An Indian-origin inventor has created a voice controlled terrarium that can simulate weather conditions around the world inside a box as part of Google’s “experimental project”.

“Project Oasis” brings nature and technology together and lets users interact with them using voice. It can mimic rain, fog, clouds as well as sunshine.

“Project Oasis is a self-sustaining plant ecosystem that reflects outside weather patterns by creating clouds, rain and light inside a box,” read the project’s description on its website.

“You can talk to it to ask about weather or ask it to create certain conditions. It currently recreates rain, clouds and lighting in a self sufficient closed and living ecosystem,” said Harpreet Sareen, the inventor of the project, in a video posted on the website.

Made with Google’s tools such as Dialogflow and Cloud Pub/Sub, at the Google Creative Lab, “Project Oasis is self sufficient, closed ecosystem and a simple experiment to expand human conversation with technology and the natural world”, said Sareen.

Google Play on Wear OS is slightly better now as the tech giant has given it a design facelift with some refreshing tweaks.

Wear OS or Wear OS by Google, which was previously known as Android Wear has been given a new design as Google attempts to improve it.

Spotted on Reddit and by one of our tipsters, Google appears to have widely rolled out a Play Store update for all Wear OS users. At first glance, it’s not a radical redesign, but it makes a lot of changes for the better.

First, it ditches the pull-down menu that’s been very annoying for quite some time. In the previous design, the menu indicator often covered the search button, 9to5Google reported on Wednesday.

Wear OS users may be able to spot the differences, where they now have My Apps, Accounts, and Settings sections at the bottom of the main page, rather than within a hidden pulldown menu.

The rest of the Play Store for Wear OS doesn’t appear to have changed much. App listings, for example, are basically unchanged, but I think they now have a darker background, the report added. (IANS)
