Imagine that you can travel the Amazon without leaving your home. Soon, it will be possible with Google Street View. Soon you will be able to navigate the Amazon and the Black River from your home and discover the biodiversity of the planet’s most remote areas.
A team of Street View in Brazil and the members of Google Earth Outreach are taking images of the rivers, forests and the tribes living in that area to upload to Street View. The project will also help the Foundation for a Sustainable Amazon (FAS), a local nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the environment. The FAS will be responsible for taking pictures and posting them on Street View.
Street View Trike will be used to traverse the narrow dirt roads that make up the peoples of the Amazon and spend as close as possible to the areas where civilization meets the forest. Another way to capture images of the river will be through a boat. The tripod is used in this case to show how people live in places like a community center or school in the middle of the Amazon.
In this first phase of the project, teams of Google and FAS to take pictures of an area covering 50 km from the Black River and extending from Tumbira, near Manaus, to the area of Terra Preta. This project will show the riches of the Amazon in a way never seen before, is also a unique opportunity for travelers, scholars of the environment and generally for all those who feel interest in one of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet.

LG unveiled new HX906TX 9.1 cinema sound system — a ten-speaker package claiming to deliver “truly 360-degree sound.” It’s designed to make you feel like you’re at the center of the audio (even if you’re really at the far end of the room) — the way you might hear in a concert hall or really large bathroom with great acoustics. LG says it uses a DSP algorithm to pump audio vertically and horizontally using 3D reflectors, extending sound upwards and filling in the gaps. You’ll also get added features like Blu-ray playback, WiFi Direct and Smart TV connectivity to smartphones and tablets using an app, although there’s no word yet on pricing or availability.

Its fun to be young,,J We all have some hobbies for passing our free time. Some people like fishing, some like swimming, some love their pets some like gardening. I also have a hobby. Its little different from above mentioned. I love gadgets, I love to pass my leasure time with them. One of them is my favourite RC helicopter. I want to share my hobby with you. In this post I am giving some images of RC helicopters and a video. I also give general information about using this “Toy”. I hope you like it, its specially for children and teenagers.
Helicopters are different from other transportation modes. Pilot have full access to 3 dimentional space so it is difficult to control. Its for RC and also for real big one. It moves forward, backward, left, right, up and down. In RC helicopter you are not sitting in the toy so its difficult to move in right direction.
RC helicopter have 5 components. Main rotor, tail, assembly plate, control device, aeros. Main rotor is above the body, it produces lifting force which takes the helicopter up in the air. Tail rotor stops the spinning of the gadget. It also controls the direction and rotation of helicopter. Its assembly plate fits on main rotor , it controls the up and down movements of helicopter. Remote is used for the control of helicopter. It contains different buttons to fly it up and down. To take it forward or backward, left or right.The main component is that remote. RC stands for “remote control” it is wireless communication between man and gadget.
There are so many programming languages in the computer world from based on DOS model to GUI version. To master a programming language we have to understand an algorithm, the logic and the language of the program. Nowadays, some programmer still using ad DOS model to coding, but a most modern programmer use a GUI model.
There is no need to master all programming languages; all we need is to master the algorithm and the logic. If we can master one programming language very well, there will be no difficulty to coding in other languages because all languages have the same concept.
If we are talking about programming languages in the past, there was a Pascal language, C language and even an assembly language (machine language). The most difficult language is Assembly language because it is not a human language which is based on English language, it’s totally machine language. Pascal and C languages are human languages; it is already based on English but still has a DOS interface.
Nowadays, there are many programming languages which are GUI version. You can see colors, shapes even we can design it with this language wherever we like. The language is simpler, closer to human language such as Visual Basic, Visual C++, Java and many more. But all of them still based on algorithm and logical thinking. So, which programming language do you choose?
