Hiranao Tsuboi of Japan has designed a LED-based watch that cannot be simpler. There are two ways to look at it. One, it looks like a bracelet with no evidence of a watch. Two, it is a watch built right into the band. Either way you see it, it is definitely interesting !
A recent report from NPD says that Apple’s iPhone is currently the best selling mobile phone in the US. That means after a long time Motorola RAZR is no longer the “one”. This report is for the 3rd quarter of 2008.
If there is any thing which frustrates an iPhone/iPod user, is its inability to copy and paste any text content. Image you write something up and then you have to write the same thing again and again with out the ability to just copy and paste….what can be more frustrating than this? Not to worry. Now all you need is to just buy TextGuru (Brancipater, US$4.99) or MagicPad (Proximi, Inc., US$3.99).
Good news for YouTube fans. MGM announced that they will be posting full-length movies in YouTube soon. Ofcourse, you cannot expect to see any blockbuster out there, but hey…a full length movie is still…well a full length movie. Some achieved movies/TV series like the Bulletproof Monk, The Magnificent Seven and American Gladiator will be the starters.
The highest recorded speed of a MagLev (Magnetic Levitation) train was tested in Japan in 2003. So how much was the speed? A mind-boggling 581 km/h (361 mph) which is 6 km/h faster than the conventional TGV speed record.
iPhone is by far the world’s most favorite all-purpose mobile phone of all time. Absolutely no doubt about this. With thousand of softwares coming up you can practically do a million things with it. One such software is called Ocarina, from Smule. If you listen to the tunes generated by this application, it literally sounds like an Ocarina. Very sweet, very “flute”ish and ofcourse very very nice !
It seems the world’s first device closest to a video game was basically a “Cathode-Ray Tube Amusement Device” developed by Thomas Goldsmith and Estle Ray Mann. This device used “eight vacuum tubes to make a tiny glowing speck of light appear to fire, missile-like, at tiny line-like targets…”. And how exactly did the players control the objects? Using knobs !! A patent was applied in 1947 for this device.
You no longer may need to dip your toe or get your fingers burnt or frozen, to check the temperature of your bath water. Although currently in a conceptual stage, designer Kai Chan has come up with a LED-based Bath Light which changes colors based on the temperature of the water. The device can also be used just as a simple bath light or a candle (in which the LED flickers softly).
