The Haptic Reader: Convert Words To Braille!

Introducing the Haptic Reader! It is designed to help blind people read real books. It uses haptics, a technology that plays with the human sense of touch by sending feedbacks to users. The Haptic Reader scans the page of the book and converts it to Braille. The electric signals create the projection of Braille characters on the flat surface.  It also has speakers to help those who cannot read Braille. It can be used as a bookmark, too!

After A Long Rest: Update v.03

After almost 2 months of being idle, Loading-Info is back on the block! These last two months of the blog's hiatus, the blogger has encountered some problems that needed to be prioritized first. And so I'm back, I'll be posting again some stuff. However, I wouldn't be able to post articles on a daily (constant) basis like what I said with my previous update. But still, information is information. And to inform is to inform. So just stay tuned. See you around. ☺

WolframAlpha: Redefining The World of Computing Data

The first time I heard about Wolfram|Alpha, I thought it was like Google, simply another search engine. But when I start using it, I realized that it's far different from Google, Bing or Ask. It's way different. So I read their about page and saw their description of this engine:
"It's a computational knowledge engine that generates output by doing computations from its own internal knowledge base, instead of searching the web and returning links."

Blog Ads: How Effective Are They?

Most bloggers use advertisements to gain income from their blogs. If you have been blogging for years and already have established a name and a readership, this might be a very good way to make money. The most common ad provider is Google AdSense. Almost every blog I see while blog hopping has an AdSense installed on their blogs. There are also other good ad providers out there like Nuffnang, Adhitz, Bidvertiser, and the list goes on.

Heya Readers! This is Update v.02! :-)

First of all, I want to say thank you to my subscribed readers via RSS and to all of those who often drop by to check out my articles. As of now the numbers keep changing. The day before yesterday, the numbers of readers are 8, then the next day it moved up to 15, then dropped to 6, then 5, then now moved up again to 8. I can honestly say that whenever the numbers dropped, I can feel my heart being hit a hundred times per nanosecond. haha. I'm not kidding. But when they moved up, I became happy all of a sudden.

Lomography: Capturing memories in your own stylish ways

Photo: A Lomography OKTOMAT Compact 35mm Camera with 8 Series Lenses

Lomography is the art of taking pictures that produces photos with diverse effects. It uses the traditional way of capturing and developing photos using film rolls. If I would think of an analogy, I'd say: "If photography is to news broadcasting, lomography is to blogging." When you read news articles online, you're reading the happenings the way it actually happened. It is narrative and direct to the point, without any blahs and ohs. When you read blogs, there is atleast a pinch of ideas from the blogger, making the articles entertaining to read.

First Night Flight of A Solar Airplane

Around 9am on July 8, the lightweight Solar Impulse HB-SIA airplane successfully landed after the first night flight ever by a solar airplane. The solar airplane took off from the Payerne airbase in Switzerland at 6:51am on July 7. The flight lasted for 26 hours and was the longest and highest flight by a manned solar-powered aircraft since many prototypes are flown using remote controls or are self-launching. It reached the maximum altitude of 28,500 feet during its flight.

The Wilderness Downtown Experience

The Wilderness Downtown is an interactive movie website created using HTML5, the next major HTML on the web. As I was browsing Twitter, I've read a tweet from Reddit saying "I cannot begin to describe how mindblowing this is.... (tip: view in Google Chrome) [programming] 358 points"

SPOILER ALERT: I suggest you should check this site first to have your own The Wilderness Downtown Experience as well. The following paragraphs will spoil you if you haven't checked the site yet. ;-)

Seaswarm: Oil Spill-Cleaning Robots

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) introduces the Seaswarm robots - an innovation that replaces the work of cleaning oil spills manually. Instead of hiring ships, which costs a lot, a fleet of these robots is enough to filter our seas from the damages caused by oil spills. It uses photovoltaic cells (or commonly known as the solar cells) to power itself and they can also reuse the oil they have collected. They also use the GPS and the Wi-Fi technology for communication so they can work continuously without human support. Once they are out of the cage, they would search for the area where there has been an oil spill and communicate with each other to gather there and start cleaning. Sounds cool, right?

Your Daily Dose of Random Information

As I was typing this, I'm still editing the design of my new blog. I have been thinking for a long time whether what type of blog would I want to create. Would it be about music? photography? movies? online business? And so I thought, why not create a blog that tackles them all?

And so, Loading Info is born. I'm still thinking if this blog will be read by so many people. Well, that's not my priority now, I'd just want to create an information blog that tackles just about anything. Because I'm a person who always seek new ideas. And I believe that information should always be available and free.

If you are still reading this, please take a time to vote on the poll I posted on the sidebar so I could get an idea on what topics do you want me to post here on the following days.

Stay tuned. :-)
