Indic-En, a Browser Extension to Convert Indian Language Websites to English Script

This is certainly not an April Fool and doesn't involve a rickroll. :P 😝 Introducing Indic-En, a browser extension to convert websites in Indian languages (Malayalam, Hindi, Kannada) to Manglish, Hinglish & Kanglish. This is the first WebExtension that I've made. This extension will be useful for people who can understand the language, but can't read it (read the script). I've also made a similar Android app "Manglish" which does this, but only for the Malayalam language.... [READ MORE]

If you're reading this, you probably got rickrolled by me ;) 😉... [READ MORE]

Making Piano Stairs With Raspberry Pi and Ultrasonic sensors

We made a stair into a Piano ! It was our college tech fest and we needed something cool to showcase, something audience can interact with and have fun ! Piano Stairs sounded like a cool idea, but implementing it was a challenge. I'm a 3rd year B.Tech CS engineering student now and this is my first time hacking with hardware. So I didn't know much. I was joined by my juniors, Muhammed Hashim and Athul Raj, both in their 2nd year of CS engineering.... [READ MORE]

KDE India Conf 2020

I attended my first KDE India conf ! conf.kde.in 2020 happened in Maharaja Agrasen Institute of Technology, Delhi during January 17-19, 2020.

Curse Words

I have an interesting story of how I learnt & used a curse word. Myru In Malayalam, a main curse word is "myru" which translates to "pubic hair". In Tamil, it simply means "hair". You can just go to a barber shop and say "annaa, cut my myru", but in Malayalam this sentence is hilarious 🤣. When you refer the word to someone, it becomes "myre". It's like calling someone bro, but in the worst way possible :... [READ MORE]

InstaLV - Live Stream To Instagram From Computer

Instagram allows you to livestream from the phone only. And that too from the camera which means you can't add extra effects, overlays or cool stuff like that. If you could livestream from the computer, you can customize the livestream video as you like. Similar to livestreams on YouTube or Twitch. I was bored and was thinking of cool projects to do. I just got into Instagram and was checking it out.... [READ MORE]
