This is an article that appeared in Technofirst about SPARA titled ‘Romancing Technology’…
The world has changed far more in the past 100 years than in any other century in history. The reason is not political or economic but technological — technologies that flowed directly from advances in basic science – Stephen Hawking
In the last century, a great philosopher said “the only thing without change is change”. But in this century, the modern philosopher says “even change has a change”. The dimension, direction and momentum of ‘change’ are changing. We live in such a fast changing century.
What are the causes of these changes? What is the greatest catalyst and factor for changes that has happened and is happening in the past century?
Human beings through millenniums have thought that the greatest tool for change is religion, philosophy, ideology, social factors etc. But the last century proved them all wrong. We, as a race have changed far more in the past 100 years than in any other century in history. Every field of human life has drastically changed in the past 100 years – The world witnessed the emergence of a new religion of mankind,” Science & Technology the dusk of the 19th century that “there is nothing to be discovered in the field of science any more”. But we saw that the discoveries made in the past century are far more in number than the sum total of all discoveries until then.
Man has conquered the moon, learnt to fly, swam miles under the water, and has even acquired the power to destroy even the entire solar system. Now we can communicate to anyone anywhere around the globe in just no time…
Who knows ! Probably, in future we may even have facilities of teleportation – transfer of matter from one point to another almost instantaneously!!
The fact of history is that till the moment something is invented, society always thought of it as impossible. This is true in the case of all great inventions. If we look at world history impartially, we may always see, that the discoveries made by us have helped us change and evolve. From the discovery of fire and wheel to that of internet, technology has always led the world.
Today, the world has reached a situation that can be best described in a famous quote.
“I don’t fear technology; I fear the lack of it”.
There is no denying the fact that our nation practically runs on technology…technology that leaves you spellbound! yes.. that is what we call “Intelligent technology”.
Technology that thinks and acts beyond machines. Technology that’s just at an arm distance from human beings. Technology that can probably replace human beings in future!!!
In spite of the anxious wait for such a scenario, its quite unfortunate that there are very few companies in India concentrating exclusively in this area…and Artin Dynamics is one among them.
Technology that can Think and make others Think is what Artin Dynamics is romancing with.
You have a habit of listening to music every night before falling asleep. Just while you drift to sleep,(say around 11 or 11.15pm), you switch off the music system by pressing the power button on your remote. (remember, power is still lost) This may continue for say 10 days. Will you believe me if I say that on the 11th day when you do this the system automatically cuts the entire power? You better believe it..this scenario is just round the corner. Artin Dynamics is working towards it.
Let’s say you believed me on that. Still consider the following situation.
Now imagine : On the 15th day you plan to quit music for that day and plug in a mosquito coil (which is not to be switched off by 11pm). In that case would you still believe me if I say that the socket to which the coil is plugged in automatically detects that it needn’t cut power by around 11 o clock tonight and continues to keep mosquitoes away all night?
Tougher to believe..but again Artin Dynamics is just working on that. The young and dynamic boys who form a strong R&D team in Artin Dynamics is keeping their focus unchanged on achieving this level of intelligence in their first revolutionary power saving product, SPARA.
Their hardwork ultimately proves just one point…they are simply in love with Technology.
When there is a team who simply loves technology, would spend any amount of time and money on it , and never ever think of a break-up, you call it “Romancing with Technology”. And it makes me proud to say that Artin Dynamics has been doing just that.
