Introduction

Engineering Calculator VOLTA-2012 is implemented as HTML 5 web application project that adheres to software paradigm of separation of programming concerns, namely:

  • Content: HTML5
  • Presentation: CSS3
  • Functionality: Javascript/jQuery

Entire project is encapsulated in a single text file with extremely small digital footprint (less than 10kB). It does not require any graphic files, like .jpg or .png, etc. All aesthetic enhancements, like: rounded corners, color gradients, borders and shadows are achieved exclusively via CSS3 styling, thus resulting in small application footprint and very fast web page load.

Ultrabook features 

  • Tilt Sensor: to switch between portrait/landscape screen layout (TBD) 
  • Touch screen 
  • Geo-location data to query the Power Mains database (TBD)

Proposed solution should be able to run in Desktop/Metro modes .
