I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.
If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

The placement cells in colleges such as the National Institute of Technology (NIT) in Kurukshetra or Vellore Institute of Technology University are on cloud nine these days. NIT had 115 companies on campus for placement (against an average of 70 till last year) and Vellore Institute saw Cognizant pick up over 1,600 students this year.
No wonder, then, that all HR studies on the jobs outlook are talking about a brisk to dynamic growth in employment opportunities in the New Year. The Manpower Employment Outlook Survey says the net employment outlook is 42 per cent, 5 per cent more than the same period last year, making Indian employers the most optimistic as far as hiring intentions are concerned globally.
Another study by Ma Foi Randstad last week said led by healthcare, the organised sector in India has added 1.13 million jobs this year, making it the best in the last four years, ahead of the previous peak in 2006 when 1.03 million jobs were added. This is a significant growth over 2008 when only 670,000 jobs were added. The number last year was 900,000.
Sectors like hospitality, real estate and construction, IT & ITeS joined the 100,000-plus jobs pack in 2010. And among the cities surveyed, Delhi and NCR have reported greatest employment generation by creating 113,897 jobs in 2010.
Most HR consultancy firms say they are projecting a salary increase of 8 to 16 per cent in 2011 with sectors like telecom and pharma leading the pack. Global HR consulting firm Mercer says it has revised its forecasts for 2011 and has made an upward correction in the salary hikes expected due to the positive sentiment running across industries at large.

Recently I have come across a really interesting website which provides free tutorial for all the web development technologies. This site provides u with simple tutorials that can be easily studied ...and will be helpful even for those who are new to web development...or do not know any basics. Here is a brief list of free tutorials available:
|« Full Sitemap||References »|
And one more advantage is that u can experiment with ur codes there itself....so it will be a practical learning too.
I've heard most of great developers have started their work from here...so lets give it a try...its penniless and u even don't have to bother about stepping out of ur home

How Motion Detection Works in Xbox Kinect
- By Tim Carmody http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=http%3A%2F%2Falok007.wordpress.com%2F2010%2F11%2F10%2Fhow-motion-det%E2%80%A6in-xbox-kinect%2F+&layout=standard&show_faces=true&width=450&action=like&colorscheme=light&height=80
The prototype for Microsoft’s Kinect camera and microphone famously cost $30,000. At midnight Thursday morning, you’ll be able to buy it for $150 as an Xbox 360 peripheral.
Microsoft is projecting that it will sell 5 million units between now and Christmas. We’ll have more details and a review of the system soon, but for now it’s worth taking some time to think about how it all works.
Kinect’s camera is powered by both hardware and software. And it does two things: generate a three-dimensional (moving) image of the objects in its field of view, and recognize (moving) human beings among those objects.
Older software programs used differences in color and texture to distinguish objects from their backgrounds. PrimeSense, the company whose tech powers Kinect, and recent Microsoft acquisition Canesta use a different model. The camera transmits invisible near-infrared light and measures its “time of flight” after it reflects off the objects.
Time-of-flight works like sonar: If you know how long the light takes to return, you know how far away an object is. Cast a big field, with lots of pings going back and forth at the speed of light, and you can know how far away a lot of objects are.
Using an infrared generator also partially solves the problem of ambient light. Since the sensor isn’t designed to register visible light, it doesn’t get quite as many false positives.
PrimeSense and Kinect go one step further and encode information in the near-IR light. As that information is returned, some of it is deformed — which in turn can help generate a finer image of those objects’ 3-D texture, not just their depth.
With this tech, Kinect can distinguish objects’ depth within 1 centimeter and their height and width within 3 mm.
At this point, both the Kinect’s hardware — its camera and IR-light projector — and its firmware (sometimes called “middleware”) are operating. The Kinect has an on-board processor which is using algorithms to process the data to render the three-dimensional image.
The middleware also can recognize people: distinguishing human body parts, joints and movements, as well as distinguishing individual human faces from one another. When you step in front of it, the camera “knows” who you are.
Does it “know” you in the sense of embodied neurons firing, or the way your mother knows your personality or your confessor knows your soul? Of course not. It’s a videogame.
But it’s a pretty remarkable videogame. You can’t quite get the fine detail of a table tennis slice, but the first iteration of the WiiMote couldn’t get that either. And all the jury-rigged foot pads and nunchuks strapped to thighs can’t capture whole-body running or dancing like Kinect can.
That’s where the Xbox’s processor comes in: translating the movements captured by the Kinect camera into meaningful on-screen events. These are context-specific. If a river-rafting game requires jumping and leaning, it’s going to look for jumping and leaning. If navigating a Netflix “Watch Instantly” menu requires horizontal and vertical hand-waving, that’s what will register on the screen.
It has an easier time recognizing some gestures and postures than others. As Kotaku noted this summer, recognizing human movement — at least, any movement more subtle than a hand-wave — is easier to do when someone is standing up (with all of their joints articulated) than sitting down.
So you can move your arms to navigate menus, watch TV and movies, or browse the internet. You can’t sit on the couch wiggling your thumbs and pretending you’re playing Street Fighter II. It’s not a magic trick cooked up by MI-6. It’s a camera that costs $150.
Kinect also has a stereo microphone to enable chat and voice commands. The tech on the audio capture is fairly well-known, but it’s worth observing that unlike the noise-canceling microphone you might have on your smartphone or laptop’s webcam, Kinect has a wide-field, conic audio capture.
This is because, unlike a smartphone, you wouldn’t want the Kinect’s microphone to capture only sounds close to it: It’d only pick up the sound of the television set. You want it to capture ambient speech throughout the room, such as that emitted by whole groups of people watching sports or playing games.
A traditional videogame controller is individual and serial: It’s me and whatever I’m controlling on the screen versus you and what you’re controlling. We might play cooperatively, but we’re basically discrete entities isolated from one another, manipulating objects in our hands.
A videogame controller is also a highly specialized device. It might do light work as a remote control, but the buttons, d-pads, joysticks, accelerometers, gyroscopes, haptic feedback mechanisms and interface with the console are all designed to communicate very specific kinds of information.
Kinect is something different. It’s communal, continuous and general: a Natural User Interface (or NUI) for multimedia, rather than a GUI for gaming.
But it takes a lot of tech to make an interface like that come together seamlessly and “naturally.”

We live in a dark forest full of wilderness. To make our way through this wild and dark forest we have to take the first step as nobody can guide us better than our own awaken soul and for that awakening we have to initiate our steps towards a brighter side cutting through the darkness.
