Qwerkywriter – the vintage keyboard for your tablet needs

If you’ve been following along, then you’ve probably noticed I’ve got a thing for vintage looking keyboards. Something about the click-clack sounds and the round keys just makes it seem like you’re really doing something. The Qwerkywriter is the vintage keyboard for modern times that started it all.

This keyboard is built to work with mobile devices and connects with them via [...]

Click now, Focus later!

It has been 4 years since Lytro debuted its camera and we feel that NOW’s the correct time to be talking about it. 4 years ago, this camera came to the surface as the world’s first camera that could click a picture first, and then focus on the subject later. Still sounds like a dream, but the technique of Light Field Photography enabled the camera to capture the entire scene in focus and would then allow you to blur the background, or foreground AFTER clicking the picture.

The reason this is so relevant today is that photography is more integral to our daily lives NOW more than ever. We’re constantly clicking selfies and images, generating more than 4 billion photographs per day (we were at 1.8 billion in 2014). So much so, that phone companies have begun upping the ante on the cameras, with flagship phones having dual lens cameras to create a sense of depth.

However it’s important to remember that Lytro does that with just one lens, and allows you to focus on objects after having composed and clicked your picture. This is what we have now, but I imagine the future holds Light Field Cameras in smartphones. Imagine only having to focus on composing the photograph, rather than tapping on your screen to focus on subjects! With the Lytro, you have full control!

A ride for the wanderer of the future

mahindra_offroader_1

This modern-world concept SUV is titled the Khoji and is designed for India in 2035. The car is designed to be a fully-electric adventure SUV, and to dominate the massive variety of terrains found in the country.

The Khoji (translating to Wanderer/Explorer) like all of Mahindra’s UVs has a fully electric drive train. It even ditches doors for a rather unique approach where the entire exterior lifts off the chassis to allow a driver to sit within. It even features a rather unique hexagonal smart-glass tiling on the front and sides that turns transparent when the car is being operated, and opaque when the car has been switched off, shielding the car’s insides from heat and direct sunlight when being operated in places like deserts, because no one enjoys sitting inside a scorching car!
