A hybrid airship designed explicitly for freight transport can carry numberless things as its external load attached to the bottom of its structure, even the kitchen of a traditional Japanese restaurant. This kitchen transported by the hybrid airship would be a mobile building, therefore there is no need of rebuilding and refurnishing it upon the arrival and there is also no need of unforming it before the next transport.
The kitchen could function almost immediately after placing it on the ground, and it would be the capacity to serve those interested in Japanese cuisine at large open-air events, like festivals that host tens of thousands of visitors.
At the locations of the events, the mobile kitchen transported by the hybrid airship would be placed where it can be attached to the local water, sewage and electric system.
Besides the mobile building of the restaurant kitchen, countless services vehicles would be required for putting the kitchen in operation and for the continuous cooking. These vehicles would be for example articulated trucks with refrigerated semi-trailers for foods and beverages, lorries for the storage of different consumables and other equipment, caravans for providing rest to the staff, and a truck with a containerized mobile water purification system.
The hybrid airship would transport the mobile kitchen in the air from one venue to the other, while the staff would follow it to the new venue on public roads. After placing the mobile kitchen onto its location, the box body semi-trailers functioning as storage rooms and the refrigerated semi-trailers would be attached to the loading dock doors of the mobile kitchen. As a result of this, getting access to the food stored in the refrigerated semi-trailers would be as if the cooling chambers were actually parts of the mobile kitchen.
The mobile kitchen would arrive on its own stands, which would be at least two meters high and would function as a frame. The height of these stands would be individually adjustable in order to compensate for the various heights of the ground.
At the event venues, a high-capacity dining tent would be installed next to the mobile kitchen, but the uniqueness of this globe-trotting Japanese restaurant would be that it could cover a venue with an area of multiple square kilometers by transporting food via drones.
Further functions of the hybrid airship:
The hybrid airship would not only function as a freighter, it would provide surface for advertisements as well. Its fuselage would be decorated with the national symbols of Japan, for example with the national flag, and it would advertise the restaurant with its name and its mascot at the same time.
After the hybrid airship places the mobile kitchen to its location at an event venue, it would pick up a communicational container delivered by a truck. This communication container would be able to provide Wi-Fi to the visitors of the given event. The energy supply of the communication container would be provided by generators attached to the turboprop engines of the hybrid airship.
The free Wi-Fi of the event venue provided by the hybrid airship would not only create a further place for advertisements, but at the same time it would provide the possibility of food order from the whole area of the event venue. Furthermore, it would also provide the communication system for controlling the drones (e.g. quadcopters) used for delivering the food.
Food order and drone delivery:
At the event venues depending on the expected number of visitors and on the area size of the venue, even a dozen of food vending machines would be placed. These circular structure large vending machines would have many lockable storage lockers. And there would be a small drone landing platform on top of them.
These vending machines would be equipped with robotic arms capable of grabbing and moving the standardized delivery boxes between a landed drone and the storage lockers.
In order to display menus and for processing orders via electronic payment methods, several large-sized screens would be installed onto the sides of the vending machines. Around the vending machines dining tables and benches would be placed.
Every vending machine would have an individual identification number that could be recognized from a large distance, thus the food ordering could be done by smartphones from the whole area of the venue, requesting the delivery to a given vending machine.
With the help of the touch-screens on the sides of the vending machines, even video calls with the restaurant would be possible, and there would always be an expert on duty, who could solve any malfunction even if going to a vending machine is required.
The drones used for food transport would be powered by electricity, and there would be a sufficient amount of them to provide a prompt service in spite of the drones’ continuous need of charge.
The mobile kitchen of the Japanese restaurant could have large size and significant amount of capacity because of the possibility of hybrid airship transport. As a result of this, it could meet the needs of the visitors even at the largest open-air events, making them familiar with the flavours of the high quality Japanese cuisine.
Furthermore, the mobile kitchen is not only for different open-air events. It could be also placed in smaller or even in larger cities, where the vending machines could be placed in the most visited city parks and public squares. Pedestrian streets with cafes and restaurants are also visited by a lot of people, so that these would also be possible locations.
In conclusion, the only restriction for the globe-trotting can be the local regulations concerning drones.
B-1H Lancer - Battlefield short text messaging system - Deployable observer and radio transmission drone - Firefighting airship - Gunslingers - Hoverbike Championship - Japanese globe-trotting restaurant - Made in Tibet - Military sensor kit - Ohi Hybrid Power Plant - PCI card to Nokia smartphones - Secured infrastructure for the print media - Self-driving range extender trailer - Space Range - Star Wars Championship - Tactical puck - Take-off supporting drone - The fate of the Iranian people - Tokyo International Food Court - Urban retail home delivery - Water supply of deep space missions
Despite rapid technological progress, due to low-reliability artificial intelligence, the unattended self-driving will not be possible for a long time for the vehicles, but in this case trailer the driver of the electric car can provide the supervision.
Charging the car could be done by using a conventional cable, but the trailer would also be able to do this by magnetic induction. The coils would be installed into the rear bumper of the car and at the front of the trailer. Whereas the electric car and the self-driving trailer do not have to be physically connected, the use of the trailer can be extremely simplified.
Induction charging with low efficiency can be done while on the move, in this case the trailer at each stop, for example at crossroads and in traffic jams, would stand close to the electric car, charging the electric car's batteries for a few moments or minutes. And the charging could be highly efficient in the parking lots, where the trailer can approach the electric car even to millimeters.
The biggest problem with a self-driving trailer is that there may be a lot of situations when the trailer needs to be driven directly. Although the steering wheel and the pedals of the electric car can be suitable for this purpose, switching them to trailer control when the electric car is stationary, showing to the trailer environment can only be very limited in the electric car displays.
Because of this the remote controlling of the trailer could be very hazardous, therefore, a navigation aid device should be needed.
Simplified structural diagram about the navigation aid device:
2. Polymer dispersed liquid crystal layers. Each such layer would lie between two conductive layers.
3. Conductive layers. Like the SONTE Film (http://sonte.com), these layers provide the creation of the electric field, but in this case the conductive layers would not be continuous film layers, these would have matrix structure.
The polymer dispersed liquid crystal layers and the conductive layers would be horizontally stacked, and completely fill the interior of the device.
Two sides of the device would serve as the lighting and energy supply for the layers. The lighting of the layers is necessary because of their imperfect light transmittance, and the energy supply is needed to change the light transmittance of the pixels. The curved front of the navigation aid device would be transparent.
The matrix structure of the conductive layers:
2. Pixels. Virtually each pixel would be a tiny polymer dispersed liquid crystal cube with a maximum length of 1mm.
Benefits of the navigation aid device:
Like a miniature land, the navigation aid device could show the trailer and its direct environment in scale by using the trailer sensor data. Although visualization is merely based on the light transmittance of the polymer dispersed liquid crystal pixels, it would be perfectly suited to avoid obstacles.
In addition, the navigation aid device can also help driving the electric car in countless ways. The device can continuously show the exact location of the surrounding vehicles, making it easier to change lanes in large traffic, or even it can possible the perfect parking.
Since the navigation aid device would be part of the dashboard, and it would not be transparent when it's off, the device can be embedded in large sizes without breaking the design of the interior.

The easily accessible near-Earth asteroids have enormous economic potential, because they could create an unlimited source of key materials, ranging from titanium through platinum to gold. However, the possible processability and industrial usage of the material of the asteroids in space still requires a lot of research and development, so before setting up the asteroid mines, delivering the metal-containing asteroids onto the Earth’s surface would be worth.
Because of this, in my opinion, an enormous, unoccupied piece of land should be marked on the Earth’s surface as a space range, into which these asteroids could slam.
The first step of the process would be choosing the appropriate near-Earth asteroids, those, which composition is ideal for economic aspects. After this, the selected asteroids would be redirected into a high Earth orbit by robot spacecrafts. The necessary technology would be based on NASA's Asteroid Redirect Mission, although there would be a different method of capturing the asteroids.
In order to minimize the risk of an accident while an asteroid is redirected onto a high Earth orbit or when it slams into the marked space range, a size- and speed limit would be determined regarding the available asteroids. A possible risk factor can be for example a miscalculated entry angle or the malfunction of the robot spacecraft.
The robot spacecraft used for capturing an asteroid would approach the chosen asteroid directly and would release a thin metal net, into which the asteroid would fly. After that, by constricting the edges of the net, the robot spacecraft would fix the net on the surface of the asteroid.
This metal net would be lightweight and its structure would have only minimal load-bearing capacity, therefore, it would have no role in changing the trajectory of the asteroid. The metal net primary function would be providing the fixing of the robot spacecraft to the surface of the asteroid.
After the robot spacecraft lands on the surface of the asteroid covered by the metal net, a separate robot vehicle would detach from it. This robot vehicle would practically be a rocket engine that moves on spider legs. It would continuously connect to the robot spacecraft with a flexible pipeline, and the robot spacecraft would supply the energy and the rocket fuel for the robot vehicle through this flexible pipeline.
The robot vehicle could hold on to the metal net fixed onto the surface of the asteroid via its spider legs. As a result of this, the robot vehicle could safely move on the surface of the asteroid. Since the maximum diameter of a captured asteroid would be just a few meters, with holding on to the metal net, the robot vehicle could avoid drifting off from the surface of the asteroid in the absence of gravity.
The necessary trajectory change for redirecting the asteroid onto a high Earth orbit would be carried out by this robot vehicle’s rocket engine. Because the captured asteroid could rotate hectically along all three axes, it is possible that the robot vehicle has to use its rocket engine even half a dozen different locations on the surface of the asteroid in order to achieve the desired trajectory change. The spider legs of the robot vehicle would have wide folding treads in order to secure its stable position on the surface of the asteroid while the rocket engine is used.
Arriving on the high Earth orbit, another robot spacecraft could land on the surface of the asteroid. The second robot spacecraft would carry a dozen smaller robot vehicles, which would practically be replicas in smaller sizes of the robot vehicle of the first robot spacecraft. That is, these would also be spider-legged rocket engines, only less powerful, but in addition, these would be able to spread an ablative heat shield material such as epoxy resin to the surface of the asteroid.
Once the ablative layer is complete, the role of the smaller robot vehicles would be to serve as maneuvering thrusters until the asteroid enters the Earth's atmosphere. In this way the atmosphere entry can be planned much more precisely.
It also allows that the robot vehicle of the first robot spacecraft would not be used for the trajectory change from high Earth orbit, but as a braking rocket. Thus, the asteroid could be decelerated as much as possible before entering the Earth's atmosphere.
Since only metal-containing asteroid would be captured, its strong structure and the heat-absorbing ablative layer should be enough to withstand the air friction, so the asteroid could impact into the Earth's surface in one piece in the area of the space range. With lower velocity the impact force of the asteroid will still be high, but to an acceptable extent, and the scattered pieces of the asteroid will also be easier to find and collect.

The continuous supply of water is an essential factor of space missions since water is consumed by astronauts and they use it for other purposes too. These can be for example growing plants in space and protection against cosmic radiation. Water can be demolished into oxygen and hydrogen by electrolysis to provide the continuous oxygen supply of the astronauts while hydrogen can be used as refrigerant, for energy production in fuel cells or in ion engines as fuel. Furthermore, burned with oxygen, hydrogen can provide powerful thrust in rocket engines as well.
However, water supply to space missions as a payload mass of current carrier rockets is too expensive for the universal use of water in a large quantity. Because of this, a C-5M Super Galaxy transport aircraft should be transformed in a research and development program so that a railgun would be installed into the aircraft with the supercapacitors providing power for firing.
Charging the supercapacitors would be provided by separate generators attachable to the aircraft’ jet engines. As a result of this, after shooting with the railgun, the aircraft do not have to land, since the supercapacitors are rechargeable during circulation at a high altitude.
The railgun could launch such a solid-propellant rocket from the modified nose of the aircraft, which is capable of putting tens of kilograms of payload mass into low Earth orbit. These water carrying rockets could be small, simple and inexpensive ballistic rockets, without an own guidance system. After spending a short period of time in space, these would burn while returning into the Earth’s atmosphere, but before this could happen, a satellite designed specifically for this purpose would catch and drain these rockets on the low Earth orbit, with the help of its robotic arm.
This catching satellite would be able to maneuver by electrolysis of the drained water, using the oxygen and the hydrogen as rocket propellant, whether it's catching these rockets moving on a ballistic orbit, docking to the International Space Station (ISS), or about reaching the escape velocity and moving on the lunar orbit to the Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway (LOP-G).
The catching satellite could collect water from the rockets for months on the low Earth orbit, before transporting it to the ISS or to the LOP-G.
The C-5M Super Galaxy with its huge load capacity and cargo area would be ideal for carrying the railgun, which would be a much more ideal solution than launching rockets from the Earth’s surface. Because the C-5M would launch the rockets from a high altitude, the lower resistance of the rarer atmosphere and the acceleration provided by the railgun would give the rockets a multiple Mach initial speed, and plus the speed of the launched rockets would be increased with the speed of the aircraft.
Since the catching satellite will orbit around the Earth about every ninety minutes waiting for newer and newer water carrying rockets, a rocket can be launched from the aircraft for each circle of the catching satellite. The periods between launching could be used for charging the supercapacitors. The efficiency can be maximized, if the crew on the aircraft is shift working, the fuel of the aircraft is refillable from a tanker aircraft, in the cargo area of the aircraft even a dozen rockets can be placed securely, and the launching with the railgun do not require immediate maintenance.

Increasing the living standard of the population of Tibet is not only about eliminating poverty, since the economic power of the Tibetan people fundamentally determines their ability to enforce their interests from freedom through environment protection to autonomy.
However, the Tibetan development program of China is primarily about the extension of Chinese interests and about validating them at whatever cost, from education through transport to mining, therefore, with the Chinese economic development programs, the Tibetan people actually do not move forward at all.
In my opinion, because of this, the Central Tibetan Administration should start an economic development program, which would be explicitly about mitigating poverty in Tibet and about strengthening the ability of Tibet to enforce its interests.
Within the frames of this economic development program, the Central Tibetan Administration would appoint those Tibetan companies, which would really improve the Tibetan economy by selling their products. The companies could be family-owned manufactures or even multinational companies producing industrial components. A product packaging standard would be created for the products of these companies.
This standard visualization containing Tibetan symbols could be used on the packaging of any product, ranging from scented candles through washing powder to oil filters. This packaging would make the products of the appointed companies unique and recognizable from a long distance, so standardization would make it easier for the customers to identify the products as Tibetan.
The products would get the standardized packaging in Dharamsala in order to create jobs for Tibetan refugees and make the originality of the products verifiable. So every product that repackaged according to the standards created in this economic development program would get to the global market through Dharamsala.
Unfortunately, because of the Tibetan circumstances, the Tibetan products start with a competitive disadvantage compared to the average Chinese products, hence it is harder to sell the Tibetan products on the global market due to their inevitably higher selling prices. Furthermore, the repackaging makes the costs even higher, however, using the Tibetan symbols on the packaging makes it possible that customers feeling sympathetic towards Tibet will choose the Tibetan product from two identical products. By doing that, customers can facilitate the development of the Tibetan economy and the opportunities of the Tibetan people.
So this economic development program would be beyond small souvenirs and it would not even matter, whether the product made in Tibet is connected to the Tibetan cultural heritage or not. As a result, pharmaceutical, apparel and car components manufacturing companies could also join the program, if they fulfill the requirements of the Central Tibetan Administration.
Coming from its nature, there is a possibility to make an accurate list of the products taking part in the program. Because of this, retailers feeling sympathetic towards Tibet can develop some of their shelves especially for Tibetan products. In order to grab the consumers’ attention, the Central Tibetan Administration could create not only detailed product descriptions and various brochures, but also commercials related to Tibet. These would be made especially for touchscreens, that can be placed next to Tibetan products in retail stores.
Purchasing and repackaging the products of Tibetan companies, and transporting them to the global market through Dharamsala would be market-based, depending on the consumption of the given product. However, in case of bigger orders, the Central Tibetan Administration could play a liaison role towards the Tibetan companies.
The standardized appearance of the verified Tibetan products on the global market would result in higher marketability for the products of common Tibetan companies, even if the quality is the same while the selling prices are higher. Through these companies, this would really develop the Tibetan economy for the sake of Tibetan people. Meanwhile in Dharamsala, a huge amount of workplaces could be created, which would provide a real living for the Tibetan refugees.

Nowadays, warfare is based on communication capabilities that make the use of specialized ability units possible in coordinated ways, and among other things, gathering information for decision making. So drones with observational and communication capabilities have become a significant part of modern warfare.
This type of drone would basically be a remote-controlled electric helicopter, which could be launched from below an aircraft wing, thanks to its foldable structure, for example using the universal underwing pylon of the C-130 Hercules.
This kind of drone would work on the ground, the helicopter mode should only be for deploying.
Simplified structural diagram:
2. The upper main part of the body would include the communication and control subunits, the radios, the GPS receiver, the flight control computer, etc.
3. Each main part of the body would be covered with highly efficient solar panels, which could produce enough energy to keep the observation and communication equipment running continuously round-the-clock.
4. Optical and infrared cameras in a head unit which could rotate in all directions.
5. Telescopic structure to lift the head unit up to several meters. Thus, the field of vision can be dramatically increased.
6. Fixing and damping mechanism for the landing skids.
7. Electric wrist assemblies for lowering the landing skids.
8. Landing skids for the landing and for the stable horizontal positioning on the ground.
9. In terms of width and length, the size of the landing skids would be aligned to the lower main part of the body of the drone, since originally it would be folded.
10. Between the lower and upper main part of the body of the drone would be a connecting element, which also serving as a rotor. This rotor is driven by an electric motor.
11. Electric wrist assemblies for lowering two rotor blades.
12. Rotor blades. The rotor blades would not be only used in flying, but after the drone is on the ground, placing them in vertical pose the rotor blades could operate as separate wind turbine blades, helping to recharge the batteries.
13. In terms of width and length, the size of the rotor blades would be aligned to the upper main part of the body of the drone, since originally it would be folded.
14. Between the upper main part of the body of the drone and the telescopic structure would be a connecting element serving also as a rotor. This rotor would be rotated in the opposite direction by another electric motor.
15. Electric wrist assemblies for lifting two rotor blades.
16. Rotor blades.
17. The drone would have four rotor blades in total, two of them movable downwards, two of them movable upwards for the helicopter mode to be switched on.
Operation of the drones:
These drones can be deployed on higher urban buildings or hilltops, along major roads or smuggler paths, in a designated borderline, around a military camp, etc.
Since the drones can be launched from aircrafts, they can be deployed quickly in large areas at large numbers. And in case of not needing them any more, the soldiers do not have to go to collect them individually, because if their batteries are fully recharged, the drones can fly to a nearby secured collection point.
These drones would be particularly suitable for improving radio communication in operational areas, also observing and marking targets, while reducing the risk of unexpected surprises, such as enemy reinforcement.

There are tens of thousands of indoor and outdoor shooting ranges in the world, where shooting is practiced on a wide range of targets, but I think it would be worth using smart targets to expand the training possibilities further.
The Gunslingers would be a separate app that anyone could install on a smartphone. The app could connect to this smart target, making it possible to play a game in an Old West gunfight. The player must defeat ten gunslingers in the game, who would become more and more difficult opponents.
Simplified structural diagram of the smart target:
2. Two pairs of light curtain sensors would be integrated into the frame, which sensitivity would be adjusted to the size of the projectiles. One of the sensor pairs would be vertically embedded, so when a projectile crosses one of the light beams, the height of the hit can be stated.
3. The other pair of sensors would be horizontally embedded, so the location of the hit can be precisely specified in millimeters from the data obtained by the two sensor pairs.
4. Pedestal for placement. If it is equipped on a remote controlled electric vehicle, which could always rotate the smart target in the direction of the shooter, it would be ideal training with moving targets.
5. Roof structure, which would also serve as a protection against weather in outdoor shooting ranges.
On the front of the roof a LED light line would be embedded which would be perfectly visible even in strong sunshine. This LED light line could help in many ways, for example, green light and red light to indicate whether the shooters could shoot freely or not.
Multiple types of traditional targets, such as paper, cardboard or even sheet metal could be attached to the smart target. For example, the metal rod of a paper roll could be attached to the bottom of the roof. So the targeting can also be done to the graphical targets, and a LED lamp would be embedded at the bottom of the roof to illuminate the attached traditional target. This LED lamp can light up in multiple colors, so if the shooters overcame a target, then it could also be signaled this way.
A communication device and a smartphone-sized computer would be integrated in the roof, which would be controlling the smart target, and would allow continuous data connection between the smart target and the player's own smartphone via Wi-Fi.
6. Emulator to imitate the shots of the opponent. The emulator would be a device that could be used only with blank cartridges, and for safety reasons it could only fire towards the ground. The simplest version of the emulator would use blank pistol cartridges, which could be loaded from a larger capacity magazine.
7. A high brightness rating projector capable of projecting an image or video on the traditional target attached to the smart target. Thus, a wide range of targets could be projected on a white paper or a white painted metal plate.
Operation of the smart target:
The projector would project the video of the current opponent onto a white cardboard, which is attached to the smart target. The player would stand face to face with the smart target and wait for the signal, which could be for example a bell sound, or the opponent's move when he reaches for his pistol. The signal would always come randomly, avoiding the possibility of cheating.
After the signal is done the player and the projected virtual opponent would open fire. Obviously, the player would use an Old West style pistol and the video of the opponent's would change based on the player's hits. That is, if the player's hits miss the opponent or just are not perfect, the virtual opponent can shoot several times. Each time when the opponent shot, the emulator of the smart target would use a blank cartridge to imitate the shot.
The app would calculate the hits caused by the virtual opponent, among other things, based on his skill level, and would report the results to the player. If the player wins in the gunfight, he could move on to the next, stronger opponent.
Thanks to the app's versatile development capabilities and the universal use of the smart target, the challenge for the players could be kept with continuously updated newer game modes and opponents.
And meanwhile, it could raise the interest of ordinary people for shooting ranges.

At residential areas without an unlimited supply of water to extinguish fire, or at unoccupied areas without proper infrastructure, extinguishing extensive bush and forest fire is often an unsolvable task, because the opportunities of the delivery of the extinguishing material to the target location are always limited, independently of the number of the available tanker trucks or firefighting aircrafts.
The modern version of the legendary, ocean liner-sized Graf Zeppelin filled with helium instead of hydrogen would also be capable of transporting extinguishing material, because its payload capacity is similar to firefighting aircrafts. However, because of its significantly lower airspeed, it would be able to carry out turns too slowly.
Nevertheless, the airships’ ability of hovering at one place makes the on-the-spot creation of the extinguishing material possible instead of transporting those to the fires.
This new type of firefighting airship, which could have the length of three hundred meters, would have the shape of a pipe instead of the shape of a cigar, so that continuous airflow would be possible through the air channel in the middle of the airship, which can be up to fifty meters wide. Since the airship does not need the ability to carry payload, and could be controlled only remotely with a ground-based controller, the structural design of the helium containing balloons is not so limited. Because of this, the pipe shape of the airship could be achieved by joining a dozen ring-shaped helium balloons.
Every ring-shaped helium balloon would have a separate pressure-proof container, in which some of the helium can be stored in compressed form. Because of this, the lifting power of the front and rear part of the airship could be altered independently and differently. Owing to this, when the airship is above the fire, it could change from horizontal flying to vertical flying without the continuous usage of the numerous external turboprop engines installed on the airship’s fuselage. Consequently, the fuel consumption of the airship can be minimalized, because the rotatable turboprop engines would only have to balance the power of the wind, keeping the airship at a given place.
In case of vertical flying, due to the differences in atmospheric pressure and temperature, like in a solar updraft tower, the air will flow in the air channel, which runs through in the fuselage of the airship along its length. This will make continuous energy production possible with one or more turbines installed in the air channel.
On the surface of the fuselage of the airship, a strip of solar panels would be installed along its length. By rotating the airship in case of vertical flying, these solar panels would follow the Sun’s movement, making extra energy production possible during daytime.
Although the efficiency of the energy production, compared to an almost one kilometer high solar tower equipped with a greenhouse, would be only a fraction, but the produced energy would be enough to make water from the air with a high performance atmospheric water generator. Implicitly, the airship would use the continuously produced water to extinguish fire, releasing that as rain above the fire.
Although this type of firefighting airship will not make the quick and efficient extinguishing of extensive bush and forest fires possible, but it will allow that by constantly watering a smaller area or a designated borderline, the fire would avoid certain places, making the survival of the fleeing people easier.

In my opinion, it can be calmly stated that those part of the Earth’s population, which has the sufficient funds and the demand for the usage, has already purchased some kind of a smartphone. Because of this, when consumers change their smartphones, companies like HMD Global can only increase their own market share against the other manufacturers.
And since consumers encounter a great variety of offers regardless of their financial possibilities when they change their old smartphones, so for hardware manufacturers like HMD Global marking out from the mass is incredibly difficult. In addition, without an Apple-like own software environment and cloud services, keeping the extant consumers through brand loyalty is also nearly impossible.
Nevertheless, the brand loyalty can be increased, if HMD Global produces multipurpose smartphones, because after getting rid of these smartphones, the post-change fate of those can also get into the decision-making process of the consumers.
The PCI card:
By installing a new type of standardized connector into Nokia smartphones, those would be able to function in traditional personal computers, by placing them into cards functioning as a case and equipped with a PCI data bus.
Attached to the PCI card by a short wire, every type of Nokia smartphone equipped with this new type of connector could be placed into this type of PCI card, since the case part of the PCI card would be suitable for fixing smartphones of different size stably. Apart from the stable lock, it would also provide continuous cooling with the help of a fan installed onto the case.
While the PCI data bus would provide the continuous energy- and data connection between the personal computer and the smartphone, the new type of connector between the smartphone and the PCI card would also provide several other connections, from antenna to stereo sound. The reason for this is the following, to install everything into the rear console of the PCI card, that makes the use of the smartphone independent from the personal computer without opening the casing of the personal computer.
The following things can be installed into the rear console of the PCI card:
- GSM, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antenna
- One or more SIM card reader
- Different types of USB and other kinds of standardized connectors
- Different kinds of SD card readers
- Connector to a traditional landline
- Sound out- and input and a separate microphone input
- HDMI output
- UTP connector for a network cable
- Connector suitable for plugging in the standardized charger of the smartphone
Smartphone in the personal computer:
After installing the specially developed Nokia software containing the required drivers, the smartphone could be controlled through the operating system of the personal computer. The Nokia smartphone placed into the PCI card runs its own operating system and it is able to operate from its own battery after turning off the personal computer.
Since the energy charge could continuously be provided for the smartphone through its own charger, even if the personal computer is turned off, the symbiosis of the personal computer and the Nokia smartphone opens a vast amount of possibilities.
Examples of the usage:
The smartphone can function as a Wi-Fi Hotspot 24/7 owing to the external antenna on the rear console of the PCI card.
Through the SIM cards, the smartphone can still be used as a phone, either by using a headphone and a microphone, or by using a traditional landline phone. By having Internet subscription and supplemented with a webcam, a continuous video call is possible without using the resources of the personal computer. This makes the operation of the video call software possible in a small window without causing FPS (frame per second) decrease in the program that runs on the personal computer, even when someone is playing the most graphically demanding video games. Implicitly the smartphone could also function as a voicemail owing to the fact that the smartphone is continuously operable.
The smartphone can be ideal for controlling downloads from the Internet based on the user settings, since after turning off the personal computer, data can still be uploaded to or downloaded from the Internet by using the internal storage capacity of the smartphone.
If the personal computer is connected to the Internet via the smartphone, then the Nokia smartphone can be used as a firewall, thanks to its operating system functioning independently from the personal computer. For the same reason, running an antivirus program as a background process is much more ideal on the smartphone, and since scanning of the files would not use the personal computer’s computation capacity, it can be much more thorough.
Since short blackouts are not dangers to the operation of the smartphone, it can be ideal for storing backups, which can be continuous in case of word processors and other kinds of office programs by saving every bit of change immediately.
The continuous control of the home security system through radio signals or wires. Compression and saving of the incoming data from different cameras and sensors based on the user’s settings. Another option can be that after turning on the personal computer, the already stored data can be moved to the hard disk drive of the personal computer, which has a much bigger capacity. This would make data keeping possible not only for days or weeks, but for longer periods of time as well.
Listening to music in the background, or through the HDMI output watching videos or television channels on monitor or on television. Since the television connected to the smartphone becomes a smart TV, it can play any audio format and video files, and the Netflix and other streaming services are also available on it. Controlling this is possible not only by the personal computer but also by all kinds of smartphones through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth with the help of an application developed for this purpose.
The content of the personal computer’s memory can be copied into the internal storage of the smartphone, before turning the personal computer into sleep mode. Because of this, turning into sleep mode can be really complete, not only energy efficient.
Compatible programs installed onto the personal computer and onto the smartphone can be run on the smartphone, thus for example files can be compressed and videos can be rendered without using the resources of the personal computer. A new option can appear in the Windows Explorer’s menu in order to run a compatible program on the smartphone.
The smartphone can be used as a continuously operating e-mail server, but this kind of usage can also be aimed at storing an own website or at file sharing.
A Nokia virtual assistant can run on the smartphone continuously without using the resources of the personal computer. This can appear on the screen of the personal computer whenever it is necessary. The skills of this virtual assistant can be continuously developed. In the beginning, it could deal with the essential notifications, for example arrivals of new emails and finishing of copying, so it would not require a multiannual initial development, but over the years, it could catch up with Cortana, Siri or Alexa by continuous developments.
The smartphone can function as a dongle, or as a constant encoder and decoder device. Owing to this, data stored in the personal computer could be partly or totally coded strongly, thus reducing the possibility of unauthorized access to the personal data.
And also for a dozen other purposes.
