Cool Apps let you Chat with Bonobo

Cool Apps let you Chat with Bonobo

It seems that in no time human can chat with bonobos. From the article on Gizmag it was stated that there's a tablet prototype which has a cool bonobo chat apps that let you chat with bonobos. (bonobos is also known as pygmy chimpanzee).

The seven bonobos living at the Bonobo Hope Great Ape Trust Sanctuary in Des Moines, Iowa, are a pretty smart bunch of apes. Among other things, they have a vocabulary of about 400 words – they don’t speak those words, but instead associate the meanings of them with symbols known as lexigrams. Using large wall-mounted touchscreen displays, they are able to communicate with humans by touching the appropriate lexigrams on those displays. Now, the sanctuary wants to develop an app that could be used on mobile versions of the wall screens, so tablet-wielding bonobos could communicate from wherever they happen to be.

One of the Bonobo Chat app’s more interesting features would be its ability to act as a sort of human-ape translator. People could simply speak into their device in English, at which point the app would select lexigrams corresponding to their words, and display those on the screen of the selected bonobo’s device. Conversely, once an ape had poked out a series of lexigrams on their screen, a corresponding spoken message would be played back by the human’s device. We’re not talking about complex sentences, obviously, but two-way conversations nonetheless.

The apes could also use the devices to control their environment – by selecting the appropriate lexigram, for instance, they could do things such as open a door, operate a vending machine, or watch a movie.

They could also use it to control RoboBonobo, a water gun-equipped wheeled robot located outside of their enclosure. Because visitors generally aren’t able to go in with the apes, RoboBonobo would still allow the bonobos to physically interact with those people, such as by playing chase games or squirting them with water. Using the video output from an onboard camera, the apes could even play with people in another room, or – because the mobile devices communicate via the internet – in another country.

It may all sound a little outrageous to some people, but it’s certainly not the only project of its kind. The Orangutan Outreach program, for example, is working on getting iPads into the hands of apes in zoos, to provide them with mental stimulation. The Wild Dolphin Project, meanwhile, is working on a device that would allow communications between humans and dolphins.

The Bonobo Hope Great Ape Trust Sanctuary is currently raising funds for the development of Bonobo Chat, on Kickstarter. If you’re feeling particularly generous, a pledge of US$500 or more will get you a Skype “chat” with one of the sanctuary’s two start pupils, Kanzi or Panbanisha.

Press Panic A Hospital Locator Apps for an Emergency

Press Panic A Hospital Locator Apps for an Emergency

This is Press Panic a Hospital locator apps which will helps you to locate the nearby hospital. this apps available for Android and iOS devices. This simple apps will works whenever you press the panic button on the screen and then it will locate the nearby location to you complete with specific information such as Address, Phone Number and also the mileage.

The PressPanic apps use GPS to locate the nearest hospital, but unfortunately this application can not automatically activate the GPS, but you must first activate the GPS in the phone itself then this apps will works. "Every single hospital has detailed latitude and longitude coordinates which triangulate around users' exact GPS location. One press gives you a list of hospitals, addresses, a quick-call option and a quick-directions option," Say the developer of the Apps.

Dr. John Porter of Kirkman Road Veterinary Clinic in Orlando, Florida, came up with the idea for Press Panic because so many vacationers in his town bring their pets along, but dont know where to go when their furry friend gets sick, due from the idea now there are two buttons, one to search for human hospitals and another for Animal Hospital. But unfortunately this is not a free apps for the animal hospital but it's free when you just need to locate the nearby people hospital. so we haven't try this press panic apps.

Cool Marshall Fridge an Amplifier for your Kitchen

Cool Marshall Fridge an Amplifier for your Kitchen

Marshall the leading amplifier company has just made a cool marshall fridge, It's really a new technology from marshall. Among the rows of classic amps on show at Marshall's booth this year is something that may look like an amp from the Jim Marshall signature series, but which is nothing of the sort. The authentic Marshall amp head and cabinet facing of the prototype Marshall Fridge open up to reveal 4.4 cubic feet (124 liters) of can or bottle chilling storage space, with handy can storage on the inside of the door and a mini freezer to feed users with a steady supply of ice cubes.

Unfortunately, much like the initial announcement of its Major and Minor headphones, Marshall is not giving too much away about its latest branded non-amp product at the moment. The Energy Star, RoHS and UL compliant fridge sports Presence, EQ, Master and Pre-Amp control knobs across the head section that go up to eleven but there's no word on whether these actually do anything other than look cool. Either way, it will no doubt make a useful and good-looking addition to any rehearsal room and is sure to be the next must-have dorm accessory.

Marshall says that production models should be available by October for an introductory price of US$299, hit the source link to register for updates.

Not that I'm complaining at all, but would it lessen its appeal to have a distorted guitar riff sound as the door opens or even include a digital music player in the head and some speakers in the cab?

While we wait for more details to emerge, have a look at the following very rock 'n' roll introductory video from Marshall:

Evacuated Tube Transport a Futuristic Transportation Concept

Evacuated Tube Transport a Futuristic Transportation Concept

What is Evacuated Tube Transport or often called as ETT? several days ago we read a cool amazing news that stated in the future we can travel from new york to beijing in just 2 hours without leaving the ground. IT's sound's difficult right? but with the evacuated tube transport concept this thing will come true. in Definition an ETT is patented transportation technology operating in a vacuum environment to minimize air friction. The experimental system uses automation to independently route automobile sized vehicles through a network of evacuated tubes. The pressurized vehicles are able to accommodate up to a half ton of palletized cargo or up to 6 passengers.

Advocates of Evacuated Tube Transport (ETT) claim it is silent, cheaper than planes, trains or cars and faster than jets. The basic plan is, well, as old as the enabling patent, US Patent 5950543, whose description is quite thorough. Issued in 1999, there remain seven years on the term of the patent, which is assigned to ET3.com, Inc., a licensing organization that hopes to head an alliance of players to fund and construct demonstration facilities.

The short version of the ETT story is as follows: put a superconducting maglev train in evacuated tubes, then accelerate using linear electric motors until the design velocity is attained. As the motors are integrated into the evacuated tubes, the conveyance capsules which travel in the tube need have no moving or electrically activated parts - passive superconductors allow the capsules to float in the tube, while eddy currents induced in conducting materials drive the capsules. Efficiency of such a system would be high, as the electric energy required to accelerate a capsule could largely be recaptured as it slows.

The most practical model system is based on car-sized passenger/cargo capsules that travel in 1.5 m (5 ft) diameter vacuum maglev tubes. The maglev tubes are permanently maintained at near vacuum conditions, and the capsules are inserted into and removed from the tubes through airlocks at stations along the route. After the capsules are accelerated to the design velocity (some 4,000 mph or 6,500 km/h), they coast for the remainder of the trip. There is no drag from traveling through air, and although small oscillations in the maglev suspension do cause a bit of inefficiency, it is a tiny fraction of the rather immense kinetic energy of an occupied capsule - which with a car of about 550 kg (1,212.5 lb) traveling at 4,000 mph is just about 244 kWh.

The capsule speed will depend on the length of the trip, as it takes time to accelerate. Given a nominal acceleration of 1 g, it takes about 3 minutes to reach 4,000 mph, at which point the capsule has traveled over 100 miles (161 km). ET3.com, Inc. believes that a reasonable speed for shorter trips is 370 mph (600 km/h). While tubes could be networked like freeways, with capsules automatically routed along their trip, local and long-distance trips would require separate maglev tubes to avoid unreasonable scheduling delays. Around the world in just over six hours isn't orbital velocity, but the practical benefits would be nearly the same - vital goods and talent delivered quickly to where they are needed.

Members of the ET3 consortium have worked with parties in China, where they say more than a dozen licenses for the company have been sold. As an open consortium, licensees become owners of the company and the group claims more than 60 licenses have also been sold in five different countries, with interest from several more. But with licenses selling through the ET3 website for US$100, a lot more people will need to get on board to turn the dreams of those behind the concept into a reality. The company is developing a 3D Virtual Ride for the system with those interested in hitching a ride able to submit their contact details here. Unfortunately, the prelaunch for the virtual ride was set for last year and it still hasn't eventuated.

Promising concept or pipe dream? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

Pair Apps for Long Distance Relationship

Pair Apps for Long Distance Relationship

Pair is a special iOS apps designed for a couple who are in long distance relationship, several days ago this pair apps was featured in Techcrunch website. it shows a simple apps for those who involved a long distance relationship(LDR).

The app is pretty simple in design and use You can start off by taking a picture and a small video using your iPhone and then uploading it along with the details of your special one as an invite to join. Once they accept, you will be ‘paired’ and you can get started and constantly keep in touch. You can upload and send images, videos and of course messages along with simple call and video calls. This pretty much gives you every possible option to stay in touch with that someone special.

There is also a feature that allows you to draw and scribble whatever you wish to convey and there is also a ‘Thinking of you’ button that pretty much is a like a buzz to the other person. There is also a fingerprint option that shows your partner’s thumbprint when they touch their screen and the phones vibrate in unison when both of you touch at same points of your phone. It is called ‘Thumbkissing’ (Personally, that is just pathetic, but hey, we are not judging).

You could say that apart from a few cheesy additions, there is nothing amazingly new about the app. But the advantage of it over Facebook, Skype and other chat forms is that it brings all of those together into one form and you need not be bugged by the rest of the world. Exclusivity and privacy is what it offers in a certain sense and we totally get where that is coming from.

iPhone 5 Rumor comes with 4.6-inch screen Retina Displays

iPhone 5 Rumor comes with 4.6-inch screen Retina Displays

There's so many rumor spreading about the iPhone 5 in the internet, and from the latest rumor that we heard iPhone 5 will comes a 4.6-inch screen and 4G LTE Network. if you have been following iPhone 5 rumors for a while. An unverified industry source has revealed to a South Korean publication that the new iPhone 5 will mount a large 4.6-inch Retina Display. (See the Galaxy Nexus pics which has 4,6Inch Screen Size)

Indeed, the new rumor has the same penchant of the previous ones. It says that Apple has tied up with Samsung and LG (note, Sharp is missing this time) for 4.6-inch Retina Display panels for the next iPhone, which according to the same source will come out a bit earlier in the summer this year. Do you really think that this rumor is making any sense? Of course, the likelihood of the predictions, at least the one regarding the release date, is very less. To release iPhone 5 this summer means there will be yet another iPhone upgrade in mere six to nine months. As per Apple’s traditions, the company hasn't unveiled a new iPhone without an interval of at least one year.

The rumormonger doesn’t stop guessing with screen size and release date only. The source has made one more prediction, which Apple must introduce on its new iPhone if it doesn't want to be left behind in global smartphone market. Can you guess what it will be? Yes, it is 4G LTE compatibility. Apple has already brought on 4G LTE on its third generation iPad, though restricted for North Americans only. So, we can certainly look for 4G LTE on iPhone 5.

$5 Million Hublot Watch

$5 Million Hublot Watch

Hublot the famous watch brand will launch their new luxurious watch with a stunning price tag. this hublot watch will go on sale for just $5 Million!!. so waht made the watch so expensive? The company claims that this diamond encrusted watch is the most "precious" timepiece it's ever created in its 32-year history (Hublot, which means porthole in French, was founded by Carlo Crocco in 1980).

Some people would ask why this watch so expensive? ok let's start some of the material using for made this $5 Million Hublot Watch. For starters, the 1.73-inch (44-mm) diameter 18K white gold case is packed with 302 baguette diamonds. Its 18K white gold dial holds another 179 baguettes and the 18K bracelet that holds it on the lucky owner's wrist is set with a staggering 782 more baguette diamonds, plus an additional six emerald-cut diamonds, all greater than 3 carats each. Throw in the 18K white gold crown's 1.06 carat rose-cut diamond, plus its 12 additional baguettes and you have a market-cornering 1,282 diamonds in total, more than 100 carats in baguettes alone, and all of grade A VVS clarity.

The rhodium-plated, diamond-polished hands are driven by a self-winding, 25-jewel, HUB 1100 movement with about 42 hours of power reserve. Nice, but for five mill, would installing a battery have been too much to ask? Perhaps. In some circles, battery-powered watches are considered just another piece of jewelry, not fine timepieces.

Also, let's not forget the cost of labor, which was particularly intense because each carefully-selected jewel had to be modified to perfectly fit the watch. After a year spent searching for the largest stones, Hublot, in collaboration with Geneva's Atelier Bunter, spent 14 months total on the Big Bang's construction. This included the efforts of 12 cutters and five setters who worked on it full-time for seven months!

Check out the Hublot video below to see the watch spinning and gyrating in all its glory.

The BumpyPhoto system allows users to upload a regular photo image to the company's website where some software is used to create a 3D depth map. Some human designers are also on hand to iron out any problems with the conversion, which means images with more people or objects will take longer - and cost more. Higher resolution images will obviously work better, but anything above 2-megapixels will be accepted. Users can also request a preview of the 3D depth map for approval once it's created.

The 3D depth map is then used to create the 3D relief out of a hard resin composite in a 3D printing process. Due to the additive 3D printing process, the company warns that some layering may be visible on the finished product because the 24-bit coloring added to the finished piece isn't actually painted on, but is part of the object's outer layer.

BumpyPhoto offers either a full photo, where the background remains mostly flat, or cutouts, where the background is removed. Some images will work better than others - subjects wearing glasses aren't ideal, for example - and the company specifies that only faces, full bodies, pets, cars, buildings or distinct objects will work.

The standard price for a custom-made Bumpy Photo is US$79, while a custom-made Bumpy Cutout is $89. Watch more about How bumpy photo system turns 2D pictures into a cool 3D Relief Sculpture.

Kick Activated Tailgate on All new Ford Kuga 2012

Kick Activated Tailgate on All new Ford Kuga 2012

Ford has unveiled a new technology for their all new ford kuga 2012, now with this kick activated tailgate you can open the back door easily just by kicking the bottom of the car's rear bumper and trunk door will open automatically and do the same to close it again, so do not have hands anymore.

This Hand's free Automatic Tailgate at all new Ford Kuga cars can overcome many common problems such as when you're carrying lots of luggage in hand, the edges of goods must be lowered first, open the trunk and grab the stuff and put it into the trunk.

The designers of the ‘kick start’ boot, have used existing technology for car doors, known as key-less entry, and taken it a step further.

The conventional key-less entry system allows drivers with a key or a credit-card sized electronic tag to unlock their car and start it without having to take it out of their pocket or purse. How This system works? The car does this by sending out a constant signal scanning the area around its perimeter.

When its key comes within a couple of yards of the vehicle, the signal ‘asks’ the electronic key or key card for an electronic password and the key gives it.

The kick start boot uses the same system, but under the back of the car. Once the car has recognised its key, all a motorist has to do is approach the boot with bags in hand, extend a foot as if making a gentle kick so that the shoe goes under the bumper, and hey presto, the boot opens.

The same applies in reverse for lifting bags or bulky objects out of the boot. A quick kick under the bumper and the boot closes. The system is called the ‘kick-activated automatic tailgate’, and Ford revealed it perfected the system with the help of volunteer ‘kickers’ over six months of testing. The system safeguards against accidental opening by being programmed to open only with leg motions but not when an animal runs under the car or when the vehicle hits a bump on the road.

Check out the footage video below about How the Kick Activated tailgate system works on Ford all new kuga 2012.

This stuff was designed to be used both indoors and outdoors, the AIRE Mask can work its magic even while one is sleeping, walking, or running, since energy is created from one’s breath. The iPhone charger has been equipped with small wind turbines that do the job of converting users breath into energy.

João Paulo Lammoglia AIRE Masks designer Said : “The consumerist tendencies of today’s industrialized society make the use of gadgets increasingly common, either by necessity or hobby. Though many of our gadgets offer benefits, they tend to consume a high amount of electrical energy. This may cause problems for the environment, especially if the energy used by these devices is derived from non-renewable sources.”
