Why are All Tech Giants working on Hologram or 3D?

 In a world, where we have somehow sped through adopting video conferencing as the default way of communication, it is only logical to think about what happens next! In the last one year alone we have seen the rise of Zoom video calling to Microsoft Teams to Google Hangouts etc pickup the pace and cater to the exploding consumer demand. Up until 2020, all this stuff was planned for some where around 2022 when the mass public was equipped to make best use of these services. Believe it or not, in times of crises the general public is super fast in adopting to new technologies. It's sort of mass adrenaline pump through in a very short period of time. In this post today, we will explore what are the new age tech that will be a thing of normal 5 years or 10 years from now.  What has triggered this 3D Revolution ? In the recent Google I/O there was a brief video that was played that showcased a project they were working on and it went something like this :  You see what they are aiming

Apple is Entering the Car Market by 2024!

  Yes you read it right! Apple is entering the automotive market with its self driving technology and innovative battery solutions. Well, it was about time that they branched out to other sectors as the consumer electronics business was getting saturated. Except for 5G and few other minor innovations in display,camera and battery there's really not much of a technological advancement that can be seen in the near future. That's one of the reasons why smartphone chip companies have gradually started to move to automotive industry - the industry that has been seriously lacking innovation for over a decade .  In the last couple of years, we have seen Tesla pick up and revolutionize the automotive industry as if it was the lone company that had the vision to do so. At a time when competitors were lacking motivation, Tesla just disrupted the market with its self driving electric vehicles. And now they are the market leaders and every other car maker is following the suite. This is t

This Guy Built an ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) from Scrap Bike parts for The Specially Abled

We have all seen people getting creative with scrap parts and rigging them together to produce something productive. It's always interesting to see the creativity take shape over time and be helpful to the needy. Normally known for tearing things apart, Jerry from the very popular youtube channel - JerryRigEverything , recently uploaded a video on his channel showcasing something out of the usual videos he posts regularly. He and his wife have built together a Four Wheeler All Terrain Vehicle for the physically disabled so that they can go to places which are usually difficult to scale in a wheelchair.  Jerry was very specific to the name of this easily accessible vehicle he had constructed over the past one year as " Not a Wheelchair " and it definitely lives up to the name. He mentions that he has basically conjoined two bikes into one with wheels that can sustain all kinds of challenges thrown at them. Though he mentions that they named this invent

Best Non Chinese Alternative Smartphones in Every Price Range Ever

Wireless Charging and High Resolution Camera are almost Decade old Technology ! And Nokia did it first

Wireless Charging or "Qi" Supported Charging (pronounced as Chi) which has been doing the rounds across flagships since 2019, was in fact existing much earlier than you would have expected! That's right smartphone manufacturers are ripping you off! Just kidding. Well, they aren't completely ripping you off because the tech was available in 2012 but not yet perfected. If we are going to talk about 2012 , that's quiescent point in Nokia's history as most of you might now. It was the last year when Nokia was still a market leader in the mobile phones category. Before, handing over the reigns with almost no fight to Apple or Samsung ,they had unveiled a series of products that were easily 3-4 years ahead of the time and it's a shame that they had to drop out of the race at that time. One of the dope tech that was unveiled was the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 with Wireless Charging Capabilities that conformed with Qi standards.These were

Apple Mac Book to ditch the sluggish Intel for Good ?

There was a time when Computers/Laptops would be just assumed to have been based out of one entity and no one would even bother to look other way - it was none other than the semiconductor giant "Intel" (I know the tun.. tun tun.. tuun sound just popped into your head the moment I said "Intel")  But, over the years the "giant" status has been challenged by its competitors ARM , Qualcomm , AMD , NVIDIA and others. It has only gone on to harm the market share for Intel.  One of the major drawbacks as seen by most analysts is that Intel's foundry was somehow not able to keep up with the latest technological trends. Intel's own design and foundry were the primary reasons it was able to pull of such huge margins. TSMC,Samsung,Global Foundries and many other third party foundries have been able to invest heavily in R&D and have made leaps of advancement in downsizing the node. Currently, the "5nm" node is gearing up for shipment

How do Smartphone Manufacturers Fool you ?

If you are one of those people who waits eagerly for new flagship every year , this is going to be rather enlightening article altogether. Like most of you I used to keep tracking latest updates on the flagships being released in the near future and the leaks and rumors would help maintain the excitement. While all that is fun , there are few things that Smartphone manufacturers have been doing for the past couple of years that is just plain marketing strategy and hardly has merit. This is how they are deceiving us : 1. Highly Exaggerated Unnecessary Features : 2019 was a year of 64 MP cameras with its final quarter being about creating hype about the 108MP camera sensors. Has anyone thought of why is this feature even necessary ? Sure you get tons of pixels jam packed on a 6inch display but will you be really using it on daily basis ? There are so many videos that show the affect of these huge resolutions, if you observe they zoom in like 5-10x to see the difference made. In

Why is it not Easy to Move Electronic Manufacturing from China?

credits: Republic India News Channel There has been a growing sentiment of going against China due to the ongoing pandemic situation all over the world. It's moving from being just a sentiment to actually inflicting economic attacks on the largest populated country in the world. Major companies like Samsung , Apple , KIA Motors , etc are trying to shift their supply chains from China to countries like India, South Korea, Indonesia and Vietnam . It's just not easy to shift massive legacy stable supply chain in a jiffy ! Here are some of the top 3 Reasons :  1. Cost and Setup : China provides a large area of its land for manufacturing and along with that provides cheap labor. Whichever industry you pick up the bare metal parts are manufactured in China and the costs involved in manufacturing have already offset the R&D costs which is the primary target for any company,  credits-Global Times 2. Well Established Supply Chain : Due to its decades of experience

Why is no One Talking about the Super Fast LPDDR5 RAM ?

In the world obsessed over the Camera, Performance, Battery life , blah blah of a smartphone, most of the "elite" tech reviewers have terribly missed out on the massive revolutionary feature that has been introduced this year in 2020. It's a widely accepted fact that the RAM decides heavily the performance of the CPU no matter how many "Gigahertz" it's able to clock. Yes, I am talking about the new Low Power Dual Data Rate RAM - LPDDR5 ( I bet most of you didn't know the abbreviation :P )  To understand why I am stressing so much on the "RAM" part , let's see through an analogy. Imagine the CPU to be really fast 100 lanes highway and the RAM to be a 10 lanes bridge at the end of the highway. Now, you can zoom past the highway with 300 MPH and reach the bridge as fast as you can but you would be slowed down by the 10 lanes bridge. Now, add a dozen more of this CPU's all converging to this one bridge. That's like 1200 bus la

Why does Android Copy Apple ?

There's a war out there .. a fierce one ..and there's no definitive way to decide the winner ..both are tough competitors .. it's getting scarier by the day ...I think I will end with that build up as I am pretty sure you got the drift - the Android vs iOS War! When the first iPhone had released with this futuristic design and software, I was an instant fan. Granted that I was just a naive teenager at that time , over the years I have gathered enough to make the right decision which is - Neither of them is perfect...Just kidding Android all the way! But there's one thing I have always observed is be it any kind of ridiculous feature and however it may be criticized Apple used to come up with it and make truck load of profit off it hands down! They were bold and courageous enough to take the risk and also excel at it. The Android counter parts which initially would mock it , eventually would launch a cheaper phone with similar feature.  source:cnet,pocket-lint
