She Dared, She Did: Solo Drive On The Most Dangerous Road In The World In Siberia

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!

Doraemon ‘Anywhere Door’ Uses Simple Props for a Brilliant VR Experience 

‘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.

"Rather than thinking every kid will end up being an app developer one day, we're seeing it from the perspective that there are fundamental ways of addressing independent life skills and ways of thinking that coding is able to uniquely tap into," Smith told The Huffington Post Australia."
