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 … Read the rest
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
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
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 … Read the rest
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
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
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 … Read the rest
