App Lets You Use Sixaxis Controller with Some Android Devices

App Lets You Use Sixaxis Controller with Some Android Devices
Many of us would like better gaming controls on our touch-based devices. I can’t think of anything better than a PS3 Sixaxis controller for the job, and it looks like Dancing Pixel Studios agrees.

Fleet Commander: the Best Star Wars Game to Never Exist

Fleet Commander: the Best Star Wars Game to Never Exist
…not officially anyway. Arthur Nishimoto, a graduate student at the University of Illinois’ Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL), is currently working on a touch-based real-time strategy game based on the Star Wars universe. The rest of us will probably never be able to play it though, mostly because it’s for research, but also because it requires a huge touchscreen to play.

Panasonic Toughbook C1 Convertible Laptop: Rugged Without Looking Rugged

Panasonic Toughbook C1 Convertible Laptop: Rugged Without Looking Rugged
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?

Nesting PC Virtual Tablet Concept: What You See is What You Get

Nesting PC Virtual Tablet Concept: What You See is What You Get
We’ve featured several entries from this year’s Fujitsu Design Award competition organized by designboom, but all of them focused on modularizing a computer or making it more portable. It’s not a surprising focus, what with the growing popularity of portable computing.

Keyless Lifebook Concept Lets You Make Your Own Virtual Keyboard

Keyless Lifebook Concept Lets You Make Your Own Virtual Keyboard
I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m far less efficient typing on a touchscreen than I am when using a tactile keyboard. Heck, even today’s relatively flat laptop keyboards are still much faster for typists than touchscreens.

Monteverde Stylus Ballpoint Pen is Future Proof

Monteverde Stylus Ballpoint Pen is Future Proof
Here’s a pen that you’ll find useful for work (or play) for years to come. The Monteverde Stylus Ballpoint Pen is not only refillable, it also has a conductive rubber tip mounted on its click-top, so you can use it on any device with a capacitive touchscreen.

Robot Excels at Angry Birds

Robot Excels at Angry Birds
I have a confession to make. I’ve played through just about every Angry Birds level on every Angry Birds game out there. But still, I’ve not been able to get three stars on every level yet.

Is That a Stylus on Your Nose, or Are You Happy to See Me?

Is That a Stylus on Your Nose, or Are You Happy to See Me?
Nothing says “dork” like a long, white stylus on your nose for your smartphone. I think this must be a spoof concept and not something that the designer seriously thinks is a viable product.

Minebea COOL LEAF Mirror Keyboard Goes Into Production: Forget About Touch Typing

Minebea COOL LEAF Mirror Keyboard Goes Into Production: Forget About Touch Typing
This cool looking keyboard first appeared as a concept last year, and the Japanese company Minebea was considering making it a reality. They’ve just announced that they will release it in Japan on May 13th.

Rear-View Mirror With GPS, Bluetooth, Multimedia Playback and Touchscreen Games (aka the We’re Going to Die Mirror)

Rear-View Mirror With GPS, Bluetooth, Multimedia Playback and Touchscreen Games (aka the We’re Going to Die Mirror)
A few years ago we featured a couple of rear-view mirrors that doubled as monitors and supported Bluetooth integration for hands-free calling. It seems as if not enough morons have died on the road, because the distraction-packed rear-view mirror is back, packed with more distraction than ever before.

Garmin Forerunner 610: The Touchscreen GPS Watch is a Go!

Garmin Forerunner 610: The Touchscreen GPS Watch is a Go!
Garmin just revealed a new GPS watch, the Forerunner 610. Unlike the previous model, it has touchscreen technology, and is a bit more svelte, so it can serve as your everyday watch if you don’t mind charging it every night.

Flex Touchscreen Interface: Warp Before You Scroll

Flex Touchscreen Interface: Warp Before You Scroll
Scrolling is one of the most frequent actions made in interacting with touchscreen devices. For me it’s such a basic action that I actually didn’t think too much of it, until I saw this new control interface developed by a research team at Osaka University.

Corning’s Vision of the Future is Filled With Glass (and Computers)

Corning’s Vision of the Future is Filled With Glass (and Computers)
Videos that depict the future of computers crop up every now and then, and although they are fun to watch, most of them are more flash than substance. This clip from Corning Inc. – the glass and ceramics company that gave us Gorilla Glass, among other things –  is no better, since it’s obviously a very biased conceptualization, but it does contain a few neat, if not mind-blowing, ideas.

Fujitsu Unveils the World’s Second Dual Touchscreen Android Phone

Fujitsu Unveils the World’s Second Dual Touchscreen Android Phone
Kyocera caught everyone’s attention when they introduced Echo, a dual touchscreen phone running Android. The Echo didn’t stay unique for long though, because Fujitsu recently showed off their own dual touchscreen Android phone at the Mobile World Congress 2011.

Massive Curved Touchscreen Measures 33-Feet Wide

Massive Curved Touchscreen Measures 33-Feet Wide
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.

Kyocera Echo: 2 Screens, 1 Phone

Kyocera Echo: 2 Screens, 1 Phone
Kyocera isn’t exactly well known in the smartphone industry. Until today that is, with the unveiling of the Echo, which has two 3.5″ touchscreens that can be used as a single 4.7″ screen with an equivalent resolution of 960 x 800.
