I recall in my days in the world of architecture as an intern where I’d go to job sites to document existing features, take measurements, and make changes to exiting construction documents on paper and digitally in AutoCAD — or even searching and finding the original construction documents in the school district archives because the school claimed to have lost them; I’m looking at you Alamo Heights ISD. Anyway, more times than not you’d be on a project site and find a problem that needed immediate attention. The problem is that once the project heads to the Construction Administration phase is NOT the best time for big design changes, new field conditions, client changes, errors, etc., etc…. Thankfully, Morpholio has updated their TracePro iPhone app, allowing users to alter job sites by simply “importing key components of the design process into the Construction Administration phase.” Continue reading “The “Trace” App by Morpholio Lets You Update Construction Design Changes On The Fly!”
Some of my fondest childhood memories involve booting up the Apple computers at my elementary school (and I’m talking early-1990s) to play Number Munchers, Oregon Trail, the Carmen SanDiego games, or make some pixel art in MacPaint. However, back in those days, Apple wasn’t into mobile devices yet (much like many other tech companies at the time), but artist Pierre Cerveau wanted to take a crack at the theory of what Apple’s very first smartphone might have looked like if it were made in the 1980s.

The crew over at Engadget recently got an hands-on experience with Kwikset and UniKey’s updated home entry systems. Here’s how it works: with the main lock mechanism housing a Bluetooth daughter card, a couple of Bluetooth antennas and a smartphone app, you can open this lock just by touching the outside of the lock housing with your finger.

If you keep track of tech or just happen upon a projector at your local store or newspaper ad, you’ll notice how expensive they can be. If you’re thinking about creating your own projector for, of all things, your smartphone on the cheap, then Instructables user “iamaledgend” has a little project for you to take a peek at. You’ll need the following items: a magnifying … Continue reading The $1 Smartphone Projector
Ringtones are an excellent thing, huh? I mean, instead of listening to the grating sound of the basic ringing sound of a phone for incoming calls, you can be notified of an incoming call by the grating sound of any song recorded by Souja Boy (**crickets**, **crickets**). Anyway, while there are many services available that allow you to download ringtones to your phone for a … Continue reading Turn A Song Into a Free Ringtone for iPhone or Android
Cue the sound effect: BRUNNNNNHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
Anyways, here we have a TV, an iPad, and an iPhone, all of them stacked up “on top of” each other—you know, kind of like in the dreams in “Inception.” This pic brings back memories when nearly everyone I came across who saw the movie, as we all attempted to make sense of the whole thing. As far as I’m concerned, this combo of devices illustrates an almost perfect example of Inception. Continue reading “Ladies & Gentlemen, The "Inception" Meme!”
