A Research done in Stanford University, California where fitness trackers from different companies including fitness trackers from Fitbit, Samsung and Microsoft etc had taken. They tested the accuracy of trackers but unfortunately here results shown that calories amount is not accurate. Heart Rate is almost accurate showing only 5% variation in results. In calories measurement it lags behind showing 27-93% variation in results.

So we can measure our Heart Rate and Steps taken, but we can’t believe on their calories amount.

A good news for Drone lovers. Here DJI launches its new Drone named DJI Spark which is very short in size. Interestingly the power given to you is bigger than its size where 17 minutes of flying time is given. Its range is also very good. It comes with a 2 axes stabilized camera that can record HD videos. You can directly control it from your smartphone. Its price is nearly 500 Dollars. If you want extra remote, then you would have to give 700$ for its bundled package.

So a very short drone in size and a good product. If you want to fly it. Tell me in the comments.

  • Instant Braille Translator

You know that when I talk about some text or manual book or some newspaper where it is very difficult to get its braille version.

For that people who are not able to see and don’t read it. Here a small device developed by MIT students such that if you put that device on some text at down its photo is clicked by a camera and then this device recognize it using OCR and then characters come outside in the form of braille at front side. Then a blind person can feel those characters and read it very easily. Hence its size is very small and it can work for a limited text. They are now planning to scan a full page to show the braille line by line. Then it becomes a good device for blind persons.
