If you don’t mind your kids getting their hands on an iPad 2, then consider this latest from Crayola. It’s a hefty case that allows the younglings to mess around with their artistic potential on a tablet. The Trace and Draw is also a serious iPad accessory that lets the holder interact with the iPad like never before. More details after the jump.
Uh-oh. Mentioning that it’s a ‘competitor’ in the title of this post may have jinxed WireDoo. WireDoo? It’s MC Hammer’s search engine. Well, not exactly his, but him and a select team spent the better part of two years creating a search engine that differs. Now it’s at pre-beta and on the verge of a massive (we hope) debut.
With unemployment at record levels, it’s great to hear menial jobs are now destined for robots. Cheeky statements aside, there’s absolutely no photo evidence available of these so-called strawberry pickers. So in absence of such material, let a stand in suffice for now.
Yes, that’s a box of Altoids. Rather, boxes of Altoids. Apparently, if left to his own devices Jair2k4 is fully capable of surviving the post-apocalypse. Check out the incredible home-made Tazer gloves he assembled after a conversation about superhero powers. Now if he only built himself a laser pistol. Alas, that is for fate to decide.
So, right, it hangs on a wall. That, and it’s really innovative. Then again, that’s what all concepts aspire for. Anyway, the strangely named Black Luk is a wall-mounted coffee maker with an embedded cup. See the picture below to discern its use.
Ah, robotics. If it were only sexier. That’s pretty much the biggest hurdle of this exciting industry. You might think otherwise, however, and claim that a fully functional AI is the big challenge facing primitive robot kind at its current state. Fine, that’s valid too. But really, a good dose of aesthetics should go into robot manufacturing. At their best, most somewhat autonomous robots look like clunky appliances circa the Jetsons. Ugh!
Simply put, you step on a Pavegen tile and it powers a small lithium battery. The energy stored can then be distributed to nearby city-owned infrastructure like street lamps or traffic lights. At least that’s the set up Pavegen are aiming to transform. This might be in a sidewalk near you sooner than you think.
When it comes to global warming, the only people to blame for turning it into a tired and excessively muddied issue is ourselves. Yes, this is a powerful and provocative stance. But really, look at how it has become almost irrelevant in public discourse thanks to so many conflicting facts, falling prey to partisan politics and clever information sabotage. No wonder to this day, there are still global warming skeptics.
Feeling Captain Kirk-like lately? Forget the pressed vacuum-sealed uniform in your closet (yes, we know you have one) and go for this new bathrobe instead. There are three of them to choose from, in fact. Red, blue, and gold for each unit in the USS Enterprise. There’s also a shortened ‘skirt’ version of Uhura suitable for the women.
XtremeMac has unveiled another new charging stand for just about anything Apple. If the Apple product has the charge and sync port on the bottom like the iPad and iPhone, this stand will charge it. It works with the iPod touch, iPhone 4, 4S, iPad, and more.
The thing I hate about using a laptop is that the screen space offered is too small even on the largest notebooks for my taste. If you feel the same way, what you need is a second LCD to hook to your notebook. The Cinq is just that, a small second screen.
It is time for our iPhone 4S review, the iPhone 4S is Apple’s fifth generation iPhone, on the outside the iPhone 4S shares an almost identical design to the original iPhone 4 that we reviewed last year, Apple obviously decided that the original iPhone 4 design was so good that they didn’t need to change it for the iPhone 4S.
There are minor subtle differences between the design of the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S, you can now see evidence of the new dual antennas on the iPhone 4S casing and the volume and mute buttons have been moved down the casing, although it would be hard to notice the difference unless you were comparing the two devices side by side.
When the iPhone 4 was released I was impressed with the design, 16 months later we have the new iPhone 4S which looks almost exactly the same as the original iPhone 4, with its glass back, and the stunning Retina display that can be found inside the iPhone 4.
