Diesel Dz7090 Digital Watch is Retro-Future-Glam-Tastic

Diesel Dz7090 Digital Watch is Retro-Future-Glam-Tastic
Looking like something that David Bowie might have worn during while wearing a skin-tight silver jumpsuit during his Space Oddity / Starman phase, the latest digital watch from Diesel definitely makes a bold statement (if you happen to be a 1970s glam rocker). The DZ7090 not only features a futuristic dot-matrix LCD digital face, but enshrouds it in a shiny patent silver metallic band that’s sure to bring out the Major Tom in you.

Trains That Pick You Up Without Stopping

Trains That Pick You Up Without Stopping
This is a concept for Singapore’s Metro Rail Line so that trains can pick people up without ever stopping. That sounds impossible, right? The idea is that people who want to board the train get into a smaller car that piggybacks onto the moving train as it passes through the station.

Cisco Unveils Star Wars-Esque Hologram Communication

Cisco Unveils Star Wars-Esque Hologram Communication
Cisco has unveiled and demonstrated their new On-Stage TelePresence Holographic Video Conferencing. In layman’s terms, it means that now you can actually do that thing they do in Star Wars when they talk to a Princess Leia hologram, and I have to say, it looks quite convincing. The video is pretty boring except for the fact that it’s a guy on stage talking to two holograms of people who are in other countries.

Bandai Mirai Scope: the Digital Fortune Teller

Bandai Mirai Scope: the Digital Fortune Teller
Think of the latest contraption from Japan’s Bandai as a virtual soothsayer. The pocket-sized device uses a digital personality assessment, along with a dash hocus pocus and other less-than-scientific gibberish to predict your future. The Mirai Scope starts out by asking its owner about fifty personal questions, which help to assign you one of 236 unique personality types (you can try out the actual test here, if you’re up for a little Japanese).

Own the Car of the Future
If you thought the technology in the 2002 flick, Minority Report was impressive, you can now own one of the very cool futuristic cars that Tom Cruise drove in that film. One of the three custom-built Lexus 2054 concept cars made for the Cameron Crowe film will be put up for auction next month.

Asus Aura: iPhone Clone Plus

Asus Aura: iPhone Clone Plus
This cool phone from Asus channels many of its good looks from Apple’s iPhone. The Asus Aura has a 3.9-inch touchscreen LCD, a 2 megapixel digital camera and a slim 6.9mm thick case design. The Aura does one up the iPhone in a few significant ways by offering UMTS and HSDPA (3G) high-speed connectivity, expandable storage via an SD slot and a slide-out keyboard.
