Humanoid Service Robots, first time in Jaipur!

Jaipur is renowned for its cultural heritage, magnificent architecture all over the world and the list can go on and on. Many successful startups have sprung out of Jaipur. And yet another venture of Pink City has proved the talent which the city entails. Jaipur’s own company Club First introduced their Humanoid Service Robots Sona .5 and Sona 1.5 on June 16, 2019. The company proudly claims that they are the first to introduce such Robots in India, which does not follow a magnetic-path to reach its destination, and what makes you feel even better is that it is completely manufactured and designed in India itself. The unique feature of both the robots consists of its design, algorithms and it having a human-like spine, which is also first in the world (developed by Neelima Mishra CEO, Club First).

IMG_20190616_195919 copy

Bhuvnesh Mishra, Managing Director says that their journey started in 2013 and from that day there was no turning back. But this journey had its own ups and downs; the biggest challenge was to develop a navigation technology which will facilitate the robot in mapping the location like humans do, in order to reach their destination.

IMG_20190616_194938 copy

Sona .5 and Sona 1.5 though quite similar are different from each other in terms of some minor features like heights and weights. It works in the range of 60 meters and has 2 GB RAM and 8 GB of storage capacity which can be utilized as a mapping storage. The robot use wireless technology and auto-charges itself. It has various types of sensors like vision, ultrasonic, touch, laser and heat helps it adapt to its surroundings, the robots are completely harmless and developed as per the Conformity of European Standards.

IMG_20190616_193505_970 copy

Club First didn’t want to introduce a product that will force the industry to modify their ambiance according to the machine instead they wanted a machine that will adapt to work in any environment. Furthermore, they want that the technological market should not be owned by the foreign developers rather Indians should take initiative and work towards development of the country. Indigenous manufacturing not only adds to the development of the country but also makes replacement feasible. Club First assures you replacement of any parts of the robot. They wish to initiate the introduction of their robots with restaurants as it will provide a better interaction opportunity with the customer, in future they wish to extend their venture for army purpose, disaster management, hospitals as well as offices.

Jaipur Beat appreciates Club First’s initiative and hope they will inspire others to work towards innovative ideas for a brighter future and be welcoming to the change that will come with the new innovative technology.

Jaipur Celebrates Eid-Ul-Fitr!

The moon has already been sighted and the auspicious occasion of Eid that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan is right here. The festivity of Eid-Ul-Fitr in Jaipur is in full swing, and we can smell it in the air. Jaipur is prepped up for Eid with clean houses and already shopped accessories. Eid-Ul-Fitr, also known as ‘Meethi Eid’ is celebrated all around the world by the Muslim community.

Ramganj Market at night

Ramganj is remarkably crowded during the days around Eid. It becomes a flea market during Ramadan. They are decorated like a bride, where shopkeepers entertain the enthusiast shoppers from dusk till dawn. The streets thronged with rozedaars (people who observe fasting) and the shoppers are welcomed right after Iftar and are served till Sehri (Shoor) specially prepared delicacies. The markets are full of hustle bustle throughout the nights as if Jaipur has shifted to a nocturnal schedule for a month. An experience you wouldn’t get anywhere else.

Screen Shot 2019-06-05 at 2.07.23 PM.png

 

Chaand Raat– Chaand Raat or ‘Night of Moon’ confirms that the holy month of fasting has ended. On the supposed last day of Ramadan, people right after iftar get on their roofs/terraces eagerly trying to spot the crescent moon in the deep sky. Sighting of the moon confirms Eid the next day.

The following day celebrations kick starts as the day of Eid-Ul-Fitr when all the Muslims are decked up in special Eid look adorned in best of their dresses and start their day with Eid namaz. Kids receive Eidi. These are gifts given to younger members of a family by their elders, in cash and kinds.

Eid ki Namaz
Jaipur’s Jama Masjid and Eid-Gah along with all other masjids in the pink city host the special namaz. Eid namaz is a mandate on every member of the community – man or woman. Since time immemorial, Eid-Gah hosts the Namaz and other masjids, but very few Jaipurites are aware of the fact that every year Eid, namaz is also done at Ram Niwas Bagh at a small scale, where women have also been attending the prayer for many years now. At Eid Gah where thousands of people pray together is a sight to behold.

8 Cool Escapes To Beat The Heat

Jaipur experience all the season in their extremes. With the temperature being 46 degrees Celsius the heat is unbearable. But we, Jaipurites know how to enjoy the best of both worlds, no matter how extreme it gets. Summers in Jaipur is the warmest times usually extending from April till July. But summer is also that time of the year when we can socialize, unwind and relax cause summertime is vacation time. Most of the schools are on break and colleges are mostly inactive. Therefore, as soon as summer approaches we all start making plans for the vacations, deciding the next spot we want to visit, relishing over all things cool or having a water gun fight with your pals. Ah, summer is fun. But we all know Jaipur can get all heated up during summers and if you staying in the city like us then Jaipur Beat will help you beat this heat with these cool escapes.

1. Pool Parties

A pool party is always a good idea in summers, the best place to chill around with your family and friends. Splashing water all over the place and dancing to your favourite beats. Pink City has quite a few options for all the party-loving Jaipurites.

2. World Trade Park a.k.a my second home

Experiencing an electricity cut, worry not. “World Trade Park hai na yarr…” you can go there chill or hang out with your squad, have food at the court and enjoy the window shopping in the air-conditioned malls for as long as you want.

3. Water Park

Water Parks are an entertaining place to enjoy your break with your family and friends, you can have fun on exciting rides and slides. Pink Pearl is one the most popular water park in Jaipur and even has India’s first water Disco, though in recent times more water parks have come up in the Pink City which means more fun, you can spend your weekends with your family and friends at a water park and relax.

4. Hawa Mahal

OK! So this is one of my favourites from my childhood. Jaipur is known for its heritage all over the world. Thousands of people visit it around the year. Hawa Mahal is the spot you cannot afford to miss be you’re a tourist or a localite. Here’s why, Hawa Mahal’s architectural feature allows cool air from the Venturi effect to pass through, thus making the whole area more pleasant during the high temperatures in summer.

Hawa mahal.jpg

5. Jal Mahal

Talking about heritage with cool escapes, you cannot skip the list without Jal Mahal. Walking past the ‘Paal’ of Jal Mahal is how you want your day to end as it not only furnishes the cool breeze but also provides a picturesque sight.

6. Staying home and lazing around

Since its summer you get a chance to stick to your lazy bed/sofa and play games on your mobiles and laptops as your parents would be scared to send you outside due to the loo. And the best part is you can stay in your pyjamas the whole day, cause no leaving home.

7. Relish over ice cream/cold drinks

Who can say no to ice cream/cold drinks in summers? What are you even talking about, I survive on ice cream/cold drinks in summer.

Ice cream parlours in Jaipur serves many inviting flavours. Jal Mahal Ice Cream Parlor has some refreshing options on their menu that will make your taste buds go gaga with joy.

8. The perfect excuse to run through sprinklers in the garden

Remember when you were a kid and use to play with water balloons, relive those moments, let the child inside you jump out and run through the water sprinklers till you are drenched. It’s one of the best things about summers.
