This new device was commissioned by the United States Postal Service in order to hunt down some of the inefficiencies in their mail delivery process. Developed by California’s TrackingTheWorld, the gadget is slipped inside of a letter, and tracks the precise journey of an individual piece of mail.
Satellite imagery has become part of our everyday lives through applications like Google Maps. However, the current technology involves capturing tons of high-resolution images and stitching them together to form one larger image. This not only creates a huge amount of work to precisely align these images, it also leaves live-action surveillance susceptible to drop-outs as subjects move between cameras (yeah, I’ve seen 24 too).
Good news for DirecTV subscribers. The satellite provider today launched 21 new high definition channels for your viewing enjoyment. The channels are the first wave of programming for DirecTV’s 100 HD channel promise.
The initial 21 channels are available immediately if you’re signed up for the HD package and have the SD version of the channel in your current programming plan.
I was over on DBSTalk this morning reading about some fun I was having with my DirecTV HD DVR, when I stumbled across this interesting image.
The upcoming DirecTV HR21 PRO looks like a whopper of a high-definition DVR, capable of recording up to 100 hours of HD programming.
Is it just me, or have alien life forms abducted the workers in speaker factories lately? In recent days, I’ve come across some otherworldly radial speakers, dramatic communication towers, and even some that look like the aliens themselves.
If you’re in the market for some dramatic looking speakers, and can’t afford the $50k radial loudspeakers I told you about yesterday, you might want to check out these ones from Britz. They may not be the biggest or most powerful speakers out there, but they sure look purty.
Shipping this July, Sony’s latest home theater system distinguishes itself by having some of the smallest satellite speakers I’ve ever seen.
Amazingly the $800 DAV-IS10’s five tiny little speakers can crank out 50-watts each, which should be more than enough for producing decent levels.
Creative has released their latest iPod docking stereo, and this one looks really substantial.
The X-Fi Sound System i600 is a complete 2.1 stereo system, with dual 2-way satellite speakers and a powered subwoofer. The speakers are each amplified at 35 Watts per channel, while the subwoofer offers 130 Watts of power for some serious bass.
Those of you lucky enough to own a boat can now watch high definition satellite TV when you head out to sea. This marine satellite antenna system continually adjusts to point at the correct location in the skies for you to watch HD satellite programming wherever you go.
Satellite provider DirecTV has revealed a design for a portable satellite receiver/tv combo, known as the SAT-GO.
Little is yet known about the product and whether it is simply a prototype or a product that will hit the market soon.
This new portable radio from SIRIUS enables true on-the-go listening to the satellite radio service.
The SIRIUS Stiletto 100 allows live portable reception of SIRIUS programming and stores up to 100 hours of broadcasts or up to 10 hours of individual songs for later playback (using 2GB of internal memory.)
The $350 Stiletto also has a built-in wi-fi receiver which allows you to listen to a number of internet radio stations when you’re out of satellite range, but in wi-fi range.
The folks over at OrbitCast came across a product page on the JJI Electronics website for Delphi’s new XM SkyFi3 satellite radio. Apparently the folks at JJI jumped the gun on this as yet unannounced radio.
