After having read about the location tracker information that the iPhone stores on backup records. Using the MAC application decided to test it. You would be surprised to the extent of information it can visually display on the map. Here is a snapshot of Airtel Cell coverage in Bangalore. Maybe others in the area can publish such information to create a OpenCellID information database that can be used to provide FOSS services in the city.
here is the link to the application

I have been fascinated with concept renderings, especially for user interface related products. Due to lack of 3D tool skills like Alias or 3D MAX. I made best possible use of Omnigraffle and Apple Keynote to render some of the product concepts. Most of the UI has been constructed using Keynote drawing elements and Omnigraffle vector elements and modified stencil objects. If you like the source for this kindly email me. I would be happy to share it.
Energy Meters have been a rage these days with Micro-Controller device manufacturers especially the ARM M4 series and SH processors. The concept is a low cost design based on Zigbee or DECT basestation with Wifi to fetch information from other connected elements like PowerMeter, WaterMeter, Heating or Natural GAS and utility machines.
Schedule Wizard : We have had experiences that meeting rooms despite being booked on share-point or Outlook or any other web-based tools would be unavailable just because somebody occupied despite a reservation. It would be kinda of cool if meeting rooms are access controlled like conference calls, only the moderator can open the call. Added to this we usually don’t have an idea on the meeting in progress or the duration if you just walk by the room. In the age of tablets this should be a problem that could be easily solved. Communication and display is no issue. But rather its about industrial design, power and usability.I took a shot at a mockup for such a display device.
