Wireless Handheld Multimedia Computers

The Average home user or a majority of mankind have trouble even when operating a TV remote control. Things are not as simple as a Water Tap or a Toggle Switch. An Easy to use Handheld is more important than any technology or features that may be available for that. Ergonomics, Utility or Application, Quality and Cost are the basic requirements of the consumer.

Wireless Handheld Multimedia Computers

A Handheld gadget for the masses, needs to be a Entertainer and Communicator. It has to be wireless and should at least get into a Coat Inner pocket or Small Bag. It is a Duarble Consumer Electronics Product, comparable to the first Popular Tape Recorders from Philips or Grundig.

Wireless Gigabit Alliance - WiGig 60 GHz

Wifi and WiMax are the things that are being talked-blogged about and being tried. I just got some idea about these technologies and have my feedback or understanding.

If Somebody asked me to set up a low cost wifi connectivity in a small housing complex, I would just strap a wireless router on the pole on every street corner, the poles or junctions being the ones used for existing cable broadband. Then depending on subscriptions and demand, improve the capacity of the network within the budget of the colony.

The handheld can have simultaneous connection to two or three routers and as the person moves, drop a weak path and take up a new router which is strong. This is just my hunch.

The Handheld could be used for three types of wireless connections.

Full Multimedia Duplex - Like Video Telephone, WebApps - 100 units money charge per hour.

Semi Multimedia Duplex - Like Interactive Quiz, Games - Up is Text, Down is Video - 50 Units /hr.

Multimedia Broadcast - Digital Radio Podcast, TV Show Podcast, Movie Podcast - 15 Units/hr.

The TV and Radio Shows on subscribed podcasts can be downloaded and stored when it is transmitted live; but seen any time, any number of times, but transmitted only once. This is a wireless Transmission with an advance program xml feed info. It is just like Regular TV. This is to avoid bandwidth wastage on multiple downloads of same show by the people in one block. Even software updates and games can be brodcast and stored in background.

The usage of Internet and phone remains duplex and will take more resources. The handheld usage for entertainment may be very high. Duplex for that will cause excess costly load. Normal usage of Internet for browsing, mail and webapps may become difficult as more entertainment load builds. Entertainment on Handheld is best as a one time brodcast with a advance feed.

Conclusion - Wireless Handhelds connectivity must have separate interfaces for Web and Media. The Web is the same as Lan Wifi but Movies and Games can be connected by a Broadcast Show. And seen on Handheld by wireless Programmable Live Reception with storage.

Transparent Epoxy Coins with RFID

This is an old post around 2005, in those days this post became popular and created some ripples. I removed that blog due to Idea Squirrels who steal other people ideas and do not give credit. Now i am archiving it after curating. RFID like QR Code is a Data Input Element.

Higher value coins can be made this way. Notes get torn and carry infection, cannot be washed. Difficult to count even with machines.

ER Coins (Epoxy Coins with RFID) can be easily counted. From Piggy banks to conveyors. integrating counting is child's play.

Transparent Epoxy Coins with RFID

Even a HandHeld device app can count how much your pocket is worth right now. HandHelds are themselves becoming wallets, that is another story. Coins are at the reach of every one.

These can be washed, verified, counted and epoxy can be very long lasting. A unique ID or Series of every coin-bag is possible. This can help tracking for high value coins.

Even gold linked coins are possible, these change value based on the worth of gold.

A Grade of Epoxy can be made so that it is least harmful for the Environment, yet retains its durability and Transparency.

Transparency is required for a Tiny Color Coded Bar, which is Insert Moulded into the coin. This enables quick visual identification of coin value.
