Getting started with Intel’s Movidius Stick

INTRODUCTION I got my hands on an Intel NCS (Neural Compute Stick) some weeks back and had been experiencing issues while trying to install and run the SDK. I decided to do this over the weekend, assuming it might take an entire day to actually making it run. Luckily, I was done with the setup…

Journey to Stockholm – The TL;DR Version

I was elated when I found out, during the last week of April, that the team I was mentoring (Team TL;DR, an abbreviation for Too Long Didn’t Read) had made it to the final 4 in the world, and would be representing India at the Ericsson Innovation Awards 2018. The months of effort leading up…

Laat Saab

A new addition to the family dining segment with a very interesting decor pretty much sums up Laat Saab. Starting from their outdoor seating of vibrant colored Rickshaws to the two guns hanging inside the restaurant, a visit to this place, certainly makes one forget this place is actually located inside a mall. We had…

The Amazing ThickShake Factory

After the late morning breakfast at Lenoia, followed by the 1.5 hours journey back to the city, none of us were hungry to eat anything. So on my cousin’s suggestion we decided to visit the Amazing ThickShake Factory, which was conveniently located nearby. We decided to order the following – Ferrero Hazelnut Thick Shake, Very…

Starting from the soups to the desserts, the chef at MIP ensured there was never a drop in quality or…

Xiian 2.0: Handiwala

When I found out about Handiwala and the fact this place was actually renovated by the people who owned Xiian, I expected more of a lounge type ambiance mainly serving drinks and hookah, but to my surprise,I was presented with more of a family oriented layout and menu. Reopened as Handiwala on 1st Feb, the…

Flip Cafe

So I ordered from FLIP Cafe a couple of days back. Initially my order was Popeye’s Favorite, Penne Mix Cream, Cheesy Fries + Chicken with Sweet Chill Garlic Honey. However, I later found out from the owner that they had discontinued Popeye’s Favorite. This for me was a huge gesture by the owner to call…

Biryani Blues is now in Lajpat Nagar!

What happens when you’re with a friend who wants to have one dish, while you want to have another, and both are on a tight budget? Compromise, right? Well luckily for us, Biryani Blues has this concept of Non Veg meal for one, wherein we could order Mutton Biryani, Salan, Curd and Chicken Nazami, and…
