Sniffer algorithm leads robots to faint

Posted by Parth Barot on January 29, 2007

Although having the boys in blue tracking you down based on your unique aroma fingerprints might seem frightening, just envision the terror that would ensue if an ultra-keen robot was onto your trail from miles away. Massimo Vergassola and and colleagues at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France, have created an algorithm that can actually instruct a robot “how to move in order to gather as much olfactory information as possible.” The mathematical formula allows a machine to home in on “even the faintest of scents” by analyzing which direction the smell is getting weaker or stronger in, the frequency of the whiffs, and eventually, it could even take into account disturbances such as wind gusts. After trialing the algorithm on computer-based robotic models searching for a scent, he found that the theoretical guinea pigs moved in “S-like patterns” to sniff things out, which is quite similar to the method used by moths (renowned for their sense of smell) when trying to discover the source of an odor.

Air hostess ‘defamed’ on Orkut

Posted by Parth Barot on January 25, 2007

Orkut has again landed in a mess after a Delhi court ordered an investigation into the social networking site by the Delhi police over a complaint by an air hostess whose obscene profile was allegedly posted on the site by some unidentified net user.

So, now please try to secure your info on orkut. Don’t upload pics and don’t put your emails,phone numbers. Some people can abuse it and it can be harmful to you. This shows us that we shouldn’t use such open communities for our talk.

Brando’s 2GB SOAP MP4 Player reeks of iPod

Posted by Parth Barot on January 25, 2007


There’s iPod knockoffs, and then there’s the SOAP MP4 Player. This little gem unsurprisingly comes in black and glossy white flavors, boasts an unmistakable scroll wheel and stark white earbuds, and throws a few curves around the edges in a futile attempt to disclose its true inspiration. Furthermore, this device even rips a chunk of its name from another knockoff, providing two times the unoriginal fun, but sadly, we can’t find a direct link to Samuel L. Jackson. Nevertheless, this 2GB PMP plays nice with MP3, MP4, WMA, WMV, ASF, and WAV, and features a built-in FM tuner / voice recorder, seven pre-set equalizer modes, USB 2.0 connectivity, 1.8-inch OLED display, rechargeable Li-ion battery, and support for a plethora of languages. So if you’re looking to impress your clueless friends, or you just want a curvaceous 1G nano with a fancy screen a few extra niceties, you can pick this unit up now for $99.

What is Spring Framework for java?

Posted by Parth Barot on January 23, 2007

Spring is a Light weight Open Source Framework for java which uses POJO (Plain Old Java Objects).

It can be used for any kind of application,services etc.
Its better then EJB as it takes less resources.

So when you think that EJB is not properly utilized for your bussiness logic or its too heavy and you can do it with some other things then you can give a try to Spring.No need to use its classes. you can use any of you class in spring.

i am new to spring but using it since last 3 to 5 months. What i got through it is..

-Easy to configure through the xml file.
-Easy to use. You can use any class with spring. You just need to define it as a bean in the xml context of the spring.
-Main thing – IoC (Inversion Of control) means “To give the inputs”. We can load the class through the xml and can pass input params in constuctors or property setter methods.
-And the best thing is – database Transactions and SPs. we just need to make seperate class for SP and Spring will handle all the things related to opening,closing connections,handling synchronization etc. we just need to declare SP, its parameters and resultsets.And you are done!
-very simple to implment.Basically i have only used it for JDBC conections.I made Interfaces and then DAO class implements it accordingly.Then just define the DAO class in xml file as a bean. You can take it as a target element of ‘TransactionProxyFactoryBean’ provided by Spring framework.

i will write more on this when updated myself. :)

btw, you can find more on it on google. just search spring and you will get lots of links.

Dealzmodo: $13 1GB MP3 Player

Posted by Parth Barot on January 23, 2007


Technically this deal isn’t only good today, but it still earns the Dealzmodo moniker. The Yoto B100 is a barebones USB 2.0 MP3 player that will only run you $13 if you are willing to do a bit of translation. No confusing rebates or discounts, just good old renminbi to dollar conversion.
But I don’t know…I prefer my Chinese OEM gadgets to have that “if it were made in America we’d be sued by now” vibe.

LG’s BH100 Super Multi Player

Posted by Parth Barot on January 23, 2007

Well this is more like it. After waiting forever between the initial announcement and first retail availability of the first wave of HD disc devices, LG’s BH100 really rocketed to the shelves, and has just participated in its first unboxing (that we’ve heard of) mere weeks after the announcement at CES. We’re a little disconcerted by that big front-and-center dent on the box, but the unit itself looks just dandy, and gadgetaholic promises a full review in the coming days. But that’s not what you’re here for, you just wanted to see this little guy ripped from his Styrofoam cocoon and flap his little Red and Blue wings, so hit the read link for the whole event. Fly, BH100, fly.

JVC launches 5 Everio HDD camcorders and PC-less DVD writer

Posted by Parth Barot on January 23, 2007


First caught wind of JVC’s new line-up of Everios at CES. However, in the product onslaught to come, we somehow overlooked their new line-up of hard disk drive-based video cameras and accessories hitting Japan in February and destined for the US shores and beyond. So taking a step back, we bring you five new Everios: the GZ-MG575 (pictured) , GZ-MG555, GZ-MG275, GZ-MG255, and GZ-MG155. All five models pack a single CCD as opposed to the trio of sensors found in their MG505 and GZ-HD7 hi-def cam. That cut in quality comes at a discounted price though. The 40GB MG575 (¥140,000 / $1,155) and 30GB MG555 (¥130,000 / $1,072) both feature a 5.37 megapixel CCD (for 4 megapixel videos or 5 megapixel stills), 10x optical zoom lens, 2.7-inch LCD, and built-in LED light. The 40GB MG275 (¥120,000 / $990) and 30GB MG255 (¥110,000 / $907) take things down a notch with a 2.18 megapixel CCD (for 1.23 megapixel videos or 2 megapixel stills) and 10x optical zoom. Bringing up the rear is the 30GB MG155 which costs ¥90,000 (about $742) and touts a wee 1.07 megapixel CCD and monster 32x optical zoom. All models bring SD card support and a direct-to-DVD button for PC-less writing to DVDs when connected over USB to the optional ¥25,000 (about $206) CU-VD20 DVD accessory. Check the pink MG155 and a not-to-scale CU-VD20 after the break.

Sharp unveils 8.28-megapixel 1/2.5-inch CCD sensor

Posted by Parth Barot on January 23, 2007

Although Sharp has already busted out 10- and 12-megapixel sensors for ultracompacts, the firm is toning it down a bit and making things even more compact with its latest 8.28-megapixel 1/2.5-inch CCD rendition. The company achieved the resolution “using the 1.75 μm x 1.75 μm pixel cell, which is claimed as is the industry’s smallest class,” and comes in at 60-percent of the volume of Sharp’s previous model. Presumably hoping to cram these things into wafer-thin cameras of the future, it plans to start shipping the 10- x 10- x 3.5-millimeter sample packages later next week, while volume production of the ¥4,000 ($33) sensors are scheduled for April.
