I am the internet lover, i want to show my uniqueness in my work. And i feel it must be smarter and faster. I want to keep my profile as global as possible like bookmarking my places in Google Maps etc.,. When i visited Sangameshwaram Temple located in foreshore of Srisailam Reservoir i was trying to add this holy temple of Lord Shiva in My Tourist Places in Google Maps using my Nokia C5-03 Smart Phone. But there is neither GPS nor Internet Connectivity available. Transportation to this remote area is nill, even you can't find local transportation like auto-rickshaw. I was blaming the technology about the hurdle to access the Internet in Internet-deserted places like deep forests, and remote villages the one like this
Can we Access Internet in Forest Area.
In June 2013 i heard about a project, whose main goal is to bring Internet to all the people across the globe. It must be accessible by nature lover when travelling in Amazon Forest, a software engineer in India stayed at his Grate-Grand-Mother's home located in a poor village.
This project name is Project Loon started by the Google Inc.,. A small group of Project Loon pioneers will start the experiment in Christchurch, one of the largest cities in South Island of New Zealand. If you are living in New Zealand and willing to put your hand together as a Project Loon pilot tester in the upcoming test launches Register Your Internet for becoming a Project Loon pilot tester.
Why Google named Loon for this Project
In this project Google has experimented with Balloons so given as Loons. As per dictionary Loon means a "silly or foolish person" and google is doing this silly project with balloons so gave this name as per my assumption. I hope this will succeed.
What are used in this technology
As i told you above balloons are being used in this project these are not simple balloons but they are Wi-Fi balloons. They travel in the Stratosphere around the Earth about 20 km above. As per Google survey Winds in the stratosphere moves slowly at between 5 to 20 mph. A Software algorithms is using to set the location of balloon where it needs to move. They uses the antennas to communicate balloon-to-balloon and balloon-to-ground by giving connectivity from the ground area about 40 km diameter at speed comparable to 3G.
Here are some of the online information about Project Loon. The team has started a Google+ Page about the project updates. Mr. Mike Cassidy, Project Leader has written an article in Googles Offical Blog, even it has been registered in Facebook and finally Official Website of the Project Loon.
Lets hope this masterpiece will succeed and will transform Internet from the tradition stage to the next level - Project Loon.
