One of the more interesting digital cameras unveiled at CES 2011 is the Casio Exilim TRYX. It’s main tryk trick? A frame that’s connected to the main body only on the lens part, allowing for a variety of shooting angles and positions.
As expected, some new solid-state drives are being showcased at this week’s CES. Micron was the first to show things off with their RealSSD C400 drives – based upon a 25-nanometer NAND flash die-based drive.
Rovio’s wildly successful iOS game has branched out to the Android Marketplace and Ovi Store, but the angry birds of Angry Birds are still looking for more of their green porcine archenemies. Starting this week, the game will also be playable on PCs via Intel’s AppUp center.
The gang over at Withings is all about using tech and gadgets to help people stay fit and healthy. These folks have that scale that interfaces with the iPhone, tracks your weight, and will tweet your weight if you want it to.
Think back a number of years ago when OnStar first launched. The ability to talk on your cell phone without actually having to hold a cell phone was really novel. Of course, this was back in the days before Bluetooth was as common as it is in cars today.
Kudos are in order for Griffin. Not only is the new CarTrip a cool sounding product that works with the iPhone to allow you to monitor things about your car, but they resisted the temptation to strap an “i” in front of the product name.
LG’s new slimline smartphone offers a svelte 9.2mm profile, and a new display LG calls “NOVA.” The new tech offers a super-bright screen that outputs 700 nits of brightness, and is about 15% more energy-efficient than prior LG smartphone displays.
Speakal has just announced a TARDIS speaker for all you Doctor Who fanatics out there. Oh, and if you’re a Top Gear fan, and still like the Stig even though the real Stig betrayed Top Gear and aired the show’s dirty laundry in a tell-all book, you can dock your iPhone in a Stig helmet.
There are already several apps available that turn iOS devices into remote controls for both hardware and software media players, such as Apple’s own Remote app or the XBMC Remote (also available for Android), but how about an app that can move your TV?
In the United States at least, the availability of over-the-air video on mobile devices is quite strange, almost the exact opposite of the state of dedicated televisions. Web video like YouTube are mostly a click away, and Netflix is all you need to stream popular shows and movies.
How smart is your car stereo? I’m happy that my stereo can interface with my iPhone and let me sort through my music efficiently. However, if you want something that does more than just play music and display the time, you might want to have a gander at what Parrot is cooking up with their Asteroid.
Twitter user cadeson stumbled upon the polar opposite of that other cardboard Gundam:
This jaw-dropping creation is a replica of the ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam from Gundam SEED. What it lacks in color it more than makes up for in detail, particularly on its head and fingers.
By combining an iOS device dock with a pico projector, the guys at WowWee will help you convert your iDevice into a mini home theater you can take anywhere you go.
The Cinemin Slice has a reasonably bright DLP projector built into it, and all you need to do is slide your iPod, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPhone, or iPad into the dock, and you can project your video onto any spare wall you’ve got around.
