Run Android on any PC using new Remix OS by Jide

Ever wanted to run Android apps in your PC? Yes I get it was already possible using Emulators. But now the good news is Jide had introduced a Remix OS for PC, Which will allow you to run Android in your PC.

First Android was only compactable with ARM processor architecture, Then Android x86 project developed android for x86 architecture version of Android which can be run on Pc’s. But it has its own limitations. The main disadvantage was smartphone interface is entirely different from PC’s. in this stage the new Remix OS getting its importance.

Jide, the same company by former Google employees which came up with Android based personal computer ‘Mini’ is behind the new OS. First remix OS was introduced for the Mini, now it’s out with upgraded PC configurations. & Jide is offering the OS free of charge to anyone who wants to run Android on PC.
The new OS is the forked version of Android Lollipop which can run on any x86 computers. You just have to download the OS & you can run it on your PC using a Fat 32 flash drive with minimum of 8GB. Now Remix OS based on lollipop is out, soon we can expect Marshmallow based one.

Minimum System Requirements

  • A USB 3.0 flash drive that supports FAT32 format, with a minimum capacity of 8GB and a recommended writing speed of 20MB/s.
  • A PC with USB legacy boot option.

You can run this OS on any PC with USB legacy boot option, after the use you can carry it in your pocket. According to Jide website "With Remix OS for PC, you can also conveniently house Remix OS on a USB stick. That means you can literally bring your Remix experience wherever you go. With most computers in the world powered by x86 chipsets, you should have no trouble finding."

Energy generating speed humps

In your view there may be many uses of Speed Humps like Safety, Speed limiting etc, What if i say speed humps can be also used for power generation? you heard me right using a simple setup we can effectively us speed humps for power generation, So why speed humps? After consuming non-renewable source of energy for years people are looking forward for renewable source of energy.Search of energy lead to power generation using sunlight, wind, tide etc.
When talking about new source of energy people are asking for effective, renewable, maintenance less, nature friendly energy sources. When talking about energy generation using speed humps all above conditions are matching so this method can be effectively used to power street lights, traffic signals etc.

Six Leg Kinematic Moving Machine

Four bar linkage are the closed loop kinematic linkage , they perform a wide variety of motions with a few simple parts. This project discusses the design & fabrication of one such mechanism (Four Bar Mechanism). In this project Six Leg Kinematic movement works on Grashof’s principle which states that the sum of the length of the shortest and longest links must be less than or equal to the some of the other two links.

However this condition is necessary but nor sufficient. Mechanism satisfying this condition will fall into crank-rocker mechanism, double crank mechanism and double rocker mechanism. A frame, connecting rod, crank & a lever constitute to obtain the required motion. In this project we tried to show mainly the application of simple four bar mechanism.


APPLICATIONS It would be difficult to compete with the efficiency of a wheel on smooth hard surfaces but as condition increases rolling friction, this linkage becomes more viable and wheels of simi…

Mechanical Spider using Klann Mechanism

The invention provides a walking device which stimulates a gait of a legged animal. The device includes a frame with spaced axial mounts, a leg, axially connected upper and lower rocker arms which limit reciprocating leg motion. The leg is driven by a connecting arm powered by a rotating crank. The position and configuration of the axial connecting sites establish a prescribed orbital path that the foot undertakes with each revolution of the crank. Both rocker arms and the crank are axially mounted to the frame.
The leg has a hip joint axially connected to the upper rocker arm for limiting hip motion, a foot and a knee joint axially connected to the connecting arm. The connecting arm has three axial connecting sites, one for connecting to the knee, another to the crank, and a third connecting site defined as a centrally disposed elbow joint connecting site which connects onto the lower rocker arm and limits knee joint motion. Under power, crank rotation is transferred to the connectin…
