Last month we told you about Evolta’s latest quest and how he was training for the event. We have news that everyone’s favorite little robot from Panasonic has now completed the Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii.
Panasonic’s new Shampoo robot, recently shown off at CEATEC 2011, has hairdressing salons scared. Okay, not really. They don’t have anything to fear from this thing just yet. Although it looks like it might feel like a good massage (until it peels your scalp clean off when it becomes self-aware), it is as slow as Jessica Simpson in a physics class.
Panasonic has announced a new communication assistance robot called HOSPI-Rimo. Don’t worry, he quite literally isn’t armed. That means that it should be harder for this guy to kill you either – intentionally or by accident.
What is it about rugged laptops that makes them so interesting? Is it the fact that you can take them on camping trips and not worry too much about scratching them? Or is it the fact that you can pretend to be on some sort of secret mission while you’re using one?
There’s something inherently cool about rugged point-and-shoot cameras. You can toss them around, drop them in water, and they’ll still end up taking great photos. For most people, it’s become apparent that their smartphones are replacing their point-and-shoots.
If you have one of those cool Panasonic Lumix G2 micro four-thirds digital cameras with interchangeable lenses, a new firmware has landed. The upgrade adds a really cool new feature to the camera if you buy the sweet Panasonic H-FT012 3D lens that surfaced a few months back.
If there’s one thing that I wouldn’t want a robot to do, it’s to wash my hair before getting a haircut. But that didn’t stop Panasonic [JP] from making a hair washing robot, that hopefully won’t rip your head off.
To celebrate the 17th anniversary of the 3DO, Panasonic is getting back into the video game business. Just kidding about the 3DO part, but who knows. What’s true is that the company is working on Panasonic Cloud Entertainment, a platform with an emphasis on online gaming and cloud-based media.
If you are familiar with digital cameras at all, you will probably recognize the Lumix brand as Panasonic’s line of popular digital cameras that are sold all around the world. Panasonic is set to offer up its first Lumix branded mobile phone, which means the device will be focused on taking very nice pictures in addition to making calls.
The new stadium that the Dallas Cowboys plays in here in Texas has a gigantic video screen hanging from the ceiling and the thing is awesomely huge. There are other massive video walls in use around the country in stadiums and other places where many people congregate to watch sports.
Digital Trends have reviewed Panasonic’s DMP-B15, The world’s first portable Blu-ray player. So is it worth the $800 USD price tag? Well, the player does get a 7 (out of 10 I guess), but after reading the review my short answer has to be NO.
Panasonic demoed their own robot floor cleaner at the Tokyo Fiber Senseware exhibition in Milan. It’s called the “fukitorimushi” (wipe-up bug), although if you ask me “Creepy Pillow” would be a better name for it. The high-tech pillow cleaner detects dust and dirt using “blue-white light” and then cleans ’em up using a cutting-edge nanocloth developed by Teijin Ltd.
