RAM memory
In this post I'm going to explain a way of waste the RAM memory instaled in the computer, which affects to a lot of users.
Since some years ago, are being sold computers with 4 or more GB of RAM, but if we use an operating system of 32 bits, it will indicate us that we are using a little less of those 4 GB. Why occurs this? Show more of "RAM memory: Why if I have 4GB or more the OS detect less?"

Robot con Kinect
In one of the posts where I explained the how Kinect works, I said that wouldn't be strange that it will be use to build robots. Now are emerging the first robotic machines that someday will rebel and will begin to kill humans. Here I talk about some of them. Don't stop reading the rest of "Robots, Kinect and the SLAM problem"

Kinect
Microsoft wants that we can play with the Xbox 360 moving us in front of the screen. For that have spend hundreds of millions of dollars in develop a device to realize the recognition and the tracking, not only of a complete person but several ones, including also 3D information, its name is Kinect. In this post you will discover how works the hardware and the artificial intelligence algorithms that uses. Deep in "Kinect: How works its 3D body tracking"

Kinect
The new Xbox 360 peripheral has a multiarray microphone that is capable of separate the voices that there are in front of the device from the others sounds of the enviroment to chat and use voice commands. Here you will learn how is done this difficult task. Fill your mind with "Kinect: How works its multiarray microphone "

Processor
In this post I'm going to do predictions about how will be the hardware of the future, but not guiding me neither by the movement of the stars nor the Tarot cards, instead I'm going to base my predictions in the market evolution and some trends.
Since the years 40, the computers are being build following the John von Neumann architecture, with one processor, a memory and a controller of input/output. This will change sometime? I think so. Read more of "Four predictions about the hardware of the future"

Ostentatious utensil of virtual reality
The virtual reality is the creation of 3D interactive worlds by computer, with the intention of immerse the user in another reality. To this, normally, is used goggles that has an screen for each eye, creating the sensation of be in a 3D world around us everywhere. See here how has evolved this discipline.

Code and a processor
In this post I'm going to explain something quite basic, but a lot of people unknown or simply don't understand well.
I'm going to clarify why the algorithms (sequence of steps that has to realizy a computer to complete a determinate task), are execute more faster in hardware than in software. Read the rest of "Any algorithm in hardware is faster than in software"

Laptop battery with flames
The Lithium-Ion of the batteries of the laptops, lost duration with the use, it can pass from a duration of several hour to a few minutes in a couple of years. In this post I'm going to explain some tricks to avoid it. Read the rest of "Prolongs the life of the battery of your laptop"
