Dropbox and the Hack...Yeah you now have 3GB!!

Among the various cloud storage provider I like Dropbox for its drop-dead simpleness. Even more than what Box.net supports. And I use it for many purposes.
It has a free2GB scheme with a very competitive pricing. But even then how would it be to get some space free!!

Dropbox is without a doubt the most popular online file storage and desktop syncing solution. By default, users get 2GB of free space when they sign up for a Dropbox account. Considering the popularity and usefulness of Dropbox, I am pretty sure everyone here would wants to increase their storage space for free, if possible. The Dropbox referral system is a nice way of increasing your storage space for free, but the problem is that in this age and time nearly everyone owns a Dropbox account.



Last year, HTC announced that it would be offering up to 5GB of free space on Dropbox with its Sense 3.5 based handsets. This year, the company announced that it would be offering a whopping 25GB of free storage space on Dropbox for 2 years with its One series of handsets. So yeah, if you own a Sense 3.5/4.0 based phone from HTC, chances are you have more than enough free space on your Dropbox account.
Now, one XDA member – theos0o – has modified the Dropbox APK file that ships with Sense 3.5 handsets. The modified APK file is tricked into identifying non-HTC Android handsets as an HTC branded one, which then increases your Dropbox account storage space by 3GB for 12 months. Yeah, that last bit is a bit saddening, but even then 3GB of free space on Dropbox for 12 months for free is pretty damn useful.
So what are you waiting for? The modified Dropbox APK file can be downloaded from here. If you already have the Dropbox app installed on your handset, un-install it, and install the modified APK and sign in. You Dropbox account will then automatically get credited with the free 3GB of storage space. When done, you can uninstall the modified Dropbox APK file and install the latest version from the Android Market again.

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
