We took an intense look at the new Windows 8 for smartphones and are impressed. It is smooth, fast, reliable and has some unique features, e.g. the animated tiles. That is why we now offer applications for this operating system. Contact us if you are interested.
Besides, Windows 8 runs also on normal PCs without any problem. I have installed it onto my own private gaming computer at home on a new SSD, and it starts very fast. One drawback here may be the new tile surface that works well on smartphones, but is rejected by most PC users. But it takes only one click to reach the desktop, meaning that you can completely forget the tile surface if you don’t want to use it. So, you lose nothing, but you win the new features and the new driver versions. Okay, you don’t necessarily need an upgrade if you use Windows 7, and probably you will miss the start menu (which can be cured easily). But apart from this, there are really not many arguments against the new system.
Motorola HC1 is a miniaturized computer for use in industrial applications that can be worn on the head.
Motorola Solutions, the U.S. manufacturer of telecommunications equipment, has developed the HC1 computer. It comprises an integrated screen, camera, voice recognition and headphones. In addition, compass, acceleration sensors and rotation sensors are available that detect where the user looks, and allow control with gestures. The total weight of the entire system does not exceed 800 grams, and is intended to be worn on the head. The manufacturer assures that the machine is to be worked with comfortably, even with a prolonged daily use.
The application supports individual growth as well as personal performance improvement and aligns it with the achievement of strategic enterprise objectives. This is accomplished by simple exercises that require little time and are performed daily by the staff.
iGROW can be used in companies, associations or societies of any kind that want to realize the full potential of their employees. Continue reading →

sense4c-TRF01 is an adapter for smartphones and tablets that is equipped with a high-precision, digital temperature and humidity sensor. It enables fast and mobile detection of climate conditions in buildings, garment components or intermediate layers.
The sensor is plugged into the headphone jack and requires no external power supply. The collected data are presented graphically on the display and recorded in the background. The smartphone provides additional information such as position data (GPS) and ensures that the data are synchronized in the cloud. The data transmission is encrypted so that sensitive information is secured. Authorized users can access the data from any location and may even intervene actively using the return channel.

Probably you have come to this blog because you are interested in iOS/Android-programming or in the applications made by APP-SOLUT. As you may know, APP-SOLUT is a division of the X-info company. Whereas APP-SOLUT is focused on applications for iOS/Android, X-info concentrates on more traditional software for the industry that is applied directly in the production process. It is definitely worthwhile to have a look at the kind of programs X-info is doing, because there are really some ingenious gems that deal with the huge amounts of data piled up in machine building processes.
One of these programs is the iProzer. iProzer means: intelligent process analyzer. It is a tool developed for the automotive industry that creates evaluations of quality and measurement data collected during the production process. Continue reading →
