Carry Your Laptop The Way The Kids Do

Are you tired of lugging your heavy and bulky laptop (particularly an older model) in a traditional laptop case? Why don’t you take a page from your kids’ book — and carry your laptop in a backpack? You’ll find it easy to walk with a backpack, and carrying a backpack computer case on your shoulders will leave your hands free for carrying other items, or holding on to a railing, etc, when walking. I spent a considerable amount of time reading backpack reviews and here’s ome of what I’ve learned:

First up is a backpack computer case from McKlein. Its dimensions are 18″ x 9″ x 13″, and it weighs just under 9 pounds. It is called the McKlein R Series DIVISION Nylon, 18″ Detachable-Wheeled Laptop Backpack. The regular list price on this item is $160, and you can purchase it in a silver/gray or red/black color scheme. With this backpack computer case you actually get to cases in one, as the wheels and handles are completely detachable, allowing you to carry this computer case on your shoulders as a backpack when not using the carrying cart.

This backpack computer case has an organizer section for your cell phone, writing instruments, business cards, etc. as well as a zipper pocket located upfront for small miscellaneous items. As a bonus, when you purchase this backpack computer case you also receive a protective waterproof cover and a detachable cell phone case which you can attach to your chest strap to give you easy access to your cell phone.

Another great manufacturer of computer cases is Kensington. For just under $70, you can purchase the Kensington 62232 SaddleBag Sport Backpack. This backpack computer case is designed to fit 15-to 17-inch notebook computers. It features anergonomically-designed series of side panels to provide extra comfort while carrying it, a waterproof bottom, and the computer compartment has only one zipper and no flaps to make it easy to retrieve your laptop when you need it. The zippers on this backpack computer case are also reflective — a big bonus if you will be walking on the road — or across the campus — at night.

Another major manufacturer of backpack computer cases is Samsonite. The Samsonite A66084620 Quad Backpack has a regular list price of just under $35. It comes in four different color schemes: Dark Khaki/Pale Khaki, Charcoal/Black, Navy/Charcoal and Bordeaux/Charcoal.

Drones Are Transforming News Media

Due to the evolution of drones and the drone cases for extra portability, the media now have a new means to approach and cover a story, providing consumers with new angles, both literally and figuratively, on the news as it’s happening. A few stories from last year highlight this trend:

Drones Are Transforming News Media

The New York Times made extensive use of drones in media coverage and highlighted how the new technology made this reporting possible. A story on the impact of the Syrian Civil War on Aleppo captured using drone footage was featured on the front page, and, realizing the impact drones had on coverage, the newspaper put together a list of top stories it told through drone footage across the world.
CNN launched a team dedicated to flying and operating drones as part of expanded news coverage. The news network used drones as a way of augmenting its traditional television coverage, providing the benefits of traditional aerial vehicles such as planes and helicopters, and the improved vantage point they can provide, but for a fraction of the cost.

Drones were also the cause of governmental action, with police and local authorities imposing no-fly zones to forestall the possibility of media coverage using drones. During civil unrest in 2014 in Ferguson, MI, police requested that airspace be closed off to prevent media from gathering footage. Similarly, authorities instituted no-fly zones in the vicinity of protests at Standing Rock, ND, which protestors and journalists claimed were to prevent coverage of the protests and the acts of police.

Using drones is already transforming the media, and that will only increase as drones become more widespread and technically able. As authorities are forced to create regulations that permit more widespread use of drones, this trend will only increase moving forward. Drones are not just toys, but enterprise tools as well as part of a new wave in media.

Drones turned the corner in 2015 to become a popular consumer device, while a framework for regulation that legitimizes drones in the US began to take shape. Technological and regulatory barriers still exist to further drone adoption.

Drone manufacturers and software providers are quickly developing technologies like geofencing and collision avoidance that will make flying drones safer. The accelerating pace of drone adoption is also pushing governments to create new regulations that balance safety and innovation.

Safer technology and better regulation will open new applications for drones in the commercial sector, including drone delivery programs like Amazon’s Prime Air and Google’s Project Wing initiatives.

BI Intelligence, Business Insider’s premium research service, has compiled a detailed drone report that forecasts sales revenues for consumer, enterprise, and military drones. It also projects the growth of drone shipments for consumers and enterprises.

The report details several of world’s major drone suppliers and examines trends in drone adoption among several leading industries. Finally, it examines the regulatory landscape in several markets and explains how technologies like obstacle avoidance and drone-to-drone communications will impact drone adoption.

Nanotech Night Vision Glasses – No Longer Futuristic??

It is no secret that we have seen a surprisingly huge boom in night vision technology. After all this is ultimately what won the war against Bin Laden all those years back. There isn’t a fraction of doubt in my mind that had night vision not existed, we would never have been able to locate this now infamous terrorist.

With such an exceptional piece of gear, it is no surprise that the United States of America have such strict policies regarding the export and use of night vision equipment in and around the states.

There are currently 4 different grades on night vision available on the market.  Generation 1 obviously being the older technology and Generation 4 being the most recent. Generation 1 night vision is probably the most common, The reason – it is Cheap. While your average hunter and outdoor enthusiast isn’t exactly looking for complete military grade specs, they are looking for something that will enable them to see in the dark.

Generation 1 night vision tends to be quite grainy and low quality. Taking one step up to Generation 2 see quite a huge difference in clarity and capabilities.

Unfortunately for those of us who currently use night vision gear, we have to deal with the clunky ” World War two look) As it currently stands today, not much has changed in terms of the sizes and look of night vision gear. One has to sacrifice comfort for capability. Is this all about to change?

The discovery of Nanotech may just help us move away from this prehistoric looking kit to something that is far more capable and light weight. Rumor has it that experts are tackling this new technology in the hopes of releasing night vision glasses that require little to no external power and that look like regular everyday glasses. Will this help our soldiers in feeling less disorientated? Will it help our soldiers in being less fatigued? Well only time can answer those questions. We hope to see a massive change through all night vision gear including night vision binoculars and monoculars.

A team from the Australian National University has created aluminum gallium arsenide more commonly known as “nano-antennas”. These antennas are capable of picking up photons in the infrared range, combined with other photons which divides the wave length in a process called second-harmonic generation.

“We managed to fabricate very teeny, tiny structures. Those magic structures are capable [of] changing the intensity of the light, change the shape of the light, and, at the same time, change the color of the light,” Mohsen Rahmani explained excitedly, in a video put out by ANU. “Our eyes are capable only of seeing light in the visible spectrum. If we can fabricate an area of nanostructures on flat surfaces like glass, at the end of the day we will be able to convert invisible light in the nighttime or dark areas into visible light.”

We sincerely hope that this will pave the way to more impressive Nano-tech and we are looking forward to seeing what this means for night vision gear.
