If you had seen Star Trek series the New Generation version with captain Picard probably you remember the folding piano, the one that had played the Commander Daren in episode Lessons (ep 19 season 6 – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0708741/?ref_=ttep_ep19). If you need a hint to remember check next video.
How I did said in the title that piano is not a SCI-FI fantasy anymore. Is available in real world for you to buy. One thing is that it do not sound as good as the one from the movie.
The piano is good enough for someone who start learning to play for kids and probably for practice when a real piano or a sound synthesizer is not available. The folding piano keyboard from above video can be found at a price of 50 US dollars here.

Remember the Flappy Bird game and the “Flappy” clones that appeared after the game was removed? Well all clones was exactly the same, they have the Flappy keyword in the title and except the textures the game work the same way as the original.
Looking for the old looking game (or 8-bit games) I did stumbled on Jetpack Panic witch is as hard as the original Flappy Bird but more fun and with some changes maybe better.
Jetpack is about a character with have a jetpack and he have to fly up, however the path is full of obstacles that you have to pass using taps on the left and the right if your character.

Back 7 years ago when I was just starting on my first job I had the chance to work as a software developer for a company witch build the hardware and software for a product witch monitor a fleet of trucks with the help of GPS and the GSM networks. At that time the device needed for that was the size of a laptop, need a truck service to be installed and I can tell you that was not cheap.
This morning I had stumbled on an Android app named CarLock witch with a help of a small device do almost the same as what the system I was talking above did.
It track the position of a car, and you can see it in real time on a map from your phone or tablet, you can get notification if the car is moved from the location where you left it and you are notified if the system lost GPS or GSM signal or the device is removed from the car (it is a strong chance that someone steals your car and try to remove any traces).

This device can be purchased from the CarLock home site carlock.co for the price of 99 Euro and you get bonus one month subscription in that money. Continue reading
