Creating infographics using online tools has never been easier. In the last few years a number of online tools have emerged that allow anyone to create great visual content. Whether you are working on a project for work, personal use, or social media, each new project starts with a template.

How to Turn a Cardboard Box into a Cheap DIY Smartphone Projector Smartphones and tablets are great for watching movies and videos while you're out, but at home, the screen is just too tiny.

Easy Chart Builder plugin for WordPress Easy Chart Builder makes it easy to incorporate sophisticated review charts and graphs directly within a post, page, and even a widget. Hey, its free. Try it out. homeos It is no secret that homes are ever-increasing hotbeds of new technology such as set-top boxes, game consoles, wireless routers, home automation devices, tablets, smart phones, and security cameras. This innovation is breeding heterogeneity and complexity that frustrates even technically-savvy users’ attempts to improve day-to-day life by implementing functionality that uses these devices in combination. For instance, it is impossible for most users to view video captured by their security camera on their smartphone when they are not at home. Heterogeneity across devices and across homes also makes it difficult to develop applications that solve these problems in a way that work across a range of homes. To simplify the management of technology and to simplify the development of applications in the home, we are developing an "operating system" for the home.

Benjamin Shine I'm very honoured that my All-Ways New York egg sculpture has been selected to promote The Faberge Big Egg Hunt, which is taking place in New York over Easter. The exhibition features over 250 egg sculptures by leading artists including Jeff Koons, Julian Schnabel and Tracey Emin. The eggs will be hidden throughout the city before being auctioned to raise funds for Elephant Family and Studio in a School. Constructed from 52 New York street signs, All-Ways New York pays homage to the many varied streets and locations that underpin the diversity of this inspiring city. My egg will also feature on T-shirts and other Big Egg Hunt products, which will be on sale for a limited time through Saks Fifth Avenue and online. The proceeds from these sales will also go to the two charities involved.

Amazon owns the patent on that Today a photography blog unearthed another strange development in America’s ongoing patent train wreck: Amazon was recently awarded the intellectual rights to taking pictures of people in front of seamless white backgrounds. Critics of the deal from the tech and photography worlds are split on what they see as the bigger affront: the gullibility of the US Patent and Trade Office, or the genius of Amazon’s patent lawyers. The patent, which you can read here, was originally filed in 2011, and has the fittingly sparse title, “Studio Arrangement.” It takes five pages of dense text to explain the photographic innovation at issue. There is a diagram that, TechDirt points out, “pretty much looks like every photo studio in the history of photo studios.” The Amazon technique is illustrated in their patent filing with this flowchart:

Thinglink : 7 façons pour les journalistes d’utiliser l’image interactive Toute l'actualité Bloc Une salle de sport sera construite ici Data Distribution Service (DDS) Imagine a world where cars are able to navigate safely to their destinations and find parking without a driver; where patient monitoring systems are smartly integrated to provide error-free alerts and doctors are able to keep track of homebound patients’ health. This world is no longer a vision of some distant future or a science fiction movie. Every day more and more devices are becoming connected allowing smart machines and systems to perform functions that were not possible before. This convergence of machine and intelligent data is the Industrial Internet (alternatively known as the Internet of Things or machine-to-machine/M2M communications). OMG’s Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard is a protocol for the Industrial Internet. It enables network interoperability for connected machines, enterprise systems and mobile devices.

Remarkable Images Of Volcanic Lightning, A Scientific Mystery As someone who had recurring nightmares about volcanos her whole life, it’s unfathomable that some people seek the thrill willingly. But a whole industry has sprung up around the concept, with tourists--mainly, photographers--paying to be taken to the precipice of one of the thousand or so active volcanoes on Earth. They are the “gates to Earth and eternity,” in one enthusiast’s words.
