At first, I thought this was a joke. Then I checked the calendar and it wasn’t April yet. Turns out, this is very real and even though it seems a bit silly to be talking about airbags for the elderly, I suppose this is a really good idea.
I’m a rather unorganized person, I tend to use sticky notes to remind myself of important things I need to do even though I have an iPhone on me just about all the time. Smartphones are meant to keep us organized mind you, but mostly I use mine for watching cat videos and various fail compilations on YouTube.
CES 2014 is upon us, and even though I can’t yet set foot into any booths, plenty of companies are trying to get a jump on things with early product announcements. Perhaps one of the biggest items we’ll see at this year’s show – based on sheer size – is LG’s massive 105-inch Ultra HD TV.
A few months ago we featured iSketchnote, an iPad cover that can record and digitize handwritten or handdrawn notes. If chipmaker Qualcomm has its way, that feature may be integrated into the next wave of tablets.
I think we can all agree the that Coby Electronics brand isn’t exactly known as the epitome of high-end technology. The brand is known for budget-focused devices that generally give up performance, features and build quality for a low price.
A start-up company called Viewdle showed off some interesting smartphone software at CES. Their app can recognize faces in real time and automatically tag them, using either data from social networks or a user-created database from videos and photos on the phone itself.
When my son was an infant, my wife and I didn’t get much sleep for the first few months. We missed sleep not because he cried anymore than a normal baby, but because the doctor went crazy one day and mentioned sudden infant death syndrome in front of my wife.
I’m sure Technabob himself will have more information on ASUS’ new tablet offerings when he goes to CES next week, but for now we’ll just have to be content with these pics, specs and speculation from Tech in Style and Engadget.
In between all the reports of who’s got the thinnest flat screen at this week’s CES show, it’s easy to overlook some of the hidden treasures to be uncovered at the trade show. Take, for instance, this great new wireless controller for the Nintendo Wii.
This new tabletop radio from upstart Cue Acoustics certainly has a winning look. The Cue Radio features a minimal, modern industrial design and a bright, easy-to-read backlit display.
The Cue Radio will offer a digital AM/FM tuner with RDS track and station display, dual alarms, and a built-in iPod dock on top.
A while back, we showed you a funny clip of Honda’s ASIMO humanoid robot falling on his ASS-IMO trying to climb some stairs. Well the good news is now the little guy seems to be doing fine climbing stairs.
Gasoline pump manufacturer, Dresser Wayne, is showing off a new pump that features wireless Internet connectivity, including the ability to purchase and download music tracks while you pump fuel into your gas guzzler.
