Developers can access tools to work on content and applications.
The materials being developed by Microsoft will run on Windows and, inter alia, are aimed at the development of future applications for the Windows operating system. These applications, in line which would provide Kinect, encourage the control computers with gestures and voice.
Kinect users have shown from the beginning his interest in the possibilities of the device. Since its release in November last year, there have been many developers, researchers and study centers have experimented with Kinect.
Applications have been developed since the creation of virtual reality systems to connect the device with other platforms such as Nintendo’s Wii console.
Microsoft has supported since the beginning of the investigation as a peripheral, and now the company goes a step further and has decided to publish the codes and tools for working with Windows environments Kinect.
The multinational considered Kinect possibilities are endless and that the step is giving help to revolutionize the way people interact with technology.
SunSmart UV radiation alert and could save many lives.
The application store for iPhone and iPad, which amounts to some 300,000 titles, adds a new one that could save many lives in
Australia. SunSmart is a simple application made yesterday by the Cancer Council Victoria and VicHealth to help users of these devices to protect your skin from ultraviolet radiation, causing about 90% of cases of skin cancer the world.
This country is one of 5 who suffer most from this disease, according to the website of the Colombian League Against Cancer, and the Australian Committee on Cancer estimated that every year about 1,850 people in the country for this cause, rather than traffic accidents or diseases like AIDS
SunSmart can identify which city of Australia is its user, or can be configured to what place you want to receive alerts radiation levels and the hours should be increased sun protection. Furthermore, in the main screen always shows the time slot in which users must protect their skin, the weather of the city, the ranges of temperature and maximum radiation level expected for each day.
Years, our bones and organs need more stability and support.
Choosing the right exercise equipment to help older people stay with the healthy lifestyle and fitness routine heart. There aredifferent types of exercise equipment in the market. The end result is to find what works for you, allowing less impact and falls within the specified range of motion to prevent injury and ease of use.
Hydraulic systems, fitness equipment, using hydraulic structures to meet the needs of older persons and their routines ejercicio.En many systems, aimed at older people also have less space and step ups, so no climbing involved getting on and off the equipo.Debido these systems using hydraulics, have little effect on seniors on treadmills legs and arms., elliptical, stair climbers and printing machines are popular among people Options include older machines to the chest, shoulder presses and arm, abdominal crunches, lifts and leg extensions.
A useful piece of exercise equipment for older people is a small trampoline bounce. can be used in place of exercise outdoors or at home is low impact. Trampoline and easy to use. Can be used to strengthen the legs and stomach muscles. Works directly on aerobic training while reinforcing, producing more lean muscle.
Air machines such as hydraulic, except it uses air instead of fluid force movimiento.Máquinas car in air are low impact and desirable choice among people mayores.Tal movement, like walking, version, execution and have no strong resistance at the end of the movement instead of using standard machines that can do many exercises on these machines, such as strength training and resistance training. also provide appropriate support for stretching and cool downs.
With the passage of chamber machines Notepad buffer capacity
Another option especially for step aerobics step is machine pillow. the application of this type of equipment is hydraulic and cushions, so do not come all the way metal floor or Word elderly can use such machines in the class, while watching television or cardiovascular diseases aerobics.
A traditional type of training equipment is a standard pool noodle. This is an expensive tool that can be used under all that water therapy pool noodles. provide forms of water exercises in the physical life and cool down after exercise to relax. also provide adequate support to strengthening the leg muscles and useful to those who have balance problems or arthritis.
The International Centre for Advanced Technology (CITA) of Ruipérez Sánchez Germain Foundation, based in Peñaranda de Bracamonte (Salamanca), is involved in a project called Smart Research on interactive whiteboard (experts and known as IDPs) in classrooms , which runs until 2010 and which also involved 25 schools in Spain and Portugal. Leading this initiative is Pere Marqués Graells, professor of Educational Technology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and Director of Teaching and Research Group Multimedia, and one of Spain’s leading experts in digital whiteboard.
“The PDI is an instrument that projected onto a white board all the information a computer can be connected to the internet, where everything is, so that creates the opportunities to share information and learn,” he says. In his view, the use of whiteboards requires little technical training, since “what is projected on a screen,” but also “with a pointer become touch screens and pen mode, which is known as ink digital, we can write up to include notes, for example, a picture of a piece of architecture. “
Despite this apparent simplicity, the CITA project and 25 schools aims to assess the implementation of this educational tool in the 25 centers that provide almost all IDPs in their classrooms. The idea is gradually to train teachers, implement new methodologies, overcome the problems which arise and achieve after two years that all teachers are excited and master the tool, “says Marquis.
“In my group we have over five years doing research. Teachers like this technology because it is easy and convenient, and believes that students are more motivated, “he says. Thanks to her, “are those students who project to the class work they have done and these views and participate more.”
However, this favorable response does not seem to be reflected in academic performance. “90% of teachers believe their students learn more, but then most do not get better grades. Given this disparity of data, the debate is what kind of activities being evaluated, “said the specialist, pointing to the possibility of change to change the criteria and the ways in examining knowledge.
So great is the revolution of new technologies? “Speaking of new technologies in general is dangerous because working with the PDI is very different than any other type of activity at the computer, which is a powerful tool.” In any case, offer “the ability to copy, paste, compile information of the moment” and, according to studies on information processing, thus further stimulates the right hemisphere, because it works more the image, and has different impact on learning, “he explains. So, your group will present new research next year with 20 centers, which include not only IDPs but also computer on the desk, “to see what can be done with both.”
In any case, “technology always leads to changes in the way of working. The board ended the lecture, the book released to the student of the transience of the word, and each tool can introduce new activities to facilitate learning. Before the digital whiteboard, blackboard and the book and have allowed the student to go at their own pace and not at the pace of the speaker, “says the expert.
Currently, there are two types of digital whiteboard, the interactive and what is not.Between 5 and 10% of classrooms have one, a figure that is “under the United Kingdom and ahead of Italy,” said the biologist, who believes that Spain is still at a level of the challenges intermedio.Uno is creating content for this new technology. “There are publishers who are making efforts, we must move forward in this line, create platforms for content and search of resources to facilitate the work of the teacher”
The year 2010 looks busy for the Acer Group in Taiwan. Already firmly on the area of smartphones, it should present various electronic gadgets and a portal for downloading applications.
We mentioned as early as March 2009 but is finally somewhere in 2010 that Taiwan’s Acer Group is expected to launch its owndownload portal applications, which will offer “hundreds of software, otherwise it is not the penalty call download portal, “said Jim Wong, president of the group’s IT products division, whose remarks were echoed by Bloomberg, throwing a spear competitors eager to start their own even without solid content.
The portal should be accessible to various products from Acer (smartphones and netbooks) and launched in mid-year. It will provide applications compatible with Android, Chrome, Windows and Windows Mobile, as free or paid, so that interested developers and attract buyers who can customize their hardware Acer.
Readers e-paper made the show at CES in Las Vegas in early January 2010. Acer will also own, has a monochrome display e-paper 6 “Ave a first launch planned in five countries of the European market, easier to access than the U.S. which are firmly implanted Amazon, Sony and Barnes & Noble.
Distribution agreements with publishers are under negotiation to provide content. Acer wants to profit from the forecast growth for this type of device while the market is currently structured.
