Montparnasse comes to Prague

PRAGUE – XX April 2013 –This 17th-18th May the famous art scene of Paris is coming to Prague. Montparnasse, the Parisian area that became home to world-class artists such as Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Ernest Hemingwayand F Scott Fitzgerald, will be recreated at Kampa Museum of modern art, in the heart of Prague. During the two day event from 11am to 10pm, the courtyard of the museum will be filled with artists, artwork and performers to inspire and entertain. From painters and the music of Edith Piaf to the latest exciting dance music coming out of Prague – there will be something to feed everyone’s artistic side, as well as a market to provide traditional French food and drink to feed their stomachs! There is no entry fee for the event, which is being held to celebrate the launch of a new global online tool for artists, called Toadsquare.

The Montparnasse quarter of Paris became famous during the 20th century as a place for artists from across the whole world to debate, create, learn and live life to the full. Toadsquare embodies this same philosophy for artists living the digital age – providing an online home for people working in the creative industries to share, collaborate, create and promote their work.

Marc Chagall, one of the greatest painters of the time, once said that in the 20th Century “The sun of Art then shone only on Paris“ but today it is different and in May the sun of Art will shine on Prague.

Google Glass – A Compact yet cool tech gadget

Smartphones have occupied our lives to an extent that if some fine day you walk out without your device, your day is incomplete. A recent IDC study of smart-phone owners recovered that 79 percent keep their device with them for all but two of their waking hours. And Google has claimed that Android users check their phones an average of 125 times per day. But with technology updating day by day, you can actually wear it in the form of wearable devices. Exactly…Wearable devices have gained a lot of impulse and symbolize the next phase in mobile computing. And when we talk about wearable devices, the first think that occurs in our mind is Google Glass and in fact it is the first device to enter the wearable market, others are smart-watches by Samsung, LG, iWatch by Apple (latest) and smart wrist bands.

So what is Google Glass? Mmmm…it can be said to be a wireless head mounted computer that is voice controlled and displays results in peripheral vision. It actually does not consists of lenses, instead it is a thin titanium frame with changeable nose pads. All the brain of Google glass is located at the right side. Left side is like an ordinary frame. Front portion consists of a touchpad and a 5-megapixel camera. You can easily wear this futuristic frame with no glass and can become a center of attraction. Since its launch in 2012, it has been a hot topic of discussion and attraction among most of the techies, who wont even mind spending $1500 to have it.

$1500…?? But why should one spend such huge amount just for taking calls, viewing notifications or reading mails. Are their more benefits of Google Glass? If this is your question then my answer is definitely a YES. Google Glass can perform like a second screen to your smart phone. Just connect it with your phone and operate it without using your hands. There are assorted ways to direct the Glass. It has a touchpad on the back side , that you can tap for navigation. You can even give voice commands to Glass by using the phrase “Okay, Glass”. Like “Okay, Glass” start a call or “Okay, Glass” guide by way. The best part is that you do not need to involve your hands in operating it. For instance you are in the middle of composing an important mail and require to make a call then just order the Glass and it will be done.

First Artical

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
