Coloring a black and white picture takes a lot of time and effort, and expertise as well. Today I happen to found this Website by chance. Though it did what it says, but it is not that accurate. But sometimes it did hit the bulls eye. They use sophisticated algorithm to pull out this feat.

First open the website, there are sample photos given or you can upload your own picture



Lets compare the results

Up to this time, there is no doubt that you have played  this game at least once, hidden in your Chrome browser. Which appear whenever there is no connection in your computer/laptop or even mobiles. To play you need to press the spacebar or tap your mobile screen. It first came out in September 2014. This game gained so popularity that many gaming enthusiasts came up with an online version of the same.
T-Rex Game1,  T-Rex Game2. Sadly other browser does not support these. Even I found an android game based on the this.


This is the screenshot of my Best score

There are so many hidden surprises in google chrome, and among them, this one is very useful particularly when you are out of internet connection, for me without the internet it's like doomsday for me!


Well back to business, while online every time we visit a web page our browser auto-saves a copy of it called cached version/ stale copy, this happens in almost majority of browsers like Internet Explorer and Firefox etc.


In order to access this webpages offline in google chrome 
While inside Chrome, type chrome://flags/  in the address bar to access the experimental features page and search for the "Show Saved Copy Button" option.  and from the dropdown list select "Enable: Primary" option. Then restart the browser.

After this whenever you go offline, and Chrome browser will give you the option to load the saved copy.
 
Then there are little discrepancies, certain elements of a web page that requires active internet connection say a video/audio, or JavaScript widgets will certainly not work.
*The offline browsing option was added in Chrome v36. sSo below version may not work.

Now as the monsoon is in its full swing it is better to check the weather outside. With IsItRaining.in Powered by yahoo weather we will be able to check in which city of any country it is raining.
Use this format IsItRaining.in/<city> .The result will be pretty straight forward in YES or NO 

For Example  query about rain in New Delhi
IsItRaining.in/New-Delhi





Though there is one weakness that should be mentioned is that it is giving the result of past 30 minutes. So it may not match the real time situation.

The Bamboo Spark (Rs 9,523) bridges the divide between the analog sketchbook and the digital sketchbook by tracking your pen strokes on real paper, then transmitting the results to your device. It’s three pieces: a folio with a receiver inside, a ballpoint pen with a transmitter inside, and a pad of regular paper.

The device pairs to a mobile phone via Bluetooth, and transfers take only a few seconds per page. (Wacom’s app works on iOS and Android.) Within the mobile app, you can “replay” each line in your drawing, undoing each pen stroke and stopping at any time to export the page in that particular state. The case’s memory holds 100 pages, so you can sync in batches.
Wacom offers cloud storage for Bamboo Spark pages, and the files are easily shared to Dropbox, to Evernote, or as PDFs.  Folios come in three configurations to hold a phone, a small tablet, or an iPad Air 2.

Below I got this video from YouTube , Where full review has been given.

A robot which is learning the unwritten rules of pedestrian behavior is being developed by Stanford University. Humans have the innate ability to "read" one another. When people walk in a crowed public space such as a sidewalk, an airport terminal, or a shopping mall, they obey a large number of (unwritten) common sense rules and comply with social conventions. For instance, as they consider where to move next, they respect personal space and yield right-of-way. The ability to model these “rules” and use them to understand and predict human motion in complex real world environments is extremely valuable for the next generation of social robots.

The team, part of the Computational Vision and Geometry Lab, has already been working on computer vision algorithms that track and aim to predict pedestrian movements. But the rules are so complex, and subject to so many variations depending on the crowd, the width of the walkway, the time of day, whether there are bikes or strollers involved — well, like any machine learning task, it takes a lot of data to produce a useful result.

Jackrabbot already moves automatically and can navigate without human assistance indoors, and the team members are fine-tuning the robot’s self-navigation capabilities outdoors. The next step in their research is the implementation of “social aspects” of pedestrian navigation such as deciding rights of way on the sidewalk. This work, described in their newest conference papers, has been demonstrated in computer simulations. “We have developed a new algorithm that is able to automatically move the robot with social awareness, and we’re currently integrating that in Jackrabbot,” said Alexandre Alahi, a postdoctoral researcher in the lab. The complexity of the programming and machinery makes the Jackrabbot very expensive. However, the researchers are confident that in a few years, a model may be available for around  $500.

Those you have seen Disney robot, Wall-E (pictured). You may find a resemblance. but
Jackrabbot,  takes it name from the nimble yet shy Jackrabbit, often seen darting across the Stanford campus – and looks like a ball on wheels.

The Thor washing machine was the first electric clothes washer sold commercially in the United States. Right- Thor Electric Washing Machine Ad from The Jewish Monitor in 1921


The first mass-marketed electric washing machine was the Thor, a tumble washer produced by the Hurley Machine company in 1908.  The machine worked by tumbling clothes with wooden drum, in two directions, at eight revolutions per minute. The drum's rotation mechanisms were powered by a single Westinghouse Electric company electric motor and connected together via drive belts. Most inventively however, the Thor featured an Integrated clutch which allowed the machine switch revolution direction be held in a stationary position once power was applied.

  Working Mechanism 



1
Spin
 The drum turned at eight revolutions per minute before reversing direction to spin again. 
2
Wringer 
 The machine's chain-driven wringing mechanism could be reversed through the operation of a top-right- mounted lever.
3
Power 
 Unlike modern machines, the Thor did not have an on/off switch, instead requiring users to physically disconnect its power cord to turn it off.
4
Drum 
 The Thor's drum was made of wood, into which a galvanized tub was inserted to hold clothes. 
5
Clutch 
 A control lever on the left side of the machine was operated to engage and disengage its clutch.

Herrenknecht’s record-breaking Tunnel Boring Machine (diameter 15.20 m) in the heart of Madrid for building the M-30 motorway north tunnel.

Tunnel boring machines are designed to drill large-scale excavation holes into terrain that would otherwise be difficult or even impossible to penetrate. They are commonly used in the construction of underground tunnels and bypasses modern motorway and train tunnels are often built with them-and they are specially designed not just to cut through rock and earth, but crucially to support the tunnel in the process. Additionally, today's most advanced boring machines are engineered to remove debris as it is generated by the drilling process, with rocks and rubble transported to the rear of an assembly on conveyor belts for easy disposal.


Key to any tunnel-boring machine though is its colossal cutterhead, a cylindrical wall of disc cutters and drills that-in partnership with extreme pressure, which is generated by the bore's thrust cylinders-literally crush any material that sits in its path. The largest of these cutterheads currently in operation isa 15.2-meter (49.8-foot) across Herrenknecht-brand EPB Shield, a record-breaking piece of machinery that was used to carve out chunks of earth in the construction of Madrid's M-30 motorway north tunnel. The total assembly is huge and it weighs hundreds of tons.


1
Roof bolting unit
This part can rotate around the machine's axisand drill holes into therockfor supporting metalbolts. 

2
Walking device
The rear of the bore and the back-up systems rest on the feet of the walking device. They are lifted as tunneling progresses and the back-up system follows.

3
Thrust cylinders
These press the rotating cutterhead against the tunnel face.

4
Buckets
The system's buckets transport the excavated rubble behind the cutterhead onto a conveyor belt system.

5
Disc cutters
These are mounted in the cutterhead and roll in concentric circles over the tunnel face. The contact pressure crushes the rock.

6
Cutterhead
All the excavation tools are mounted in the cutterhead, which also supports the tunnel face.

It was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) between 1998 and 2008 in collaboration with over 10,000 scientists and engineers from over 100 countries, as well as hundreds of universities and laboratories. It lies in a tunnel 27 kilometres (17 mi) in circumference, as deep as 175 metres (574 ft) beneath the France–Switzerland border near Geneva, Switzerland.

CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest research instrument ever built and one of the most sophisticated pieces of machinery in the history of science. Accelerating protons and ions to almost the speed of light around a 27-kilometer (16.8-mile) ring, it smashes these particles together to probe the structure of our universe. As well as the accelerator itself, each of the LHC's four main particle detectors is a feat of engineering. The largest ATLAS (detailed below) weighs 7,000 tons, packing in six specialized subdetectors fine-tuned to track the showers of minuscule particles produced by proton collisions at its heart.  
1
Magnet system Gigantic coils produce a magnetic field inside the detector, bending the paths of particles.

2
Muon spectrometer only travel to the outer reaches of ATLAS, where the spectrometer tracks their paths

3
Calorimeters The electromagnetic and hadronic calorimeters gather further data on the energy of particles and how far they travel

 The huge amount of data generated by LHC's detectors is then processed by the Grid a global network of over 200,000 computers. After three years' worth of particle collisions, CERN's physicists finally confirmed the existence of the famous Higgs boson, and the LHC shut down in early-2013 for a well-earned break. But it's not over yet, engineers are giving the atom smasher an upgrade, allowing it to almost double the energy of its collisions when it starts up again in 2015. Higher- energy collisions will boost the LHC's chances of pinning down some of the rarest particles in existence. For example, physicists hope to spot dark matter, the inscrutable substance they believe makes up a quarter of our universe's mass.

1
Beam pipe The LHC accelerates protons, which speed around in opposite before inside particle detectors.

2
Interaction point one collision in a billion produces a Higgs which rapidly into lighter particles that radiate outwards

3
Inner detector Highly sensitive devices made of silicon map the trajectories of charged particles.

The rebooted LHC will also go on the prowl for supersymmetric particles, whose existence would validate supersymmetry, the leading theory for what happens beyond the realms of our current understanding of physics. According to this model, each particle we know is paired up with an as yet undiscovered "superpartner. None of these mysterious particles showed their faces during the LHC's first run, but the physics community will be hot on their heels when the search resumes in 2015.
