Defining 3-D Computer Graphics
3- D computer graphics is a field in computer dealing with displaying 3 dimension objects in a two dimension space for example on a screen. They utilize a three- dimension representation in geometry which is typically stored in in digital computer read only.
Real life objects are entered into the computer and converted to 3-D graphics using special software. Almost the same algorithms like that of 2-D are used to make the 3-D graphics except some few added features.

There is no denying that many parts of the world are experiencing heat waves and humidity levels never seen before. In fact, the situation is bound to get worse; well, at least according to the recent reports which suggest that we are about to experience even more extreme heat and high humidity. Portable air conditioners are quite helpful in maintaining low room temperatures, even when you have less space in your homes.
Given this, I have compiled a list of 4 portable air conditioners which would work perfectly to keep the temperatures and humidity levels in check; especially if you stay on campus/dormitory room.

Great news for gamers!
The quickly emerging 3D world of virtual reality will soon be receiving one of the most anticipated virtual reality goggles, the Oculus Rift . I hope this article will serve as an overview of what to expect from the latest virtual reality technology on the horizon.
Virtual reality goggles work by mimicking the function of the eyes on perception. The human brain interprets two separate images introduced by the optic nerves connected to each eye. Because eyes are in two slightly different positions on the face, humans see two slightly different images that the brain processes into one 3D image. VR goggles have two tiny screens (one for each eye) located in the headset. Each screen displays a similar, minimally altered image and in return, the mind is able to perceive a 3D virtual world.
Sensors located in the headset are able to track movement, so that when the player turns their head, the game will transmit a visual corresponding to the direction they are trying to look in. In this way, the player will have the sense of being physically in the game. Read More →
McDonald’s was founded in 1955 in Des Plaines, Illinois and while it did serve its customers some delicious hamburgers at that time, it wasn’t until 1977 that they began their treat for kids: the Happy Meal! Today’s happy meals usually include a child-sized cheeseburger, fries, and a fun but cheaply-made toy.
McDonald’s is about to up their game when it comes to their Happy Meal toys though. Their Virtual Reality headset known as “Happy Goggles” will debut in fourteen Swedish establishments only for now, beginning on March 5th. The release date coincides with the celebration of McDonald’s 30th anniversary in Sweden and the week- long Swedish holiday of Sportlov, a time when families are encouraged to get outside and participate in winter sports. This brand new gadget is beyond anything else McDonald’s has ever done. Read More →
Drones or quadcopters are exciting gadgets. They have different uses and therefore anyone who intends on purchasing one needs to be well informed on the different types of drones available on the market. As technology changes, it has brought different uses for drones. As a beginner you may purchase a drone to play with as a fun hobby, however, if the drone is used for business purposes (commercial) then you do need to register the drone.
Some of its uses include:

While an expensive stereo system will give you quality sound, not many students can afford the high price tags.
After all, setting up a dorm requires spending hundreds on shelving, a laptop, bedding, new clothes and maybe even a fancy new Casper mattress – depending on the hall.

The consumer drone industry has come so far in such a short amount of time.
As governments try to grapple with the fast growing number of non-military UAVs, the competition between consumer drone manufacturers is intensifying. Venture capital is pouring into new drone startups by the billions.
As different brands and models try their best to outdo each other, one particular model has emerged as an industry leader: the DJI Phantom 3 Professional.
The Phantom 3 Professional (more detailed review + photos here) is in many ways a statement on where the future of drones is going.

The Rise of Direct-to-Consumer DNA Tests
While new scientific discoveries are made all the time, not many of them manage to find their way into the consumer market as quickly as DNA testing has.
Since scientists finished mapping the human genome and identifying specific genetic markers for heritable traits, a whole industry has exploded onto the scene to sell the technology directly to consumers.
In this article, I explain some of the reasons why this has been possible and some of the consumer applications of DNA testing.
Traditionally, one had to go to a medical professional in a hospital or clinic to get a DNA test done. In direct to consumer (DTC) DNA testing however, a person can completely bypass a medical professional and access DNA testing directly.
The biggest factor behind the rise of this phenomenon has been the rapid advancement of analytics technology in genetics. Today, a DNA test can reveal far more than it did a few years ago.
For example, DNA testing can show the genetic predisposition of an individual towards certain health conditions such as cancer. By taking a genetic test, I can also tell if I am at a higher risk of getting a heart attack because of my genes. Read More →
