Finally a smartwatch that looks smart?

Finally a smartwatch that looks smart? | AS Level ICT | Scoop.it

Gábor Balogh is a freelance designer from Hungary who, like many of us, wants an attractive, watch-like watch that just happens to be smart. The difference between Balogh and the rest of us is he went ahead and designed an interface he believes could enable regular watch designs to include a full bevy of smart features.

I agree that current smartwatches actually look ugly. Getting better, but these conceptual designs give me faith!

Wearable technology is not just a cool idea. It's no longer bulky and unappealing, it's sleak and it's fashionable.

This is one of the best article I found on internet. It explain that how can be a normal wrist-watch converted in a smart-watch. Which will have all the mobile computational power. This watch could have maps, internet, media and internet capabilities.

by knowing what is cybersecurity, also using ICT in awareness of right and responsibilities will be an easy way.

DIY 3D Printing: 3d printable cowling for enclosures with radiant heat source

DIY 3D Printing: 3d printable cowling for enclosures with radiant heat source | AS Level ICT | Scoop.it

Thingiverse user TimeFramed made a heater cowling for his enclosure. It is a sort of small fan driven air tunnel heat dissipation contraption :-) ...

 

It improves heat distribution and makes it even trough the chamber


From project description by TimeFramed:

I've had real trouble with thin walls splitting apart, particularly on larger prints, (a. because they're larger, b. because the take longer to print -- i.e., overnight, and my printer is in an unheated shed).
Figuring the ambient temperature drop at night was the main cause, I decided to get an enclosure heater. And an inexpensive temperature controller. After installing and testing the heater, I found that using as just a radiant heat source was heating the enclosure surfaces near the element too much, so added a low-speed AC cooling fan (on the same relay, so it comes on with the heater. That solved the too-hot-in-one-spot issue, but tended to blow warm air onto one side of the print.
So, I made a cowling that funnels the warm air to the bottom of the enclosure, and to the front and back; to more evenly distribute the air.
The "stripes" you see on my 'top half' part are pieces from the first, horribly split, part glued onto the second print (that faired much better having been printed while using what survived from the first print).
The bottom half printed even better, while using the top half, and raising the extrusion temperature by 4 degrees.


Now I keep the ambient temperature of the enclosure at a toasty 38C.
