Normincies Aluminum Reinforced Laptop Bag: Ready to Rumble

Paranga Simulates Page Flipping for E-Book Readers
If there’s one complaint that people have about E-book readers (besides the fact that they’re not flexible yet), it’s that they don’t really replicate the feel of a real book. A team of researchers in Japan aims to change that, by creating a tactile feedback mechanism for digital books.

Xbox 2600: Ben Heck Builds Atari-Themed Xbox 360 Laptop

Xbox 2600: Ben Heck Builds Atari-Themed Xbox 360 Laptop
Atari will be re-releasing some of their classic games on Xbox Live, and to help promote it they’ve asked modder Ben Heck to create an Atari-inspired Xbox 360 laptop. At first I thought he was going to stuff the guts of a 360 into an Atari 2600, but the case of the old console probably doesn’t have enough room.

12-Port USB 3.0 Hub: Half-Past, Half-Present
Here’s a fairly future-proof hub for USB-gadget hoarders. Chinavision’s Warp Speed hub has 12 ports, 6 of them USB 3.0 compatible. Unless you’re really an early adopter, I think that’s more than enough.

Single Lens Captures Images in 3D

Single Lens Captures Images in 3D
Up until now, the only ways I knew that you could shoot images in 3D was either with a dual lens camera, with two cameras, or some sort of motion-control rig. But thanks to a new lens technology being developed, we could some day capture full 3-dimensional images with a single, complex lens assembly.

Burglar Blaster Makes Bed Intruders Cry
Concerned about someone breaking into your house while you’re away? You could go with a conventional burglar alarm, but what sort of deterrent is a loud buzzer anyhow? This thing seems like a much better way to keep burglars on their toes.
