Heat Press itself is a machine that has been designed to print a picture or design on a medium such as a material or t-shirt by using pressure and heat at a certain time. Usually heat press machine is used in the making process of t-shirt printing. To know more about the usefulness of this machine, here is some function of heat press machine to make money with your heat press machine at home.

The first function of heat press machine is transfer paper; heat press serves to transfer images from paper that has been printed to the material in the process of T-shirt printing. T-shirt printing by using transfer paper method is a process conducted by firstly printing the image or logo design with paper printers and using special paper (transfer paper), then transferred on a material / T-shirt using heat press machine. There are two types of paper transfer, i.e. the standard or light transfer paper for white T-shirt or light color; and the dark paper transfer transfer for black or dark material.

The second function of the heat press machine to make money with your heat press machine at home is by using sublimation method. Sublimation method is similar to a print transfer system. How does it works is firstly the design sketch is printed in other media, usually in the form of transfer paper. Then the paper is rolled with a minimum temperature of 200 degrees Celsius above the substance to be sublime. In addition to rolling, there is also other alternative of using heat press machine, but this way is not too faster than the rolling system. Moreover, the image dimensions are limited to the available dimensions of the press machine. This sublimation technique will be maximal if it practiced in polyester material. Keep in mind, sublimation is not suitable for cotton but it can only be sublime on white-based material or “light color” base material. Machines used as to support this method are a computer, printer with sublime ink, and heat press machine.

Actually there are still a lot of business that can be done to make money with your heat press machine at home based on digital printing. However, it would be nice to understand first the two business opportunities above and then directly apply it as you wish,

Which Technology Will Replace Your Smartphone in the Near Future: VR or AR?

Technology has become more and more advanced from time to time. And, it does not show any signs to stop its development. At the moment, smartphone is the most-used technology. We can text and call someone, browse the Internet, watch movies, listen to music, and many more. But, will it stay to be the best gadget forever? We asked that question because there have been some other devices which may replace smartphones. In 2016, we are introduced to Virtual Reality (VR). A lot of people, especially gamers, are going crazy about it. Then, there is also a similar technology called as Augmented Reality (AR), which are quite popular as well. So, which one of them will get to the top and beat smartphone? Let’s check them out individually.

Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality or simply known as VR is a technology which immerses people into a digital world. By using this device, we can see a complete different world with such a high quality visual. We will also get some new experinces with it.

   We can tell you a couple of reasons why VR is possible to replace your smartphone in a few years ahead. First, there is a fact that smartphone sale is slowing down. As a matter of fact, the sale of VR surpasses smartphone sales within only 4 years. Although the sale rate is not that slow, it proves that people have more interest to this latest gadget now.

Second, both gadgets offer different function. If we compare them, smartphone is more convenient to use. It has a lot more features than VR. However, there is still a chance for this new device to grow into something more advance. Soon it might have all the features in smartphone. Plus, it has other features which you cannot find in your phone.

Augmented Reality

Many people said that Augmented Reality or AR has higher chance to replace smartphones. It is because this device has better technology compared to VR. This one combines a lot of features in VR (e.g. stereoscopic 3D or positional tracking) with natural environments. Let’s take HoloLens by Microsoft as the example. This gadget is able to put a virtual screen on the wall of our real world. That makes AR can replace our television too.

What makes AR has bigger chance for the replacement is that some big tech companies begin to show their interest toward this latest technology. Besides Microsoft, there are also Facebook, Google, and Snap Inc. Each of them even have taken some steps in building their own version of the device.

From the comparison above, it is clear that AR is the one that will replace smartphones. However, it will not happen in anytime soon since smartphone has better function at the moment. It is important to note that either AR or VR is very difficult to get perfected. Not to mention, not all people can use these two gadgets because of their expensive price. Unlike smartphone, we cannot carry them to anywhere as we like. But, there is a chance that both AR and VR might come with better price and function. Consequently, more people will be able to afford it and leave their phone behind.

That is our prediction about smartphone, AR, and VR. So, what do you think? Will smartphones be replaced to any of these two gadgets? If it will, which one will you choose to go with?

What We Can Expect in Avatar 2

Have you watched Avatar movie? If you have, then you know how great this sci-fi movie is. We must give a big applause to the director, James Cameron. Using latest technology at that time, he successfully made one breathtaking movie with beautiful content. Now it has been 8 years since its release in 2009. It has been confirmed that there will be a sequel of the movie. We will get another chance to see Pandora and its native people, the Na’vi. While waiting for its official release, here are several things you can expect to see from the Avatar 2.

The Plot

In the first movie, it focused on the Hometree. It is a giant tree as well as the home for Na’vi clan. The plot is about how the main character, Jake Sully, worked together with the clan to protect their home from humans. In the end, the Na’vi won the battle, and they can stay peacefully in their planet.

The plot of the first movie is quite interesting. So, what about Avatar 2? Actually, there is no official statement about it since the production team keeps it quiet. But, in one of Cameron’s interview, he revealed that they are making up for the ocean ecosystem of Pandora. Some people believe it since the director himself did an exploration in the deep sea long time ago. However, he denied it and added that his exploration has nothing to do with the movie. Moreover, he actually said that it is his scuba diving experience before the exploration that inspires him to the sequel.

Besides the ocean, they will also focus on the rainforest of Pandora. And, the humans will serve, once again, as the antagonists.

The Cast

Both Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana has confirmed that they will return to the movie. Hence, we will see the Na’vi couple, Jake Sully and Neytiri, again. Joel David Moore also has officially signed to come back as the scientist named Norm Spellman.

The unexpected part here is the comeback of Dr. Grace Augustine played by Sigourney Weaver. Most people believe that she was already died in the first movie. Cameron said that the sequel will reveal the truth behind this plot twist. However, the most confusing part is that Weaver actually said that she did come back to the movie but as a different character.

What’s more surprising here is we will also see the revival of the villain, Colonel Miles Quaritch. Played by Stephen Lang, this character was also supposed to be dead due to a couple of arrows shot by Neytiri. This is surely confusing, but we can only wait for the movie to see the truth.

New Technologies

In the first movie, Cameron used 3D technology, and the result is outstanding. Nowadays there have been some more advanced technologies. It is not surprising to see he will use them again in the sequel. And, it is correct as the producer, Jon Landau, stated that the next movie will combine 3D, high frame rates, and 4K Resolution into one package. If this is true, then the movie will have such remarkable image quality.

Those are all the things we can expect from Avatar 2. Unless we wait for its official release, there is nothing much we can say about the movie. The current official release date is in December 18, 2020. It is surely still a long time to go, but hopefully the result is worth for the wait.

Tips on Playing Elite Dangerous in HTC Vive

Have you ever played Elite: Dangerous? It is an adventure game which takes place in outer space. In this game, players are able to explore the entire galaxy by using a spaceship. This game is compatible with PS4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. Since it uses first-person point of view, you can play it with virtual reality devices like HTC Vive. If you do have this device, let us share you some good tips on playing this game. These tips will enable you to play it with a better experience.

1. Manage the 3D Settings


Some games may not have the best graphic in the world, especially when we play them with VR device. This is surely a downside for all gamers. Unfortunately, despite of its success, Elite: Dangerous does have an average graphic quality. But, there is one solution you can take for this issue. You can handle it by managing the settings. One of the settings you need to set up is the 3D settings.

In this part, you have to make sure that you are using HMD headphone in the real setting. After that, you can select VR High setting. This will allow you to change the sampling setting into .65. This process should be an easy task to do. But, if you have problem with this one, then you can download a program that offers easy setting adjustment of render target. You must set the standard by default to 1.0, though.

In order to get a better quality of the visual, you have to ensure that the value must be between 1.5 – 2.0. After you finish the process, do not forget to save the settings. Otherwise, there is a risk that the settings will return to its previous setup. Once you have saved it, you can leave and restart the steam VR application. With this setting process, you will have a better visual quality when playing the game.

2. Upgrade Graphic Card


Since you are using HTC Vive, it usually involves with the use of graphic card. If you really want to have the best experience in playing this game, then the graphic card has to be a powerful one. How to do so? You can do it by simply using the upgraded version. In this case, we recommend you to work with GTX 980. GTX 970 is fine to go with, but it will not provide you an impressive visual fidelity. In addition, the FPS setting is not smooth either. If you are looking the best graphic card, GTX 1070 is the absolute winner.

3. Download VoiceAttack


To get a maximum experience in playing Elite: Dangerous, you will need to download VoiceAttack. It enables you to apply Windows voice or speech recognition. With this feature, you will be able to give some commands to the game by using your voice. Once the on-board AI unit recognizes your voice, the game will do what you have commanded. This surely will take you to a new level of the gameplay.

Those are a few tips on playing Elite Dangerous in HTC Vice you can try. If you have done all the tips above, you will get to enjoy the game even more.

Below, is a game review from youtube, enjoy it!
