The Tablet in HandHeld Computing

Just some study i made, only the understanding or conclusion here. For the years 2012-16. Low power consumption means we all last longer, healthy, si no, carbon footprint, Ser hombre bueno.

Units and Metrics

Screen Size is in Inches. Carbon or ‘caramba’ is the color code to emphasize the energy consumption.
Power is the zap or punch of ‘P4 at 2 Giga Hz with 1GB Ram’ – Let us say, this configuration packs One “Gonz”.

Energy is the juice it takes on the average browsing, word processing or youtubing, in Watts.

What you saw and What you got

If a Video was created in a Lower Resolution it is no use showing it at a High Resolution. A Video created or acquired in High Resolution can be shown in any lower resolution.

Showing a Video in High Resolution in smaller devices will not help much. This is the limit of the Human Eye itself. So do not waste bandwidth and processing power in very small devices.

Gracias Senor or Senorita, for the patient reading.

Adiós Amigos, go for your Siesta.

As for me …..Ándale, Ándale, Arriba, Arriba.

I see a Splendid Future for Tablet Computers as they consume low power, portable, wireless web, ergonomic and affordable. They leave less eWaste when the product is disposed and it does not stress the Health of the user.

Tablets and Slates based on OpenSource OS. Even OpenHardware Tablets. This is a collage of various blurbs of mine in my other pages. An Home Appliance for Consumer Computing.

Why Tablets ?

  1. People want computing to be Personal and Portable and hassle free. With less Maintenance Tasks.
  2. Low Power or Green is the order of the Age, Fuel and Energy is not as easy, expensive and depleting.
  3. Low Carbon Footprint, The global carbon footprint of making, selling and scrapping tablets is low.
  4. The Technologies have evolved in Flash, Battery, CPU, OS, GUI, LCD, SMT and most Electronic Parts.
  5. Online – Web Computing and Cloud Computing offers Safer Storage and Powerful Web Applications.

Desktop Computer Reforms

Please pay attention to an earnest plea from a person who has pulled cards and ram from xt-at 286-386 days. Some people are innovating, at least follow those lines. Help make Desktop Computing Obsolete.

Dockables and Convertibles that means Tablets that transform into Laptops and Desktops. Then the Abominable Laptop Hinge or Lid failure will not bother you.

Tablets, Nettops, Netbooks and Notebooks are the future. Low power consumption, wireless, light, modular, low voltage.

Desktop Computer Reforms

If you are still fanatic about Desktop Computers, here are the ways you can move in the right direction, from legacy to Futuristic !

  • Make the internals of a Desktop computer, Dust Free. 50 Microns particle, not any larger.
  • Make the Desktop Computer SMPS and design Earth Free, Two Wire Only, No Y caps.
  • Let it work on a 12-24 V DC Bus/Grid Standard, With External Connectors. Adapter Outside.
  • No Fan should be used, No moving or Rotating parts inside, No Wires, good connectors.
  • Modular Plugin, Stackable System to be used for External CDROM/DVD and HDD Drives.
  • Flash Integration Internal for main OS Firmware and External Flash like HDD Stackable.
  • DVD, HDD, Flash Expansion on USB Removable or SATA Stackable like Building Blocks.
  • For a Whooping One Grand, People deserve a Backplane Plugin Architecture in the Desktop.
  • Box, LCD/LED Monitor, HDD, Wi-Fi must not consume more than a Maximum of 50 Watts.
  • All Internal and External Modules and Devices should go to quiescent state, non-obtrusively.

More to come, as i try to fix and break some more …

Present Day Work Time Utilization of man using Desktop Computing. –

  • 30% Updates and Installation of The Operating System, Safety Issues.
  • 20% System Admin, Networking, Application Installation and Updates.
  • 10% Hardware Problems, Interfacing, Sharing, Wire and Port Issues.
  • 10% Physical and Mental Fatigue and Stress Caused by above, plus Coffee.
  • 30% Productive Work Done. Means work done in a Job or Profession.

Most Important Specs. – Low Power, Wireless, Portable, Safe, Simple. The Browser is the Most and Only Important part of this Computer.

EDA and Product Design Ideas

I saw devices that are like Tablets. Handhelds, Nettops, Smart TV Computers. Low Power and enable to use the Internet on TV or any Display Device. Android is a nice Gadget OS, customise it to make your own device.

Gesture Android Tablet – Tweak and Squeeze

I was forced to Invent again, this time it is a Gesture Tablet. Tweak and Squeeze the Air above Tablet. 3D input device for Android Tablets. – 2011

A Tablet built with four embedded but slightly tilted cameras in the four corners and a dedicated ARM Input processor. This detects and interprets the ‘finger gestures’ to enhance the touch experience and also Sketch/Write with dummy stylus/brush.

Texas Instruments Embedded Processors Wiki

The software is as complex as speech recognition. For Factory Workers, Thick Skinned or Burly Hands you could totally switch to Gesture Mode.

Gesture Tablet.

Even if the Tablet Sports the Gorilla Glass, a Gorilla cannot use it with a Touch Interface, no not even a Chimpanzee. So Gesture Interface in very important for Larger 10 inch tablets. Makes Text input a Breeze and Boosts Gaming and 3D Capabilities.

How would you like to Make a Painting by just a gentle Swish and Swoosh of a Paintbrush over the Tablet. Even Drum your favorite tune by beating the Air on the Top of the Tablet.

Then you could create a 3D Sculpture on a Virtual Plaster of Paris block. You just need to download the right App, chisel and chip away the Air on the Tablet. When done, print to the 3D Cloud Printer Provider, a few hours later you collect the 4 numbers of 3D Prototype Prints from the Courier Man.

DAP Technologies – Mobile Computers

Let us take the Carrom Game as a Usability or Ergonomics Experiment, this game will be very effective only with a Gesture Tablet.

I got this idea after writing this feedback related to Touch Interface……

Butter Fingers and Ironman Thumb Issues

Not all Men/Women/Neumen are alike. Some have movements with less control and others like Hands-on Miners or Blacksmiths have fingers with a layer of Tough Corny Coat to protect it.

We need ‘Touch Gloves’ or ‘Touch Thimble’. These will empower even Ironman and ‘The Hulk’ to use a Tablet, Then only a Military Grade Space Ruggedized Version will do.
