Your Starter Guide to Developing Your Own IoT App

For most modern software applications, the developer doesn’t have to think much about hardware integration. Many hardware components the software comes in contact with—displays, pointing devices, keyboards, cameras, mobile device GPS receivers, etc.—have application programming interfaces (APIs) or are represented by standard interfaces built into the operating system.

A Brief Timeline of Internet-Enabled Devices

By Abdul Dremali on Jan 6, 2021 2:30:00 PM

Most computer mouse devices today are “optical;” they shine a light on the working surface (the desktop or a mouse pad) and use the reflected light to determine the speed and direction of the mouse’s motion. Earlier versions were mechanical, incorporating a trackball whose direction and speed of rotation was converted into electrical signals indicating the motion. (Mouse trackballs also had a habit of picking up dust and lint that interfered with the mouse’s operation. The optical mouse was a major improvement in this area.)

Limitations That May Shape Your Mobile App Design

“We need to build a mobile app!”

“Sure, boss. What exactly should this mobile app do?”

From Concept to Design: Alternative Ways to Prototype

By Abdul Dremali on Dec 16, 2020 2:30:00 PM

One of the great innovations of the modern age—something even more useful than the beer-can hat—is mapping applications such as MapQuest and Google Maps. Not only can they show you the fastest way to get from A to B (accounting for traffic, construction, one-way streets, and other obstacles), but they can give you alternatives, such as those favoring or avoiding freeways or scenic routes. Some applications will even give you the best routes for traveling on foot, by bicycle, or public transportation.

Enabling Safe Vaccine Transport

By Abdul Dremali on Dec 10, 2020 9:38:11 AM

Have you ever thought about what happens to a package when you turn it over to a shipping carrier for transport? Do you have a sneaking suspicion that they don’t really pay attention to markings such as “Fragile,” “Handle With Care,” and “This End Up”?

In most cases, you have no way of knowing how your packages are handled in transit. The fact that mishaps sometimes do occur is the reason why most carriers offer some form of insurance against loss or damage.
