Wacom Nextbeat Wireless Controller for Djs: From Tablets to Turntables to the Dance Floor
Wacom, known almost solely for their pen-based graphic tablets and touchscreens has made the jump into an entirely new market – DJs. Maybe dance clubs are more recession-proof than graphic designers? Who knows? The new Wacom nextbeat is a music controller which lets both professional and casual digital dee-jays finesse their tunes in about any way imaginable – even from the middle of the dance floor.

This funky modern watch out of Japan tells time not with hands or numbers, but with a tiny little electrocardiogram machine that sits on your wrist.

Microsoft HD View Offers Gigapixel Zoom, Hdr Images, More
I was working on a story about something completely different today when I came across this intriguing digital image technology they’ve been working on for a while over at Microsoft Research. The team sums up their not-too-lofty goal for their HD View technology as follows: “…to create the best picture given (a) a source with high resolution, arbitrary dynamic range, any field of view & color gamut; (b) the user’s interaction; and (c) the display being used.”

Takara Tomy Xiao Camera Poops Pictures
Now I’ve seen some wacky commercials out of Japan, but this one is one of the more off-the-wall ad campaigns I’ve seen in a long while. These promotional clips for Takara Tomy’s new Xiao digital camera / printer hybrid drives the point home that the pocket size camera can output its own tiny photo prints – apparently by pooping them out.

Diamond-Covered Watch: So Many Diamonds, So Little Time

Diamond-Covered Watch: So Many Diamonds, So Little Time
This diamond-encrusted LED watch is so madly, deeply, insanely blinged over with diamonds that you can barely see what time it is. In fact, the diamonds cover the face of the watch so you have to read the digital display through a diamond screen.

With a whopping 128 bright LEDs on each digit, there’s no chance that you’ll miss the time on this clock. Sporting a total of 768 individually addressable amber LEDs, each one of the numbers slides into and out of view as the hours, minutes and seconds tick away.

In the market for a modern digital watch that’s looks cool, but is still easy to read? Storm’s Ambition watches might be just what you’re looking for.
