I’ve been wondering why the old Rubik’s Cube has been making appearances all over the place lately, with a significant amount of screen time dedicated to it in Will Smith’s craptacular The Pursuit of Happyness. Now we know it was all product placement geared towards the upcoming release of the new Rubik’s Revolution, a modern update to the classic brainteaser.
While LCD and DLP sets continue to move towards LEDs as their light source, high quality Liquid Crystal on Silicon LCOS (a.k.a. Sony’s SXRD and JVC’s HD-ILA) displays have so far been left out in the cold.
LCD sets just keep getting better and better these days. LG upped the ante today by showing off a new 47-inch screen loaded with features that could put LCD ahead of plasma in picture quality once and for all.
The new display features LED backlighting with what’s being called “local dimming”.
One of the top news stories of the last 24 hours was a bomb scare set off in Boston because of a guerilla marketing campaign for the Adult Swim show, Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Mysterious LED devices featuring the ATHF characters “Ignignokt” and “Err” (flipping the bird) we placed around the city, sending the city into a panic.

Back in May 2006, Sony filed a patent application, titled “Detectable and Trackable Handheld Controller,” which approaches motion sensing control in a totally different way than the Nintendo Wii does it.
Unlike the Wii’s internal accelerometer and gyroscopic sensors, Sony’s patent uses a series of four LEDs on the front of the controller, which provide points of reference for a webcam device that sits on top of a TV.
Tagz are programmable scrolling LED tags that hang from a pendant. You can program a message of your choice by pressing a couple of buttons on the back of the tag.
