In general , even in adults virtual reality apps can can cause motion sickness and sometimes seizures for epileptic adults and children as well. That’s part of the reason why the number of vr apps for kids are way smaller compared to the ones for adults.

The games undergo a lot of scrutiny, multiple tests, and are forced to meet up with extremely high and strict standards before it is fully developed and released for people to download and use.

Nevertheless here are the top VR apps for kids  I’ve selected for you and they are the best you can find out there:

Pierhead Arcade

This app takes you to an old-time arcade that comes with a Skee-Ball and the claw crane games with prizes. I know you probably felt that those games were rigged in such a way nobody would win but you still kept playing so you could win the stuffed teddy bear.

Just imagine you could have your own personal game arcade that comes with games like Whack-a-Mole, Skee-Ball, Claw machine, and all the other classic games? . Well you’re in luck as the pierhead arcade comes with all of it.

Pierhead Arcade comes with all those arcade games you spent a lot on , and it still gives you prize redemption tickets you can use to select your price at the counter

Cloudlands Mini Golf  VR 

Currently Available On: HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, OS VR

Cloudlands VR Minigolf brings mini golf to the virtual world and trust me they’ve done an amazing job at creating a very immersive virtual reality experience

The theme of Cloudlands Minigolf is quite bright and very colorful and it does not stop there. The controls are extremely easy to learn and use but it doesn’t mean it would be that easy to play the game. The game can be extremely chanllenging and frustrating but it’s the frustration that makes it fun to play.

The mini golf courses are that come within the game are pretty challenging, but the real deal is the game’s course creation mode. This means your kids can create their very own virtual mini golf course so you won’t bother about them tearing up your backyard to do that.

Kids can even share their mini golf courses with the world when they have  finished making their masterpiece. They can also play  on mini golf courses made by other children

How Multiple Cameras Work On Android And iOS Smartphones

How Multiple Cameras Work On Android And iOS Smartphones 1

How multiple cameras work on smartphones have always been a question on the minds of most people and 2019 is the year of multiple cameras and many if not all smartphone brands have released phones with multiple cameras. You’ve probably seen the Nokia 9 Pureview with 5 cameras and the Huawei P30 Pro that comes with 4 cameras  (40MP + 20MP +12MP +TOF Camera) and 50x optical zoom.

How Multiple Cameras Work

These two devices come with crazy specifications but I won’t go into that right now, maybe in another post.

However, have you ever tried covering the main camera of your device with a dual camera?

If you haven’t, try doing that right now.

You’ll notice you are actually blocking the whole camera. That leaves the question – What do the secondary cameras do and how do they work.

How Multiple Cameras Work

Now I want you to understand this. Most OEMs have other uses of their secondary camera other than the ones I’m going to mention below. These are just the basic functions of the secondary camera.

The secondary camera improves the overall clarity of the image with the help of a “Monochrome” feature. The secondary camera only records the black and white version of the image. With the help of the Monochrome sensor, the primary camera measures how much light is coming from the point of focus.

Previously (with the exception of the Google Pixel 3), the primary camera in smartphones normally handled the measurement so there was a very high possibility of losing some detail while measuring light intensity since it would still need to work on the color filtering.

So this extra burden is handled by the second camera which takes care of that area. Combining the monochrome image which has detailed information about the light and sharpness with the colored image that was captured by the primary camera will produce a rich and detailed image.

In some phones, the secondary camera acts as the zoom lens. Huawei uses their cameras on the P30 Pro a bit differently but going into the entire details might end up making this post a bit lengthy and a bit boring for people who aren’t hardcore techies so I’d try to keep this balanced. However, if you’d like to see that in another post do let me know in the comments.

So that’s basically how multiple cameras work on smartphones

Google Wifi For UBA – Google Partners with UBA to Provide Free Internet

Google Wifi For UBA

Google Free Wifi For UBA Customers is here and it seems we all are going to get faster internet access but like with most things that come from foreign brands, there’s a little limitation.

Google Free Wifi For UBA

Google Free Wifi For UBA – How It Works

Google just partnered with UBA to provide free WiFi across 11 locations in Lagos State, Nigeria.

Google Wifi For UBA

Seriously, Just in Lagos. Google I’m disappointed. Even Facebook did the same thing with their Express WIFI.

According to reliable sources, the Wifi service would be available at 11 locations in Lagos State and is an extension of the Google Station initiative launched at the #GoogleforNigeria event held last year.

However, the good news is that Google said it will roll out the service in 200 locations in five cities across Nigeria before the end of 2019.

Google Station actually started in Lagos last year and extended to Abuja in December in partnership with Backbone Connectivity Network.

This Google-powered initiative would allow customers access to internet connectivity within the 11 branches and its environs, thereby facilitating their day-to-day businesses and activities, while ensuring unhindered connectivity.

I feel this would actually make standing at the ATM queues at the banks less boring.

Google Free WIfi UBA

The 11 branches where the hotspot will be located are: UBA Bank Road, 810-811 Bank Road, Daleko; UBA Matori, 21 Fatai Atere street; UBA Surulere, 152 Ogunlana Drive; UBA Allen, 13 Allen Avenue, Ikeja; UBA Tisco Plaza, Alausa; UBA Apapa, 11-13 Warehouse Road, Apapa; UBA Marina, 55 Marina, Lagos Island; UBA HQ, Broad Street, Marina; UBA Lekki Admiralty; UBA Oke Arin and UBA Aspamda Plaza, Trade Fair.

Google Nigeria’s Country Director, noted that the institutions remained focused on providing internet services to users for free.

She said, “With the help of our partners, we are offering high-quality internet access in heavily-trafficked areas like airports, markets, malls and bus stations throughout the country, especially in areas where there were no internet connections before.

“Even with the amazing progress on expanding mobile internet, we are finding that public Wi-Fi remains a crucial step in getting free, high-quality internet to everyone,” she explained.
