PROJECT PROPOSALS:Episode 2

December 1, 2009 Leave a comment

Hi there. I have been waiting for your proposals but i haven’t received any to date. So if you feel your idea might be stolen due to publicity, then i’ll be glad if you send it via email to: noahongoro@gmail.com
I have a wild thought that i will throw out to you all: I’ve been spending some time marvelling at the jet engine. It is actually one of the best inventions and breakthroughs in the aviation industry. When you look at the build, it looks light and it really is because there aren’t many complex components. Looking at the power it produces, then one realise how big this achievement was.
The jet engine operates on a simple principle; a mass of air is ingested, compressed, mixed with fuel, ignited and accelerated backwards to produce forward motion.
In as much as the jet engine is now the universal engine for most aircraft, it has several limitations. One good example is that it chokes at high altitude due to thin air making it strain.
I would like us to think about the next concept of aircraft that will be more convenient and efficient than jet engines.
My thoughts still convince me that we can retain the main concept of action and reaction and develop around it.
Newton’s third law is a very interesting phenomena and could be utilised in a technical way other than the literal sense. Well, i will give my idea and explanation in the next post. You can subscribe to my rss blog feed above or follow me on twitter to keep up to date with my blog post. For now, its a big thank you and bye bye.

GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEMS

December 1, 2009 1 comment

GPS are initials for global positioning system. This is simply a system in which the location of objects can be shown with the aid of satellites which have powerful telescopes which can view a large area on the earth surface. Furthermore, they can capture distinct detail of a minute object on earth, e.g the number plate of a vehicle.
Some ranges of phones are fitted with A-GPS (Assisted GPS) or integrated GPS. These hardware (receivers) are able to link with the space satellites (transmitters) to be able to give you your approximate position on the earth surface. The mobile phone developers were very careful to make this feature universal by developing softwares like Nokia maps and Google maps which are really helpful in giving the common person direct and familiar information on positioning. Otherwise, there would have been latitude and longitude co-ordinates to show this information. The latter is difficult to interprete and rather loses meaning on usefulness to the common market.
Nowadays, it has grown in popularity that people use it for purposes that sway away from the key objective which is navigation. A good example is geotagging where a mobile phone takes information on the location where a photo was taken and tags it on the photo. Added to this, several software developers are already utilising this feature on mobile phone applications, making it become an important feature in an all round phone.
Several other uses will come up, and the current flexible world is flexible and ready to adopt them!

The Revolution of Navigation

November 28, 2009 1 comment

Once upon a time, i had a phone which had some complex navigation sytsems and options which were largely unutilised. This included getting position co-ordinates upon request. Considering the fact that a phone is designed while considering that it targets a common market, the developers try to do their best to make certain features user friendly. However, navigation from a mobile phone was not something very popular and the usability wasn’t making the situation any better.
Over the few years, navigation systems have evolved and made vast improvements, especially on accuracy. The need for navigation tools also increased and this led to introduction of Assisted and fully integrated GPS systems in mobile phones. Nowadays, people move round buildings with the aid of these tools. The popularity has also spread to other devices and machines like cars, watches and music players. For those who have no idea of how the navigation tools work and its usefulness, check out my next post for details.

PROJECT PROPOSALS: episode 1.

So,its time to get to work. Am inviting all interested persons to come up with ideas we could develop and make them practical. Let’s not tasks our brains so much…any idea is good enough. What comes after the idea will now require more thinking. Example is the concept of a good friend of mine, Sanya Noel to figure out a way of having electricity wirelessly transmitted. Sounds crazy, but i always tell myself : The people of the tenth century perceived flying as a ‘crazy dream’. Well, now its not a wonder anymore. I am much inspired by Albert Einstein who proved and showed us that everything is possible. Who beleived that we could lose mass to generate massive energy? So i welcome you to the next series of posts that will discuss ideas.

Technology on the fast lane

Technology is something that never stops. It has been the driver of the world since ages ago. I always wonder if one day things will move back instead of forward. Anyway,it is just food for thought. Welcome to this blog and all contributions will be very much appreciated.
