360 CAMARAS FOR MAKING VIRTUAL REALITY

By on January 20, 2017
360 camaras

Virtual reality really changes lives:

There has been a revolution in the technology over the past few years and one of the big game changers has been the development of 360 cameras. These cameras are opening a new age of virtual reality. Allowing people to experience virtually anything. It’s actually giving people a chance to be at the places where they have never been. Like I always wanted to try scuba diving but never got a chance(sadly!). But recently I experienced diving with virtual reality and that was a really awesome experience.

360 cameras and virtual reality:

360 cameras are really taking virtual reality to the next level. I have been writing about 360 cameras in the past few days like best 360 camera and “top 3 360 cameras”. Today, I was just seeing the sunset and it was beautiful. That orange flare on the sky( as it was on fire). That sun playing hide and seek with some thin clouds. Moving down slowly as it’s gonna kiss the earth. What I felt at that moment was it’s not fair to capture such amazing view in just a flat picture. There must be something that could capture all of it that blood red flare, that sky, and that beach shining by the rays of dying sun.

That was the moment my 360 camera came into action(luckily!). I took my phone( 360fly 4K HD) out and shoot that moment. That was the moment of my day. This camera seriously made my day. In “the past” I have written a review article on this camera as it is best for me. I have also talked about “top 3 cameras” so you can choose which is best for you.

Sunset:

 Coming back to the topic that sunset was recorded in my memories as well as in my camera. So, whenever I want to enjoy it again just I have to open my phone’s gallery and there it is, right in front of me. That’s the power of virtual reality. I am getting addicted to it, it has become a part of my routine life.

 A Dream cames true:

camaras 360

Deep sea diving has always been my hobby. I just always wanted to experience that water everywhere(OMG!). Even thought of being in deep sea caused chills to me. I have been its fan since forever. But never got any chance to experience it. You know it was like some of those desires buried deep in our heart. I was wondering probably someday I would get that chance(someday!). Fortunately, that lucky day came in my life(Not really lucky, but lucky enough). Virtual reality made it real for me.

Virtual reality made that dream true for me. I experienced diving by a spherical video made by a 360 camera. It was just wow!. All that blue water and sun rays filtering from the water surface and those colorful fishes. That sight was mesmerizing. It felt like real and suddenly from that dark water, a whale came out of nowhere. I was just shocked! Thank God I wasn’t there.

The point is we all have that wishes and desires which we have buried in our hearts. We should never get hopeless there is always a chance. As long as you are breathing there is a chance of getting what you want. Never ever get hopeless. Life is out there and it’s waiting for you. You just have to live it. Take your dreams and live them. And if you have a dream like going to some beautiful place or visiting something like experiencing gliding etc. Virtual reality can really help you out.  As it has helped me.

If you are already living your dream then capture all of it in a 360 camera. As it allows you to live those moments again.

If you have such an experience of virtual reality. I would love to hear it from you. Stay safe and enjoy your life. And Good luck with your dreams.

By on January 11, 2017

Have you ever heard of vehicles run by electricity? In Germany, one transportation company boasts of its automotive which offers a better way of transportation for its customers. It does not just offers a vehicle from going to point A to point B. It changes the way we see transportation for its innovative way. What they are unique at is the mere fact that the scooters use electricity and not fuel. It lessens impact to the environment unlike other vehicles which contributes to air pollution when emit hazardous gas.

The company I am talking about is Unu Motors. It is a Netherlands-based business which is slowly making a name in the world as one of the makers of quality electric scooters for the public.

While the scooter’s features are one good thing, what they really boast of is its many benefits not only for the customers but for the community as well. First, let us tackle its advantage for the clients.

  1. Use of electricity

Like I previously said, Unu Motor’s scooters, or what they call as ‘elektrische scooter,’ are driven by electricity. To lessen the pollution and hassle to the owner to gas up every now and then.

You can shop online, set delivery date, and even air your questions, suggestions, and concerns about the product you purchased through online. This is really convenient and useful for people who do not have the time to go directly to their repair shop or physical store just to inquire something.

Now, let us list down the benefits for the community.

A Brief Guide to Stock Photography

By on January 6, 2017

So, the internet is a wonderful thing. I love writing blog posts, and I’m grateful every day for what I do and the fact that I have an attentive audience who is willing to read it. So, I want to start this post by thanking you for being so receptive and amazing. It really comma despite the amazing amount of great things here on the internet, there are some resources that always seem to be lacking. It’s so annoying, because there are so many great versions of the exact same thing, and then so many things that only have mediocre resources. It’s a trend I notice a lot, like the fact that there are so many amazing platforms for building websites and blogs, so many email browsers that are totally effective, a lot of different ways to consume media, but, somehow, there is not a single stock photography website that satisfies me or any of my other bloggers friends. I’m serious, it’s a totally real thing, no matter how hard we have looked, we have not been able to find a stock photography website or resource that has satisfied us.

This is a big deal. If you’re not familiar with stock photography or its purpose, I’ll briefly explain it to you. Stock photography databases are big resources filled with photos that have been contributed by different photographers and websites and things like that. When bloggers make a blog post, you’ll notice that we almost always attach an image.

That way, if it’s shared on social media or something like that, there is a picture that goes along with the article. In a perfect world, that picture would always be engaging and interesting, as we are completely sure, and it’s been scientifically proven actually, that humans are famous for judging a book by it’s cover, and only reading something if it’s, for whatever reason, appeals to them by how it looks first.

So comma allow me to now, allow me to bring a note of positivity to this post, so it doesn’t seem like I’m just complaining. I was just trying to give context, gosh. Anyway, recently one of my fellow bloggers pointed me in the direction of EyeEm and it was absolutely eye-opening, no pun intended. I was so happy with these images, that I actually paid to have premium membership on this site, and now I am living a life full of abundance of images, images which I love, too attached to the articles that come from my mind and my heart.

Yes, it’s a big deal, and I’m very grateful that I now have a great source first  Stock Photos

What To See And Do In Vancouver

By on November 16, 2016

So,  in case you didn’t know, I actually just took a little trip up to Vancouver. Vancouver it’s a Canadian city and it’s a real gem. Lately, Vancouver keeps being listed on collections of the best cities in the world, and now that I visited it is totally easy to see why. Vancouver has the best of the American Pacific Northwest, combined with the best things about Canada and their values. It’s like nowhere else I’ve ever been, except I guess it’s a little bit like Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco but it is also way different. It’s hard to describe. However, what’s not hard to describe is the best things that I did when I was in the city that made me the most satisfied. So, in case you’re ever planning on heading over to the Canadian West Coast Capital, here are some tips and hints that will help you enjoy your trip.

  1. Nature. Vancouver is one of those amazing cities that has all sorts of natural elements. Well, I guess I shouldn’t say “one of those cities” because quite frankly I’ve never experienced another city like Vancouver in this way. In the same day you can climb a mountain, go to the beach, and take a walk in the rain forest. If you’re there in the winter, there is amazing skiing that you can do as well, and places to go skating. This is totally unique and it is one of the most Charming things about Vancouver, because it is a super Urban City that gives you the natural wonders that most cities deprive you of.

  1. Food. The food is absolutely incredible. Especially the sushi. I think that it has a lot to do with the amount of people from the continent of Asia, but there are all sorts of amazing Cuisine options. Like I said though, the sushi is very inexpensive and very high quality, it’s about as good as I’ve ever gotten on this continent!

  1. Consider buying real estate. Okay okay hear me out, maybe this is just me, but when I really fell in love with this city like this– I feel I would gently consider investing in a piece of property. I called a Vancouver Realtor about this, and explain that I was only a potential buyer, but he was super nice about it and decided to show me some properties that were in the price range that I quoted. Mostly, he showed me Burnaby condos for sale. Burnaby is right beside Vancouver, it is also a big city, and it is connected to Vancouver with all sorts of public transit and things. It’s basically the same city, but it actually has some features that are better than the city itself. You may also want to check out Coal Harbour condos for sale which might suit your interests.

harry potter & the deathly hallows part 2

“I solemnly swear I am up to no good.” It’s hard to believe that the end has come and gone, but what an end it was. Like the crazy fan I am, I went to the midnight premiere with my sister, our best friend, and her mum. We waited in line for three and a half hours in order to get a good seat (we ended up first in line for our showing!)! It was absolutely and completely worth it. Walking out of the theatre afterward, I was unsure how I felt about the film. It was just so big and huge that it was hard to process, not to mention the fact that it was about two-thirty in the morning. Anyhow I had a hard time focusing and creating any cohesive thoughts about it, so I decided to wait until I saw it a second time before writing out how I felt.

Breaking Beautiful Blog Tour – Character This or That

By on

Today, I am welcoming Andrew of Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf, to give his answers to a list of this or that pairings!

Night or Day: Night. I’m kind of a night owl. I get my best work/thinking done long after my mom thinks I should be asleep.

 

 

 

Rain or Snow: I’m going to have to go with rain. Have you ever tried to maneuver a wheelchair in the snow?

Winter or Summer: SUMMER.  ALL THE WAY. I don’t like to be cold or wet and as I said, getting around is lots easier when the weather is nice. Besides, when it’s warm outside I have an excuse to take off my shirt and show off my amazing abs.  J

Movie or TV: TV. It’s just easier. I can stay home, have the snacks I want. Have Caitlyn curled up on the couch next to me. Pretty much anything I want to watch will eventually be on TV right?

School or Work: School. I could learn forever. Maybe I’ll be a professional student, or a professor.  Going to work all the time and dealing with real life kind of scares me.

Dogs or Cats: Dogs. Allie has this really annoying cat that gets hair everywhere and makes me sneeze. Also, it likes to wrap itself around my legs and trip me or get under the wheels of my chair. If I told Mom I know she’d get rid of it, but Allie loves the stupid thing. We’ve never had a dog so I don’t really know that they’d be better, but I’m pretty sure I’d rather have a dog.

Party or Solitude: Solitude (or one or two friends). It’s not that I don’t like being around people, it’s just that the bigger the crowd, the more likelihood that there’ll be someone there who’ll stare at me or make fun of me or is just generally be a jerk. Besides, it’s hard to get around in a big group. (Do I say that a lot, well, mobility is kind of a big issue with me.) I have a few close friends, we get each other. We have each other’s backs. That’s the way I like it.

Truth or Lie: Depends on how much trouble I’ll get in. J Naw, truth. Usually I’m a pretty straight forward guy. Telling lies is a good way to make yourself miserable.

Love & Lost or Never to Love: Love and lost. Even if things don’t work out with Caitlyn I wouldn’t ever want to miss out on that experience.

Giveaways!!

We all love giveaways, no? Personally I love not only entering giveaways, but also hosting them. Giving books away is almost as thrilling as winning books. Everyone goes about entering/hosting giveaways in different ways. Sooo…this is a post that is exploring how I feel about various ways of entering and I am also seeking your opinions.

1. How to enter

Comments: Some people have people enter for giveaways via comments on a post, on average I do not mind this system. However when it is required to make multiple comments for any extra entries I think it gets to be a little bit crazy.
Google Forms: Personally, I prefer this option above the rest. It’s just the easiest, cleanest looking choice. I do really like these, very simple both to create and to fill-out.

Review: Kiss the Morning Star

By on

Title: Kiss the Morning Star

Author: Elissa Janine Hoole

 

The summer after high-school graduation, a year after her mother’s tragic death, Anna has no plans – beyond her need to put a lot of miles between herself and the past.  With forever friend Kat, a battered copy of Kerouac’s DHARMA BUMS, and a car with a dodgy oil filter, the girls set out on an epic road trip across the USA.  Maybe somewhere along the way they’ll prove or disprove the existence of God. Maybe they’ll even get laid . . .
It’s a journey both outward and inward. Through the Badlands and encounters with predatory men and buffalo. A crazy bus ride to Mexico with a bunch of hymn-singing missionaries. Facing death, naked in the forest with an enraged grizzly bear . . . Gradually, Anna realizes that this is a voyage of discovery into her own self, her own silent pain – and into the tangled history that she and Kat share. What is love? What is sexual identity? And how do you find a way forward into a new future – a way to declare openly and without fear all that lies within you?

Guest Post – Jolene Perry – “Authors That Inspire Me”

By on
I don’t know how anyone could NOT love John Green. His writing is quirky, simple, and every few pages I want to highlight something. He has a great way of really delving into these sub-cultures – boarding school, teens with cancer, gifted kids – that just feels effortless and awesome.
Sarah Ockler is another author I just adore. She’s said that she writes slow and agonizes over phrasing and words, and it shows. The whole opening of Twenty Boy Summer just GETS me. The kiss under the willow tree in Fixing Delilah makes me swoon, and my heart races with the girl on skates in Bittersweet.
Laurie Halse Anderson. Speak and Wintergirls are two of my favorite ever reads. SO intense. And highlighted EVERYWHERE.
Courtney Summers is an author that I don’t think gets nearly enough recognition. She’s absolutely incredible in her writing style. LOVE. HER.
Jandy Nelson – who so far has one book to her name – The Sky is Everywhere, but it made me want to write poetry again (there are poems scattered throughout).
Elizabeth Scott is who I read when I need something FUN, and I hope to write that romantic tension as well as she does. The Unwritten Rule and Something, Maybe are my favs of hers.
Stephanie Perkins’ books are just outrageously fun. I LOVE them. LOVE her. And will read everything she writes.
I know that as soon as I hit send on this, I’ll cringe, knowing there are others I should have included, but thanks for the chance to be on your blog today!
~ Jolene
