Getting ready for the World Series games, or any of the big holiday bowls quickly coming our way? We’ve got the the top LED TVs for for top-line sports action, so take a look at the models and see which wins in your book!
Sometimes a small TV just isn’t enough. With today’s advances in 4K resolution and additional clarity, picking a larger screen comes with even more advantages, especially if you like to feel like you are in the middle of the action.
I’ve seen some strange gadgets out of Japan over the years, and the latest oddity is the Sharp RoBoHoN. It’s a robot that has a phone built in. It has the ability to make calls and check email over a LTE/3G connection.
Instructables member Mister M loves to convert old gadgets into their newer incarnations. For his latest project, he turned a 1981 Sharp VC-2300H portable VCR into a media center powered by the Raspberry Pi. Thanks to its tall boombox-like shape, Mister M was able to add a 15″ HD screen on the back of the VCR.
Sharp has unveiled a slick bit of display tech that will free us all from the tyranny of the rectangle. It doesn’t matter where you find a display these days be it in your car, phone, or a TV, they are all rectangles.
While a new crop of smartphones has just been released in the U.S., the Japanese aren’t going to fall behind anytime soon. They just upped the ante with the new Sharp Aquos Phone Zeta SH-02E, which is the first production smartphone with an IGZO display.
The 2012 Mobile World Congress kicked off today, and that means new smartphones and other cutting edge mobile technology. But here at Technabob we’re more about cutting strange, so instead of looking at the future today let’s take a look at the past.
I have a 27-inch iMac sitting on my desk in the office, and I can’t get enough of its gorgeously sharp 2560 x 1440 resolution display on that machine. Well, pretty soon, you might be able to enjoy a similar resolution on a small tablet, if you can believe it.
Sometimes, all it takes to size an object up is one look. It doesn’t have to be a very long gaze or detailed inspection. And in the case of Sharp’s new AQUOS IS11H Phone, it just takes a second or two to glance at the images and know that these phones are geared towards Japanese women.
The first time I ever saw a 3D movie was at a theme park. Each time we go to the beach we end up having to take the kids over to the IMAX theater that is nearby too so we can see something on the giant screen.
You got to admit that a 70-inch HDTV is pretty big. Prices have come down significantly for big screens, and the Sharp Aquos brand is no different. Their biggest LED LCD HDTV is probably bigger than a lot of your friends, at 5’10” diagonal.
I always wonder what to do with all the bits and pieces of obsolete technology I have lying around. Sure, I donate what I can to schools, but I’ve even been turned down there when the tech is too old or unwieldy.
Pioneer Electronics has a line of high-end gear that it sells under its Elite brand. That gear has Blu-ray players and AV receivers among other things and all of the gear is high-end and expensive. The line at one point had produced TVs as well, but those were discontinued.
If you don’t have an iPhone or an Android phone yet, why not get a Gundam Robot Phone instead?
This phone will be released by Japan’s third biggest mobile phone carrier, SoftBank Mobile, who has 25 million subscribers.
3D is going to be everywhere this year, thanks to James Cameron’s Avatar. I recently read that even Mars would be filmed in 3D on those Pathfinder drones. Now, it looks like Sharp came up with a new and cute little add-on that will allow you to film 3D with your phone!
Now that you just ditched your new flat-panel for one that supports 3D, Sharp has one-upped the competition with the announcement of the first 3D sets that use 4 pixel colors (RGBY) instead of just 3 (RGB).
