The computing industry is trying to make HTML5 THE standard, specially for the mobile world. And why not? The dream under HTML5 is write once deploy everywhere, a dream started by Sun with Java, we all know where that stands.
Native vs. Web
There has been a long debate on weather to take the native approach or the web one (HTML). To summarize, native code uses the set of instructions and tools meant to an specific platform, where as HTML, uses only text in HTML code. The main difference between the two is performance and ease of development. Depending on who you ask, they will tell you this...
When the initial video of Google Glass appeared online, many people automatically confused it with an AR device, which is, overlaying information on top of a live feed camera view. However, the first edition of Glass Explorers did not support any type of AR. Glass was “just" an tiny screen mounted over a eye glasses enclosure.
Late last year, Google introduced Immersion menus on the platform. These menus allow the simultaneous use of the camera and screen of Glass. Thus immersion menus effectively introduce the possibility of Glass to be used as an AR device.
Organized by Wavefront, last week was celebrated the Wavefront Wireless Summits. This is the BIG telco conference here in Canada, which takes place in Vancouver. Mollejuo was fortunate enough to have been invited to a B2B meeting with Blackberry -yes they’re still alive and kicking-. From Blackberry’s part, they were very interested on what we have to say and how we are doing it (i.e. our City Icons products).
It was a great opportunity to assist to this event and an even greater way to get to know this beautiful city located on the Canadian pacific. For sure it will lead to some exiting...
We in Mollejuo embrace the cutting edge, that’s one of the reasons we have been deploying AR worldwide. Bitcoin is the first crypto currency (a fancy way to call digital money) being taken seriously by humanity. As such, we are welcoming them! Now, when you are paying to add a site to our AR geolocation platform, your business can also pay with Bitcoins.
You don’t know what bitcoin is?
Well, long history short, it's a commodity/currency combination, with really no formal definition. It doesn’t matter, what matters is that it works and it can be used for trade and payments around the world....
Many of us have lived the experience: We are perfectly “connected” to the WiFi network, however we can’t navigate or seem to do anything, what’s going on? Don’t even try an Skype call!
The problem is the ubiquitousness of WiFi. Simply, there’re so many WiFi networks around in some areas that it becomes impossible for the devices to talk to selected/chosen WiFi router.
You see, WiFi only can work on the 2.4 and 5 GHz. Within those frequencies, channels were devised, in order to allow the coexistence of several WiFi networks close to each other. However, we have come to a time where...
As the end of the year is approaching, we’ve decided to compile some stats. Without any further a do, here are the top 10 cities with geolocated AR users:
Rio de Janeiro
The fact that those cities have the most users doesn’t mean they’re the most explored on the AR world. For these category, the results are:
Rio de Janeiro
The data was extracted from...
Last week-end we had the opportunity to have a round table discussion with the Minister of Employment and Social Development and Minister for Multiculturalism of Canada, the Honourable Jason Kenney. The meeting was organized by Winston Chan and CYBF (Canadian Youth business Foundation).
Lately on the western countries (Europe -except Germany- & North America) a curios phenomenon has been taking place: unemployment is relatively high (including youth), on the contrary, there are many jobs offers being left open (I.e not attended). So, what’g going on?
With that, Mr. Kenney...
Last week we were present on the Telecoms Tech World in London. It was a great conference! It had an awesome line-up of speakers and good participants all-over. In our case we had a great chance to let our work be known, do some serious networking and last but not least, a good opportunity to get to know -the incredibly great city of- London. And of course, we promoted London Icons, to facilitate the visit to this amazing city.
We hope to have an opportunity to visit this city again, soon. :-)
Next week in London UK, on Nov 26th to 27th, Telecoms Tech World will happen. Mollejuo will be there presenting our apps and technology. Naturally we are very exited to visit this great and unique city, which is one of the first we deployed for the City Icons series via the London Icons App.
As the name implies, Telecoms Tech world is a conference themed around, well, the telecom world, an industry being challenged by the big changes brought by the nascent apps industry. Ironically, the thing -apps- that has helped the most to increase traffic on the operators (which is a good), is also the thing...
Two days ago a little part of the internet went wild because a woman named Cecilia Abadie had a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving. That’s the short history of it, you can check it out below.
The devil is on the details
Well, the thing is that she was ticketed for two infractions:
Going over the speed limit, thus the police stoping her.
Wearing Google Glass
For the reason number two, below is the law that covers (frames) it:
27602. (a) A person shall not drive a motor vehicle if a television receiver, a video monitor, or a television or video screen, or any other...
