The launch of Polaroid Snap takes me down memory lane. I recently took a trip to a quaint hill station Kasuali in India where time stood still. Every facet of the picturesque colonial city demanded to be captured in the exclusive frame. However, much to my dismay the only piece of camera I had was the one etched in my smartphones. I did try to capture the beauty of Kasuali in my phone, but the digital pictures failed me miserably. This is when I felt that I needed a camera, which could seize the moment, which could give me exclusive relics. The Polaroid Snap is one of these, it gives you instant pictures, which you can touch and feel. The camera is 10-megapixel and creates snaps with Zero ink technology and heat activated dye crystals. It lets you store picture in the micro SD card and new photos can be [+more]

Safe Defender

An all new wifi chip has been developed by Adrian Tang, a researcher at Jet Propulsion Lab at NASA, California and MC Frank Chang, professor at the University of California-Los Angeles. It will supposedly enhance the battery life for all wifi devices. The report has been published in Popular Science. More Details The report also reveals that the chip works by reflecting a signal constantly sent out via a personalised router. Therefore, in absence of an own signal, the chip could help devices last much longer than what we see now. Tang has gone on air saying, “Because you are only imprinting on a wi-fi signal, you are not generating it and do not need power.” Touching New Speeds The main issue that had been holding back such a chip mechanism was isolation of a fixed signal that was being reflected back since the original signal also underwent constant reflection.
