    Leap Motion Hand Detection Controller

    Leap Motion Hand Detection Controller

    The hand gesture control that you can see in movies such as Iron Man’s Jarvis computer and the computer interface that Tom Cruise uses in Minority Report looks really cool and definitely a thing of the future. But that kind of future doesn’t seem so distant anymore, and that kind of human-computer control is now possible now that a company called Leap Motion has launched their Leap Motion motion controllers worldwide!

  • FacebookRSSHave you ever had those times where you “Like” a Facebook Page and you really actually like it that you can’t wait for their next post’ , only to find out that some of their posts got buried by the flurry of Newsfeed posts from your friends (some of whom you may like less than the aforementioned fan page)? Yeah, I thought so. One thing you can do is to visit each of those fan pages’ timeline and check out all their posts there, OR you can opt for a more elegant solution by creating its own feed in your preferred RSS reader. And that’s exactly what we’ll do in this GeekMadness tech tip!

    Some things about Japanese culture I will probably always find funny. For all their talk about how emotion shouldn’t be shown in public, the Japanese sure do love to cry! And when it’s the men that does the crying, it’s even more funny!

    This ad by au is offering a plan for smartphones. Taglines in the ad such as “Happy! With this I can now finally start using a smartphone!” and “If you get this, everyone will get this, everyone will be happy!” only adds to the fun!

    I’ve lived in Japan before, long enough for me to get to know their culture. I can’t say I’ve actually seen a grown man cry in front of my eyes, but I’ve watched enough TV to know that it happens. Then again, maybe if Smart or Globe Telecomms start offering data plans as low as these (Y1,480 is approx P700) here in the Philippines, maybe I might start crying myself!

    gas pump tea potI was wondering last night I was wondering which car I would buy next year as I was driving my dad’s diesel-powered Nissan Patrol. It’s common knowledge that an SUV generally consumes more fuel than a smaller car, and several motivational speakers and authors often talk about a huge amount of savings just by using a smaller car.

    It got me thinking: would the total cost of ownership of the Toyota Prius (The only hybrid car in the Philippines) be significantly cheaper than buying a compact sedan or hatchback?

    So I did a little bit of research and my findings were surprising! Read the rest of this entry »

    Saw this AWESOME laptop mod in the Ubuntu Forums and all I can say is joparox (owner of this laptop), you rock!

    I’ve considered modding some of my old laptops before, maybe adding stickers or sport a new custom paint job. But this guy DRILLED through his laptop case with a sanding bit, installed a couple of LEDs, and then covered it up with the clear acrylic from a CD jewel case before gluing it all together with silicon glue!

    Taking things further, here’s a steampunk laptop mod from Datamancer. Read the rest of this entry »
