Transforming Wallpaper, Just Add Heat


I’m pretty sure I don’t need to explain this one in great detail as this is clearly a case of ‘a picture is worth a 1,000 words’ (BTW I don’t believe in 10,000 words).  Using a heat sensitive paint, the imagery on the wall changes.  This is very much like...


Wearable Motorcycle


Say what now.  Although this probably won’t be hitting ‘store shelves’ anytime in the foreseeable future, this wearable motorcycle from Yamaha is a small glimpse into the future of transportation.  The Yamaha Deus Ex Machina, a product of transportation student Jake Loniak, is an electric motored 3 wheel machine that...


Touchscreen Turntables


Where do people find the time? Invented by a UK student (Scott Hobbs), the dual touchscreen turntables allows you to do a wide variety of cool ass things. Based on the video it looks like he’s integrated a drum machine into the tables and the touchscreen surface shows the waveform...


View London From New York Via the Telectroscope


What the hell is a Telectroscope? It’s like a telescope only it’s not. In fact, the Telectroscope dates back the 19th century, or does it? Ok, I’ll come clean. The Telectroscope is in fact a work of art by Paul St. George. The whole thing is in fact a wives...

- - 1 Comment

[GR]Fl7cqFQatP4[/GR] The iPhone Blog did a side-by-side comparison of the Blackberry Bold and iPhone.  According to the iPhone Blog RIM disabled the browser’s full functionality (something to do with a PIN) so they’ve preloaded the web pages in the video.  Funny, I swore RIM leaked the Bold onto Ebay for...

EPOS Digital Pen Review


By Ian S. Gertler [singlepic=337,460,380,web20,] Let’s face it — we’re living in an electronic — and increasingly mobile — world. While desktops still exist, it’s the “on the go” devices that are gaining market share each day. However, even users that sport the latest laptops (like the new MacBook Air),...

Scandyna Micropod SE Active Speaker Review


[singlepic=327,460,380,web20,]I think I’ve said it before, but if I didn’t, here it is again: Speakers aren’t easy to review and are in fact extremely subjective. I don’t use any type of technical measurement to see what the Hz range is, or if the signal-to-noise ratio is up to snuff. Nope,...
