Second Life

The latest brain-computer interfaces meet smart home technology and virtual gaming

TWO friends meet in a bar in the online environment Second Life to chat about their latest tweets and favourite TV shows. Nothing unusual in that - except that both of them have Lou Gehrig's disease, otherwise known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and it has left them so severely paralysed that they can only move their eyes.
These Second Lifers are just two of more than 50 severely disabled people who have been trying out a sophisticated new brain-computer interface (BCI). Second Life has been controlled using BCIs before, but only to a very rudimentary level. The new interface, developed by medical engineering company G.Tec of Schiedlberg, Austria, lets users freely explore Second Life's virtual world and control their avatar within it.
It can be used to give people control over their real-world environment too: opening and closing doors, controlling the TV, lights, thermostat and intercom, answering the phone, or even publishing Twitter posts.

Hey everyone...! I know I know, I don't even deserve to say sorry being gone so long, but I had some things I had to take care of. Anyways I am back now and I promise never to run away like dis ever again. SORRY all my readers for I ws nt here. Today I am gonna tell you all about HTML5.

 It is the fifth version of the standard HTML which aims at improving the language with support for the latest multimedia technology while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and other devices as well. HTML5 is intended to contain not only HTML4, but also XHTML1 and DOM Level 2 HTML as well...It contains detailed processing models to encourage more inter operable implementations---- it not only extends, but also improves and rationalizes the markup available for documents, and introduces markup and APIs for more complicated web applications hence making it completely suitable for cross platform mobile applications.
Moreover HTML5 can run on low powered devices hence making it even more desirable for applications being developed for smartphones or tablets....

HTML5 is also embedded with many new syntactical features like <audio>, <video> and <canvass> etc... and the Scalable Vector Graphic ( SVG) which replaces the use of generic <object> tags.
