I just found this interesting stuff at my office, so just thought of sharing it .
Yesterday I received a spam mail and the interesting thing about it was that, it had some pictures of a kid. This is the first time I’ve ever received a spam mail like this.
When I checked the email id to which it was send, the email id is the same as mine except that the dot (.) was missing in the id. After some R&D over it, I figured out that the dot in your Gmail id is insignificant and you can login, send / receive mails even without the dot and it just works perfectly. Don’t believe me? Try it out!
I seriously don’t understand the logic behind this and why Google is treating your email id’s this way.
This stunning water fountain at Osaka Station, Japan, can display amazing patters and even the time. The ingenious system is based on dot matrix printer technology that emits illuminated water droplets that is controlled digitally. The patterns are said to reproduce images stored on a computer. I wish I had one in my bathroom which would help me check the time during my shower . Enjoy the video below
Here’s a much closer look
This was like a treasure found when I went to my native few weeks back. The device that you see in the picture was something that I made during my good old college days. This was one of the most exciting stuff that I ever did. So what’s so great about this device? Well, you can turn on/off any of your electrical devices such as lights or fan or whatever you can think of, using your computer, and this device acts like a controller. For all the techies out there wondering how this stuff works. There is a software application that I developed using Visual Basic which displays couple of buttons that act like virtual switches and are mapped to the electrical devices that you would like to turn on/off. The software controls this device and the device in turn controls these electrical devices.
So why the hell did I make this stuff??? I was too lazy to get up and switch on/off the fan every time the room got a bit chill/warm while I was on the computer.
