1. AR/VR: Future trends
Augmented Reality (AR) may not be as exciting as a virtual reality roller coaster ride, however the technology is proving itself as a really great tool in our everyday lives. From social media filters, to surgical procedures, AR is apace growing in quality as a result of it brings parts of the virtual world, into our universe, therefore enhancing the items we tend to see, hear, and feel. compared to different reality technologies, increased reality lies within the middle of the mixed reality spectrum; between the real world and also the virtual world. You'll probably ne'er move to Mars, swim with dolphins, run AN Olympic one hundred meters, or sing onstage with the Rolling Stones. however if computer game ever lives up to its promise, you would possibly be able to do of these things—and several more—without even going away your home. Unlike real reality (the actual world in which we live), virtual reality means simulating bits of our world (or completely imaginary worlds) using high-performance computers and sensory equipment, like headsets and gloves. Apart from games and entertainment, it's long been used for training airline pilots and surgeons and for helping scientists to figure out complex problems such as the structure of protein molecules.

2. Mobile phone guide to study abroad
The transition from being a dependent student to an independent individual is not an easy one. Life can get extremely challenging when you move away from the comfort of your home to another country. A new country means a new life and a new approach to solving day to day problems. Putting the pieces of the puzzle together and starting from the scratch, the first three to four months will pass in a blink of an eye. Thus to reduce this difficulty of starting from a scratch we present an android application which will provide you with the list of universities most relevant to your profile.

3. Strength characteristics of recycled concrete aggregate with addition of steel fibres
We know construction activities demand a significant amount of natural materials in order to produce cement and aggregate. Procurement of these natural materials significantly modifies the natural sources and creates major environmental problems. . Furthermore, sustainable waste management is another major issue faced by countries all over the world. In order to minimize the environmental impact and energy consistency of concrete used for construction facilities, reuse of construction and demolition wastes can be a beneficial way which leads to sustainable engineering approaches to concrete mix design. The recycled concrete aggregate have some properties like the natural aggregates but the strength is less than the natural aggregates. So the strength of concrete made, recycled concrete aggregates is enhanced by addition of some additives. In this study steel fibres are added in concrete with recycled concrete to increase the workability of the concrete at same water cement ratio, in addition to increase in compressive, tensile & flexural strength of the concrete. Keywords:- Recycle Concrete Aggregate, Steel Fibre, Compressive Strength, Split Tensile Strength, Flexural Strength.
