No, This post is not on “Kaala Jaadu” or “Vashikaran”. ;)

This post is all about the black things that luring me and in my wishlist.

1) Nike FuelBand

Nike FuelBand

I put up some weight  in last two year and last year there were a flop try to reduce weight. Last year I did multiple running but that was not worth. I am using Nike running android app and if I wish I can get this Black Nike FuelBand which can be a nice motivation and handy tool to check how much calorie burn.

2) Scorpio Black Color

Black Scorpio is my dream car. I saw it very first time when some of my relative visit my village and I am very impressed by the Sporty look. Now a days there are many more SUV coming up with stylish design but still there is nobody is there as Scorpio still as my dream car. Now a days new model are coming up with Black and Gray.  I know it’s a long way but Scorpio I am coming to Mahindra show room for you soon. :)

3) iPad

iPad

A beauty from Apple. Main reason behind iPad is I want some device with iOS so that I can do some development/testing of hardware with iOS. I am also not getting that much chance to go theater and watch movie. iPad can be the best gadget for all social networking purpose, Movie, Gaming and above all some hardware interface with iPad.

4)3D printer

3D printer

3D printer market is booming like never before. Every few weeks there is a new project on Kickstarter coming up with some modification in design and functionality in 3D printer. A Black Boy from Zortrox is in my wishlist it’s model number is M200. 3D printer really makes things easy for you when you are planning to design some enclosure for product or want to check how accurate your design is. You can’t imagine what this 3D printer can print for you ! Almost anything.

5) Beaglebone Black

BeagleBone Black - Yes this small circuit kind of PCB is BeagleBone Black. This thing might not make sense to many of you but if you are aware of ‘IoT’ buzz then you might be know about this board. Along with Raspberry Pi and other SBC BeagleBone Black is also a very good handy tool for the developer you can load your embedded OS on this board and make your own small computer. Here is the list of the project developed on BeagleBone Black – Click Here

Who ‘ZEST’ Up My Life ?

20 07 2014

We are surrounded with lot of things, works and people but there are few things, events and persons who zest-up your life and that becomes the reason to cherish life. Today I am going to list down those all zest-up in my life

1) Cheshta

After almost 15 years there is a small little baby in our family as my sister blessed with a baby girl and you can’t believe now almost everyone in my family acting and talking like baby. I am also spending a lot time with her no doubt she is just one month old so need to take a lot care. Cheshta (Yeah Cheshta is her name) is the biggest zest-up not only in my life but for whole family.

Here is her first picture to internet world. Now my morning alarm is “Subah ho gayi mamu”

Cheshta

 

2) Trip to my village

Village has it’s own environment and charm. And it adds a lot of joy to my life when I visit my home in village, my grand parents and our farm. I usually avoid to visit village in summer as it heats-up too much and it is not easy to spend a 2-3 week there. Monsoon makes our village an awesome place. Now a days we are not getting much chance to visit village but I am planning to visit this year and get a nice break from work. Yeah I have planned to implement few things so my GrandPa can get some technology and make farm better. :)

Every morning stories about older days are amazing with some neighbour Dada.

Here are some pics from my last visit.

3) Electronics/Coding

Yeah Electronics and coding not only my business and work but that also zest-ups my life as I like to mess up with electronics things and love to make the things better for the world. Some people might think this thing as a boring as it is daily routine for the electronics engineers but I used to work on few things that actually brings a new knowledge to me and inspires me think for the way so that makes the world better.

Here are some tools/PCBs on which I work/worked.

4) Cricket

“Always Cricket First” I am a crazy cricket fan like most of Indian and following it hardly. Yeah I agree that it was cricket worldcup who ruined my % as there were exams right next day but I don’t care and don’t bother as it makes me mad. I still remember those old college days where we have world cup match everyday. ;)

Ready for fielding job?

5) Movie

Movie is a very good time pass in my life. I don’t care about hollywood/bollywood but yeah I like to watch hollywood movies mostly. Now a days I used to watch dubbed South Indian movie on television. I remember my college days when we used to watch 3-4 movies in a row.

Some of my favourites movie that I don’t mind watching multiple times are Braveheart, Vivah, Sholey.

Electronics circuits from On Board to On Body !!

21 07 2013

Long back I have seen Pranav Mistry TED talk and from that day I am a big fan of TED talk. This post is also about  TEDx talk by Matt Johnson.

I was surfing Indiblogger and come to know about The Idea Caravan. Which is sponsored by Franklin Templeton Investments partnered the TEDxGateway Mumbai in December 2012.

I was watching videos on http://www.ftideacaravan.com/ and I stumbled upon Matt Johnson’s TED talk – http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3U0gUOxnbqs.

Matt describe idea of implementing electronics circuits on body, Yes it’s BODY not BOARD. Normally we see electronics circuits on Printed circuit board. This innovative idea is all about electronics on body or on paper board they developed such material which we can use as simple paint and if you want to design your own small electronics circuit you just have to use this paint and bingo !. You have need not to learn Electronics PCB designing tools for layout or so just paint however you want to draw and this material is capable enough to turn LEDs ON and OFF. It can also be used as a signal track.

If you go thorough the video Matt shows the innovative use of such paint on craft project and Touch Pad.

I have some crazy idea based on this electronics innovation.

  • You can replace your switchboard by your own painted switchboard.
  • You can paint floor which such ink which is capable to sense light and if you are stepping out of room without turning off Home Appliances like FAN or LIGHT it will automatically turn it off.
  • Using this ink on Door for security ;  You have to draw some pattern on specific portion of door to LOCK/UNLOCK.
  • You can order such paint from Adafruit :- http://www.adafruit.com/products/1305

Have a look at practical example from Adafruit:

 

Please have a look at Matt Johnson’s video.

2011 in review !!

1 01 2012

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,600 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol !!

22 12 2011

MI-4

Mission Impossible-IV Ghost Protocol one of the most awaited movie of 2011.

:) :)

N O  P L A N .  N O  B A C K U P .  N O  C H O I C E

Mission Impossible-4, Tom Cruise,Burj Khalifa,Anil Kapoor ALL IN ONE enough to make movie most awaiting.

This time not going to write about the movie story as its widely available on internet and its better that if you really want to read.

I wonder why Tom Cruise is not going to make remake of Running Man as i saw in most of his film he is running every-time after goons and agents like Collateral, MI-2, MI-3 and also in this Ghost Protocol. ;)

India traffic scene in this movie shows that why Hollywood movies are not going to shoot in India as there is no chance for Hero to get a Car chase. :D

After seeing Tom Cruise’s Daud(Sanjay Datt Vala nahi) in this movie :- “TOM ko pakadana mushkil hi nahi namumkin hai” :P

Oh ! yeah i totally forgot,When Anil Kapoor asks to Paula :- “Kaisa Laga Mera Style”;)

She should reply:- “Jakkaas” :P

Mumbaikar, Where is such Car-Parking? *Thinking* And in last scene where Agent Brandt goes to lift there is sign board in some south indian language *Eek* Shooting Mumbai ka hai ya Chennai ka. :P

PS:- Because of lazyness this post spent their 3 days in Draft although its ready to publish. :(

PS2:- Want to read one more interesting review of same movie? Visit MayurPathak’s Review It’s better than mine. :D
