    Why Install Home Security Systems

    Your family is the most important thing in the world. Today you can never be safe enough when it comes to protecting the people you love and your home and all of your investments. Due to the increase of people who are deciding to install home security systems, people who may actually pose a threat are beginning to refrain from breaking in to people’s homes.

    By installing a home security system you can reap many benefits beyond simply protecting your material assets. First of all, a home security system will greatly increase your peace of mind when you are on vacation or away from the home. There is no need for you to stress about whether or not your home is vulnerable to potential robbers when you are meant to be relaxing on vacation. That ease of mind alone is worth all the money in the world. Also, when you are at work or away from your home every day, you should not be worrying about whether or not your home is safe.

    Not only will installing a home security system keep your property and belongings safe when you are away from your home, but often people have to leave pets by themselves during the day. A home security system will keep your pets safe as well.

    Many elderly people who are living on their own feel increasingly safe once they have a security system installed. An entire system is completely worth the money knowing that you can greatly decrease the anxiety experienced by one of your elderly loved ones. People deserve to feel safe at all times, and the last thing that an elderly citizen needs to feel is threatened at any moment of time.

    A home security system is valuable not only for when you are away from …

    UPS to Offer Unlimited Commercial Drone Delivery

    Commercial drone delivery officially kicked off in the US recently when the Federal Aviation Administration approved UPS’s unlimited flying freight initiative.

    Flying freight has for long been the dream of United States’ courier services like UPS and big box retailers like Amazon who will stop at nothing to reach customers.

    These companies have been calling in drone experts and working with them to engineer drones powerful enough to deliver packages to customers. Most companies eyeing flying freight have been doing field trials and experimenting with short deliveries to see the capability of their innovations and strategies.

    And after all efforts to come up with the effective commercial delivery drones, the FAA has finally allowed the UPS to offer unlimited drone delivery. UPS went public with inspiring news of FAA’s official approval of its full commercial drone airline which will now enable it to grow its present small flying freight service to a nation-wide network.

    During the announcement, the postal service also mentioned that it will begin by planning drone delivery services particularly for hospital grounds all over the US, and then prepare similar solutions for other industries.

    UPS is proud to be the first full commercial drone delivery service thanks to its close association with the supervisory body during its developmental and experimental stages.

    Soon after its approval, UPS also became the number one commercial flight service to deliver packages by drone to a real paying consumer outside-of-line-of-sight owing to an exemption it received from the authorities.

    Unlimited delivery, Unrestricted Weight and Delivery at Night

    UPS also became the first to receive FAA’s topmost level of certification—the Part 135 standard. The Flight Forward certification allows UPS to make unlimited drone deliveries with an unlimited number of remote operators in control. This kind of unrestricted delivery will allow UPS to measure …

    The Next Generation of Personal Computers

    There are all kinds of interesting ideas out there about how the computer interface in the future will look. Lasers currently used in various uses from cutting diamonds to improve eye sight have been around for years and are the basis for many films such as Star Wars. I believe for the immediate future, lasers will play a bigger and bigger role in how we interact with our computers. One trend that has become a reality is the projection of computer light onto or from a surface that allows users to manipulate data and send commands basically by blocking the beam with his hands.

    The richest version of this vision has been seen in futuristic films like Matrix. This system gives us a vision of a very abstract and iconographic interface of light that requires extensive body movements to operate. They seem to be far in the future, but they really aren’t.

    As I write this there is already a keyboard out there made entirely of laser light, and its operation, while visually appealing, is actually quite ordinary. By moving someone’s finger over the keyboard (the height can be adjusted and determined by the angle of reflection) the touch button signal light is blocked, activating that button. Although I’m sure the novelty of a lightweight laser keyboard will wear off and definitely has to have a little learning curve to operate, it does have qualities that will make laserware more popular. It is immune to spills, falls, and breaks. This will take up zero space and reduce clutter. Finally, this will be the first but important step in familiarity with the way we will interact and manipulate data and information in the future.

    I can’t wait until some of this technology is ready to use. They have been tested and …
