Thus, the option of using a docking keyboard with all Asus Transformer Pad models makes the gaming experience a bit easier. The users have the luxury to get connected through the docking keyboard and enjoy unlimited gaming all day long.

This varies depending on the model you choose, but the more expensive Transformer Pads – like the Infinity, boast a screen size and image resolution that will have even Apple getting nervous :P. The all new stunning 10.1 inch of screen size is something amazing for the gamers.

Infact, this is the only product to boast a 1.7 GHz CPU and has the capability to support the PS3 and Xbox controllers.

HDMI Port

The Micro HDMI port of TF700 and some of its other Asus versions helps the users to connect the device to monitors or big screens. It helps them to play the games and enjoy a unique experience. You can get them connected through the wired PS3 or Xbox controllers. USB compatible games can also be played. It even supports gaming through dongle devices. So, what more is awaited and it’s time for the gamers to jump into action!!!

Games

This has been a key area where all Android devices have always been lagged behind by Apple, but more of the popular iOS games than ever are now available for Android as well. In addition, really good games are starting to be designed for Android devices like the Infinity in particular, such as Zen Pinball THD.

Google store is stuffed with brand new games that are nascent when compared with the popularity of its Apple counterpart. However, the Android games are all set to give a tough challenge to the Apple games.

The transformer pads come with amazingly sharp and clear images even on big screens when connected. It is the perfect device for the full time gamers and the money you spend on this device is rightly justified.

II. CSV File Method to Transfer Contacts from iPhone to Android

Another method, though this one is a bit complicated, includes you to create a sync of your contacts with Windows and then with Google, and for this you need to create a CSV file. Below are the steps in this process:

  • Connect your iPhone or any other iOS Device via USB to your PC
  • Open iTunes, select your phone and click the Info tab

IV. Transfer SMS from your iPhone to Android Phone

To have a back-up of your SMS and other messages, there isn’t any application from the house of Apple, thus you have to depend on some third party software. There are a few software available to do the same, in the market. You can download one from the SMS Export. Simply download the app and install it on your PC. Now, you need to have the same software on your iPhone from the App Store which is available at a price of $4.99.

Download the Android App ‘SMS Migrator’ from here and install it to your Android phone. Place the text file from the PC to the SD card of the Android and access the same over the app SMS Migrator. The app will do the rest of the work by providing you with the texts that you had over the iPhone.

For the rest of the stuff, you simply have to get them from the PC where they are already present in the iTunes library. Select and download them from the PC with the help of the USB cable. It is as simple as transferring media files to the pen drive or flash drive.

KegDroid – Android Based Beer Dispenser

What would it be like when a robot serves beer to you, depending on your needs and taste? Well, it is possible now with new Kegdroid, an advanced technology based beer dispenser developed by Paul Carff. Paul Carff , a senior developer at Google along with David Sainte Claire, a software engineer has come up with a tool to dispense beer.

Kegdroid - Android Beer Dispenser

What is KegDroid?

KegDroid is a  beer dispensing robot powered by Android ICS and looks like an Android Robot.

How was it developed?

Both the Google employees took a Motorola Xoom tablet and linked it with a beer dispensing robot that looks similar to Android. They then linked it in accordance with NFC integration to make a new breed called KegDroid. The Motorola Xoom tablet runs on the latest version of Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwich. The touch display of this version of Android allows the users to choose the beers of their choice and taste. It looks almost like Android Robot with a big touch screen making it very attractive.

How KegDroid works?

It only works after authorizing the user which is checked by NFC interface scanner over the table – a user is given with a badge to use it. You just have to scan the badge over it to pass the scan and it will show the username on top of the screen. Each badge is given with special Google+ identification.

Here is a video of how the Kegdroid Beer Dispenser works:

There are several types of options which can be seen on the main menu screen, the right side of screen shows the “select your beer” option where you can select the type of beer according to the brand and type. Each beer is given a rating out of 5 stars and classified into categories of alcohol rate, brands and taste.

After selecting the beer, users need to choose the quantity of beer they want by selecting 1 Oz, 8 Oz to 12 Oz and then press the “pour” option. Flow sensors and solenoid valves control the flow of beer and are connected to the Motorola Xoom and NFC integration software and hardware. The operation of flow is still not the perfect but is not bad either.

This beer dispenser will take care that no one else drinks beer from Kegdroid without your permission as it will accept only  authorized badges. The KegDroid also shows the temperature of its own on the bottom right corner and the speed of the pouring beer. It’ll be perfect for bars and offices, even beer lovers can have it installed in their homes.
