AR

What is AR? It may say sound new but it is that thing that we use in our every snapchat post or even play on foot .Yes,i am talking about Pokemon Go. The pokemon we see on our screen and behind it is our real background is an example of AR. AR stands for 'Augmented Reality'. The snapchat filters that we use is also an example of Augmented Reality.

Augmented means supplement. This means it adds sounds,images,graphics.etc to your screen. It creates a reality which is enhanced and gives it a modified or upgraded look. 

The earlier versions of Augmented Reality can be seen in cricket matches. The score board which is at the bottom of the screen is also a AR. 

A more fictional AR can be seen in the mask of Iron man. The Jarvis displays important information about the objects which can be see through the mask.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VR & AR 

VR and AR sound same but are different in their concepts. Virtual reality creates reality in the virtual world while AR only supports the real world. Sometimes the the graphics added by the AR view may be virtual or sometimes real. For eg - The radio frequency waves may be added in AR view which are are exactly located in space. 

AR helmet is a helmet for people who are engaged in construction work. This helmet helps them to make them informed about the construction sites and their sensitive parts or danger parts.

COMPONENTS NEEDED

The main component of AR is the camera. This is very essential component as without it you cant enter into the real world. We often need GPS for AR viewing. 

For a good AR view we need various kinds of sensors. This includes accelerometer , compass , gyrosensor , microphone .etc. 

AR GAMES AND SOFTWARES

As previously told pokemon go is a AR based game.


It uses an AR based technology. The main character i.e miku comes infront of the screen while the background comes behind it through the camera .

The basic concept of AR is used in QR CODE scanner. A box comes in center of the screen which denotes where the code must be kept. As a additional graphic is added it is a AR based app.

AR GEARS

MOVERIA BT -300

It is one of the lightest and smallest AR headset. It can run with android 5.0.

AR + VR

AR is more useful when used with VR. VR viewing needs AR technology to give it's users the best experience.

AR + VR BIKING

In this game you need to sit on a so called bike and ride it as you do. You can ride it on a mountain or a narrow bridge. The handle of the bike uses AR technology while VR lets you enjoy the virtual world.

LEAP MOTION

Leap motion is also an an example of VR+AR technology. It is similar to Kinect but in a more specialized way. It exactly senses the gesture made by your hand and prints on the VR headset which you are wearing.

Anode Ray Experiment

→Anode ray experiment was conducted by E Goldstein. →These rays are also known as canal rays. →This experiment helped in the discovery of the proton. Apparatus Used A discharge tube  was taken in which there were 2 electrodes i.e. Anode(+ve) and the cathode (-ve). The tube was filled with an inert gas. A perforated or porous cathode was used. A layer of zinc sulphide was placed at the back of the cathode. There was a vacuum pump in the tube. High voltage (5000v-10000v) was allowed to flow through the system. It was observed that when the gas was at 1atm(atmospheric pressure ) no change was seen in the tube.  When the   pressure   was decreased inside the tube, a glow could be seen at the back side of the cathode.

Animal and Plant Cells

 Cells Cells are the basic functional, biological and structural unit of life. The word cell is a Latin word meaning ‘small room’. Cells are also known as building blocks of life.  The branch of science that deals with the form, structure, and composition of a cell is known as Cytology. All organisms around us are made up of cells. Bacteria, ameba, paramecium, algae, fungi, plants and animals are made up of cells.  Cells together form tissues. And tissue together makes an organ. History Of Cell The cell was discovered by Robert Hooke in 1665. He assembled a simple microscope and observed a very thin slice of cork under his primitive microscope. The cork was obtained from the outer covering of a tree called bark. Robert Hooke observed many little-partitioned boxes or compartments in the cork slice. These boxes appeared like a honey-comb. He termed these boxes as the cell. He also noticed that one box was separated from another by a wall. What Ho

Isotopes, Isobars and Isotones

Isotopes These are elements which have the same atomic number but different atomic mass . They have the same atomic number because the number of protons that are inside their nuclei remains the same. But, they have different atomic mass because the number of neutrons that are also inside their nuclei is different. As the number of protons inside nuclei remains same, therefore the overall charge of the elements also remains same as in isotopes: no of protons = no of electrons . Hence, as isotopes overall charge remains neutral, therefore their chemical properties will also remain identical.   Therefore, Isotopes are chemically same but physically different.

Cathode Ray Experiment

This experiment was conducted by J.J. Thomson (Sir Joseph John Thomson) in the year 1897. This experiment proved that atom is made up of fundamental particles which are much smaller than the smallest atom 'hydrogen' This experiment helped to discover electron. According to J.J. Thomson, the cathode rays consisted of very light, small and negatively charged particles. He named the particles "corpuscles" which were later known as electrons

Levitation 2

LEVITATION II To be completely honest I was going to start this with a pun. I did think of one but it doesn’t float… I am sorry I just had to. Anyway, this is the second part to the article on super cool ways of making things levitate. Go check the first part out if you haven’t already. Actually, the first part may have become repulsive with all the magnets and stuff, but I promise this will be more attractive. Get it? No? I’ll stop now. I am just going to jump straight into it. 1.    Electrostatic Levitation I know you are probably sick and tired of magnets but they are the best way you know… This method is somewhat similar. You remember that cool science experiment you did with two straws attracting or repulsing each other based on their charge? So basically using the same principle we can make a charged object levitate. But before you try it, let me tell you it won’t be easy. Even impossible according to our Mr. Earnshaw. He even made a law (the law is

Pokemon Go 0.33.0

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment Hey, Guys, most of you might have heard about the alpha ray scattering experiment and if you want to know in detail about Rutherford's model and the experiment he conducted, this is the right place for you... But first: Things You Must Know Some basic information that will help you understand rutherford experiment properly: Proton is a sub-atomic particle which is positively charged and has a mass of 1u. Alpha particles are helium atom with a charge of +2 as they have lost 2 electrons. Alpha particles have an atomic mass  of 4u. Gold is highly malleable and can be beaten into very thin sheets. Experiment Rutherford conducted his experiment in the following way: Rutherford took a very thin gold foil and bombarded it with high energy alpha particles. He placed a layer of zinc sulphide on the walls where the experiment was taking place because when alpha particles strike zinc sulphide layer, it results i
