A 7-year-old boy, Devon Carrow-Sperduti, has potentially fatal allergies and must spent most of his life at home. Even one day in school can kill him. But now Devon has a special VGo robot that is linked to his home computer. The face of the boy appears via webcam on the robot and the boy can see the class, the teachers and his classmate via robot's frontal camera. The robot has its own desk in the classroom and can volunteer to answer the teacher's questions with a flashing light, rather than Devon raising his hand.
While Facebook today is an absolute juggernaut, with about one in seven humans on the planet being a "monthly active user," it's almost hard to remember that before November 2007, MySpace was the biggest game in town. Since then, MySpace has more or less been relegated to punchline status, a desolate place with fewer users than it had twinkling background GIFs. But it seems MySpace is about to launch a dramatic redesign of the site that brings its interface well and truly into the touch-screen era and, frankly, makes the gigantic Facebook site look a bit stodgy and old-fashioned in comparison.
"jub nazar se nazar vaar karta hain
saara din, saari raat, beqaraar karta hain
yun andheron mein teer chalane ka fayda kya hain
nishaana wo hain jo dil ko paar karta hain “
kabhi tum muskurate ho, kabhi nazaein churate ho
batao na mujhe tum kyu, aisey aajmaatey ho
magar bezaar hokar ke, jo apni raah main jaun
nigahon mein nigahein rakh ke tum wapas bulaatey ho
