How close are we to affordable 3D printers at home?


Since they first came to the public eye 3D printers have really caught people’s imagination.  The thought of being able to produce a 3D item instead of the usual 2D fare is intriguing.  And we are not as far away from being able to afford a 3D printer at home as you might think.

How the M3D Micro Printer is Kickstarting in 3D

One of the best examples of affordability in the area of 3D printing is this tiny but incredible piece of kit.  It burst onto the scene in May 2014 when it surpassed expectations by achieving Kickstarter funding of $3,401,361 against a target of $50,000.  The 11,855 backers will benefit from decreased purchase costs of $199 for early backers and $299 for other backers against the full purchase price of $349.

M3D are now taking advance order for the product on their website with an estimated delivery date of 2015.

A Great Thing in a Small Package

This device may be small but that does not make it any less dynamic; a cube shape, its sides are each only 7” in length.  It produces good quality 3D printing results via a very simple to use plug and play system.  One thing that it’s important to know is that it can only reproduce items up to 4.6”, so if you’re looking to print a playmate for your dog you are going to be out of luck.  The fact remains that it is an affordable way of experiencing the creative curiosity that is 3D printing.

Make what you want!

Remember Kits are Just the Plastic Parts

You can buy 3D printer kits from suppliers such as Master Geeks; the RepRap Mini Kossell retails for approximately $69.95.  These kits only include the plastic pieces that you need to construct the printer itself, you still have to incur the cost of associated hardware and electronics.

The Best Affordable Current 3D Printing Devices on the Market

One of the best fully working 3D printers for affordability that is currently available is the XYZprinting Da Vinci 1.0 3D Printer which retails for approximately $530; this is just about an affordable option for home use.  The diminutive printer, it has 7.3” sides, can be used straight out of the box and is easy to use whether you have any experience printing in 3D or not.  Even people who are technologically challenged can just plug it in and produce some effective 3D models straight away.

So the answer as to how close we are to being able to afford to print in 3D at home is that we are already there to an extent.  The technology that once seemed the stuff of science fiction movies is at our finger tips.  It’s still not a particularly cheap way to spend your time; a few hundred dollars is affordable but perhaps not comfortably so for a lot of people.  As with any advances in technology, the more examples that come onto the market, the cheaper the products will become.  Look at how much a flat screen TV used to cost and then consider whether it may be worth waiting a while to invest in your first 3D printer.

Technology Innovation In Automotive


Since its invention centuries ago, the internal combustion engine has transformed the transportation of man and goods. The car has become not only a necessary part of life, but also a status symbol and show of wealth. Additionally the car has spawned a host of human pastimes and entertainment, the most famous of which is auto racing. Indeed, car racing has been the crucible in which most technological advancements in cars have been conceived.

The pace of technological leaps in the modern world increase exponentially each day and this is more so in the automobile industry. All these changes revolve around the following:

Passenger safety and comfort 

The car has been a leading cause of death and injury worldwide for a variety of reasons. Almost all jurisdictions now have strict technical requirements to improve passenger safety. This area has seen lot of advancement which include:

· Use of safety harnesses and inflatable airbags. These have evolved from simple belts to computer aided pre tension systems that lock the passenger into place just before a collision. Airbags lessen injuries to the driver’s body from car components during impact.

  • Collision and proximity warning systems: These use laser technology to judge distances and speed, warning the driver of an imminent collision. They also automatically start braking and prepare the passenger for a collision by adjusting the seat position.
  • Differential braking and wheel propulsion to maximize power to particular wheels in slippery conditions, increasing off-road utility of the vehicle.
  • Advanced braking systems such as ceramic brakes and anti-locking braking systems that prevent the wheels from locking and skidding. These also improve braking distances for safety.
  • Chassis crumple-up zones to reduce impact transfer to the cabin during collisions.
  • Driving aids such as satellite navigation, GPS and chassis cameras to aid parking etc.

Fuel economy and performance

The days of cheap fuel are gone and increasing concerns about pollution and global warming have necessitated the reduction of car emissions by various advancements. These include:

  • Electronic fuel injection which controls fuel flow into the engine, making combustion more efficient.
  • Advancements in engine respiration technology such as superchargers and turbo injection pumps. These increase power with less fuel consumption.
  • Improvements in aerodynamic design to reduce drag and make the car more fuel efficient.
  • Hybrid and electronically powered cars which use a charged battery alone or in concert with a combustion engine, increasing fuel economy.

Computer controlled car functionality 

The computer is taking over most functions in the car including fully driving the car in some models. These are similar to auto piloting systems in planes. Others include:

  • Cruise control
  • Auto dimming lights that switch on and off using light detection sensors.
  • Automatic wipers that sense rain.
  • Warning systems that detect a driver sleeping and vibrate the steering wheel, jarring the driver awake.
  • Auto turning headlights for better visibility around corners.

Driving today has become more fun and enjoyable, with better models that are more affordable coming to market. Public transportation need not be the only way to enjoy this amazing technology. Learn how to drive and book practical driving test to acquire your licence.

Advanced Webranking

How Advanced Web Ranking Helps Me to Provide Value to My Clients


The Following Content is a Guest Post By Flo

As an SEO specialist, I am always looking for ways to help me stay a step ahead of my competition. When I saw what Advanced Web Ranking had to offer in terms of features, I decided to give it a shot. To be honest, I was a little surprised to see the software’s complexity when I first run it. I presume that this aspect can put some people off – but not me! Within an hour I had put together a campaign and started to get a good overview of how the software works. Each section of the software had its own purpose and I ended up using most of them since I knew my clients would appreciate things like social media and link statics.

I found that the ranking reports were the most useful since my clients were always concerned about how their websites were looking on the SERPs. I feel that as SEOs we should concentrate less and less on rankings and more on the end game – conversions.

Learn! :- How and Why To have a social impact on your Users!

The ranking module comes with a built-in scheduler that lets you update website rankings whenever you want. This is quite handy as you can schedule an update on a multitude of scheduling patterns. With this, I could offer my clients even a daily update (if they wished so) and not have to worry about constantly going back and re-checking every website’s rank by hand.

The very handy schedule module

Advanced Web Ranking also has a great tool that can crawl through clients’ websites and automatically be able to tell how interconnected the site is, and other SEO issues. Of course, this cannot replace the eyes of an experienced SEO, but in the right hands it can help a lot. When I take a client on-board I usually start with website SEO check and this can really help.

SEO Tutorial :- See what you are Publishing Guide

As client websites grow larger, there are more chances for something to go wrong, such as a broken link, a redirect or forgetting to enter Meta information. Advanced Web Rankings spider lets me print out a report and send it to my clients to let them know what is wrong and how they can fix it. This is something that not many other SEOs do, helping me look better in my clients’ eyes.

If only I could have 1% of that wasted link juice…

Picking the right keywords is essential for optimising a website. The keyword research module can help you get a clearer picture of what keywords you should be trying to rank for, and if a certain page on a website should rank well for specific keywords (it pulls data from Google AdWords).

www.cnn.com - social shares

In addition, I can run it through other websites and find which keywords they are most likely trying to rank for, helping me to paint a better picture of what keywords are profitable for my client. This is something else that not many SEO providers do since it would normally take a lot of extra time and effort to go to several competing websites and do a full keyword analysis on them. With AWR, it is fairly simple because the program does most of the work for you.

Bonus  Reading Post:- Check Out The Principles that are Shaping SEO in This Year!

One of the best features for educating and retaining clients is the social media module which helps you track what people are saying about your clients in Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. This is something that clients feel they can have a direct, daily impact on, and they love the reports I’m able to show them which demonstrate how if they increase their social media interaction, they can expect a rise in followers, likes, +1s and more word of mouth advertisement. AWR lets you build a long-term timeline as well so you can show your clients what the current trends are for them, and how they compared to the past (more screenshots over here). Sure, you can do that by hand but this takes so much time and on top of that, who likes repetitive tasks?

There are several other features of AWR such as the link tracker, which can help you see what kinds of links you currently have, and what your competition has. This ties in with the competition module that lets you see how the websites you manage for clients stack up against others trying to rank for the same keyword, and how you can use their own methods to surpass them.
Overall, this is a great tool for anyone involved with SEO or who has an online business.

There are different ways to protect and prevent viruses from getting into your iOS device and its Apps.

Use a credible and recognized antivirus

One of the best ways of protecting your iOS Apps is to install a recognized and credible antivirus. There are many kinds of applications on the Internet that claim to be exceptional antivirus programs. However, it is very important to use antivirus applications that come from credible and recognized manufacturers such as Norton. Norton is a good example of a credible antivirus since they are well recognized in many countries and the company has a Norton contact phone number that can be used as a support forum. The following points can be used to identify an appropriate and efficient antivirus.

This will help you to identify details about the applications. Reviews reveal certain irregularities that may be an indication of viruses once the application is downloaded. This will prevent you from downloading applications that are suspicious of introducing viruses to your device. It is also important to learn about the developer of the applications.
