Mobile Phone Signal Extender

Mobile phones have already become the need of the time. “Just can’t live without mobiles,” many users say. (I wonder how we lived earlier). There is no denying of the fact that they are playing an important role in how we communicate and do things; some glitches notwithstanding.

One of the most annoying problems is when net work does not function well; you get calls dropped and or speech garbled and poor cell phone reception due to networks. At is for such situation that Mobile Phone Signal Extender comes handy. Simply mount the included antenna near a window and run the coax cable to the base booster unit. You get 2500 square feet of prime signal area (enough to cover 2-3 rooms on two different floors).

Heated Traction Mats

Is it too early to talk about winter tools? Looking for winder products at this time of the yeas may save some money. Feeling the nip in the air made me think of traction mat that usually sits outside all winter long and whenever it begins to snow you flip it on. The Traction Mat heats up and melts snow off of your walkway, courtyards, backyards and or rooftops. Which means no more back breaking shoveling of snow. For some this is just another tool to be exercise with, but it is handy for those who are not fit to do this tough exercise.

Have a look at FrontGate Heated Traction Mats that has been designed to clear a clear path to your front door through snow and ice. Heated mat plugs into any standard 120V outlet, Non-slip, UV-protected rubber construction, 6′ cord and generates enough heat to melt 2″ of snow per hour.

Technology and Education

Like all other fields of human activities, Internet and web technologies have transformed education sectors as well. Technologies can play even larger role in accelerating this positive change.

Have a look at developed economies where the ratio of computers to students is one to one. Computing has already become an integral tool in all disciplines. Web based education software has matured and students and teachers are linked together. Computing in the classroom have gone much beyond students doing Internet searches, sending e-mail and checking spelling, presentation programs and spreadsheets; all useful and helpful aids for students as well as teachers.

Wi-Fi City

Wi-Fi is one of the latest and hottest advancement in web technologies. It is already creating waves and trend watchers are predicting how this will change the world or at least the usage of the Internet in the world.

Wi-Fi is a continuous transmission of high-bandwidth video and multimedia information. It serves the LAN (local area network) market. Simply put, it connects data devices with wireless transmissions. In other words, it enables computers to “talk” to the Internet without being connected to a modem, DSL or cable. Instead of “talking” via wires and cables, the computer is “talking” over the wireless Ethernet.

Blur Ray Future Seems Blue

blu-ray-1Is Blu-ray technology destined to be a short-lived phenomenon, soon to be superseded by on-demand movies and other shows delivered via the Internet?

In consumer electronics, nobody knows anything, nobody can predict, they say. Analysts argue that Blu-ray players may not go main stream. No one knows if Blu-ray will ultimately succeed, nut we can have a look at its pluses; Blu-ray technology delivers the best picture quality, few users can connect their TVs to broadband, fast Internet speeds are needed to view HD content via the Web, sales are up and prices are dropping for Blu-ray players, Blu-ray has already entered the public’s awareness and Blu-ray is offering many support features for consumers’ use.   » . . . . .

Devulcanize Waste Tires and Walk Green

timberlandUsing a proprietary chemical reactant to devulcanize rubber, Green Rubber has found a way to recycle old auto tires. The company process the shredded tires to yield a 100% recycled form or a 50/50 blend of recycled plus virgin material. Soon, the blend is being used by Timberland to make soles for the shoes.

Putting trashed tires back in use (other than burning them during demonstrations on roads) is a big achievement on more than one account. Many rubber products will be made of vulcanized rubber, which is created by adding sulfur and heat to virgin rubber in order to make a tougher, more durable material.   » . . . . .

Men and Machines

thought_controlAdvanced Step In Innovative Mobility (Asimo) is one of a very few robots that can walk reliably on two legs. It is fitted with twin cameras in its head and is powered by 34 individual motors.

Lately, researchers at the Honda Research Institute has demonstrated the invention by using it to move the arms and legs of an Asimo humanoid robot. Honda hopes that by 2020 the robot will be in the market, affordable and capable enough, to help with simple tasks. An elaborate electronic helmet will allow the wearer to control a robot by thought alone.   » . . . . . Continue reading → Men and Machines
