Some communities have a neighborhood watch, and I like that idea. There is something to be said about knowing there are people, awake and alert, that care about you, your home, your town. I’d like to see the concept taken up a notch, I’d like to know when there’s an accident clogging up my way to work, or that a break-in has occurred at a business in town… that would be some good information to have.
Come on, admit it, your mobile device has become something you absolutely, positively, cannot live without. It is a link to your family, your friends, it’s your information source, your memories, your business contacts, your safety net, heck, your weather reports, alarm clock, and entertainment … just about every facet of your life. So who is out there protecting your precious device? You know the one, the one that holds your whole life in its memory…
As much as we’d like to think we always wrap our cables before shoving them in our bag (which is certainly well-organized to begin with), we sometimes forget. Of course, that leads to a tangled mess that doesn’t necessarily take a long time to undo, but is pretty annoying to deal with. Probably because we have to do it multiple times with various charging cables, headphones, and more.
Motrr, a name that is familiar with delivering high design robotics to everyday life, alongside Appologics, a specialist in mobile video, have worked together to streamline the process of shooting high definition videos as well as photography in a hands-free manner. Videography has been said to be the ultimate app for novice and expert camera enthusiasts, where it enables users to control all camera functions remotely, at the same time viewing the camera’s view in Full HD from a different browser. When mounted in a Motrr Galileo, which is a 360° robotic spinning platform for the iPhone and/or iPod, as users are able to pan/tilt their cameras remotely, not to mention Videography offering the ability to follow objects (such as faces), motion or colored objects automatically in order to ensure that they remain in the center of the view.
Yes, I let my 10 year old use my electronics, I’m not saying it’s done without fear. I try to instill upon her a healthy respect for my “stuff”. I like it to come back to me in relatively the same way she borrowed it, charged, scratch and dent free… so far we’re at about 98%, and to be fair, it might have actually been the gremlin that left my iPad on the picnic table in the rain…
Why are we so interested in looking at our faces? Does it make it think about what we used to look like, and compare it to the current version of ourselves? It could be personal growth, but oftentimes it’s a good way to validate yourself by posting tons of face photos online for social media sites to your followers to give you a confidence boost. Nothing wrong with that, but some people do get to be a bit excessive about it.
There aren’t a lot of items on my “things I hate” list, but on that’s right up there is coming home to my computer or iPad and finding my daughter has exhausted the batteries playing Minecraft and I am now required to huddle in the corner next to the electrical outlet, attached to the charging cable. Why don’t they just make those things longer?
We can listen to music in a variety of ways. It can be on our own device, where we cherry-pick what songs are on there with specific playlists, CDs or records which play only what’s on them, online music stations which are also determined by you, or the radio. The latter of these options has local and national news, commercials, special events, music picked by the host or callers, and the main use for most of us, is using this medium for information in times of emergency. Aside from having a radio in your car, most of us don’t really bother with getting something that specifically works as a radio.
Having a stylus is grand. You don’t get smudgy fingerprints all over the screen of your phone or tablet, and it’s far easier to write with. There are several hundred thousand different types of them though, with variation from fine-point tips to different shapes and colors. Some options are even multifunctional, with an ink pen or flashlight on the other end.
