How Does Technology for Glassless Mirrors Work?

March 5, 2013 |

When you think about a mirror what do you reckon is the most important element in it? Without any glass it won’t work at all, will it? Well, having a mirror without any glass sounds a lot like having a waterless shower or a foodless fridge but strangely enough there are actually a couple of different types of glassless mirrors around these days.

Apparently they are popular in dance studios but since I haven’t seen inside one of them since Fame sadly ended I will have to take someone’s word for it. Popular places of use also include gyms and schools. They are shatterproof of course and they also have a number of other benefits which are worth investigating.

It certainly looks as though taking the glass out of bathroom mirrors is one way of making sure that we get a fine mirror without having to worry about breaking it, and as I have smashed, … Read More

Learning Symbol Rate

September 28, 2012 |

Symbol rate is a mirror to the rates of state changing in the communication circuit. There are different ways to understand symbol rate. Symbol rates are basically used in digital communication (also known as baud or modulation rate). It defines the number of symbol changes (waveform changes or signalling events) which is referred as transmission medium per second using a digitally modulated signal or a line code. Symbol Rate can be better understood as, if a circuit is enabled to carry two tones per second, then the circuit is meant to have symbol rate as two. After getting into these technical terms one needs to understand the modulations. Circuits exercise different modulations techniques to carry multiple bits per symbol. If the circuit is confined to two variance tones then, the first tone can represent a 0 and the second tone can represent a 1. In this circuit, the symbol rate is the same as the bit rate.

The Race for Communication: Man and Machine

September 5, 2012 |

During the oil boom of the 1970’s, West Texas oil production companies and gas processors depended on telecommunications equipment to monitor remote pump stations. If a unit lost power in the wee hours of the morning, an auto dialer called an operator at a 24-hour answering service. The operator then called someone to trek out to the field and correct the problem. As technology improved and live operators were replaced by automated systems with alarming speed, telephone lines were used to page repair technicians and send digital notes to doctors after hours. With the stunning speed of technology and innovative new products today, people are scarcely needed to facilitate machine-to-machine conversation or repairs—however, humans may rely more on machines to speak to other humans.

With the upcoming election in November, U.S. residents are probably seeing an uptake in the number of prerecorded voice mail messages they receive from political survey takers and pollsters. Hurricane season … Read More

People lately have little or no belief in any product but mostly simply new and unproven products

January 23, 2012 |

It is difficult in this day and age to keep up with new technology and to ensure that you are as up to date as you could be, with regard to the various technological advances that are being made on an almost weekly basis. Previously, you could at least rely on a brand name or ‘type’ during conversations that would enable you to work out what exactly was being discussed. These days, though, people are exhibiting a lesser belief in well-known products and brands and are turning to unproven companies, making it even more difficult to remain up to date.

It used to be that there were a small number of big name technological suppliers and providers and you could easily check and make comparisons whenever you planned on making a purchase. Internet providers, mobile providers, cable companies and satellite packages, as well as various technology suppliers, would offer you an easy checklist that showed … Read More
