Here is another great review by one of our new customers who added an i-gotU GT200 GPS Logger in their prized possessions. Rating the gadget a 5-star!
This is indeed an efficient and effective tracking device! It is also easy to use. I was amazed on how easy it was for me to have it work.
Knowing exactly where you are, and in some cases, knowing just where you’ve been in your travels can be invaluable. Be it finding the location of that unbelievable fishing spot or locating a party in the midst of suburbia, being able to have such an accurate sense of direction would sure come in handy wouldn’t it?
The really cool thing is that all of us can now be known as the Columbus or Magellan of our block, all thanks to a small tool, but amazing indeed, made available by the people of MrGadget, the “i-gotU GPS Travel Logger”.
ZTE Optik Android Honeycomb tablet
Next month ZTE will release Optik device – its new tablet computer running on Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system. The tablet is based on 1.2GHz dual-core processor and is equipped with 7-inch touchscreen with 1280x800px resolution, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, 5MP camera, 2MP camera for video calls, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, 4000mAh battery.
Sophisticated cameras from MIT
The next few years, a person’s privacy may become less safe. Thanks to sophisticated technology, the individual one can interfere with the privacy of other individuals. For example, in the photography world, has now found a camera that can penetrate walls. With this camera, though hindered bulkhead wall thickness, the photographer can still take pictures.
Camera that can shoot behind these thick walls, is the result of researchers at MIT’s Camera Culture Research Group. Not long ago, they’ve managed to find a method to do just that.
“People familiar with the echoes, but echoes of light can also be used,” said researcher told of the Camera Culture Research Group MIT Ramesh Raskar, Tuesday, March 20, 2012.
The principle of echo applied to the laser light to see objects hidden in the corner. Laser fired from the camera to a second wall which is opposite the barrier wall. By uneven wall surface, the laser will be scattered throughout the room. Some of the particles of light will reach the surface of hidden objects and reflected back to the wall in front of him. From the wall, the light returned to the camera.
Although released simultaneously, the laser wave back to the camera in a different time. Arrival time difference is measured by a camera with shutter speeds of up to two picodetik (2 a trillion per second).
Laboratory tests carried out by hiding behind a wall made dolls. Their homemade cameras managed to see the shape of the doll. Although not reflected accurately the form of dolls, but testing can accurately reveal the body of the photographed object.
Behind the camera, the researchers set up a computer equipped with software that can map the laser feedback. “Processing using mathematical techniques,” he said.
Unfortunately they have the computer software is still too slow to process the data so much. Currently it takes a few minutes to get the whole picture. They hope in the future could peek behind the objects in the room no longer than 10 seconds.
