Discover the Hidden Uses of Your Cellphone
Ever wonder if your phone has any hidden abilities that
might be useful? Sure, we use our phones to stay connected and to play games,
but they’re also extremely powerful computers with immense sensing capabilities
thanks to the very small, very cheap sensor technology at our disposal today.
Much like the fabled tricorder from Star Trek, our phones are capable of some
astounding sensing, computing, and recording tasks, like returning the solution
to a calculus equation, or navigating a telephone call tree until a human gets
on the line. Or how about real time language translation? That's straight out
of Trek too, they called it the universal translator. From analyzing the
ambient audio frequency spectrum to real time earthquake alerts and more, the
phones in our pockets are much more powerful than most people realize. Join the
discussion to discover what hidden powers lurk inside your smart phone.
meeting on February 28 at 11am at Milford Public Library, 57 New Haven Ave. in
Milford. All are welcome.
