If you want to have a seat outdoors and be protected from bugs, and don’t care about moving around, standing, or being social, the $50 Bug & Mosquito Pop-Up Screen Chair Tent is for you. It’s a personal tent big enough to fit one person and their folding chair.
One of Google’s April Fools’ Day pranks was the launch of Google Nose, a search engine that would supposedly push your olfactory senses into hyperdrive. While you won’t be able to smell stuff on your computer display yet, you might soon be able to on your television screen.
Do you ever wish you could stream stuff from your iPhone or iPod Touch to your computer display? Then this AOC display could be the one for you. It features a 30-pin dock that outputs audio and video directly from your iOS device to the screen.
Getting extra screen real estate is always a plus, no matter what your current monitor configuration is. AOC’s latest screen is a USB monitor, and it’s light enough to make carrying it around a possibility, which is good for mobile road warriors who need portable workstations.
PixelInvaders is a computer-controlled RGB LED matrix project by Michael Vogt. The goal is to use these panels, which can be interconnected, as effect lighting in clubs, bars, fairs, museums, on stage, in a lobby or in your living room.
I think the era of 3D was officially ushered in with the release of the Nintendo 3DS. Although the concept and technology has already been around for some time with 3D movies and 3D television, it was only then (in my opinion, at least) that 3D sort of made its way into mainstream technology since 3D was being offered, glasses-free, on the handheld video game console.
I guess someone was bound to come up with a product like this sooner or later. Invented by Joe Graley, the Nu-Screen HD is a rub-on substance that supposedly keeps gadget screens clean and shiny. It’s mostly made up of carnauba wax, which is also used in car waxes, surfboard waxes, floor and furniture waxes, shoe polishes… you get the idea.
It’s not like I haven’t seen matrix displays before, but this is definitely a unique spin on the concept. Developed by Rick Borovoy, Ph. D. and Brian Knep of the MIT Center for Future Civic Media, Junkyard Jumbotron lets you combine a number of internet-connected screens together to create one big matrixed image.
After that 200-inch monster 3D screen from yesterday, it looks like the touchscreen guys wanted us to know they could keep up. This enormous multi-touch screen measures about 33 feet wide. Now that is pretty big.
Bigger screens are the way to go. I just can’t wait to have a screen that’s the size of my whole living room wall. Although this seems like science-fiction, it might not be because NICT has unveiled a 200-inch glasses-free 3D screen that might actually make me want to watch 3D stuff.
The first time we saw the Holocube, the thing had a 20-inch screen that could show small “holograms” that looked really cool. The system has since been upgraded with a larger screen that can handle images that are the size of a 6-foot-tall adult.
How’d you like it if you could turn your iPhone into a glasses-free 3D display?
By using an old-school technique with a half-silvered mirror placed at a 45-degree angle, along with a special app, the i3DG Palm Top Theater turns your iPhone or iPodTouch into a 3D display.
Created for the latest episode of The Ben Heck Show, the modder created yet another ingenious design, a laptop with a screen optimized for flying in a in the cramped cabin of a commercial airplane.
If any of you have ever tried to use your laptop on the tray table of an airplane, you know how irritating it can be to get the screen angle to work where you can comfortably view it.
This great small display might be the next big thing for smart phones or mini-tablets, which is the form-factor that could benefit from this incredibly small HD display technology.
But how small is it? Just 4.8 inches, that’s all.
