I guess the idea of projecting keyboards like laser lights emanating from a single point of the phone towards the table could become a reality. Maybe not today, maybe not soon. But we never know what is...

But, I guess you would be drooling at an entertainment room that is filled with the latest technology for gaming; a room that seems to be the heaven for gamers because of the unique interior design that has, that is definitely suited for gaming and entertainment. Well, picture out having a large room with lights that would respond to what games you are currently playing, like the lights would adjust to how intense the game is going on, and would get dim or bright depending on the suspense in the game. Plus, imagine having your own seat (which looks like a car seat from an alien vehicle) complete with all the steering wheel, brakes, and whatnot. Also, picture the room to be filled with sound system that can give you crystal clear sound whilst you are playing. But, what makes the room truly special is the fact that it has a television set, which has crisp and crystal display of the video. Yet, what makes the television truly special is that it is designed in a curve manner. The TV stretched and filled the entire corner of one room, while having a concave shape as it fill it. Exciting isn’t it? Yes! The TV is designed to give you a real-like experience while playing car racing games. It is curved to allow the eyes to experience a good optical illusion while playing the game, an illusion that would make the game even more realistic, and action packed. It is truly a game worthy experience to spend time inside the room. I bet every gamer in the world would be demanding to have one in their homes....
