Remember Chandamama stories....Now you can access them online

I have been a fan of Chandamama stories and I had written an earlier post on Chandamama going online.

Chandamama now is available online. You can read stories of Chandamama dating back to June, 1955 all the way upto the last issue. Not just that, you can select the language in which to read the story in. Man, the good old days are back here. Click here for the archives. Thanks to technology, Chandamama can be savored by our children and theirs too...

Thanks to Vasuki who refreshed my memory of this link via a Facebook post.

Leap Motion - Bringing to Life the scene from Minority Report

I came across an amazing next generation computing interface company named Leap Motion. The company has invented a small rectangular piece of computing hardware that generates an invisible fabric of waves in front of a screen. You could then interact with this fabric and your inputs are translated into action on the screen of the computer.

You could zoom, rotate, pinch, cut, slash, play, input commands - all at the gesture of your fingers.

Have a look here

Imagine the possibilities when this launches. Steering wheels on cars can be done away with, students can interact with the blackboard right from their seats in the class room, tablets can get empowered enough to start replacing laptops....
