technology and thanksgiving

Technology Away, and a Happy Thanksgiving!

It is rare that a technology-driven company will advocate that you set your gadgets aside. But then again, DAS Solutions is not your average tech company. On this important holiday in the lives of all our American friends, that is exactly what we encourage you to do: leave your technology aside and have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!

Sharing the joy of family gatherings during such special occasions is important to us. They remind us that giving thanks to the people we care about is what defines us as human beings, especially during such difficult times of mistrust around the world. Technology is often a catalyst to that mistrust, as it can create a wall of communication with close ones instead of facilitating it.

While we strive to become better and more successful in our own lives and within our companies, we must reward ourselves with some time to sit down with our families and friends and talk to each other. No matter how much ambition we have or how much effort we put into our work, it is important to remember that nothing is possible if you are in it alone, whether you are a technology-driven company or not. You need trustworthy people alongside you to share that vision, and to steer you in the right direction when necessary.

We share ideas with our partners to help them reach their full potential, or in order to deliver that sought-after IT tool that will help them grow their companies. We find ways to solve the problems they find in their business processes that no one else was able to. We explore various technologies to minimize the effort that firms in any field make on a daily basis to reach a target. Finally, we deliver what we are certain are the best and most robust IT solutions that technology can offer.

While we are located in another time zone, it is technology that helps us bridge that geographical gap to reach out to some outstanding individuals with the capacity to change us in a fundamental way. We are astounded by the depth and breadth of our partners’ visions and we learn something from them every day. We acknowledge them. We appreciate that technology can bring you to us and our services to you. But we want you to forget about technology for one long Thanksgiving weekend. We thank you for being with us.

High-Tech Halloween

High-Tech Halloween and How Technology Can Make Things Scarier

High-tech makes Halloween scarier than ever before. Nowadays there is an app for everything, and when it comes to Halloween, they range from keeping your kids safe to scaring the pants off of your colleagues and friends.

There are apps for chatting with your family and apps for keeping track of your family members’ locations. Parents these days can set boundary limits on where their kids are allowed to go and can get notified if they go too far (and no worries about cheating, kids will never leave their smartphones anywhere!). In terms of high-tech Halloween, it is a good way to keep track of where your little ghost went.

This year Google launched frightgeist a website that helps people find the most popular costumes. Also, the website suggests less popular characters so that one has a chance to be exceptional at a costume party.

Morph Suits has acquired Digital Dudz, a manufacturer of ingenious “high-tech” costumes. Their high-tech Halloween costumes  must be worn along with a smartphone and an installed app for the projection of scary and realistic animations, such as the twitching eyeball. This high-tech Halloween outfit idea has changed the Halloween costumes industry.

Creating high-tech Halloween costumes using fiber optic also went viral in the last few years. People use fiber optic to design dresses, wings, leggings, Iron Man outfits and more.

There are spooky Halloween-themed animations that can be projected on the window or TV. In combination with wireless speakers and laser pumpkins the atmosphere around your house or office can be spine-chilling.

All in all, technology widens possibilities and scarring becomes more sophisticated while costumes turn out to be more realistic. A devoted and creative team of software developers can help you bring your idea to life (*wink*). DAS Solutions wishes you a spooky high-tech Halloween!
