IT Forum / Apps designing and youth development: 143play as a pioneer
« on: June 20, 2015, 02:32:20 PM »
New technologies are playing an important role in the lives of young people. From mobile phones to social media sites, from video games to virtual worlds, young people are immersed in a technologically rich environment, in a participatory culture where they are not only consuming content, but also producing it and sharing it with others. However, there has always been a concern regarding whether technology is destroying people’s creativity or not. Researchers, tracking children’s creativity for 50 years, have seen a significant decrease in creativity among children, especially younger children from kindergarten through sixth grade. This decline in creativity is thought to be due at least in part to excessive use of technology.

Nevertheless, the field of youth development has recently started to examine how the creation of content might have an impact on youth development. Much of the early work has taken a media effects perspective by looking at the impact of new technologies on children--as opposed to analyzing what children are doing with the technology. Also, too often youth experiences with technology have been framed in negative terms by highlighting the danger of new technologies.But, the studies missed or denied to look at the positive influences of it such as its educative value and creativity development.

Apps development can play an important role in the learning of our youth. When the whole education system is hankering after GPA 5 or Golden 5, students hardly get any opportunity to flourish their creativity. They are always on their toes to improve their academic results without any emphasis on their creativity. In this scenario, apps creation can really be a “learn with fun” activity for them. To clarify the role of creativity, we first need to understand its theoretical definition. Creativity is a combination of ‘novelty’ and ‘excitement’ and definitely apps development demands both of them. Now one may think that how a non-tech person will develop an application. Here comes the role of 143Play app engine where a layman can design an application using the given templates. In this platform, young people can enliven their innovative ideas and turn it into an application. Not only that, they can also upload their apps in Googleplay and earn from them. Thus it may eradicate their unemployment problem as well.

The students of tertiary level can derive huge benefit from 143Play. They can implement their learned knowledge in developing application and creation or development is considered as the highest level of intelligence (see figure 1). Furthermore, most of the undergraduate students need to submit projects in their final years where they need to apply their theoretical knowledge into practice.  During their projects, they can definitely use 143Play platform to give their thoughts a visual effect. It is to be noted that many billion-dollar applications were initiated as final year projects, such as Google, Facebook and many more. Bangladeshi youths can also bring revolutionary changes in the society by turning their productive ideas into applications using 143Play platform.

In conclusion it can be claimed that 143Play is pioneering the hype of apps development among Bangladeshi youth. They have many productive and inspiring ideas. If they get the opportunities to implement them, it will definitely nourish their creativity and intelligence and, at the same time, eliminate their financial crisis. Till now, Bangladeshi youths are only users of various application but they hardly creates since they lack specialized knowledge and expertise. Therefore, 143Play is there to remove that barrier and making apps development fun for everyone.

IT Forum / 143Play Analytics for Gaming Industry
« on: June 20, 2015, 02:31:00 PM »
Player Analytics is a key component of running a game as a service, which is increasingly becoming a necessity for running a successful mobile gaming business. When you take closer look at large developerswho are successful in gaming industry, you find that they do three things really well:

•   Manage their business to revenue targets
•   Identify hot spots in their business metrics so they can continuously focus on the game updates that will drive the most impact
•   Use analytics to understand how players are progressing, spending, and churning

Small studios, including the makers of Zombie Highway 2 and Bombsquad, have already started to see the benefits and impact of Player Analytics on their business. 143Play wants to make these capabilities available to the entire developer community in home and abroad. For that purpose, 143Play Analytics provides the following benefits—
Set your target revenue in 143Play Analytics by choosing a daily goal
To help assess the health of your games business, 143Play Analytics enables you to select a daily in-app purchase revenue target and then assess how you are doing against that goal through the Target vs. Actual report presenting in a chart.

Ever wonder how your game’s performance stacks up against other games? 143Play Analytics tells you exactly how well you are doing compared to similar games in your category.
Track player retention by new user cohort
In the retention report, you can see the percentage of players that continued to play your game on the following seven days after installing your game.
See where players are spending their time and struggling
Measured by the number of achievements players have earned, the Player Progression funnel shows where your players are struggling and churning that helps you refine your game and, ultimately, improve retention. You can add more achievements to make progression tracking more precise.

Manage your in-game economy with the Sources and Sinks report
The Sources and Sinks report helps you balance your in-game economy by showing the relationship between how quickly players are earning or buying and using resources.
143Play is excited to present this new tool to Bangladeshi game developers. It will be available within a very short period of time. With the help of this tool, one can run and predict the future gaming industry very easily.

IT Forum / Creating a new reality with 143Play and Bunon App Engine
« on: June 20, 2015, 02:26:27 PM »
Video games have been entertaining us for nearly 30 years, ever since Pong was introduced to arcades in the early 1970s. Computer graphics have become much more sophisticated since then, and game graphics are pushing the barriers of photorealism. Now, researchers and engineers are pulling graphics out of your television screen or computer display and integrating them into real-world environments. This new technology, called augmented reality, blurs the line between what's real and what's computer-generated by enhancing what we see, hear, feel and smell.

On the spectrum between virtual reality, which creates immersive, computer-generated environments, and the real world, augmented reality is closer to the real world. Augmented reality adds graphics, sounds, and smell to the natural world as it exists. Both video games and cell phones are driving the development of augmented reality. Everyone from tourists, to soldiers, to someone looking for the closest subway stop can now benefit from the ability to place computer-generated graphics in their field of vision.

Augmented reality is changing the way we view the world -- or at least the way its users see the world. Picture yourself walking or driving down the street. With augmented-reality displays, which will eventually look much like a normal pair of glasses, informative graphics will appear in your field of view and audio will coincide with whatever you see. These enhancements will be refreshed continually to reflect the movements of your head. Similar devices and applications already exist, particularly on smart phones like the iPhone.
The basic idea of augmented reality is to superimpose graphics, audio and other sensory enhancements over a real-world environment in real time. Sounds pretty simple, right?You might think that television networks been doing it with graphics for decades. However, augmented reality is more advanced than any technology you have seen in television.

Augmented Reality in your smartphone
While some of you might be amazed by the idea of augmented reality, some primitive versions of augmented reality are already there on some smart phones, particularly in applications for iOS and Android operating system. However, Bunon is working to come up with the more updated version of those applications, named “AugWorld”. With the help of AugWorld, smart phone owners can gather information about their surrounding area.The application use the phone's camera and GPS capabilities to show information about restaurants or other sites in the area, overlaying this information on the phone's screen. You can even point the phone at a building, and the application will tell you if any companies in that building are hiring, or it might be able to find photos of the building on Flickr or to locate its history on Wikipedia. Moreover, using your phone's GPS and compass, AugWorld will display information about local restaurants, including ratings and reviews, on your cell phone screen. You can touch one of the listings to find out more about a particular restaurant.

What’s next to AugWorld?

In future, people may not be comfortable to handle their cell phone due to its large size (since they are getting bigger in each new version) or they may find it difficult to look at the phone screen while walking on the road. For that reason, bunon from www.bdappstore.comis planning to make augmented-reality capable contact lenses and glasses that will provide users with more convenient and expanded views of the world around them. In the near future, you may be able to play a real-time strategy game on your computer, or you can invite a friend, put on your glasses, and play on the tabletop in front of you.
AugWorld is still not matured enough to be released but Bunon of bdappstore team is dedicatedly working on it. They are working day and night to make it a life-changing app.

The future of augmented reality is clearly bright, since it already has found its way into our cell phones and video game systems. But, unfortunately this technology is not so popular in Bangladesh though we have a large group of people who are using smart phones and internet on a daily basis and the number is increasing day by day. Therefore, Bunon is taking the initiative to introduce Bangladeshi smart phone and internet users with all these latest trends of technology.

Software Industry in Bangladesh / and Startup Dhaka
« on: July 17, 2014, 12:17:46 PM »
We are living in the Z generation where diversity and technology rule everywhere. This age of science is mostly characterized by touch screen technology and boost of social networking sites. But, the obvious question that pops up in our mind is “What next?” Being hammered by this question, a dynamic team of academics and IT experts started 143Play, an engine, in 2013 to set a new trend in technology for the next generation. 143Play is such an engine where one can play or use any games/apps and at the same time, they can create their own games and apps without any knowledge of programming. Yes, you got my point right ……without any knowledge of programming, in 143Play engine, the users can create any apps and games in their desired format and use it in their mobile phones or any other smart devices. Briefly, 0% knowledge of coding + 100% fun = 143Play. 143Play is targeting all the people who have the basic knowledge of using computer and internet. Therefore, the market opportunity is huge and increasing every day. However, the tech savvy young generation is the first potential user group of 143Play. Since game engine is already an established concept in the developed countries, 143Play can promote itself in the international market as well.

What makes 143Play exceptional? Few established companies are already providing the same experience but 143Play is far more different from them. For the first time in the history of game engine, 143play is providing native app support i.e. all the games and apps of 143Play is customized for Android, iOS, Windows, Xbox and so on. It also has educational apps, development tools for Game-As-A-Service Model. It is for the first time that any real game engine is operating in Bangladesh that includes gamification. It is to be noted here that gamification is the use of game to solve the problem of non-gaming context. 143Play is the first ever company who has introduced Virtual Reality in this country. It has developed games for Oculus Rift as an outsourced project. In a nutshell, 143Play is working dedicatedly to improve people’s experience of gaming and using application and to start a new movement in the global market. In addition, 143Play is organizing game and apps development workshops and boot camps in different universities to create new talents in this area. At present, there are 12 members in the team including cofounders, designers, developers, programmers and a marketing team. Participation in Startup Dhaka Startup Dhaka recently organized a boot camp in American International School. They received 100 proposals from different new entrepreneurs and selected only 30 proposals for the boot camp. 143Play was one of those 30 startups who get the chance to pitch their business idea in front of the judges’ panel and mentors. The experts from leading game companies, leadership professionals and investors from USA and Bangladesh, ornamented the judges and mentors’ panel.

Mustafizur Khan, founder, CEO, and Fayaz Taher, cofounder and CFO of Startup Dhaka motivated the new entrepreneurs throughout the whole program and the mentors were really helpful to nurture their ideas Contribution to the society 143Play is not just a mere business company who calculate everything in terms of loss and profit. Rather, it believes that contributing to the society is the firt and formost duty of any organization. Based on the value, 143Play is working to develop HIV app that will raise awareness and bring positive attitude among people regarding HIV and AIDS. An English language learning game named “Wishdom” is already there in Facebook. There are also some other upcoming games and application that will bring positive changes in the society.

Gaming Industry and it’s future in Bangladesh
Imagine a world, where people are busy to save their city, crushing candies, making their own village with crops millions of cows and goats. Yes- you are right, I am talking about games and an imaginary world. The world where everyone has freedom to do what they want. The industry is now growing rapidly and it is going up beyond expectation. The following figure (a) shows a prediction of gaming industry globally till 2016. In the figure (a), we can notice that the industry is now in$75.2 billion dollar in 2014 and expecting to boost in $86.1 billion in 2016.

Now the question is where Bangladesh stands. How we can improve in this billion-dollar industry? Are we ready to penetrate in this industry?
The answer of these questions is - YES. There are a lot of people who are actually working as a freelancers in oDesk, elance. And some of them even working in gaming projects. Where are our games in this industry which is commercialized as “Made in Bangladesh”?
It is true that there are several companies who are working in gaming sectors in Bangladesh. The top industries are , ttp://, . The following figures (b,c) are some of the games which have been made in Bangladesh.


As a founder of Games developers of Bangladesh group, we are putting best effort to create talented HR in this industry. The group is continuously arranging different app and game camps in different universities with the help of iOS developers of Bangladesh group (i.e. another promising group working in the IOS platform). The only things we need are skilled HR and a proper grooming session to help their ideas and monetize their efforts in terms of currency.
Concluding note
Whenever Bangladesh is discussed in any international context, it is viewed as a developing country that is always affected by flood and epidemics. Therefore, we believe that it is high time to change the scenario and show that world that Bangladeshi talents can do something great and change the world. Moreover, a sequential tutorial will be published in Techworld for games development. Since games and application industry is boosting every day, we can target this area to show our capacity and change the definition of games and application. With that vision in mind, we are working to develop skilled human resource in game development and we do believe that in near future Bangladesh will be renowned globally for its games and IT industry.

IT Forum / Future of Gaming
« on: October 20, 2013, 03:15:55 PM »
Technology evolves in amazingly rapid speeds. If you need any real observable proof of the speedy advancement of digital technology over the years, take a look at the gaming industry. From the very early years of black-and-white 2D games like Pong (1972) to the first 3D game, 3D Monster Maze in 1981, and from primitive first-person shooters like Wolfenstein 3D (1992) to complex, life-like shooters like Battlefield 3 (2011), there’s no doubt that the gaming industry has seen its fair share of technological evolution.

It’s has been exciting ride for all of us gamers, both casual or hardcore types. Most of us have a wishlist for how games will turn out in the future. Well, it’s hard to say if they will come true, but we might very well extrapolate from existing trends, which is the whole point of this article. Here are 5 features you can expect in the future of gaming.

1. Immersive Gaming: The Return Of Virtual Reality (VR)
Some of you may be surprised to know that 3D films have existed since about a century ago. The technology just didn’t really didn’t take flight since then due to high costs. It is not until In the recent years that we’ve experienced the revival of 3D technology not only in films like Avatar, but also for gaming screens.

We have also seen the evolution of video games in terms of its graphical quality, so much so that one would have difficulty differentiating a video game from a real-life scene today. It appears that there is a movement towards more immersive digital entertainment, from movies to games. The question is, where do we go from real-life 3D graphics and beyond?

A Virtual Reality Comeback
With major leaps in technology that resulted in improved hardware capabilities, virtual reality (VR) has started to resurface in the gaming industry. Of particular note is the upcoming Oculus Rift, a VR head-mounted display (HMD) created by Palmer Luckey.

Due to be released early next January for a mere $300, Oculus Rift features a massive field view (107 degrees), quick-response (ultra-low latency) head-tracking system, and incorporates immersive stereoscopic 3D rendering capabilities as well. Its prototype which was showcased in various gaming conventions has already received numerous positive reviews from game developers and internet reviewers alike.

2. Secondary Screens For Gaming
With the booming market for handheld devices like smartphones and tablets, the console war between the three major brands (Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo) has intensified, with a rush to invent a secondary gaming device for players.

Wii U
Consider the newly released Wii U GamePad, which features a built-in touchscreen that can serve as a supplement to games. In first-person shooter games, a second screen lets you access the map or your inventory seamlessly without leaving the game field. What you can do with a secondary screen is not limited to that, it adds to the gaming experience which is demonstrated wonderfully in this ZombiU gameplay trailer out for an inside view (Warning: the video contains gore and violence).

Even Microsoft is catching up with the competition with the advent of Xbox SmartGlass. However, unlike the Wii U, SmartGlass is an app that acts as an additional tool for gamers to interact with. It can be downloaded into and accessed from smartphones and tablets to enhance the gaming experience.

Sony Cross-Play
Sony has taken its first step to integrate their Playstation 3 console with their handheld device, PS Vita via the Cross-Play feature, allowing the gamer to stop playing on one device and resume on another device.

3. Open-Source Gaming
Look at the number of free (or cheap) homemade games available in the mobile market today and you will have an idea where future games may be heading: Open Source! For instance, Ouya is an Android-powered, upcoming video game console (to be released April 2013, pre-order here) that works under the concept that games should be cheap to build and cheap to buy.

Independent developers do not have to purchase an expensive software development kit (SDK) to create games and release them to the market. Ouya offers 1080p gaming experience and contains tons of free-to-play and affordable games at only $99, it’s hard not to see where the attraction lies with Ouya.

Game Development
The console itself is the development kit, so anyone can build a game if they wish to do so. Making game development easier and cheaper creates more creative gamemakers, giving rise to more variety of free-to-play games for everyone. Games of the future may no longer be monopolized by major game developers, much like how video-making has been made mainstream by Youtube.

4. Augmented Reality (AR)
On top of seeing your actual physical environment, in Augmented Reality you will be fed with additional information or data overlay, digitally, in real-time. One good example of AR in action will be the mobile app, Wikitude. Holding up your smartphone and pointing towards your surroundings, the screen reveals nearby restaurants, ATMs, hotels, etc for your navigation.

In gaming, there’re already gaming apps like DroidShooting, a simple shooter game which lets the player interact with the surroundings in real-time. Holding your smartphone up, you will need to shoot targets appearing from everywhere around you. This is very primitive gaming, of course, but there is a window of possibilities for such a gameplay concept.

Eventually we may even have a gaming session with wearable UI like Google Glass where you don’t even need to hold up a console or device, and playing a game almost feels like you’re on the ground in the gaming realm.

5. Cloud Gaming
With more reliable and faster internet connections, the technology of cloud computing has begun to gain some momentum. The Sims creator Will Wright embraces the idea of cloud gaming as a crucial part of the future of the industry. For one thing, the gaming industry sees it as an oppotunity to make games as easy to access as music and movies.

With Cloud Gaming, we need not wait forever to get updates to high-quality games. It’s all in the cloud and all we have to do is connect to it with a stable Internet connection and play to our heart’s content. Games will also be cheaper and more easily accessible via computers and even tablets. How much longer need we wait for this? In August 2012, Sony has purchased Gaikai the world’s largest and most widespread cloud gaming service for $380 million and is expected to incorporate it into Playstation 4. So, not long, fingers crossed.

Software Developers Forum / How to repeat commands in OS X Terminal
« on: June 20, 2012, 01:44:22 AM »
As you use your system, you can repeat the above command to keep printing the line of the configuration file and see if and when it changes when performing another task (altering settings in the system preferences, running programs, etc.). While you can type out the command over and over again, there are some options you can perform to run the command again:
Command repetition
The default bash shell used in OS X supports the use of two exclamation points (!!), which if entered will simply run the previous command again. Therefore, after entering your command you can just type the two exclamation points followed by Enter, and the command will run again as you initially entered it.
Command re-entry
In addition to the two exclamation points, you can make use of the Bash history using arrow keys. The Bash shell stores a list of the previously entered commands, and if you press the up arrow, then you will display the previous command, or be able to go further back in the history by continuing to press the up arrow. When the command you wish to run presents itself, you can then execute it. This option is convenient if you wish to alternate between two common commands in order to run your specific task.
Command substitution
Another option for rerunning commands is to use command substitution, in which you can run the previously entered command but change one aspect of it, which is commonly done. For instance, if you wish to remotely log into a server, then you can run the following command:

This command will log you in using SSH to manage the specified server using the command line; however, you might wish to exit your SSH session and then access this same server again using sftp to download a file, which would be done similarly by the following command:

Since both of these commands are identical except for the "ssh" and "sftp" part, you can use the command re-entry option mentioned above to access the previous command and then move your cursor to the "ssh" component and edit; however, this can be time-consuming. Instead, you can use a command substitution option that is supported in Bash, which will rerun the previous command but allow you to switch "ssh" with the desired "sftp."

To do this, after having exited your "ssh" session, run the following syntax using the caret character, where the text in the command following the first caret will be replaced by that following the second caret:

The result of this will be to access the same server with "sftp," and not require you use arrow keys to navigate and change command components. Furthermore, this syntax will not be stored in the Bash history, which instead will store the altered version of the command.

Telecom Forum / Microsoft Surface RT
« on: June 20, 2012, 01:24:43 AM »
The tablet wars are no longer a two-horse race between Apple and Google.

At a press event in Los Angeles today, Microsoft unveiled Surface, a line of tablet devices running the company's next-generation Windows operating system.

The Surface tablets feature 10.6-inch touch-screens wrapped in a magnesium case that Microsoft calls VaporMg (pronounced "Vapor mag"). The distinctive feature of the new tablets is a magnetically-attached, 3mm-thick Touch Cover that folds down and functions as a full touchscreen keyboard.

Another cover option, the 5-mm thick Type Cover, has a built-in track pad. The keyboards power down when they're folded back against the tablet thanks to a built-in accelerometer.

The Surface tablets will be available in two distinct versions. The Windows RT version -- which is effectively the "light" version of Windows 8 -- will launch with Windows 8 in the fall, and run on an ARM CPU. While it won't have the full desktop version of Windows 8 (it runs only the "Metro" apps available through the Windows app store), it will include a version of Microsoft Office at no additional charge.

Surface RT tablet key specs

IT Forum / Pervasive Computing
« on: June 18, 2012, 08:33:34 PM »

Pervasive computing is the next generation computing environments with information & communication technology everywhere, for everyone, at all times.

Information and communication technology will be an integrated part of our environments: from toys, milk cartons and desktops to cars, factories and whole city areas - with integrated processors, sensors, and actuators connected via high-speed networks and combined with new visualization devices ranging from projections directly into the eye to large panorama displays.
Pervasive computing goes beyond the traditional user interfaces, on the one hand imploding them into small devices and appliances, and on the other hand exploding them onto large scale walls, buildings and furniture.
