Hosting a site and a clueless souls

My last night(I wrote this post on 25th) was spent researching,buying and configuring my newly bought shared web space. As it happens I used to have my site along with other college fest sites I designed (or actually tried to design you might say) on a shared hosting server bought from webguru. But over the years I became very frustrated with their service. I still remember the last time at the time of our techfest,countless times I had to call them to explain that their server wasn’t updating the last modification date and it was causing a real pain as the users were getting a cached copy of the site.

And later i discovered that the site was frequently down for their server problems. So I decided it was time to move on. So after a lot of google search I zeroed on hostmonster. Alas I didn’t have any coupon codes so it costed me almost 71, but after the registration it was a pleasant experiences. Their cpanel was impressive, and they were supporting unlimited domain hosting too.

That was good for me. So far so good. I thought about testing their server speed a little so I uploaded my little leecher there and started a server to server leech to see the speed.And bingo!! The transfer speed was a whooping 8000kbps. though after a little time it went to an average 3000kbps but that too was more than what I’ll ever need :)

Going to configure the server tonight :D

Hope this has more ram than my previous one :(

It had only 64mb I need atleast 128mb.

ARCore and Arkit, What is under the hood: SLAM (Part 2)

In our last blog post ( part 1 ), we took a look at how algorithms detect keypoints in camera images. These form the basis of our world tracking and environment recognition. But for Mixed Reality, that alone is not enough. We have to be able to calculate the 3d position in the real world. It is often calculated by the spatial distance between itself and multiple keypoints. This is often called Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM). And this is what is responsible for all the world tracking we see in ARCore/ARKit. What we will cover today: How ARCore and ARKit does it's SLAM/Visual Inertia Odometry Can we D.I.Y our own SLAM with reasonable accuracy to understand the process better Sensing the world: as a computer When we start any augmented reality application in mobile or elsewhere, the first thing it tries to do is to detect a plane. When you first start any MR app in ARKit, ARCore, the system doesn't know anything about the surroundings. It starts pro

ARCore and Arkit: What is under the hood : Anchors and World Mapping (Part 1)

Reading Time: 7 MIn Some of you know I have been recently experimenting a bit more with WebXR than a WebVR and when we talk about mobile Mixed Reality, ARkit and ARCore is something which plays a pivotal role to map and understand the environment inside our applications. I am planning to write a series of blog posts on how you can start developing WebXR applications now and play with them starting with the basics and then going on to using different features of it. But before that, I planned to pen down this series of how actually the "world mapping" works in arcore and arkit. So that we have a better understanding of the Mixed Reality capabilities of the devices we will be working with. Mapping: feature detection and anchors Creating apps that work seamlessly with arcore/kit requires a little bit of knowledge about the algorithms that work in the back and that involves knowing about Anchors. What are anchors: Anchors are your virtual markers in the real wo

Road to the Grant : Immersive Payment

  This is a news close to my heart. My project "Immersive Payment" has been awarded with Grant for the Web , and I will be focusing on using Web Monetization to enable Micro Payment and for Web Mixed Reality assets, as well as for 3d contents. It took me almost five months from learning about the initiative to actually getting thee Grant. It all started back when in Mozilla TechSpeaker call a fellow TechSpeaker and a friend Andrzej Mazur explained bout the program. He himself is also an early awardee . After the talk, I got really excited and interested in the potential and concept of Web Monetization, however, it wasn't until June that I really decided to apply. The application process was a bit of roller coaster ride for me. I had an idea of what I wanted to do and also explored what is possible right now. But a bit of termoil in my personal life kept me from going beyond toy implementations. Fast forward to June end and I finally had the project chalked out with init
