Notebook Pc Keyboard Splits Open to Reveal 2nd Screen
I like to think that I know a thing or two about computers. I was beginning to think I’d seen just about everything, when I came across this fascinating oddity. What you’re looking at is a truly unique beast, the Ergonomic Dual Screen Split Keyboard Notebook Portable Personal Computer – I’ll just call it EDSSKNCPPC for short ;) The model shown is actually known as “the Executive” (because what executive wouldn’t want one of these in place of his or her Crackberry?)

My Touch Keys Adds Tactile Feedback to iPhone, Sorta.

My Touch Keys Adds Tactile Feedback to iPhone, Sorta.
Do you love the iPhone, but struggle with the smooth on-screen keyboard? Personally, I’ve found it pretty easy to use, but the touchscreen definitely doesn’t offer the touch-typing feedback that you get with physical keys. This new, low cost screen overlay for the iPhone claims to provide tactile cues to your fingertips to help them find their way.

Sony Xperia X1 Mobile Takes Aim at iPhone
Sony Ericsson today revealed their new XPERIA X1 smartphone, and it looks like it could be a serious contender in the battle for mobile supremacy. With a slick, modern user interface and industrial design to match, the phone is clearly designed to compete with Apple’s iPhone Juggernaut.

Navisurfer Ii: a Complete Pc in Your Car’s Dashboard
This isn’t the first time I’ve seen a computer designed to fit inside your car, but it’s definitely the first one I’ve seen which can fit entirely in the space of your old car stereo. The Navisurfer II occupies a single DIN slot in your car’s dashboard, and manages to cram in an entire PC with a flip-out touchscreen 7-inch color display.

Ifone is One Phony iPhone

Ifone is One Phony iPhone
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But sometimes, a crummy copy is just a crummy copy. Take for example, this poor Taiwanese knock-off of the Apple iPhone. This thing makes no bones about its source of inspiration.

Pinball Tries the Digital Route Once More

Pinball Tries the Digital Route Once More
Every once in a while a company takes a stab at trying to resurrect pinball machines using modern technology. The latest entry into the digital pinball genre replaces the old mechanical table with a large flat screen display and interchangeable digital games.

Hp Photosmart A826 Photo Printer: Mork Calling Orson

Hp Photosmart A826 Photo Printer: Mork Calling Orson
This odd-looking photo printer from HP has a style that you’ll either love or hate. Reminiscent in some ways of the original egg-shaped iMac models from the late 1990s, the Photosmart A826 printer looks a bit like something out of an old science fiction movie.

Fentix Cube: Like Rubiks on Roids

Fentix Cube: Like Rubiks on Roids
Interactive artist Andrew Fentem created this cool electronic cube puzzle game loaded with colorful LEDs. The Fentix Cube is controlled by touch as well as through movement. While it’s designed as a platform, capable of playing a number of different games and puzzles, the interactive plaything happens to do a great job digitally emulating the old Rubik’s Cube.

Jazzmutant Lemur Multi-Touch Control for Musicians
The other day, I told you about a tabletop multi-touch interface for creating music sequences. While I was researching that story, I came across an interesting touchscreen interactive music controller device that you can actually get your hands on for yourself.

Reactogon Interactive Sequencer Reminds Me of Star Trek

Reactogon Interactive Sequencer Reminds Me of Star Trek
I recently came across this rather cool user interface for a music sequencer called the ReactOgon. Looking like something you’d find on the deck of the Starship Enterprise, the instrument uses a large tabletop multi-touch interface to create music sequences in real time.

Mac Fans Get Surface-Based Computer
While it’s not exactly the multi-touch Mac that people have been clamoring for Apple to make, Savant Systems’ touchpanel coffee table might be the next best thing. Their Mac-based ROSIE Coffee Table Touchpanel Controller provides a one-stop-shop interface to all your home entertainment needs.

Sony Psp Gets a Touchscreen (Sorta)

Sony Psp Gets a Touchscreen (Sorta)
While Sony has made it pretty clear that a touchscreen interface won’t be part of the PSP any time soon, that hasn’t stopped modders from trying to make it so. Thanks to the folks over at Spark Fun Electronics, that task just got a whole lot easier.

Gamepark Gp2x F-200: Portable Gaming Gets Updated

Gamepark Gp2x F-200: Portable Gaming Gets Updated
If you ask die-hard gaming enthusiasts what portable console they think is best, you might think they’d all say the Nintendo DS or Sony PSP. But there’s a little portable that has a huge underground following because of its ability to run homebrew games and emulators.

Provia A1 Gps Navigator: Way Too Sexy for Itself

Provia A1 Gps Navigator: Way Too Sexy for Itself
Those of us in the States tend to think of GPS navigators as relatively utilitarian devices that help us find our way when we’re too afraid to ask for directions at the gas station. In Asia, GPS devices seem to be on the way to becoming much more.

Myfountain: the Real Robotic Bartender

Myfountain: the Real Robotic Bartender
A couple of months back, I showed you a rather silly beer-pouring robot that seemed to do nothing more than slow down the process of pouring you a brew. On the other hand, this ingenious robotic drink machine actually looks pretty cool.

Windows Mobile Users Ask: Who Needs an iPhone?

Windows Mobile Users Ask: Who Needs an iPhone?
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the user interface designers over at Apple should be feeling pretty good about themselves these days. We’ve seen everything from knock-off devices, to an online screen smudge simulator, to PSP-based menu frontends.
