Vibes rocks out and shakes wearables world all night long

first_imgFollow the Puck Small Business Cybersecurity Threats and How to… Tags:#featured#guitar#Internet of Things#IoT#music#top#Vibes For those struggling to learn the guitar, a new wearable startup, Vibes, may have just the way to help you out. Based in the UK, Vibes has been working on an ear training technology that is powered through a wearable forearm strap.  See Also: How to use machine learning in today’s enterprise environmentWhat Vibes has to offer is a change in the way you approach learning how to play. One of the early steps in learning guitar is getting your fingers in the right places on the fretboard, which requires constant practice.  But as you progress, understanding chords, scales and musical intervals by ear is the next big step. This is the area where Vibes wants to step in and help. After studying the neuroscience involved in music instruction, Philip Spivey, founder of Vibes, decided to develop a gadget that focuses on the association, rather than repetition.Still a work in progressTo assist with this process of ear training, one can use a mobile app that plays audible notes. Next, through a Bluetooth connection, the app triggers an accompanying wearable to offer a specific tactile stimulus on the inner arm.“This association, with a small degree of repetition, will help your brain in the future to recognize the same intervals or chords when you hear them in your favorite song, or in your head when you are improvising,” Spivey explains.The project is still in the development stages by Vibes, so further study is needed before knowing if this can actually help the guitar learning process.

Liquor smugglers on the wrong track in dry Bihar

first_imgIn dry Bihar, liquor has found a new route for tipplers: the railways. Drivers, attendants and employees have been caught in the recent past with liquor bottles in trains despite regular announcements that consumption, sale and trade of liquor in the State is illegal. On Thursday, a coach attendant of the Patna-Delhi Rajdhani Express was arrested by the Government Railway Police (GRP) for smuggling liquor in violation of provisions of the Bihar Prohibition and Excise Act 2016. Acting on a tip-off, a GRP team searched coach B-9 of the Patna Rajdhani express train and seized 15 bottles of Indian-made foreign liquor from a bag reportedly belonging to the coach attendant, Rambali Paswan, who was immediately taken into custody and later sent to jail.Earlier on Tuesday four employees, including the driver of the Ahmedabad-Patna Express train, were arrested after 24 bottles of IMFL (Indian Made Foreign Liquor) and 64,650 liters of countrymade liquor stuffed in a bag was seized from the driver’s cabin. Driver Mohammad Shashuddin was taken into custody after the train reached Patna Junction.Confirming the arrests, Patna superintendent of railway police Ashok Kumar Singh said the four persons have been arrested for smuggling liquor in the train. Half of the consignment was delivered to a bootlegger at Ara railway station in Bhojpur, said the police. “An FIR was lodged with the Danapur GRP against all the four railway employees who were produced in the railway court and later sent to judicial custody for 14-days,” said Mr. Singh. “Authorities have stepped up vigil on long-distance trains following intelligence inputs that liquor was being smuggled in them to the State.” More than 1.2 lakh people have been arrested and over 6 lakh litres of liquor have been seized ever since the new State Excise Act was enforced.last_img read more
