A Computer With A Built-in Projector

- - 0 Comments

This concept is brought to you by designer Won-Seok Lee.  The ‘B-membrane’ design is a projector with a built-in computer and touchscreen like keyboard that only appears upon contact.  Also included in the design is a disc drive, but it seems to lack a ‘mouse’ of any type.  It looks...

Walking Laptop

- - 1 Comment

This piece of ‘kit’ (as the English say) isn’t super innovative, but perhaps resolves the everyday working man’s problem.  The harness, or the ‘connect-a-desk laoptop holder’ attaches to your laptop and slips over your head allowing you to stand, walk and type all at the same time. Available here for...

WiMax Hits The Streets In September

- - 0 Comments

There isn’t a ton to tell here, but WiMax, from Sprint, will be available for public use starting September 2008.  Unfortunately, it will only be available in the Baltimore area (why there, I don’t know) and hit Washington D.C and Chicago by the end of the year. [TheRegister]...

Chevy Volt Price Announced

Chevy finally got on board with the whole hybrid/electric car thing and built the Chevy Volt (Chevy actually has an all electric golf cart that is road legal on streets 30MPH or slower).  Today, Bob Lutz, Chevy’s CEO, revealed the actual price of the new Volt.  He originally said it...

The Dual Touschreen Laptop, or more officially known as the Prezenter PSR, isn’t intended for the general public.  No, it’s designed for harassing the working stiffs.  Ok, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but this dual touchscreen computer is designed to facilitate on the move sales folks who don’t have the luxury...

Supreme Edition Adult Darth Vader Costume

I don’t even think ‘die hard’ does justice.  Available at Buy.com is the Supreme Edition Adult Darth Vader Costume.  Price?  Well, it shouldn’t be a factor for those ultimate fans, but in case you wondering about the lunacy involved, you can pick it up for $680 – and that’s down...

Sprint Instinct Now Set To Debut at $130

- - 0 Comments

Originally the Sprint Samsung Instinct was set to be $199 after mail-in-rebates, etc.  Now, Sprint, the scrappers that they are, and after the 3G iPhone was announced at $199 for the 8GB model, they’ve decided to drop the price an additional $70.  The Sprint Instinct will be available June 20th...

iPhone Running Windows XP, YES Windows!

- - 2 Comments

This is pretty scary, or is it?  Citrix demonstrated how its thin client desktop software, XenDesktop, could run Windows XP.  Ok, I’ll come clean, it isn’t actually running Windows XP natively but rather accessing it via a UNIX application that enables devices to access Windows sessions on a Citrix server...
