I dropped a shampoo bottle. So, what is so great about that you may well wonder?
I usually need to grope for it but this, time I tried the vOICe using the mobile phone.
I tried without using the hands free kit of the phone since I was too lazy to take it out of my laptop bag. I had to increase the volume to 4 and set the channels to stereo.
I pointed the phone camera downwards and the fun began. I had to first determine what the floor looked like. Then, finding the bottle was tricky because of it’s shape. I was hoping a difference in texture will help but the bottle is smooth and so is the floor. What gave the position of the bottle away was the difference in curvature.
I will need to do more experiments to make this into a regular thing but now; I at least have an alternative to groping for stuff dropped on the floor. It’s far nicer moving a phone around than feeling with the feet or the hands for said item.
Peter suggests that I use the inverse video option to make the bottle easier to identify. I plan to try that next time.
