Anyone else remember when ‘video calling’ was the wave of the future, in the the 80s? I recall people trying to solve the whole bandwidth, streaming, caching problem and then poof, cell phones eclipsed the video phone concept. Obviously, that didn’t stop Asus from building the AiGuru SV1 Videophone, though.  Built-in WiFi and Ethernet get you connected (looks like Skype) while the 7-inch 800×600 screen displays all the video mischief you and a love one can have.  The built-in battery will allow true cord free conversations, though you’ll be limited to 20 minutes of pointless banter.

Looks oddly similar to the video phone in the movie ‘Total Recall’.  Get your ass back back to MARS!  My name is not Quade!  Malena!

Expect the Asus AiGuru SV1 sometime this November for $300.  Available in Europe and North America.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
