The Acer Revo RL100 Media center was released about 6 months ago in Asia, and we’re finally going to get it in the US. It’s supposed to be a digital media hub and is for those people who don’t want to have a full-on HTPC in their living room.
Sony Ericsson unveiled a new music-oriented phone last week called the Mix Walkman. Aside from the usual range of features we’ve come to expect from smartphones, the Mix Walkman has a couple of neat extras that could make it a must buy for music lovers.
If you’re like me, you’d love some robot to prepare your breakfast, kind of like those crazy machines from Back to the Future. While today’s robots are certainly smarter than Doc Brown’s jury-rigged breakfast maker, you might wonder how good the robot breakfast will be.
Father’s day is just around the corner, and if you still haven’t found the perfect present for you dad, then I suggest you get him a Pillow Tie.
Before you ask, let me just say that, yes, it’s exactly what its name suggest.
When the sun comes out, it’s time to play. At least, that’s what we’ve all been singing about ever since we were wee little children with Rain, Rain, Go Away.
I love to hit the beach when the weather’s perfect and it’s just the right kind of sunny.
You know a camera is small when it’s got the following warning on its product page: “Important: Keep away from small children as it could become a choking hazard.”
While I’m not sure the guys who make this tiny camera have actually checked with the Guinness Book or World Records, I do have to say this is the smallest standalone HD camera I’ve seen.
We’ve written about a couple of other tiny cameras before, but this one definitely looks smaller than either the already miniscule Chobi Cam or the MAME-CAM DX.
So what do you do when your CPU’s fried and you can’t extract any more useful information out of it? Don’t throw it out! Instead, gulp down some creative juices and turn it into a clock, because that’s exactly what the folks behind TECOART did.
We’ve featured several robots that can dispense, fetch or even serve beer, but this deceptive little fella is the beer. Can. Invented by Ron Tajima, the transforming beer can robot reminds me of the scene in Transformers when all sorts of metal objects and gadgets were brought to life by the All Spark.
I’ve always been extremely careful with my Nikon D200, but it’s hard to do so all of the time. That’s why there are more and more durable cameras on the market. One of the latest is the compact Ricoh PX.
I’ve seen a lot of cool steampunk projects and steampunk-inspired designs, but Datamancer’s Steampunk Laptop takes the cake, in my opinion.
You might have already seen or heard about the Steampunk Laptop. After all, it has been around for the past five years, and I remember gawking at photos of the redesigned laptop itself a few years back.
Instructables member Michael Chen’s friend gave him a broken laptop. Chen decided to treat the situation as a glass half-full and converted the distressed laptop into a desktop. It may sound counterintuitive, but then again he practically made something out of nothing and extended the lifespan of the computer.
The iPad 2 is quickly becoming the go-to tablet for a lot of people. While other manufacturers are struggling to come up with viable competing devices, Apple is laughing all the way to the bank. That being said, if you are trying to use your iPad 2 as a computer, you’ll most definitely need a keyboard of some sort.
This will certainly cement the “an app for everything” claim. Apparently, a pair of iPhones have been certified for space flight and are set to take off on STS-135, the final Space Shuttle mission, tentatively scheduled for July 8th.
The Xbox 360 Kinect has proven to be an interactive hacker’s dream device, offering plentiful opportunities to track objects, recognize forms, and capture sounds. In one of the latest Kinect hacks to hit, an artist created a system which turns the Kinect into a virtual graffiti machine.
