Electronic Solar Umbrella

There are places like your Backyard, outdoors, a village... where your Gadgets will stop working !!!

You will feel suffocated when your Smartphone or Tablet fails to respond to your caring strokes. Your Dupey is perishing due to Undernourishment. All you need is "Electronic Solar Umbrella" which was invented by me delabs on June 1st 2014.

Electronic Solar Umbrella

The Red Light is for Data Networking SmartUmbrellas using Advanced Multi-Threaded Infra Red Technology.

SUN - Smart Umbrella Networking

Resources - Electronic Firms and Electronic Projects.

I just invented the SmartUmbrella - My Drone is Rushing to the Patent Office. Keep this confidential till my drone returns safely, the beagle boys are using Blimps with Large Magnets to capture Drones.

Another model with an ability to charge Notebooks, Netbooks would be good. If i am allowed to stretch my imagination …..A Networked Model with an embedded Wi-Fi Repeater, which will just connect with other Home Products which have embedded Wi-Fi Repeaters. These form an endless wireless Daisy Chain of Gadgets in the Neighborhood. When a couple of these gadgets are connected to Internet and Mains Power, the whole chain goes online. The Lamps can also double up as flash media servers.

Just like 3G, 4G, 5G in the end will become WiG. A Hybrid WiFi authenticated by 5G technology. WiFi using a Chain of HotSpots on the ground is better than AnyG or nG Towers. If everyone watches HD Youtube Videos at the same time, the towers will come crashing. Wireless Optics are even better, better than anything, for large data transfers in homes, offices.

Hence with Wi-Fi chain and Tablets you got Web at low power. Web means PDF and HTML = Knowledge Data and Power. This power must be a low energy burden.

A Mini Solar Station and 24V Green 100W Bus in the Home can Power the Wi-Fi and Lamps. Recharge the tablets and keep working and learning. This is the worst case scene when we have energy shortage.

The Long term solution for Energy is Solar, Wind and Most important Ethyl Alcohol employed in the proper way to power Mini Generators and Automobiles.

Usability and Accessibility Enhancements

Tablets have tools for Communication, Browsing and Many Utilities. It needs to be usable by very old people and very young ones as well.  They need to be affordable and Robust too. Ability to survive falls, Grime, Water and Heat. It should be usable by people having Health issues too.

Usability and Accessibility Enhancements

Alert sounds likes chimes and rings are not enough, The Tablet must be able to yell and scream when it is far from the owner. The user needs to wear  a Bluetooth pendent with microphone .

When charge is low, it has to create a tantrum till it is fed...up. Some pricey models can have tiny wheels to move to the closest charging bunk. Some Vacuum Cleaners are able to move and recharge themselves.

When a SMS lands, it is able to read out loud and take a reply by voice and send it at once. Similarly the email could work on the tablets, all hands-free. The speakers and quality audio are on the tablet/pad and the pendent is just an additional microphone with bluetooth and vibrator with a titillate option.

Incoming  calls can move in tandem with an answering device and make loud Audio Visual Effects to get the attention of the Owner. The caller cannot wait, so the answering machine takes the call, says "please wait" and then rings the Alert Alarm Bells and even vibrates the Pendent. The Senior now can talk to the pendent and will get the caller's voice loud on the Phone. The Phone Audio has to be very good and loud.

If the room has a connected HD Monitor, even that can be used for the communication purpose. The user just needs to click the pendent to answer a call or video chat with family friends. In Business too, Large monitors and Loud Speakers can improve communication.

Smart PowerPacks or PowerBanks+ can be the Charging Stations. The Power Packs with docks can have the wheels and intelligence to recharge the device on alert, they will also recharge themselves from the mains power, whenever required.

Expensive Phone or PowerPack Models can have Drone Mode. I say this emphatically because the Dilbert Dupey develops wings after the mutation, This indicates that quad-copters, drones were predicted. It could be that, One fine Day the Tablet+ may Fly!

PC User Interface and Wireless Power

Wireless Charging is a Reality today, it was first conceived by me in the 90s. The first page published related to that in my netscape site.

This was conceived to get rid of cables for data and power on my desktop. I felt if we use Optics for Data and Wireless Ferrite Contact Plates to transfer power, there would be no wires at all on the desk. I even experimented with RS232 Serial Port and Ferrite Slices below thin Acrylic Plastic Sheet, it worked.

I did not patent any of my concepts, but it is offered to all humanity as an Open Design, like all my other work.

Here is a planar transformer which has PCB tracks for winding. This show that there is more scope of innovation in such ferrite transformers for short range wireless power.

PC User Interface and Wireless Power

Objects kept on a electromagnetic table must be able to draw energy from that. A Notebook or tablet can be just placed on this table to get charged.

The optic ball-less mouse is a great step in mice-tech user-interface. This mouse consumes more power, for a wireless mouse a capacitive sensor matrix based sensing may be better.

Touch Screen on PC is not common place. A combination of Touch screen and Mouse is excellent for all age-groups. Large monitors can have at least two inches of touch screen area at bottom.

Laptops, LCD Monitors make UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) last longer and it reduces electricity costs.

 Wireless Power for Wireless Peripherals

Wireless Mouse with capacitive sensors may consume less power, no batteries works on a Supercap, Connector-less ferrite dock for recharging

Wireless mouse rechargeable battery can recharge while moving on the Mouse Pad made of Ferrite/Ceramic 1′ Sq with Power Hot Spots every 3″

Flexible Ferrite, Silicone & Ferrite based Solid emulsion. Can be made as computer table mats to charge the supercaps of peripherals.

The Energy Efficient Wireless Peripherals can just be placed on this mat to draw the power without wires. Wireless power and Wireless Data.

Usability and Ergonomics Review
Aggregated Notes from 2008-12

Usability and Ergonomics of Electronic Consumer Equipment, product risks and safety are best studied with very old and very young people.

Personal Computers, Netbooks, Portable Communicating Devices, Remote Controls are where Usability Issues abound, and can be studied/remedied.

Optical Rotary Encoders, Magnetic/Eddy/Capacitive/Hall Effect based Non-Contact Joysticks, Makes Human An analog Interface with Digital Output.

For the people who type with two fingers; A Circular Keyboard is right. A Capacitive Touch Gesture Pad can replace the Mouse. Health & Ergo.
