Google has recently announced that this year in 2019, it is going to launch the cloud-based game streaming service called Stadia. Google has not yet given any confirmation about Stadia’s date of release but, most probably the launch date is speculated to be in the second half of 2019. The launching of this cloud-based gaming platform is going to change the game of the entire video game industry which has been there for decades.
What is Stadia streaming service?
From so many years individuals have faced the issue in buying expensive game consoles, spending too much time on the hardware setup and download. But very soon Stadia is going to eliminate such issues by letting users play directly on the internet.
Stadia streaming service will allow all users to enjoy console games without any expensive gaming console, heavy GPU or complicated downloading process by just connecting to wifi. The users only need to have Chrome browser and internet connections to select their desired console game and play it instantly in all platforms like Laptops, Smartphones, Pcs. Smart TVs and tablets. The service is pretty much like Netflix and also will be having special Youtube features.
The big announcement of Stadia-gaming-platform was made by Sunder Pichai recently at the Annual Development Gaming Conference in San Francisco.
The cloud-based streaming service is expected to have gaming tricks that will easily allow users to switch devices and also share the current state of the game with users across the world.
Working Principle of Stadia
The cloud-based gaming platform- Stadia, is going to be an easy online gaming experience with a few sets of requirements met by the user.
- Strong and fast internet connection
- Reliable Internet connection
- The desktop version of Chrome browser
- At, first users need to select the game they want to play either from the Stadia website or even from any game link in Youtube.
- Before Google lets you play the game, it is going to analyze your Internet connection and latency to give you high-end gaming experience. Here Google will not be connecting to your device to stream the game; rather it will be connecting to your Wifi used in the device.
- As per Google’s cloud connection specifications, the streaming rate should be minimum 15Mbps, latency rate should be below 40ms and data loss should not be more than 5%. If the above sets of requirements are met, you will be immediately directed to the online playing interface instantly.
All inputs given by the gamers will be processed by Google’s server displaying the instant action. For the PC and laptop users, Keyboard and mouse are fine for the inputs; while mobile and tablet users need to go for controllers.
The hardware Specifications of Stadia Streaming Service
As per the recent details covered, the hardware of this device will be utilizing custom X86 Intel CPU of 2.7 GHz and a high-end GPU in association with AMD but, the detailed specification has not been declared yet. The RAM capacity will be mostly 16GB with up to 484 GB/s transfer while the graphics silicon chip will be having an output power of 10.7 teraflops along with 56 compute units and HBM2 memory already outrunning PS4 Pro and Xbox One X who have an output power of 4.7 teraflops and 6 teraflops respectively.
In the initial level as announced by Google, Stadia will be having 4K resolution@60 fps with high-end surrounding sound and HDR while gradually Google’s plan is to make the performance level as 8k @120ps in the near future.
Stadia’s Collaboration with Youtube
Youtube is already a major video streaming platform used by users to view different video contents. If gaming video contents views are to calculated approximately 50 billion hours have been spent on Youtube by users across the world for gaming. Hence Google will be joining Stadia with Youtube which will allow users to capture and share the game contents straight to Youtube from the gaming platform. This will be possible with the Crowd Play feature of Stadia that will not only allow other users to view the game content of the creator but also play a hand on with them instantly.
Every great invention faces fierce competition. Same goes for Google’s Stadia. After it gets launched in the market, it is expected to have tough competition with Microsoft’s xCloud game streaming service which streams Xbox games to mobiles devices, consoles, and Pcs and is also a recently launched product.
Another biggest competitor will be Amazon which is also in the same route for creating a cloud-based gaming service.
Other competitors are expected to be Nvidia, Sony already having online game streaming service and also Valve which is developing its Steam Link into a cloud-based game service.
So basically Google’s Stadia is going to face a tough competition with all of these brands in the near future.
As per the recent details shared by Google about Stadia, it is going to be the coolest gaming experience ever eliminating the year’s long consoles. Also, its association with the Youtube world is going to revolutionize the gaming entertainment in upcoming years.

The additive manufacturing capabilities of 3D printers are getting more is more important in the industrial world. The process which involves of use of digital 3D design data to deposit materials to build a product prototype or part. Additive manufacturing technologies vary in the techniques used for creating and bonding layers together, speed, layer thickness, the range of materials, accuracy, and cost.
With the globally rising competition in the manufacturing industry, it is crucial for manufacturers to get familiar with the 3D printing methods and processes. 3D printing refers to all the aspects in additive manufacturing, though it is universally regarded as the process of fabricating objects with the addition of layers using a print head, nozzle, and other printing technologies. Nowadays, top manufacturing companies are utilizing 3D printer in the environments along with several other Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Cloud technologies. The manufacturing industry defines 3D printing as an additive manufacturing technology for making objects from 3D objects.
What is Additive Manufacturing?
Additive manufacturing technology which has been around for more than 30 years is often regarded by the manufacturers for its faster processing capability of 3D printing. BMW, the top car manufacturers company has been utilizing additive manufacturing since 1990 for manufacturing various parts for the manufacturing process. Additive manufacturing involves different other forms of additive manufacturing such as rapid prototyping direct digital manufacturing which are all of equal importance in various manufacturing industries. Latest advancements in 3D printer technologies have impacted exciting opportunities for future development in the product manufacturing process.
How 3D Printing Works
In contrast to the subtractive manufacturing in which end product will be made by taking material away, additive manufacturing technology adds layers to the build platform in order to create objects. In the traditional manufacturing process product prototyping involved of a material being shaped into the product envisioned by designers. Additive manufacturing does this in the opposite way by adding thousands of minute layers to form the final product. Additive manufacturing system needs just a computer and special CAD software which can send messages to the printer to enable precise and accurate printing.
Many manufacturers are approaching 3D printing in Mumbai for building prototypes, parts, and models of different material. There is additive manufacturing equipment available which can print with more than 40 different materials thus giving more flexibility and efficiency in product manufacturing lifecycle. The cartridge of these 3D printers can be loaded with desired material so that it gets printed into several uniform layers to form the desired shape and design. It prints several layers repeatedly and fuses together during the process for getting the shape complete.
Benefits for the Manufacturing Industry
Predominantly manufacturers were able to build several shapes and designs through conventional prototyping methods, but by adopting additive manufacturing in their environments enabled them to take the next level in product design and manufacturing. With this, a more advanced rapid prototyping technology, organizations in various industries are able to produce product parts, prototypes or concept models in whatever shape or design the need. This technology has been helped manufacturers and designers to obtain even the most complex designs that were impossible in the conventional means.
This advantage of additive manufacturing enables for stronger 3D objects that have no weak spots and cannot be compromised or stressed. In rapid prototyping, models are quickly built thus giving companies better flexibility in the product design and for reducing time and cost. The additive manufacturing process is comparative faster, other than the time taken by stakeholders, engineers, designers or manufacturers to decide and finalize on the product/concept design. Any changes can be made on the 3D design on the CAD software with a few clicks of the mouse.
The 3D printer enabled additive manufacturing processes commonly involve of a direct interaction of powdered material with a laser beam. The absorption capability of the powdered material is significantly important for the development of 3D objects. It enables manufacturers to choose the right technology that responds to the powder even with insufficient laser energy input or material evaporation due to excessive energy input.
In the traditional method, there have been several production limitations that affected the design. Product designers had to ignore several innovative design ideas as its production wasn’t practical. With the introduction of this technology, several manufacturers, especially in the field of aerospace, automotive and healthcare devices, enable the design to drive their production.
