Could This Tiny $70 Box Be The Next Mouse? Maybe It’s so rare that technology feels like magic. That first time you sifted through thousands of songs in your pocket or used a touch-screen phone? Forgotten now. In using technology in our daily lives, the impossible is proven, again and again, to be entirely possible, and we grow numb to the magic around us. I only mention this because the Leap certainly looks like one of those magical moments in technology. About the size of a pack of gum, the device sits on your desk to read your gestures with 1/100 millimeter accuracy--or what the company claims is 200x more sensitive than anything on the market today. The company’s use case metaphor? To be honest, every bit of the story sounds too good to be true: From the CTO David Holz, who is just 23 (but has consulted for NASA) to the ridiculously low $70 asking price (on preorder now for release in early 2013). And already, I can’t help but wonder, what could happen if we aimed Leap at our faces rather than our hands? Pre-order Leap here.

A wide angle view of India Machine Scans Twitter For Mentions Of Fruit, Then Turns Them Into Smoothies We tend to think of data in one way: numbers. We can change the fonts, or we can graph them out. Maybe we can even use advanced visualization to make someone really grasp a particular figure. But numbers are always using one sense: sight. Could meaningful data be consumed in other ways? Quite literally, yes it can. “The goal was to break free and think beyond traditional means of data representation and analysis,” the design trio tells Co.Design. Interestingly enough, the 1:1 representation of fruit as flavor wasn’t the project’s original intent. Their literal representation of data is equal parts elegant and brilliant. [Hat tip: FlowingData]
Event Based Niche Blogging Complete Case Study Hello friends, firstly a very happy new year to you all. My new year started with a blast. I am not saying that I partied hard but I created a event based niche blog targeting the new year eve and it just rocked. Me and Vinay Goud worked on a Event Based Niche Blog and below is the case study of the same. How it Started? I occasionally do event based niche blogging to boost Adsense revenue. It was not about earnings but traffic. In the month of November I was researching for a good highly searched event to drive best possible traffic.

Things done for proper On Page Optimization: Firstly I have chosen Blogger/Blogspot as the platform for the new year blog. Off Page Optimization – Link Building: Here are the Results: Final Words:
The Times of India: Latest News India, World & Business News, Cricket & Sports, Bollywood This Sci-Fi Touchscreen Can Give The iPhone Real Buttons Most of us have adjusted to life with touchscreens. They lack tactile feedback, the rubber nubs that enable thoughtless use of our television remotes, but touchscreens create dynamic virtual buttons and open up vital screen real estate. They’re worth the thumb-numbing tradeoff. But what if we could have both, a dynamic touchscreen with real buttons? Impossible? Not at all. A startup called Tactus Technology has developed a thin “Tactile Layer” that sits on top of touchscreens in place of the normal surface (it’s no thicker). “If we look at high daily usage--say 100 times per day--we use less than 1% of a typical smartphone battery,” explains Tactus CEO Craig Ciesla. In their tech demos, an iPhone has physical number keys, and a tablet has a real QWERTY layout. “For the first generation of technology, the position of the buttons are pre-configured [in the factory],” Ciesla tells Co.Design. Now, ready for one last mind-bending trick?
