Sony’s VAIO P Gets A Crocodile Skin


We brought you news of the Australia-exclusive Billabong VAIO P earlier this week, but Sony’s already got another special edition skin on the way. Exclusive to Japan, this Crocodile skin (imitation, of course) comes on a VAIO P loaded with new features. This VAIO P has all the new specs we’ve...


The X10 MID Does 1080p Output For A Low Price


Here’s a curious specimen — an inexpensive MID of unknown origins. The X10 (manufacturer currently unnamed) is a 7-inch, 800×480 resolution MID that runs on neither Android or Windows 7, but Windows CE 6. Its big draw is 1080p output via HDMI. Other specs include WiFi, GPS, 256MB RAM, and...


Sony’s Flexible OLED Display Wraps Around A Pencil (video)


We’ve seen OLED display technology, and it’s super impressive – thin, high quality screens that are incredibly versatile. Now Sony has created a 4.1-inch OLED display that is so flexible, it wraps around a pencil. Offering 432×240 resolution, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and 80 μm thickness, the display still works...

Lacie Fingerprint Rugged Hard Drive

Lacie Adds Fingerprint Protection To Rugged Hard Drive


Lacie is pretty good at production iterations, and while their latest Rugged Safe hard drive is essentially the same as previous models it does add some bad ass security that will have even the most talented of hackers scratching their heads.  First up is 128-bit AES hardware encryption, which is...

Vivaz pro

Vivaz pro Now Shipping Worldwide


Fancy yourself a Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro?  Good news, because they’ve begun to ship the handset worldwide, though they didn’t get specific about locales.  Specs wise it supports up to a 32GB SDHC card, has a 5.1 megapixel camera, 3G connectivity (different connectivity options per country), a 3.2-inch 640×360 touchscreen,...

LED Pacifier

LED Pacifier


Why does the LED Pacifier seem so wrong?  Perhaps it’s because it could possibly mess with your baby’s development, or do the complete opposite and make them into some sort of savant (hopefully a card counting one).  In any case it’s just $5, making it a solidified impulse purchase and...

BeBonic Hand

BeBionic Hand: Cyborg Becomes Reality (video)


Dean Kamen’s Luke Arm is most certainly one piece of impressive kit.  And while we were thinking nothing could possibly eclipse it along comes the BeBionic hand.  The deets are a bit few and far between, but it comes in 19 different skin tone overlays and as you’ll see from...


Soda Can With A Resealable Lid (video)


Isn’t it about time the soda can got an update?  And perhaps this time the update won’t be motivated by safety reasons (remember those swallowable tabs?).  This design uses the standard soda pop-can tabs, but hidden underneath the lid is an additional seal that can be rotated into place just...
