Hologram Technology

Remember when you were younger and would watch a Sci-Fi film with flying cars, robots and holograms and think to yourself, “I wonder when we’ll be in the future?” Well don’t look now but you’re already in the future. There are plenty of robots, but how about those holograms? Still waiting for those? Well take a look at HOLODOCK for your hologram needs.

Unlike other holographic displays that project the image inside a transparent pyramid-like structure or behind a transparent flat sheet positioned at an angle, the HOLODOCK allows the 3D holographic image to hang and move in the air.

This is a lot like the holographic image of Princess Leia being projected from R2-D2 or 2-Pac appearing at Coachella to perform California Love next to Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. To get it going all you need to do is set a tablet like an iPad in front of the background structure of the HOLODOCK.  Once that is complete a 3D enhancement of the tablet’s image is then projected, making it seem to float in front of the viewer without the need for viewing glasses.

Now what’s even cooler is you can turn many of your favorite photos, videos or other digital images into a HOLODOCK holographic image.   The options are limitless. The HOLODOCK will be ready for release around Fall 2016 with an estimated price around $100. Get a head start on HOLODOCK Hologram creation by signing up for your free HOLODOCK Video Editor software today! Find out the details at theholodock.com and for more information about the hologram world and HOLODOCK.

Safe Ride-Sharing App

App Watch

Ride-sharing apps are super popular these days, but it seems like some of the more popular ride-sharing services are always in the news for incidents with unsafe drivers or disorderly passengers. Well, for a different ride-sharing experience check out KROOZ.

You start by requesting a driver from your location, and one will be dispatched. The fare estimator will show you how much the ride will likely cost. You are then sent all the details of your driver. KROOZ has a communication system that allows you and the driver to text and call without the need to give out your personal contact information. Friends and family can follow your trip progress and notifies when you safely arrived your destination. And there’s even a panic button in case of an emergency. We think that these are some truly great features that can come in handy if you ever feel uncomfortable during your ride. And alerting your friends or family that you arrived safely even if you forget to text them is a great feature for us worry warts.

Now from the driver side of things there are some real perks here. Drivers are compensated at a higher rate than other similar apps. For one thing, they keep 100% of their tips. And in case the ride is cancelled or the passenger is a no show the driver still gets paid. This is where the app truly differs from it’s competitors when it comes to providing for it’s drivers. And a happy driver leads to a happy rider.

If you’re interested in being a driver yourself or just want to use KROOZ to get around town, download it for free on iOS or Android devices by heading to your app store or mykrooz.com today.

Giving Machines Sight

Tech Report

Vision is a vital sense that allows us to see and understand the world around us. Now if vision works so well for living things, what are the possibilities if we gave non-living things, like machines, the ability to see? KuvioVision does just that.

This unique vision software platform gives machines, devices and other non-living entities the capability of seeing. By adding sight these machines and devices can identify, gauge or inspect independent objects to learn more about the world around them. Computer vision has been around for a while but due to recent quantum leaps in processor technology and smart devices the use of it is expanding rapidly. KuvioVision allows users to develop vision systems for any number of uses. Simply use a graph and sample images to describe the application and KuvioVision does all the rest. There’s no need for you to understand computer programming. You can use it in various computer and embedded processor platforms like any Intel processors including ATOM and Edison or ARM-based SoC’s. KuvioVision takes care of the execution and connects them to a local or global network automatically.

In their own words “Every system and component of an automobile can be made better using machine vision. Using machine vision systems in the process enables automotive part manufacturers and assembly plants to improve high quality and better throughput.

KuvioVision unleashes the power of modern smart cameras and vision controllers or PC’s with remote cameras to improve quality and efficiency in automotive production. KuvioVision applications can be graphically developed and executed immediately in many smart cameras, vision controllers and PC based systems. KuvioVision shortens the time it takes to deploy vision applications and enables performance and cost optimization for every application. This enables automakers to use machine vision easier and faster to improve product quality and process efficiency.”

Now, engaging kids in the classroom can be a particularly difficult task. But what if we combined learning with something kids enjoy, like gaming? PaGamO is a unique learning app that allows kids to study any subject while competing in a game based on the principles of classic board matches like Risk and Settlers of Catan.

All the child does is click on a hexagon to occupy a new territory. A question will pop up. By answering correctly they expand their territory! While playing, they repeat class materials and finish assignments! The game keeps their motivation up and rewards you accordingly!

PaGamO encourages kids to build their own kingdom of knowledge, wealth, and land by answering questions and solving quizzes. All the core subjects like math and spelling are covered, as well as general knowledge and pop culture. Different versions of the game exist for all levels of schooling. Now it can be used independently by students at home but can also be used by teachers in the classroom. Teachers can create their own content and questions tailored to their students. They can even send assignments right through the app, track students’ progress, and it even offers the opportunity to hold competitions on the platform. Now it is a game so there is a ranking system to keep it competitive as well as a messaging system so kids can communicate with each other. They can even include pictures, video and audio files in your questions – make it as interactive as you like! Any subject in any grade can be taught through our PaGamO platform.

PaGamO is free for iOS and Android devices or through the web. For more information, head to pagamo.org.
