Smart Suitcase... will be a very common term in the upcoming months. As Samsonite and Samsung are joining forces in a partnership to come up with a new technology aimed at bringing a new smart luggage concept, suitcases fitted with microchips, allowing you to track them using GPS.
"Smart luggage will be able to communicate with you but it needs to be able to do much more than just give its location, We are working with Samsung to create something that is more than a gimmick." - said Samsonite chief executive Ramesh Tainwala.
He revealed that in the future the luggage might even be capable of sending you a message when it has left the aircraft, about to appear on a baggage carousel, as well as when it is being opened. In addition, they are working on a solution that will see the luggage follow its owner automatically. It's a blue sky idea where your bag will be following you 6 inches behind like a programmable remote control car. Let's wait and see what these two giants firms will bring us.
Being able to express yourself as an artist is a necessity for a lot of creative people. In this day and age machines and devices overtook the usual tools of magic making and we see more and more creators implementing advanced technologies in their craft. It's a fascinating alliance, one we couldn't envision working couple of decades ago. The person that is able to compose a masterpiece using robotic capabilities of gadgets is worthy of admiration, that takes a lot of talent and then some. But let's give some props to machines and talk about how you can create beautiful sketches on your Mac.
It becomes evident that Mac is the best outlet for your creative juices when you find out that the infamous Adobe Photoshop program was originally introduced on that exact platform in the long gone October of 1988. Back then they were making waves under their Macintosh gimmick. Apple products would cater a lot to the artsy part of our population and supply designers, architects and animators with all the tools necessary. There are loads of amazing apps that would give you the opportunity to create pieces of various difficulty levels, everything from simple doodles to images that would take your breath away. It's easy to be creative when you have no handcuffs on you!
Tools For Design
App store will give you so many mouth-watering application options that you will be spoilt for choice, as you can find very solid utilities for free or spend some money for premium level digital equipment. That market provides both amateurs and professionals equally. You will be able to choose a software that would hit all your personal requirements and please even the most extravagant tastes you may have. Feature heavy and complex apps are a better fit for people who have been around the block and have their experience in the field, while simplistic tools would favor those who only start their artistic journey. It only makes sense to talk more about our assistants!
Apps To Try
1) Starting from the most basic and user-friendly app - Paint Brush, it is very similar to the Paint we had the chance to use on Windows, and it is a good starting point for the most beginners. It is built for sketches, as the toolbar offered to you has all the starter "weapons". It's perfect for children and those of us who are not so gifted with brushes and pallets.
2) The next software goes by the name of Sketches, and it's not hard to grasp what exactly this app was built for. It is a versatile program that can be considered a step up from Paint Brush and can be used for creating commercial artwork! This vector-based gem is regularly used by web designers and is not too complicated for total rookies.
3) Our next contender for your favorite painting place is Made With Mischief, a unique canvas that doesn't limit your aesthetic flow relying heavily on the classical paper and pen partnership. Don't worry, you can modify your brushes and develop your own instruments for drawing minimalistic pictures.
4) As we are focusing on sketches, it's time to introduce arguably the best app for scribbling out there. It has all the info you should know about it in the name - SketchMee. The technology level is as advanced as one can wish! It will aid and guide you through the processes that will result in portrayals and illustrations of unprecedented uniqueness and quality.
5) If you don't think that none of the above fit you well, then it is time to introduce a Sketchbook Express application. It acts as an ultimate program that has everything that you need for doodling and even more. Loads of layers, preset brushes of different purpose and intuitive interface for the most enjoyable user experience will make you a pro and help you create works that will dazzle your audience!
Only you can decide if you belong in the group of learned artists or enthusiastic casuals. It is very easy to start drawing even now, you just need a bit of time and inspiration!
