Presenting the treadmill, that generates electricity

Why waste electricity to make a person to run, when running man, on the contrary, can generate electricity?

That was what we asked ourselves, and in association with well-known developer of sporting goods and an Asian fund had began to create a fundamentally new treadmill that produces electricity, and does not need it.
With the treadmill RoboMill you can charge a mobile phone or other devices. It can power the small screen, or your tablet for entertainment while running.

Animated image.

Also 2 fans are integrated in the device that are powered by a runner too. Besides the obvious advantages of electricity generation, the treadmill also has a futuristic, a completely new design in a glossy white color, similar to the modern electric car. Also, due to the construction, a great advantage is that the user will constantly run up and forward, and this model is more realistic than ordinary treadmills give, where the athlete running on the spot, which is less like a real jog, and the effectiveness of such exercises is low.
Now imagine that you can equip a gym with variety of exercise machines, that produce energy that completely provides the gym, including lighting.

How this app accidentally saved lives of hundreds of Australians

2 years ago we have released a simple application without any design. To create SMS templates with preset addresses and text, laying them on the desktop as a widget. And sending messages in 1 or 2 clicks. We just came up with the daily routine for the same messages: "I'm home", "I on my way", "Good Morning" and so on. We didn't consider this app outstanding.

After a while the users opened the possibility of using it a completely different: they began using these templates to start their cars remotely and even turning on boilers in the smart houses.

A year ago (March 23, 2014) we have received the following letter:

"Hi, your sms template app is really good and as a firefighter, I am going to use it to alert the rest of my brigade when we get a callout, as not everyone has a pager. There is one feature that I would like to have that I do not think this app has (I'm not sure if it is even possible) ... 
Jacob"
(followed by questions and tips).

A year later we wrote to him, asking if he began to use the application to extinguish fires. And he replied "yes":

"Hi,

Yes I use it in firefighting to alert other firefighters in our brigade that there is an incident callout for the brigade.


Once I am informed (by phone call or pager) that my brigade is being called to an incident (fire or car accident etc) I use your app to inform all the brigade members that we have a callout. I do not give any specific information - I just use a group template I have set up. It just says "#CALLOUT#" and I send it using a shortcut / widget with your two-click option.


All the members have an app called "Fire Alert 2" on their phones, which uses "#CALLOUT#" as the trigger to sound an alarm on their phone and displays the message regardless of whether the phone is in silent mode or not.


It works really well as a quick (less than 5 seconds) method for me to alert others before I leave myself ... " (and so on)


Then we decided to find out where he lives and to ask a few more questions. And the main thing that was interesting: as far as this our application is only for Android. Is it possible that all Australians use only Android (it turned out - yes)?

Here are the questions and answers.

1. What city and country are you from?

Burringbar, New South Wales, Australia.

2. Why you use non-professional app for your job? Is there professional apps?

The official dispatch service does not use sms / apps at all. It uses pagers and phone calls to the Captain. These pagers are not issued to everyone (especially new members) as they are expensive. Also in our area, we have a lot of trouble with pager reception, which operate on a fire Brigade tower network. The Sms app is very useful to both members without a pager and as a backup to members with a pager.

3. Do you have and are you involved in a regular firefighting team?

Yes. It is a Volunteer Brigade, with about 10 active members. When there is a callout, all of these members are alerted and whoever is available at the time responds to the incident.

5. How come, that all firefighters have Android phones?

Android is now the most common phone OS in Australia. There is one other member who sends out the alerts like I do with your app and we both have android phones. The rest of the members have android or iPhones, and the receiving app (fire alert 2) is available on both android and iPhone.

In the last letter we thanked him for the use of our program, saying that saving lives adds more meaning to our work.

Как российское приложение спасло жизни сотням австралийцев

2 года назад мы выпустили простое приложение, без всякого дизайна. Для создания шаблонов SMS с предустановленными адресами и текстом, выкладки их на рабочий стол виджетом. И отправки сообщений в 1 клик. Мы это придумали просто для рутинных ежедневных одинаковых сообщений: "Я дома", "Скоро буду", "Приехал", "Доброе утро" и так далее. Мы не считали его выдающимся.

Через некоторое время пользователи открыли совершенно другие возможности использования: они стали с помощью этих шаблонов дистанционно заводить машины и даже запускать отопление в умных домах.

А год назад (23 марта 2014) от некоего Джейкоба пришло такое письмо:

"Привет, ваше приложение подходит для пожарных. Я собираюсь использовать его для сбора пожарной команды, так как не у всех есть пейджеры..."

"Hi, your sms template app is really good and as a firefighter, I am going to use it to alert the rest of my brigade when we get a callout, as not everyone has a pager. There is one feature that I would like to have that I don't think this app has (I'm not sure if it is even possible)..." (далее следуют советы и вопросы).

Мы внесли требуемые исправления. На днях мы написали ему, спросив, начал ли он использовать приложение для тушения пожаров. И он ответил, что использует (перевод в Google.Translate):

"Hi,

Yes I use it in firefighting to alert other firefighters in our brigade that there is an incident callout for the brigade.


Once I am informed (by phone call or pager) that my brigade is being called to an incident (fire or car accident etc) I use your app to inform all the brigade members that we have a callout.

It works really well as a quick (less than 5 seconds) method for me to alert others before I leave myself..." (письмо длинное)


Тогда мы решили узнать, откуда он, ещё задали несколько вопросов. А главное, что было интересно: ведь наше приложение только на Android. Неужели у всех австралийцев Android (оказалось - да)?

Здесь приводится вопрос и ответ без перевода  (перевод в Google.Translate).

1. What city and country are you from?

Burringbar, New South Wales, Australia.

2. Why you use non-professional app for your job? Is there professional apps?

The official dispatch service does not use sms/apps at all. It uses pagers and phone calls to the Captain. These pagers are not issued to everyone (especially new members) as they are expensive.

В последнем письме мы его поблагодарили за использование нашей программы, сказав, что спасение жизней добавляет гораздо больше смысла нашему делу.

All features of Kuku Messenger (email client)

Full specifications of Kuku Messenger at this point. All advantages, similarities and differences from the standard messenger, cons and future plans. Everything about the advantages of its decentralized, as well as an emphasis on privacy and anonymity.
This list is created for future users, and existing, who may not know all the possibilities of the application.

Kuku: decentralized, anonymous messenger

Video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bbffSzChlE
Link to Google.Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=madscale.messenger.kuku

Decentralized.

1. The messenger can not be blocked by the government. As you know, many messengers are not available in many countries around the world: China, Saudi Arabia, Iran and so on. Whatsapp, Hangouts, and so on. In Russia, from September 1, a new law about personal data that can potentially prohibit existing messengers.
2. Messenger can not "fall", as it often happens to the Instagram, Facebook, VK, Telegram.
3. The messenger can not be hit by DDOS attacks, as it happens to the Telegram.
4. Hackers can not get mass of correspondence or user data. As it happened to Telegram lately. Because there is no single server.
5. Kuku can exist without the authors. Because there is no single server. It's really people's messenger.

Data security and privacy.

1. The option "delete all" provide deleting in one-click all messages and account from your phone, including photos, and user data and the folder of the messenger. So even the shade of existence of an account in the phone can not be detected. That is, if someone will gather data recovery on Whatsapp, it's enough to know the phone number, unlike the Kuku. There is no another messenger, which can provide it.
2. The option "Do not save messages" allows you to instantly remove them from the cloud (except of GMAIL), so hackers getting access to the server will not find correspondence there. Thus, no reason or advantage of breaking server of specific user. In this case, hacking of correspondence, photographs, personal data is not possible.
3. Special services can not massively wiretapping users. There is no another messenger, which can provide it.
4. The messenger is anonymous and not tied to the SIM card. If your account is compromised, you can instantly create a new and massively notify your contacts about it.
5. Your account can be placed in any country, which is important if in your country there is any censorship or monitoring of correspondence. For example, there are 2 phones nearby in the demonstration video. They instantly receive messages from each other, but one account is registered in India and another in Ecuador.
6. If you do not want to give someone your phone number, then for the correspondence can be given an account in Kuku, which is not tied to the SIM card. You can also create a temporary account to correspond some time with someone, and after that do not use it more. So not to be bothered by that someone.
7. Only current members can invite another members in the decentralized group chat.
8. For screenshot with funny correspondence (to upload it in the social network) you can hide the name of the addressee by simply clicking on it.
9. Anonymous registration (if needed).

Features that are not invented in the ordinary messenger.

1. You can set the interval (night) mode of silence, in which the messages are not downloaded at all, or are downloaded every hour.
2. It can be programmed to receive messages only via wi-fi (to keep the traffic).
3. If for any reason there is no network, written messages are queued and sent automatically when the network becomes available. The user does not need to worry about it. Whatsapp, for example, simply notifies that the message has not been sent, and it has to be sent again manually.
4. There is integrated scheduler for messages. User can schedule sending at any time with any frequency. For example, for to program congratulations on your friends birthday once year for 10 years in a row.
5. All incoming and outgoing messages are synchronized on all devices with a single user account. For example, writing through tablet, when the phone is charging. In a telephone version appears the same outgoing and incoming messages. At the same time, messenger still has no single server.
6. The messenger is not tied to the SIM card. When the SIM is changed in the journey to the touristic one, the user should not change anything in the settings of the app.
7. The messenger is not tied to the SIM card, so it can be used with devices that do not have a SIM card. Also on phones with different numbers (SIM cards), you can use a single account.
8. Sending and receiving messeges can be provided without having the application: from any browser on any computer.
9. Kuku Messenger physically can not get spam, as often happens to WhatsApp and others.
10. User of Kuku Messenger can write to any email to people who do not have this messenger, and receive their answers.
11. A long press to the "send" button sends a message "Kuku" - just to remind about yourself.
12. Kuku and the whole style of the application is a cheerful, positive, good meme: "Kuku me."
13. User support online chat is pre-installed inside the messenger.
14. App weighs 3 times less than Whatsapp, so easy to install on old phones with small memory. Whatsapp somehow prohibits copy itself to the SD card and phone with an internal memory of 500 MB can not provide it.
15. Ability to save a backup of correspondence on the memory card automatically or manually.

Group chats.

1. Unique group chats on a decentralized basis.
2. Only active members can add new users, keeping thus the privacy of their correspondence.
3. Kuku Friends chat is preinstalled in the app too. Immediately after loading the user can add there his friends and start to chat with them.

Proximity to the usual standard messenger.

1. Standard familiar interface, cute eco-design.
2. Possibilities of attaching photos, any files, user has the opportunity to make a selfie directly from the application and to send it.
3. The ability to create an avatar and username. Both will appear in all the interlocutors apps.
4. Messages are delivered instantly via push-notification service. This is a unique system: pushs go through a single server, but they do not contain any information after receiving the message, push is immediately deleted from the server. And the messages themselves are decentralized.
5. Group chats.
6. Emoticons.
7. Easily search by keyword in all messages.
8. The "black list".
9. Selecting the sound of incoming / outgoing messages, select the silent mode.
10. Confirmation of sending the message: sound and tick.
11. The interface translated into 15 languages.
12. Standard inviting your friends to the app.
13. The app is free and contains no advertising.
14. Registration (if desired) of a new account from the messenger itself at the first window.
15. Mark messages as read or deleted: all, some, or one.
16. Delete the text from the dialogue, or copy, or forward.

Our plans:

1. Version for iOS - 2-3 months.
2. Incomig and outgoing voice messages without touching the phone. In fact - it will be possible to talk with someone via voice messages while driving, cooking a meal or in the bathroom.
3. Optional password to the messenger.
4. Chat with the robot, which is built-in messenger. User can to text him or to talk to him (via voice option). That is, if the user is bored, and there is no one to correspond to.
5. Skins and other design related.
6. The possibility to set a lot of accounts on one device at a time.


Cons of Kuku messenger.

1. User can not call via Kuku.
2. If the push-notification service to fall (which sends them separately from the messages), messages in Android will come to slow down (5 minutes), and iOS - only when the application is open.
3. There is no iOS version, but it is on its way.

How does it work?

User account is any email from any country. In fact - Kuku is the mail client, but reinterpreted with all the advantages of instant messenger: no message subjects, there is no folder, and there are the usual dialog windows and dialogs list. Correspondence is not heavy, but easy like in standart messengers, the messages are received in real time. Kuku Messenger recognizes messages sent from another Kuku Messenger and downloads only them, ignoring the rest of the mail (and spam, respectively), and distribut messages in dialogues by contacts. Thus, it is possible to use a single account for Kuku and for regular mail correspondence, and they will not overlap because Kuku automatically creates on your mail server two folders: Kukuinbox and Kukusent, and incoming and outgoing messages for Kuku puts in these folders automatically.
At the same time, a completely different service sends push notification. This service does not include any data and information itself. Pushs are removed after delivery of the message. Thus, we have an unique dual system of sending messages: Message goes separately decentralized and push goes separately centralized. If the push server fails, the message will still be delivered, but a little slow.

As soon as the account is email on any server that can work with mail clients, we achieve the following:

1. Storing information in another country. For example, free indian mail server - india.com or Ecuador - terra.com (the government of any country, not loving freedom, can block terra.com or India.com, but it is easy to change the account and it is impossible to block all email servers, if not completely turn off the Internet. And it is unlikely that someone will block unknown Ecuadorian mail server, which is used by 100 people, right?). These 2 servers are tested while creating the app. User living in a nearby street can be instantly in touch with another user through Ecuador or India, which complicates the possible persecution. Thus, the server is not single, but each user has his own one, anywhere in the world. We provide a list of free email servers from all over the world, and there is also such cunning, where the server itself removes the account after 10 minutes after its creation. Not all mail servers work with email clients. For example, the Czech atlas.cz does not work with our application, but such is a minority.
2. The list of free mail servers around the world, divided by region and country: http://www.fepg.net/americas.html.
Another list: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/426309-list-100-free-email-services.html.
Another list. There is such an exotic server that removes the account in 10 minutes after creation: http://www.freebyte.com/email/
3. Account is not tied to the phone number
4. The ability to instantly change your account.
5. It is possible to correspond with someone who does not even has Kuku and a phone, and he will read the messages in the browser or other client to respond to you from a browser.
6. Anonymous account.
7. The ability to answer from any PC without special software, and through the web interface of mail server.

You can use your existing email account, but we recommend to just spend 5 minutes to create a new, but Kuku messages do not overlap with the regular mail. However, the application can be configured to delete Kuku messages as they are received, so they do not interfere with the normal use of the mail. But this will exclude ability to synchronize messages with another device if there is the same account.
