AMAZON ECHO

Amazon Echo is a wireless speaker and voice command device from Amazon.com. The device consists of a 9.25-inch (23.5 cm) tall cylinder speaker with a seven-piece microphone array. The device responds to the name “Alexa”; this “wake word” can be changed by the user (to one other choice at present: “Amazon”).

It would not be an exaggeration to say that the Amazon echo can be the closest thing to a Star Trek computer we can have in our homes.

What can you use it for?

Well, to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, to turn on the fan or space heater while reading in your favorite chair, or dim the lights from the couch, to watch a movie or other stuff…ahem ahem *coughs —all without lifting a finger…or even raising your voice!
Amazon Echo is voice activated. Embedded with far field voice recognition echo can hear you from across the room even while music is playing.
Tucked under the light ring on Echo is an array of seven microphones. These sensors use beam-forming technology to hear the user from any direction. With enhanced noise cancellation, Echo can hear you ask a question even while it’s playing music.
Priced around 16600-20000 INR this futuristic piece of technology is worth the money you spend on it.

Although these devices that are going to be available in the coming months will not exactly be ‘affordable’ they will totally be worth the money spent on them. We have the cheaper alternative right now, in the market, i.e. the Samsung Gear VR,  (Rs.18, 999; Amazon. in) powered by Face book’s Oculus VR technology. It uses a Smartphone to serve as a display—a Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 edge+ or Note.

3D PRINTERS!

3D PRINTERS

3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created. These amazing machines range from as low as 28,000 INR to as high as 2,00,000 INR.
So what can these babies make for you? Well just about anything! Except more printers of course!
