Last year when we interviewed Nidhi Tiwari from Women Beyond Boundaries,
she was just back after spearheading a trans-continental expedition from
Delhi to London. It was a team of three and she was the only driver! Well
this time, she has outdone her last by a major scale and are we not proud
of her! On December 29th 2016, she became the first Indian to drive across
the coldest inhabited region of the earth and she did it all driving SOLO!
Not impressed? This is a road where even seasoned truck drivers (belonging
to that very region) double up because going there alone is like signing
your own death warrant. Our lady in shining armor did it alone!
Indian street kids are putting out their own newspaper to raise awareness of the injustices they face every day.
Balaknama means "the voice of the children" and it really is - some of the reporters are as young as seven, while the editor is only 16.
Children who live and work on the streets are a common sight across India. They might look happy, but most have a horrific story to tell.
In 140 government-run primary and upper primary UP schools, teachers are instructed to click selfie with students and day’s newspaper. They then share it on a WhatsApp group called attendance with selfie.
‘Doraemon’ is a popular manga and anime involving a robotic cat who travels back in time to help a young boy. Among Doraemon’s many tricks from the future is the ‘Anywhere Door’ which can be opened to transport people… well, anywhere. A VR take on this idea uses simple props to make a unique VR experience.
Bandai Namco’s ‘Project i Can‘ has made the Anywhere Door a (virtual) reality using the HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and a few simple props tracked with attached Vive controllers. The result is a compelling experience that turns the ordinary into the extraordinary. In the video heading this article you can get a glimpse of the Doraemon Anywhere Door experience which saw recent installations in out-of-home VR locations in Japan.
