The QR-Code Island is a collaborative project between Mat Barnes and Eddie Blake, and is actually a scale-model of an island that can be scanned by smartphones as a QR code when viewed from above. You’d imagine that something like this would pop up in Dubai, but at least for now, it’s only a model.
We here at Technabob aren’t exactly known for our automotive reporting, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like cool cars. Now, Ford is showing off a new car that combines sporty performance with the type of geeky technology we love to write about here.
Steve Jobs’s announcement that he was stepping down as Apple Inc.’s CEO made waves in the news and in various blogs, which ran numerous stories and articles about his work ethics, the company that he co-founded, the 313 or so patents that are attributed or co-attributed to him, and, of course, about the man himself.
Something about the plan to send Google Street View tricycles down rivers in the Amazon jungle and along trails in the rainforests doesn’t sit right with me. Street View of my area covers one major highway.

The SEED is an autonomous, mobile camera balloon created to take photos and video of you while you’re on vacation, but I honestly see a lot of Big Brother implications. It also reminds me of the Kinos in Stargate Universe.
Do you travel a lot? While you could certainly use any of a number of digital tools to keep track of all the locations you’ve visited, it might be sort of cool to have a more physical manifestation of your journeys than just some Google Maps page that only exists in the digital ether of The Cloud.
All the movies I have seen where a group of soldiers need to travel quietly they always use hand signals to let everyone know what is going on. The thing that is bad about that is in the dark, there is no way for the other people to see hand signals.
I used to watch a lot of the Jetsons as a kid mostly because there was nothing else on after school. I remember their dog Astro and his walks on the treadmill behind the house. Garmin has named its latest GPS dog tracking system after that cartoon pooch.
A few years ago we featured a couple of rear-view mirrors that doubled as monitors and supported Bluetooth integration for hands-free calling.
