Asus Plans Netbook With Slot-in Mobile Phone, Gives New Meaning to ‘Phonebook’
After what I imagine must have been a booze-riddled, yet awesome brainstorming session, the folks at ASUS came up with the idea of a netbook with a slot for a specially-made mobile phone, giving users “an easy way to use the same SIM card and data account for both a phone and a portable computer.” Amazingly enough, the phone already exists – it’s made by a company called Modu, and their “ecosystem” already revolves around that gimmick, a phone that slots into different cases and devices.

Touchscreen Knob Concept is Turning a Lot of Heads
In general, devices with touchscreens are intuitive, but not always convenient. Sometimes there’s just no substitute for an actual physical interface. For example, the possible motions for rotation on a touchscreen are awkward, whereas if you had a knob you could easily perform rotation.

Toyota’s Violin-Playing Robot Will Soon Play in a Symphony
Well, maybe not yet, but it’s still impressive that this ‘bot can actually play the violin! I don’t think that human orchestras are in any danger, but it just goes to show that robots can be programmed to do anything.

Tomena Sanner: More Like Toomuch Insaner

Tomena Sanner: More Like Toomuch Insaner
Tomena Sanner looks like it was produced by a team of drunk 8-year olds. By that I mean IT IS AWESOME.
