Leap Motion

Leap Motion is a tiny device that allows you to use your hand to interact with your computer other than using keyboard, mouse or trackpad. Just simply wave your hands above the Leap Motion controller and it can detect your hands movement. Think of it as Kinect for computers but smaller and works on both Windows and Mac.

It can tracks all 10 fingers up to 1/100th of a millimeter, your movements at a rate of over 200 frames per second and have wide field of view (150°) and a Z-axis for depth.

NFC Tags by Tapway

Always wanted to play with NFC tags to see how some tasks can be automated.

I am using iPhone 5 which does not comes with NFC capability, but for my work phone, I am using the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (LTE) which does come with NFC capability. Samsung has it’s own brand of NFC Tags called Samsung TecTiles, but unfortunately it will not be available in Singapore till mid-December 2012.

Nokia At Mobile World Congress 2012 – Day 04

Nothing much happened on the 4th day which is the last day of MWC, I did not go down to the conference because I will be flying back to Singapore that day.

Woke up at about 9am and went down for breakfast and went back up to my hotel room after that to get my stuff packed. I have requested for my transport to come at 2pm despite my flight is at 6.30pm as I wanted to claim tax refund (18%) and shop at Barcelona Airport!

Nokia At Mobile World Congress 2012 – Day 01

The first day of MWC begins at 6am as the bus will be coming to pick us up at 7am from the hotel.

The Nokia booth is located in Hall 7 which is about 8 minutes walk from the main entrance. The press conference begins at 8.30am. We reached the MWC venue at 8am but the main press conference hall is already full! So they placed us in an “overflowing” hall which is just beside it. This also means we can’t see the press conference live and everything is projected out for us to see in the hall.
